When we last saw the Lyon clan in Empire Season 3 Episode 9, Cookie had just learned that new love and New York mayoral candidate Angelo had killed a girl in a DUI when he was a teenager. Not good, for their relationship or his campaign!
Naturally, Lucious was the one who divulged this information, both to Cookie and to the media, so desperate was he to keep his beloved ex-wife away from another man.
With whom should Cookie be more furious with: Angelo, for keeping this secret from her, or Lucious, for taking such delight out of rubbing his rival's indiscretions in her face?
Either way, there will be hell to pay when Empire returns for its spring premiere on Wednesday, March 22 at 9/8c on Fox.
Check out these photos from Empire Season 3 Episode 10, aptly titled "Sound & Fury", to get a taste of what is to come! And remember, if you need to refresh your memory before the premiere, you can watch Empire online via TV Fanatic.
Into the Inferno - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
I don't think devious Lucious has ever looked more at home than in front of a wall of fire bearing the word Inferno. Perhaps this is foreshadowing the hellish fate Andre has in store for him?
Cookie is seeing red - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
Fresh off of her role in the Oscar-nominated (and absolutely wonderful) Hidden Figures, Taraji P. Henson is on top of her game. But, Cookie's situation is a little less ideal. At least she still has a killer wardrobe?
They tried to make him go to rehab... - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
The last time we saw Jamal, his family announced they were shipping him off to rehab following his performance at The People's Ball. He's looking better here, so fingers crossed he's been able to face his demons and move on.
What's going on between D-Major and Jamal? - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
D-Major may be fine, but he's also a bad influence on Jamal, and an enable of his drug use. Here's to hoping Jamal will be spending less time with him and more time with Philip when the show returns.
Andre the betrayer - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
After a final heart to heart with the ghost of his dead wife, Andre decided to murder his father and take over Empire. Not sure if teaming up with Shyne to do it is a good idea, but we'll see. Right now, Andre seems to be sitting pretty.
The littlest Lyon grows up? - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
Hakeem might be a dad now, but he's still immature enough on enough other levels to feel like a child. Will his rivalry with Andre and relationship with Tiana force him to finally grow up?
What's Shyne up to now? - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
Shyne is set to team up with Andre to take down Lucious. But will these two ambitious men immediately turn on each other if they succeed? Perhaps Nessa can keep them from killing each other, too.
Nessa and Andre are not playing nice - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
Nessa and Andre have their eyes on the prize...but you know it won't be easy to off Lucious, even with Shyne on their side.
Becky is here for it - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
If there was any justice on this show (and there seems to very little of it, considering Lucious is still around), Becky would take over Empire.
Takeem are back in action! - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
It's Hakeem and Tiana versus Andre and Nessa after the latter two teamed up to sabotage Tiana's big fashion show appearance. I wouldn't bet my money on the younger Lyon over his big bad brother, though.
Want some Lemonade with your Cookie? - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
After Lucious spilled Angelo's ugly secret to the media AND to Cookie, it's no surprise that Cookie would decide to go all "Beyonce in Lemonade" on his sorry behind with a baseball bat. And of course, she still looks stylish while doing it.
This Cookie does not crumble - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
Cookie is so unbelievably fierce. I have serious envy of her entire ensemble here, not to mention her ability to stomp around so forcefully in those spiky heels. If that was me, I'd end up accidentally breaking an ankle instead of Lucious' gold records.
Reconciliation for Cookie and Lucious? - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
I know we just saw Cookie coming after Lucious with a baseball bat, but here they appear to be united against a common foe, whoever that they may. Are they destined to end up together after all?
The devil himself - Empire Season 3 Episode 10
Where do you think that blood on Lucious' head came from? Cookie's baseball bat? Shyne's cronies? Tariq's FBI colleagues? Whatever the answer, one thing is for sure: Lucious will make sure the perpetrator pays.
