The hunt for the devil mask-wearing killer is in full swing on “Scream Queens.” Following Tuesday’s epic Season 1 premiere, the girls of Kappa Kappa Tau will begin looking for clues to help solve the mysterious murders of their friends and classmates in episode 3, at least, some of them will.
According to TVGuide, Chanel (Emma Roberts) will spend episode 3, titled “Chainsaw,” with her “latest project.” Could she be grooming a future Chanel after losing Chanel No 2. (Ariana Grande) in the pilot? According to the synopsis, the sorority queen is setting her sights on Hester (Lea Michele), who she previously deemed "Neck Brace," in Tuesday's upcoming installment.
And good thing she may have another lackey in the wings because according to the summary for episode 3, one of her minions may have a shock in store for her fearless leader. “Chanel #3 [Billie Lourd] has a confession to make,” reveals the synopsis. What truths will Chanel No. 3 have to share with her fellow sisters? Is it possible she's responsible for the murders?
Elsewhere in episode 3 Grace (Skyler Samuels) and Zayday (Keke Palmer), two of Kappa's newest additions, will “notice a startling connection between two fellow students.” Grace began investigating Kappa alongside Pete (Diego Boneta) in the premiere after Ms. Bean’s (Jan Hoag) murder, but there’s no mention of her regrouping with the student reporter. Could he be part of Grace and Zayday’s suspect twosome on campus? It seems likely after Grace’s discovery in episode 1. Viewers will remember she found a Red Devil costume, the same outfit worn by the killer, in his closet. He claimed to only wear the outfit during sporting events. There may be a silver lining for Pete, though. According to the synopsis, Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) will appoint a new mascot in episode 3.
Grace and Zayday will not be the only investigators in episode 3. Kappa’s security guard Denise (Niecy Nash) “goes gunning for Kappa,” according to the summary. Chanel’s ex-boyfriend Chad (Glen Powell) and Earl Grey (Lucien Laviscount) will also go on the hunt for the masked murderer. After all, the killer did “kill” Chad’s best friend Boone (Nick Jonas) in the premiere. “Chad and Earl Grey muster the fraternity to go on a witch hunt for the Red Devil,” reads the synopsis.
“Guys, there’s a killer on this campus,” Chad tells his housemates in the promo video for “Chainsaw.”
Will Chad and Earl Grey be successful in finding the Red Devil? Viewers will have to stayed tune to find out! “Scream Queens” episode 3, titled “Chainsaw,” airs Tuesday, Sept. 29, at 9 p.m. EDT on Fox.
