Her name’s Cookie, take a bite!

Empire ended it’s beyond-impressive first season with a two-hour season finale on FOX last night, and it did not disappoint!

The Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard musical drama already had an impressive year of guest stars, but the Wednesday night’s final chapter pulled out all the stops.

A metric ton of celebrities came out to play some parts in Lee Daniels‘ closer, including Jennifer Hudson, Rita Ora, Snoop Dogg, Juicy J, and Patti LaBelle!

But the cameos weren’t even the best part!

Now we don’t want to give too much away… but if you haven’t seen the episode(s) yet, you really have to.

We’re talking major plot points ahead of season two; like a murder, an arrest, and even a pregnancy!

As of right now, it’s unclear exactly when Lucious & Co. will make their return to the silver screen, but we’re sure it’ll be a huge part of FOX’s 2015-2016 season!
