Empire Spoilers: Season 1, Episode 5 Synopsis — “Dangerous Bonds”
We're positive we're not alone when we say Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) is definitely our favorite character on FOX's new hitEmpire, which is why we're very worried about the synopsis for Season 1, Episode 5: "Dangerous Bonds," which hints that our girl might be receiving a threat. No one messes with Cookie!
According to the episode synopsis, Cookie gets an "anonymous gift" that she thinks could really be "a veiled threat from a person from her prison past." Could this be connected to her work with the FBI? It's still unclear exactly what kind of deal Cookie struck to get out of jail early. Maybe she agreed to rat out someone she met in prison after they admitted their dirty deeds to her? That would certainly explain why someone would threaten her from behind bars. (Or maybe she's just being paranoid...)
Meanwhile, Lucious is still doing his best to turn Hakeem into a full blown star with his first video. Why do we have a feeling Hakeem won't be the easiest guy to shoot a music vid with?
Check out the full synopsis right here, and let us know if you'll be watching in the comments below!
All is fair in love and war on an all-new Empire. Cookie receives an anonymous gift from an admirer that she believes might be a veiled threat from a person from her prison past.
