Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) are ready to make the world a better place — one crack house at a time.
After coming to an agreement about how running Empire has caused their family nothing but trouble in the past on last week’s “Empire,” a special sneak peek of Wednesday’s episode — which is exclusive to TheWrap — shows how the power couple is making moves to give back.
Except they can’t agree on exactly how they would like to do that.
Cookie wants to convert an old crack house Lucious bought into a community center — the Cookie Lyon Community Center, to be more specific — but her husband wants to use it as a rehab facility.
Clearly, Lucious is feeling guilty after discovering he fed the crack habit of Kingsley’s mother, without knowing she was his baby mama.
Watch the video above.
Here’s the description for Wednesday’s episode, titled, “Shift And Save Yourself”:
Cookie is offered a career game-changer that would put her future in the family business in jeopardy. Jamal works diligently to try to make Tiana and Treasure’s (guest star Katlynn Simone) track a success, as Lucious, Cookie and Giselle deliberate future plans for Hakeem and the rest of the artists at Empire. Meanwhile, the feds pressure Thirsty, due to his affiliation with Lucious and Damon Cross (guest star Wood Harris), and Andre receives startling news.
“Empire” airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox.
