In the next episode, titled “True Love Never,” Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) will continue to use his power to demolish the Lyon Dynasty so that the Empire can stay on top of the music industry. He plans to work with Jago (Patrick Mulvey) to turn Empire into a “global music monolith.”
Will he succeed? Nobody has been able to defeat Lucious so far, not even a federal agent who had a star witness to a murder he committed.
While Lucious is at Empire, his ex-wife Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) is working to get Lyon Dynasty on top. In Season 2 Episode 7 of “Empire,” she will push to get her company involved in a major charity concert.
