[SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED TUESDAY NIGHT’S PREMIERE OF SCREAM QUEENS]

Tuesday night was the highly anticipated premiere of Fox’s Scream Queens, which features a huge cast that includes two very famous pop stars: Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas. Grande, who plays Kappa minion Chanel No. 2, perished at the end of the first hour in a hilarious sequence which found her in a text battle with the Red Devil. But don’t mourn her yet, SQ watchers — she’ll be back.

“She comes back I believe in episode 6 and maybe more,” reveals co-creator Ryan Murphy. “She’s recurring definitely. Everyone thinks she’s gone but she’s not gone.” We’re just not sure how exactly she’s returning. Teases Murphy, “I wouldn’t say ghost. Nothing you think is happening is happening on the show. You think some people are dead — they’re not dead.”

Speaking of not being dead, it appeared that Jonas’ frat bro Boone had also fallen under the Red Devil’s knife but the twist at the end of the premiere revealed that he was actually working with the killer. 

“I can tell you that he is a part of the team of people involved in this master revenge plan,” says Jonas. “His history with it goes very, very deep.” Boone will return later this season but will look a little different. Says Murphy, laughing, “One of my favorite things is that he’s spying and traveling around the campus dressed incognito as Joaquin Phoenix.”
