It’s official- everyone on Scream has never seen a horror movie before.
The cliche’s are all there- the empty hellos, going out into dark alleys where they know they’ll get killed, a police officer who probably wasn’t even trained. Seriously, who approaches a burning car and doesn’t think it’s going to explode?
Emma finally figured out that her mom is Daisy in this weeks episode thanks to some files Kieran brought over. Yep, he stole them from dad cause he’s a bad boy. When she confronts her mom about that and asks about the heart in a box, which she overheard her mom talk about with the Sheriff at the morgue, her mom refuses to answer her questions. So I guess ghost face really is the only one telling Emma the answers.
Ghost face was in a playful mood this week, letting Emma choose his next victim. When Riley got a text from what she thought was Tyler, she immediately wanted to go help him out. Emma was quick to catch on that it was probably the same crazed, psycho stalker that’s been calling and DM’ing her… cause yes Ghost face has a twitter. Also, his screen name is BrandonJames_94. Seriously, underscore?
Anyways, Emma and Brooke both decide it’s best to take this to the cops. If Tyler is innocent, they’ll set him free. The cops arrange for a decoy to meet up with Tyler in a secret location. When he shows up, they find out it’s a rando kid who was paid to come out and give them a drawing of the killers mask. #Annoying.
Meanwhile, Brooke separates from the girls and goes to a hotel room where she thinks she’s meeting up with her teacher and FWB. She’s not. Ghost face is clearly incredibly talented at hacking technology. Riley stays back at the station and Emma begins messaging with the killer. He tells her since she wasn’t down to play his game, now she has to choose which one of her friends and which one dies. She tells him not to hurt Brooke, so he goes for Riley instead.
He pulls up to the back of the police station and lures her out via text pretending to be Tyler again. When she approaches the car, he stabs her multiple times. She climbs to the top of the roof and bleeds out on a Facetime call with Noah, the nerdy kid she never got a chance to do. The moment is the first emotional kill. Now, things are personal.
Emma makes it back to the precinct to find her friend dead. Yeah, it’s safe to say the string of murders are occurring again just like they did 20 years ago. The question is why? And what’s end game? I have to say, I’m kind of upset the slutty bimbo lived while the good friend died though.
As of now, I feel like Jake and Will are the killers. They’ve been shady since episode one with Will talking about how Jake needs to shut down the business or they’ll be blamed for Nina’s murder. And they were in cahoots with Tyler, who Jake offered to pay out for his silence. In the end, they meet in the dark woods- also dumb- and both seem pretty threatening to each other with Jake holding a shovel over his head and Will clutching a knife behind his back. And to top it all off, they say they’re going to continue what Nina and Will started? What would that be? Publicly humiliating people? And in the original film, the two friends were guilty as all hell. So there’s that. Plus, Jake talked to Brooke about reenacting “50 Shades” and then basically left her in the red room of pain alone… and honestly, doesn’t he just look shady?
Also possible killers- the Sheriff who would know that Emma talked to her mom about the truth because Kieran brought over the folders. He’s basically feeding her the information. Plus, he’s got the resources and technology to pull it off.
Who do you think the killer is? Do these teens need to start using their brains? Should they trust the sheriff?
* Note- I know in this show they refer to the killer as Brandon James, but I’m still referring to him as Ghost Face for obvious (and awesome) reasons.
“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.
Thoughts on the Halloween episode?
