Meet Bloody Face. Yeah, he fooled me too.
American Horror Story ASYLUM (2:5) I Am Anne Frank pt 2 threw me for a POWERFUL loop! I did suspect Dr. Thredson (Quinto) because he was so damned likable. I fell for his desire to “help” those who were accidentally imprisoned in Briarcliff. I don’t know what’s real anymore. I don’t know who the bad guy is anymore. I don’t know who to trust anymore. I Am Anne Frank picks up after last week’s turbulent fiasco, and Dr. Arden’s (Cromwell) injury–forced hysterectomy, alien intrusion, and Kit being hauled off to death row. I’m not liking where all this is going.
Sister Jude (Lange) hires a Nazi finder to find out about Dr. Arden’s past. If Jude has an opportunity to see Arden shirtless and if he is from the collective of Nazi scientist, he would have his blood type tattooed on his arm. If she is to obtain this information, she has to be careful. We don’t want Arden in on Sister Jude’s curiosity. We already know where that got Shelley (Sevigny)–thrown down a flight of steps and gawked at by elementary students. That was messed up.
The episode is about “Anne Frank” and what good did her story do than to distract what all’s going on in Briarcliff. So she shot Dr. Arden in the leg and maybe exposed him as a Nazi scientist. Her poor husband just wants his wife back the way she once was, and he got his wish–and Arden got a little payback via lobotomy. Now, there are smiles all around.
Kit (Peters) and Grace’s (Brocheré) pending sterilizations were briefly thwarted by Kit’s confession to Dr. Thredson–fake! The good doctor was supposed to convince the authorities that Kit is mentally insane and not fit to stand trial. So he would have spent the rest of his life in Briarcliff. But he could not have Kit locked up. Because he wanted to continue with his insatiable lust to kill and skin women. Grace was sent under the knife, and just before Kit was dragged away by authorities–she told him that his wife is still alive–and from the looks of it very pregnant. It seems that the same aliens that visited Kit and his wife visited her in solitary. Aliens. What is up with that?
Thredson and poor Lana. After making her suffer through aversion therapy, she will now be victim to “Bloody Face” i.e. Dr. Thredson. The dude has lamps made of human skin–candy dishes made out of human skulls! Dude has issues. After donning the Bloody Face mask with Lana’s dead friend’s teeth attached, he told Lana to go on and give her friend a kiss–she wouldn’t bite.
Are we having fun yet?
