***WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD***
Well, that was unexpected.
And after a first season that established just how far its characters were willing to push boundaries, the FOX musical drama finally recreated the magic on Wednesday night’s new episode by revealing a twist…
One of the main characters is pregnant!!!
It’s actually Anika who is pregnant with Hakeem’s baby!
Good thing he just dumped her…
Make sure to catch Empire every Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST on FOX to see how this whole pregnancy plot line plays out.
Who knows — maybe Alicia Keys‘ debut next week will stir things up even more!
