Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley) learned the devastating past of Twisty the Clown (John Carroll Lynch) in the latest episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show.
The demented clown wasn’t always that way and severe bullying in his youth which led to a failed suicide attempt turned him into the clown he became. Mordrake took pity and decided the kindest thing to do would be to end his suffering once and for all. With Twisty now dead the curfew was lifted and the freaks were no longer fearing for their lives.
Elsewhere in the episode Dandy (Finn Wittrock) didn’t take the news of Twisty’s death all that well and Stanley (Denis O’Hare) got closer to Elsa (Jessica Lange) by pretending to be a Hollywood agent.
The next episode of the season is Pink Cupcakes. Stanley and Maggie (Emma Roberts) hatch a plan to murder the Freaks and a health scare reveals Desiree (Angela Bassett) may not be the oddity she once thought. Matt Bomer guest stars.
