It's only natural that Andre would want a claim to the company, but Jamal is probably playing coy at this stage about his plans, but will Rhonda try to lay down the law? Yes, but she'll be quickly ushered to the side.
Anike sure looks happy. Is she still hitting bone town with her former son in law? Probably, but Cookie would love to "Bye Felicia," her again and smack her down. Will she have a reason to in the premiere?
Is Lucious acting like a jukebox? It sure looks that way. The inmates must get pretty bored, so playing some live shows on the inside will be sure to keep his head in the game for when he inevitably gets out.
Are the Lyons celebrating Lucious' freedom, or is there something else going on? I'm going to go with the latter. Someone has been given control of the company and I'm betting these two are looking right at the lucky winner.
It's judgement day for Lucious as he is told whether he is a free man. For drama purposes, don't expect him to get out of the knick in the premiere. The other Lyons need to fall apart in their quest for the company first.
Is Cookie sharing some tips about how to survive on the inside with Lucious? We can only imagine the way she'd be talking down to him with her witty one liners. Will Lucious actually be nice to her? Probably, at least until he gets out.
It's never going to be sunshine and roses for the Lyons, so either one of these two are up to something and it probably involves stealing control of the company from the other, but will it cost them their relationship?
Who'd have thought that back when Empire kicked off, these two brothers would be able to sing on stage? Lucious LOVED putting a wedge between them, but it seems clear now that Cookie is doing her best to keep the family together.
It looks like the Lyon clan are far from ready to let Lucious' imprisonment stick. They want their cause to be heard and if that means singing it, then they'll do it. It is a bit shocking that Cookie is present. Is she doing it for her kids, or does she still hold a torch for her treacherous ex?
We all know that Jamal has the best voice on the show, so we can't wait to hear what the new songs are and also all the details about why he's playing this gig. There are so many questions going into the new season and I can't wait to see how it all plays out!
