They may not be great about showing anything but a 20-second long promo for the next episode while we’re waiting (I’ve been spoiled by AMC shows that release actual clips, even short ones, and American Horror Story Season One would send exclusive short clips to Dread Central last year) but you need to see this photo FX released from Episode 7, “Dark Cousins”, airing this Wednesday! Does she look like an angel to you? If I woke up and saw this standing in my bedroom, especially between me and the door, I’d better be wearing Depends (which we don’t exactly have in the house), or we’d need new sheets. At best.
Also, who’s the patient? We haven’t seen any black patients at Briarcliff, have we? We had the Hispanic woman referred to only as “The Mexican” (and not just in private, either). It’s 1964 and almost all the Briarcliff staff aren’t exactly forward-thinking. I’m surprised there isn’t some segregated ward. From the looks of his arm, his the guy made a serious suicide attempt, but failed. We get a strong feeling that one way or another, Frances Conroy’s character will be helping the poor guy out with that… fast.

American Horror Story: Asylum is getting a little divine intervention this Wednesday (FX, 10/9c) when Season 1’s Frances Conroy guest stars as a character exec producer Ryan Murphy previously dubbed “the ultimate angel.”
But does Conroy’s spiritual being enter Briarcliff with good or bad intentions? Two key pieces of evidence suggest it’s the latter.
Exhibit A: The logline for the episode refers to her as a “dark angel” and notes that Sister Mary Eunice is “petrified” of her.
Exhibit B: The following ominous looking image from the outing.
