I don't want to say this was a waste of an episode. I don't! And really, this week's episode of Scream Queens wasn't a waste. It showed me exactly how many logic gaps one single episode of television could contain.
The Previn/Mia Farrow/André Previn love triangle did not involve murder or imprisonment. Still, for those familiar with both the true story and the song, you'll find the Jamie Lee Curtis-led episode to be quite the twisted homage.
Don't fret pledges, this week's episode threw us right back into the thick of the plot -- and illuminated a certain character's darkness.
"Beware of Young Girls" had all the trappings of a filler episode. Sure, we learned a few new things about Dean Munsch (and about Chad's lactose intolerance), but as far as furthering the Red Devil plot, we really got nowhere.
God, the middle of a mystery show is always the worst, and we have five more weeks before we find out who did it. The writers better find a way of engaging us really quickly.
What's worst about "Beware Of Young Girls" is that it's neither aggressively bad nor aggressively good enough to make it even a middle of the road episode. Instead, it's merely a nothing episode.
While it was much needed to have an episode that spent more time developing Dean Munsch, "Beware of Young Girls" felt too much like a filler episode that was trying to buy more time until Scream Queens needs to resolve the whodunnit mystery.
"Beware of Young Girls" was my favorite episode of Scream Queens so far. The only thing that held it back from utter perfection was the conspicuous absence of Niecy Nash.
Scream Queens Season 1 Episode 7 gave us what I'm sure many viewers were waiting for: a Jamie Lee Curtis showcase.
