It seems like Anika was born with 9 lives! It is impossible to kill her, despite Rhonda’s best efforts on “Empire” season 2 finale. All clues indicate Rhonda’s exit from the show.
‘Empire’ Season 2
Rarely does a TV show leave the audience with a cliffhanger so exciting that the viewers just can’t wait for the next season to begin already! “Empire” has managed to accomplish that and more in its final episode of season 2. Now, the question bugging the minds of the audience is – who will survive in the rooftop brawl between Rhonda and Anika?
Since both actresses playing Rhonda and Anika are rare finds, it seemed natural that the show would want to retain both of them for TRP’s sake. Hence, it could have easily taken the middle ground and ended the cat fight in a tie. But showrunner Ilene Chaiken mentioned in an interview with TVLine that, only one of the two characters will make it to the next season!
“But we love both of these characters and both of these actresses — and it’s hard to think about losing either one of them,” she said. “In this instance, there’s no character motivation to consider: One of them is simply going to win the fight, and the other is likely to be gone. It’s in the hands of the gods, and whoever survives is going to have quite a story.”
‘Empire’ Season 3 Update
This further added fuel to raging speculation of who might beat whom in the fight. Executive producer Sanaa Hamri has indirectly confirmed in an interview with Variety that it is Rhonda who meets her end. According to her, season 3 of “Empire” is going to deal with Andre, who is shaken up after “witnessing a death” that appears to be “deeply affecting him.”
Since Andre had any emotional ties to Anika, this can only mean that Rhonda dies in the brawl between the two!
However, fans still have to wait for the next season for any official confirmation on this news.
