Warning: This story contains spoilers from Wednesday’s season three finale of Empire, “Toil and Trouble, Part 2.”

WATCH: Empire Season 3 Finale

The end of season three brought happy news to the Lyon family. Lucious (Terrence Howard) showed Giuliana (Nia Long) the door and revealed to Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) that he had been in love with her all along. Not only that, but he wanted to leave the business behind and travel the world with her. Subsequently, Lucious gave Andre (Trai Byers) control of the company. But his younger brothers weren’t left empty-handed: Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray) was finally reunited with baby Bella and Jamal (Jussie Smollett) met a handsome and extremely talented up-and-coming singer.

However, in true Empire fashion, not everything was what it seemed. The object of Jamal’s new affection turned out to actually be a member of the DuBois family as part of Diana’s master plan to bring the Lyons down. Lucious’ mom framed Anika (Grace Byers) for Tariq’s murder by putting her fingerprints on the knife, and she was arrested.

But those twists were nothing compared to the final moments of the hour. Feeling guilty about his father’s change-of-heart, Andre desperately tried to stop his season-long plan of killing his father, but his co-conspirators were already too far along and the car bomb went off moments after Andre told his mother and father to get away from the vehicle. While Cookie survived, Lucious was much more gravely injured. Flash-forward three months to Lucious lying in a coma with his worried family surrounding him, as well as a nurse (Demi Moore in the first of her multi-episode arc.) Lucious suddenly woke up, only to seemingly have no memory of his family.

Who will be returning and how will this affect the Lyons family in Season 4?

According to showrunner Ilene Chaiken, Andre has control of the company now. It remains to be seen what kind of leader he’ll be, but he’s going to living with a tremendous amount of guilt. Shyne (Xzibit) played a big role and he’s going to have to be dealt with whether he’s going to have to be deal with just by Andre or whether others find out, he’s a big part of where the Lyons are now.

Demi Moore’s character is going to be an integral part of the family dynamics as Lucious will be heavily dependent upon her and entwined in some kind of a relationship with her that already promises to be a little twisted.

As for the DuBois family, the Lyons ruined one of her’s, Diana DuBois favorite and most beloved son. She’s not going to stop until she’s exacted a fitting revenge on them. The DuBoises will be the best adversaries for the Lyons in season four.

After Anika was framed for Tariq’s murder, she finally see that trying to be a part of the Lyon family has been a non-winning proposition for her and maybe she needs to extricate herself one way or another. But whether you can even extricate yourself from the Lyons once you’ve been entangled with them becomes the question for Anika.

On Cookie and Lusious, who is Cookie without Lucious? Lucious is in an incapacitated state, which is where season four start, who is Cookie?
