I would have to say wait for a couple of more pods. I myself was actually just going to post a topic pretty much the same as yours as I have the same thing going on here that I just noticed. I have only 1 pod that looks like yours, and the rest are the standard Bhut shape, all on the same plant.

looks like some kind of scorpion to me. wrong shape for ghost pepper. That's good because scorpions taste better anyway in my opinion...

Well, in that case then, I will also take a guess and say there may have been a seed mix-up.
