After last night's big cliffhanger on "Empire," fans are in their feelings today.  And Jussie Smollett's latest Tweet is making people wonder if he's ever returning to the show. We've got the real deal inside.


Spoiler alert if you missed last night's episode...

Last night on "Empire," Jussie Smollett's character Jamal Lyon was shot!  We're not sure how it'll turn out for him (we may learn his fate on the finale next week), but Jussie's tweet last night had fans believing he wouldn't be returning.  he said:

From the sounds of it, he is seemingly announcing his exit from the show.  Or, he's simply saying he's had a great ride so far and since the cast has wrapped filming for the season, he's using his break before next season to record music and make movies.

He does have a record deal with Columbia, afterall.

Today, Entertainment Weekly reports Smollett is not leaving the show because he indeed remains under contract.  However, his reps nor the show's reps have commented.

Last night saw a huge battle between Jamal and his father Lucious, and it was one for the books.  Jussie said about it:

As for the ratings, Deadline reports:

Although it was the night’s top-rated and most-watched show, the Fox series was even among 18-49s with last week’s second-lowest result ever. Viewership-wise, Empire was up 3% over its May 4 episode.

Next week is the season finale.
