WARNING: This article will contain spoilers for both the first season of MTV’s “Scream” and for the upcoming second season. Read on to learn more about what happened in the season finale, and to learn more about the second season.
The season finale of the first season of MTV’s adaptation of the cult favorite film franchise, “Scream,” had fans and viewers at the edges of their seats for the entire episode.
First of all, it was revealed that the killer or the mastermind behind the new Ghostface of Lakewood was none other than podcaster Piper Shaw (Amelia Rose Blair), the Gale Weathers of the series. She turned out to be Emma Duval’s (Willa Fitzgerald) older sister and Brandon James’ daughter with Maggie or Daisy Duval (Traci Middendorf), who was given up for adoption at birth.
However, thanks to the timely intervention of Audrey Jensen (Bex Taylor-Klaus), Piper is no longer a threat to anyone as she, just like her father, met her end at the bottom of the lake. Rest assured, however, that Piper will not be coming back at all. Executive producer Jill Blotevogel, according to her post-mortem interview with Entertainment Weekly, has confirmed that Piper is very much dead.
The end of the series, however, revealed that Audrey was in contact with Piper the entire time. Audrey was seen burning several envelopes which contained her correspondence with her.
Blotevogel confirmed that Audrey definitely had a hand in something, but neither confirmed nor denied that Audrey was in fact Piper’s partner the entire time. She went on to tease that Piper might have more than one assistant. The second season, which will be stated by the ever reliable narrator, Noah Foster, will focus on who was behind the mask when Piper and Will Belmont (Connor Weil) were attacked.
She also went on to say that Emma will be more proactive in the second season, and thanks to that, her family’s past, and the specifics with regards to her absent father, Kevin Duval (Tom Everett Scott), will be revealed.
This and the fact that Emma’s and the past of other characters, such as Audrey’s involvement in matters, will be tackled, so that all the back stories will be out in the open, was confirmed by Blotevogel when asked about the possible return of Emma’s father by Entertainment Weekly for their Spoiler Room column.
However, when asked whether Kevin could be blamed for everything that has happened since then, Blotevoget chose not to comment.
Kevin Duvall was last seen in a dream sequence that Emma had while in the hospital following Will’s death; and in a flashback scene in which Emma remembered that her father had left them after he discovered that Daisy had had a child with Brandon James.
