Is Cookie Lyon about to meet her most worthy adversary?
returns for the second half of season three this week, and the drama is about to hit the fan! In a sneak peek from Wednesday’s spring premiere, the Lyons pay a visit to the recovering Jamal
) in rehab, where Cookie (Taraji P. Henson
) gets an unpleasant surprise from her son’s newest friend.
“From what Jamal’s told me, I’m surprised all the Lyon cubs aren’t in rehab,” Tory zings.
“Don’t try me, little girl -- not today, please,” Cookie responds, taken aback by Tory’s fearlessness.
“Cookie, I could try but I think I’d rather wait and try Lucious instead,” Tory fires right back.
It’ll be a family affair for Willis on Empire, which has already been renewed for a fourth season. (By the way, you’ll hear Willis show off her pipes!)
Her mother, Demi Moore
, will join the hip-hop drama in a recurring role, first appearing in the season three finale as a “take-charge nurse with a mysterious past” and will become “treacherously entangled with the Lyon family.”
Empire returns Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
