Since Episode Six Of American Horror Story Asylum Will Tell Dr. Thredson/Bloody Face’s Backstory, We Wonder What It’ll Turn Out To Be…

OK, so the above poll was basically put up to lighten the mood a little. I’m practically counting the hours till Wednesday at 10PM, but Murphy has also said it will be “the darkest episode we’ve ever done”, which scares me more than a little.

We’re pretty confident Dr. Bloody Face doesn’t just have serious issues with women (no male victims yet, I’m guessing there won’t be, unless it’s to throw off investigators, or some other sort of calculated move). Zach Quinto has said in more than one post-episode interview (after the reveal at the end of “I Am Anne Frank, Part Two”) that Oliver Thredson “has major mommy issues,” which we also sort of guessed.

We’re also pretty curious how horrifying it will turn out to be, but here’s a hint many viewers may have already picked up on. In episode two, during the exorcism, the Jeb-Demon suddenly turned and spoke in an old woman’s voice to Dr. Thredson as she looked him in the eye. “Oh Oliver, look what you’ve become. I’m so glad I gave you up,” it said to him (or something very close), and it was the only time we’ve really ever seen him break his composure.  Rattled, he gave the possessed farm boy another strong sedative… or was it? Soon after, he (Jeb-Demon) went into cardiac arrest, and left his body right before the moment of death to possess Sister Mary Eunice. Did Thredson purposely give him a fatal dose, to shut him up, or kill anything that even reminded him of his horrible childhood?

If you’ve got a theory and want to sound off (or just sound off, period), please do leave a reply below. I hope it isn’t something we’ve seen done more than once, but I’m thinking his birth mother gave him up to a foster mother–or relative– who really did some damage. One theory I keep reading is that whoever it was suspected he was gay–even if he wasn’t–and gave him some especially nasty “aversion-conversion therapy,” whether done by a medical professional (very bad), or doing it herself at home (even worse). I could buy that. I just hope she doesn’t make him dress up in women’s clothes, lock him in the closet, and tell him all women are disgusting whores who will never love him the way she does.  I have faith in the creative, team, though …and I don’t think it will be predictable.
