[ # ] Gee, I wonder which Lyon is going to end up in the coffin on Empire?
March 26th, 2019 under Empire, Jussie Smollett
When this season of Empire we saw Lucious Lyon standing in front of a closed coffin and to this day we do not know who it is. Fox has been a running a promo saying we will find out who it is. However, do they really need to? I think we all know who it is.

We know it is not Lucious’ bastard son Kingsley because why would Cookie care about him? Is it Andre? He finally got an interesting story this year, so I doubt it is him. What about Hakeem? His storyline seems to have dried up, but there is still plenty they can do with him.

That means the only one left is Jamal. Could it be him because of Jussie Smollett’s troubles outside of work and the fact that he was written out of the last two episodes?

If it is him, they might have jumped too soon. That is because his attorneys, Tina Glandian and Patricia Brown Holmes, told WLS statement, “Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgement.

“Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result.

“Jussie is relieved to have this situation behind him and is very much looking forward to getting back to focusing on his family, friends and career.”

Which I guess, that in the process of me starting this post and him being cleared of all criminal charges, we still don’t know who is in that coffin. We also are back to not knowing what happened on that night? Was he attacked? Why were the two brothers in the area on that night during that early morning hour and seem to have items that were said to be used in the attack?

Why were all of the criminal charges dropped against him? My first thought is that he sold out Mark Geragos, his lawyer who is having his own legal woes. Although, in my heart, I hope it is because he is innocent like he has always said that he is.

UPDATE: The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office released this statement, “After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollett’s volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case.”
