Won't happen. After watching many, many seasons of DALLAS, DYNASTY & KNOT'S LANDING, I can see where this *might* go - After all she's done for Empire, Boo Boo Kitty won't appreciate being sidelined for any of the sons. Lucious won't seriously consider her for CEO because, well, she's a girl and not blood-related. So, when Lucious starts getting physically weaker, Anika will realize what is going on & make moves to consolidate power on the board & wrest control away from the Lyons. Typical corporate power play. This will briefly unite Cookie with all her sons to repel Anika's takeover. That's what always happened on DALLAS & DYNASTY - the family fights a lot internally. But they ALWAYS unite against outsiders trying to take the company.

The only understanding Rhonda & Andre have is to get power & influence any way possible. Power turns them on & excites them as much as love. Defining it as an "open marriage" feels small somehow. Their marriage is a union made for ruthless ambition, & they love each other for it. Having sex with other people is just a tool to them. It's not based on attraction or pleasure. It's how they get things done. It's work. The reviewer asked if Lucious has enough power to get away with murder. I was under the impression that Bunkie wasn't the first person Lucious gunned down. After all, he was a drug dealer & had a territory. That doesn't happen unless you're willing to do some brutal things.

Cora is one of my favorite characters. Nothing fazes her, or should I say, nothing throws her even if she is surprised. She's one of the most grounded, practical characters in a setting where she could be very removed and isolated given her position. IMO, Cora already ended things with Bricker in her mind. She really loves Robert and wouldn't do anything to intentional hurt him or make him jealous. That is not her style. She may be discreet about personal matters. But, she's not calculating or devious in that way. I also love how she can put Robert in his place in less than 10 words & still play the good hostess. That brings me to a character that I really dislike at the moment - Miss Bunting. It's one thing to have different opinions than one's host. But, Miss Bunting is just a bad guest - ALL the time. She knew that the Russians were expats driven away from their homeland. But, what kind of insensitive idiot would actually say something to make them feel MORE unwelcome, MORE homesick, and MORE out of place at an event that was supposed to give them comfort. Class differences aren't an excuse for that behavior as hospitality was practiced in all levels of society at that time. She knew what she was doing was just mean, and she didn't care about anything except her own POV. I REALLY hope she is not in Tom's future.
