Dr. Cassidy Cascade was a main character on Season Two of Scream Queens. He was a doctor at C.U.R.E. who suffered from a strange mental condition known as Cotard's Syndrome, in which the affected person holds the delusional belief that he is already dead or does not exist. He was revealed to be the son of Bill and Jane Hollis in Chanel Pour Homme-Icide and one of the Green Meanies in Blood Drive.
He is portrayed by Taylor Lautner.
Dr. Cassidy Cascade is first seen walking with Dr. Brock Holt at the C.U.R.E Institute Hospital, where they work as surgeons. They both introduce themselves to Catherine Hobart, a woman with a condition called Hypertrichosis that causes excessive hair growth. Cathy Munsch then appears and welcomes Catherine to her hospital, which she now owns, but Dr. Cassidy claims that she's "not a real doctor."
During her first day at the hospital, Zayday Williams introduces herself to Dr. Cassidy and Dr. Brock, and the latter reveals how he lost his hand in a flashback, and received the world's first hand transplant. Zayday appears sympathetic towards this revelation. After Dr. Brock leaves, Zayday touches Dr. Cassidy's back and says that he "feels like a block of ice". After he leaves, Zayday appears a little freaked out by her new co-workers' revelations.
Later, Zayday, Brock, and Cassidy are seen tending to Catherine, and Zayday assures her that she will have a normal life, like everyone else. However, Dr. Cassidy and Dr. Brock claim that there is nothing that they can do for Catherine's condition, as it is a chromosomal deformity, but Zayday is adamant that they try harder. A candy striper named Chamberlain Jackson then appears and tries to cheer up Catherine with a lollipop; however, Brock and Cassidy are upset by his presence because he walked into the room without any permission and managed to upset Catherine by calling her "Hairy Mary". Catherine then decides to leave, but Zayday convinces her to stay for one more week until they find a cure.
Zayday, the Chanels, Brock, and Cassidy then appear to offer Catherine good news about her condition; however, it's only research by Zayday and not by a "real doctor". Zayday then gives her more information about the procedure and Catherine eventually agrees. Before Zayday and Cassidy could begin the procedure on Catherine, Chanel Oberlin and Brock appear and reveal that the foods that Catherine eats make her testosterone really high, and she needs DHT for the hormone levels to go down so her hair will eventually thin.
The Chanels get changed to go home, when Chanel gives Chanel #5 the graveyard shift job. Chanel and Chanel #3 reveal that they have date plans with Dr. Brock and Dr. Cassidy. A flashback, shows Chanel #3 being asked on a date by Cassidy, which she agrees to.
He is then seen having a meeting with new patient Tyler, who is seen with an unusual condition.
Chanel #3, Dr. Cassidy and Cathy are then met with a woman named Sheila Baumgartner, who has Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder. Dr. Cassidy reveals that using anti-depression medication could suppress her condition. Later, after hours, Dr. Cassidy and Chanel #3 clean up, and she reveals to him that she has never had an orgasm and that she never really feels anything. Cassidy then confesses that he is "dead" and reveals that he died from choking on his vomit and is cursed to walk the earth. Chanel #3 appears confused by how he is still breathing, but it's clear that Cassidy doesn't know much about his condition. They then begin to feel closer and eventually kiss.
Dr. Cassidy is then mentioned as a possible suspect as the Green Meanie by Chanel Oberlin. Dr. Cassidy and Chanel #3 then watch over Sheila who is now appearing "nutty" as a side effect, according to #3. Cassidy and Chanel #3 then do yoga together to try and achieve the same condition that Sheila got from when she first started doing yoga. Chanel #3 then feels a slight orgasm for the first time ever.
Dr. Cassidy and Chanel #3 then perform minor surgery on Sheila's genitals so that she doesn't have to feel her condition anymore and she is now cured. Dr. Cassidy and Chanel #3 then kiss and prepare to have sex, but the musical choices are making her feel emotional. She then stops him because he feels cold. He then proves to her that he is dead when a thermostat shows that he is 61 degrees.
He is then seen attending Chanel and Chad's wedding, but Chad is appearing late to the altar, when suddenly, Chad's body falls from the ceiling, dead.
After Chad's death, Cassidy, Zayday, Denise, Cathy, Brock, and the rest of the Chanels rush over to Chanel at the hospital's morgue to comfort her, while she is literally crying over Chad's body. Denise then makes everyone else leave to examine the body (when in reality she wanted to be alone with the body and vows to find his killer).
Cassidy is then seen at the Halloween party, dressed as Ryan Lochte, with the rest of the staff. Hester appears dressed as Ivanka Trump, while Chanel #5 appears dressed as her mother. Everyone at the party becomes suspicious, as they are unaware it is Hester wearing the Ivanka costume. Suddenly, a wave of hospital patients appear in critical condition, and Hester hides away in the crowd, while the staff rush to help the patients after they were all poisoned by apples.
Dr. Cassidy, Zayday, and Chamberlain later discover that the patients were spiked with DMT when the water for bobbing apples was drugged by the Green Meanie.
The Chanels (with the exception of #5), Zayday, Dr. Brock and Cassidy, alongside Cathy are met with a new patient with an interesting ailment in which she keeps on changing her accent.
Chanel #3 and Dr. Cassidy talk with Penelope about her condition, when Dr. Brock Holt appears and diagnosis her with Foreign Accent Syndrome.
Chanel #3, Dr. Cassidy and Brock investigate Penelope's ailment while posing different accents, believing her they contracted her condition also. They then suggest giving her steroids which could suppress her changing accents. They discover that they also need to watch/listen to American accents to suppress the fake accents, however Cassidy has to leave and walks away.
Ingrid then gives the staff an announcement, however, Dr. Cassidy and Dr. Brock leave before the announcement was revealed.
After Chanel finally convinces Chanel #9 to donate blood, Chanel briefly leaves #9 unattended, when the Green Meanie appears. Ingrid Marie Hoffel then appears and says that they "are on the same team". The killer takes off the mask, revealing it to be Cassidy. Ingrid tells him that Zayday is close to finding out who he is, and he reveals that he was gonna kill her but he is scared of her. Ingrid then offers her support in Cassidy's killing team, and even offers to take out the Chanels for him, which he agrees to and they both decide to kill Chanel #9 together. Cassidy then asks Ingrid if she is the second green Meanie, however, she reveals that she hasn't killed anyone, meaning that there is someone else killing the patients and staff as well.
Chanel then comes back to see that Chanel #9 has been completely drained of blood.
Cassidy sneaks into the blood storage room, and switches his blood type results with Brock's, to get the scent away from Zayday, who has found out that the killer Bill and Jane's child will only have O-positive blood.
At the end of the episode, Cassidy gives Ingrid a present; her very own Green Meanie costume, which she accepts and both are seen walking the halls of the hospital, even though they realize that there is a third killer, whose identity is yet to be revealed.
Despite being accused of being the Green Meanie, Brock remains at the hospital, however, since Brock doesn't know who Cassidy really is and despite, trying to frame him without his knowledge, they both remained good friends.
While Cassidy is training at the swamp where his father's body was thrown in, Chanel #3 approaches him and tells him he may have Cotard's syndrome, which is a psychological trauma used to explain why he thinks he's dead. She also goes on to explain that she can't be in a relationship with a guy who thinks he's dead.
Cassidy is then given a neurological test by Chanel #3 and #5, which ultimately confirms he has Cotard's and the reason why he always feels cold is because the condition mimics what he truly believes in. However, after he leaves, Chanel #3 tells #5 that the tests prove that he is a psychopath and possibly a killer. They also conclude that he could be the Green Meanie, however, Chanel #3 refuses to turn him into the police, believing that she deserves her chance at happiness.
Chanel #3 then makes a confession to a corpse in the morgue, where she is conflicted about turning Cassidy over to the police and whether or not he is actually in love with her.
Chanel #3 is then seen with Dr. Cassidy and a patient who is really ill and with an unusual skin condition. The girlfriend begs Dr. Cassidy and "Dr. #3" to save her boyfriend's life. Dr. Cassidy promises to find out the man's condition and save his life.
Cassidy is then seen in the locker room with the Green Meanie costume. Ingrid then arrives and reveals a plan to make Brock's psychotic hand from another serial killer, lose it and kill Chanel Oberlin, however, Cassidy is beginning to feel guilty about killing people. However, Ingrid is hell-bent on achieving her revenge for her sister and wants to pick off the Chanels one-by-one, starting with Chanel #3. Cassidy, however, refuses to kill Chanel #3 but Ingrid threatens to send him to the electric chair.
Dr. Cassidy gives Chanel #3 a hazmat suit to talk to the couple about his condition, where he reveals that the man was poisoned by the Russians, and can't find a cure, however, his girlfriend refuses to leave him until Dr. Cassidy finds a cure.
Dr. Cassidy tells Chanel #3 that he doesn't understand the girlfriend's need to save someone, despite putting her own life at risk and #3 tells him that that's what true love feels like. They both then say that they love each other, however, Cassidy also reveals that he has to kill Chanel, which makes #3 decide that they need to find a cure for him after they find a cure for the women's boyfriend.
Chanel #3 and Dr. Cassidy then discover that the girlfriend has been poisoning her boyfriend to gain sympathy, however, the man reveals that he has been poisoning himself because he hates his girlfriend. While arguing with his girlfriend, Chanel #3 leaves the room and Cassidy follows after her, and reveals that she doesn't believe in true love anymore and decides to turn him into the authorities, but he threatens to kill her and she storms off.
Dr. Cassidy and Dr. Brock then preform surgery on Anna Plaisance, a women with an unusual condition in which she merged with her twin in the womb, resulting in four arms and four legs. Dr. Cassidy then ties Dr. Brock's hand to prevent him from hurting Anna. To help Brock calm down while preforming surgery, the Chanels preform a song from his past, which works and Anna is cured.
Dr. Cassidy tells the patient from earlier that his skin condition actually saved his life, and after he leaves, tells Chanel #3 that he is sorry and promises not to kill the Chanels. He also confirms to her that there is another killer in the hospital, but can't confirm their identity.
Dr. Cassidy then congratulates Dr. Brock on Anna's surgery then reveals that Anna's conjoined twin was actually male and hands match Brock's wrist. He offers to replace his killer hand with Anna's twin hand and he agrees.
Dr. Cassidy is seen attending to new patient, Wes Gardner, whom he believes to have a tumor in his abdomen, which, according to Wes, started developing when Cathy left him. Cassidy then discovers that Wes never had a tumor but a massive hairball in his stomach from ingesting his own hair.
The Green Meanies begin to corner all the Chanels, who are left on the graveyard shift. When one is about to attack Chanel #3, another intervenes and stops them. She then winks at the Green Meanie, meaning that it's Cassidy. When the Chanels all get away, the killer's unmask themselves, revealing Wes Gardner to the third Green Meanie that Cassidy and Ingrid were not aware off. They all argue over the Chanels getting away, until Hester Ulrich shows up and calls a Green Meanie summit.
At the Green Meanie summit, Hester decides to tally up who killed who, as so that no ones "feelings get hurt". Cassidy reveals that he killed Catherine Hobart, Tyler, Randal, the Halloween patients, Tristan St. Pierre, Chanel #11, and Chanel #9 (alongside Ingrid). Seeing that Cassidy has had the highest body count, Hester gives him his next kill of his choice. He decides that he doesn't care who Wes or Ingrid go after as long as it isn't Chanel #3, to which Ingrid responds because he "loves her" and he admits it. They then argue over who can kill who, and Cassidy agrees to kill #3. Hester then calls a vote on who gets to kill who, and gives Chanel Oberlin to Ingrid. Hester then dismisses the Green Meanies.
Dr. Cassidy is then thanked by Chanel #3 for saving him, and she tells him to stop killing people, otherwise she can't date him anymore. He then makes a point that the killings will still continue since there is two other killers and he admits he is doing for his mother; whom he is scared of. Chanel #3 offers to speak to her together to stop Cassidy from killing again.
While jogging, Cassidy is approached by Wes who offers him a proposition; to help him take out Chanel and pin the entire murders on Ingrid, to which he agrees.
Zayday is still trapped in the secret well within Jane's house. She hears Cassidy calling out his mom, making her realize that Cassidy is Jane's son, to which Jane sarcastically congratulates her for figuring it out. She then goes to meet her son who has brought Chanel #3 with him. She then tells #3 that her attempts to convince her to stop Cassidy from murdering people at the hospital will fail. Jane then continues to make fun of Chanel #3 for her social media footprint and blackmails Cassidy into thinking that he will fail her if he doesn't avenge his father. He then apologizes to Chanel #3 as he chooses his mother over her, and she leaves.
The Chanels are then forced to start the test early as the patient has already boarded the plane to get to C.U.R.E. Institute Hospital for Dr. Lovin's TV show. The examiner then comes back and reveals that the Chanels all past their test. It's then revealed that the Chanels actually cheated on the test with help from Dr. Cassidy and Dr. Brock, while Chanel #5 passed on her own.
Ingrid confronts Wes with Cassidy about his failed attempt to poison Chanel. It's made clear that Cassidy pretended to work with Wes as they corner him towards Ingrid's vat of boiling oil. Wes then throws himself into the pool of boiling oil, screaming in agony as he dies and Cassidy and Ingrid watches.
After Cathy discovers Wes' burnt body while wearing the Green Meanie costume, she faints and later wakes up surrounded by everyone. Ingrid and Cassidy then place the Green Meanie kills on Wes. Chanel #5 then mentions her concerns of Zayday being still missing as Cathy only realizing this, wants to find her. She also reveals for the first time of her ailment as she is dying with Kuru and it's incurable.
Chanel #3 is first seen filing paperwork, when the Green Meanie approaches from behind her. She turns around and screams when the Green Meanie comes in closer with his machete. She pleads for her life, when the Green Meanie takes of the mask, revealing it's Cassidy whom tells her he's sorry. She thanks him for not killing her and he says he doesn't want to kill anymore and will have to kill his mother to stop the cycle. Chanel #3 tells him that they should just talk instead, and he agrees. They then agree to meet later on.
Ingrid then appears to Cassidy and complains that the Chanels are so hard to kill. Cassidy then tells Ingrid that he doesn't want to be a serial killer anymore and that all Green Meanie duties will be up to her at this point. He then threatens to kill her if she goes near Chanel #3, but she threatens to off him and he angrily walks away.
Chanel #3 joins Cassidy and his mother out for dinner; and he tells her that he no longer wishes to kill anyone. Chanel #3 then points out as long as people think Wes is the killer then Cassidy and Jane have gotten away with murder. Cassidy then pleads with her and tells her that the killing is something that she wanted to do, not him. Jane then clears the table and angrily jumps out of her seat and tells him that the killing ends when the hospital is shut down and that Cassidy will not get in her way of her motive. #3 then asks her "how can she speak to her son like that?" Jane then disowns Cassidy and gives him away to Chanel #3, calling her a "Jezebel" before storming off. Chanel #3 then comforts Cassidy, but he is worried because Ingrid remains a threat and reveals her as the other Green Meanie, scaring Chanel #3.
Cassidy is seen attending Cathy and Brock's wedding, where Ingrid asks him if the minister is the real supreme court member Anthony Kennedy, but he thinks it's just a look-alike, however, Ingrid remains convinced it could be him and both come in for a closer look.
During Cathy's brain surgery, Cassidy tells Cathy that the procedure is about to happen as she is high on really strong medication. He tells her to sing her favorite song, while he removes a piece of brain tissue to check if she actually has kuru. Chanel then approaches Cathy with her latte (to pour on Cathy) however, Ingrid intervenes and gets in the way, splashing it on her instead. Chanel then claims that she tripped and it was an accident, however, Cassidy says that it was obviously not an accident. Cathy's surgery is complete, when the other Chanels try to drag her outside.
Cassidy is next seen by Cathy's bedside as Chanel #5 then reveals that Cathy doesn't have kuru, however, it was inconclusive so the tests could still prove to be kuru. Chanel #5 then tells her that the only other similar symptoms could be severe dehydration. Cathy then realizes that she only drinks alcohol, and never any actual water. Cathy then talks with the shaman who gave her the brains over the phone, and he confirms that she ate brains. Cathy begins to cry as she knows that she actually has kuru. However, she didn't eat human brains, but lamb brains instead, making her happy as she only has dehydration. Chanel #8 then appears and tells them to meet Ingrid in the basement for Cathy's celebration.
However, this was a trick to trap them in a cage as she has been planting a fertilizer bomb in the basement. Cathy then realizes that she is the Green Meanie, and then she outs Cassidy as the baby and the other Green Meanie. Ingrid then reveals that her real name is Ingrid Bean, but the Chanels don't remember Ms. Bean, her sister. Ingrid then reminds them that she was Chanel's maid that she killed with a deep fryer. Ingrid becomes adamant that everyone will die and Cassidy will take the blame, however, Zayday appears with Jane, whom has changed her mind on the hospital after seeing that the facility now cares about it's patients. Jane then regrets her part in the Green Meanie conspiracy but Ingrid shoots her in the chest and tells Zayday to drag her body in the cage. As Jane dies, she apologizes to her son for everything and that his father will be proud. Zayday also promises her that the hospital will continue helping the incurable, as Jane passes away. Cassidy then threatens to kill Ingrid. But she knows this is impossible as he is trapped. She then reveals her bomb, and bids the Chanels a life in Hell. Denise Hemphill then appears after her slumber (as Ingrid unplugged the cyro-chamber). Before Denise could catch up Chanel points out the bomb ticking away. Denise then tries her lucky hand at disarming the bomb from her experience watching Quantico and it works.
As Ingrid walks away, everyone gathers and chases after her, grabbing her machete as she runs out of the hospital. Ingrid then throws her machete at Chanel #3, but Cassidy jumps in front of the blade, killing him as he dies in Chanel #3's arms. She forgives him for his murders, but everyone else doesn't see it that way,
however, #3 cuts them off. Cassidy then confesses that he truly loves Chanel #3 and dies. The group then chase after Ingrid who then runs into quicksand. Chanel then decides to let her drown, as none of the masked killers actually face justice. Cathy then calls a vote to save Ingrid, but no one agrees and allow her to die, walking away. But Cathy feels bad and goes to save her but it fails and she instantly drowns, dying in the process.
As the coroners office takes Cassidy's body away, Chanel #3 dramatically chases after the body when Dr. Brock stops her.
