Oh.My..God! Alfre Woodard is Cookie’s mama! 👊 Ahem “Boo Boo Kitty” is back & smoking cigars. She’s conspiring with Eddie Barker, which is also bad for her health. Eddie still plans to take Empire. #falseface
The eppy starts with Lucious bringing Cookie breakfast in bed. She’s conspiring with Thirsty to find Poundcake’s child. He comes through.
Her name is Maya; adopted by some white people. Cookie’s going to handle this herself. Poundcake is dying. She don’t have time to dance around the arena. #loyalfriend
Lucious wants to get rid of Eddie…personally. Thirsty gives him papers to sign. He refuses. Lucious threatens to tell the SEC. #underhanded trading. He laughs. “Enjoy the offices while you can” He walks out. #booyah
What did Eddie do to gain such power? Shine owns 20% of sum’n, so what does Eddie have? 🤔 Gotta go back and “read the fine print ” #Kanyeshrug
Cookie goes to the dance studio. Maya dances. She’s pretty & very good. #ballerina
Cook has a flashback. Carol visits… “mama reached out” & “mama’s here” She comes current & introduces herself. Maya is thrilled! Cookie lies. They’re holding auditions. Interested? YES! Empire @ 2 tomorrow. She’ll be there.
Lucious rolls up on Eddie, giving a party for Tiana with Tory, peppered in. They’re killing it. #1 on everything. The Lyon cubs seem obsolete
He didn’t invite Lucious, it’ s to “wow” the Board. He’s successful. They are wow’d. Eddie toasts Lucious. Lucious stares.
I must say, Whitaker is rocking this disgusting role. He’s so creepy & slippery
Lucious wants to kill him and he should. #backstabbing #traitor Lucious meets with his boys, Hakeem & Jamal. Get on it! #hitmakers
Jamal meets with Tory…they plan a collective. Anonymous
Andre meets with his Rev, then Hakeem in an old basement to live stream. His numbers are guaranteed if he can be his big brother again. #sweet “ok” deal. Jamal “no”
Gisele rolls up on Eddie while he’s “wining” Edna of the board. She walks & suggest he get his personal affairs in order, after Monique & Celeste join in bitching about. ..everything. Arranged by Lucious, he sends champagne. #cheers #booyahback
Eddie makes a new ally. Shine! He sells Snake Oil & promises. They shake on it.
Tory gets a tat on her ass and is encouraged to use again…by Eddie! “Just a little something to take the edge off”
Tiana is a bitch to Maya, she runs and Cookie puts Tiana in check. Leading Cookie to tell Maya about her mom…Maya walks. ✋ Talk to da’hand
Flashback. Mama Loretha is visiting. It’s not going well. Yelling. Screaming. Name calling. #ouch
Shine meets with Eddie…and Lucious. He decides to go with the Devil he knows. #Lucious & leaves. They threaten each other. Eddie smiles & walks away., saying “We ain’t done”
The Basement: Jamal arrives & still won’t talk to Dre. Tiana crashes the stage..so does Blake. #protégé
Upstairs; Tiana is all over Hakeem. I don’t trust her anymore. I’m thinking sex tape, when they’re doing the nasty. But “no” not yet anyway
Lucious is loading his gun. Cookie finds out about Eddie. She stops him. I ain’t saying he should kill him…but I understand ⚰
Cookie & Lucious surprise Eddie. They have sealed artist cases. He signs “can’ t say “no” to Cookie.
Cookie visits Poundcake. Lies. Didn’t find your daughter. 😔
Across town, Eddie’s still treading water! He ain’t dead yet! He’s now wining, Anika! #boobookitty
A clause in Anika’s custody agreement, gives her control of Bella’s shares. She’s in on the Empire take down. Charge? She wants to be COO! Eddie lights her cigar!
