SCREAM QUEENS Recap: Rapunzel, Rapunzel

Editor’s Note: This post contains spoilers for Scream Queens. Proceed with caution if you’re not caught up. Seriously. 

Just when things were staring to drag a bit in Scream Queens, we were hit with a blast from the past, murder, and the reveal of the third Green Meanie! Of course, there was also a lot of relationship drama, amazing costumes, and more sleuthing. There’s a lot to cover, so let’s dig in.

When the cast of Scream Queens‘ second season was revealed, Skyler Samuels (who played Grace Gardner in season one) was nowhere to be seen. It wasn’t until last night’s episode, “Rapunzel, Rapunzel” that the characters even mentioned her. And boy, did they mention her. But the “blast from the past” I mentioned in the intro wasn’t Grace; it was her father, Wes!

During the episode, we learned that following the conclusion of season one, Wes and Dean Munsch had a serious fling. Serious as in they were shacking up in the woods. There was beer-brewing, lovemaking, and a lot of thinking about the whole situation on Munsch’s part. They eventually split…that is, until Wes showed up as a patient at the C.U.R.E. Institute because of a hairball stuck in his stomach thanks to a nasty habit he developed. Thankfully, Doctor Cascade was able to remove the hairball.With that out of the way, Wes was ready to go back for seconds with Dean Munsch.

Meanwhile, Zayday fell back into the fold after her absence last week. All of the novice detective work she did with Chamberlain really bonded the pair… and she wanted nothing to do with it. After receiving a barrage of text messages from Chamberlain, Zayday distracted herself with Instagram and Snapchat, as one does. At the end of the day, she decided to keep looking around with him to get to the bottom of the Green Meanie mystery.

Putting her detective skills to work, Zayday decided to team up with Chamberlain to set a trap for the killer. Knowing full well how recognizable the unique Meanie costume is, the duo want to find a way to grab a piece of the cloth for identification purposes. As Zayday prepared for a bath, the Green Meanie took the bait and showed up, not knowing that Zayday was about to hit him with a taser gun. When Chamberlain showed up to take a crack at the killer, he (or she) got away, but not without Zaday grabbing a piece of the costume. Now they’ve got an official, real-life clue!

Before we discuss where that clue led them, let’s take a breather to talk about Chanel. The age gap between Chanel and Doctor Holt is starting to weigh on her, especially after his reaction to her favorite TV show being Boy Meets World instead of M*A*S*H. To sort things out, Chanel and Hester plan an epic “greatest generation” party for Holt, featuring things they thought were representative of his era and tastes. Sadly, Shirley Temple was a bit too far back, which ended up offending him. Oh boy.

Now back to the good stuff. After grabbing a bit of the Green Meanie costume, Zayday and Chamberlain narrowed their search down. They learned that two costumes were bought by who they think is Jane, and another was bought by a man. After confirming her assumption, Zayday learned that Jane did in fact buy two costumes, while the other was purchased by her brother along with the direction to kill anyone who tried to make things work in the hospital. Much like last season, Zayday also ended up drugged and trapped in the house.

Meanwhile, Chamberlain, who was still at the hospital, discovered that the very same green material found in the costume was found in one of Wes’ hairballs. Finally! Wes’ creepy vibe has been validated. He is the other Green Meanie, completing the terrible trifecta with Doctor Cascade and Nurse Hoeffel. What a group!

When Chamberlain went to confront Wes, he wound up dead (no surprise there) because he can’t have the truth get out. According to the conversation, Wes revealed that the reason behind his murder spree was because he blamed Chanel and the girls for messing Grace up so much that she had to go to a mental facility. The plot thickens!

What do you think will happen next week? As a reminder, there are only two episodes left!
