We are almost done with the season but episode 8 will reveal another mystery that Cookie and the family didn't anticipate. Is the Empire in trouble? Or is the Empire bringing trouble.
There are still a lot of questions that left us hanging last episode. However, this should not dismay the fans as Empire is back with another episode that will blow your mind. The latest episode will focus on Taraji P. Henson(Cookie) and Jeremy L. Carver*Lucious). A lot of photos and fan videos circulating the internet about the latest episode already. It seems to be that Cookie is being hunted by her past.
Empire Season 3 Episode 8: "The Unkindest Cut"
Before we proceed with episode 8, let me just do a simple recap on episode 7. Empire Season 3 Episode 7 focuses on Taraji P. Henson and a video. The video shows her late father guiding Jussie Smollet(Jamal) in a new song about her. Fast forward to episode 8. The synopsis of episode 8 will be a little bit weird. Cookie(Taraji P. Henson) will go down the memory lane and tries to revise what's happening in the present.
Their father daughter relationship wasn't always that good. They had shares of ups and downs and they were considered as mortal enemies. There was a revelation on the new episode that a teenaged Cookie who was played by actress Ajiona Alexus had something going on with Lucious(Jeremy L. Carver). Her dad opposes their relationship and that's where the turmoil started. When her father found drug money and guns in her room, he kicked out cookie.
Cookie was upset with her father's decision and was rebellious at that time. Her father was visibly upset with her daughter and after a few days, her father past away. Up to this day, Cookie still blames herself for the death of his father. Cookie was bewildered about what she saw on the video and the pain was again killing her. She feels very distressed right now to the point that she missed a fundraiser event for Taye Diggs(Angelo).
The Dysfunctional Family And Its Misery
We already know that their family ain't perfect just like everybody. However, just when we thought that they've already settled their differences, another concern popped out of nowhere. Cookie(Taraji P. Henson) will never get tired of defending her family, that is a fact. But sometimes, the pressure is too big ever for her. Synopsis states that Andre plans to sabotage a planned Tiana appearance to get Nessa some publicity instead.
Lucious will be in big trouble in the next episode as Tarig(Morocco Omair) and Leah(Leslie Uqgrams) joined forces to take him down. Philip will then team up with Jamal in order to move past his PTSD. The Unkindest Cut will surely be another cliff hanger episode. Let's just hope that the "family" will sort everything out.
Empire Season 3 Episode 8 will be aired Wednesday on Fox at 9PM ET. If you are not at home by that time and you want to watch the show, you can check Fox.com website as they offer free streaming on their shows.
