Oh boy. Following Lucious and Cookie’s steamy hookup on last week’s ‘Empire,’ it seems like the on again-off again couple are very much on again– and they’re making out all over the place!
This can only lead to drama. On the Feb. 18 episode of Empire, Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) finally did what we all knew they would do… Ya know. Of course, because it’s Empire, their sneaky hookup was not going to go unnoticed. In the upcoming Feb. 25 episode, it seems as though the two are definitely still at it!
‘Empire’: Cookie & Lucious Kiss
Tread carefully, Lucious.
Following weeks of very obvious sexual and emotional friction, on the most recent Empire, Cookie and Lucious finally consummated their tension. This, of course, followed the engagement of Lucious and Anika (Grace Gealey) (which happened on the episode just before, mind you).
Obviously, Anika came home early from the vacation which had left Lucious and Cookie with the house to themselves and saw everything. Well, we will obviously see the backlash of the hookup on the newest episode but, from the looks of it, Cookie and Lucious aren’t ready to call it quits!
Obviously, if Lucious and Cookie do begin a full blown affair, this leaves a ton of questions.
For starters, does that mean the end of Lucious and Anika? Obviously, when Cookie got out of jail, it became clear pretty much immediately that Anika didn’t stand a chance against the mother of Lucious’ children.
And yet, rather than break things off with Anika before she got hurt, he takes things up a level in a major way by asking her to marry him. Of course, this has us thinking.
If Lucious has loved Cookie all this time, and she had gotten out of jail and came back into his life, did Lucious only ask Anika to marry him because of ulterior motives? With Anika as his wife, he’d have a better chance with her doctor father, both in terms of getting him to falsely vouch for his good health for the IPO, as well as get him the most modern treatments for his ALS.
Just sayin, things smell a bit suspicious around the Lyon household.
Do you think Cookie and Lucious belong together? Or should he follow through with his engagement to Anika?
