Empire season 3 has become so intense, that fans are excited for the show’s return this month. After Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) decided to leave Lucious (Terrence Howard), the Lyon family hasn’t exactly been at their best. Andre (Trai Byers) seems to be working his way to getting his dad out of the picture, Jamal (Jussie Smollett) is heading to rehab, and more! What should you expect when the show airs on March 22? Read on to find out!
Empire Season 3: Andre’s Plot To Kill Lucious
In the last episode, Cookie made it clear that she wanted to be far from Lucious. It seems like she’s having a good time with Angelo (Taye Diggs), despite the prying eyes of would-be mother-in-law, Diana (Phylicia Rashad).
Bustle reports that executive producer Sanaa Hamri recently revealed that Andre is taking violent measures to get rid of his father. In the upcoming episode entitled Keys To The Kingdom, it seems like Andre will do whatever it takes to unseat his father from the empire.
Though Andre’s plan seems to be going well, no one in the Lyon family seems to have the slightest clue that the eldest Lyon son is the one behind all the chaos. Fans remember that Andre even teamed up with Shyne Johnson (rapper Xzibit)
“Andre’s character is so dangerous because he has nothing to lose and he’s ruthless and he’s calculating. When he hacked Empire, nobody found out and nobody knew it was him until the very end, so obviously he knows what he’s doing. In his head, he wants to kill his dad. And we’re going to see if Lucious is going to find out or not or be in harm’s way,” Hamri said.
