Hakeem’s Promo Tour
Hakeem goes on Sway to promote his album and embarrasses Lucious in the process. Hakeem agrees to bring his new girl group “Menage a Trois” to Sway’s station later that week, although they aren’t ready. Cookie whips them into shape by working on their choreography. Hakeem is resistant to Cookie’s interference at first, but becomes more receptive once he sees results.
Lucious, fresh out of prison, meets with his family to discuss the dissolution of their newly formed “Lyons Dynasty,” offering them an opportunity to rejoin Empire. Cookie defiantly refuses on behalf of everyone and declares that she will be alright without him. So Lucious decides to go the “Divide and Conquer” route to success. Andre has a plan to merge Empire with all the urban radio stations, but that’s still not enough for Lucious to allow him back. Anika gets a chance to return if she steals Cookie’s music, but she informs Cookie, as revenge against Lucious is paramount to an Empire return. Together, they devise a plan to spoil Lucious’s return.
