Empire season 2’s upcoming episode
will find Lucious Lyon a free man,
after the case against him is
dismissed. Episode 5 is titled Be True,
where singer Ne-Yo guest stars to
work with Jamal and Andre decides to get baptised to rid his soul of past
The official synopsis reads as follows:
Over at Lyon Dynasty, Cookie and
Anika work together with Laz (guest
star Adam Rodriguez) to throw “Cookie Lyon’s Block Party,” a big
event to launch their company,
showcase their artists and premiere a
signature Dynasty anthem written by
Hakeem. Meanwhile, Jamal gets busy
working on his music with Ne-Yo (guest star Ne-Yo). Also, Hakeem
begins a tender romance with the
lead singer of his girl group, and
Andre takes steps to rid his soul of
past sins in the all-new “Be True”
episode of Empire. A new promo shows Lucious back as
the head of Empire as a voice-over
declares, “To the top of the Billboard
charts, to the balcony of the New York
Stock exchange, to a prison cell in
Brooklyn, Lucious Lyon has emerged a free man” and we see people
Co-creator/executive producer Danny
Strong says in the video, “Lucious is
back as head of Empire, and he wants
his rival label to go back. He wants his family back together, much more so
that he can control them as oppose to
parental love, which doesn’t seem to
come so easily for Lucious.”
“His goal would be to get rid of Lyon
Dynasty,” Danny Strong teased. The promo shows Andre telling Jamal and
Hakeem, “I am getting baptised this
Sunday, and I’d appreciate it if you’d
both come.” Danny Strong stated that his favourite
scene in the episode is the baptism.
“When we flash back to, [we see]
Lucious was traumatised as a child by
his mother, and because of that he is
not able to sit through the baptism anymore.”
Empire season 2 episode 5 airs
Wednesday, 21 October at 9pm EST
on Fox Network.
