What’s going to happen to Empire now that Lucious is no longer CEO? Who pushed Rhonda down the stairs? Was it Anika? (I bet it was Anika). These are probably some questions you have after watching the last episode of Empire. Thankfully you can ask the cast and creators these questions at the upcoming PaleyFest LA 2016. Empire is kicking off the festival Friday, March 11 at 7:30 pm at the Dolby Theatre. All your favorite stars like Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollett, Bryshere Gray and many others will be there. Maybe Taraji P. Henson will give out cookies like she did at the Golden Globes. Only way to find out is to go. In all seriousness I really hope she hands out chocolate chip cookies. You can never go wrong with chocolate chip cookies.
