Scream Queens 2×08 featured a crazy reveal, a major character death, and Dean Munsch working out to a Richard Simmons video. In other words, this week’s episode was one of the best yet, and helped set the stage for the final two episodes of the season.
Here are 10 of the craziest, funniest, and most gasp-worthy moments from Scream Queens 2×08.
1. The giant, bloody hairball.
So, inside of Wes’ stomach was a massive bloody hairball. Ew. I don’t know what was nastier – seeing the bloody hairball itself, or seeing the flashback in which Wes pulls out his own hair and eats it. Take your pick.
2. Dean Munsch reminiscing about her sex life with Wes.
“I really love that big bushy head of hair… I used to get naked and put him in a headlock between my thighs and then look in the mirror and try to pretend I was a porn star from the 1970s.”
3. Chanel’s response when Dr. Brock name-drops the TV show M*A*S*H*.
“Mash? Oh, like mashed potatoes?”
4. Chanel trying to bridge the age gap between herself and Dr. Brock.
“I’m sorry, I’m trying. I mean, I listened to the oldies station all day… I learned about Blink 182 and Smash Mouth and Chumbawumba…”
5. Surprise, bitch!
Zayday and Chamberlain teaming up to take on the Green Meanie was one of the most suspenseful and fun scenes of the season so far, and felt just intense enough to satiate my appetite. I’m still waiting for a creepy hospital chase scene, though.
6. Munsch’s wise words to Chanel about Dr. Brock.
“You see, men like Brock seem to be attracted to women who can do long division. And who have a sex swing in their bedrooms. Enjoy it while it lasts.”
7. The information Zayday gets from the super creepy costume-maker.
“I remember the year because that was the year Karate Kid II came out. I got a handy in the theater.
The next one was a few months ago. I remember that one because I went to try this new Italian place in town, and I got a handy under the table.
The last one was just a few weeks ago. I don’t remember any handies associated with that one.”
8. When Zayday confronts Jane with logic.
“Why are you trying to bring logic into this conversation? You do realize that we are insane people, right?”
9. Chanel’s party for Brock.
The ridiculous combo of hearing Chanel No. 3 spouting “Extry! Extry!”, Chanel No. 5 tap-dancing and dressed as Shirley Temple, and Hester telling Brock to “gather ’round the wireless” was purely a treasure to behold.
10. A Green Meanie revealed.
So, Grace is in an asylum. Chamberlain is stabbed and appears to be dead. Oh, and Wes is the third Green Meanie. Like Hoffel, Wes wants revenge on the Chanels for essentially ruining his daughter. The twist in Scream Queens 2×08 is just so crazy that it works on every level.
Only two episodes remain, and Scream Queens is on fire! Zayday has been kidnapped again, and Wes is the third Green Meanie! Where do we go from here? Check out Scream Queens 2×09 next Tuesday at 9/8c on FOX to see the penultimate episode of the season!
