Sin That Amends
Lucious seeks to launch his new Empire Extreme label. Cookie asks Lucious to respect their boundaries, but he continues to make overtures by reminding her of when they first met. Jamal agrees to attend a summit for non-violence with councilman Angelo Dubois, which Cookie objects to, but Lucious takes advantage of the offer. Meanwhile, Hakeem finds he has a new muse in Nessa, but Shine’s volatile nature scares them both. Inside of Empire, Porsha learns of a defection from the team – that comes with an offer to join. At the summit, Cookie gives Angelo a piece of her mind, and Lucious challenges Jamal to perform. Andre continues to privately struggle with Rhonda’s memory, so Cookie gives him a pep talk. At night, after baby Bella has been put to sleep, Anika and Lucious discover something Shine has been keeping from them. In the midst of cleaning house, Andre runs into trouble.
