Critic Reviews for The Unkindest Cut

On the strength of the third excellent Empire episode in a row, it's now safe to declare the show on a hot streak.

Every now and then... the show will hit it out of the park. It's like Empire suddenly got a full night of sleep and had an açaí-smoothie bowl before showing up to work instead of snorting a packet of Emergen-C like it usually does.

NESSA IS COLD!!!!! I was on her team before, but I don't think so anymore.

You've got to feel for Cookie Lyon. Everything she does is for the good of her family, and everything they do seems designed to sabotage it.

There's no denying Dre's methods prove effective in bending Gina Gershon's absolutely ridiculous/fabulous/not-so-subtly racist fashion designer Helene von Wyatt to his will.
