Now that we’re at episode four of the second season of FOX’s Empire, the shenanigans are really beginning to ramp up. Last night’s episode, titled “Poor Yorick,” featured all the twists, tomfoolery and Hakeem struggle we’ve come to expect. 

Here are some of the more important points and moments from the latest Empire, spoilers ahead.

Foes To Lovers?

Roxanne Ford is the prosecutor out to get Lucious and considering she keeps her cleavage out and since Lucious chose to say hello butt naked, it’s a given that they’re going to sleep with each other before the season is up.

G’s To OG’s

Empire Records, as well as Dynasty Records, got raided by the FBI. Lucious actually took this as a positive since it meant more street credibility for the label. We’re betting Irv Gotti would disagree on those alleged benefits.

Struggle Rap Video 101

Hakeem and Jamal shot a video together to show unity as Empire Records and the Lyon family digs in against the feds. The clip looked like a struggle version of Tupac’s “California Love” video. No shots.

Sandra Bland

Cookie got arrested by the feds thanks to her assistant Porscha using her name when she got caught hopping a turnstile. After the door was closed on her in the squad car, she made it clear that there is no way she would commit suicide in custody. That was a clearly nod to the Sandra Bland case. Some people took it as off putting, though. #BlackLivesMatter
