Cathy Munsch buys an abandoned hospital in the Scream Queens season 2 premiere. For a refresher on where the show left off, read my recap of the season one finale.
The Scream Queens season 2 premiere opens with a flashback to a Halloween party at hospital in 1985. A pregnant woman desperately seeks a doctor until Dr. Mike agrees to help her husband. Instead of performing a procedure on the man like he said he would, Dr. Mike throws his body into a nearby swamp.
In the present day, Munsch welcomes a woman named Miss Hobart into her new hospital. She promises that here at her hospital, the impossible is possible.
Munsch recruits Zayday Williams to work at the hospital. When Zayday says that she’s working three jobs to pay fo med school, Munsch offers to pay for her med school and tells her that working at the hospital will also count towards her residency. Zayday agrees.
Dr. Brock Holt and Dr. Cassidy Cascade introduce themselves to Zayday. Zayday notices a mark on Brock’s hand and Brock informs her that he was the recipient of the first successful human hand transplant.
After her first day on the job, Zayday confronts Munsch about the fact that she’s the only woman working at the hospital. She reminds her that she’s supposed to be a feminist.
Chanel Oberlin catches the audience up on what’s been going on with her and the other Chanels. Although they were exonerated when Hester Ulrich accidentally confessed, they faced being publicly ostracized due to how unlikable they were in the Netflix documentary about the murders. Since then the Chanels have been working as orderlies.
Zayday is doing laundry and is shocked when the Chanels arrive and inform them that they’re now medical students. After her surprise wears off, she hugs them and tells them that she’s glad they’re here.
Munsch shows the Chanels the locker room. They’re upset about having to war scrubs, but are distracted when they see Dr. Brock showering.
Later, the Chanels have a meeting with Munsch, who puts them on academic probation for the bedside manner. They ask if they’ll still be receiving salaries and Munsch informs them they were never receiving salaries.
Back at their dorm, Chanel #5 and Chanel #3 say that academic probation isn’t so bad. Chanel reminds them that her dream of being a network news anchor will never come true.
Chanel helps Dr. Brock come up with a possible cure for Miss Hobart. He chooses to do her idea instead of the surgery that Zayday had suggested.
The Chanels check on Miss Hobart and discover she’s lost all of her hair. She gets angry at them and Chanel says, “I think we need to consider one more procedure: a makeover.”
Chanel #5 and Miss Hobart are taking baths when someone in the same goblin costume that Dr. Mike wore in the beginning enters and beheads Miss Hobart. He brings his knife down on Chanel #5 next and the episode ends before we see whether he kills her.
