Lucious doesn't look too happy as he gesticulates to Jamal, and Tory doesn't look like she's feeling so hot either. Is she having a hard time adjusting to being back on stage again after so long out of the spotlight? I wouldn't blame her if she was.
Angelo looks a bit taken aback by Lucious here. I hope he hasn't just learned about Cookie's moment of passion with her ex. She may have pulled the plug before things went too far, but one thing's for sure: there is still a lot of electricity between Cookie and Lucious.
Nessa and Veronica have similar old-school, soul-influenced styles of singing, so I imagine any duet involving the two of them would be pretty epic. And you know Nessa wouldn't mind having an ally like Veronica in her war against Tiana.
I hope Tory's re-introduction to the music business isn't going to be too much for her to handle. I don't trust the Lyons to have her best interests at heart. Hopefully another breakdown is not in store for her.
Look at the side-eye Cookie is shooting in Tory's direction. That is all suspicion, with a side of shade. I'm sure it has something to do with Lucious being in the studio, considering that Tory had already professed her admiration for him. Does she think Tory is using Jamal to get to his father?
After their bizarre encounter at the end of the premiere, I'm surprised that Cookie can handle being in the same room as Lucious right now. Hopefully they can put their drama aside, at least temporarily, for the sake of Jamal and his new music.
This is SUCH a quintessentially Cookie Lyon outfit. Only Cookie would be bold enough to wear not one, but two different leopard-print items of clothing, and pair them with a sporty gold hat that is so shiny you could probably reapply your lipstick by using it as a mirror. I ache with envy of her fabulousness.
I really enjoyed Rumer Willis's debut as Jamal's snarky rehab buddy-turned-musical collaborator, Tory Ash. It looks like she's set to play a pretty big role in Jamal's musical rebirth post-rehab. I'm excited to hear how her smoky, bluesy voice and vibe influence his sound.
Lucious seems to have recovered just fine from Cookie's passionate bout of bat-wielding. Will he set out to destroy her for what she did, or will he try to win her back instead? Knowing Lucious, he'll somehow try to do both.
Okay, look...I have no predictions or insights to offer based on this image. This is just two random members of the Lyon family together in the same photo. I don't know what they're up to, but since it's the Lyons, I'm sure it's not good.
