It's a time-honored enforcement of the food chain. The weak are outed and then eaten.

Nina Patterson was a recurring character in the television series Scream. She is portrayed by Bella Thorne.


Nina Patterson was one of the popular mean girls and the former queen bee at George Washington High School before her death.

On the night she and her on/off boyfriend, Tyler O'Neill, uploaded a video of Audrey and Rachel making out, she was brutally murdered by a person in a Brandon James mask (Ghostface).

From what others have said, Nina was cruel, vindictive and petty: examples include betting Will to sleep with Emma simply out of jealousy and blackmail on various Lakewood residents.
