A lot of things are about to unfold in the upcoming Empire Season 6 Episode 4. The official synopsis for the episode gives a lot to chew for fans especially for those who are dying to see Lucious and Cookie together again.
Following the intense drama in the previous episode, the Lyons probably thought it is time to have a little family reunion. The Lyons will have a momentary happy time as they are brought together by a joyous family event. But, as expected, it will be short-lived as they continue to fail to agree on anything.
In the teaser for Empire Season 6 Episode 4, Lucious (Terrence Howard), Cookie (Taraji P. Henson), and the rest of the family are at the dinner table but, like any other gathering, it will not end well for them. An intense exchange between Lucious and the other Lyons is seen as he lashes them out about something.
"You are not trying to full the job and do this without me," Lucious asks his family while Cookie and Andre look tensed as they the family patriarch speaks. Lucious could be talking about their plans for the Empire and the Empire Movie.
The official synopsis of the episode also hinted about Lucious facing the demons from his past. Who will these demons be? Probably it's Damon (Wood Harris). His battle against Damon probably isn't done as the two will have a face-off at the basement parking lot in the next episode.
Elsewhere, Cookie will be reaching her breaking point in this episode and will consider seeking help. In the sneak peek for Empire Season 6 Episode 4, Cookie is seen crying. It could be about Lucious, the Empire, or something else. Lethal Weapon actress Keesha Sharp will guest star in the episode as Dr. Paula Wick.
In the previous episode, Cookie had suffered a lot. She was held at gunpoint by Damon over a laptop that Lucious stole from him. He shot Cookie before Lucious agreed to give the laptop back in exchange for Cookie's safety.
Finally, Andre (Trai Byers) will give Tiana (Serayah) some useful advice in the upcoming episode. He will tell Hakeem's (Bryshere Y. Gray) wife that she needs to find a way to iron out the controversy she created for their company.
Empire Season 6 is the final installment of the Fox drama series. Episode 4, titled "Tell the Truth," is scheduled to air on October 15 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
