Wes Gardner: Cathy, that was the best sex of my life! I'm not joking.
Dean Cathy Munsch: Well, uh... Seeing as you remained celibate for a full 18 years and then decided to re-pop your cherry with the most mentally ill woman on campus, I'm gonna take that with a grain of salt.

The Dawn of The Darkness Is Coming
24 December 2016 | by pipecaxSee all my reviews

The colossal final comes double. "Dorkus" is the first piece of ending of season special, however, the darkness is conspicuous by clarity absence and twelfth and penultimate episode deliberately plays with our minds. It opens exactly in the 'cliffhanger' where "Black Friday" had finished, moment in which Pete—the amorous interest of Grace— declared that he is the author of some of the crimes. Spectacular opening, fascinating end, "Scream Queens" seems to end in the same way like began.

Since the beginning of the season, Pete has been on the good side, however, with the passage of events, his attitude was turning into sinister and was too acquiescent to discover who was the 'Red Devil'. As relevant, Diego Boneta succinctly stood out in his role with an explanatory subtle monologue in his last sighs of life. After explaining to Grace what happened: when he exterminated the "muscle" of the murders (Boone), he thought that the murders would cease, but it wasn't as well. Roger and/or Doger—it's tremendously difficult to distinguish them,—the chase in underground ducts of the house, the unidentified police officer and surprisingly foolish—literally—shot to Chanel Oberlin—ridiculously funny the motive of revenge whereby he wanted to kill her—were his actions in all the mess. As the clarifications of narrative maze progress, pieces in the killer puzzle fit quickly, however, the question: who is the murderer? It extends from corner to corner, slowly revealing its identity. Obviously, such manifestation would adhere explicitly to the last minute, but nevertheless, Ryan plays his cards and send us from one side to another trying to decipher the final milestone. As expected, when Pete was revealing the official name is—predictably—killed by the Red Devil Killer, the only thing we know is that #SpoilerAlert: It's one of the channels. Around this exciting premise, the episode toys without control to take us to the brink of the abyss, another fantastic 'cliffhanger', all the same, this time we must not wait a whole week for the astonishing outcome.

"Dorkus" begins with an iconic opening sequence. In addition gives homage to the greats of horror, "Scream Queens" takes advantage of some viral trends of the new age, such as the intro in "Chanel-O- Ween" to Taylor Swift style. Now, it revives the flame of that viral missive from University of Maryland in 2013 by imposing it characteristic touches of the series. Chanel writes an e-mail to her minions showing her hatred and repudiation by not running the simplest plan in the world. Unfortunately, one of her sisters sends the message to all students in the campus—ironically the same as the 2013 incident,— thus generating a wave of slating comments against Chanel, the most prominent: "The worst person in the world." After an unsatisfactory suicide attempt, she and Zayday are surprised by the killer, however, who turns out to be a pizza delivery boy with an explosive surprise... he is filled with dynamite. The bloodiest and funniest sequence, returning to be an allusion to 90s war films since everyone goes running producing guttural male screams of horror.

While Chanel finds a perfect way of being loved by all her audiences again, Grace and her father decide to unleash their macabre and sexual research plan pressing the 'play' to an aggressive romantic evening. Once more Jamie Lee Curtis shines with Oliver Hudson in a comically sagacious sexual act. On the other side of the house are Grace and Zayday trying to eliminate the noisy sounds of pleasure from the next-door bedroom and focus on finding the suitable profile for a killer. Indeed, they find it but as Pete, the revelation to the end.

In a show jam-packed of blood and insanity, anyone can lose the only screw of sanity that owns and keeping in mind that the channels have a small number of screws, the worst is about to come. A la Oren Peli (found-footage), Chanel #3 records a fraternal apology to Melanie Dorkus—the girl burned by the aerosol,—which turns into disastrous at the moment when Chanel decides to kill her with scissors, considering that she is the killer. However, they get rid of two of her sisters (#5 and #6) who is absent from the place for reasons absurdly real. Right before that it's too late, Zayday and Grace burst into the room, stating that they already know the name of the killer, "Heh, So sorry"!

"Dorkus" exchanges the roles, now we are who seek with all forces the guilty. The waiting has ended. A dozen of corpses—among them one ice cream cone—have left the mark of the killer more brutal in the history of the University of Wallace. Possibly, the motivations of the killer are sufficiently convincing and humanist for providing to the show a dramatic weight that by own essence it hinders. We are at last on the home straight after many long months of work, however, the home straight still has a pair of forks and one not so monumental juncture.
