Cookie and Lucious, Empire
Empire is a show built around hugely dramatic moments. Thankfully, it centers on the relationship between Cookie and Lucious Lyon, so the drama is never hard to find. Lucious and Cookie are totally in love one minute, and at each other’s throats the next.
Their relationship is hugely volatile, and has given them both a huge amount of instability. It’s no wonder that, despite their wealthy lifestyle, all three of their kids have issues. They didn’t grow up in the most stable environment, and that’s largely Cookie and Lucious’s fault. Their relationship is simply too unstable to ever function as it should.
