The last season of Empire ended with a shocking moment, a cat fight ended in the death of one particular character. A character so normal to the Lyon dynasty that this pre,I er episode seemed a bit off after discovering they are now dead, and were replaced by a familiar face in Hollywood.
Familiar to last season, the long standing feud between Hakeem; Luscious and the family’s half brother Tariq is all but still present. Federal investigators are still wildly after the Lyon gang for murder and deception, something, Cookie is now desperately trying to prevent.
Jamal’s long rumored boyfriend makes a brief appearance in the season premiere, as the family continues to struggle over Luscious’s trouble with Jamal. The episode got real juicy when it delved deeper into Hakeem being abandoned at the altar, something that was prominently displayed in the last season.
After er blowback and backlash, we removed the name of the character who died in the roof battle last season.
In this episode, the most notable feat is the FBI investigation — Cookie’s crazy sister is still flirting with the FBI agent who may or may not be considered similar to an agent of darkness. After much brouhaha and corporate espionage, Luscious, is finally back at the helm of his streaming service and attempting to expand his legacy.
Empire premieres tomorrow to the general public on Fox.
