Scream Queens is back, Idiot Hookers!

Scream Queens season 2 began much like season 1, with a flashback to begin the killer mystery. This time is a flashback to a hospital Halloween party, where a nurse and a doctors evening is interrupted by a women begging them to help her husband – who is a patient in need of medical assistance. They reluctantly agree to help, but instead of performing the procedure as they promised, they would rather return to the party and so they dump the guy in a swamp instead (because …of course!?). Just in case anyone saw them, the doctor also dumps his green devil costume in the swamp so he cannot be identified.

Back in the present day, the hospital is now under new ownership, owned by none other than Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis), now Doctor Munsch. Since last season, Munsch has become famous for ‘New New Feminism’ and to maintain her now hero-status she purchased the hospital to ‘cure the incurable’.

We then get a glimpse at a Netflix documentary which should have been called ‘Making a Kappa Kappa Murderer’. Anyway it reveals the Chanel’s have been exonerated as Hester (Lea Michelle) was coaxed into a confession by Officer Denise Hemphill (Niecy Nash), now Special Agent for the FBI.

Although they have been exonerated, the Chanel’s are considered pariahs and without their families riches they have fallen on hard times and are forced to work until Munsch recruits them as medical students. Munsch has also recruited Zayday (Keke Palmer) and hot doctors Dr. Brock Holt (John Stamos) and Dr. Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner). Holt is the recipient of the first successful hand transplant after losing his hand in a bloody garbage disposal accident, and the hand seems to have some strangley-tendencies.

scream-queens-brock-holt-and-chanelIt seems the Chanel’s may have met their match, with the introduction of the Chanel’s new nemesis, nurse Ingrid Hoffel (Kirstie Alley). In confrontation with the Chanel’s she threatened to eat them for lunch.

The first patient at the hospital is SNL’s Cecily Strong, who suffers from extreme hair growth that makes her look like a werewolf. The Chanel’s want to become TV doctors and so plan to outshine Zayday by finding a cure for the werewolf lady. After flirting with Holt, they realise food was causing high testosterone levels which led to the extreme hair growth. Zayday did not look happy when Chanel showed her up.

The episode ends with Chanel No.5 and the now hairless werewolf women locked in medical baths, the new killer takes this opportunity to behead the hairless werewolf and potentially Chanel No.5, we will have to wait until next episode to find out.

Scream Queens came back with plenty of screams and even more crazy scenarios, the show proved it can get more ridiculous and still remain entertaining. My only criticism of this episode was it lacked suspense, we’re use to being constantly on edge with this show, but that was probably due to the killer only making an appearance at the end. However, to their credit this was because they spent time setting up plenty of mysteries to uncover in the season ahead.

Some of the many questions the episode left us with; Who does Holt’s hand belong to? Why is Cassidy so cold? What’s Munsch’s plan with the Chanel’s? Would they really kill off Chanel No.5? And obviously, Who is the new killer?

Let us know what you thought of the episode. Do you think you already know who the killer is?
