Who on Earth could the killer (or killers) be?
First thing we must do is deconstruct the typical Scream characteristics:
Most importantly, it is self-aware.
All films except the third provide a killing duo. So, that can be a certain possibility for the series.
All films repeat the same character types:
Sidney, the victim
Randy, the horror film enthusiast friend
Gale, the ambitious reporter
Duey, the cop
Other minor characters (not all repeated but present in the series include the missing father, the mother and her incredibly complicated past, and the suspicious boyfriend.
The films never repeata character type for the killer.
Scream 1 – the boyfriend and the creepy friend
Scream 2 – a “reporter”/ the boyfriend’s vengeful mother and a horror enthusiast.
Scream 3 – Sidney’s secret half-brother/film director.
Scream 4 – the remake of the Randy and the remake of Sidney . (True, she is a relative as well, but that only gives the remake Sidney a connection to the true Sidney.)
With this in mind, we can naturally rule out these character types for the series.
Here is what we know about the killer:
He/she knows every secret in town, including the identity of the mysterious “Daisy”.
He/she is incredibly tech savvy with skills in hacking computers and security cameras.
He/she is strong and fit.
He/she is obsessed with Emma and her mother.
He/she began the murders directly after an act of cyber bullying, which also happened to be after the sheriff’s son came to town.
