Halloween 2022: Day 15

Scream S02E12

The climax of the season sees…not much surprising, really. Our characters are pretty much the same as they were at the beginning of the season, just with more instances of trauma. The mystery is solved, and it turns out to be the person we all suspected.

The really surprising thing is that the writers clearly thought they could keep going with this story for another season. We never get to see what tired retread they would have come up with, because the show’s third season is a soft reboot with a new cast and setting. There is still a two-part Halloween special with this cast, and maybe the time constraint will make them deliver a more satisfying story? We’ll see.
