Empire Promo: Season 1, Episode 9: “Unto the Breach” (VIDEO)
After last night's episode of Empire, the Lyon family seems more divided than ever. But based on the promo for next week's Season 1, Episode 9 ("Unto the Breach"), another major shakeup is coming when Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) calls Anika (Grace Gealey) out for her backstabbing ways.
Of course, that's not all that's going on in this promo. Jamal (Jussie Smollett) connects with a talented singer named Delphine (played by Estelle!), and he uses it to challenge Lucious (Terrence Howard) to look past his homophobia for the sake of Empire, which we doubt the Lyon patriarch will take well. Plus, Andre (Trai Byers) is spiraling out of control, the Lyon brothers get into a fight, and so much more.
One scene we're really looking forward to? The one teased at the end of this promo, where Lucious stands off against Billy Beretti (Judd Nelson). Barbs are thrown, guns are drawn, and it looks like it's going to be a scene to remember.
This promo also teases the guest stars that are heading our way over the next few weeks, including Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Jennifer Hudson, and more. We. Cannot. Wait.
