If you didn’t believe Emma when she first said there’s a new killer on the loose, you do now. I’m looking at you Ms. Lange and Sheriff Acosta.
Emma had to come clean about everything that’s been happening to her lately after Kieran snitched on her to the Sheriff. Sure, he may have done it to protect his girl but she was not pleased because it meant her having to tell the Sheriff everything about the calls, the attack at the school and that creepy barn with the pictures.
The Sheriff, who told Emma that the emails her father was getting from a dead Riley, came from her IP address said he’d look into it. And look into that creepy barn he did. Inside he found a picture of a young Emma standing with an adult whose face is scratched out. The Sheriff calls in Emma’s mom and tells her “it’s worse than we feared,” to which she replies, “impossible.” Look, I don’t really know what they were subtly hinting at here but I’m going to guess that they think the real Brandon James is still alive and pissed that someone killed his daughter last season. If you think about it, it would make sense that Branson was targeting Audrey who “worked” with Piper and eventually killed her and also brought Emma’s real dad to Lakewood.
Elsewhere, Noah was all over the place this week because of his teenage hormones. It seems he patched things up with Audrey, despite her confession about Piper last week. And he was all on board for going to hang out with his lady crush Zoe at some abandoned lake… you know the setting of most horror movies. But Zoe, who is first and foremost a liar and lied about her whereabouts last year when all the murders were happening, was also on a mission to get the recording of Audrey’s confession. When Noah invited her over to his place, she jumped at the occasion and then stole the recording before trying to hook up with the him. But as luck would have it, Noah gets to keep his virginity for another week as Audrey busted through the door unaware that she was about to walk in on some hooking up. As awkward as that was, she was also not LEAVING.
Why? Because MURDER trumps HOOKING UP! Brooke looked to Audrey for help this week in dealing with the Mr. Branson situation. She confessed that she got all “revengey” and tied Branson up at some hotel, leaving him stranded with no escape. When she went back to release him, she was shocked to see an empty hotel room. How the heck did he get out of those Spencer’s handcuffs, she wondered. Of course WE KNOW that he didn’t just slip out of them. Nope… he was ambushed by Ghost Face who chopped his hand off amongst other unpleasant things.
So you can say, Mr. Branson is having a kid of bad week. So is Ms. Lang to be honest. She tried to patch things up with Emma who wasn’t having any of it. We then found out Ms. Lang was personally investigating all of the Lakewood 6 for some unknown reason and well, it didn’t end well for her. She kept telling Emma she was having PTSD and hallucinations until she came face-to-face with Ghost Face herself. As she ran for her life, she stumbled upon Branson in the hallway, who yes, was still alive for like .6 seconds before getting stabbed by Ghost Face. He then came running for Lange, who was thrown down the staircase and unconscious. If it hadn’t been for some rando janitor, who will probably be dead next week, Lang would have been Ghost Face’s next victim. I mean…. not that I think she’ll ever survive this.
As for Emma, she decided to let loose with Kieran’s creepy cousin who I’m still trying to figure out. The episode kicked off with him dancing around a kitchen in sunglasses making toast but it turned hella weird when we realized it wasn’t his house. Later he took Emma to that same house for a “date” except WE saw two dead bodies in the bathtub. Guess who – it’s Eddie the hotel clerk and BRANSON. I guess we’re likely to assume that Eli did it but then suddenly right after he kisses Emma (and she pushes him away), they smell smoke and realize someone lit the house on fire and trapped them inside. And while we thought Branson was dead, his eyes popped open in the tub the minute he smelled smoke. Seriously this dude is like a cat with 9 lives! Will he survive and live to tell his story?

“Scream” Takes Multiple Victims During Halloween Special
It’s official, I am never going to visit an island.
That being said the Lakewood 5 plus Stavo did during Scream’s 2-hour Halloween special and found out something gruesome – no matter what, they’ll never be able to escape the murders. But while it may have been another nightmare for them, it was a guilt-free treat for us. Especially because 10 minutes into the episode, we KNEW who the killer was.
It was the poor man’s Kieran. The reason they keep getting into these “unwelcome” situations is part Emma’s fault. She keeps falling in love with dudes who seriously scream “KILLER.” Case and point – Alex Whitten aka the poor man’s Kieran. Alex is the good looking dude, with blonde slicked back hair, a leather jacket and a free attitude… all clear hints at Kieran. We all knew it, Emma didn’t. This girl really needs a radar.
Emma isn’t completely at fault though. Because of everything that’s happened, these 6 teens are a target for a bunch of psychos… not only did they survive one killer in Lakewood, they survived TWO. And 3 if you count whoever murdered Kieran at the courthouse. So knowing that they literally can’t catch a break, why did they go to an island dubbed murder island? Bad judgement on their part and the perfect opportunity for whoever wants to take a stab at well, stabbing them.
The one good thing that came from the murders? Noah is a best selling author for his book based on all the killings in his hometown. His publisher, Jeremy, insists he break that “writers block” and offers to take them on a trip to get inspiration from another chilling murder story – Anne Hobbs, who as legend has it, killed her whole family in a fit of rage while wearing a bag over her head. Dramatic.
Noah is hesitant but with Kieran’s death looming over the city, Emma is dying for an escape. No pun intended. I guess it can’t be easy to be in a murder town for Halloween as the girlfriend of the crazed killer. Emma’s got a pretty bad rep for herself.
So off to murder island they go. That’s not really what it’s called but it might as well be. Everyone is having a good old time until they aren’t able to locate Jeremy, the prankster who thought it was funny to wear a Hobbs mask and scare a bunch of survivors. He had it coming honestly.
Shortly after, Billie, who lives in the caretaker’s house, is found dead, in the same way Hobbs’ victims were. Then Emma gets a call from the “Scream” voice who promises she’ll never get rid of him. Here we go again.
And so we’re 100% cliche, a huge storm is headed their way and everyone’s a little freaked out by the whole “murder” situation repeating itself for the umteenth time. Gina arrives right smack in the middle to surprise her GF Audrey but freaks out after finding the Sheriff’s head on the front porch. With no cell service and no way off the island, the gang turns to Alex, who has a boat at the dock.
He drives them out there but SURPRISE, his boat has been stolen, so instead, he allows them to take up residence in the Whitten mansion. Everyone’s on edge because you know, there’s a killer on the loose and it very well might be the person who finished off Kieran in a secure holding cell.
A lot of things start happening at once – Jeremy arrives but nobody believes that he’s 100% innocent so they lock him inside a bathroom. Audrey freaks out on Gina because she finds out she arrived on the island a lot early than she said and was taking pictures of her and Emma during “girl time.” Stavo and Noah get their McGayver on and try to get an old radio to work to call in some help.
When the power goes out, Stavo, Audrey, Brooke and Noah end up in the master bedroom and that’s where we finally begin seeing the observant Noah we all and love. He wasn’t feeling motivated for another novel out of “survivors guilt” and he didn’t like the story of Anne Hobb’s because it was too “ghost story.” When he actually gets a look at the room, he finds a secret tunnel and realizes that Anne Hobbs wasn’t crazy. In fact, her father had a wandering eye, tried to come onto her, her mother tried to defend her, her father killed the mom and her brother, she in turn killed him, then died herself. They also find Jeremy dead, killed by the dude posing to be Alex Whitten, confirmed by a picture of the REAL Alex.
“If that’s not Alex, who’s with Emma now,” Brooke wonders. Well great question guys. So much for leaving your best friend with a dude you barely know. I mean, you’d think that they’d have learned from Kieran. They were literally BFFS with him and he was the killer, so what can you expect from a dude you’ve never met?
But Emma is a survivor. She doesn’t know it, but she’s much stronger and smarter than anyone believes. At first she falls victim to Alex’s kindness. He tells her to stay safely in the room while he “checks things out” and then she’s attacked by the Hobbs masked killer. He comes back shortly after looking worried but turns on “psycho mode” quickly when she finds the real Alex’s body. “You’re not the real Alex,” she states. Bingo.
Long story short, this twisted dude named Tom saw her story on the news and felt a “connection” because he felt they were going through the same thing. His parents were murdered when he was 4 and he was attacked by the media. When he saw Emma, he hatched this plan to bring her to the island so she would fall in love with him. He spread the word about the Hobbs murder to Jeremy, who brought the gang down then posed as Alex Whitten because he knew “Emma loved bad boys.” Then he began killing off anyone who knew the real Alex and could ruin his disguise.
Emma decides to play it cool, acting exactly the way Tom would want her too. She pretends to be impressed that he’s killed all these people for her, she cradles in his arms and tells him she’d love to run away and pretend to be someone new. Props to Emma for not completely freaking out. Then, when she has the chance, she knees him in the balls, hides, stabs him from behind and lures him out to the balcony where she finally, FINALLY, find the fighter inside. She’s not a victim, she’s Emma fricking Duval. And with that, Tom lunges at her, falls over the banister and dies. Oh and the rest of the group comes running from the underground tunnel. Thanks for making it out you guys.
Another murder mystery in the books. Emma found her sense of self, realizing she couldn’t run away from her problems, she had to face them head on which meant embracing who she was – a survivor, hero and a Duval. She even applied to a college in Lakewood! No matter how much you think you’re over it though, you have to be seriously deranged to stay in that town, just saying.
Meanwhile, Noah got over his writer’s guilt seeing that many times, victims didn’t have a way to tell their story. As a survivor, he did and he would. Now that really is taking a lemon and making lemonade.
Stavo and Brooke decided they’d be going to New York together. Audrey gave jealous Gina a second chance because she’s know to make bad decisions once or twice.
But the FINAL mystery is only just beginning. You see Tom may have been psychotic, murderish and obsessive, but he didn’t finish off Kieran. That means, someone in the Scream mask did. Was it Brandon James? Was it Emma’s dad? We’ll find out in the 6-episode season 3 hopefully.
