Critic reviews for Cupid Kills

Unlike previous installments the flashbacks served a purpose tonight! They shaped who Lucious and Cookie are as people today.

Taraji P. Henson got a gorgeous showcase of an episode, as Cookie accepted an invite from Angelo to a hoity-toity opera gala, then handled some deeply personal business in the ladies' room.

I... am struggling to pick my jaw up from the floor after that last scene.
