Empire Season 2 Promo Shocker: Cookie in a Cage!?

Good news for Empire‘s Lucious Lyon: Unlike so many of us, he looks pretty good in head-to-toe orange.

Better still, Jamal, his erstwhile black sheep son (but current heir to his record-label throne), is performing in major outdoor venues with a #FreeLucious banner behind him. Yep, as the Season 2 teaser trailer for Fox’s ratings sensation promises, it’s a “new Empire.”

That said, what in tarnation is Lucious’ ex-wife Cookie doing behind bars? (OK, it’s kind of a sexy, on-stage situation, but please tell us Jamal isn’t relegating her to backup-singer duties as punishment for consorting with Boo-Boo Kitty.)

Press PLAY above for the full situation — fret not, Taraji P. Henson is serving wardrobe for dayyyyys, honey! — then sound off with your thoughts!

    I can’t wait for the new season. I am concerned about Jamal. It’s okay if he has to do some shady things in order to retain control of the company, but he can’t ignore the fact that his father is a murderer.

      I think he’ll be getting on my nerves this season.

        why? he wasn’t even in the trailer , so obviously you a;ready made your mind up about it your just looking for a reason

        • Ugonna Wosu says:

          First, he was in the trailer(how could you miss “free Lucious”?), second, shoo fly don’t bother me. It’s a damned TV show.

          • Annie says:

            I think that the writers need to be careful with how they portray Jamal. At the end of the season he looked weak. They should have had him use his brain to get the company and deal with Baretti. I know that people love Cookie, but Jamal’s complex relationships with each of his family members was a big draw too, and they shouldn’t change that.

    I see Boo Boo Kitty is still hanging around. Interesting. I guess she and Hakeem are more connected than we thought?
