Season 2 of Empire picks up right where season 1 left off with (spoiler) Lucious Lyon heading to jail. Thanks to a video creator Lee Daniels posted on his Instagram with new cast member Chris Rock and star Terrence Howard, fans were given a sneak peek of what’s coming up for Lyon behind bars.

Check out the video and see what clues you find.

'Match Made In Heaven' Preview Screening

On Tuesday, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Claudia Jordan found herself in some real drama. TMZ reports that Jordan was literally in the middle of a six car pile-up in Atlanta.

While driving on Interstate 20, the two cars in front of her crashed into each other, she hit her brakes and was then rear-ended by the two cars behind her. Sources say Jordan suffered whiplash, but was otherwise unharmed.

Amy Poehler made a guest appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers and brought back an SNL skit favorite, “Really?!,” with the help of her old costar. This time, the target was a sexist Sports Illustrated contributor, Andy Benoit. In response to a Sports Illustrated editor’s tweet about a goal made in the Women’s World Cup, Benoit tweeted women’s sports weren’t worth watching. Benoit has since apologized, but that didn’t stop Amy and Seth from making joke after joke at his expense.
