American Horror Story: Freak Show- Edward Mordrake Pt. 2 (04×05)



“Save them from the freaks, the evil mean freaks.”

It was an episode full of stories, surprises, and deaths. I mean what else can you expect from AHS? Like I told you fellow freaks, it usually takes me a good 24-hours to process episodes.. mainly because of the “creepy” factor. I would watch them twice to get the full grasp, but I’m way too scared. This week we get the part two of the Edward Mordrake story. He is looking for additions to his own ghostly show.. at least I think. The way Mordrake picks his additions, reveals each characters story.  This gave us a deeper look at our freaks and sheesh, they’ve all  had some pretty rough stories. Suzy was born with a spinal condition, which resulted in the amputation of her legs. This was too much for her parents too handle so they left her on the doorstep of a children’s home. She ended up killing a man because she got jealous of his legs. Paul’s dreams were to only be in Hollywood, but his body didn’t really match the criteria. He eventually tattooed his whole body, leaving only his pretty face free, which could make him millions. They unfortunately didn’t make Mordrake’s cut and he said, next!

He moves on to Elsa, who screams that she isn’t a freak– that she feels and is normal and doesn’t belong there. She is also high so she probably doesn’t know whats going on. But, she must tell her story. She admits that she was a dominatrix back in Germany, referring to herself as a “star” making it clear the men never touched her. One night, she was drugged, tied and had her legs cut off by a chainsaw. The sounds of chainsaws always remind her of these times. Mordrake is very fond of her story and his second face wants her to join their ghost crew… until he heard the other performers stories.


Twisty the clown is next..and his reveal is something I wasn’t expecting it. I feel like in every season of AHS there is always that one character that is misunderstood. This time it’s Twisty. He started off s a happy clown in the 1940’s, who loved children and never got along with other freaks in the show. They drove him away by telling the cops he was inappropriate with children.  He went back home only to discover his mother had died and he had no one in town. He turned a gun on himself, which shot off his mouth. That’s when he made it his mission to love kids, but kill their parents.  Mordrake justifies what Twisty has done in his past making it seem like the parents deserved it. Twisty’s story makes the evil in Mordrake weep and  he chooses him. He stabs him in the heart, killing the clown and adding him to the collection of dead freaks.

Twisty joins the ghostly troupe, but leaves behind Dandy. Dandy is the only one who has actually misses Twisty, and wears a freakish clown costume to prove it. He ends up slicing the maids neck, in memory of his fallen friend. Twisty is dead y’all, twisty is dead! !Let’s all process this together and possibly rejoice?

In other AHS news, Maggie and Jimmy had their first date on the episode, which goes to show Emma Roberts and Evan Peters must be dating in each series, no matter who they play. 

Overall it was a great, spooky, episode. Happy Halloween freaks, until next time.

WATCH: “American Horror Story” Invites You To The Cult for Season 7



AHS Season 7 Cult

Ryan Murphy is taking some inspo from R. Kelly for the upcoming 7th season of American Horror Story.

Sorry, we had to.

The director revealed the show’s new theme…. drumroll, please…. CULT.

Ryan, who is super secretive about show themes, dropped clues leading up to the reveal on Instagram, which included creepy clowns, American flags, and a person being eaten alive by a hive of bees. Not creepy at all.

While fans still don’t really know what “Cult” signifies but in his announcement, Murphy asked fans to “join the cult.”


Here’s what we know so far:

  • Twisty the Clown is back for the season.

  • So did Billie Lourd


If I were to take a guess, I would say the series will be set in a colonial town and everyone will be blindly in a patriotic, pro-America cult.

And maybe the cult is run by clowns? I’m definitely getting Purge movie vibes!

guess we’ll find out when the series debuts on Sept. 5!

American Horror Story-Freak Show “Curtain Call” (4×13)




 The curtain has fallen on our freakish friends, and last weeks season finale of American Horror Story Freak Show, left me pretty disappointed. Before I get into the recap I have to say, I wasn’t expecting it to end this way. The freaks we’ve all come to love and know all have their finale moments and I wanted it done better.

Dandy goes on a killing spree, before he is killed himself. All of the freaks we come to love, Seal Boy, The Strongwoman, Meryl Streep Jr, and more are shot by Dandy. Desiree is the only one to survive. Jimmy and his now claws comes back to the campground to see the massacre. He Bette and Dot and Desiree plan to kill Dandy for what he has done. I felt like it was a pretty weak plot to have Dandy kill off the characters, especially since it was the finale.

Once they find him, the only thing they can think of is torture. They let him drown in Houdini’s tank, making his farewell as the ultimate freak in a jar. Did I like the way he died, not really. I felt like they could have done more to him, I was expecting some crazy stuff.

Elsa and Massimo are off to hollywood to start Elsa’s grand career. She is fame hungry, but when Hollywood rejects her, the only thing left for her is to find love. She can’t get that with Massimo since he doesn’t have a soul, so she offs herself to Edward Mordrake. Remember in the halloween episode when Mordrake was looking to make his own dead freak show, well now she is part of it.

I felt like they didn’t do Elsa justice either. This was Jessica Langes last year on AHS, and I needed more. I didn’t want to see her end just by sining songs to the dead, I wanted to see her die in a crazy way, or live up to the damage she did with her freaks. Overall we saw everyones story come to an end, and its crazy to admit but I will miss my fellow freaks.

American Horror Story: Freak Show- Show Stoppers (4×12)



My fellow freaks, our favorite television show is coming to an end.  It’s crazy to think that we’ve come this far, but tonight the curtain will come down and it will be the season finale of the freak show. Before we get into tonights episode, last week left our jaws dropped when a magic trick went HORRIBLY wrong. Everyone finds out about Elsa killing Ethel, and Jimmy is having a hard time realizing he has no hands. And if things weren’t freakier, Marjorie (Chester’s Doll) confesses to Bette and Dot that Chester killed his wife and her lover. Bette and Dot are not okay with this, but I guess the show must go on.


Chester has his first meeting as owner, and wants to change up his finale so that Bette and Dot are cut in half. They are completely thrown off and decline the offer. This is when things start to get a little crazy. Chester begins to hallucinate, and thinks that Maggie is his former wife and so he locks her feet in place so that they can’t be pulled into the box. He then saws her in half and all of her guts spill out onto the stage. I WAS MORTIFIED.

Chester then looses it, and starts stabbing Marjorie. He thinks he “Killed her” but we all know she is a dummy. He takes her to the police station and turns himself in. He is then sent to an asylum for the crazy. Back at the camp, everyone is on the hunt of Elsa, so much that they don’t even mourn Maggie. They all know what Elsa did, and want to punish her for it. Bette and Dot warn her about everyone coming for her, and she fleas. She is then seen with Dandy, who has now bought the show. As he is taking a look around his inventory, he hears something in the tent. In a cage, he sees Stanley, who has been transformed, from what looks like amputations. It looks like a creepy little version of Meep, and I was very disgusted. I can’t wait to see how the freak show ends, since this episode was the scariest all season long.
