MUMBAI: Empire, the show that made its viewers go through a maelstrom of emotions is now approaching its end with its Season 2 finale this Sunday, May 22nd at 10 PM on FX. The show stars Academy Award nominated actor Terrence Howard as protagonist Lucious Lyon, as he weathers a life of drug dealer to rise through the ranks to become a hip-hop mogul, only to see his life crash and burn as he is diagnosed with ALS.

Empire Season 2 depicts the rat race to the summit that Lucious’ family comprising of his three sons – Jamal, Andre and Hakeem, his wife Cookie and himself, undergo as heseeks to pass the mantle to one of his sons. The second season starts with the #FreeLuscious concert organized by his ex-wife to end Lucious’s incarceration. The season picks up pace as the entire family is embroiled in controversies and machinations as their quest to be the top dog, heats up. Cookie Lyon, Luscious’s ex-wife, despite their murky past, stands firm with her flawed husband and his tribulations. The depiction of Cookie has won Taraji Penda Henson quite a few laurels with the audience and pundits alike. She also won the Golden Globe award for her performance. This season also showcases the identity of Luscious and lets us know the enigmatic ex-drug dealer a much better.
