'Empire' Sneak Peek: Cookie and Lucious Argue in Bed Over His Secret 'Evil Son' (Exclusive)
By Philiana Ng
Oh, the drama.
Empire wouldn't be Empire without some Lyon family dramatics and on Wednesday's episode, titled "In Loving Virtue," Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and Lucious (Terrence Howard) have a spat over Kingsley (A.Z. Kelsey), who Lucious recently discovered was his secret son.
"Seems like every day with you I'm blindsided or a new grenade blows up over my damn face," Cookie says, understandably unhappy over the Kingsley revelation.
"I didn't know this was my son. I didn't know that!" Lucious says, trying to defend himself.
Cookie laughs at the absurdity of Lucious' response, telling him that "It's not my fault" and "I didn't know" are "two different things."
"I thought no matter what, we had each other's back," Lucious argues, prompting Cookie to fire back with her own heated response. "That's what I want. Hello?! That's what I want. We gotta start doing things a lot different around here because..."
"What do you mean, different? Everybody who ever gained anything gained it at somebody else's pain," Lucious snarls.
But Cookie isn't having it. "Where'd you get that little nugget, huh? Your evil son? He looks just like you." Watch the dramatic sneak peek below.
