‘Empire': It’s Game Over For Cookie In The Season 2 Premiere

After what felt like years without our weekly doses of Cookie, “Empire” finally returned to our television screens tonight, and it wasted no time dishing out the drama we know and love. In many ways, the “Empire” season 2 premiere (“The Devils Are Here”) felt wildly familiar, like a Sunday afternoon brunch with your best friends — a slapdash conversation about ex lovers, work, politics and play.
Lee Daniels hasn’t changed his record-breaking formula one bit, and perhaps that’s for the best. “Empire” is still about the same central conflict from season 1: everyone wants control of Empire Entertainment. With Lucious (Terrence Howard) in jail for Bunky’s murder, Jamal (Jussie Smollett) — the chosen son at the end of the two-part season 1 finale — is now in control of Empire, with Cookie (Taraji P. Henson), Andre (Trai Byers), Anika (Grace Gealey) and Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray) plotting a hostile takeover.
But in classic “Empire” fashion, the season 2 premiere burns through that coup before Hakeem ever has a chance to roll over Jamal’s heart with his shiny new self balancing scooter. It doesn’t quite work out the way we thought, but does anything ever on “Empire?” Even from a prison cell, Lucious is always one step ahead. (Even when he has a crazy, cannibalistic drug lord to deal with.)
