Say whosey whatsy what now?
The last 10 seconds of tonight's Scream Queens has us thinking all kinds of thoughts because it appears that the guy who looked the most suspicious in the very first episode, and yet we somehow totally forgot all about that, is perhaps indeed The Red Devil.
(Or, at the very least, a Red Devil.)
"I don't want your first time to be with a murderer," Pete (Diego Boneta) tells Grace (Skyler Samuels), moments after we see him packing up his bags to flee the campus, after telling someone on the phone that he's had enough, and "This isn't me."
The phone call, of course, along with the reveal that he still has that Red Devil costume hanging in his closet (nice hiding place, ya chump!), leads us to believe that Pete has been doing some very nasty, murderous deeds, but probably was not the mastermind who orchestrated the whole thing.
Why? Well, remember when Boone (Nick Jonas) died at the hands of his own "brother" in a Red Devil costume? And that whole scene with Boone and Gigi (Nasim Pedrad) showed us that the Red Devil that killed Boone was pulling all the strings? Well, Pete CANNOT be Boone's brother. Because Boone is Grace's brother. And that would add up to the yuckiest incest twist TV has ever seen. Ryan Murphy wouldn't dare...Would he? I mean, they dressed up as Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey from How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days for Halloween, for crying out loud. That MUST be kept sacred.
Assuming Pete is not Boone's brother and therefore not the H.R.D.I.C. (Head Red Devil in Charge), the question remains: WHO IS? In next week's two-hour season finale, all will be revealed. So here's our final ranking of the least to most likely:
3. GRACE: Just because she's the last person you'd expect, she is still possibly a bathtub baby (or at the very least, the sister of one), and she's been showing her true murderous colors as of late.
2. CHANEL OBERLIN: That whole scene at the mall made no sense. Why would Chanel, the most self-serving person on the planet, decide to turn around and face The Red Devil instead of flee, unless she was trying to show everyone she's not The Red Devil? Either that harpoon "wound" she suffered at the mall was some very low-budget theatrics, or the girl was faking it and holding between her arm and torso. There wasn't a drop of blood to be seen. Also: She could very well be related to Grace and Boone. Have you noticed how much Chanel and Grace look alike? And share a brain when it comes to ways of killing people (Munch)? The show started off with Chanel and Grace facing off, and there just has to be more of a connection there.
1. DEAN MUNCH: Ryan Murphy himself hinted from the very beginning that the Red Devil killer is obvious. So obvious that it might be the last person you'd expect. That has to be Munch, right? She's already been ID'd by pretty much every main character as The Red Devil, she is directly tied to the night of the bathtub murders, AND she is someone Pete was fighting to protect (telling Grace not to kill her--which, let's face it, is pretty sound advice). Munch also clearly was ahead of every single scheme Chanel had to off her in tonight's episode. She knew about the cider. She knew about the freezing chamber. She knew about the pool. My best guess? Munch is The Red Devil and she has either Chanel #3 (those earmuffs still have to be transmitting to someone, right!?) or Chanel #5 in on it. Chanel #5's Size 0 lingerie rant was perfectly timed to keep the girls away from the pool.
Could it be ANYONE ELSE? Who am I missing? Perhaps Chad Radwell, the only Dicky Dollar left standing? Tweet me your best theories @KristinDSantos, or post them below. Looking forward to next Tuesday's finale and the final reveal! Let's watch it together, shall we?
