Tonight’s Episode Will Continue the Saga of Mr. Jingles, The Resurrected Night Stalker & Montana’s Vendetta Against Brooke
Last week’s episode ended on a shocking cliffhanger, after the Night Stalker was resurrected at the end of the episode. For those who need a recap, earlier in the episode, the Night Stalker and Mr. Jingles were involved in a brutal, violent brawl, before Mr. Jingles picked the Night Stalker up by the throat and put his head through a tree branch, killing him instantly. However, some mysterious supernatural magic brought the serial killer back to life, much to Fake Rita’s horror, which we believe is likely connected to the appearance of the dead former campers.
Tonight’s episode will also see Mr. Jingles and Margaret face off after she admitted to framing him for the murders she committed 14 years ago. The promo above sees Mr. Jingles grab Margaret by the throat, saying “I’m going to rip you apart,” while Montana hasn’t let the Night Stalker’s death deter her from seeking revenge on Brooke. She can be seen knocking her out with a metal pipe in the preview above, saying “it’ll all be over soon.”
Another clip shows Rita admitting to letting Mr. Jingles loose, much to Xavier’s dismay. “You did this to me?” Xavier shouts at Rita. “Look at my face! It’s your fault I’ll never be on the cover of TV Guide!” He then lunges at her with a knife, so fans have plenty of shocking twists and turns and likely even more slasher bloodshed to look forward to tonight.
Tune in Wednesdays at 10/9c on FX to see how it all unfolds. In the meantime, you can read a full recap of last week’s episode below, and check out a few of our favorite fan theories here.
