'Empire' Stars Fill Us In On The Straight Up Crazy Finale

It's Cookie vs. Boo Boo Kitty and we are so ready.

"Empire" ends its history-making freshman season tonight (March 18) with a two-hour finale, and things are about to reach a boiling point for the Lyon family.

After Lucious' shocking confession last week -- in which he revealed that he was Lola's father, not Jamal -- the Lyons are more dysfunctional than ever, and it has some acting out in unexpected ways. (We're looking at you, Jamal and Ryan.)

"There's a very, very extremely steamy scene on top of a certain Lyon's father's desk, and I think that is somewhat of a very enjoyable payback for Jamal," Jussie Smollett told MTV News. And he's not the only one getting payback. Check out what Smollett and his co-star Bryshere Gray (AKA Yazz) had to say about the shocking season one finale of "Empire," below:

Okay, we all agree that Cookie is going to kick Boo Boo Kitty's -- er, Anika's -- ass, right? Good.

As for Hakeem, it's clear the littlest Lyon is rebelling against his father, and we wouldn't be surprised if his mystery hookup is Anika (gasp!).

"Hakeem looked up to his father like a hero, like Superman," Gray told us. "He wanted to be just like Lucious until Hakeem started to see his true personality. He learned that his father was not the type of role model he needed. He has no guidance in the world and he's trying to search for it through distractions and mistakes in life."

Yeah, he's definitely making moves on Anika tonight. "The older the berry, the sweeter the juice," right 'Keem?
