‘Empire’ Episode Guide (Dec. 6): Diana Dubois’ Plan Comes to Fruition

“Cupid Painted Blind” (12/06/17) – Cookie and Lucious take matters into their own hands as they watch Diana DuBois’ master scheme unfold. Meanwhile, Andre begins to spiral out of control, wondering what she could have in store for him.

Also, Jamal’s sobriety is put to the test and Shine gives Hakeem advice on how to maintain a balance between his work and personal life in an all-new episode of “Empire” airing Wednesday, Dec. 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Guest starring in this episode are Taye Diggs as Angelo Dubois, Phylicia Rashad as Diana DuBois, Teyonah Parris as Pamela Rose, James Colby as Burleson, Ptosha Storey as Chyna, Da’Vine Joy Randolph as Poundcake, Antoine McKay as Bunkie, Lamar Curtis as Officer McAdams, Andrew Key as Sven, and Nicole Armold as Zoe.

Golden Globe-nominated “Empire” continues to be one of the most popular and acclaimed shows on television. A powerful drama about a family dynasty set within the glamorous and sometimes dangerous world of hip-hop music, the show revolves around the Lyons and their media company, Empire Entertainment.

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.

“Empire” stars Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon, Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon, Jussie Smollett as Jamal Lyon, Bryshere ‘Yazz’ Gray as Hakeem Lyon, Trai Byers as Andre Lyon, Grace Byers as Anika, Gabourey Sidibe as Becky, Ta’Rhonda Jones as Porsha, Serayah McNeill as Tiana, Xzibit as Shine Johnson, Andre Royo as Thurston “Thirsy” Rawlings, Rumer Willis as Tory Ash and Terrell Carter as Warren Hall.
