Several shocking reveals were the centerpiece of Scream Queens 2×06, including one related to the Green Meanie. Yes, this episode unmasked one of the killers in a splendid fashion! My favorite thing about this season has been the slow burn of the unraveling mystery, and Scream Queens 2×06 didn’t disappoint.
Here are 10 of the craziest, funniest, and most gasp-worthy moments from Scream Queens 2×06.
1. Chanel’s slogan for the blood drive.
“We’ve lost a lot of blood. So donate yours.”
2. Agatha Bean’s… SISTER?!
That’s right, Nurse Hoffel is actually the sister of that sorority house maid from season 1 who met with an unfortunate fryer incident. I have to say I didn’t see that one coming! It was a nice way to further push Kirstie Alley’s Ingrid Hoffel into the fray.
3. When Munsch flirts with Dr. Holt in front of Chanel.
“Can you please stop flirting with Dr. Brock as if he had sex with you for any reason other than the fact that he was sad about me and you were the closest semi-damp orifice?”
4. What Dr. Brock Holt said after advising Chanel to get tested for STDs.
“I promise I wouldn’t make you go through all this if I didn’t really like you. I mean… this is a compliment. I mean, if I didn’t have feelings for you, I’d just strap on three condoms and wish for the best, but with you, I’d like to try two. And eventually, maybe in time, just one.”
5. Chanel’s shock at her STD diagnosis.
6. The blood drive chart battle.
Seeing Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts slow-motion battling over a blood drive chart to insanely dramatic operatic music is something I didn’t know I needed in my life.
7. The Blurred Lines Cure.
Have truer words ever been spoken about Blurred Lines? In Scream Queens 2×06, Lea Michele perfectly expressed how 99% of the earth’s population feels about that song.
“When you heard that song for the first time and you were like ‘I could listen to this song over and over again and never get sick of it’ and three months later you’re like, ‘I’d rather marry Robin Thicke than ever have to listen to this awful song ever again!'”
8. Green Meanie unmasked!
So, Green Meanie No. 1 is Cassidy Cascade, and now Hoffel wants to be the brains behind his brawn. The devilish unmasking hints at something of a motive, even if not all is revealed. As shown last episode, Cassidy is the baby in the belly from the ’80s whose identity sleuth Zayday is trying to figure out.
…But Cassidy isn’t the only one going around killing folks. Who is killer No. 2? My money is on Dr. Holt, but how cool would it be if it was actually Wes, bringing the show full circle back to season 1? I’ve been waiting for a Grace or Wes appearance (or even mention) for a while, and I have to assume that the total neglect of these two season 1 main players must be intentional.
9. Chamberlain’s reaction to seeing Hester out and about.
“Oh, hey! You’re Hester, right? The girl who murdered a bunch of folks and was locked in a cage downstairs but then they let you out for some reason and now you sort of work here?!”
10. Munsch’s prediction.
“You know, at some point, this swamp is gonna be like 90% dead bodies.”
So, another week (and another Chanel) down. I kind of wanted to see a trip to Blood Island after its ridiculous description, but I had a feeling that wouldn’t really pan out. Seems like we’re up to a whopping three Green Meanies now, which is on par with season 1’s three Red Devils! With only another 4 episodes to go after Scream Queens 2×06, I’m still rooting for a season 3!
Tune into FOX next Tuesday at 9/8c to find out what happens next!
