Did Jamal bite the dust on the ‘Empire’ finale? Somebody died on the May 19 episode, and it was downright crazy. Plus, get the scoop straight from the showrunner on the insane death.
Whoa. The Empire finale was absolute insanity. Jamal was shot in season 2’s penultimate episode, and fans were left wondering if he was going to make it. The season finale of Empire featured the shocking death of a main character. Did the Lyons lose one of their own?!

So, Jamal miraculously survived after being shot by Freda. But someone else didn’t make it out alive. Rhonda and Anika (a.k.a. Boo Boo Kitty) had a nasty fight on the top of a building. They had each other by the throat and were dangerously leaning over the edge.
Andre came outside and watched in horror as someone fell to their death. Was it Rhonda or Anika?! Fans won’t find out until season 3. And don’t think there’s a possibility someone didn’t die. Empire’s showrunner confirmed that one main cast member is no longer among the living.
“The cliffhanger is someone dies,” showrunner Ilene Chaiken told our sister site Variety. Whoever died will impact Andre’s life in a huge way.
“Andre just witnessed someone plunging to her death and whoever it was is obviously going to determine how Andre goes forward with his life,” Ilene revealed to Variety.
If Anika is the one who died, Rhonda and Andre will never know if Anika was the one to push Rhonda down the stairs, killing her baby. If Rhonda died, will Andre go down a dark path? We’ll just have to wait and see!
