Despite their differences, Cookie Lyon and Lucious Lyon always try to be on the same page for their family. But, that wasn’t always the case on Empire, especially back in Season 1.
In this flashback video, Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) tries to convince Lucious (Terrence Howard) to launch both Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray) and Jamal’s (Jussie Smollett) careers at the same time.
“OK, well my professional opinion is that you should launch them both at the same time at Leviticus. The press will eat it up. The crowd would love to see two brothers on-stage at the same time,” she pleads with him. Watch the clip above to see Lucious’s response.
