Empire Hostage Episode

Empire never skimps on the drama, instead preferring to cram as many (addictive and highly entertaining) storylines into one episode as possible. Which is why it’s a perfect time to hold the Lyon family hostage while they’re in the middle of a war with a rival record label.

“A huge, huge bombshell is dropped of what we thought was the truth and Lucious is behind all of it,” Jussie Smollett told People when the cast dished on next week’s “Sins of the Father” episode. In addition to exploring illegitimate children, secret marriages, longterm prison time, federal investigations, fraud, mental illness, ALS, drug addiction, sexuality, and murder, Empire is throwing in a hostage situation, because sure. Suddenly, the odds that someone other than Lucious or Andre might not make it to season two now seem much more likely.

In addition to facing death, Lucious has a showdown with Hakeem’s boo Camilla (Naomi Campbell) and Jennifer Hudson stops by to nurse Andre back to health. But do we really think that baby is Jamal’s? Where is the paternity test?!

What do you think? Is Empire stuffing too much action into each episode, or do you like your dysfunctional rich families to unwrap a new problem (without solving others) every week?

Manish Arora created a fantasy land of warrior princesses and tribal chiefs in his Paris fashion show

apple_watch_sensorAhead of Monday’s media event where Apple is expected to provide final details on the Apple Watch, a new report from TechCrunch details a hidden “diagnostic port” inside one of the channels on the Apple Watch where watch bands slip into place. While the port is currently used only for diagnostic purposes, the report argues it could be used in the future to interface with “smart band” accessories bringing additional functionality to the watch.

The port has a 6-dot brass contact array inside the groove for the ‘bottom’ strap connector slot. Several sources have confirmed its existence and placement to me. It is very similar to the connector for the Lightning connector in iPhones, as that connector currently only uses 6 of its 8 available pins. Apple recently began opening up the Lightning port for use by third parties. A source says that this port is currently for diagnostic purposes only — but that there is nothing preventing it from being a connection port for future accessories.

TechCrunch‘s Matthew Panzarino is careful to state that he has no knowledge of any plans by Apple to launch such smart band accessories, but the idea remains an intriguing one. Possibilities for such bands include additional sensors, external batteries integrated into a band, and more.

Apple revealed a number of high-level details about the Apple Watch at the device’s unveiling last September, but even now with a launch set for next month there is still much that remains unknown, including pricing details beyond the $349 starting price. Apple will undoubtedly address many of the details at Monday’s events, but some of the technical details will likely need to wait until the device launches and users and technical experts can get a closer look at the device.

Meet your newest TV obsession Damon Dayoub, who just signed on to Shonda Rhimes‘ upcoming series The Catch. Don’t get us wrong, Shondaland‘s resident hotties President Fitz, Jake Ballard, and Connor Walsh hold a special place in our hearts, but suddenly that place has turned into more of a small, hollow crevice.

THR reports that the actor has been cast as the male lead in ABC’s upcoming thriller about an engaged woman (Mireille Enos) about to get conned (based on the novel by Kate Atkinson). But enough about the plot. Let’s take time to appreciate this beauty.

He’s pumped, and so are we.

Umm, this is real.

Your eyes do not deceive you.

Shonda, you’re our spirit animal.

The show premiere date is TBD, but you can catch him on ABC Family’s Stitchers and revisit episodes of Dallas and VH1′s Single Ladies to get a glimpse in the meantime.

We can all benefit from Shonda’s exquisite taste in men.
