So here it is guys, your first look at Vivica A. Fox as she appears on next week’s episode of Empire. As previously reported, Vivica has been booked for a multi-episode arc playing the role of Candace, Cookie’s estranged sister. Word around the water cooler is that Candace and Lucious knew each other intimately back in the day (but you ain’t heard that from me).
Vivica is set to appear in two episodes before Empire goes on hiatus. My Bad Parts airs November 18th and Sinned Against airs the week after that. I’m hoping Fox makes previews available to bloggers, because I am beyond excited to see Taraji P. Henson, Vivica Fox and Tasha Smith all on my screen at the same time.
You can check out overviews of each episode below, as well as newly released stills.
My Bad Parts: Battle lines are drawn when Lucious attempts to assert his power by releasing a rap by Freda challenging Hakeem as his heir. Meanwhile, Cookie’s estranged sister Candace pays her a special visit. Jamal is in the midst of working on a special endorsement deal, while Anika receives some life-changing news.

Sinned Against: Cookie and Candace team up with a former prison inmate (Rosie O’Donnell) in an attempt to rescue their sister Carol. Back at Empire, Jamal and singer Skye Summers (Alicia Keys) begin collaborating, and soon discover they share an even deeper bond than music. Meanwhile. Laz (Adam Rodriguez) has fallen in love with Cookie, but things start to get a bit complicated when Cookie finds out who he really is.
