I think she's motivated mainly by Dr. Arden's monsters. She protects him to protect them.

Seemed like Dr. Arden had something to blackmail the Monsignor with.

"If you do open that window, the light will illuminate everything in Briarcliff....and I mean everything."

That's when the Monsignor stops and decides to go along with Arden's plan.

Re: American Horror Story: Asylum (Spoilers)

I finally caught up today, watching the last three episodes.

Bloody Face? Nailed it!



I think the show is coming together nicely. Some very intense stuff going on. That "conversion" scene was making my skin crawl, as were the scenes in Thredson's basement.

Good grief, who thinks this stuff up?

Completely outrageous and wildly entertaining.

It was very disturbing/uncormfortable watching Thredson rape Lana. Is she now pregnant with Bloody Face 2? Probably. Lana just cannot catch a break. She escapes Thredson only to hitch a rise with a suicidal woman hating nutjob who kills himself, wrecking the car and she wakes up back in the asylum. That's some serious fucked up shit.

Re: American Horror Story: Asylum (Spoilers)

Great stuff. I guess I'm changing my answer above and saying yes it looks like Thredson and Lana conceive future Bloody Face.

I love the scene later where he's frantic and says "we really need to figure this out!" and she's trying to listen and the question is "do I choke you or stab you?"

Great to see Frances Conroy again! I'm really digging this whole old cast in new roles thing.

I guess Kit really is a little off in his head? Hmm....

Re: American Horror Story: Asylum (Spoilers)

I don't get why they wouldn't, like...question Lana as to how the hell she got out. Seems like maybe the police would go there before sending her back to Briarcliff.

Also...They've changed Bloodyface like every episode. First, horrific conversion therapy with a corpse guy, then mommy issues, then rape?

Re: American Horror Story: Asylum (Spoilers)

It was refreshing to see Frances Conroy back, this time as the Angel of Death. I liked the exchange between her and the demon-possessed Sister Mary Eunice. The angel sensed something different about the nun, something that "resides inside the sweet innocent girl." "You're one of us, but a fallen one." For a moment there, the real Mary Eunice was begging for death.

Poor Grace. Like Lana, she's been through a lot, except now she's dead after shortly being reunited with Kit.

What ever happened to the alien mythology? It was part of the series at the beginning.

I don't think they've forgotten the aliens. Who do you think operated on Grace? They made a point of establishing that Arden didn't perform that operation, even though everybody assumed he did.

"Sterilization?"

He wasn't dissembling there. He was genuinely baffled.

Re: American Horror Story: Asylum (Spoilers)

So this confirms what's been said earlier about DM's appearance on the show.

The whole sterilization bit--i didn't get that at first, thinking Dr. Arden really did a botched hysterectomy on Grace. I thought Arden was just playing innocent when confronted by Sister Mary Eunice.

Except Dr. Arden gave Grace the immortality drug, so...

Isn't that Ian McShane as the crazed Santa next week? That should be good.

Man, poor Lana cannot catch a break!



What's up with the little girl surviving the car crash? There's something fishy there.

Loved the Angel of Death. "Are you ready for me now?"

Ian McShane as Psycho Santa. Awesome!

How naive of Sister Jude to actually be convinced by Dr. Arden to come back to Briarcliff and try to defeat Mary Eunice. Based on the preview of next week's episode, she's going to be chained to her bed and locked up like other patients.

EDIT:

I especially liked the part when Dr. Arden gave those ruby earrings to Mary Eunice as a Christmas gift. He told her the story of how he got them from a Jewish woman in a concentration camp. The woman came from wealth, and her husband was an influential doctor. She often complained about stomach problems, and so one day Arden decided to follow her to the latrine. Then he saw her retrieving her earrings, which she had apparently swallowed, from her own excrement. She died from internal hemorrhage, and Arden ended up taking the earrings. He was rather disappointed by Mary Eunice's thrilled reaction as opposed to being repulsed by the story of the "shit-stained" earrings.
