Apparently, Lucious (Terrence Howard) and Giuliana (Nia Long) are really the couple, now. All because of Lucious, Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) left Angelo (Taye Diggs) and ruined his career. His mother, Diana (Phylicia Rashad) retaliated by taking baby Bella.
Lucious is focused on getting his granddaughter back, but he is also focused on Inferno. Finally doing Vegas, Giuliana is in charge of the project, and she’s running Lucious. She disagreed with Thirsty (Andre Royo) and now he’s fired from Empire.
Because of this, Thirsty and Cookie have teamed up to get Giuliana out of Empire business. They tried enlisting Shine (Xzibit), Andre (Trai Byers), Jamal (Jussie Smollett), and Hakeem (Bryshere “Yazz” Gray), but their infighting is ruining things. The fans on Twitter want them to get it together and get rid of Giuliana, not before Cookie kicks that butt, though.
