AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM: 2.05 “I Am Anne Frank, Part II”
Well, the big mystery has been revealed. In last night’s final moments, we found out who Bloody Face really is…and if you haven’t yet watched the episode, I’d suggest you stop reading now before I make the big reveal myself.
Much earlier than anticipated, we finally discover who Bloody Face is — a maker of lamps, with lampshades made of human flesh, and bowls of human skulls. Turns out the human mind is the only thing that Dr. Thredson is interested in, as he himself donned the hideous mask and revealed himself as Bloody Face after freeing Lana from what she thought was the worse imprisonment of her life.
Based on the fact that she’s now chained to a white tile floor with her lover’s dead body at her feet, I’m guessing she’ll find out pretty soon that she was wrong.
I’m curious to hear from you all whether you suspected Thredson was the culprit. While I haven’t spent much time figuring out who Bloody Face was (I still think the big question was a rather boring one from the start), I didn’t suspect Thredson. Though, perhaps I should have. Bloody Face would have had to be someone we’ve met before and someone who could come and go from the asylum. That takes Kit out of the picture. And possibly Arden — who, frankly, was too easy to begin with. We established he was a man, which really only left Thredson.
Then you add in the fact that he showed up the minute Kit was accused, which is convenient timing. He knew first that Lana’s girlfriend was missing and possibly a victim of Bloody Face. He convinced Kit to confess (not sure how Kit fell into that trap). But then again, hindsight is always 20/20, right?
I am a bit creeped out to see where we go from here. I kind-of wish AHS would go the traditional route of just killing people off already. I’m not really interested in seeing him torture poor Lana week after week. But I guess we’ll see.
Meanwhile, we had Grace with her own alien abduction…or surgery. I guess we still have to find out which she really experienced. But if Kit is any indication, it was an alien abduction, and his wife is now pregnant with an alien baby. I wonder if Grace is next.
Poor Kit is now out of the asylum, again headed to a new jail. This time, his jail has an electric chair. I always want to root for the innocent, but let’s be honest: This is AHS, and he’s probably a horrific goner.
As for Sister Jude, uggh. Does anyone else not care? Also, wouldn’t you still be a nun, even if you got fired? Just moved to a different place? I realize pride is an issue for her, since she’s no long in charge, but still. Her just walking out seemed a bit ridiculous.
I won’t go into “Anne Frank” because I missed last week’s episode, but seeing her post-lobotomy was rather chilling. But a great way to end the episode, nonetheless.
