Margaret turned out to be the person that carried out the original 1970s massacre at Camp Redwood. I’m not sure if this was a huge surprise as something always seemed off, but it’s a big reveal for only being four episodes in.
She killed all the fellow counselors for bullying her, cut off her own ear to appear as a victim and then framed Mr. Jingles for the killing. After extensive shock therapy and years of isolation, he began to believe he was the real killer and assumed that role after breaking out of prison.
Once the reveal is made, Margaret shoots Mr. Jingles, but he is able to get away. Trevor, unfortunately, is stabbed to death
