Will Empire's Second Season Be Able to Top These Shocking Season 1 Moments?

Like the rest of us, you've probably been impatiently counting down the days until everyone's favorite musical melodrama – Empire, duh – finally returns on Wednesday.

Despite our overwhelming excitement to see Cookie (Taraji P. Henson), Lucious (Terrence Howard) and the rest of the Lyon family returns to the small screen, there is one worry that keeps nagging at us: How on earth are they going to be able to top the first season?

After all Empire packed a whole lot of drama into its very first season – we're talking musical numbers, backstabbing, seduction, murder, attempted murder and jail time ... to name just a few – and it's hard to imaging what creators Lee Daniels and Danny Strong will come up with that can top all of that insanity.

So what, exactly, is season 2 of Empire up against? Let's take a look (warning: spoilers ahead).
