Mr Murdoch's reaction to the test that will reveal if Xolile is carrying Mthunzi's child was quite puzzling. He found it hilarious, but before letting his prisoners in on the joke, he collapsed and could be dead.
Xolile and Mthunzi had a surprising and open moment in which it almost looked like Mthunzi could have real feelings for his wife.
He mentioned a plan that could save Xolile's life but would end the baby's.
Xolile doesn't want to do that, but it's not for certain that she'll have to do anything - her child could be Romeo's.
Mr Murdoch was about to reveal whether Mthunzi is the father of Xolile's baby, but he found the result so funny that he started laughing uncontrollably.
Soon laughter turned into wheezing and Mr Murdoch collapsed on the floor - presumably dead.
Fans aren't sure what to expect, but they'd be very disappointed if the man really did pass away, they love his character.
As usual, Scandal! viewers took to social media to discuss the latest episode, and Briefly.co.za gathered some of the comments.
