After last week’s Empire, when Cookie turned down Angelo DuBois’s proposal and then Angelo listed all the illegal things he’d done over a hot mic, his mother was not pleased about her son’s now-tarnished reputation.

Cookie returned to Empire saying “It ain’t soft-ass Angelo who wants to go to war.
