Empire season 3 episode 5 will continue to follow the Lyons.Facebook/Empire

Empire season 3 will not be aired on October 26 as the musical drama is taking a week-long hiatus before the telecast of episode 5. The sequel, titled One Before Another, will focus on the challenges faced by the Lyons, especially Lucious and Andre.

The eldest son of the hip hop-performing family could finally get a chance to prove his leadership qualities in the upcoming episode. Although Trai Byers' character has been facing a set of personal problems after his wife Rhonda's death, he managed to fill the gap with Nessa's presence.

So it is the right time for Andre to confidently move forward and help his father with the family business while his siblings are busy with their own personal problems. According to the official synopsis, Terrence Howard's character and his son will be on high alert as they wait for Shine to retaliate after their latest business encounter went south.

In the meantime, Jamal will team up with Hakeem for a live performance because he believes that the collaboration could help him face his fears and confidently perform in front of his fans.

Additionally, the short summary for the next episode also hints at troubled moments for Cookie as she will be caught off-guard during a routine meeting with her probation officer.

The popular Fox musical drama will only return with a new episode next Wednesday, November 2, at 9pm EST. Until then fans can watch the first four episodes of season 3 online here.
