AHS Freak Show Recap – Episode 4 Edward Mordrake (Part 2)

Edward Mordrake (Part 2)

Twisty the Clown stars in Episode 4 of AHS Freak Show entitled Edward Mordrake Part 2

So here’s what got my freak on (and off) about Episode 4 (entitled Edward Mordrake, Part 2) of FX’s American Horror Story Freak Show:

Freak On:

  • Twisty the Clown (John Carroll Lynch) got his back story! And you might want to skip ahead to my ‘What the FREAK Just Happened?‘ section to find out more on this…Edward Mordrake in Episode 4 entitled Edward Mordrake Part 2 of FXs AHS Freak Show 2
  • Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley). Thank god his story improved this week. Seriously loved the ‘Are You Freak Enough For My Carnival?‘ game show feel to this episode.
  • Pretty sure Dot and Bette (Sarah Paulson) are going to do away with Maggie Esmerelda (Emma Roberts) thanks to the goo goo eyes Jimmy Darling (Evan Peters) is sending her way.
  • Speaking of Maggie and Jimmy Darling Penishands – the whole Twisty the Clown escapade was just brilliantly scary! Old school scary horror at it’s finest.

Freak Off:

  • Or more to the point – Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange) gets her legs off! Really? That qualifies as a snuff film? Maybe I’m too jaded… Either way, I thought the point of a snuff film was that the person DIED?!Jessica Lange stars as Elsa Mars in AHS Freak Show Episode 4
  • And still on the subject of Elsa: the toilet seat from hell. Making a guy sit down on a toilet of broken glass? Just no AHS.
  • The freaks no longer being freaks thanks to Maggie gushing over how Penishands saved the day in relation to the capture of the serial killer. Isn’t a bit too early in the season for this?
  • Twisty dying. Who’s the big bad now? *scratches head* Oh yeah, Dandy Mott (Finn Wittrock). Not sure he can pull it off – even if he does finally make his first kill and starts wearing Twisty’s mask.
  • No song this week. I like the songs sent from the future.

What the FREAK Just Happened?

  • I feel sorry for poor old Twisty. This alone makes the writers winners for me and Freak Show the standout season of American Horror Story as a result.

  2. When you feel bad for the crazy serial killer, you know someone’s doing some good writing. But I think it’s due, in part, to something said by one of your country’s finest actors, Kirk Lazarus: “Everybody knows you never go full retard.” And that’s one of the reasons Twisty was able to be tragic. And like Edward Mordrake said: “Dwarfs. I hate ’em, you hate ’em.” Or something like that. I loved the episode. And leave it to the Germans to screw up a snuff film.
