This makes the girls think that she is no longer the killer, and Hester says #5 is the Red Devil, and the girls believe her because #5 was the only one in the house when that happened. In reality, Hester studied an anatomy book and got x-rays taken of her skull so she could jab the heel in her own eye without harming any vital organs, and she did it so the girls wouldn't suspect her as the killer anymore.

She convinced #5's parents to say that she is actually one of the babies in the bathtub, which is not true. She read a letter that Charles Manson sent to #3 in which he suggests that she strap a bomb to pizza delivery guy, so everyone thinks she was the one that put the dynamite on that guy. She also forges a letter from #3's "psychiatrist" to make it look like #3 has split personality disorder, and that her alter ego, Dirty Helen, killed some of the victims. At the beginning of the year, Hester bought all the Red Devil weapons dressed up as Chanel, so by watching the security footage of the store they think Chanel is the killer too.

Cathy Munsch becomes an icon after publishing a successful feminist book that was written by a ghost author. On campus, Grace, Zayday and Hester put up a memorial of all the victims of the killer, which was paid for by Chad and his family. Grace makes sure that the story never repeats again by creating a help line center at Kappa, that serves for every girl to call when she needs help while having a baby in a bathtub. Cathy admits to Hester that she knows she was the killer all this time because she recognizes her as a baby, but they both agree to not say anything because Hester would also reveal to the police that Cathy covered up Sophia Doyle's death and that she also killed her ex-husband, Steven Munsch. Also, Cathy and Wes continue with their relationship.[7]
