Empire Season 2 is finally here, and we were left with plenty of WTF moments to tide us over until next week’s episode.
After a year of waiting, we finally have a new premiere episode for Empire, and by was the wait worth it. When we lat left Cookie and Lucious, one of them was going to jail and the other was trying to determine what the next move for the empire was. It was a perfect script flip from what happened at the beginning of the series with Cookie getting out of prison and Lucious determining the next move for his music empire.
But now it’s Lucious in prison and Cookie on the loose — and everything we saw in the season premiere of Empire suggests we’re going to be in for a a thrilling season. We had a murder plot, a failed hit on Lucious and a few major power plays that involved the flipping of a few scripts on a couple of characters who didn’t see it coming.
Before we take a look at next week’s episode and get ready for another episode of Empire, let’s recoup and take one more look at the biggest and most important WTF moments from this week’s season premiere.
