So here’s what got my freak on (and off) about Episode 5 (entitled Pink Cupcakes) of FX’s American Horror Story Freak Show:
- Dandy Mott (Finn Wittrock) going full serial killer. Now his over acting finally works! His mum helping him fix his little ‘accidents’ is the perfect example of parenting done wrong.
- Speaking of, anyone who offers you a lot of money and takes you to an abandoned bus in the woods, run before asking questions. DO NOT turn around and get naked. And Dandy, make sure they are dead the first time round. Having a victim come round while you are sawing their arm off is not cool dude!
- Mr. Stanley Penis (Denis O’Hare) messing with Elsa Mars’ (Jessica Lange) head. Ditto Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson).
- Is that a clit in your pants or are you just happy to see me? Yes, it turns out Desiree Dupree (Angela Bassett) is ALL woman after she miscarries. Of course this makes her completely unappealing to her husband now who is a fan of the boy and not the girl…
- …speaking of, nice little crossover going on in the gay bar with Dell (Michael Chiklis) and Dandy crossing paths there. Wonder if this will be important later on?
- Cupcakes. Who knew FX could make me dislike cupcakes?
- Dora’s (Patti LaBelle) daughter calling Mrs. Mott (Frances Conroy) and getting a whole bunch of ‘I’m a good mother’ talk that made her feel incredibly uncomfortable.
- Is Miss Maggie (Emma Roberts) gonna be on board or not? Will she help kill the freaks? Only time will tell, but it’s something to dwell on for the time being.
- Poor Jimmy Penishands (Evan Peters) not copping a break when it comes to the ladies.
- Dandy Mott getting all naked exercising and monologuing. No more. I cannot ever unsee that FX!
- Elsa turning up on Mrs. Mott’s doorstep with Dot and Bette in tow.
What the FREAK Just Happened?
- Those scenes where Mr. Penis is daydreaming about how successful he is going to be with all his freak-ariums – EXCEPT FX DOESN’T LET YOU KNOW IT’S A DREAM AND YOU THINK IT’S REALLY HAPPENING! Not on FX. I had several heart attacks in this episode.
