Cookie did not simply ended her engagement to Angelo. On “Empire” Season 3, episode 15, it will be revealed that she may have just started a war that the Lyon family is not prepared to face.

“Angelo’s (Taye Diggs) relationship with Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) turns toxic and leaves her questioning her decisions,” the synopsis for “Civil Hands Unclean” teases.

In the promo for the Fox series, Lucious (Terrence Howard) can be seen congratulating Cookie on her engagement. However, she tells him that she said no to Angelo’s proposal.

Angelo is later seen telling Cookie that she destroyed his entire world. Diana DuBois (Phylicia Rashad) then follows up on her son’s words with a threat, telling Cookie that her entire family will burn to the ground.

“At the same time, Hakeem (Bryshere Gray) makes a public plea for Lucious to give him paternity of Bella during his return to Empire Xstream,” the synopsis for  “Empire” Season 3, episode 15 says.

Although Hakeem doesn’t get screen time in the promo, in a sneak peek, he can be seen standing on a table, possibly performing in his notoriously dramatic fashion. Hakeem has been spending more time with Bella lately in an attempt to be a good father, so his request isn’t surprising.

“Meanwhile, Cookie becomes increasingly more suspicious of Lucious’ intentions with Giuliana (Nia Long) and Empire’s future in Vegas,” the synopsis for “Civil Hands Unclean” states.

In the promo, after telling Lucious that she won’t be marrying Angelo, it becomes clear that Lucious and Giuliana are more serious than Cookie thought they were. She even asks Lucious if he has Giuliana living at his home.

In the sneak peek, it is also revealed that the Lyons will sit down to a family dinner that will go awry. Although it is uncertain why the group has gathered at Lucious’ mansion, it is clear that family business needs to be handled. However, the meal will be interrupted by law enforcement who are there to take a Lyon into custody. Unfortunately, the Lyon being apprehended is not revealed in the sneak peek.

However, Cookie is seen looking worried and stressed about the presence of the authorities and who they are taking into custody. The Lyons tend to find themselves in trouble, but will they be able to make it over this hurdle?

“Lucious and Jamal (Jussie Smollett) work overtime to finish their albums,” the synopsis teases. In the promo for the Fox series Lucious, Cookie and Jamal are seen in the studio looking ecstatic as if they just laid down a hit, but will this joy last?

It’s no secret that Lucious feels like he is in competition with Jamal over creating a new album. Could this studio session be the beginning of a war between father and son once again?

“Empire” Season 3, episode 15 airs at Wednesday at 9 p.m. EDT on Fox.
