* HarsherInHindsight: Terrence Howard's spousal abuse accusations cast quite a pall over any scenes about Luscious' conflicts with his family.
** Some fans were uneasy about Lucious firing a machine gun in his study after [[spoiler: Hakeem's betrayal]] in 'Et Tu, Brute?'. Long story short, the episode premiered on December 2, 2015, the same day of the San Bernardino shooting.

* TakeAThirdOption: In "True Love Never", Lucious tasks Andre with seducing an assistant district attorney so she'll drop the gang charges on Freda. Andre has two options: choose to do it and end up disgracing his newfound faith, or choose not to do it and get fired again. So, he uses said trope by blackmailing said district attorney, effectively ensuring a win-win for his faith and Empire.
* WhatAnIdiot: Porhsa jumped a subway turnstile and when ticketed, she gave her name as [[spoiler: '''Cookie Lyon'''.]] [[GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity Oh, she got fired and then rehired.]]
