It’s been almost two years of “Empire,” believe it or not and the favorite character is still Cookie (Taraji P. Henson). Episodes like tonight show just why Cookie is the real leader and boss of the Lyon family. The seventeen years she spent in prison showed her toughness.
Tonight’s episode delved deeper into how much her father loved her and believed in her. He was literally dead set against Cookie being with Lucious (Terrence Howard). While Lucious did make her rich beyond her wildest dreams, it still went against Mr. Holloway’s wishes.
Cookie had a lot going against her, as she tried to win Angelo’s (Taye Diggs) mother over. The first impression was horrible, as Diana (Phylicia Rashad) was stood up by Cookie, unintentionally. Then, each of her sons had drama that Lucious tried to play up, but how Cookie handled it all won over fans and Diana, who warned her, still.
