Show/Episode: Empire, Season 3, Episode 9, “A Furnace For Your Foe”
Ship(s): Cookie and
The first half of this season has been as shocking and dramatic as you would expect. The biggest surprise this season, however, has been the romance between Cookie and city councilman Angelo Dubois (played by Taye Diggs) that has stuck. However, this is Empire, and ther are plenty of moments that surprised and shocked me. Here are my top moments of Empire’s top moments of the season so far:
Cookie Gets a New Man
Cookie meets Angelo when he and Jamal have a disagreement on a local radio show and it results in Jamal and Angelo working together to benefit Angelo’s teen summit group. They had a rocky start; despite the fact that Lucious is married to Anika to keep her from testifying against him, he is pulling out all the stops to remind Cookie of the “good old days”. However, Angelo’s charm and persistence after a few false starts begins to win Cookie over. Angelo is a polished, educated, and seemingly bourgeois politician. However, he proves time and again that he man enough to handle Cookie and deserves her. (See some of the moments below.) Empire is making me believe in Angelo, but we all know that Lucious is on the prowl and if he can’t have Cookie, no one can.
