There are only Four more episodes of Season 2 of ‘Empire’, and you know things are going to get hot soon.
This first clip is a press conference that Empire records are hosting for the American Sound Awards. The clip begins when Lucious (Terrence Howard) starts talking to a blogger who he thinks could help his career, but Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) wants to make sure he stays in check with his intentions. The reason Empire is hosting the conference is that Jamal (Jussie Smollett) and Lucious are both up for an award, so they need to answer questions from the media. Of course, the media tries to stir up some controversy and when the Lyon family is involved, the controversy will find it’s way.
Anika (Grace Gealey) is pregnant with Hakeem’s (Bryshere Y. Gray) baby, and Hakeem wants to show Anika that he’s ready to be a father. Unfortunately, he’s still with his fiance and Lucious threatened Anika’s life. I don’t blame her for not wanting to get into the family, even if she’s trying to get in there one way or the other.
In this final clip, Jamal wants to take a step back from all the bull sh*t that happens in the music business. The trouble with only performing in stadiums is that music artists don’t get the same kind of creative vibes as smaller gigs. Jamal goes to a coffee shop to see a local band Fantastic Negrito (seriously great name), and when he’s asked to get on stage to perform their song “Stepping Up”, he’s not going to say no.
Empire Season 2 Episode 15 Called “More Than Kin” airs tonight, April 27, 2016, at 9:00 PM ET on FOX.
