I was holding off on reading it because I'm still getting caught up, and spoilers, but it seems like we don't even have one!

THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED, stat. The PPK needs a Safe Space to talk about what a BAMF/HBiC Cookie is. Here are a few talking points to get you started:

1. The BJ bib. RIGHT?!

2. Where did Cookie's fake ponytail come from when she gets out of jail? She says in the show that she got out wearing the same outfit she was wearing when she was convicted (1998-ish? They said 17 years in jail), and they show her during her trial wearing that outfit with a blonde wedge cut. So where does this ponytail come from in 2015? I'm pretty sure they don't sell hairpieces at the commissary.

3. I love Naomi Campbell saying "what is a 'bae'?" in her posh accent. Do you think she and Terence Howard hung out on set and exchanged tips on physically abusing people?

4. Am I mistaken in thinking that is a Kara Walker silhouette print in Lola's nursery? Am I mistaken in thinking that is an incredibly mature subject (google her if you're unfamiliar; the print in the show appears to have a lynched child in the upper corner) and not at all appropriate for the Cutest Little Girl in the World's bedroom?

I was talking this over with a friend and we concluded that the ponytail was made of 17 years' worth of hair from bisques who Cookie cut in prison (but only cause they deserved it, because Cookie is just). Mystery solved.

Joanna and I tweet about it!

So far my favorite line of the series is:

"Cookie--"
"Yeahhhhhhh, that's my name, take a bite!"

OMG the scene where she's stumbling down the street after the purple drank and Malcolm saves her from that mugger... then she's drunkenly hitting on him like "take a bite of Coookiieeeee!" I was laughing so hard. I love me some damn Cookie.

Cookie is the best tv character of the entire year. Whenever they sing it's so annoying, mostly because it doesn't involve Cookie.

Also I love that she looks like the human version of the female Gremlin from Gremlins 2.

My new favorite Cookie-ism: "Give me one reason not to throw this drink in yo bitchass face."

Good cliffhanger! I personally think in Season 2 Lucious is going to hire a crack-bang legal team and beat the rap against him. Then he'll be out of jail and free to operate more Machiavellian power grabs.

Who's watching Season 2?

My favorite part so far is the US Attorney whose boobs are spilling out of her top.

Oh but her "excuse us. EXCUSE US." moment was so good, though.

I have a hard time liking Gabby because I hear she's majorly obnoxious (egocentric) IRL.

I love how Lucious drops a hot track in one take in a janitor's closet in prison, complete with autotune backup singers. People aren't forking around when they say he's a musical genius.

PS Cookie's plaid pantsuit OMAGAWD only she could pull it off.

holy shiz, y'all, i didn't start watching empire when the rest of the world did, but i'm currently on my 16th episode in the past 6 or 7 days and i CANNOT GET ENOUGH. hoping to be all caught up very soon!

cookie absolutely kills me. and porsha! and becky! omg and i love carol.

my only teensy tiny crankiness is directed toward the over-the-top soapy music at the end of certain scenes. unnecessary.

oh but also: cartoon heart eyes for jussie smollett.
