Seasons Greetings: Scream Queens Returns
September 30, 2016
Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.
Oh my gauze season two just aired! The world was first introduced to Scream Queens created by the same minds who created American Horror Story and Glee last September. Scream Queens is a cross between both Glee and American Horror Story, its funny and scary at the same time. The first season had a killer cast with members like Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, Jamie Lynn Curtis and Emma Roberts. This season the cast list is just as good with stars like Kristie Alley, John Stamos, and Taylor Lautner. I found the season premiere hilarious!
Season two opened with a flashback to Halloween of 1985. A pregnant worrying wife goes up to the nurse and tells her to help her husband who has COPD. The nurse was hesitant but “gave in.” The doctor and a nurse kill the patent so they don’t miss the Halloween party that happening in the hospital behind them. They throw him in the swamp behind the the hospital. Tales of a monster called the “The Green Meanie” haunt the swamp. Hoping to cover their tracks, the doctor takes his green Halloween cape and ghoulish mask and throws it onto the patient.
Present day (2016), that very hospital which is now called C.U.R.E institute is run by the one and only Cathy Munsch. But what happened to the Chanels? A Netflix documentary exonerated them, their families disowned them, and everyone basically hated them. Hester went to jail and Zayday agreed to work at C.U.R.E. institute after Munsch offered to pay for medical school. Doctor Brock Holt played by John Stamos loves to brag about the fact he went to Harvard University. Zayday felt the hospital needed more woman staff and thats when Dean Munsch went to the Chanels. The Chanels agree to work at the hospital as medical students. Chanel makes a new enemy, Dr. Ingrid Hoffel (Kristie Alley) who is Munsch’s right hand man. Everyone’s first job is to try and cure an “incurable” patient, Catherine who looks like a werewolf. Zayday comes up with an idea to help cure Catherine, while the Chanels do what they do best, make fun of Catherine. Munsch finds out and puts them on academic probation. Chanel gives up her dreams of becoming the next Diane Sawyer and realizes that her and the Chanel’s can become special medical correspondents for Fox News, and have a their own tv show. Feeling like they have to beat Zayday and get back on good terms with Dean Munsch, the Chanel’s pull an all nighter to find a cure for Catherine. Chanel uses her “charm” with Dr. Brock Holt and together they figure out a cure.
Barging into the operating room where the other staff members are, Chanel and Dr. Brock Holt tell them what they figured out. Chanel #3 who is known for always wearing earmuffs, has them on in the operating room but has gloves covering the muff part. I found that super funny. Catherine was cured but all her hair was gone, therefore the Chanel’s give her a makeover. Catherine was head over heels with her new look. Dean Munsch is so happy with their work she lifts the Chanel’s academic probation, but Chanel #5 is left to work the night shift. Chanel #5 decides to do hydrotherapy with Catherine. Locked in the tubs, hopeless the new killer comes in. Holding a sword, wearing that same green cape and mask from 1985 the new killer attacks. Right in front of Chanel #5 the killer chops Catherine’s head off and it rolls onto Chanel #5’s tub and she is left screaming.
Overall, I loved the episode and I look forward to the rest of the season. My predictions are that whoever is the new killer is the baby of the worrying wife from back in 1985. Based off the promo’s I know Hester is coming back and I am excited to see how that plays out. I think John, Kristie and Taylor are an amazing addition to the cast. Scream Queens airs every Tuesday night at 9pm on Fox.
