Critic Reviews for What We May Be

I think Ray Austin -- who plays Cookie's father, John Holloway -- is phenomenal.

You might want to sit down before you read this oh-so-shocking revelation: When Empire put Cookie Lyon at the center of an episode, it got the best episode of its third season so far.

After dinner, Phylicia says that she can tell why Angelo admires Cookie, but if she hurts her only son, she will destroy her. A success as far as any first meeting with a significant other's mom goes!

Yes, Empire continues to deliver drama as delicious and decadent as your grandma's pecan pie, and... Episode 7 was a prime example of it at it's best. Why was it so good? Even more than Empire normally does, "What We May Be" focused on family.
