Wednesday's episode of Empire saw a kinder, gentler Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) – but only because she was successfully playing with everyone's strings like the leopard print-wearing puppet master she is.
While youngest son Hakeem (Bryshere Gray) still won't give her the time of day, Cookie managed to gain one more client in Tiana (Serayah McNeill) Hakeem's kind-of girlfriend, and orchestrate another in jailed rapper Titan (Jim Beans).
Meanwhile, Lucious's (Terrence Howard) old boss, Billy Beretti (Judd Nelson) threatened to bring Empire down should they go through with going public.

Now there's a gift bag with bite!
Terrence Howard helped auction off an adorable puppy on Oct. 17 during the Alfred Mann Foundation Gala in Santa Monica, Calif. The actor was placed in charge of caring for the Cavapoo during the evening, which aimed to raise funds for individuals suffering from debilitating medical diseases. Howard spent so much time with the pup that he even expressed difficulty in handing it over after a winner had been chosen.
While Howard has no pets of his own, he has put his love of animals on display at past events. Perhaps it's time he considered expanding his brood?
