Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) are going to war on Empire. But rather than continue trying to merely reclaim power over Lucious' record label, Cookie decides to start her own.
"She'll branch off and do her own thing," Henson tells TVGuide.com, "because Lucious is going to continue to be as difficult as he can be because that's just who he is. And you know what they say, you can't keep a good woman down. So if you can't can't beat 'em and you can't join 'em, go build your own."
