Default Ae Ae flower

After removing the brown mush that the frost created I found this flag leaf and a flower emerging. This plant is only about 7 feet of spindly pseudo stem and has no leaves now. I'm worried that the plant has not grown any pups yet and now it has to power a flower bud! What to do? Cut it down and hope for pups or wait til spring and see what happens?

Here is a couple pics of my weather beaten Ae Ae.
