As good as I felt last years show was this one dwarfs it at this point. I love the claustrophobic shooting style and the character revelations are great. Devil in the house!

Nooo Clea!

This season actually scares me. So that's a good thing. The electroshock therapy scene was intense.

Any one else flinching every time they say "Kit Walker" because you're wondering if this kid is the Phantom?

Y'know... Lord of the jungle, the hero who stalks, the beasts call him brother the ghost who walks.

The only thing that annoys me about this show is the present day scenes. They really seem to have no purpose at this point. I do hope they lead somewhere.

I'm starting to wonder if the "little creatures" in the forest are actually the aliens.

I was discussing the premiere with someone at work today, and had a few random thoughts.

So it looks like the alien abduction was real, and the boy was innocent. So is he being tortured into becoming Bloody Face? We see the killer at the end of the episode confronting the girl in the current timeline, but our boy would be in his 70's now...so who was that?

Jessica Lange....she can bring it for an old lady! She's 63. Does that make her a GILF?



Who/what is outside in the woods?

What will happen to our reporter? I imagine it won't be good...



God, I love this show.

Im thinking that thing the nun was feeding is that creature attacking that girl in our timeframe?

From what I've read, the carnivorous creatures (there's more than one) in the woods are not the aliens. These are possibly "Reavers" that will be revealed later, mutant experiments of Dr. Arden. The serial killer that came to be known as Bloody Face (for which Kit is mistaken) is a different entity; perhaps he is one of the mutant experiments, but certainly an extraterrestial doesn't need a knife to murder people.

It was great to get a glimpse of Sister Jude's shameful past as revealed by the demon-possessed guy. It made me wonder how Jessica Lange's character underwent the transformation from being a drunken tramp who accidentally killed a little girl to being a rigid and morally conservative nun in a leadership position.

Zachary Quinto's Dr. Thredson, the court-appointed psychiatrist assigned to Kit, appears to be a man of high ethics and is more sympathetic toward the patients at the asylum. "This is 1964! You still perform exorcism?" "Electro-shocked therapy should no longer be used to treat homosexuality. It should be behavioral modification!"

Dr. Arden is just a scumbag weirdo. Hiring a hooker for a dinner date and having her dressed up in a nun outfit? And what's with the pictures of bound and gagged women? Could he be Bloody Face? He surely has a thing for Sister Mary Eunice, and the devil may have possessed her.

Awesome episode!

I feel like Dr Arden being Bloody Face is too obvious. All his actions and mannerisms scream serial killer, but I think that's to throw us off. Right now, my bet is that Bloody Face is the Monsignor, and Arden is his assistant.

Re: American Horror Story: Asylum (Spoilers)

Some more crazy stuff in episode 2. James Cromwell is awesome in this role. His nun-obsession is seriously creepy.

So many things going on right now, it's too early to know how they're all connected. I just hope they do a good job tying it all together during the season.

Is it though? I'd have thought it's a fairly common fantasy.

Exactly.



Nuns are not sexy. They are scary. They have powers.

If Bloody Face is still alive today (2012), then he/she would be 48 years older (unless there's a copycat killer). The serial killer would have to be pretty young back in 1964 and yet strong enough to kill Adam Levine.

Unless Bloody Face has been possessed by the resident demon. If true, age and mundane strength would likely be irrelevant and augmented by it.

I can relate somewhat. There's a very popular fantasy I don't understand because my mother's a nurse.

Re: American Horror Story: Asylum (Spoilers)

I suspect the nun thing has more juice if you have some sort of Catholic roots.

Growing up, the only nun I had any exposure to was THE FLYING NUN, which wasn't actually the stuff of forbidden fantasies.

(In fact, I recall my dad had to explain to me what a nun was . . . .)
