‘Empire’ Season 1, Episode 2: ‘The Outspoken King’


Empire season 1, episode 2 airs tonight on Fox.

Lucious goes into damage control when controversy arises around the involvement of one of his artists in a shooting ahead of Empire’s IPO launch, and Cookie proves to be invaluable by helping turn a crisis into a triumph. However, Lucious’s plan to stage a huge performance for Hakeem, but not Jamal, doesn’t sit well with his ex. Meanwhile, the police begin to investigate Bunkie’s murder.

Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard, CrashHustle & Flow) is the king of hip-hop. An immensely talented artist, the CEO of Empire Entertainment and a former street thug, his reign has been unchallenged for years. But all that changes, when he learns he has a disease that is going to render him disabled and incapacitated in a matter of three years. The clock is ticking, and he must groom one of his three sons to take over his crowning achievement, without destroying his already fractured family.

Empire season 1, episode 2 airs Jan. 14 at 9 p.m. EST on Fox.
