In present day, Grace Gardner attends Wallace University and plans to join Kappa Kappa Tau to honor her mother, who was once a member. Dean Cathy Munsch attempts to shut down KKT, threatening to revoke the charter, due to president Chanel Oberlin's rude behavior and suspected assault on her predecessor, Melanie Dorkus. Kappa is forced to accept anyone who wishes to join; this lowers Chanel's popularity and her boyfriend, Chad Radwell, ends their relationship. Ms. Bean, Kappa's housemaid, is killed via deep fryer; her body is hidden in the house's storage freezer. Grace joins forces with Pete Martinez, an investigative reporter, to take down Chanel and restore KKT's reputation. Ms. Bean's body disappears and Chanel realizes something strange is going on.

Meanwhile, Grace and Pete develop a relationship, and Grace finds a secret room where the leaders of Kappa hide their greatest secrets, and learns that in 1995 a pledge bled to death due to the sisters' neglect after giving birth to a child, which then disappeared, and that Munsch supposedly covered up the incident. Grace finds the Red Devil costume in Pete's closet and becomes convinced he's both the killer and the child of the pledge that died 20 years prior.

Denise is convinced that there are two Red Devils, Zayday being one of them, while Grace believes Chad is responsible.

From the acting to the costuming to the writing, everything about this concept and execution works. Scream Queens is as funny and self-aware as it needs to be to not bore audiences, but also offers up enough mystery and intrigue to keep even the biggest skeptic entertained." The Telegraph also gave a positive review, awarding the show four stars out of five. They commented that the show pummels "the viewer into submission with sheer, rictus-grinning relentlessness" and praised it for being "shiny, gory and whip-smart."
