Lucious (Terrence Howard) is on the warpath to make Empire his company once again on “Empire” Season 2. The former CEO will stop at nothing to get back what he helped build, even if it means striking down his own son Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray), whom he threatened to kill in episode 11. Will Lucious take extreme actions in episode 12, titled “A Rose By Any Other Name”?
New promo photos show that Lucious will make his way back into the building in episode 12, but it’s unclear what he’s doing there. The preview video teases him facing off against Camilla (Naomi Campbell), even going as far as to point a gun at her. A photo shows Camilla crying and looking scared during the confrontation.
The video also reveals that Hakeem will start to get more comfortable with his role in episode 12. The youngest Lyon changes the company’s logo to an image of his face. He may also get a jump-start on new music as it looks like he might hop back into the studio with his brother Jamal (Jussie Smollett).
You can watch the promo video below:
Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) will try to get the company back for Lucious before he turns to violence. She wants nothing more than to find a way to get Camilla out of Empire and away from Hakeem. Meanwhile, Jamal will have to deal with backlash from his fans, which may or may not be related to his brief fling with Skye (Alicia Keys).
“Empire” Season 2, episode 12, airs on Fox Wednesday, April 6, at 9 p.m. EDT. Check out several photos from “A Rose by Any Other Name” below:
