“Empire” season 2 episode six has finally welcomed the return of Hakeem. He freed himself from the kidnappers and returned home where his brothers Jamal (Jussie Smollett) and Andre (Trai Byers) made sure that their younger sibling gets back on his legs.
Hakeem is a changed man, though he is full of anger. So he gave a high-energy performance with their Lyon Dynasty girl group. His new love interest, Laura (Jamila Velazquez) led the group. Hakeem also had an encounter with his ex-flame Anika, which rekindled their love. They shared more than just a kiss. How far this relationship goes will be seen quite soon.
Lucious is not happy with the three brothers uniting. He roped in rapping protégé Freda. Cookie also has a new love interest, Laz. Becky is not lucky as Cookie gets closer to Laz. But the suspense is going to come as Cookie may even be in danger.
Ilene Chaiken said in an interview, “We clearly need to be concerned. Cookie’s falling for a guy and she doesn’t know who he is, and he’s not the great guy he appears to be — or at least he has some affiliations that are unsavory.” The guy opened his shirt in the middle of a hookup and his back revealed the same tattoo seen on the back of the kidnappers of Hakeem.
“Empire” season 2 is turning into a dangerous drama. Laz may not actually have real feelings towards Cookie. He may also be behind the kidnapping.
Bryshere Gray, Empire star, said about Hakeem, “He has this vibe, this type of energy from Laz that he doesn’t like, so he’s got a little side-eye to him.” So is Cookie sleeping with the wrong person? Find out in the coming episodes of “Empire” season 2.
