Ice cream banana plant appears to be flowering...what now?

1. I live near 7. I purchased this plant last spring. My plants live outside in the summer and spend the cooler months inside with supplemental grow lights. This potted ice cream banana will need to be moved into my foyer...should I do it right now or leave it outside for the next few weeks?

2. I am hoping that with very careful/cautious/sloooooow movement we can get this plant into the house without a problem as we did last year. I know the plant will continue to grow BUT I am wondering about the spring...first, the growing will slow, even with the supplemental you think this banana has a shot at producing fruit as it would in a warmer zone under these conditions? And if so, will I be able to move it back outside in the late spring of 2017 or is this plant stuck inside for the duration.

3. I am beyond excited about this plant and the fact that it is producing fruit and I realize that purchasing this size plant in my growing zone was perhaps an exercise in poor judgement but at this point I refuse to be defeated (I get a lot of abuse from family members over the size of this banana plant that seems to do nothing but grow and reproduce! I have banana plants everywhere and am looking forward to getting some fruit!).
