Star Photos from "Showtime"

at .

Star has been a decent fill-in for Empire this past winter, though it has not quite reached the heights of Lee Daniels' original music-fueled soap opera.

While Empire edges out its little sibling show when it comes to compelling characters and banging tunes, one cannot deny that Star has done a lot to entertain throughout its debut season – enough to earn a second season order from Fox. 

In Star Season 1 Episode 11, all of that drama reached a head when Star was smacked across the face by psychopathic boyfriend Hunter.

Hopefully, Star finally realize that while Hunter may be a famous footballer, that doesn't make him worthy of her time – especially when he encourages her to give up her dreams to stay at home in the big house (or rather, cage) that he bought her.

But Star isn't the only one being forced to make big choices in Star's upcoming season finale, airing on Wednesday, March 15 at 9/8c on Fox.

Perhaps most importantly, Alex and Derek must decide what to do about their surprise baby on the way. Will Alex get an abortion, or will she put Big Trouble on hold to become a mom?

Speaking of Big Trouble: the girls must decide whether they should drop deadbeat manager Jahil in order to work with Big Boi. Considering that Jahil just got arrested for Otis' murder, that might not be a very difficult decision. But did Jahil even kill Otis?

And, Cotton has gone ahead and committed some decent-sized crimes in order to get the money for her surgery, but one wonders whether she'll be able to go through with it, or if someone will discover what she's done first. 

Check out these photos from Star Season 1 Episode 12, "Showtime", and let us know what you think is in store for Big Trouble and Co. based on the evidence! And remember, you can always watch Star online via TV Fanatic.

So, Star appears to be wielding some kind of pipe here, and Simone does not look too thrilled about it. Perhaps Star plans on using it on Hunter the next time that psychopath comes near her.

Jahil, out of jail - Star Season 1 Episode 12
The last time we saw Jahil, he was being carted away as the prime suspect in Otis' murder. However, he seems to have weaseled his way out of police custody in time for the final Atlanta Next Fest performance.

3. Rehearsing for Big Boi - Star Season 1 Episode 12

Rehearsing for Big Boi - Star Season 1 Episode 12
Looks like the ladies have taken Big Boi up on his offer to become their new Svengali. Personally, I am pro-ditching Jahil for someone who actually has clout in the music industry. And isn't a suspect for murder.

Well, it looks like Jahil has discovered the girls' treachery. With the way he's eyeing Eva, you know he's particularly hurt by her betrayal. Do you think she tipped off the police in order to get him out of the picture?

5. Reconciliation for Carlotta and Jahil? - Star Season 1 Episode 12

Reconciliation for Carlotta and Jahil? - Star Season 1 Episode 12
Now that Cotton's paternity is out in the open, it makes sense that Carlotta would put aside some of her animosity towards Jahil. But how will she react if and when the girls ditch him for Big Boi?

6. Big Trouble, in trouble again? - Star Season 1 Episode 12

Big Trouble, in trouble again?  - Star Season 1 Episode 12
What do you think Carlotta is telling the girls here? Is she chewing them out for kicking Jahil to the curb after she advised them to remain loyal? Is she congratulating them on their success? Warning them to remain humble? A combination of all three? I vote for the latter.

Lord, it's a calling, these girls coming to me. As much for me as it is for them. And now I be losing them to that Satan called fame.

Carlotta

And you're the best character witness they can find? Well, I'm screwed.
