In the second episode – Warts and All – Brock went on a movie date with Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) and his mischievous hand groped her. But before Brock could apologise, Chanel said she enjoyed the 'manhandling'. The promo of the upcoming episode hints at an impending wedding of Roberts' character. However, it is not clear whether she is getting married to Brock or Chad.

Stamos' character may hold a vital clue to the killer, who is roaming loose inside Cathy Munsch's hospital and is on a killing spree. The official synopsis suggests that Munsch, Chanel and Special Agent Denise will seek Hester's help in unmasking the villain.

Their visit turns fruitful as she offers them some background information revealing that the killer is connected with the Halloween massacre that happened 30 years ago. It remains to be seen, how helpful is Hester, who herself has a dark history of serial killing at the Wallace University sorority house.

The official synopsis of Handidates reads: Determined to find out who the killer is Dean Munsch, Denise, and the Chanels question Hester, as well as the sole survivor (guest star Alec Mapa) of the Halloween massacre. Chad accuses Brock of being the killer and makes a shocking proposal to Chanel. Meanwhile, a new patient with an outrageous disorder (guest star Cheri Oteri) leads Chanel #3 and Cassidy to grow closer, and another victim crashes a celebration.

While everyone inside the hospital is a suspect, the speculations are high that either Brock or Dr Cassidy Cascade (Taylor Lautner) is the killer, who wears a mask with horns and leaves a trail of green slime after each of his killings.

The Ryan Murphy-created series will return on Tuesday (11 October) on Fox.
