Chucky episode 6 recap: Chucky claims the lives of TWO major characters
The latest episode of Chucky on SYFY was a doozy with the infamous doll killing not just one but TWO significant characters in a Cape Fear-inspired episode appropriately titled “Cape Queer.” Chucky episode 6 begins with the epic return of original franchise character Andy Barclay and his foster sister Kyle.
The pair is on a mission to eliminate all the Chucky-possessed Good Guy dolls, starting with a family in Richmond, Virginia, who has one named “Charlie” at home. Once Andy realizes the doll is possessed, he doesn’t waste any time shooting it dead with Kyle’s assistance, traumatizing the family for life. But, hey, at least they’re alive!
In Hackensack, things get substantially worse for all of the teenagers, Miss Fairchild and their parents in a chilling episode that raises the stakes even further than Chucky episode 5 did with the re-introduction of Tiffany Valentine and Nica Pierce.
Chucky episode 6 recap: Why was Miss Fairchild arrested?
What happened to Miss Fairchild? Detective Evans arrests her for multiple counts of homicide after she is fingered as the primary suspect in the recent deaths. She was next in line to become principal if something happened to Principal McVey, her fingerprints were all over McVey’s office and the crime scene, and Oliver Hayden was her student. It’s all circumstantial evidence at best and Miss Fairchild remains tight-lipped until she gets her lawyer. As she should!
Chucky episode 6 recap: What happens to Junior’s mom, Bree?
Previously, we found out that Junior’s mom Bree was diagnosed with cancer that has since metastasized. Operating on her therapist’s advice, Bree tells her husband, Logan, and Junior that she’s sick. It’s a devasting and emotional scene made worse by what comes next.
During her next therapy session, which Junior attends with her (he waits for her in the car), Bree tells her therapist that she will refuse treatment. She wants to enjoy the remainder of her life without being sick. Too bad that Chucky has other plans.
Lurking in the corners of the therapy building, Chucky catches Bree unaware while she’s standing in front of wall-to-ceiling windows and uses a cart to force her through the window where she falls to her death. As if that wasn’t bad enough, she lands on top of her car with her face smashed into the windshield, looking straight at Junior.
Everyone assumes that Bree killed herself because she wanted to take back control of her life, knowing that she would die soon from cancer. If Bree was really going to kill herself, would she have done it with her son sitting in the car outside? Come on, people, think!
Jake, at least, does not believe Bree jumped. He tries to tell Junior this, but Junior doesn’t want to hear it and pretty much tells Jake to get lost. By this point, Junior has lost everyone in his life who cares about him, including Lexy. He dumps her after she still refuses to tell him what’s going on with Jake and Devon. We already know Junior doesn’t have a good relationship with his father, so as far as he’s concerned, he’s on his own now. Junior could quickly become an ideal target for Chucky.
Chucky episode 6 recap: Who else does Chucky kill in this episode?
Lexy, Devon and Jake know Chucky is still on the loose, so they track down the only person out there who can help them: Andy. Jake figures out that it was Andy who called him before after he tried selling Chucky online. But since Andy and Kyle are still in Virginia, it’ll be a while before they get to Hackensack.
In the meantime, the trio prepares to lure Chucky into a trap. At Junior’s house, they use a trap Devon saw in Cape Fear, which includes wiring a doll to serve as an alarm system instead of the actual alarm system, so they don’t tip off the cops, particularly Devon’s mother.
The plan quickly goes awry, with Chucky still managing to sneak into the house and get a jump on the teens. He corners Lexy alone and offers a deal: either he’ll kill her, or she has to kill Jake. Jake and Devon get there before Chucky can hurt Lexy. Devon even gets a chance to use his taser on him. Interestingly, Chucky doesn’t actually attack Lexy or Devon, which doesn’t go unnoticed by the teens. Instead, he sets his sights on Devon’s mom, Detective Evans, who has just arrived at Junior’s in search of her son.
How did she find out where Devon was? Tragically, Chucky attacks her and pushes her down the staircase, where she falls and breaks her neck, killing her instantly. Chucky episode 6 is not a good episode for moms. The worst part is that Devon came out to his mom earlier in the episode, and she had accepted him without question, making her death all the more heartbreaking.
But what’s going on with Chucky? Does he have some kind of ulterior motive? Why is he going after everyone’s parents?
Chucky episode 6 recap: What does Tiffany have planned for Nica?
Elsewhere in Hackensack, Nica gets her body back again and tries to fool Tiffany into believing she’s still Chucky. It doesn’t work. Tiffany pretends that she likes Nica better than Chucky, but then she knocks her out and throws her in the back of her trunk.
Tiffany has purchased Charles Lee Ray’s childhood home. You know, the place where his parents were murdered and the legend began. It’s not yet apparent what she intends to do with Nica/Chucky. Was there an element of truth in what she said to Nica?
This week, the flashback sequence is short and sweet, showing us just a simple scene of Charles Lee Ray and Tiffany killing a salesman to steal his car (which Tiffany is still driving in the present). It is weird to see Tiffany being portrayed by another actress in the past. However, Jennifer Tilly is dubbing her voice similar to Brad Dourif dubbing Fiona Dourif’s voice as she plays past Charles Lee Ray, which is a fun casting gag.
New episodes of the Chucky TV series air Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SYFY and USA Network.
