That’s right—Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) completely loses and it kills Audrey (Bex Taylor Klaus), Noah (John Karna) and Kieran (Amadeus Serafini)—or did she?

Not really, she was only having a nightmare.

But it’s safe to say that finding out Audrey was responsible for bringing Piper (Amelia Rose Blaire) into their lives was the final straw for Emma—and now she’s completely losing it.

Maggie (Tracy Middendorf) wakes her up in the kitchen—and she’s holding the knife from her nightmare.

On the other hand, Brooke (Carlson Young) wakes up to Gustavo (Santiago Segura) in her bed, watching her sleep. Not creepy at all, right?

He’s apparently not too creepy for Brooke, because the pair shares another kiss.

Emma tells Brooke and Kieran—who feel equally betrayed. The trio is also furious at Noah for not telling them the truth.

Audrey is now completely consumed by guilt even more than before since her friends know. She tries to reach out to Emma, but she doesn’t want to hear it. After yelling at each other in the hallway, Emma shoves her into a locker.

Kieran insists that they skip school and helps Emma get her things from her locker—where they discover one of Ms. Lang’s (Austin Highsmith) tapes about her.

Noah is incredibly confused that the recording of Audrey was emailed to Emma. He gets in an argument with Audrey over it and refuses to believe her suggestion that Zoe (Kiana Ledè) was the mystery sender.

That is, until he calls his best friend and girlfriend to his room to figure out what happened. She swears that she only emailed it to herself, but evidence proves otherwise.

In a shocking turn of events, Noah tells Zoe that it doesn’t matter and loses his virginity to her after Audrey leaves.

The Phoenix incident is finally revealed to Maggie after Miguel (Anthony Ruivivar) can’t calm down at the thought of his son being the new Brandon James. It turns out Gustavo “accidentally” shot his best friend in the face with his father’s gun.

Disturbingly, Miguel says when he arrived on the scene, Gustavo was “cool as a cucumber” and drawing his friend’s dead body

Kieran and Emma visit Ms. Lang at the hospital—who completely panics at the sight of Emma. Outside of her room, they notice a bunch of daisies being delivered.

Remember, Brandon James called Emma’s mom “Daisy,” so the choice of flowers is significant. Kieran steals the card from the daisies as they sit at the front desk.

“Krissy, feel better,” the card says. “Love, Piper.”

Wait—what? How does Piper know her? And most importantly, how is a dead person sending flowers?

After stealing her keys, the teens break into her house and discover that Ms. Lang met Piper at Blessed Sisters—a school turned foster home/insane asylum.

The location was shut down after an abuse scandal so—doing the most logical thing possible—they break into the abandoned building.

However, it’s not so abandoned after all. Someone was a step ahead of them and is throwing a “Face the Mask” party—and everyone is wearing the Brandon James mask.

Unaware of the situation unfolding, Audrey gets a call that his days are numbered now that he’s no longer a virgin. She can’t get to the party fast enough to try to save her best friend.

At the party, Emma realizes that Haley (Mary Katherine Duhon) is working with—or possibly dating—the killer.

Minutes later, Haley is approached by who she thinks is her boyfriend. She harmlessly flirts with him—until he pulls a knife on her. As her friends party the night away, she is brutally murdered.

While looking for Kieran and her other friends, Emma runs into Audrey. They put their differences aside for the moment after Audrey tells her about the killer’s latest threat.

As they continue the search for their friends, they find Piper’s decomposed body rocking in a chair. They realize that the new killer is after them because they both killed Piper. So, who wants revenge for her death?

In yet another bloody—and dramatic—reveal, Miguel discovers Haley’s bloodied body strung from a wall as the episode comes to a close.

This might have been my favorite episode of the season thus far. Bringing Piper back (in some capacity) was a twist that I wasn’t expecting, but it was also essential to further plot development.

It will be interesting to see how the Lakewood Five move forward with their investigations in the final episodes—and who else will bite the dust before then.
