Wow, that was a really fun headline to write: Revenge of Pepper the Pinhead! I know who she takes revenge on–and for– too. Read on for more –much more!
OK, first up: I’ll be posting a much less spoiler-y version of this soon, and you’ll need to highlight certain portions with your mouse to be able to read them (for the less spoiler-y version; you can read this one just fine). The below post, however, is going to contain spoilers– yet nothing REALLY major, like the identity of Bloody Face, what really is going on with Kit, a character’s death or someone murdering someone else, who gets eaten by Raspers, that kind of thing. I don’t have any idea what the answer to any of those are, though I could give predictions. I will also be clear when I am speculating on something and when it has been stated. Cool?
How about we start out with the FX preview (in HD) that they showed right after the episode that aired on Halloween…
OK, first, I have some official episode descriptions, air dates, and titles, from IMDB (and a couple other official sites), and it looks like we’re going to have some serious bombshells about character’s back-stories dropped on us in this week’s episode, I Am Anne Frank: Part 1 and on the November 14th episode, I Am Anne Frank: Part 2. As anyone who saw the preview for this week’s episode knows, Franka Potente (playing a character named Kassie, I predict she’ll be going after Dr. Arden because he tortured/killed a family member or someone she loved) will start her guest-starring arc this week on the November 7th episode. FX hasn’t been especially subtle about her making accusations that Dr. Arden is a war criminal. No one’s said the word Nazi yet, but that’s what all the evidence points to …so far. So far, Potente is only listed as a guest star for the two-parter, but who knows? Here’s the episode description for tomorrow’s show, after the jump!
A new patient claiming to be Anne Frank exposes Arden’s past. Kit learns why Grace was admitted to Briarcliff. (OoooOOOO!)

Question: I know you’ve talked about working with all these great female actresses in some of the reviews, but I haven’t you talk about what it’s like to work with James Cromwell who is…I don’t know what he’s doing to you, but it’s really scary.
Sevigny: Oh, it gets much scarier. He was good. I mean I was a huge fan of his. I actually saw him in a café right before we started shooting and I went up to him introduced myself and he just like, “I’m so looking forward to chopping off your legs.” Yes, he was great. I mean you know he was really into rehearsing the scenes before and really exploring it to its fullest, so that was kind of nice. Sometimes people just go in and just hit their marks and he really wanted to work everything out before. He was really … in that regard.
Question: I’m curious what the heck is “Shelley’s” attitude going to be now in the wake of losing both of her legs at the operating table there. What’s your disposition going to be; she’s going to be pretty pissed off I’d have to imagine.
Sevigny: I think she’s pretty pissed off. I think she feels pretty helpless and I think in the beginning you kind of like not so much rooting for her. You think she’s this bad girl and then see her helping Evan’s character and … character trying to escape and you realize that she’s pretty selfless in that regard. I think after she gets in the clutches of the evil doctor, I think you’re then kind of more rooting for her and hoping that she can escape or find a way out. So I think the character goes through a lot. The audience goes through a lot with the character.
Question: Is that kind of what’s next ahead for her, trying to find a way out of this predicament, given the new disadvantage she has?
Sevigny: Oh, yes, and her disadvantage has only increased. She becomes more and more helpless. It’s very tragic, actually.
