The sudsy drama picks up tonight on television’s hottest show, Empire (9PMET/8PMCST)!  The Fox series from creator Lee Daniels has been breaking all total audience and viewers demo records over the last five weeks.  And last Wednesday, viewers learned that there is a mysterious woman in Jamal’s past (Jussie Smollett) … who claims he fathered her child! But on tonight’s all-new episode this plot even gets juicier!

The woman named Olivia (Raven-Symone) was married to Jamal! Of course, fans of the series have been rooting for Jamal, the gay son of hip-hop mogul Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), to rise above all the prejudice thrown at him,have a successful music career, take control of the empire, and have a love life with his beau Michael (Rafael de la Fuente), but this twist offers some new perspective!

Jussie Smollett, who has been one of the breakout stars of Empire, weighs-in on the plot twist with TV Guide.  He related: “They were indeed married. It was all just a sham of a wedding. It certainly wasn’t something that Jamal’s heart was completely in, but it was what he felt that he needed to do and another way that Lucious handled the puppeteering of Jamal early on in his life.”

As to how Michael will react to Olivia’s shocking emergence into Jamal’s life, Smollett previewed, “I think it definitely hurts Michael to hear that, but I also think it hurts Jamal to say that.  He could have said, ‘There’s no girl’ or ‘No, I’m not dating a girl right now.’ He could have said anything. … I think it was just this cluster-beep of emotion that goes through when asked a question like that — that’s so personal even when you’re expecting for that question to be asked.”

So, what do you think about the plot twist that has Jamal once married to Olivia?  Do you think he fathered her child? Share your thoughts below!

Can’t wait for tonight! If it was a marriage sham, then did they sleep together? If they didn’t, then the kid isn’t hers natch, but if they did, who knows? But way has she waited so long to come forward?

Why do soaps think every gay man sleeps with a woman at least once in his life?

Seriously, they never reveal straight guys to have a secret gay relationship in their past.

But when addressing the company staff on some changes within the structure of the organization and his plans, he is stunned when none other than Tracy (Amanda Detmer), that’s previously referred to and known as “White Tracy’” (due to her crack addiction), shows up with a soapy bombshell during the meeting.

The mother of Andre’s deceased half-brother, Jeff Kingsley saunters in and announces, “I’m Empire’s newest co-owner!”   And with that, season six begins its arc with a battle for control that will be front and center.

Tracy wants payback and has an ax to grind.  In the season 5 finale, she told the Lyon clan that her decision to donate her son’s heart to save Andre would come with strings attached, but did anyone expect she would go this far?  Yup!  Watch the teaser below for Tuesday’s night’s first episode of the  final season.

Meanwhile, the season six key art featuring series stars: Taraji P Henson (Cookie) and Terrence Howard  (Luscious) in the same position as the famous scene in the motion picture Titanic has with it the saying “Rule to the end”.   Who will be left standing when the series comes to its exciting and emotional conclusion?
