Empire fans everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief as the Lyon family is back and better than ever.
The much-aniticipated season 2 premiere of Empire kicked off last night on Fox and lived up to it's name. A gorilla, gold rope chains a la Cookie, a twerking scene and even the Rev. Al Sharpton were all rolled up into one episode and it was more than fans could have ever expected.
From surprising guest appearances (who expected Chris Rock to be the fear-inducing drug lord?) to the #FREELUCIOUS concert that came with a powerful message, there wasn't a dull moment.
So, what was your favorite part of last night's premiere? Was it the surprise appearances, Lucious Lyon flipping the script on Chris Rock's character in that crazy prison scene or even Marisa Tomei's power play that left Cookie speechless? Sound off below!
