Yeah, Lucious, we bet you need a hug.
Empire‘s new trailer, released Wednesday, finds the recording mogul raging about revenge and staring down the business end of a gun wielded by his youngest son — is it any wonder he winds up in the comforting arms of his outspoken ex-wife?
The promo also shows us Lucious and Cookie wielding weapons of their own (a big gun and what looks like a broomstick, respectively), a car exploding, Hakeem and Laura getting cozy and a really ominous shot of Andre having a breakdown next to his baby’s crib.
Empire returns Wednesday, March 30, at 9/8c. Until then, press PLAY on the video above, then hit the comments with your thoughts on the episodes ahead.
