We Review The Latest Episode of Scream Queens SN02 EP10 – ‘Drain the Swamp’


From Left, No.3 (Billie Lourd), Chanel No.1 (Emma Roberts), No.5 (Abigail Breslin)

The season 2 finale came to a close with 3 deaths, a resurrection and Hester (Lea Michele) getting away once again.

After failing again to kill Chanel (Emma Roberts), Nurse Hoffel (Kirstie Alley) comes up with a plan to drain the swamp, which happens to be flammable and blow up the hospital with the Chanel’s inside.

While Hoffel is busy draining the swamp, Dr. Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner) decides he wants to be with No.3 (Billie Lourd) and doesn’t want to kill anymore, and of course this doesn’t go down well with his mum, Mrs. Hollis.

Meanwhile, Hester and Dr. Holt (John Stamos) have a plan of their own. Dr. Holt proposes to a dying Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) and they quickly marry, much to Chanel’s dismay. Hester and Brock plan to run away to blood island with Munsch’s fortune after her death. Unfortunately for them, No.5 (Abigail Breslin)suggests they do a brain biopsy to be sure Munsch really has Kuru. The procedure goes okay, apart from a jealous Chanel trying to pour a pumpkin spice latte on Munsch’s exposed brain. The results are inconclusive but No.5 claims her symptoms correlate with those of extreme dehydration. Munsch then realises she never drinks water, even rinsing her mouth with scotch every morning. So bad news for Hester and Holt as it turns out she is not dying but in fact is extremely dehydrated.

Hoffel puts her plan into action as she lures the group into the basement to celebrate. She traps them, but is rudely interrupted by Zayday (Keke Palmer) and Mrs. Hollis. Zayday was trapped in Mrs. Hollis’ basement, but managed to talk Mrs. Hollis into letting go of her anger and showing her the good the hospital is doing now. Mrs. Hollis attempts to stop Hoffel but Hoffel shoots her and she dies in her son’s arms. Hoffel escapes as the bomb ticks down. In the face of death No.5 reveals that she does in fact have teeth in her vagina (#Awkward). Although, Hoffel didn’t count on our favourite special agent coming back from the dead. That’s Right! Denise Hemphill is back y’all! Denise wakes from the cryo-chamber just in time to save the day. She disarms the bomb with her knowledge from an episode of Quantico (I Love all her Quantico references!). The gang catch up with Hoffel but she kills Cascade as he shields No.3. As they amusingly point out to a dying Cascade, he could have just pushed her out the way. They continue to chase after Hoffel until she gets caught in quick sand and they decide to leave her to die.

Dr. Holt (John Stamos) and Hester (Lea Michele)

The episode ends with a time jump where we find that Hester and Holt stole all Munsch’s money and ran away to blood island, which they turned into the own murder island as we see them discussing the murder of the guests. But no need to worry about Munsch as she moves to Aspen and becomes a successful ‘sexpert’. Zayday and the newly realised genius No.5 stay on at the hospital. Chanel Oberlin achieves her dreams of becoming a TV doctor with her own show ‘Loving the C’ with No.3 as the producer.

Just when we think they get a happy ending, Chanel fate is left in mystery when the Red Devil waits for her in her car. Who do you think is under the mask? Maybe Grace is back to get her own revenge now that her father is dead. Or maybe Chad didn’t die  (a girl can dream) and he is just trying to scare her like he did in the closing moments of the season 1 finale.

This seems like a fitting ending as it may be its last episode due to the negative reviews and drop in the ratings. Did you enjoy this season? What did you think about the finale? Who do you think the Red Devil is? Comment and let us know.

Also, are thoughts are with Scream Queens star Billie Lourd (No.3) as her mother Carrie Fisher and grandmother Debbie Reynolds died just after Christmas.
