The return of the Chanels and Zayday.
Scream Queens returns with its witty humor and suspenseful horror in a new setting. By flash forwarding a couple of years, we find the original crew in a hospital. Dean Munsch is now the owner of the hospital who employees Zayday —who’s nurse— and eventually the Chanels.
As we all know, most of the all-star cast was killed off in Season 1. Even though we will miss Boone—Nick Jonas—, that means there’s more room for new all-star actors. The show introduced Dr. Cassidy Cascade—Taylor Lautner— and Dr. Brock Holt—John Stamos— as the new eye candy for the season. Also, they added Kirstie Alley as a bossy nurse who’s out to get the Chanels.
The addition of the new, famous actors, of course, came with witty references to their previous roles or what they are known for in real life. Of course, they enhanced John Stamos’ role as the older, handsome bachelor with things like slow, dramatic shower scenes. Not to mention he’s a surgeon with a fake hand that he sometimes can’t control.
For Taylor Lautner, they couldn’t bypass connecting his character with references to werewolves and vampires. As they referenced his skin being so icy cold, I couldn’t help but laugh at the fact that his character might be a vampire in the series.
Lastly, the distraction of the new eye candy made me realize that there were far fewer killings and gory scenes than the premiere of Season 1. They saved the killing suspense for the end created a new costume for the killer. Instead of the red devil, the killer seems to wear some green creature. It was pretty clear at the end that we may have lost a Chanel, but we will find out in the next episode.
