Good job.
(PHONE RINGING) (PANTING) Dad, what's up? Jamal's meeting you in the lobby.
I need you guys on a plane and back in New York at home immediately.
(SIGHS) Okay.
Lucious probably hid his dirty-ass cash in these walls.
It's supposed to be my community center.
What is with the mood? I thought you and Luce would be riding high off opening night.
I don't owe you or nobody else any explanations, okay? I'm grown.
Maybe not, but that little unwashed face and last night's clothes owes to something.
So what, you've been out all night, huh? - Did a little horseback? - Ooh, you no, but I should hit you (PHONE RINGING) (SIGHS) I ain't got time What's that about? (PHONE RINGING) (SIGHS) It's Lucious.
What you want me to do? He ain't got nothing to say I want to hear.
Hey, Luce.
Listen, right now is not the it's not a good time.
(COOKIE SIGHS) Uh Wait, Cook.
It's Andre.
Stage IV lymphoma never sounds good, but, um, but thanks to Teri, I'm on an aggressive cycle of doxorubicin.
Anthracycline antibiotics can have aggressive side effects, but so far, my symptoms are all within the range - of what Dr.
Swain expected.
- JAMAL: Dre, I'm sorry, uh, you know, how are you feeling? COOKIE: Well, he gonna feel a whole lot better now that we in the mix, 'cause, baby, we gonna get the best doctors in the world, and they gonna be at your beck and call.
Ma, I already have a plan.
- It's all - LUCIOUS: No, no, we about to turn this house into the best treatment facility that you've ever seen.
That way, me and your mama, we can be with you - every step of the way.
- COOKIE: Yes, and I'm gonna rearrange my schedule.
And that Giselle, she can finally step up and-and earn that bogus title, or whatever she is that - JAMAL: We ain't going nowhere.
- I'm not asking for that, though.
- You know what I'm saying? - Jamal, you got the tour.
What are you talking about? - Forget a tour, I don't know her.
- JAMAL: Yeah.
Ain't no thinking - about a damn tour right now, man.
- Stop! (EXHALES) See, this is exactly why I didn't want to tell anybody I was sick.
Empire's entire existence depends on this tour, and the tour depends on its headli Okay, baby.
Baby, baby, please, don't-don't make yourself upset.
We can talk about this calmly, man.
- COOKIE: Please.
- I need a break.
- Andre, please, come on - I need a break, Ma.
LUCIOUS: Andre.
- Andre.
- Dre? No, hold on.
Dre.
Now, do you mind telling me where in the hell you were last night? I searched everywhere for you.
JAMAL: Dre? Dre.
- Man, I'm so sorry.
- It's okay.
You know, what-what happened in there with Lucious and Cookie, I I expected that.
It's gonna be a lot for them to handle, which is why I need you two to step up and pick up the slack.
Empire's your birthright.
It's your moment.
Show me you're ready to lead this tour.
Come here.
Come on, come on.
Come here, Hakeem.
Now, I love y'all.
You hear me? Always.
I need you to believe that I'm gonna be fine so I can believe it, too.
Okay? Okay? (SIGHS) Okay.
Look, Cookie, you got to just-just stop - and listen to me, please.
- I can't.
Dr.
Swain's team will be here any moment to set up Andre's chemo.
- Okay? - Look, no, no.
I need you to listen to me.
Nothing happened between me and Treasure.
- I swear.
- So, then, she must have tripped and fallen on top of you.
- Wow, she really is talented.
- No, no.
No, no, you She was confused about her gratitude, and she tried something and made a mistake, but I stopped her.
I swear.
That sounds real nice.
Just like it sounded nice when you said you were sleeping with Giuliana for me.
Honey Your words aren't enough anymore, Lucious.
No, look, I-I need you to believe me right now.
I really do.
That sounds like a "you" problem, Lucious.
The only thing I have energy for is to care for our firstborn.
Oh.
That's right.
He's not your firstborn.
NURSE: Blistering around the IV site is common.
Is it bothering you? No more than the vomiting.
We've been icing the area every night to control the swelling.
Um, Doc, I see you have Andre on a CHOP regimen.
Why not a CVP? SWAIN: CVP is an option for follicular lymphoma, but given Andre's advanced diagnosis, the addition of doxorubicin is essential.
Mm-hmm.
Well, um, what about immunotherapy? Andre's antibody production has been strong so far.
After this chemo round, we'll assess his blood work to see if he qualifies for phase 2 of the trial, and if he does, we'll incorporate rituximab.
Rituxi Oh What if he doesn't qualify? We'll explore every option.
TERI: Here we go.
(ANDRE BREATHES DEEPLY) Why don't you go on over to Empire, Pop? Manage the initial tour reception.
Really.
You all right? Oh, yeah, Pop.
I'm good.
Yeah.
Not a bad idea.
- Hey, Cook, you coming? - No.
I'm right here where I need to be.
Juanita, um, can you tell them to bring the car around, please? Right away, sir.
(COUGHING) It's okay.
- Where the hell is my jacket? - What? - Look, I can't hear you.
- How can you hear anything with little man coughing like that? I haven't slept in days.
How am I supposed to bring it at this open mic tonight? Well, I'm sorry that our son is such an inconvenience for you.
So do something about it.
What do you want me to do, Lucious? We-we can't afford a doctor.
I can't take him anywhere.
Look, you know what I need? I need your help.
Not your lip.
- (ANDRE COUGHING) - Every second I'm not working on my music, I'm out on these streets hustling, to keep a roof over your's heads.
That's me helping.
(DOOR SLAMS) I got a body like a weapon It goes b-b-bang bang, bang And every time that we're together I drive you insane, insane - Do you hear that? - Got me in ya hand, what'cha gonna do wit'it Now I need a man that can aim, let's get it Get a little trigga happy, daddy Get a little trigga happy, daddy But I don't got time for love Don't got time for love Keep it movin', keep it movin' Keep it movin', keep it movin' But I don't got time for love Don't got time for love Keep it movin', keep it movin' - Dumbass.
- Keep it movin', keep it movin' The hell's wrong with you? BLAKE: I had a rough night, man.
I'll be good, I'll be good by showtime.
Go go clean yourself up or something, go ahead.
Go.
Go.
- Keep it movin' - PORSHA: Jamal.
Jamal.
Did you see the reviews for the VIP meet and greet? Yeah, I'll, I'll get to it.
Also, the dancers are complaining about their motels.
Porsha, do you really think this is something we need to be discussing right now? Okay.
Porsha.
Tell the hotels that we'll-we'll stay at their locations on the rest of the trip if they give us a discount.
Hey.
You killing it.
A'ight? We got this.
TIANA: Thanks, guys.
You can take five.
Tia, it just needs to be louder in the house.
That's it.
- April? - APRIL: What up, Tee? Hey, so, the lights? - Out of control.
I can't see anything.
- Yo, Tia.
Thought you might need the boost.
Look.
I don't do dairy when I'm performing, and I don't repeat mistakes.
Especially mistakes that name their junk.
So, about this There you are.
I've been calling and texting to get some more of that mutual respect.
Andre's sick.
He has stage IV lymphoma.
What? God, I'm-I'm so sorry, Jamal.
Are you are you okay? Do you need me to take you No, no, no, no.
I have to stay with the tour.
- It's all hands on deck right now.
- Oh.
Okay.
- (PORSHA CLEARS THROAT) - I'm coming, I'm coming.
Wait, hey, hey.
Hey, just take a deep breath.
I can't right now, all right? Hey, just stay, stay here with me for a minute.
It's like you said, it's it's the Lyon family drama.
Yeah, o-okay, well, we'll just talk later.
No.
Kai, I loved seeing you and being with you last night.
It's day one, though, and I can't even find time for us, and that just that just makes me feel horrible.
- Well - And there's That, on top of everything else, would be unbearable.
So I just think that you were right all along, that being a Lyon comes first.
I got to go.
Lucious? Hey, they told me you here.
I thought you'd be with Andre.
Yeah, I know.
I left Andre in the hands of professionals.
I wish I could say that about Empire.
Excuse me? We're three months away from extinction, and all I see here is handfuls of of mediocrity and complacency.
Generating ecstatic headlines isn't complacency, okay? The New York Post called us a "Freenomenon.
" Almost every single review called Treasure the breakout.
Yeah, then we have a problem, because we're dropping her.
- What? - Let's just say she behaved inappropriately after the after-party, and she's now a liability to this company.
Whatever it is she did, it never made it to the gossip blogs.
Lucious, she's not a liability.
She's an asset.
Okay.
Then she shouldn't have a problem finding another label.
- (GROANS) - I want to get the entire team together I mean from promo to strategy and I want to sit down and talk about the big picture here.
(WHISPERS): Okay.
We're done here.
(QUIETLY): Trust.
(TERI GROANS) You always have to be on top of me.
- Can you blame me? - (CHUCKLES) Uh, Teri? This is Dr.
Seccia.
I had him flown in.
I hear there's some discrepancies - over Andre's chemo regimen - No, there's no discrepancies.
Andre's actually already gotten a second, a third and a fourth opinion.
None of which his mother was present for.
I'm here now.
So Well, I've, uh, I've been here, and it was, and it still is, his best option.
Any deviation could jeopardize his space in Dr.
Swain's trial.
Shh, shh, shh.
I appreciate your concern, sweetheart, but let's hear the doctor out.
He's a specialist.
At-at what? I-I'm just a nurse? Now, I-I-I'm sorry, because I'm the nurse that Andre trusted his diagnosis with.
Okay.
But I'm gonna need you to watch your tone, okay? - That's my son.
- And that's my man, - (COOKIE LAUGHS) - whose side I've been at for the past month, who I fed through a straw, - who came to me - Oh, that's cute, girl.
You fed him through a straw.
Thank you.
Thank you so much.
- That doesn't negate everything I've done, - Ma - okay? - Ma.
Ma.
We already have a treatment plan.
- But, baby, I - Mm-mm.
We're good.
(ANDRE SIGHS) (QUIETLY): I'm sorry.
That's quite all right.
I'm fine.
Push the sound check 15 minutes.
If he can't make it, - then he gets not one today.
- Hey, yo, Blake's saying Treasure got fired.
Is that real? What'd she do, bro? Giselle just said "inappropriate behavior.
" I guess we can't have fun.
Fun? Yo, Keem, I swear, man, sometimes I don't even understand you.
Our brother is literally hooked up to a chemo drip, and you're - talking about having fun.
- I'm just doing what he asked me to do.
That's keeping this tour going.
- What, so you reached out to him? - Nah.
We ain't close like you two.
You know, when Andre was in prison, he would hit me up every single week, literally just to check up on you.
He loves you.
Try showing him some love, too.
Wait.
What? More excuses? What? I got a better idea.
So the good reviews hurt us? Is that even possible? Demand for free perks and free tickets is really high emphasis on "free," okay? Nobody is buying the paid subscription to XStream, and no one is buying music, either.
Okay, then we need to do more promotion about these paid options at the tour sites.
No.
I mean, what about auto-enrollment incentives? BECKY: No, no, no, look, the last thing anybody wants when they're having a fun night out is to be reminded of future bills.
- They're gonna hate us.
- GISELLE: Yeah, we're gonna run through that hundred million faster than Patel's three months.
Which we cannot afford to do, so What we can do is we can start to canvas internationally, because the data mining thing wasn't that big of a scandal overseas.
That's what Andre suggested, and I think we should do it.
(DISTORTED, WHISPERING VOICES) Yeah, yeah, keep it going, Philly! We got a lot going on tonight.
Let me hear you make some noise! (CHEERING, WHOOPING) Man, there's some label reps here.
Bunkie heard one guy say he came from New York City.
- You gotta crush it, Lu.
- Yo, Cookie here yet? Nah.
She's at home with little man.
Vernon, I swear that kid's got some damn exorcist cough, man.
And now coming to the stage, Philly's own y'all can say y'all knew him when Lucious Lyon! (CHEERING) EMCEE: I like it, I like it, I like it! - (ANDRE'S DISTORTED COUGHING) - COOKIE: I'm sorry that our son is such an inconvenience for you.
Lucious they waitin'.
Lucious, are you going to participate in this meeting you demanded? I need to be someplace.
COOKIE: I understand how valuable your time is, Dr.
Seccia.
But look, everybody's emotions were just running high.
I-I know I can still make this worth your while.
Please? - (DOOR OPENS) - Thank you.
Well, look at what the UPS delivered me.
My own custom punchin' bag.
Look, Cookie, if if that's what you need, I completely understand.
I didn't come here to ask you for anything.
Listen, if I was in your position, I would've dropped me, too.
Except for I would have done it publicly, with a blowtorch.
Trying to give me some ideas? Look Cookie, I wanted to come by today and let you know that it was completely my fault.
My deadbeat manager convinced me that my music wasn't enough to get the attention of the men that mattered.
He said that I had to convince them I was worth their time before they could take a listen.
Lucious was different.
He just wanted to help me.
You both did, and I ruined that.
And I am so sorry.
I'm sorry, Cookie.
I'll leave.
Hold on.
What you did was stupid and painful.
But most of all, it was dangerous, girl.
You know how many people would be happy to take advantage of a sweet little thing like you? And not to mention what I could have done to your little ass.
I don't want you to leave Empire.
W-Wait, you're you're not gonna drop me? You got some growing to do.
And clearly, you've been through some things, so we gonna get you somebody to talk to.
And then you're gonna get your little ass back in the studio and you gonna make me some hits.
Yes, ma'am.
(CHUCKLES) Thank you.
- Thank you so much.
I - Mm-hmm.
I promise, Cookie, whatever it takes to get your trust back, I got you.
Thank you.
Thank you.
- Thank you.
- All right, all right.
- Go on over there.
- Okay.
Thank you.
(SIGHS) (SIGHS) What is going on in here? What is she doing? - My job.
- I wouldn't have to if you didn't keep burning grease into my pans.
Mm Cookie, what's wrong? Is this about Andre? Is he getting worse? (SIGHS) Worse than stage IV cancer? (LAUGHING): Are you serious? No, this is not about Andre.
Once again, this is about Lucious.
It's about this morning? Cookie, what happened? Honey, are you in trouble? I thought Lucious did something so unforgivable, that I I tried to do the same.
So what you do? Go get yourself another man, baby? (CHUCKLES) Mm, Cook.
I don't know what I was thinking.
(CHUCKLING): And the joke's on me because, for the first time, Lucious is innocent.
(SIGHS) I-I just wanted I was so quick to believe the worst, you know, Carol? I guess I wanted it to be true.
I need to go tell him - and-and make him understand.
- Whoa, whoa, wait.
Wait a second.
Are you trying to stay in this marriage? Of course.
All right, honey, well, you have to listen to me because someone like Lucious, he don't understand something like this.
- I got to tell him.
- No.
No, no, no.
Cook, you cannot tell him nothing.
(SIGHS) (COUGHING) (COUGHING) What happened to your open mic night? I ditched it.
How's Dre doing? (ANDRE COUGHING) He's not getting better.
That's 'cause he's got the croup.
I called every clinic in town.
They said we got to get him outside.
What? Pop? You came back.
Damn right I came back.
It's not easy seeing my boys sick, especially you.
Yeah, I wouldn't want to see me like this either, Pop.
Did I ever tell you about the first time that you got really, really sick? Me and your mama, we had just started getting over, um, the loss of our first child, and you had this cough, but we didn't know what it was, so we're calling over to all these emergency rooms, and this one nurse, she got on, she got on the phone and she said, "What you need to do here, "you need to wrap the boy up, take him outside so that you could breathe in the cold air.
" And, man, it was cold, it was cold.
So what's the point of this? For all of us to get sick? Did you have a different suggestion that I didn't hear? What, is cough syrup not good enough for you? - (COUGHS) - We're out there for, like, an hour.
Your mama's freezing.
She's crying.
Lucious, please.
LUCIOUS: And I'm praying, and looking down at you.
It's gonna be okay, buddy.
I got you, okay? You looked up at me, and it was almost like you knew that I needed you to get better.
I still need you to get better.
(EXHALES LOUDLY) Hear me? I don't want to be a burden, Pop.
How could you ever be a burden to me? You're my son.
I would kill to defend you.
And it's not gonna be easy seeing you sick, but I don't care how bad it gets.
I will be your strength.
There is nothing that you can say to me that I will not understand.
There's no darkness I haven't felt.
There's no sacrilege I can't handle.
You understand me? Say it.
I understand you, Pop.
And you'll beat this.
Yes, sir.
Yes, sir.
(BREATH QUIVERING) (SIGHS) There you go.
Oh, Jamal, we got a couple back-up generators on standby, but they won't be here for a couple hours.
All right, so they get here, and we'll be on our way to the next city? That don't make no sense.
Mm.
Turning over a new leaf, huh? You know, I'm just, uh, picking up some new flavors in case somebody wants another bite.
(LAUGHS) Okay.
- Clever.
- You should try it.
Hey, yo, yo, Carli, um, you know what a rider is? - Yeah.
- It means, like, the stuff that I requested, like this right here, this-this ham it's what I wanted, so if you want some, just put it on your own rider.
So bill me, Blakey.
Bill you? 20%.
How about that? - Here we go.
- MAYA: Can you believe this? I mean, he's not even gonna try to be chill about Tiana in front of me? - Yeah, yeah.
Jamal? - Give me one second, okay? - Can I have Treasure's slot? - What? Uh Hey, Jamal, listen, they can have some gas generators here.
Hey, where were you the other night with the? But how much do you care about the fire code? - Jamal? - Jamal? - Do you want to call her your bitch? - Oh! (INDISTINCT CHATTER) Yo.
Yo, Blakey, why are you hollering at me? - I'm not thirsty! I'm good.
- (INDISTINCT CHATTER) What are you gonna do about it? - Get out of my way! - What are you gonna do about it? - (MIC SQUEALING) - Aah! What the hell?! Everybody shut the hell up! Second damn night.
This is what we about? Y'all need to take your fighting and your stupidity and put it aside.
'Cause the Trust Tour is about more than that.
It has to be.
Anyone of y'all that ain't down with that, please take your asses and roll on! Our fans, your fans they got stuff going on in their lives that we ain't never gonna know about.
But they got their asses up out of bed this morning, and they're coming to see us tonight, so every time that you go out on that stage every single time you be their hopes, you be their dreams, you be their escape.
Now can you handle that? - (OVERLAPPING MURMURS) - I said, can you handle that? - ALL: Yes! - (HAKEEM CLAPS) Come on, team.
Every single crew member, come on, bring it in.
All hands on deck, on three.
For Andre.
One, - two, three.
- ALL: Trust! (APPLAUSE, CHEERING, WHOOPING) (SIGHS) (ELEVATOR BELL DINGS) Cookie, I was surprised you wanted to see me.
You know, you went dark after you left.
Um, did anyone see you come in here? Just security, but legal has me here to sign paperwork for the community center, so, we're covered.
It has to stay that way, okay? Look, Damon, what happened, you can't tell anybody.
Give me a reason To be A woman (PANTING) I just want to be a woman It's all I want to be Is all woman - Yeah.
(LAUGHS) - Okay.
For this is the beginning Of forever and ever Wait.
Wait.
- You want to take it slow? - No, no, no.
This ain't right.
- What? - This is not right.
- I can't do this.
- Hey.
- Oh, come on.
- It's time to move over You're sure? - Hey.
- This isn't right.
This isn't right.
I'm sorry.
You think that little of me? Of course what happened was just for us.
Okay, look.
(CHUCKLES) There is no "us," okay? So stop saying that.
You wanted me, Cookie.
Come on, man.
Ain't no shame in that.
Look, look, look, none of that matters now.
My son Andre has stage IV lymphoma.
I'm sorry.
I'm sorry to hear that.
- I know that pain.
- (SIGHS) I feel like it's my fault, you know? I feel like I was disloyal to my family and and now my son has to pay.
Let me stop you right there.
You're not that important.
Excuse me? When my daughter was diagnosed with cancer, I thought the same thing.
(SIGHS HEAVILY) I've done some bad things, Cookie.
My reckoning is inevitable.
But the idea that my daughter would have to pay the price man, that was unbearable.
(EXHALES) What do you do to stop feeling like this? Watching her fight, it made me realize exactly how small I was.
And I didn't have the power to control her illness.
And neither do you.
You hear me when I tell you this, okay? You are not important enough to cause any of this.
What do I do? You be there for your son.
Whatever he needs.
(EXHALING): Okay.
Thank you.
I'm here for you if ever you need to talk.
Okay.
And you don't have to worry about anything else from me.
(SIGHS) Now I need a man that can aim, let's get it Get a little trigga happy, daddy Get a little trigga happy, daddy We're-we're fine, y'all.
It's cool.
Thank you.
Bless, oh Bless, bless, oh Y'all, I just need to get centered.
KAI: I think you've made enough demands.
Look, you can't make any more unilateral decisions about our relationship.
- Relationship? - Yes.
- We're back together.
- Jamal, you're on in two.
Just, uh, wait, uh Yeah.
Please? Look, I don't know where my life is gonna be in the next couple months, and I don't even have control over that.
Which is exactly why you need someone who's rational to keep you from making crazy, rash decisions.
They're not im Look, I-I love you and I appreciate what you're doing, but it's just How would this even work? Look, we're gonna figure this whole thing out together, Jamal.
All right? And I-it's gonna be challenging and-and dramatic and, yeah, we're probably gonna have a bunch of fights.
Then why would we do it? Because, as soon as I saw you again, I knew.
I'd rather have your mess than someone else's easy.
And every time that we're together - I make you say my name - I got to I got to You're my home, Jamal.
Now, put this back on.
ANNOUNCER: Philadelphia, are you ready for Hakeem and Jamal Lyon? (AUDIENCE CHEERING, APPLAUDING) (CHEERING, WHISTLING) - WOMAN: We love you! - (CHEERING) JAMAL: We love you so much.
Um, you know, there's not just two Lyon brothers.
We have a big brother, and his name is Andre Lyon.
There would be no Trust Tour and there would be no Empire without our brother.
So, Philadelphia, this is our home.
Please.

(AUDIENCE CHEERING WILDLY) (PHONE RINGING IN DISTANCE) Miss Cookie? Dr.
Seccia's on the line.
Would you like for me to conference him in when Dr.
Swain arrives with the test results? Uh, that-that won't be necessary, Juanita.
Andre has everything and everybody he needs.
(ANDRE COUGHING) - (SIGHS) - (COUGHING) (TRAIN WHISTLE BLOWS IN DISTANCE) I hear a train.
Ah.
Ah.
You hear a train, baby? You hear a train? Oh, my God.
- That's my boy.
- (CHUCKLES) Thank you.
For what? I never thought I'd have all this.
I'll never let this go.
(SIGHS) (DOORBELL RINGS) Hey.
Baby.
I really don't give a damn what that doctor has to say.
I'm not giving up on our boy.
And I'm not gonna give up on us, either.
Do you understand me? I know.
I believe you.
I'm so sorry, Lucious.
(SIGHS) Dr.
Swain.
- (COOKIE SIGHS) - (SIGHS) Dr.
Swain.
Thank you so much for coming.
Mr.
Lyon, Mrs.
Lyon.
Andre.
How are you feeling? Uh, well, my nausea's held steady, but the fatigue is slightly abating.
- The hair and nail loss is consistent - Andre.
Just be honest.
I feel terrible, Doc.
That's great news.
That means the chemo is working.
Oh! (CHUCKLES) - (EXHALES) - (GASPS) - Your full blood count came back robust.
- (WHOOPS) You've qualified to move onto the next phase of the trial.
- (TERI WHOOPS) - (SIGHS) - Do you mean it? - Yeah.
TERI: Yes.
They mean it.
(LAUGHS) Thank you.
Yes.
Mm.
(LAUGHS) (SIGHS) (SIGHS) Lucious? Hmm? Can we talk? Baby, we can do anything you want to do.
Well, you know that night, uh, with you and Treasure.
Well, you know what I was thinking.
Yeah, but that's all in the past now.
And Andre's getting better, and we're good.
I got something I need to tell you.
What, baby? What? I love you.
I love you, too, baby.
I love you so much.
(SIGHS) You were a very difficult one to track down.
I cannot wait to see how you're gonna make it up to me.
KINGSLEY: Why would I help you? Associating with the FBI destroyed my career.
Because I'm the best shot you've got in taking down your father, Lucious Lyon.
That is what you want, isn't it?
