Soooo, the next episode, “The Coat Hanger” (that isn’t going to be pretty) airs this Wednesday, December 12th – then there’s going to be a break until January, when they’ll run the last four episodes.* So… well… five more episodes… (sniffle). However, from what Murphy said in this recent, juicy interview (spoilers for “Unholy Night”, and the episodes before it) that there would be FOUR big cliffhangers. I do know one of the characters listed is going to die, but my money is on more than one. I just hope it’s not anyone who’s been extra-entertaining lately. You can vote for up to three below. This show is very hard to second-guess – even if you strongly sense what is coming, we always get surprised by the why and how.
So get a-voting, since we want to know what you think. AND, the “Ten Things We Learned …” for Episode 8, Unholy Night, is almost here. Your writer/editor here went to a holiday party Saturday night and had quite a bit of fun, and quite a bit of “cider” and “Christmas cheer” (I’m not turning down free vodka shots in this economic climate, especially coming from other friends there, old and new, also feeling very
hammered festive)** so that’s why the Sat/Sun deadline didn’t get met. Thanks for being so patient! We’ll make up for it, promise… we’ve been gathering semi-rare behind-the-scenes goodies and galleries for American Horror Story Asylum all night.
*I’ll get you the air dates after I find them, I DO know there’s no episode on 12/19; Ryan Murphy says the final four episodes will roar into the new year in January. The last I looked, the IMDB page was out of date, but it did give one upcoming episode title, “Spilled Milk”. Huh… sensing a pattern here… and it’s going to be fucking awesome!
**BIG thanks to anyone reading this who helped me get on and off the stage in 5-inch go-go boots without falling on my ass in front of everybody–you know who you are!
