About the show:
In Season Four, EMPIRE’s explosive twists and turns resume, as Empire Entertainment embarks on a celebration of its 20th anniversary. LUCIOUS (Terrence Howard) makes his first public appearance after the explosion in Las Vegas, and all members of the Lyon family, as well as Lucious’ nurse, Claudia (guest star Demi Moore), have their own interests in Lucious regaining his physical and mental faculties.
While Lucious struggles with his recovery, COOKIE (Golden Globe Award winner Taraji P. Henson) begins to revisit the most challenging time of her life – her 17 years in prison – in a series of flashbacks. Throughout the season, Lucious, Cookie and their three sons will be forced to take a hard look at their choices, both past and present, in order to secure their legacy and save their Empire.
In true Lyon fashion, Season Four will be filled with exciting new music, splashy events and high-profile guest stars. In addition to Moore’s return, Phylicia Rashad will reprise her role as Diana Dubois, who, along with her son, Angelo (returning guest star Taye Diggs), launches an elaborate plan to take revenge on the Lyons. Forest Whitaker also will be joining the cast for a multi-episode arc as Uncle Eddie, a charismatic music icon and Lyon family friend.
On Empire Season 4 Episode 9 – “Slave to Memory”, Cookie and Lucious devise an elaborate plan to take down Diana Dubois; Andre recovers from his mental breakdown; Shine tries desperately to protect his secret; Eddie Barker is concluding his tenure at Empire; someone’s life hangs in the balance.
