[S1E13] The Final Girl(s)

"The Final Girl(s)" is the thirteenth and final episode of the first season of the black comedy slasher television series Scream Queens. It premiered on December 8, 2015 on Fox along with the previous episode, "Dorkus", as the two-hour season finale.[1][2] It was directed by Brad Falchuk, and written by Falchuk, Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan. The episode focuses on the last remaining "Red Devil" killer, and how the revelation impacts the characters' fates.

[S1E13] The Final Girl(s)

"The Final Girl(s)", along with the previous episode "Dorkus" as the special two-hour season finale, was watched by a total of 2.53 million U.S. viewers and got a 0.9/3 rating/share in the 18-49 adult demographic.[5]

The two-hour finale received mixed reviews from critics and audiences alike, with criticism aimed mostly towards the reveal of the final "Red Devil" killer. The A.V. Club's LaToya Ferguson rated the episode along with "Dorkus" and gave it a C rating, criticizing it for drawing out the reveal and for putting too much focus on the least interesting characters.[6]

Andrea (Laurie Holden) shockingly returns in a moment straight out of the final minutes from season two. As she runs away from Hershel's burning farm, she was initially rescued by a cloaked woman, who was later revealed to be Michonne.

Since the season eight finale, it's appeared as if the series has tried to set Negan upon a redemption arc. When Kang took over as showrunner, she locked Negan in a cell for a good portion of season nine to refocus the show on its core characters.

Whether or not viewers will see him differently will remain to be seen, but having Michonne, a character that fans deeply respect and love, deliver a speech to Rick, Rosita, Daryl, and more on Sunday's episode about how they ruthlessly slaughtered some of Negan's group members in their sleep, may help more long-time fans finally see the season seven premiere from a different perspective.

And that's most likely what AMC wants. Negan's still a big part of "The Walking Dead" after all. He recently killed the Whisperer leader under Carol's orders and the show has already been trying to get fans to empathize more with Negan by referencing the controversial season seven premiere and bringing up Negan's wife. If Negan's going to be sticking around, AMC will want to make sure fans can finally get behind the character in the way they have fallen in love with Rick, Daryl, and Carol, no matter some of his past transgressions.

This is the first interaction Rick and Michonne have ever had on season three, episode six. On the season three finale, Rick told Michonne he only let her into the prison because of the baby formula. When she calls his bluff, Rick coyly says it "must have been something else, then."

Is this where they will find Rick? The Commonwealth of the comics has amenities only dreamed of in places like Alexandria and the Hilltop. It has vehicles, clinics, its own industries, an army of armored guards with advanced weaponry, and even a sports stadium. The settlement is the closest society has come to rebuilding the civilization that was lost. It would certainly have the medical resources to save Rick from his injuries, such as the ventilator giving the Sheriff oxygen in his final scene on the show.

We begin the season 1 finale of For Life with Wallace in prison lock-down and finding all of his belongings gone. Given he needs that to prep his case, it certainly poses another problem for him to tackle. At the same time, Glen Maskins tries to stifle the headache of Wallace getting his retrial and is encouraged to speak to Cyrus and obtain the footage of the riot inside the prison.

Despite the fact that "Epitaph One" never aired in its country of origin, it was widely received by viewers and critics alike as one of the best episodes of the entire series, and it proved vitally important to the plot arc of the second and final season of Dollhouse. "Epitaph One" has been so highly praised, in fact, that in 2010 it was nominated for the hugely prestigious Hugo Award (an annual awards ceremony for the best of science fiction and fantasy projects over the course of that year) in the category of Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form.[1]

Since "Epitaph One" wasn't part of Fox's 13-episode deal with 20th Century Fox Television, it was not expected to air on Fox, since Fox didn't pay for the production of the episode. Tim Minear said that the producers "always knew it would be for the DVD for sure" and that it was written as "a standalone kind of coda episode", not as a season finale.

After Casey is finally released from his interrogation, he tracks down Morgan, forcing the location of the Marlin from him, and hurries to the Wienerlicious. He rescues Sarah from the freezer, who tells him Lizzie planted the bugs and that Conway arrested Chuck. They report in to Beckman with the information, who has decided to extract Chuck anyway. Sarah and Casey are ordered to track down Lizzie. Sarah objects but Casey accepts the General's instructions. After they break contact with Beckman, he tells Sarah he'll take care of Lizzie while she tracks down Chuck.

They are then ambushed by Lizzie, who kills Longshore and shoots Sarah's gun from her hand. Sarah and Chuck take cover while Lizzie gloats about knowing that Chuck is the Intersect but she hasn't told her superiors. She also has Awesome's ring for Ellie. Because the worst that Fulcrum could do to Chuck is torture, Sarah advises that he distract Lizzie. Chuck then runs away from her back to the helipad. With Lizzie pointing her guns at him, he tries bargaining better accommodations than what the CIA can provide, but Lizzie isn't interested in negotiating, as she is the one with the guns. It is then that Sarah sneaks up on Lizzie and the two engage in another fight. The two are again evenly matched and the fight takes them dangerously close to the edge of the building. Casey finally arrives to back Sarah up only to watch the two women plummet over the side. They land safely in a garbage bin, where Lizzie is knocked unconscious. Casey comments, "Had a feeling that girl was dirty."

The next morning, Big Mike arrives at the store the next morning to find that everything is back, including his Marlin, which is now held together by duct tape. Meanwhile, Chuck and Sarah are still searching the Dumpster where she and Lizzie fell. Sarah insists that when Lizzie was taken in, she only had the receiver on her, and suggests that perhaps it's better that they replace the ring. Chuck refuses to give up, " was Awesome's great-granny's ring, and it's going to be my sister's, okay, even if its covered in coffee grounds and miscellaneous DNA," and finally manages to find it. The two rush back to Chuck's apartment, where he enters in through his window to give Devon the ring. Chuck then leaves to watch from outside with Sarah while Awesome proposes.

Sarah tells Chuck he's safe for now and that the extraction order has been canceled. Chuck asks her to come inside to congratulate Ellie, but Sarah tells him that it's a family moment. He says, "I know," before finally going in alone.

While the series finale will undoubtedly be a bittersweet time for the Star-Fam, we can all take comfort in the fact that the show will have a satisfying ending, as Brec Bassinger confirmed that showrunner Geoff Johns shot two endings just in case The CW decided not to renew it.

With their love for each other growing stronger, David finally agrees to tell Kathryn about his relationship with Mary Margaret and put an end to his loveless marriage. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, while runaway groom Prince Charming searches for Snow White, he agrees to aid Abigail on a dangerous mission to recover something precious that was lost to her.[1]
