“I ask you to reunite one legendary rock and roll outfit so guys will show up to my patch and you’re all like aww some guy died. I’m over it!” - Chanel Oberlin

Part 2 of the two-part Halloween themed episodes aired last night. Episode 5 of Scream Queens paid homage to a few classic horror film scenes and a couple of TV shows. Let’s dig deep and see what we unearth!

ABANDON ALL HOPE, YE WHO ENTER HERE!
SPOILERS RESIDE INSIDE!!!

Spoiler Light Recap

It is Chanel-O-Ween night and Chanel’s party/concert/fundraiser for hairy tongue syndrome is nigh. It is also cancelled since Dean Munsch has declared the campus closed and a curfew is set in place. Chad Radwell delivers a rousing speech about JFK, slutty costumes, and half naked dudes. Chanel #5 (Abigail Breslin) rebels against the Chanel-tatorship because she doesn’t want to dress as Mary Todd Lincoln in Chanel’s widows of assassinated presidents themed gaggle. MUCH MEAN GIRLS & QUEEN BEES POLITICS AND DOUBLE-CROSSING ENSUE. Chanel #6 (nee Esther, nee Neck-brace) continues her quest to become the Dick Chaney of KKT. Dean Munsch and Denise Hemphill bond over their shared flings with Chradwell.

Grace, Pete, Gigi, Lame Cool Professor Dad, and Denise Hemphill investigate the case of the missing Zayday. Through hand-waving and computer savvy they locate the location of Zayday’s cell and enter the Red Devils’ lair. Zayday makes a triumphant return to KKT and the election for KKT president is in full swing.

RANDOM SPECULATION

I believe the Red Devil in this episode was Chradwell. Being a cad, he wants to sleep with the female victims before he kills them. Hence why he tried to wine and dine Zayday instead of killing her. Gigi of course knows the Red Devil(s) and is working with them. Boone is still MIA, but he is also working with the Red Devil(s). How does it all fit together? Who flerking knows.

I am still of the opinion that nearly everyone on this show will have worn the Red Devil costume and killed at least one other person on this show. Like Clue.
