Later, a traumatized Liv tells Deion by telephone her suspicions that the killer is someone in the group.
The title of this episode is a reference to the 1986 song "He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)", which was the theme song to the 1986 American slasher film Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives.

|During Manny's funeral, Kym receives flowers along with a note written by Ghostface, telling her to choose who in the group should die, and stating that "snitchers die". Shortly thereafter, the group meets up and Deion decides that no one in the group should respond to the message, so no one will be chosen. At night, Deion asks Jamal for a gun and goes to Liv's house to discuss their next steps, only for them to have sex that night. Amir goes to Beth's house, where they have a talk about who they really want to be, theorize that Liv can be Ghostface and soon after, they had sex too. Liv does a simple homage to Manny on the roof of the school, where it is found by Hawkins, Deion's teammate, who reveals that Manny and he were lovers. Deion finds a private telephone in Liv's drawer, and a receipt of flowers Kym received earlier that day, and when confronted about it, Liv discovers the weapon in his backpack, and in fear, calls her father to arrest him. However, Reynolds takes him into the middle of the forest, where he reveals to Deion that Liv has been mentally unstable since the separation of her parents, and fears that she has personality disorder. During the conversation, Reynolds is attacked and stabbed by Ghostface and Deion scared calls the police, only to discover that they had been called before, and he flees. At Beth's house, the group gets a message announcing that Deion has been chosen to die and Beth discovers that Amir has voted to do so according to what Deion had previously requested. But Beth remembers that the message said "snitchers die," and that may indicate that Amir is in danger because he chose Deion. Said and done, Ghostface invades Beth's house and they both run through it together but end up splitting up in the process. Amir is killed by Ghostface in the elevator. While the ambulance takes his body, the police arrest Deion on suspicion of attacking Reynolds.|

|Liv visits her father in the hospital, who is alive, but unstable. Deion is held until the next morning by the police who releases him for lack of evidence, and later is picked up by Jamal. During the ride, Deion discovers that DJ Mr. Fade (Shane's former alter-ego) will throw a party that night, and on suspicion of being Ghostface, asks Jamal to let him work at this party, where Jamal reluctantly accepts. Despite the differences, Kym and Beth team up to gather evidence that Liv is Ghostface, but both have separate and enlightening conversations with the girl, who reveals having the private telephone to communicate with her mother, and that she feels guilty for the divorce of her parents. Deion finds Ghostface's mask in Jamal's trunk, and when confronted, he says it's only for use at the party. After Kym tries unsuccessfully to get information from Jamal during the party, he talks privately with Deion and tells him that he himself is Mr. Fade, and at the same time that Deion reveals the existence of the serial killer, Jamal acts in a strange way and insinuates that he's Ghostface, saying he'll go after Reynolds and Liv that night. Deion rushes to the hospital where Ghostface has arrived first, killed a police officer, and is now trying to turn off Reynolds' life support machines, but Deion saves him, and shares with Kym his discovery about Jamal. Soon, Kym and Beth tell the police about Jamal, who at the place of the now empty party, is attacked and seriously injured by Ghostface, who accuses him of having "taken a forbidden advantage."|

|On the night of the big game, Deion is convinced that it's not worth playing when a killer is on the loose, but with the police looking for Jamal, Kym and Liv convince him to get what he dreams of doing. Motivated, he returns to the team just in time. Meanwhile, Ghostface keeps a wounded Jamal in an unknown location. While they are on way for the game, Beth and Kym receive a video of Ghostface showing Jamal injured and that Deion must go alone to "Earl's house," a truck with that name. Kym creates a distraction and Beth invades the game to show the video to Liv, who tells Deion during the interval of the game. Deion comes to the conclusion that Ghostface wants him because, on the night of Marcus's death, they both changed their fantasies and Deion, in Marcus's clothes, was the one who died that night. So Marcus had always been Deion since then because no one recognized him, not even Sherry, his mother. Soon after the revelation, Marcus steals a school bus and arrives at the place where Jamal is, and takes him away. But out there, Jamal reveals that he's really Ghostface, having taken the mantle because their father chose Deion's mother and Marcus instead of Jamal's mother, and that made Marcus have the perfect life. He also reveals that he has a girl accomplice and that she "will end it all," but he dies from the wounds before he reveals who she is. Liv and Beth invade the school where Marcus arrives shortly after. The two girls are accusing themselves of being Ghostface, but before Marcus calls the police, Beth shoots his cell phone and hitting his hip with the bullet, revealing herself as the accomplice of Jamal. They met at her tattoo studio, and shortly after he told her story, Beth had realized that she wanted to be the protagonist of her own horror story. With Marcus wounded, Liv rushes through the school to save herself and with Beth in her chase dressed as Ghostface, pursues her with a gun, and soon after with an ax. The confrontation reaches the roof of the school, where Marcus distracted Beth and Liv pushed her from the rooftop into a glass ceiling of the gym. Kym arrives soon after armed, and shoots Beth fatally. A few months later, Kym and Hawkins went to college together. Marcus (still using his original name Deion, implying that Beth's theory is fake) attends San Diego University with Sherry and Liv accompanying him, where they enjoy life without fear or worrying about Ghostface and Liv come to the conclusion that they should not tell the truth about the exchange of twins. At the same time, Deion receives an anonymous call but ignores it.|
