- —Chanel #5 [src]
Chanel #5 is the youngest of the Chanel's. She is shown to be the most normal out of all the Chanel's, because she is nice, but has her angry moments that could lead to harmful things towards others. At the end of Season One, she, Chanel Oberlin, and Chanel #3 are sentenced to life at the Palmer Insane Asylum after being framed for the Red Devil murders by Hester Ulrich. Later, the girls are acquitted of the murder charges, but are disowned by their families. In Season Two, they are hired by Cathy Munsch to work as medical students in her hospital, where yet another series of murders take place. Afterwards, Cathy leaves the hospital with #5 and Zayday Williams in charge.
She is portrayed by Abigail Breslin.
Chanel Oberlin's minions (along with Chanel #2 and Chanel #3), who calls her Chanel #5 as she does not know her real name and does not want to. She is part of the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority. During her first scene, she is watching Chanel #1 sleeping with the other Chanels and after she wakes up, #5 shows her a bag to use which #1 rejects. After #2 leaves for a colonic, #5 is present when Chanel makes fun of Ms. Bean while she is cleaning the floor of the house of Kappa Kappa Tau. #3 says that all the things #1 says are hilarious, and #1 thanks her. #5 proceeds to say that #1 has the ability to tell other people what they need to hear. #1 turns at her and asks if Chanel pulled down her panties and asked her to roll a compliment up her butt, and goes on to say that no one likes a suck-up, and this makes #5 swallow her anger.
Later, at the KKT rush party, #5 is seen chatting with Deb #1 and Deb #2 when Dean Cathy Munsch announces that this year every girl who wishes to become a pledge will be accepted. #5 is shocked and screams that she cannot do that, and tries to keep her potential pledge friends to stay but they leave. Quickly, Chanel #5 goes with Chanel #1 to tell her the big news, but she forgot to knock the door so #5 follows the rules to slap herself. Scenes later, #2, #3, and #5 notify #1 that there's a "creepy collage" in Ms. Bean's room. #1 gets really angry and wants to kill Ms. Bean, but this is just an evil plan that no one knows about so the new Kappa pledges get scared and quit the sorority. Accidentally, #1 really kills Ms. Bean, so Chanel #5 and the other Kappa sisters get really scared. Grace Gardner attempts to tell the police what Chanel Oberlin did, but she blackmails #5 and most of the other members to say that Grace was the one who killed Ms. Bean if she dares to say a word. They all later put Ms. Bean's dead body in a freezer.
Subsequently, the Chanels are doing a blood oath to promise to not say what they witnessed earlier, but #2 reveals that she is stressed that they are gonna get caught by the authorities and decided to leave and go home, but while packing she is murdered by Red Devil. When the Chanels discover her death, they decide to keep the body in that room until they know what to do with it. The "hell week" from their sorority begins, but #1 goes for a coffee with Grace and leaves #5 in charge. Chanel #3 and Chanel #5 bury Hester, Zayday, Sam, Jennifer and Tiffany up to their heads. They leave them alone to spend the night buried, but Red Devil later appears with a lawnmower and drives towards the girls. Since she is deaf, Tiffany does not notice the Red Devil until it is too late, and she ends up getting her head mowed off.
Chanel #5 is present when dean Cathy Munsch introduces Detective Chisolm to the Kappa Kappa Tau girls. She is not very pleased when the dean tells them that they cannot go out of the campus. After Gigi gives the idea of everyone staying in the house to keep an eye on each other, Grace agrees but #5 says that is an insane idea, because pledges cannot move into the house.
The Chanels later discuss they should do something with #2's body soon before Detective Chisolm finds it. Chanel #5 says that they should feed a pig with her body, and Chanel #3 thinks they should give her as food to one of her uncle's animals of his farm, but #1 rejects both ideas. Suddenly, Hester Ulrich appears behind them and says that she knows what they should do because she is obsessed with death. Hester gives the insane ideas of disfiguring her face, making incisions in her legs and drain all bodily fluids, putting her in food processor or boning her, but #1 decides to put her in the same freezer where they put Ms. Bean's body. At the freezer, Hester says to them if she can call them "Mom" because she feels so protected by the three of them. The Chanels find it extremely weird, but ultimately accept so she can stop talking, but then says to call all of the Chanels "Mom". Gigi then introduces the new security guard, Denise Hemphill, to the Chanels, whom has rather odd methods in protecting the girls from the killer.
The Chanels then continue their reign of terror as they continue "Hell Week" for the new pledges. They make the girls clean the sorority house's floor with toothbrushes. Afterwards, Boone goes talk to The Chanels and says to Chanel Oberlin that he knows that she is going to tell everyone about his real sexuality and ruin his reputation, because she found out about his homosexuality scenes before. Boone explains that he wants to come out on his own and later join Kappa Kappa Tau, and this makes The Chanels laugh. Chanel #5 and Chanel #3 decline his offers really quick, but Chanel later thinks it is a good idea because having all the media looking at her as the first sorority president who accepted a gay man into her sorority will make her even more popular. #5 starts to freak out and says to Chanel that she lost her mind because having a gay man in their sorority would hurt the house and he would steal their makeup and toiletries. She threats Boone saying that if he brings shame to Chanel #1's life and Kappa house she would destroy him. Boone later says that he knows they will consider his offer and leaves the place.
Chanel is writing things on bellies of the Kappa pledges, but later is attacked by Red Devil and Chanel #5 seems worried for her. The Kappa girls go to check if the Red Devil is still in the house. When they enter to a room, they see "SLUTS WILL DIE" written on the wall and scream horrified. In the last "Hell Week" dinner, the Kappa girls are fighting about who is the killer, but they are interrupted by Denise Hemphill and Chad Radwell announcing that Shondell and Boone are dead, leaving Chanel #5 preoccupied.
Chanel Oberlin and Chanel #5 are in the freezer arguing after Chanel #2's body is missing. #5 explains that she was bored and went to the freezer to find that #2's corpse disappeared. She also says that the previous night she had an "amazing threesome" with twin brothers Dodger and Roger, and she would rather have sex with them than try to discover who the killer is. #1 is shocked when #5 says that she does not care what happened to #2, because that's #1's problem, and when people start noticing that she is missing they will start snooping about Kappa Kappa Tau. After Chanel #5 leaves the freezer room, and #1 screams that she will destroy her and calls her bitch. Later, #5 is present when Dean Munsch introduces to the students the new school mascot, Coney, which disappointingly gets no applause from the crowd.
In the living room at Kappa house, Grace and Zayday ask #5 if she knows something about the secret affair that Chanel #2 had with Chad Radwell, that they discovered in previous scenes. #5 says that she cannot believe that Chad never told her, because she was dating him too. Chanel #3 joins the conversation and says that she went out with him too last year. Shocked, Grace and Zayday ask why they did that to her friend Chanel, because Chad is her ex-boyfriend. #5 explains that it was just one date and that it was really weird because he made her look at him playing with his knife collection the whole time, but she also slept with him. Chanel Oberlin interrupts the conversation to introduce them the new member of The Chanels, Hester Ulrich, who got a makeover by Chanel. #5 gets angry and says that she cannot turn a pledge into a Chanel, but #1 says that she is running out of minions now that two Chanels are dead. Chanel #5 gets even more freaked outand says that she will not tolerate this, because #1 has no respect for any of the Kappa members and the rules of the house, so she does not deserve to be president, and Zayday agrees with her. Gigi Caldwell and the Dean Cathy Munsch enter to the house and say that they are moving in to keep an eye on them, and this makes #5 even more frightened about Kappa's future. Scenes later, after Gigi and Wes Gardner get attacked by Red Devil, Chanel #5 and the other girls are scared.
Chanel #5 briefly appears at the "Chanel-o-ween" video at the beginning of the episode, preparing the presents for Chanel Oberlin's fans. After Zayday Williams announces that she is going to run for president of Kappa house and will make a Halloween party to raise money for sickle cell anemia to show that she is a serious candidate, #5 is seen really shocked. This makes Chanel #1 be worried about her position in the house as president, so she is really sad in her closet sharpening knives. #5 and #3 comfort her giving her the idea of making a party at a haunted pumpkin patch that will raise money for the "black hairy tongue" disease, so this will make everyone vote for Chanel at the elections. This makes #1 very grateful and the three of them share a hug. While giving out the invitations for the party, #5 reveals that the main reason she joined Kappa was because people find obnoxious her style speaking and gesticulation, and being Kappa makes everyone forget about it. The Chanels are later eating cotton balls, so they will not gain weight, but Chanel #1 is tired of that and decides to go and get some pizza, but a guy named Tommy and his friend interrupt them saying really sexist comments, this makes the girls get angry and start to a fight with them, kicking and punching them. When the both guys are lying on the floor in pain, everyone starts to clap at the girls, celebrating what they did to defend their rights as women. At the end of the episode in Kappa house, Cathy Munsch and Detective Chisolm are naming the bodies that were found at Zayday's party in the Shady Lane house. They forgot to mention Chanel #2, so #5 reminds them about her. The Chanels meet Cliff Woo, a party planner who is set to organize Chanel's pumpkin patch for her Kappa Kappa Tau presidential campaign. #5 is unable to hire Led Zeppelin as musical guests for the party because one of them died, and #1 starts to scream at her saying that everything is her fault and that is tired of her lame excuses. The other girls later follow #1 to her closet, where she introduces them their Halloween costumes, wives of fallen presidents. Chanel tells #5 that she will go to the pumpkin patch as Mary Todd Lincoln, because she is most likely to end in an asylum because she is a psycho lunatic. #5 gets really angry and screams that she cannot take this anymore, that she is done with Chanel. #1 does not think she is meaning her words, because #5 has said multiple times in the past that she is done with Chanel and yet she is always there standing by her side. #1 puts an ultimatum, either she goes as Mary Todd Lincoln to the Halloween party or she can pack her things and leave. After getting not getting an answer from #5, Hester Ulrich screams "There's the door, bitch!", pointing at the door. With nothing else to do, #5 decides to leave.
After Cathy Munsch, Wes Gardner, and Gigi Caldwell make the Kappa Kappa Tau and the Dickie Dollar Scholars to reunite at the Kappa house because both houses are the most likely to be attacked by Red Devil. Everyone starts talking about Zayday's abduction and #5 silences them all to ask Dean Munsch if she is closing down the campus because of the killer, for which Munsch responds yes. All of them starts screaming of despair because Halloween is the greatest night of the year, and now the pumpkin patch party is over.Chanel #5 is cooking some nail cookies as revenge for the neighborhood children that dress-up for Halloween with iconic Chanel #1 looks that #5 invented in reality. Hester Ulrich comes into the kitchen and asks why she is hurting and getting back at the children when she can actually hurt Chanel. Confused, Chanel #5 asks who's side is she on, because very recently she called her a bitch and showed her where the door was. Hester reveals that she is playing at double agent, and tells her that she has an idea. They both enter to Jennifer's room to discover that she has an obsession with ants, and Hester tells her about her plan of destroying Chanel by making Zayday the new president of the sorority. At first, Jennifer is not sure about joining their alliance, but it is not until #5 and Hester show her Chanel's closet full of once-used-and-now-abused candles that she joins the plan. Later, after Chanel gets arrested by the police for the murderer of Ms. Bean, #5 watches how she is taken with the other Chanels and Jennifer. She is later present when the Kappa girls are fake-eating at lunch time.
After Chanel #3's dad pays Chanel Oberlin's bail, she returns to the house to discover that #5 is wearing her Halloween costume, Jackie Kennedy. #1 starts screaming that Hester told her that #5 said she was going to turn her in for killing Ms. Bean. Chanel #5 says that Hester set her a trap,, but #1 does not believe it. Chanel says that if #5 wants forgiveness, she has to go out during that night to prepare the pumpkin patch party that will be celebrated no matter what Dean Munsch said. #5 does not want to do it, because the killer will obviously be outside, but #1 says that if she does not do it then she will show her boyfriends Dodger and Roger the video that she has of #5 touching herself watching Dora the Explorer, revealing that she had cameras everywhere.Chanel #5 brings Roger and Dodger to the pumpkin patch with her, and the three of them start to light on all the candles inside the Halloween pumpkins, but the twins decide to enter to the maze that Chanel #1 ordered for her party and leave #5 alone. Red Devil appears behind #5, and she starts screaming. Dodger and Roger come back to protect her, and later the three of them get in the maze. They are running from the killer, until the brothers starts fighting and ask Chanel #5 who will she pick, because they are tired of sharing her. Desperate of getting out of there, #5 chooses Roger and leaves with him running. Dodger chooses another path of the maze where he is found by Red Devil. Chanel #5 and Roger start hearing Dodger's screams, and he wants to return for his brother but #5 does not let him because it is dangerous.
She is last seen when Chanel #1 is getting started with the voting process for the Kappa presidency without Zayday and Grace being there. #5 says that she is still very traumatized for what happened in the pumpkin patch. When they are about to start to vote, Zayday suddenly appears and reveals how she escaped of her Red Devil's kidnapping, saying that Red Devil did not do anything to her, just kept her there, gave her some flowers, and invited her dinner. #5 gets mad because it is unfair that the killer is in love with Zayday and not with her. Grace appears too and says that everything that Zayday said is true because she saw where the killer kept her locked.
Chanel #5 is seen when the Kappa Kappa Tau sisters are voting to choose who will be the new president of the sorority, Chanel Oberlin or Zayday Williams. When it is revealed by Jennifer that it is a tie, Chanel gets angry and blames #5 for it, saying that she is weird and an idiot for not ensuring that she would win the election, making #5 surprised and kinda sad. After Chanel leaves to her closet, #5 and #3 follow her only to discover that she was just acting because she wanted Zayday to win so she could be Red Devil's main target now, but now that they are both co-presidents her plan worked even better. #5 asks #1 if what she said to her was fake too, but #1 says that part was real. The three later return to the living room so Chanel can give Zayday the key of the storage room, which hides Kappa's darkest secrets. The next day, #5 is present when the girls decide to have a slumber party that night. Although #5 does not want it to happen, the majority of the girls are in favor.At night, the girls are playing spin the bottle and #5 witnesses the kiss between Hester and Jennifer, and Chanel #3 and Sam. After Sam and Jennifer say that every door and window of the house is locked, #5 checks if it is true and the window that she tries to open is locked. She freaks out because she hates being in small places, but Grace tells her that the house is 15,000 square feet. When all the lights turn off, all the girls start screaming. They light some candles and later watch #1 talking to Chad through the only working cell phone of the house, asking him to come and help them. After the Dickie Dollar Scholars arrive and Caulfield dies, they all start playing Truth or Dare. #1 asks #5 "truth or dare?", and #5 picks truth. Chanel asks if her vagina has teeth, but Chanel #5 denies it. Chanel keeps insisting that her vagina does have teeth, and #5 later leaves the room angry. Everyone is later seen dancing in the living room after #3 says to Sam to go to the basement alone as a dare.
Chanel and Chad finish playing Seven Minutes in Heaven, and it is Chanel #5 and her boyfriend Roger's turn. Both start kissing and he stops her saying how relieved he is of not having Dodger in his life anymore, because they were always together. He says that the only bad thing is that they both created an amazing clicking language that he will not be able to use anymore. Roger has the idea of teaching #5 the language and while he continues to talk, Chanel #5 sees the Red Devil behind him and Roger is shot three times with a nail gun and falls to the floor as the Red Devil continues to shoot him with the nail gun while #5 watches in horror. The killer continues to shoot him until running out of nails and leaves. Everyone enter to the room and they assume #5 and #6 are the killers (because Hester found Sam's dead body earlier). Chad later discover a tunnel in the room that connects the inside of the house with the outside, which the killer may have use to enter and leave.
The next day, #5 and #3 are in the bathroom, where #3 apologizes to her for Dodger and Roger's death, and #5 says she is sorry for Sam's murder. #3 says she loved Sam and #5 asks if she is a lesbian, which Chanel #3 denies saying that she is just in love with love, implying that she is pansexual. #5 starts crying and says that she felt like she won the lottery with Roger and Dodger and now she doubts that she will find another guy who will like her. #3 says that she will definitely find someone else that will love her for who she is because she is super cute. They later make a pact, that says that they will outlive Chanel together no matter what happens. At night, Chanel gives some pink nunchakus to all the Kappa sisters so they can defend of the killer so they do not lose anymore sisters. The girls start dancing, ending with the slumber party that they did not get to finish the other night. #5 wants to join #1 and #3's dancing, but #1 does not let her and tells her to stop. The Red Devil is later seen watching all the girls through the window, at the end of the episode.
During Chanel #2's funeral, #5 approaches to her coffin and says that it was really sad that she had to die before they found out about her real ethnicity. She later listens to Chanel Oberlin's farewell to #2. Later, Chanel is crying in her closet for the bad friends she has. The other Chanels come in to talk to her, with #1 mentioning that #2's body was incinerated and her rests were taken to Cape Canaveral. #5 says that she cannot stop thinking of Chad and #2 having sex. #3, #5, and #6 have the idea of contacting #2 through a Ouija board so she can ask for forgiveness. While trying to communicate with #2 from beyond the grave, #3 asks if #2 is there, and she says yes. To make sure it is her, #5 says they should ask her a question only she would know, and #1 asks if #5's vagina has teeth and #2 answers yes. #2 stops the game after the board says that Chad is cheating on her, which is later proven false.
The Chanels try to contact #2 again from the Ouija, and she answers. Chanel says that she is really done with her and thank her sarcastically for lying and saying that Chad is cheating on her with a goat (because Chanel discovered Chad in bed with a goat, but only because he is lactose intolerant and was waiting for the goat's milk), but #5 interrumpts her and says that #2 never said anything about a goat. After a series of questions, #5 suggests to stop playing because it is freaking her out, but #1 asks another question. "Who is killing everybody?", she asks and #2 says that #1 is the killer. This makes #1 really angry and stops the game once again. This causes Chanels #3, #5 and #6 to secretly plot to murder #1 because they really believe what Chanel #2 said.
Chanel #5 is seen in the kitchen with #3 and #6 as they plot to kill Chanel. #5 suggests that they poison her bras, Hester explains to her that it is a horrible idea, and suggests that they crush diamonds and have a sugar party and feed Chanel the diamonds that would kill her from the inside. #5 questions the sugar party but it is shut down by #3 as she thinks it is a great idea. Chanel then appears and asks what's a great idea. Hester explains to her that they were planning to throw a sugar party as Chanel expresses her liking to them. Chanel asks for Prunex, which are her liquid laxatives. After Chanel grabs her prunex, she goes back upstairs to head to bed. Once Chanel walks out, they announce that after Chanel falls asleep, they are going to murder Chanel. Chanel later gathers the Chanels and reveals to them that she knows about their plans to kill her, and #5, #3, and #6 apologize and say that they only wanted to kill her because they thought she was the killer. #1 says that they should discover whom the real killer is as Chanel does not believe that the real killer is Feather McCarthy whom got accused for the murders. Chanel thinks that the real killers are Grace and Zayday, and the girls agree. In the final moments of the episode, the Chanels watch over Grace and Zayday from the balcony as they walk into the house.
Two detectives, hired by Chanel to investigate Grace and Zayday's history to dig up dirt on them, inadvertently reveal that Chanel 5's real name is Libby Putney. They also inform Chanel that Libby 'Chanel #5' often sets up chat rooms called "anyone wanna help me poison Chanel Oberlin?" which Chanel does not care about, since she was looking for information on Grace and Zayday.
Eventually, she comes to a gas station, at which it is revealed that there was a trucker hiding in her back seat who knew the Red Devil was coming after her and was trying to stop him. As the trucker explains this to Libby, the Red Devil comes up behind him and stabs him to death. Libby screams in fear and drives back to campus.
Later on, she reveals she is tired of constantly being mistreated by Chanel.
Libby celebrates thanksgiving with her family, but her family was on the vacation. She came back to the Campus and joins Zayday, Sadie, Cathy, Pete, Grace, and Wes to their conversation. After their conversation Chanel & Hester came back to the Campus and telling what happens to their thanksgiving with Chad. Libby Helps Sadie to bring the turkey after bringing the turkey Chanel open the platter and saws Gigi's Head Serve in the platter and they all begin screaming in horror.
Libby goes shopping at a mall with the other Chanels. When the Red Devil attacks with a crossbow, she, Hester, and #3 escape, while Chanel gets shot in the chest with the crossbow, but survives.
Libby later goes to a clothing store and demands that the clerk take the "size 4" tags off of a few pairs of size 4 panties and replace them with tags that say "size 0" so that she can have panties that say "size 0" and fit her. The clerk has no idea what Libby is telling her to do.
Chanel Oberlin calls all her minions to come over to tell that the Pizza Delivery Man came over her room and dressed up like the Red Devil, after telling that, Zayday discovers that there's a bomb on the back of delivery man, they starting running and hide and covering their ears and the Pizza Delivery Man explodes and his body parts falling apart they begin screaming in horror. After that tragic moment, the police arrives and investigate what happen while Libby cries a lot because of some reason of what's happening. Chanel talks to Sadie and Libby that she is planning to apologize to Melanie Dorkus and recording it. The Chanels go to Melanie's house to apologize after they get inside. Someone swipes right on Libby on Tinder and she has to go to meet with this guy because she is very excited, Chanel lets her leave. After Grace says to Chanel that Hester is the killer, Chanel, Zayday, Grace, and Sadie see Libby in the Kappa bathroom, Libby says that the person who swipe right on her is some fake account of the Nickelback band member. They go to Chanel's closet and see that Hester has been stabbed in the eye by the stilleto heel, and blame it on Libby.
The Chanels call the ambulance and rescue Hester, after leaving Hester to the hospital, Chanel, Zayday, Grace, and Chanel #3 are interrogating #5 after what Hester blames on her. Denise Hemphill arrives and is ready to arrest #5, Hester comes back with a plaster in her eye and telling that she has a proof that Chanel #5 is the Red Devil (it is actually Hester). Grace says to Hester that she does not have any parents in her certificate on the Dean's laptop, and says Hester is the killer. Hester later introduce her parents, who are actually just people she hired, and her "dad" says that Hester does not have any parents listed on her certificate because he's a Detective, but Chanel #5, Grace, and the other girls are still confused. Libby shouts that she has parents too, and that they can explain that she is not actually Sophia's baby, proving that she is not the killer. However, when her parents arrive, it is discovered that Hester convinced them to say that #5 is the baby of the bathtub. Denise handcuffs Libby and Hester says there's another killer, Chanel #3. Hester makes it look like #3 is also a killer, and everyone thinks that #3 was the one who put the bomb in the Pizza Delivery Man, when it was actually Hester. Denise then handcuffs #3, but Hester says #5 and #3 are not the only killers, and that Chanel is also one. After Hester makes it look like the three of them are the Red Devil, the three Chanels try to run so they do not get arrested, but Denise Hemphill calls some policemen, who are former strippers, and arrest the girls. In the judgement, it is declared that they are guilty and they are gonna live in the Plamer Mental Institute Asylum for the rest of their lives.Months later, The Chanels are liking the asylum. Chanel becomes the asylum's queen and president, #3 has a deep relationship with a lesbian asylum nurse, and #5 is placed on a series of medications that completely transforms her personality into someone Chanel actually likes, resulting in them becoming best friends. The next day, #3 and #5 fall asleep while Chanel is attacked by the Red Devil and her fate is left unknown.
Hester confesses that she was the final Red Devil killer and the Chanels are freed from the asylum. Chanel #5 stops using her medications upon being freed, once again making Chanel resent her. She goes to Elmwood community college, along with the other Chanels, and graduates with a degree in Communications. She then gets a job as a dental receptionist. Dean Munsch offers the Chanels a job at C.U.R.E. Hospital as medical students after realizing they have some medical experience.
Chanel #5 convinces a patient, Catherine, to have hydrotherapy, which Catherine reluctantly accepts and complains that the water is scalding. Chanel #5 shuts the lid on Catherine's tub and locks it. She then gets in her own tub but accidentally locks herself in too. Catherine starts freaking out that they both will be stuck in their tubs with no one to help them, but Chanel #5 tells her that Chamberlain, the candy striper, will come down for them in an hour. Catherine still panics but takes Chanel #5's word for it. After an hour has passed, the Green Meanie creeps into the room, waking up Catherine and Chanel #5. They both think it's Chamberlain coming to get them, but when they get no answer and start hearing haunting footsteps slowly walking toward them, they both begin to be in silent fear, until the Green Meanie shows himself, and the women scream loudly in terror.
The Green Meanie then taunts them on which of them he's going to kill and ultimately ends up picking Catherine. Catherine pleads for the Green Meanie to kill Chanel #5 instead, and the Green Meanie then walks away, making Catherine think he's leaving. However, he quickly turns around and swiftly slices her head off, making it land right on top of Chanel #5's tub. Chanel #5 turns and faces Catherine's severed head staring back at her, before screaming in horror at the sight. As the Green Meanie raises his bloodied machete, Chanel #5 lets out one last long scream of helplessness and terror. Without hesitating, the Green Meanie slashes his machete downward as the episode ends, leaving her fate unknown.
In the opening scene, Chanel #5 is being questioned about the Green Meanie accident that had just occurred. Failing to stick to an alibi, is suspected of being a suspect. Chanel #5 desperately claims she had nothing to do with the killing saying a "Green Plant" attacked her. Chanel #1 and Chanel 3 later enter stating that it was her, trying to sabotage their dates with Brock and Cassidy, forcing the them, to come back to the hospital and miss them.
She is seen again when the Medical Team are talking about Tyler's condition.
Later that day, she's blabbing about her imaginary high school ex-boyfriend Clarance to Tyler. Chanel #5 continues to talk about how he broke up with her before graduation and how she thought it would different in college with love but Chanel ruined it for her. She's upset that Chanel and Chanel #3 have already got two hot doctor boyfriends, and she hasn't. Tyler tries to confront her, but saying he looks like bubble wrap. He than shows Chanel #5 a picture of him before the warts started to appear. Not knowing how Tyler will get enough money to pay for the laser treatment, Chanel #5 make it her mission to do so.
She then makes a video to get donations for Tyler's treatment, and then show it to the Chanels, whom make her believe that she should date Tyler while he is still hideous and then that way she will never be single. She then goes on a date with Tyler, however, two boys make fun of him for his appearance, which angers her and she ends up loosing her temper and beating them both up.
Back at C.U.R.E. Tyler and Chanel #5 finish their date and kiss, but Chanel and Chanel #3 surprise them both and congratulate Tyler for seeing past Chanel #5's "monstrous behavior". Chanel also reveals that she got Tyler the laser after asking Chad Radwell.
In the end of the episode, she facetimes with Tyler, whom is supposed to have his treatment the next day, is getting wheeled into surgery early. The Chanels then tell her that Dr. Brock Holt and Dr. Cassidy Cascade went home, meaning that the Green Meanie has taken over Tyler's surgery and kills him using the laser. The Chanels then rush to save him, but are too late, when Chanel makes the realization that "they have another serial killer on their hands".
The episode picks up where it left of as Chanel accuses #5 of being the killer, but she denies killing Tyler. Chanel #3 then suggests that they give into Hester's demands and allow her to stay at C.U.R.E Institute Hospital, however Chanel and #5 disagree and decide to play detective and use Hester as a last resort. Cathy then appears and takes the Chanels with Tyler's body to the swamp at the back of the hospital and that they must not tell the police because the hospital would be shutdown. Chanel #5 says goodbye to Tyler, however he vomits, which amuses Chanel.
The Chanels and Cathy visit Hester and ask her the identity of the killer and again, however Hester asks of her demands again and threatens to keep on adding to her bribe-list if they do not comply. She also tells them that body count will keep on rising. Cathy then gets a text from Chad saying that he knows who the killer is and leave the prison.
Zayday joins the Chanels at their apartment and plays scrabble with Chanel #5 and cracked Hester's code left for Chanel about her skin revealing "nurse" as the clue. The Chanels, Zayday, Cathy and Denise then go Lynn Johnstone, the only remaining survivor of the 1986 massacre at the hospital and only survived due to being on the toilet for a really long time and was paid shush money.

She then explains that she found some interesting news, she searched online for all the symptoms that they all think was Kuru and found that the only similar symptoms is dehydration. This then leads to Cathy telling everyone that she only drinks scotch and vodka, meaning she doesn't have Kuru, and she is just severely dehydrated.
Chanel #5 is uptight, sensitive, conservative and educated, but somehow the most normal out of the Chanel's. She is always in competition to be Chanel's favorite and eventually starts to become a suck up until Chanel corrects her, but at the same time #5 absolutely hates Chanel for the way on how she is treated by her and will do anything to see Chanel in fear or in pain because #5 is constantly mocked by Chanel by having vagina teeth and is usually a punching bag for her. #5 is also very uptight and stressed about most of the things she worries about, when the new misfit pledges join Kappa Kappa Tau, #5 is affected by this the most more than Chanel even, and when petty tragedies occur in her life she usually holds on to them and does not stop worrying or thinking about it without having to relive it several times. #5 also along the way has learned from her bad mistakes and terrible decisions, like at first she was slightly homophobic, when Boone asked to join Kappa, she immediately says no and tries to change Chanel's mind on not letting him join, but later on #5 supported the relationship of Chanel #3 and Sam and let them both be happy and do whatever they please, and like when she was a major suck up to Chanel but finally realised how much of an actual evil person she is, and like when Hester got a makeover into Chanel #6, #5 was angry and mortified because she did not want Chanel to make any of the misfit pledges a Chanel, but later started accepting Hester and became friends with her because of both of them having the same hatred for Chanel. In her love life, #5 struggles to get a partner and ends up crying and becoming very desperate, but her lucky one true soulmates are the two frat twins from Dickie Dollar Scholars, Roger and Dodger. #5 is extremely obsessed with them and cannot grasp away from them, but loves Roger more as when the three of them were being chased, #5 had to choose one of them she wants to be with forever before they all escape and of course, #5 chose Roger.
