Empire Promo: Season 1, Episode 8: “The Lyon’s Roar” (VIDEO)
There are only four nights of Empire left in the first season (sob), and based on this promo for next week's Season 1, Episode 8 ("The Lyon's Roar") and beyond, things are only going to get crazier from here, with more huge guest stars, more awesome music, and, of course, more juicy drama.
There's a lot going on in this promo, so you'll have to check it out, but let's talk about our favorite parts. To start, it looks like the aftermath of Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Cookie's (Taraji P. Henson) steamy hook-up is going to be good. The promo opens with Cookie revealing that Lucious is the only man she's ever been with (being in jail for 17 years will do that to a person), and demanding that he get rid of Anika before he gets to taste her, uh, cookies again. But does he really go through with dumping his current gal? We see him hook up with Cookie again, so clearly he tells her things are over with Boo Boo Kitty — but we also see him trying to make up with Anika. Will he end up playing both of them? We wouldn't put it past him.
This promo also teases guest stars like Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, and Snoop Dogg (and it looks like they all perform on the show), plus a possible new romance for Jamal (Jussie Smollett), and much more. Check it out here!
