Empire Fall Finale Sneak Peek: Hakeem Brings Cookie to Tears

It’s not every day that Empire‘s Cookie Lyon shows her softer side — and who’d have guessed a return to prison would bring it to the surface?

In the following preview video from Wednesday’s fall finale (9/8c on Fox), Taraji P. Henson’s alter ego gets misty at the Wallace Correctional Facility’s Family Day, as son Hakeem gives a speech about her incarceration — and their recent reconnection.

As with most things Lyon, though, somebody else gets dissed in the process.

    Aww…and I’m appreciating that they are handling this in a way that Hakeem and Jamal are back to being the close brothers they are and that Jamal is, well, actually just being the middle child he is in divorce by trying to make his parents get along.

      Actually, the traits of oldest, middle and youngest are all coming through in a way that makes those characters so believable.

    Hakeem’s growth is the one thing that has been handled well this season.
