‘Empire’ Has a Bad Case of the Baby Snatchers

On Empire, everyone had baby fever after Child Protective Services took Bella from the Lyons, but it got even worse when they mysteriously couldn’t find the baby in the CPS computer system. With Bella mysteriously lost and no paper trail to track her down, Cookie did what Cookie does best and put the squeeze on her ex-boyfriend, Angelo. As her crew threw punches at him, it was clear he had no idea where little Bella really was. And although Mama Dubois told Angelo she had nothing to do with taking the little Lyon, it turned out her baby fever was the worst of all — at home, she introduced Angelo to the newest member of the Dubois family, baby Bella.

And Bella wasn’t the only baby taking center stage. Last week, Rhonda told Andre that Anika pushed their daughter down the stairs to her death, and this week he was kind of mad about it. Throwing Anika on the couch, he threatened her life, and she actually wanted him to kill her, saying, “I wanted so badly to be a Lyon. I sold my soul, and now my baby … I deserve to suffer!” But he decided not to murder Anika, instead letting her suffer in life.

Empire airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Fox. Watch clips and full episodes of Empire for free on Yahoo View.
