The drama continues for the Lyon family as more spoiler alerts for the return of Fox’s Empire have been revealed.
According to a synopsis for the episode called "Death Will Have His Day," released recently, Lucious Lyon is taking drastic steps to make sure that he reigns on top of the Empire company once again. He was ousted by his ex-wife Cookie Lyon and his youngest son Hakeem Lyon. And of course she isn’t going to make it easy for him.
As if that wasn’t enough drama to make the family complete, Rhonda and Andre are still dealing with a mystery person pushing her down the stairs at the height of her pregnancy. It’s not clear if the child will survive.
A synopsis said, “Lucious announces he will stop at nothing to be at the top of his company again, but he’ll have to make his way past Cookie first. Meanwhile, Rhonda, Andre and the rest of the Lyon family struggle to come with terms with a horrific tragedy that will change their lives forever.”
It might be safe to say that Andre is bowing out of the competition for the leader of Empire and focusing on his faith and his family.
A visual promo for the return has also been released.
Cookie is questioning Hakeem, “Why would you do this to your family?” while his ex-girlfriend Camille returns and asks if he wants to take over Empire.
It’s safe to say he’s all for it as he jumps on a table and exclaims, “It’s my birthright.”
Jamal Lyon, who once ruled the empire himself, warns Hakeem of letting the power get the best of him while Cookie calls Hakeem out for “ruining our legacy.”
Andre is seen extremely emotional in a hospital lobby, hinting that something could have happened to the child while Camille instructs someone to “kill” someone else.
See the explosive return Wednesday at 9/8c on Fox.
