'Scream Queens' Season 2

(Spoilers, obvi)
So, the much awaited season 2 of 'Scream Queens' came and gone in the blink of an eye and while it hasn't reached the level of perfection that the first season was, it hasn't been bad at all.

First things first, season 2's first episode was amazing, letting us know what happened with the Chanels with a very on point docu-series of the Kappa murders with a 'Making a Murderer' docu style, the Chanels were found not guilty but disowned by their families and therefore, poor. And this season they had to make their way to the top again.

With season 2 taking place in a hospital the plot has been a bit if a disappointment compared to rumors of season 2 taking place in a Summer camp (that would had been awesome and there are rumors of that for season 3) and everything was not as bubbly, silly and so fitting for the Chanels as S1's sorority. And while the Green Meanie plot has been quite good in the last few eps with the reveal of Cassidy (Taylor Lautner) as the baby in the womb, and Kirstie Alley as nurse Hoffel and Grace's dad, Wes, looking for revenge, it's not been as hilarious as it used to be. Sure it had its great moments with characters like the fabulous Chanel-Pour-Homme (gone too soon just like Deaf Taylor Swift) or Chad Radwell's return (RIP), but i think the scene stealer has been again Hester aka Neckbrace (Lea Michele) with her delirious psycho mind. The Chanels have also been the best part of the season, as usual,  but sometimes they felt kinda like they didn't use their whole potential, but i would watch a show with these three no matter what. John Stamos and Taylor Lautner have also been great additions and having more random Chanels was fun too.

What i liked a lot about the plot is how they linked it to season 1 with nurse Hoffle being Mrs. Bean's sister, as noone saw that coming, and Wes returning looking to avenge his daughter Grace, who has gone bananas after the Kappa murders, and that gives us a clue for the Red Devil that appears right before the episode ends, that it could be Grace. That would be a really good plot for Season 3 as she's the only one who wants to kill the Chanels now and if it took place in another setting it would be better. The only bad thing is that the actress that plays Grace (Skyler Samuels) was so bland but maybe she's better playing a mean character.

Anyway, i'm mentally preparing myself for the cancellation of the show, because it doesn't look like it will be renewed but i really hope so. I think three seasons would be enough to wrap the show and i have faith in Ryan Murphy giving it life again as he has done with 'American Horror Story' this year. We won't know the fate of our Chanels until next year so in the meantime let's enjoy some of the best moments this irregular but not bad second season has had, as always, after the cut idiot hookers.
