I think this might have been my favourite episode so far. I always anticipate Halloween-type episodes and this one didn't disappoint. It was thoroughly entertaining and there were so many reasons why I loved it. Firstly though, the halloween costumes of being the wives of fallen presidents was pretty original on Chanel's part, so go her! But Chanel number 5 isn't happy about her choice, further showing her anger problems. Hester's random outburst of "there's the door bitch" was so weird but funny. Hester, sorry, Chanel number 6 is proving funnier by the episode. The best part about the opening minutes though was Chad's amazingly hilarious speech which made absolutely no sense but in a weird way, it did. And the fact that both Denise and the Dean have slept with him just makes him even funnier and such a man whore!

Loved the new opening credits too actually, despite the screaming getting a little annoying by the end of it. We further explore Hester in this episode too and the kind of manipulation she is doing to the girls, especially Chanel number 5. She plays her like a fiddle and even the main Chanel, which kind of shows just how powerful Hester is at pulling strings. She gets Chanel arrested and pins it on Chanel number 5, which is quite genius actually. It was quite funny how Chanel had an Asian on retainer for tests and such, and I was quite surprised when she got arrested for murder then bailed out the same day. It looks like the judicial system is non-existent in this show, but if you start looking at it like the satire it is, then you can appreciate the humour. It's silly, it's over-the-top, but above all it thoroughly entertains.

The pumpkin patch and Shining maze was extraordinary - Chanel really outdid herself. I love, love, love the scene with Chanel number 5, Roger and Dodger being attacked by the Red Devil and chased through the maze. It was really quite exciting and I wasn't sure if any of them were going to survive. I got a little scared for the first time on this show haha. It was a little ridiculous how Roger and Dodger started bickering and made Chanel 5 choose which of the brothers to stay with. At least Dodger will never find out that Chanel number 5 rubs one out to Dora the Explorer which, by the way, is totally bizarre. I mean like what the f*ck! The tension between the Chanels is pretty much fever pitch and they might even kill each other before the Red Devil can touch a hair on their heads.

Another scene I really loved was when Denise, Gigi, Grace, Pete and Wes were in that place where the Red Devil's lair is. It was pretty weird how they managed to find it but kudos to them. Denise and Gigi make a great pair, and of course we all love Denise. I love her to bits. The whole "I might start farting" was so extreme and classic Denise. Everything that came out of her mouth was classic Denise. I was so worried when the lights went out and the Red Devil was in the room with the night vision glasses and was behind her. I wouldn't have minded Gigi dying but not my Denise! Fortunately neither died, but instead we had a very suspicious escape for the Red Devil that made me question Gigi from the moment they came back to the room and she said she was hit with a baseball bat.

Gigi is the carer of the 1995 baby, we know that. But what we now have confirmation of is that she is pulling the strings of the whole operation. The Red Devil has to be that 1995 baby, but who is he, or she? And is there more than one Red Devil, as in one was attacking Chanel number five and the other one at the lair? Or is it the same person, as Chanel number five said, it was three hours since she was attacked when Zayday suddenly returns unharmed. I must say though it was nice to see Zayday back without a scratch and ready to fight for her presidency. Her story was so weird and the fact that the Red Devil loves her is another handy little fact that could help us identify the killer (or one of the killers). What is going on? I am still lost a bit but I'm looking forward to solving this mystery.

EPISODE VERDICT

There were so many amazing moments in this episode, with two of them being the Shining Maze attack and the Night Vision scene. This was just part one of a Halloween extravaganza (I think) and I love these kinds of episodes. Great developments made in the killer department and knowing Gigi is part of it helps move things along while we still remain in the dark. Favourite episode to date I think! There is one question I'd like to ask though - where the hell is Nick Jonas?!

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
