It's a wrap.
After nine bloody murders and a whole lot of shrieking, Season 1 of “Scream” ended this week with a shocking finale: Turns out, sweet 'n innocent podcaster Piper was the one slaughtering Lakewood residents all along.
In true murder-mystery fashion, though, the episode left some loose ends -- hey, Audrey, you want to explain yourself? -- that already have us pondering what could possibly be in store for Season 2. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let's have a moment of silence for all those who perished thusfar. To refresh your memory, here's a list of every poor soul who met their maker this season (RIP, guys!):
We didn’t know the resident popular guy/schemer/Nina’s boy toy for very long, but he sure made a lasting impression: The second time we saw him, his bloody head was bobbing up in a hot tub.
After successfully harassing Audrey and Rachael, Lakewood's Queen Bee planned to relax with a quiet evening at home -- but after a heart-stopping chase scene, Nina ended up face-down in the pool.
A troubled girl who was the victim of a cruel prank, Rachael seemed to find solace in Audrey -- until the killer hanged her from a second-story balcony.
The prison guard
When an officer was killed right outside of Mr. Branson's jail cell, were weren't just shocked by all that blood: His death managed to make the wayward teacher look even more guilty -- all while helping to introduce a stunning plot twist.
In one of the season's most gag-worthy moments, Maggie's beau was gruesomely disemboweled.
Wrong place, wrong time: He was stabbed and left for dead at Brooke’s house party. Who knew that using the restroom could be so dangerous?
This was one death we weren’t exactly unhappy about: After revealing herself as Brandon James' offspring (and Emma's half-sister, and umm, the killer), Piper went in for Maggie and Em. Audrey came to the rescue with a well-aimed bullet; when Piper managed to survive that, Emma took her out with one last shot. See ya, sis!
