Silver succulents - what on earth???

Black Prince reproducing
Hi! I have two silver succulents are very strange. They're supposed to be the same plant, and were labeled the same when I bought them.
I thought they'd spread to a carpet like hens and chicks, but instead, they've grown strange flowers and branches. One has grown a stalk; the other has three thin shoots.
What is this? Is it a type of Echeveria? will it spread like hens and chicks? If not, what do I do with it? How big will it get???
Also - I have what I thought was a "Black Prince" which seems to be growing the same kind of offshoots from inside the plant, not babies on the outside. Can I pluck them out and plant them elswhere?
What will both these plants look like later on?
