** [[spoiler: Of course, Lucious gets his own back by buying up a controlling interest in every major urban media outlet in the country. Meaning that any chance of an artist under Lyon Dynasty to get their music distributed just plummets to zero. And to add insult to injury, he steals Hakeem's lead singer from his girl group and signs her to Empire as a solo artist.]]

** [[spoiler: Of course, Lucious gets his own back by buying up a controlling interest in Apex Media, a company that owns nearly every major urban media outlet in the country. Meaning that any chance of an artist under Lyon Dynasty to get their music distributed just plummets to zero. And to add insult to injury, he steals Hakeem's lead singer from his girl group and signs her to Empire as a solo artist.]]
***[[spoiler: And then Cookie, of course, strikes back. DA Ford has her arrested on some minor charges with the intent of getting her to snitch on Lucious. Cookie seems like she's having a breakdown at the prospect of going back to prison, sheds tears and calls the DA back to the interrogation room. But instead of giving the DA any real information, she makes up some vague but believable story about Bunkie's murder being related to Lucious's desire to purchase Apex Media. The DA buys it, which gets Cookie both her freedom and the halt to Lucious's purchase of Apex that she needs to get her music back on the radio.]]

* Cookie's act of spite when Lucious has dinner with his family as a FauxAffablyEvil gesture before plotting to take down Cookie and Hakeem's competing record label. She eats half her meal, promise to keep fighting, then gets up to leave...pulling the tablecloth behind her and dragging the [[FoodGorn expensive dinner spread straight to the floor]]. The family's reactions are mixed: the boys quietly shake their heads, Rhonda is utterly shocked and exasperated, but Lucious simply ''smirks''.

** [[spoiler: Lucious getting out on bail. Not because his new lawyer managed to turn his case around, but because he found compromising pictures of the judge, with the silent threat that they would be leaked if Lucious didn't walk out of prison. It should be mentioned that all this was done ''in the courtroom itself, with the prosecutor standing literally ten feet away?'']]

* How does Lucious manage to get Frank Gathers to not hurt Cookie? He couldn't convince Gathers himself, but he managed to buy off his bodyguards. Brutal? Yes. Manipulative. Yes. Awesome? ''Hell yeah''.
