Oh, how the mighty have fallen. In the two-hour Season 1 finale of “Scream Queens,” which airs Tuesday night, fans will watch as Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) goes from being the queen bee of Kappa Kappa Tau to most hated woman in the world.
“I mean, I’m all for public shaming. I practically invented it!” Chanel says in a promo video for the upcoming episode as she walks through an angry mob of screaming picketers. “It’s a sign of a healthy culture. But not when I’m the one getting shamed. I wanted to be famous, but not like this.”
According to E! Online, Chanel will become the leading story of every “so-called mainstream media” after an email she wrote to her sorority sisters goes viral.
In the previous episode, Chanel had concocted a plan with her fellow sisters to take down Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) once and for all after they all agreed she was the Red Devil killer. However, every time they tried to kill Munsch (first by poisoning and then by freezing), the dean mysteriously managed to survive. That’s when Hester (Lea Michelle) suggested drowning the invincible dean -- just like Rasputin.
Chanel thought the plan was worth a shot and handed out cell phones to her sisters -- ones that would blink red when she needed them to help “drown the b----.” But instead of running to her murderous side when their phones illuminated shades of red, the Chanels left their fearsome leader standing alone in the pool hall with Munsch and a suspicious bag of chains.
Outraged by their incompetence, Chanel wrote an angry email to her minions -- an email apparently inspired by the infamous letter written by a Greek president to her sorority sisters in 2013. And although fans won’t know what sassy insults were weaved into the message until the airing of the finale, it was revealed in a promo video for the forthcoming installment that the public will be utterly horrified by Chanel’s cruel comments.
But do you honestly think Chanel Oberlin cares about what the media and relentless attackers on social media have to say about her? The blonde-haired KKT co-president answered that inquiry in a sneak-peek clip:
“I offer the following heartfelt sentiment: You can all suck it!”
The two-hour “Scream Queens” Season 1 finale episode airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
