‘Empire’ Showrunner on Lucious’ Mother’s Shocking Reveal: ‘We Have Known All Along’

Variety: Wait — she’s alive?

“Empire’s” latest episode revealed that Lucious’ (Terrence Howard) mother, who is played by Kelly Rowland in flashbacks, is actually alive, even though it appeared she shot herself in a sad suicide back when Lucious was a child. On Wednesday’s episode, his mother was seen at a special care home where Thirsty (Andre Royo) visited to drop off an envelope of cash for her, as she sat in a chair, looking as if she is not lucid.

The story is too old to be commented.
