Fall TV Preview

Empire Season 2 Premiere First Look: Courtroom Cookie, Chessboard Lucious and Special Guest... Don Lemon?

The first episodic photos from Season 2 of Empire are here — and the good news is that Cookie Lyon is rocking three completely different hairstyles. (Hey, just because we’re focusing on the superficial doesn’t mean our priorities aren’t in the right place!)

There’s “my ex is on trial” Cookie, a cascade of curls framing her conflicted face. There’s “public persona” Cookie, with her locks pulled back into a tight bun (the better to impress CNN’s Don Lemon?). There’s even a Cookie with dramatic bangs (a nice complement to her talon-like nails and brown liquor).Of course, the 21 photos from “The Devils Are Here” aren’t merely about Taraji P. Henson’s alter ego. There’s Lucious standing triumphant over a board game in the prison yard. There’s Jamal once again (seemingly) playing background for Hakeem. And there’s Boo Boo Kitty, in a pleated cream suit and (most likely) begging for one of her main rival’s epic smackdowns. (Admit it: Girlfriend’s face is practically screaming, “I’m up to something dark-sided!”)

Check out the gallery below — or click here for direct access — then share your thoughts on Empire‘s first Season 2 images. (The shots are decidedly light on the guest stars, so that’s a good sign, right?)

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I can imagine what CNN stands for: Cookie News Network. LOL :-)

    Is it just me or is Cookie having major nip slip in one of those photos?

    I can’t wait for the new season! Everything looks great! I love all of Cookies hairstyles especially her dramatic bang w/ponytail! Can’t wait to see Lucious in the prison yard and to see what the rest of the gang has been getting themselves into!
