While We Work On Reviewing/Recapping Episode 10 of American Horror Story Asylum, “The Name Game”, Read Our Insane, NSFW Notes For Comic Relief (Spoilers!)

That… just… fucking …wow. We here at Horror Boom were so stunned (mostly by finding out the real reason the writers had Sister Jude refer to that spiral staircase in the main lobby of Briarcliff  as “The Staircase to Heaven)” while taking notes on The Name Game (Episode 10, aired January 2nd at 10:00 PM on FX), that they didn’t come out looking too organized.  Usually we’ll start by getting out our comically thick notebook and writing down the title of the episode, then under that, a list of 1-10 “Things We Learned” to fill in. This time it came out looking like the things Mrs. Horror Boom kept loudly telling the TV. Well, it was a toss-up whether I spent more of my time watching Episode Ten with A. my jaw agape (not unlike our cats do when they see a jumbo-sized bird out on the deck and just sit there indoors, ten feet away, wide-eyed and frozen like statues,  so dazzled they keep  forgetting to close their mouths) or B. exclaiming profanities loudly enough everyone in the house can hear.

So since that episode was just the slightest bit dark (other than the choreographed go-go dance and song number to, gee, what was the song again …The Name Game, which was hilarious and sure kept things interesting) with what, two BIG character deaths and something like five Raspers  executed suddenly but efficiently by Dr. Nazi, we could use a giggle. So we took photos of my four pages of notes, and you may notice that my composure slipped just the tiniest bit…

Here’s #1 still starting out by taking notes i s traditional manner:

then it escalates FAST. P2 of notes:


Then I seriously forgot I was supposed to take notes, but did it on autopilot or something…


“Oh no oh no oh no” = Thredson pulling the reel, wrapped in a blanket, from the secret hiding space, “oh YES!” = “I don’t want to ruin it for you, but Spot jumps.”

and finally, when Dr.Nazi says goodbye and closes the door behind them…

How I managed to cheer and write at the same time, I still have no idea!

American Horror Story Asylum – NEW Spoilers For “The Name Game” (Episode 10) And “Spilt Milk” (Episode 11) – Plus The Finale Title! SPOILER WARNING (Naturally)!

It’s not so much that we “won’t” tell you the source of these spoilers, so much as “can’t”. They were posted anonymously and then re-posted… but they are episode descriptions and we’re pretty confident they’re genuine. Oh, Sister Jude… I’m really worried about her…

The title of the finale (which we don’t consider a spoiler), is “Madness Ends.” That could mean a lot of things.  However, highlight the below light-colored text for those spoilers we mentioned, which have not been released to major media outlets at the time of this writing. Here at Horror Boom, we stumbled on them while looking for something else American Horror Story Asylum-related that needed documenting…  these do not sound upbeat. I didn’t get a spoiler warning, but I’m giving you one more SPOILER WARNING!

Episode 10: The Name Game (Airing January 2nd, 2013)

The Monsignor resolves to help Sister Mary Eunice battle the Devil within, while the now-powerless Jude is punished severely by the possessed nun. As Dr. Arden brings his experiments to a shocking end, Lana and Kit find themselves at Thredson’s mercy once more.

Episode 11: Spilt Milk (Airing January 9th, 2013)

Sister Claudia and Monsignor Timothy confer on how to make things right… but the Monsignor, still full of ambition, has other plans. The Sister’s intervention changes everything… but happy endings may be hard to come by. Grace brings Kit devastating news about the aliens’ experiments on Alma.

We think we’ll take a  pass on speculating (for right now), but it doesn’t sound good, especially the cast deaths that Murphy promised in “The Name Game”.  We’ll add more to these spoilers if and when they come in. Speculate away, though, in the “Reply” area. You can also contact us via that form if you want to discuss spoiler-y theories.
