Most things on Scream Queens are straight from the imaginations of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan (why their minds are so twisted and disturbed is a whole other story though). However, last night’s episode 7, “Beware Of Young Girls,” was actually based on a real-life love triangle.
*Here’s your spoiler warning!*
We found out that one of the seemingly many killers at Wallace University is Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) herself. At the end of the episode, she admits that she used the cover of the other murders on campus to take out her ex-husband who left her years ago for a former Kappa Kappa Tau member, Feather McCarthy (Tavi Gevinson).
The scariest part of this story wasn’t even in the episode.
You know the creepy song that played at the end of the episode – “Beware of Young Girls”? That song was written in 1970 by songwriter Dory Previn who discovered in 1969 that her husband Andre was having an affair with a 23-year-old by the name of Mia Farrow. Yes, that Mia Farrow. Note the similarity in appearance between Feather and Mia.
Farrow was pregnant with twin boys and ended up marrying Andre after he separated from Dory.
Dory didn’t take it all so well. She suffered a breakdown, entered a psychiatric hospital where she endured electroconvulsive therapy, and wrote the song “Beware of Young Girls,” which played at the end of tonight’s episode. Chills.
Karma struck back in a way when Farrow later married Woody Allen who ended up falling in love with their adopted daughter. As they say, she’s a bitch.
Things ended differently in the show. Dean Munsch spent some time in the asylum, but actually enjoyed her time off with some painting. Knowing how lazy the detective on the case is and that Grace and Pete would link the evidence to Feather, she was able to easily frame the innocent girl for the crime. We then see Feather end up in a straightjacket while Munsch is free.
Yikes…that Dean Munsch is a crafty one who might just be capable of every one of those murders.
