Harper made a huge move against Lucious by dropping the big family secret to Andre that Lucious’ mother is alive. So, what’s next for Harper? HollywoodLife.com got the scoop straight from Annie Ilonzeh!
Harper one-upped the Lucious Lyon on the April 27 episode of Empire, and Annie Ilonzeh teases EXCLUSIVELY that Lucious has got a “serious move” to play in return. Plus, does Harper have real feelings for Lucious? Check out the latest Empire spoilers now!
What’s Harper’s next move in the upcoming episode?
Well, I’d say that Lucious has a move first to play after the big reveal with the information that she has given Andre. Just knowing the pattern of the show, he’s got a serious move to play and we’ll see that.
Does Harper have any real feelings for Lucious?
I do believe that Harper — she got swept up in the web of charm that Lucious has. He spins this web and eventually you’re going to get caught in it. I think that’s exactly where Harper found herself, and she was very surprised that she would somewhat get denied by him. She was not expecting that whatsoever. I think she thought that this was her power play and she was going to win and it didn’t turn out that way in the end. She ends up trying to get revenge in the end with providing information to Andre, which I think probably for more selfish reasons to get back at Lucious because her pride was shot after that.
Would Harper ever really go after Cookie?
I think Harper sees Cookie as a little bit of a threat, a challenge. She knows that Cookie has this stance in Lucious’ life that somewhat bothers her personally. But I think at the same time she knows Cookie’s powerful and there’s no reason to kind of go for broke, where you’re going to go after Cookie and Lucious and the family. Who wants the Lyon family against them? Especially Cookie. The Lyon family — Lucious is enough — but then to have Cookie and then you get the boys, you got a back out and throw in the towel. I think she knows her place to a certain extent. I think it’s fun for her to side-eye Cookie here and there, be amused by the fact that she’s big and boisterous, but there’s not reason to step into the ring with her. Because at the end of day, I think it’s two powerful women that get it. And you respect each other. There’s respect there that Harper has toward Cookie for sure.
Is Harper scared of Lucious?
I know that she’s done her research. I think Harper is put up on game with Lucious. I think there’s just caution, treading at a certain speed. She treads lightly. You’ve got to be careful with him. What’s so mysterious and gravitating about him is the unknown. He’s got this mysterious quality that you’re like, “Do you want to strangle me or do you want to hug me and kiss me?” You don’t know. But there’s something so sexy about that — that mystery and that power.
