With the business of the last few episodes of SCREAM THE SERIES we decided to give you the recaps of Episodes 6, 7 and 8 all in one shot from Heather Lee, enjoy!
As the day begins and none of Wills friends know about what has happened to him, Emma and her mother Maggie have a little mother daughter time in the kitchen. Maggie is preparing sausage and kale for a dinner she is having with Sheriff Clark later that night and lets Emma know Kieran will be attending. Emma acts surprised, but her mother can read between the lines. She asks Emma about her and Kieran’s relationship and if they are also dating. What a weird situation that would be for mother and daughter to be dating father and son. Emma tells her mother that Kieran and her are just friends, which of course is a lie and that weird situation is actually happening. Maggie lets Emma know how glad she is that she told Emma the truth behind her’s and Brandon James relationship, but was it really all the truth? Emma then questions about her father and how Maggie and him made it through all of the horror that took place that night. Maggie says she was able to coup with it all but her father didn’t have the strength to put it all behind him to move on.
Brooke and Jake continue to talk about her mothers disappearance and they decided to let Emma in on the little secret of Will trying to blackmail her father. While the three are having a discussion, Piper shows up out of know where and tells Emma that they need to talk. Piper takes the three of them to the abandon warehouse that her and Will went to meet with Brooke’s dad. During this time Jake has no choice but to come clean about his involvement to Brooke and Emma. Brooke is of course disgusted but is to caught up in the moment to get fully pissed. Piper explains to Emma what happened the night Will and her went to meet with the Mayor. That Will was really trying to do the right thing and that Will saved her from the Ghostface killer. Piper then takes them to the brick wall that clearly has a message to Emma saying ” No Cops Emma”. After the group sees the message Emma immediately gets a call from Ghostface. He tells her the game isn’t about choosing anymore, it has now turned into a game of hide and seek. Meaning she has only a limited amount of time to find Will before he becomes his next victim.
Emma wants to go on a frantic hunt for Will but she needs the help of Noah to track down where Will’s phone is, since Ghostface used his phone to call her. Noah was able to track Will’s phone down to an abandon bowling alley. The group gets together and arrives to the bowling alley. As soon as they do Kieran calls Emma to find out where she is for their awkward dinner with their parents. Emma asks Kieran to cover for her and to say she is helping Audrey study for her missed midterms. That she has to take care of something. He lets her know he will but she owes him big. Jake, Emma, Brooke and Noah decided to split up and meet around the back so they can look for a entrance to get in. Emma and Noah are the first to find an open door. Though this door being open just seems to easy. Jake and Brooke, finally end up with them and they all enter the abandon bowling alley.
Once inside the decision is made to separate again. While they are separated Brooke and Jake have flirtatious conversation. Jake ends up leaving Brooke alone to run to the bathroom. Brooke is alone in the creepy empty bowling alley and she starts to hear some rustling. All of sudden Brooke has a run in with Ghostface. Brooke is screaming and runs the other direction. While Noah and Emma are on there search she figures out the riddle that Ghostface gives her and they end up finding Will, barely breathing and unconscious. Will is hanging in what seems to be the control room. Brooke is now with them and they cut Will down. Emma is frantic and wishing Will to come too. Will does come too but is in a lot of pain from the cut on his stomach. They bandage his cut with duck tape. Will tries to get up but he is still in pain from something on his back. Ghostface had carved B4 in the middle of his back. Emma gets to searching and finds a drawer marked with that letter and number. She finds Brandon James time card wrapped around a tape.
The groups realizes that Jake is still missing and they need to find him quick. Emma is the first to flee since she is determined to listen to the tape and knows that Ghostface wants her to listen. Once Emma has left, the group decides to make there own run for it, but as soon as the door opens Ghostface is there welding his knife. They all try to keep him from coming in. Brooke escapes first, then following is Noah. Will is left to fight to keep the main door closed and finally does and gets free himself. Brooke ends up finding Jake with a knife stuck straight in his chest. He is barely awake. Brooke is able to get the knife out of his chest. While this is going on you are flung into the chase between Emma and Ghostface. As he is about to strike Emma, Will comes out of no where and flings himself at Ghostface. He tackles him to the ground. While all this craziness is happening the cops show up. Audrey had called Noah while they were trapped in the control room and was able to get to Sheriff Clark and Maggie to let them know they were in trouble. Go Audrey to save the day. Everyone is now safe…. for the moment.
Emma during this whole thing starts to realize her feelings for Will haven’t gone away. Kieran can tell and knows she needs time. He lets Emma know he knows what he wants, She just needs to figure it out herself. Later Will calls Emma to get her to come over and watch movies since he is bed ridden. Emma agrees. After picking up some candy and arriving to Will’s house she gets a phone call from Will’s phone. Of course she questions who it really is and comes to find it is Ghostface. He tells her the game is still on but the stakes have changed. It is not her choice anymore it is only her actions that will get Will killed. He suggest to Emma that she runs! Emma run’s through the barn at Will’s place to find Will tied to a chair in front of a tractor type machine with a long sharp blade, running very close to Will’s head. Emma freak’s and runs towards him not knowing that Ghostface had laid a trip wire. Will’s eyes go wide not being able to scream since he is gagged. Emma trips the wire and the blade moves forward. The camera turns to Emma, she is in straight horror as only she is seeing the blade cut through Will and we only see her getting covered in Will’s blood.
Emma has literally been thrown into a bad dream sequence that is never going to end. Maggie and Sheriff Hudson are worried about, what this trauma will do to Emma. She gets put on anti-depressents and is hesitant to take them. She continues to listen to the tape she found in the bowling alley of her dad saying he can’t believe she would sleep with him. Referring to Maggie and Brandon James. Emma has pretty much gone numb and she feels she is ready to return to school after really not taking enough time to herself. As Emma walks into school the students are shocked to see her, the whispers start and the conversations between the students are obvious to Emma but she continues to walk through the halls as if nothing is wrong. Noah and Audrey are the first of her friends she sees in the halls.
The two of them are as shocked as everyone else that Emma has returned so soon. They try to comfort her but aren’t having the best of luck when all three of them run into Will’s locker which has been covered in pictures and memories. Emma quickly takes off and Kieran is the next one she runs into. Giving her a hug, he seems to be the only one who has given her some comfort but that is only because he didn’t ask any questions. Obviously Emma appreciates it, but she needs time. Though time really isn’t on Emma’s side as she is starting to have hallucinations of bloody split head Will in the hallways in school and really everywhere. He is trying to tell her something but she can’t quite figure it out. Will always has a bloody heart key chain in his hands that he is trying to give Emma.What is her subconscious trying to tell her? Only time will tell and a visit from her father.
Emma ends up getting admitted to the hospital due to lack of sleep and just pure shock from what happened to Will. During her time in the hospital her subconscious starts directing her to find out what really is going on. Her father comes in to see her which starts to trigger her memory of the day he left. She follows him out into the hall where she ends up in the maternity ward. All of sudden reality hits and her father has disappeared but she is still standing in the maternity ward. It hits Emma, and she knows exactly what she needs to look for. She gets on her computer and instant messages Audrey to send her the video they took while at the abandon hospital. She remembers seeing flashes of things, X-rays that were being displayed. One that sicks out the most is a sonogram of a baby. Emma is looking at this in the video when her mother comes walking in to her hospital room.
In the meantime, Noah and Audrey continue to do there hunt on Br. Branson. Noah explains that it makes perfect sense for him to hide in plain site. The two them break into Mr. Branson’s classroom after school hours to continue there search. Audrey tells Noah she thinks she sees something hidden in the vent. Low and behold the killers knife is found in a plastic bag. This is the proof the two of them need to finally call in the police. Noah calls Sheriff Hudson and lets him know what they found. Noah also finds out some other interesting information on Mr. Branson. That he isn’t who he says he is. His actual name is Seth Palmer. Seth Palmer used to teach at another school where he was accused of sleeping with an 18 yr old student in his class who ended up turning up dead. All of sudden Seth Palmer is no where to be found and Mr. Branson shows up in Lakewood. Now this rings a bell ! After finally convincing Sheriff Hudson, he puts an APB out on Mr. Branson.
