As Cookie and Lucious deal with each other’s betrayals, they wonder if this could be the end for their relationship. Meanwhile, Andre’s life hangs in the balance and the future of Empire is in jeopardy as the Feds close in and the mystery of who is in the coffin is finally revealed.
With the personal crisis resolved, Lucious turns his attention to navigating a certain professional pickle involving DA Megan Conway, who now has him by his proverbial short and curlies. He decides to make a run for it, and invites Cookie to join him in his getaway ‘copter. She refuses said invitation, citing his pervasive and uncontrollable toxicity as the reason.
