It was evident the bank was going to decline the request. The meeting happened a little too early in the episode for anything good to come of it. I can't be the only one who wanted Cookie to open a can of whoop ass on the banker for the way he spoke to her and Andre.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/10/empire-season-4-episode-3-review-evil-manners/
