Welp everybody, it looks like we’ve had another eventful week in the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority house. There was gore, chainsaws, and a ton of moments that made me shamelessly laugh out loud. Sure, Scream Queens is ridiculous—but it’s supposed to be. It’s definitely one of those shows you’ll either love or hate depending on whether or not the campy humor is your style. There was a ton of good stuff that went down this week, so let’s dig in.
With a killer (or two) on the loose, the Kappa clan spent most of the episode seriously freaked out, hunting down the Red Devil, and pointing fingers. They’ve resorted to carrying around taser guns—which Grace accidentally used to shoot an innocent (in a Red Devil costume)—and even, in Zayday’s case, stowing a chainsaw under their beds. As the bodies continued to pile up, they’ve each formulated their own theories about who may be involved. The great thing is: it could be anyone.
There are a few obvious options. Boone’s proven to clearly be involved in some capacity. But the bickering Chanels (1 and 5 to be exact) were also looking pretty suspicious last night. While she was dead set on accusing Pete last week, Grace felt pretty certain that Chanel’s boyfriend (and everyone else’s, apparently) Chad could be a prime suspect. Jamie Lee Curtis’ Dean Munsch—and Grace’s father—are also pretty suspicious. The one that got me however, was Denise’s belief that Zayday was the killer. She brought up several pieces of evidence including a CD from the Best Buy her recently murdered friend used to patrol, the chainsaw she’s been keeping under her bed, and suspicious tweets to the official account of a show called Getting Away With Murder. I hadn’t really considered Zayday an option, but Denise’s belief that the killer has an accomplice is dead on.
Anyways, on top of the characters looking for suspects, we got to see Chanel transform the once neck-brace wearing Hester into a true beauty worthy of the Chanel name. In fact, she’s been officially redubbed Chanel No. 6. Sure, the Queen C took on the project in an attempt to win back her shallow boyfriend, but it was still fun to see. Plus the pained look on Hester’s face as she insisted she’s never been happier—despite feeling like she was going to pass out—was fun enough on its own. With Chanel No. 2’s supposed “dead” body missing, Chanel No. 5’s belief that the head honcho is a “bitch who deserves what’s coming,” and Chanel No. 3’s new connection to both Charles Manson (WAT) and Jeanna, Chanel numero uno is running out of allies in her house of rejects.
Elsewhere, Grace’s father Wes not only kept tabs on his daughter via GPS tracking, but also switched to teaching a genre he’s not even well-versed in order to get closer to his daughter. It’s hard to decide which is creepier—especially when you consider the fact that the red devil mysteriously started wielding a chainsaw after watching The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in class. He also went on a weird triple date with Gigi and Dean Munsch.
With Boone’s death ruled a suicide, the Dean told students that they needed to put the rumor that there’s a serial killer on the loose to rest, taking a page out of the book of Timberlake and urging the crowd to “take back the night.” While the girls were busy working towards this in their own ways, the Dicky Dollar Club—led by Chad—was determined to get hyped up on steroids, call the Red Devil out of his hiding place, and (of course) hit a ton of stuff with wooden bats to the tune of The Backstreet Boys’ classic tune “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” all while wearing white from head to toe.
Unfortunately for the boys however, not one, but TWO Red Devils showed up to create a bloody mess—let’s just say things got gory. Also, after telling students to dismiss the idea of murder, Dean Munsch replaced the Red Devil mascot with a cheeky soft-serve ice cream cone called Coney. We were faked out a bit when we got to see how much of a loner named Aaron Coen loved being the man in the cone, until—of course—the Red Devil violently took him down. I’m sightly hoping to see a homicidal ice cream cone on campus in the near future. I mean, the killer(s) would have to change their disguise at some point during their bloody rampage to avoid being caught, right?
Since a Red Devil’s work is clearly never done, he (or she) also made another appearance at the Kappa house. With Dean Munsch and Gigi taking up residence in the house during the week, the difficulty that comes with living with each other drove Gigi to the downstairs couch for some peaceful shuteye. I guess I would probably have a hard time sleeping in the same room as a so-called “white noise” machine that sounds like angry baboons, whale distress calls, and the slasher movie theme rolled into one.
Anyways, once Gigi decided to close her eyes for a few minutes, the Red Devil showed up like clockwork, and threatened her life with a chainsaw. When Wes (who was creepily sitting out in his car nearby) heard her scream, he raced in and they fought the mystery person. But, as soon as they checked behind the couch, he/she was gone. When Munsch came down to see what all of the commotion was, Wes pointed his finger at her and stated that she was the murderer.
