On Last Week’s AHS: Freak Show

On last week’s premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show, we’re taken to Jupiter, Florida in 1952. We meet a traveling freak show that has recently arrived to town. The group of curiosities is led by Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange), a woman proud of her monsters, but may also be holding onto a dying era. The show is not a hit, so she brings in Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson), conjoined twins who recently suffered a trauma. They meet Jimmy Darling (Evan Peters), who has lobster hands, his mother Ethel (Kathy Bates), the bearded woman, and a wide array of freaks from pinheads to little people. As Bette and Dot are brought further into this world, danger is lurking in the distance. Jupiter is in fear over a series of recent murders. Twisty may just be the most horrifying clown to ever exist, and he’s not happy when the freaks come into his murderous territory.

Official Synopsis for AHS: Freak Show “Massacres and Matinees”

A citywide curfew threatens to shut down the Freak Show. A strongman from Ethel’s troubled past arrives at camp. Gloria arranges a terrifying play date for Dandy. The Tattler Twins reveal a talent that could knock Elsa from the spotlight.

AHS: Freak Show airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on FX.
