Season 2 of FOX’s hit show Scream Queens premiered on September 20, 2016. There have been 4 episodes since then, all action-packed and full of the very things that made viewers love the show during season 1.
If you’ve been living under a rock, or just haven’t had time to watch the show, here’s everything you’ve missed so far:
During season 1, the show was all about a group of girls in a sorority, called Kappa Kappa Tau, at Wallace University. Throughout the season, the sorority is “plagued by a serial killer, who uses the university’s Red Devil mascot as a disguise.”
Although many of the main characters from the first season are in season 2, the show now takes place in a hospital recently acquired by Cathy Munsch, who was the former dean of Wallace University. She allows the Chanels (which consists of Chanel and two other girls also called Chanel) and Zayday to work there, training to be physicians.
This hospital has, of course, a murderous history. In 1985, the hospital staff held a party, with the head doctor dressed up as a sort of green version of the Red Devil from last season. He was forced to leave the party to go help an ill man, but because the man was going to die soon, he threw the body in a swamp near the hospital.
Dean Munsch wants this hospital to be a place where the “incurable can be cured.” The first patient, Catherine Hobart, has what the doctors call “werewolfism,” meaning that she has hair all over her body.
Chanel takes it upon herself to cure this woman, and her “werewolfism” is cured. However, it wouldn’t be Scream Queens if something horrific didn’t happen.
Chanel Number 5 is tasked with bathing Catherine in the hydrotherapy tanks. They both wind up locked in their tanks, and someone dressed as the green version of the Red Devil, also known as the Green Meanie, comes and chops the head off of werewolf girl.
This episode introduces two new patients. The first one is Tyler, who has neurofibromatosis type 1, which causes “tumor-like growths all over his face and body.”
Although Tyler was seen as a potential love interest for Chanel Number 5, he ends up being killed by the Green Meanie. He was going into surgery to remove all the warts on his body, but the Green Meanie uses the laser machine to kill him.
The next patient is Randall, who is a friend of Chad Radwell, one of the original characters from season 1. Randall has “Jumping Frenchmen of Maine disease, which “entails an exaggerated startle reflex which may be described as an uncontrollable “jump”; individuals with this condition can exhibit sudden movements in all parts of the body.”
With the return of Chad Radwell in season 2, viewers were excited to see how he would handle the fact that Chanel had moved on with the head doctor, Dr. Brock Holt. Chad challenges him to a game of squash, where he finds out about Dr. Brock Holt’s strange hand (more on this later).
Meanwhile, Zayday and Chamberlain research the Green Meanie and find out about a hospital massacre in 1986, in which the entire staff was murdered by someone in a Green Meanie disguise.
Zayday also figures out why Dean Munsch opened the hospital. She had accidentally eaten flesh in New Guinea, and now has an incurable disease called Kuru disease. She opened the hospital in the hopes that they could find a cure for her.
Chad figures out that Dr. Brock’s hand was cut off, and he had it replaced with someone else’s hand. It just so happens that the person whose hand he has now was a serial killer.
With the murders continuing at the hospital, including the murder of Randall, the Chanels and Dean Munsch decided to go visit an old friend (or foe) from season 1, Hester. Hester tells them that someone in Florida would be able to help them uncover what is going on at the hospital.
The Chanels, Zayday, Denise and Munsch all head to Florida, where a man named Lynn tells them he became a millionaire by staying quiet about what happened at the hospital in 1986. He tells them he is being threatened by someone who says they will murder him.
Chad is still trying to win back the affection of Chanel, saying he will propose to her, and she agrees to marry him.
There is another new patient at the hospital, but after she is cured and is being taken out of the hospital by Zayday and Chamberlain, the Green Meanie shows up and beheads the poor woman. The strangest thing about this murder was that the Green Meanie refused to hurt Zayday, but injured Chamberlain.
Later in the episode, Chanel and Chad have their wedding, except Chad is a no show. It wasn’t because he didn’t want to marry her, it’s actually because he was killed. His corpse came through the
ceiling at the wedding and almost hit Chanel.
Dean Munsch and Denise again visit Hester, who is now living in the hospital basement, for more answers about the killer. Shocker, she doesn’t tell them anything.
Chanel hosts her annual “Chanel-o-ween” to help her shake her grief over losing Chad. It doesn’t help, especially because she learns that Chad “left all of his money to Dean Munsch and the C.U.R.E. program. Suspiciously, Chad changed his will to reflect this decision the same day that he was murdered.”
Dr. Holt creates a tonic to help the mysterious rashes Chanel has covering her body, but wakes up the next morning completely blue.
The hospital decides to host a Halloween party, and Denise winds up hearing a strange noise, and goes to investigate. She runs into the one and only Green Meanie, but she doesn’t die.
Chanel runs into a guest dressed as Ivanka Trump, and she can’t figure out who it is. The person turns out to be Hester, and she chases Chanel down the hallway and winds up slashing her in the thigh with a pole.
A huge group of people come in who are suffering from bowel issues, and Dr. Holt immediately helps them. Chanel Number 5 tries to help the patients, but Hester appears in her Ivanka Trump costume, taunting her, while the Green Meanie stabs Chanel Number 5 in the back. Denise finds her, but winds up getting attacked by the Green Meanie as well.
