The season 3 premiere of Empire isn't the first episode Juanita has appeared in. She was also seen in the following episodes: The Outspoken King, The Lyon Who Cried Wolf, Rise by Sin and Past Is Prologue. As Lucious' housekeeper, she has seen it all. She watched Anika move out once Cookie was released from prison and she recently welcomed Calhoun, and baby Bella, into Lucious' house.

We thought that Juanita's days working for Lucious were over after she was fired by Lucious' mother, Leah Walker. Lucious made sure she was allowed back into his mansion, where she has since returned. Leah's other son, "Tariq the Freak" is back and we don't like him! He tried to insult Cookie while he was at Lucious' house for dinner.
While we hated seeing Anika and Lucious kiss, in front of Cookie, during dinner, we loved seeing Cookie's boys defend her. When Tariq tried to call Cookie out Andre became a different person and most likely would have attacked Tariq if his family wasn't around! I can't wait until next Wednesday.
