Over the past year and a half, fans have fallen in love with “Empire” due to Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard). The do-it-all rapper/mogul took over the world and is the ruler of his own empire. Despite the buttons he pushes and the things he does, people love him.
Season two of “Empire” has centered on Lucious delving into his past, explaining why he is the way he is. Until last week’s episode, Lucious had flashbacks of his mother, Leah (Kelly Rowland). This was supposed to explain his childhood, but his mother (Leslie Uggams) is alive.
This season, Lucious learned two of his sons were expecting children. The first, Andre (Trai Byers)’ expectancy, was revealed by Rhonda (Kaitlin Doubleday) in the season one finale. Meanwhile, Anika (Grace Gealey) revealed her pregnancy, but both ladies ended up pushed down the steps, leading Charlamagne and other fans to wonder why Lucious can’t get an “heir.”
