The delicious soap found Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) revealing he’s not dying of ALS; he was misdiagnosed, and he proceeded to dole out a jet to Hakeem, a foundation to Dre and his empire to Jamal, before getting arrested for Bunkie’s murder.
Starring Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard and Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson, and featuring music by prolific producers Timbaland, Jim Beanz and Ne-Yo, Empire is from Academy Award nominee Lee Daniels, Emmy Award victor Danny Strong and Academy Award- and Emmy Award-winning producer Brian Grazer. But the way they write it is so clever, because that’s how she is. “That’s what she would do”. The last time FOX saw this much success after the premiere of a scripted series was with “House” in 2009.
And like any TV fan, Henson went to a popular source to learn about prison life. They can also choose to binge-watch the entire first season of the hip hop musical series prior by subscribing to its membership plan for $7.99 per month.
Per metered market data, Wednesday’s second season premiere posted a stellar 10.4 overnight household rating. I mean, she just embodies her in a way that I don’t think anybody else could have done.
And now that the temporary distraction is out of the way, we can only imagine what Lucious Lyon has planned for Cookie and the gang. How did she go in? It’s an opportunity to talk about where Cookie came from and where she is now, and the disparities between extreme poverty and extreme wealth that are hard to talk about and fascinating.
“Keep Your Money”, a song from the fifth episode, by Jamal, was created as a message to Lucious that he doesn’t want his money.
“Empire” season 2 airs on Fox. “You got a war with me,” Lucious told Frank, before ordering fellow jailbirds to kill him. I will say this. So what do spoilers and predictions say will happen to Cookie, Lucious and the gang on the rest of Season 2 of Empire?
The Lyon family was still a divided mess in last night’s episode, but it’s divided a little differently than it was past year.
“Empire” will premiere Wednesday, September 23 at 9 p.m. EDT on Fox and will be available the next day via FOXNOW, Xfinity, iTunes and Hulu.
