Empire (2015–…): Season 6, Episode 3 - Empire - full transcript

Lucious' plan to escape finally comes to a head; Cookie finds herself in a dangerous situation with Damon; Andre is haunted by a ghost from his past that he can't seem to shake; Tiana receives backlash over a social media post.

LUCIOUS: Previously, on "Empire"...

Teri's lost a lot of blood,
but she's stabilized.

ANDRE: What about the baby?

TERI: He's breathing on his own.

- I answered your prayers.
- No.

I saved your little family,

and I'm just looking
for a little gratitude.



We have been trying to get
Laura to sing all day.

Your internet phenom
is not phenomenal.

Damon's laptop is what you need
to clear your name.


Damn it!

- Damon.
- You owe me, bitch.

LUCIOUS: When you've lived
a life like mine,

everyone wants a shot at you.



But the truth is only one will count.

The million dollar question is
which one?

And when a fan
becomes a hater, look out.

Freda Gatz?

What's good with that new mixtape?

Look, man, I left all

that recording mess alone, all right?

Keeping my spit in the wind,
you heard?

Shouldn't have been trying
to shoot that Lucious Lyon.

Listen, don't bring that man
name up to me again, all right?

When I see that fool the next time,

I ain't gonna miss.

So what? You got balls now?


Ow, Damon, you're cutting off
my circulation...

Shut up!

Why are you doing this? Please.

Why am I doing it? Why am I doing it?

Are you serious?

Oh, you playing dumb on me. Look.

You! Right there, you see you?

You playing dumb.

You like to play dumb.
You need to know.

You need to know why I'm doing it.

You got my information
in your phone, right?


And I'm stupid enough to want
to give your ass the world.

Hell, no, I'm... I'm...


I swear to God, I'm gonna
blow your damn brains out.

- So beautiful.
- Oh.

Oh. Our angel.

We're so, so happy to have you.

Yes, we are.

KINGSLEY: Congratulations, little bro.

A new lion cub in the den.
I am so proud.

What, no hug? I missed you, man.

No, this isn't him.

This is my anti-rejection meds
causing hallucinations.

Don't do that, Andre.

We're brothers,
and we've got a lot to do.

You're gonna need me
if we're gonna keep Empire.

- "Keep"?
- We both know

the old man's coming back.

He killed me when I took the throne.

You want that to happen to you?

You shot yourself, Kingsley.

He drove me to that.

You with
your mental health challenges.

You're vulnerable to his attacks.


We have to secure the legacy
for our little prince in there.

Let's talk.




What's up, sis?
You seem a little off today.

I'm just not having a good morning.

Oh. So what's his name?

Trust, if it was a dude,
I don't kiss and tell.

P.A.: Treasure, you're needed on set.


- Hey, cutie.
- Hey, Tia.

Tiana, girl, uGH.

You are in danger but I think
I can save you.

Your IG story from last night,

the one where
you mention Andre's baby,

it might be going viral,
but not in a good way.

Some of your fans were taking

your "all life is precious"
comment as you being pro-life.

TIANA: To my followers
watching this right now,

please send them and
their baby in your prayers,

because all life is precious.

- Okay, and?
- I think Andre

would want us to get ahead
of the story, you know?

Just release a statement before
the problem gets too big.

I didn't say anything I didn't mean.

I do think all life is precious.

Oh, so you weren't
taken out of context.

Maya, listen, I know that
you're Andre's new assistant

and everything,
but I'm going to need you

to stay in your lane.

Pardon me? My own lane?

Yeah, I mean, aren't you

auditioning to play me
in the new Empire movie?

Well... it's...

Dani, you started off as
dancer and I'm a dancer.

Yeah, good luck with that. it's...

Okay, was that better? Oh, my God.

You are so incredible.
That was so much better.

I'm really proud of
the work we're doing.

- Okay.
- It's better.



- Why is she not better?
- Oh, my God!

- There's a voice there.
- Well, then, Melody,

I would love to hear it.


You're not the problem.
You're not the problem.


Look, I... thank you so much for
coming on a Sunday, but I...

after you've tried and failed
to hear her voice,

now you know why I need
your help so bad.

Becky, I've worked
as a producer before,

but I'm not a miracle worker.

- Are you giving up then?
- Hardly.

Look, Lala has actually improved,

but I need reinforcement
to take things up a notch.

Now, I know a holistic vocal coach

who works with artists to help them

improve on their confidence.

Cool, cool, cool, cool, cool.
Can you get him here now?

- Can you...
- Oh, whoa, slow down.

- He's a bit pricey.
- Okay, well,

what do you mean by pricy?

Ten grand a month?

It's good to have you back.

A lot of people has been
asking about you.

- It's good to be back.
- Andre's baby came last night.

- Congratulations, boss.
- Yeah, I heard.

I hate not being there for one
of my lion cubs to be born,

but I'll see them as soon as I
get the feds off my back.

- So what's on the laptop?
- Everything.

I mean, we knew Damon
was greasy, but I mean,

this cat's been running
money for drug lords

and arm dealers,
crooked politicians, athletes.


It's Damon Cross.



Let me talk to him.

Mr. Cross, how you doing?

Or should I call you snitch?

Oh, I got your snitch,
and I got your bitch

sitting right here next to me.

LUCIOUS: I bet she is.
How y'all doing, anyway?

I forgot to tell you,
after her brand new wears off,

she's a bit of a handful.

So you... you might want
to be careful of that.

Have you reached that point that?

DAMON: Listen, you got two hours

to bring me my damn laptop

or I promise you,
I'm blowing her brains out.


Oh, I see you reached that point.

Well, she's your problem now.
You do what you got to do.

DAMON: Oh, you must think I'm playing.

I'm not. You hear me, Lucious?

I'm not. Two hours.

Oh, well...

she ain't my problem no more.

(LAUGHS) I told you that.

Now, I'm trying to decide

whether to give your laptop
to the Feds

or to one of your clients
or a reporter.

Whatever one is gonna
get your ass shanked

as quick as possible, bitch.



♪ ♪


Damn, damn!

No, no!

Well, I give Damon his laptop,

the feds stay on my ass
the rest of my damn life

and him and Cookie take off

to Turks and Caicos to celebrate.

No, that don't work for me, man.

- She's your boy's mom.
- And garlic make my feet stink.

How do I know she ain't trying
to set me up?

With all due respect, sir,
what if you're wrong?


Wanna know what was wrong?

When I needed her the most,
she left me standing

in the middle of an airport hangar.

That was wrong.

So I don't give a damn
what happens to Cookie.

In fact, I'm done talking about her.

I got a contact in the press.

Once Damon's
money laundering goes public,

I'll be able to reach out to the DOJ,

get my charges dropped.


She can take care of her damn self.

The way she always does.
This is all yours.

All right. Have a good day.

Have a good day.

WOMAN: ♪ Oh, yeah ♪

That's your man?

That's who you chose over me? Me!

Let me think.
All my clients are compromised.

If they find out the truth, I'm dead.

- Everything is gone!
- Damon, please.

DAMON: Shut up!

Lucious don't give a damn about you.

You're right. You're right, Damon.

Lucious treats me like crap.

That's why I left his ass
six months ago.

You got to believe me.

Look, this beef, this is
between you and Lucious...

What? No, this is all about you!

You left him, then you came
to me, spying on me for him.

- What's that?
- I didn't give him

anything, Damon.

You think I'm stupid!
Do you think I'm stupid, huh?

Uh, Damon, you know we had something.

I felt it, and you know you did, too.

Hey, hey, hey, don't.

Don't you dare do that.
That's beneath you.

Okay, look, you said that last night,

you snitched to Conway
to free me from Lucious.

No man, not even my daddy,

has ever stepped out
on a limb like that for me.

I swear to you, I didn't
give Lucious anything.

Bitch, I got you on videotape...

I know, and then I thought about it!

I thought about it!

I didn't snitch to Lucious. I promise.

Really, why not?

Because you care so much about me?

- Yes, yes.
- Really?

So I'm supposed to believe,
suddenly, you care about me?

Yes, come on, Damon.

You felt it. We had something.

I suggest you start telling
the truth, you understand?


I know it was frightening,
but it's not unusual

to hallucinate given the host
of medications you're on

and your recent stressors.

How do we make it stop?

I'll have your primary physician

recalibrate your medications.

But it may take a few days to work.

In the meantime,
since you already know

what you're seeing isn't real...

- Ignore it.
- Exactly.

Why Kingsley?

Why would my hallucinations
manifest in that way?

Based on your file,
there's a myriad of reasons.

Survivor's guilt,
your brother's death.


It seems to me his death
literally saved your life.

Or perhaps he represents
something your subconscious

believes you're suppressing.

Something your conscious mind
won't let you admit.

What did he say?


♪ ♪


So what does that mean to you?

It means I can control it.


♪ Yeah, I know that
my body is something ♪

♪ I own, but I like feeling good ♪


I'm busy. Très busy.


It's Donna. Hey, sis.

Good to see you. Cute dress.

- Thank you...
- What up, cuz?

Yo, nice studio.

What are you doing here,
and why did you bring him?

Well, you invited us to tour
your new digs any time..

We wanted to see what all
the hype was about.

Okay, that was months ago, though.

Now is not a good time.

Oh, yo, point a brother
to the dope swag.

Hey, y'all got them new Kanye joints?

- I wear a 12.
- No, we are not

Kanye West swag level just yet.

And again, this is
a really bad day for me.

I have a lot of fires to put out, so.

Don't be ashamed of the hustle, Becky.

Most new businesses fail.

I am not a failure, and you...

you will not do this to me today.

Not today. So glad you came, sister.

Love you. Love having you.

I'm really glad to have you, too.

Why don't I give the two of you
a tour of my offices?

- Yeah?
- Yeah.

Okay, have you ever
seen a studio before?


DAMON: Dimitri, find Lucious

and get me my damn laptop
or that's your ass.

Hey, you not getting out of that,

so you might as well give up.

And you know what?
You are useless to me

unless you start telling me the truth.

The truth!

Damon, look...

- Okay, okay, I love Lucious.
- Despite everything.

That was yesterday, before
he left me here to die.

So you were spying for him?

No, see...

I didn't know if I wanted him back.

So that's why I didn't give him
what was in your phone.

I didn't know
if I wanted him I promise.

So it wasn't about you
having feelings for me?


♪ ♪

(CHUCKLES) Check that out.


That's a good one right there.

Yeah, congratulations, Cookie Lyon.

That's the first honest thing
you've said all day.

- Oh, God.
- Now, I want you to tell me

why aren't you sure you want him back?

Because look at where I am!
Where is he, huh?

He said forget about me!
All he cares about is himself.

And yet, you still love him.
What is that all about?

- Self-esteem issues?
- I know.

- What?
- Look.


I've known him since I was 16, see?

And we practically raised each other.

Look, look, look, look, my own father,

my own father put me out
because... because of Lucious.

You know, he was all I had.

I had no choice. I had no choice!

Daddy issues. Huh.

Damon, please let me go.

Don't put me in the middle
of you and Lucious.

No, you made this about you.
You put yourself in the middle.

- No.
- Why was you even with me?


I'm sorry. I made a mistake.

What you mean, made a mistake?
Hold on, what?

mentions after some blogger

got them heated

is the full story?

I got pregnant when Eddie
Barker was running the label,

would ruin my career.

- What?
- Yeah.

He tried to force me
to have an abortion.

make or break my career.

- No.
- I mean, I didn't

plan on getting pregnant.

Me and Hakeem weren't in a good place.

So I set the appointment
and got in my car.

And I just remember crying so much.

At first, I didn't know why.

And then, it became so clear to me

that there was a real life
growing inside of me.

And I just couldn't do it.

No, you owe me a damn apology.

Apologize because Leonard...

told you to not marry him.

Yeah, it was messed up,

that you could do better.

You don't think I know
my husband is boring?

But unlike you, he actually likes me.

You think it was so easy for me,

but you had the good grades.

You had the cool friends.

You had Mom and Dad's attention.

All I ever wanted
