Well, we saw this one coming. In a sneak peek for the new episode of ‘Empire,’ Cookie and Malcolm’s chemistry finally gets tested out–and it’s very steamy!
Lucious (Terrence Howard) better not find out about this! On the Mar. 11 episode of Empire, it seems like Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) is finally getting what she wants out of her crush on her ex-husband’s security guard, Malcolm (Derek Luke). In this sneak peak, we see the two of them totally make out behind Lucious’ back– certainly nothing can go badly with that right?
‘Empire’: Cookie & Malcolm Kiss
After we saw Cookie literally spread her legs in an attempt to seduce Malcolm on Empire, it seems like the young security guard is finally falling prey to Cookie’s predator.
“May I have a word?” Malcolm asks after knocking on the door to Cookie’s office. We already smell ulterior motives.
“Did I violate some top secret, super classified security code?” Cookie asks him with a raised brow. And yes, she’s clearly flirting.
Malcolm corrects her, though, saying that he is actually the one who’s violated the code–his own personal code of conduct. “I’ve been disloyal to my commander, by falling for his wife.”
Falling for who now?
‘Are You Saying You’re Falling For Me?’
With this revelation finally out in the open, Malcolm explains to Cookie that he will need to be keeping his distance from her. But just as he steps out to leave, Cookie gets up from the desk to stop him.
“Are you saying you’re falling for me?” she asks, very obviously intrigued, and very obviously not upset. He apologizes to her, then turns around to once again try and walk out. Nice try!
“Malcolm,” she says, walking towards him. She looks him deep in the eyes for a couple seconds– and then she totally starts making out with him! And guess what? He kisses her back. I mean, duh.
Oh boy. Lucious is not going to respond well to this, right?
Do you think Cookie should be with Malcolm or keep trying to patch things up with Lucious?
