Empire's Ghost Threesome Sex Scene Reactions

There Was a Threesome With a Ghost on Empire, and the Internet Can't Handle It

Empire is back for its third season, and although the show is known for its drama, surprise guest stars, and killer Cookie-isms, it decided to push the envelope even further in Wednesday night's fourth episode. At the beginning of "Cupid Kills," Lucious and Andre desperately try to woo Nessa back to their company with a record deal after Shyne creates a bidding war between different record companies over her singing career. It's immediately clear that Andre and Nessa have serious chemistry after they lock eyes for the first time, which is basically Empire code for, "Yeah, these two are gonna bang soon." And bang they do. By the end of the episode, Andre and Nessa decide to defuse the tension with sex on his desk, but Andre pauses midthrust because of an unexpected visitor: his late wife, Rhonda.

As anyone who watched season three's premiere knows, Rhonda is the one who falls to her death from a balcony. Since then, Andre has been having visions of Ghost Rhonda everywhere he goes. Despite the fact that she's rotting in the ground somewhere (haha, JK, Empire didn't even bother writing in a funeral for poor Rhonda — is she still at the morgue? Does Thirsty Rawlings have her locked away for safekeeping somewhere?), Rhonda appears beside Andre and cheers him on. In a move reminiscent of Izzie and Denny's bizarre ghost sex in Grey's Anatomy, she even joins in by pushing Andre's head toward Nessa and licking his back. Although some fans thought the scene was hot, most were totally shocked (as were we).

Where is Empire going to go from here? Lucious was referred to as "Lucifer Lyon" in that same episode, so maybe that's a clue we'll get some human-on-devil sex next.
