‘Empire’ season 2, episode 17 preview: Is a Lyon about to die?

Empire -Can you believe that there are only two more episodes still to go on “Empire” season 2? It’s somewhat of a crazy thing to think about, but it is unfortunately the case as “Rise by Sin” in a matter of seven days is going to do its part setting up the events of the finale, which could include everything from a potential wedding to a need for a potential funeral. Hey, this is “Empire,” and it’s a show where they really do need to cover the bases as much as they possibly can.

If you are rather curious as to get some more news on what to expect, check out the synopsis below:

“Hakeem feels the pressure of his underwhelming fiancĂ©, Laura, as he struggles to find a place for her both in his family and his career. Cookie finally reveals to Jamal the truth behind what happened to Freda’s father, prompting Jamal to warn Freda of his family’s ulterior motives. Meanwhile, despite his frustration with the family, Jamal makes a sacrifice for Lucious from which it will be hard to recover.”

Ultimately, if you’re a Jussie Smollett fan and you’re looking for a perfect episode to serve as a reflection for his character, this may be it as it appears he’s going to have his hand in so much of what we see take place.

The promo below’s probably going to make you emotional for a number of different reasons, whether it be Lucious and Cookie or the shooting that looks like it’s happening at the awards show.
