Check Out Clips From The Midseason Finale Of ‘Empire’

‘Empire’ is going to take a planned midseason break until March, but not til after the Midseason finale Wednesday, and the show promises to have some of the craziest moments fans have ever seen.

Cookie wants to host a free concert in the park so that Angelo (Taye Diggs) can continue to win people over and to eventually become mayor. Meanwhile, the FBI continues to investigate Lucious and freeze their assets.


In this first clip, Diana Dubois (Phylicia Rashad) tells Lucious (Terrence Howard) that she’s backing out of their original deal. That’s one thing I wouldn’t recommend with a member of the Lyon family. The Cookie effect can be rough, though.


Meanwhile, Jamal (Jussie Smollett) is going to perform at that outdoor concert that Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) is putting on for Angelo. Jamal tells Cookie that he is off the drugs, so Cookie wants him to hand them over. Now, she means all of them, and she demands the ones he even thought he could hide from her.


Will Jamal be able to perform sober? How will Lucious get his deal? Find out on the midseason fall finale of Empire Season 3 Episode 9 called “A Furnace For Your Foe”, which airs at a special time, Wednesday, December 14, 2016, at 8 PM on FOX.
