Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) has proved throughout Season 1 of "Scream" that she is a strong character. But will she be able to overcome the loss of another good friend after she witnessed her ex-boyfriend Will (Connor Weil) get chopped in half in front of her?
In a sneak peek of episode 8, Emma is shown returning to school for the first time since Will’s death. As she walks through the doors people stop and stare, shocked that she has returned to school so shortly after the horrible murder she witnessed and accidentally set in motion.
Noah (John Karna) and Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus) go right up to Emma at her locker but struggle to find the right words to say to her.
“Emma, there are no words, I mean I’m sure there are but I can’t think of any ...” Noah says as he’s cut off by Audrey. “We know what you’re going through, and we’re here if you need anything,” Audrey tells her.
Emma responds, “I’m OK, really ... I’ll see you in class.” Noah and Audrey know she’s far from all right. As Emma walks away from her locker, she rounds the corner and finds Will’s old locker, which has become a makeshift memorial covered with notes and pictures. This freeze’s Emma in her steps and it looks like she’s not too far from breaking.
Watch the sneak peek video below.
The killer has now shown that he is 100 percent in control as he continues to toy with Emma. There have been five victims of the killer in the Brandon James mask so far. Will there be another name added to the list by the end of episode 8?
"Scream” episode 8 airs Tuesday, Aug. 18, at 10 p.m. EDT on MTV.
