‘Empire’ episode 9 preview: Cookie learns Anika’s secret; Estelle guest stars

Empire -Tonight’s new episode of “Empire” was certainly stuffed to the brim with content and surprises, from Anika and Lucious moving forward a potential wedding date to recording drama to Cookie proving once again that she may be the best TV character of 2015. (Seriously, someone give Taraji P. Henson an Emmy nomination already.)

Next week, all of that seems to be continuing with an installment entitled “Unto the Breach.” Estelle is one of the notable guest stars here, as is Judd Nelson. This basically gives someone else for Lucious to square off against who is not in the middle of some romance funny. Ultimately, expect some chaos at Empire Entertainment before this installment comes to a close.

For some more news on what to expect, just be sure to check out the attached synopsis:

“It’s an all-out war when Cookie uncovers Anika’s big backstabbing secret, and Lucious must come face-to-face with his longtime rival, Billy Beretti (guest star Judd Nelson). As the Lyon family rallies to save Empire Entertainment, all three sons take drastic measures: Jamal gets close with famous artist Delphine (guest star Estelle), Hakeem works hand-in-hand with Cookie and Andre is pushed way beyond his limits.”

Ultimately, there are only a small handful of episodes left this season! With that in mind, you have to brace yourself for plenty of drama and surprises every step of the way. Who knows? Your jaw may end up hitting the floor by the time this season comes to an end.
