Empire Recap: Cookie Takes on Elle Dallas, a Drug-Addicted Has-Been

Originally posted 02/12/2015 07:15AM

The client roster of misfit toys belonging to Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) has grown ever larger.

In "Out, Damned Spot," we meet Elle Dallas (Courtney Love), a has-been whom Anika (Grace Gealey) is keen to drop from Empire entirely.

Empire Recap: In Which We Learn Why Cookie Was Released from Prison Early (and Why She May Soon Return)

Originally posted 02/05/2015 08:25AM

Now that we know exactly how Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) managed to wrangle herself an early release, she jumps to a conclusion in Wednesday's episode of Empire that causes her to react in a way that will almost certainly have her behind bars once again. (Unless, of course, she can get someone to take the fall for her – it worked for Lucious, after all)

In "Dangerous Bonds," Jamal (Jussie Smollett) finally records a single, Hakeem (Bryshere Gray) shoots a music video, and Andre (Trai Byers) sets out to drive a wedge in between his younger brothers.

Also, Lucious (Terrence Howard) finds some common ground with Anika's (Grace Gealey) "bougie debutante" parents after he proposes with an 18-cfarat diamond ring like the one Richard Burton gave Elizabeth Taylor. True love.
