Empire season 4 episode 6 preview: Hakeem and Anika’s custody battle

Empire season 4 episode 6While we’ve seen many a battle within the Lyon family over the years, the one on Empire season 4 episode 6 has coming up is a bit different. Why? This time around, it’s a legal battle in a courtroom. This isn’t one that these characters can talk or buy their way out of — there are some other problems that they’re going to need to contend with, and this time around it involves trying to convince other people that Hakeem is a fit father. While he does have a lot going for him, Hakeem is a man with many skeletons in his closet. As a result of that, he’s going to have a rather hard time contending with some of what could be thrown at him in this episode.

Below, CarterMatt has the Empire season 4 episode 6 synopsis for you and it offers a few more details on what’s coming up, while also setting the stage for a few other storylines, as well:

“The Lyon family stands together as Anika and Hakeem begin a custody battle for Bella. Although they’re confident in Hakeem’s ability as a father, no one is prepared for the revelations her team brings to the trial. Meanwhile, Claudia grows more possessive over Lucious, who has unlocked a new way to understand music through his paintings. Also, Jamal introduces Warren to Lucious, Andre begins seeing a new therapist, and one of Becky’s old flames returns in the all-new “Fortune Be Not Crost” episode of EMPIRE airing Wednesday, Nov. 15 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.”

Obviously, there are going to be a few different struggles in this episode, and the Lucious – Claudia one remains one of the most interesting to us. After all, Claudia has formed this tight bond with Terrence Howard’s character because she’s been there with him through this whole process. She’s seen a different side of him, and it’s one that few other people have ever had a chance to see. A part of her may want to preserve that and keep it special, but over time he could become more like the Lucious the public knows. That Lucious is not exactly the one that most people are going to want to spend their time with.
