Empire doesn’t return until March 30, but a new promo for the second half of the hip hop drama’s sophomoric season looks like it could topple the first half. In a series of flashes, we see a confident Hakeem, a united Cookie and Lucious, and a determined Jamal. Most important, however, is a distraught Andre sobbing in a nursery.
In the midseason finale, we saw an unknown assailant push Rhonda down a flight of stairs. Andre’s reaction could mean that either his wife or his unborn child did not survive the fall, but neither has been confirmed.
While the Lyon family tries to recover from a series of blows, Empire fans can relax knowing that the show has been picked up for a third season. That’s something, right?
