A show that will have you on the edge of your seat, laughing in stupidity, and begging for more is ‘Scream Queens.’ ‘Scream Queens’ was created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan and is a hit comedy-horror TV series premiering on FOX. The creators of ‘Glee’ and ‘American Horror Story’ have also created a thrilling whodunnit show for young teens and adults. It has received many high acclaims in its first and second seasons of airing and is a favorite in many high schoolers’ household.

Season 2 of Scream Queens is a hit for sure and is making viewers come back for more content. So much has happened from season 1 to season 2 a recap is sure in action.

The season starts out back in a 1985 Halloween party at an old fashioned hospital with a woman and her husband is hurt. A doctor injects something into the husband and instantly kills him. In a green lizard costume, the doctor dumps the body into the swamp and carries on with the party. This is the start of the green lizard costume nicknamed the “Green Meanie.”

Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) later buys the hospital so that she can create an environment safe for people who have troubling diseases that cannot be cured. Munsch hires medical students Zayday Williams (Keke Palmer)  and the Chanels (Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin, and Billie Lourd) as interns. She also hires two doctors, Dr. Cassie (Taylor Lautner) and Dr. Brock (John Stamos) who will assist her in curing the incurable. She also hires Detective Hemphill (Niecy Nash) to look at the murders. This hospital is named the C.U.R.E. Institute where the “Green Meanie” will haunt and murder each patient cured.

The first patient cured was a Catherine who had “werewolf syndrome” and had hair everywhere on her body. Later that night, the Green Meanie murdered her by slicing her head off while in a bath. Next, the patient was Tyler and had warts all over his body. Instead of being cured, the Green Meanie lasered him to death. After Tyler’s death, the next patient was Sheila who had a very weird disease and was cured. Unfortunately, the Green Meanie sliced her head off as a result.

So far, after curing a patient, the Green Meanie had shown up and murdered every single one of them. Meanwhile, Chanel (Emma Roberts) and Chad (Glen Powell) almost got married, but Chad was murdered at the altar by an unknown suspect. Chanel #5 (Abigail Breslin) is also killed by the Green Meanie as a result of wearing the same costume as the Green Meanie.

Scream Queens is a show adored by millions every week and still creates top notch entertainment. “Scream Queens is one of my favorite shows and has a very cool mystery aspect to it,” as quoted by Emelia Ortiz (9). YLHS students please tune into the last two episodes of the season on November 15 and 22 at 9:00 on FOX.
