Empire Season 2 Finale

Empire's 'Scary, Insane, Crazy' Finale Will Solve a Major Mystery

Empire will close out Season 2 with the mother of all showdowns.

Co-star Kaitlin Doubleday, whose pregnant alter ego Rhonda was last seen getting pushed down a really long and bumpy flight of stairs by an unknown assailant, told TVLine Friday at PaleyFest that the identity of the perpetrator will be revealed in the season finale.

“She realizes who pushed her and… she gets to confront [him/her] in a very dynamic, scary, insane, crazy way,” Doubleday teased. “I think the audience [will Rhondabe] waiting for that confrontation for all eight episodes.”

And don’t assume the attacker is Crazy Anika, Doubleday cautions. “It’s weird because it started out as a certain person, for sure,” she admitted. “Then it changed for a bunch of episodes. There were a good five episodes we shot that I didn’t know who pushed me. Then they [settled] on somebody [and] that’s when she finally realizes, ‘OK, it was this person.'”

Doubleday, meanwhile, also shared that shortly after Empire returns on March 30 (9/8c, Fox), Rhonda will team up with Lyon Family Enemy No. 1. “Rhonda actually ends up working with Camilla,” shared the actress of Naomi Campbell’s character, who wrestled control of Empire Entertainment from Lucious in the fall finale. “There are some strange, weird alliances that happen that are unexpected in the next part of the season that involve Rhonda.” (Reporting by Vlada Gelman)

    So I take it Rhonda survives the fall, but the baby doesn’t?

    I guess this answers the “who lives/who dies” question they left us with at the midseason finale. I’m just hoping they find a solid storyline for Anika; her character has been tragically under-utilized this season.

    How is it NOT Anika? I’ll have to rewatch the last ep because I could have sworn I SAW Anika push her.

    • ZisforZombie says:

      Yes – I totally agree! I swear it was Anika. Maybe I missed something…

    • Dude says:

      They definitely wanted you to think it was Anika but the fact that they just showed the person from the back lead me to believe it was someone else

    • julie says:

      Yes, it was annika who pushed Rhonda! The red bottomed flat shoes she wore and she was jealous of how much attention Rhonda was getting from Lucious. Annika has got to go. Andre will probably shoot her

  5. D. says:

    I forgot the show existed. Damn it feels like it’s been a year since the last episode.

  6. Lex. says:

    Who is the person that pushed her? Who ever it was had on red bottom shoes. It could be a male or a female. Can’t wait til it comes up.
