Scream VI | Questions and Answers
Was Kirby really crazy or did Bailey just make that up?
Kirby did lose her job for poor mental health. But she was never Ghostface. The reason Bailey wanted to know more about Kirby is because Bailey was Ghostface so needed as much information about this wildcard as he could get. This detail also allows the filmmakers to, for a brief bit, misdirect the audience.
Who was the Ghostface in the convenience store?
I imagine that because this version of Ghostface was so good with firearms that it had to be Wayne Bailey. After all, he was a police officer. His bearing and demeanor and strength don’t really fit Ethan or Quinn. But the issue was that Bailey was just at a crime scene in capacity as a detective. So that means he’d have to leave the scene, change into the robe, then attack the girls. It’s logistically probably, just a bit complicated. But we don’t know how long it was between the phone call with Bailey and when the girls left the apartment. Sam actually has a completely different top on. So that points to at least a few minutes if not longer. Ethan is completely unaccounted for at this time. So you can make the case for him. I wouldn’t. But you could.
Does Gale live?
Yeah, we’re told she’s going to be okay. We don’t know if she’ll be back for another movie. But she definitely survived this one.
Are all the statements about family a reference to the Fast and Furious franchise?
Given how meta and self-aware the Scream series is and the emphasis of it becoming a franchise…I wouldn’t put it past them wanting to be like the horror version of Fast and Furious and making subtle nods to that through the whole “family” joke.
Is Scream VI a remake of Scream 2?
For the most part. I’d call it more of an evolution of Scream 2. It sticks to some of the major beats: college, finale takes place in a theater, Ghostface is the grieving parent of the previous Ghostface. So while remaining true to some of the core aspects of Scream 2, Scream VI really found its own direction as it brought in elements of the franchise.
