We hope we’re not too late to the party on this, but oh boy, do we EVER have confirmation —and a photo! The photo below is from American Horror Story Season One, AKA American Horror Story: Murder House, but you can bet your ass there’s a photo in this article of Dylan McDermott more or less in costume (just without the home-made face mask). Better than the one I put in the Featured Image, since I purposely used a grainy, slightly overexposed one in the interest of spoilers.
But wait, there’s more! Ryan Murphy confirms it, but says we won’t find out what he wants, why he’s there, or what his agenda is until Episode Nine next week, titled… wait for it… THE COAT HANGER.
“I really wanted Dylan to play a sexy, no-education, dirty, drug-addict, grifter. And there you have it.”

Well, OK then! The current theory, which we’re jumping on the bandwagon with as of this writing, is that Dr. Thredson got Lana Winters pregnant while he was raping her. I guess that doesn’t make it legitimate rape to certain shit-for-brains members of the GOP who have such ignorance as far as the reproductive system that I’m surprised he figured out how to have sex with himself, let alone another person …and I’m going to get WAY too worked up here remembering all that crazy bullshit, so back to American Horror Story Asylum, where things make a little more sense. Anyway, I wonder if she realizes she’s pregnant at Briarcliff, and the only way she can deal with it is
a coat-hanger the title of that episode. However, I think Lana’s smart enough to know that would kill her if she tried it, but I doubt she’d raise the baby– I’m thinking she gives birth to it and then puts the baby boy up for adoption, and he ends up in a series of foster homes growing up, until he discovers one way or another who his father was and what he did. Maybe Lana DOES end up Bloody Face/Oliver Thredson’s “story”, and achieves journalistic success doing it. If that’s the case, I hope she writes a book on it and gets a fucking Pulitzer Prize for journalism.
Today is my first day back on American Horror Story. Fasten your seat belts & get your air-sickness bags ready. It’s time to party! (Tweet from McDermott on 11/2)
Let’s face it, there aren’t going to be many happy endings for these characters, and Lana has gone through such a series of nightmares and gates of Hell, I want a happy ending for her. Those “imposters” that modern-day Bloody Face killed are probably part of some extremist cult fan-club (kind of like in A Horrible Way To Die, a horror film not without some flaws, but I totally bought the premise of a Facebook “fan page” or just a blog that got totally fucking out of hand). Time will tell, though I wish there were sixteen more episodes of the season instead of six (soon to be five after the Christmas episode, “Unholy Night,” airs in a little over 24 hours).Looks like the modern-day Bloody Face is sporting plenty of ink on his arms. I don’t think they’re McDermott’s actual tats, so if the son of Bloody Face picked them out, I really want to see how sick they are!
