Empire: If Lucious Lyon is the Devil…Can He Possibly Ever Have Good Intentions?

Empire! Empire! Empire!

Where do I start? Isn’t this show just my favorite?

Nearly all, if not all of Empire cast members have faults. They have all done something in their past or present that was outright wrong. However, the villain of the show will always be Luscious. This man is just evil on another level and just like the third episode is titled “The Devil Quotes Scripture”, so does he. He is a nasty human being that always justifies his atrocities. Luscious always claims that that the intentions behind all of his actions are good intentions. He shuns his second son Jamal because of his sexuality, beats up a manager who disagrees with his decisions about a music video and worst of all, covers up a murder.

So the deal is, is it possible to do something bad with an end for the common good? Does killing a murderer make the community a safer place to live in or does it replace the murderer with another one? I think luscious is doing all these to save his own skin and that it is all for his selfish interests. Two wrongs can never make a right and Luscious is just a man full of himself!

This is quite tricky to say the least because a lot of historians would point to the fact that a lot of celebrated figures have killed for the greater good. But Luscious Lyon have done some really bad thing (killing Bucky) so I’m not sure he can get out of this one.. He will always be the villian and isnt that the reason why we love?

I know right? The whole reason we love him is because we do not know his next evil plan. I however still do not see how killing is for the greater good though 🙁

I had to give up on this show once Luscious crazy mama came into the picture. I was like what are we doing??? The drama just got so over the top for me I couldn’t take it. However, in answer to your question my answer is NO Luscious don’t have no damn good intentions. His intentions are completely selfish and because he’s evil his intentions could never possibly be good.
