If you mess with Lucious and Cookie Lyon, you’re going to get burned. The midseason trailer for ‘Empire’ is absolutely jaw-dropping. Cookie and Lucious must work together to get their kingdom back, and sparks fly in the process. Click to WATCH!
“The heart of Empire is its family,” Lucious Lyon says in the opening moments of Empire’s midseason trailer. Well, the Lyon family has never been more broken. Hakeem’s betrayed his family and sided with Camilla, Andre’s reeling from Rhonda’s attack, and more. Plus, Cookie and Lucious find themselves back in each other’s arms. Check out the trailer now!
“When the family is in crisis, they come together,” Lucious (Terrence Howard) says in the trailer. Well, part of the reason the family is in crisis is because of Hakeem (Bryshere Gray). As we all know, Hakeem sided with Camilla (Naomi Campbell) when she took over Empire. She asks Hakeem if he wants to be CEO of Empire. “It’s my birthright,” he says.
Jamal (Jussie Smollett) knows the kind of power that Hakeem has now could spell trouble for his baby brother. “Be careful. This whole thing will bring out the worst in you,” Jamal says to Hakeem.
One person who is FURIOUS about being ousted from Empire? Lucious Lyon. He built the company, with Cookie’s help, from the ground up, and now they’re on the outside looking in. Not for long, though. “I’m going to take back my kingdom, and you’re going to help me,” Lucious says to Cookie (Taraji P. Henson).
Lucious and Cookie have been at odds, but they have one hell of a history together. Jamal worries about his mom getting too close to Lucious again. “What me and your father got is very deep,” she tells her son. “You just don’t throw all that away because of a few misunderstandings.” Will they get back together?
Elsewhere in the trailer, Andre (Trai Byers) is seen losing it after Rhonda’s attack? Will the baby and Rhonda survive? Gosh, we don’t know if Andre will be able to handle such heartbreak. Empire returns March 30.
