The Halloween madness will continue when “Scream Queens” airs episode 5 of the hit Fox series Tuesday. And from the title of the upcoming Season 1 installment, it’ safe to say that “Pumpkin Patch” will center around the spooky fundraiser Chanel (Emma Roberts) created to one-up Zayday’s (Keke Palmer) haunted house.
But will Zayday’s disappearance put a damper on Chanel’s plans on having a scary presidential campaign? It seems like it just might after Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) “makes an announcement affecting the campus.”
In episode 4, Zayday, who revealed that she was running against Chanel for Kappa Kappa Tau president, was suspiciously kidnapped by the Red Devil. (Did Chanel have something to do with her vanishing?) Zayday was taken after attempting to get ahold of the police to shut down her haunted house on Shady Lane. (The home Zayday used to host her chilling charity event ended up being the location of where all the missing bodies were stashed. Not to mention, the Shady Lane home is also where the wailing woman in black [Nasim Pedrad] lurks.)
“Meanwhile, Grace (Skyler Samuels) and Pete (Diego Boneta) lead a search party for their missing friend,” the summary says. But can they track down Zayday before she becomes the Red Devil’s next victim?
The search for Zayday will steer the two closer to cracking the KKT murder case “than ever before,” the synopsis reveals, adding that Chanel No. 3 (Billie Lourd) and Chanel No. 5 (Abigail Breslin) will “learn what life would be like without Chanel.”
Is it possible that Chanel’s minions will come to love their lives without the overbearing KKT president? This may just mean Chanel No. 3 and 5 might become members of Team Zayday before the episode is through.
“Scream Queens” airs Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. EDT on Fox.
