Cookie Lyon does not want Jamal working with Freda Gatz because she found out about her father being Frank Gathers.  After Stacee Run Run doesn't show up to record the song with Jamal, the singer opts to invite Freda Gatz back on the track but Freda isn't too excited to do so.

In additional Empire news, Andre seems to be working with Lucious.  After Andre and Lucious visit Lucious' mother's grave, the two team up in order to ensure that Hakeem's shareholder's meeting is a disaster.

Jamal knows his mother far too well and ends up calling Cookie out regarding his song.  Jamal explains to Cookie that they are usually on the same page when it comes to music yet this song has been different.

Jamal won't allow Cookie to continue to act in an abnormal manner without calling her out.  Will this lead to beef between Freda and the Lyon family? Will Hakeem ever be able to forgive Lucious?
