Hester (Lea Michele), the former killer clad at Red Devil and Zayday (Keke Palmer) will also be working for Munsch in the creepy hospital. Meanwhile, Dr Cascade, will get involved as Lourd's Chanel #3 suffers from a strange medical condition and becomes a suspect after a series of gruesome murders start unfolding at the hospital.
