So it’s been a few days since the last “American Horror Story” episode, so I’m doing my best to recall what happen and give my thoughts . . .
The second episode introduced us to Dr. Oliver Threadson (Zach Quinto) who was brought in because of a new patient. A young boy was brought in by his parents, and it turned out he was possessed and needed an exorcism. Oliver was shocked by this treatment, as well as the treatment of other patients. For example Lana was given electroshock therapy for her homosexuality (actually in order to shut her up), and he was appalled by this.
The patient turned out to be the real possessed deal, throwing people across the room and revealing dirty little secrets. We learned that Sister Jude used to be a very very naughty woman! Seems she liked to sing and dance in officers’ clubs, and later sing and dance in their beds. Fifty three of them to be exact! It seems Sister Jude has some demons of her own . . .
During the exorcism Lana and Grace tried to make an escape. Lana told Grace that she knew of a tunnel they could use. Grace wanted Kit to come too, but Lana refused. Grace seems to believe he is innocent. Grace brought him with her to the escape anyway, and Lana refused to go through with it and called the guards. June was pleased with her and offered her a reward . . . she would watch Grace and Kit be punished by each receiving 20 lashes on their bare buttocks, and Lana also got to choose the cane. Kit however said it was his idea, he made Grace do it. Therefore June spared Grace and gave Kit 40 lashes! My guess is this will make Lana think differently about Kit from now on . . .
Elsewhere, we learned Dr. Arden has his own creepy fetish. He likes to hire hookers and abuse them. He hired one to dress up as a nun. However she later found a whole bunch of photos in his dresser. They were photos of women being tied up and punished, and some photos which seemed to be of dead and mutilated bodies. Wow what a twisted bunch is running this asylum! The hooker nun managed to bite him and flee his place.
On the outside Lana’s girlfriend Wendy was crying to her friends about Lana. She wanted to recant her signature/statement and get Lana out. Later that night the killer found her in her house and seemingly did away with her. So we definitely know it’s not Kit, but we kinda knew that already. We can probably discount aliens, as this thing was either a mutant or wearing the skin of its victims so we couldn’t see it’s face. If it’s not Arden’s “pets” then I am gunna bet it’s either Arden himself or Kit’s deranged friends from the first episode. We did learn that Kit’s wife was found headless, so he thinks she still may be alive and with the aliens.
The episode ended with the boy getting the exorcism dying, and the demon apparently invading Sister Mary Eunice!
