Holy beard! Holy pecs! Holy Nick Jonas!
Yes, Boone himself (Jonas) made a triumphant return to Scream Queens tonight and the writers explained his beefier bod in the most perfect of ways.
While in real life, Jonas had bulked up (and shaved his head) over his six-episode SQ hiatus to shoot DirecTV's boxing drama Kingdom, on Scream Queens it was explained that he's been hiding out with nothing to do but "work out and kill people." He's also rocking a ridiculous beard that makes people mistake him for "Wockeen Phoenix."
"He thinks he's got a brilliant disguise on and he's blending in perfectly with the normal crowd," Jonas says in the exclusive video on the Scream Queens set above. (Press play now!) "Clearly he doesn't. He's not the brightest in the bunch. But it's really setting up what's about to happen in the next episode."
In the next episode, you'll find out why Boone has it out for Gigi (Nasim Pedrad), who is next on the Red Devil's kill list, and more. "The minute you think something's happening, something changes and everything is flipped on its head," Nick spills. "I think you'll see very clearly with Boone that he's probably more involved than you thought originally and really in the mix."
