Andre is finally telling his family about his cancer diagnosis.
In an exclusive clip from Wednesday’s episode of Empire, “Without All Remedy,” the Lyons convene to hear the bad news, and all quickly declare that they’re putting everything else aside to help Andre (Trai Byers) get better — but it’s all too much for him.
“Stop!” declares the eldest Lyon son. “See, this is exactly why I didn’t want to tell anyone that I was sick.” He then proceeds to storm out of the room.
Andre sounds confident about his chances at survival, but we’ve already seen him flatlining in a flash-forward, meaning he could very likely be the person in that mysterious coffin.
“There are hints, and fingers are pointed, and you can get a feeling all throughout the back nine [episodes], and the question is finally answered in the finale,” showrunner Brett Mahoney recently told EW of the identity of the soon-to-be dead character.
Empire airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox. Watch the clip above.
