Scream Queens

Hello everyone and welcome to Scream Queens Saturday! This is a weekly post where I will be sharing my thoughts and predictions of Fox’s latest show Scream Queens. If you’re a fellow Screamer please feel free to leave comments with any thoughts or theories you have as well!

*I know today isn’t Saturday but for the sake of this post lets transport back in time and act like it is 😉 *

This past Tuesday, September 22nd, I rushed to do all of my homework and chores so I can watch the two hour premiere of Scream Queens live (which is super rare since I literally record everything). As you can see in my previous post, I have been anticipating this series for months! You can only imagine my excitement when the show started, I think I might have squealed…

As much as I’d love to go over every single detail of the premiere I’m just going to go over my ‘experience’ watching the show as well as my overall thoughts, favorite scenes and characters, and theories for upcoming episodes.

While watching the show, I was live tweeting (which is so much harder than I’d thought it would be, how do people do it?!), live texting my friend Tiff, and talking to my sister- who was watching the show with me. After the show I thought it’d be fun to ask them what were their favorite scenes and theories, here’s what they said:

Favorite Scene

Tiff: When Chanel #2 (played by Ariana Grande) was being killed by the Red Devil; the exaggerations were hilarious

Bianca: The blood oath scene with all the Chanels because it was funny and because of the reference to Odin and Loki in Norse mythology

Favorite Character(s)

Tiff: Boone (played by Nick Jonas) and Zayday (played by Keke Palmer)

Bianca: It’s too soon to pick one


Tiff: Boone and the Red Devil are going to become a thing; the Red Devil could be Grace’s dad trying to get revenge on KKT for letting his girlfriend die in the bathtub (which leads to another theory that the woman who died was Grace’s mom) and because he wants to protect his daughter- she thinks this because the Red Devil had a chance to kill Grace but didn’t

Bianca: The Red Devil is more than one person and Gigi might be one of them because she still helps out with KKT and is keeping the Chanels close by. She also thinks that Pete will *eventually* die

Okay so my turn! Where do I even begin?! Scream Queens was everything I love in a TV show wrapped with a cute, bloody bow. It was hilarious, suspenseful, and full of mystery- the writers did an excellent job balancing the satire with the horrifying plot line. At first I was concerned that the satire was going to be a bit too over the top, but those fears were murdered ten minutes into the show, it was excellent! So props to the writers, I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.

In my first post I included my theory that I based solely on the trailers and YouTube content I’ve seen. Although my theory that Grace’s mom was the girl who died in the bathtub wasn’t proven, it was strengthened by the fact that this mystery girl gave birth before dying. Another theory I had, although I didn’t include this in my post, was that Chanel #2 aka Ariana Grande was going to be the first to die. Which wasn’t 100% true but she was the first Kappa to die, so I was close! However this theory was solely based on the fact that she’s currently working on an album and was touring at the time they were filming so I figured she didn’t have time to be in every episode 😛

To continue with the little theme I started- my favorite scene has to be when Chanel Oberlin (played by Emma Roberts) made a scene at the campus’s coffee shop when the barista, Pete (played by Diego Boneta), questioned her order for a ridiculous pumpkin spice latte order. I couldn’t stop laughing! I think that my favorite character at the moment is Chanel, I find her both fascinating and hilarious.

In the next episode I think they are going to confirm that Grace’s mom is the person that died in the bathtub. I think we’re going to uncover some more lethal secrets and I think that the Asian girl (can’t remember her name :/) is going to die next.

As for the Red Devil? I agree with my sister, I think that more than one person is the Red Devil and (like Tiff) I believe that Boone is in on it- especially since he wanted to join KKT. I also have this very far fetched idea that could be the perfect plot twist but is highly unlikely. I think that the Red Devil could be Grace’s mom (see: the woman who died), since Boone’s character didn’t really die I’m really suspicious of the death of the girl in the bathtub. Maybe she is super angry at KKT for abandoning her when she needed help and that anger was refueled when she noticed that her daughter wanted to pledge there. What better way to prevent people from hurting your daughter then killing them? I know it’s far fetched, but if you REALLY think about it it’s possible! It will explain why the dean helped ‘hide’ the murder and why she’s suddenly trying to exterminate the sorority…

Okay that’s going to be all for today, I really wish I could’ve dove further into the details but this post is long enough as is! Please let me know what your thoughts were on the first episodes (: Until then scream on!
