As to who was the lady in the red-soled shoes that pushed Rhonda down the stairs that caused her to lose Dre’s (Tre Byers)baby, Empire showrunner Ilene Chaiken told Deadline: “That’s not going to be left open. It will be resolved by the end of the season, but it’s not easily resolved. It’s not quickly resolved. It’s not as evident as it seems.” Chaiken also said in the second part of season two, “There are certainly babies on the horizon.” But from who is the question!
