AHS Freak Show Recap – Episode 5 Pink Cupcakes

Pink Cupcakes

Sarah Paulson stars as Dot and Bette in Episode 5 (entitled Pink Cupcakes) of Season 4 AHS Freak Show

So here’s what got my freak on (and off) about Episode 5 (entitled Pink Cupcakes) of FX’s American Horror Story Freak Show:

Freak On:

  • 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.Francis Conroy and Finn Witrock star in Episode 5 (entitled Pink Cupcakes) of Season 4 AHS Freak Show
  • 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).Jessica Lange and Denis O'Hare star in Episode 5 (entitled Pink Cupcakes) of Season 4 AHS Freak Show
  • 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.

Freak Off:

  • 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!Finn Wittrock stars as Dandy Mott in Episode 5 (entitled Pink Cupcakes) of Season 4 AHS Freak Show
  • 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.

  1. Dandy Mott is probably going to grow up to like Huey Lewis and the News, and will be a big fan of Genesis’ “Invisible Touch”. Also: Worst. Serial. Killer. EVAR!

    Also, I don’t know how desperate gay whores were in the 1950’s, but all the points you make about going to an abandoned bus in the middle of nowhere–yeah, you split that scene, baby. SPLIT!
