For weeks, previews leading up to Wednesday’s episode of “Empire” said that one member of the Lyon’s family will not make it to season 3. To fans’ surprise, Jamal (Jussie Smollett) took a bullet for his father Luscious (Terrence Howard) in the last 15 minutes, after Freda Gatz (Bre-Z) found out that Luscious was responsible for her father’s death.
What’s making headline’s is a tweet that Smollett sent out after the episode ended.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time w/ @EmpireFOX. I love you all. Truth. Time 2 make a record & some movies. #Empire ?”
The tweet left fans believing that Smollett’s character will die in next week’s finale, however, in the description of next week’s season finale on Fox’s website, Jamal is set to make an appearance.
“After a life-changing experience, Jamal refuses to make music until his family ends its seemingly endless cycle of violence and fighting,” the site says.
Will you still watch if Jussie leaves?
