Show/Episode: Empire Season 2 Finale, Episode 18, “Past is Prologue”
Ship(s): Cookie and Lucious
It’s never dull in the land of the Lyon clan. Tea was spilled, bitches were called out, fights ensued, people died, one came back from the dead, and shots were fired. Yes, yes, yes! The second half of Empire was everything and more, and through it all Cookie and Lucious continued to have the best chemistry in the worst family.
When we left the Lyons Rhonda was in the hospital because she was pushed down the stairs by an unknown person; best guesses went to Anika and we found out later on in the season that that guess was correct. Rhonda lost her baby, Andre went a little off the rails, but managed to pull himself back, and this was happening all while Camilla was running Empire with Hakeem as her new toy and CEO. Despite Hakeem’s anger at Lucious, Cookie convinces ‘Keem to be loyal to the family, and he sends a sex tape of himself and Camilla to her wife. This ends in a murder-suicide when Lucious catches Camilla killing Mimi and convinces her to kill herself. Lucious and Thirsty stayed busy doing felonious things, and Cookie stayed busy doing Cirque du Soleil quality antics to try and keep her family from killing each other.
