They’re baaaa-ack. ‘Scream Queens’ returned on Sept. 20 and it all kicked off with a flashback of Halloween in 1985, where we met a pregnant woman just trying to save her husband. Good luck with that, lady.
Unfortunately for her, doctor Jerry O’Connell (dressed as a green devil, duh!) and his friend, Laura Bell Bundy, were more annoyed they were pulled away from the party, than concerned with the sick man. So, they just killed him instead leaving the pregnant woman alone. So there’s that.
Speaking of, in the present day (three years after last season), Dean Munsch is now the famous Doctor Dean Cathy Munsch ran the CURE institute, which she funded fully on her own to search for cures for the incurable diseases, you know like “werewolf disease.” Yes, that’s what one patient (Cecily Strong) came in with.
We also met the new doctors — Dr. Cascade (Taylor Lautner) and Dr. Holt (John Stamos). Cascade “ran cold,” you know, the opposite of Taylor’s werewolf character in Twilight. (If he’s a vampire, count me out!) As for Dr. Holt, well he has a prothetic hand as he lost his in a Super Bowl party accident, then performed surgery separating the Hemsworth brothers. Yes, really. However, we later find out that that hand may just have a mind of its own. (Idle Hands anyone?)
As the for the Chanels, they had been living in hell since they were framed and the world found out how horrible they were. Luckily, Zayday (Keke Palmer) was now in medical school and working at the hospital so she asked Munsch to bring on some ladies — cue the Chanels! They proved how great they were by finding the cure for werewolf lady first, by flirting with Holt, duh. In the end, Abagail Breslin‘s number five had night duty and while soaking in a bath alongside werewolf girl, the green devil entered and killed the now-cured patient.
Side note: Chanel’s not really the HBIC anymore, now that Kirstie Alley is there, working at the hospital and is totally running things. She fits in well to my theories following the premiere. (Not all mine, but some of my trusty coworkers’ as well.) Could she be Laura Bell Bundy’s character all grown up? Could a cold Dr. Cascade be that baby? And could Dr. Holt be Jerry O’Connell, or even Jerry’s son? That last one would be equally amazing, seeing as how Jerry is now married to John’s ex, Rebecca Romijn.
HollywoodLifers, what’d you think of the premiere? How does it hold up compared to season one? Let us know.
