American Horror Story Freak Show: Orphans gives Elsa the chance to mourn about the loss of one pin head, the male version of the duo named, appropriately enough. Salt. At the start of the show an inconsolable Pepper refuses to leave the corpse of Salt and the other freaks are trying to persuade the mourning woman that the body must be moved. Elsa speaks of how much she is effected by the death of one of her monsters. Desiree is reading to Pepper and when she attempts to leave, the pin head throws a fit. Elsa and Des speak of it and Mars reveals the backstory of how she obtained Pepper, Ma Petite and Salt.
American Horror Story: Freak Show just got really freaky, with its latest episode, titled very appropriately Tupperware Party Massacre, and heads off into the stratosphere exceeding all prior bounds of oddities in the season thus far. Dandy Mott making his own “mother puppet” which is in reality his own Dot and Bette puppet, after killing the Avon lady started the show off properly, setting the murderous tone for the rest of the show. *And on a sidenote, how many viewers can remember when the Avon ladies used to come to the front door and those adverts on the telly, “Avon Calling.” Ah the nostalgia…*
In American Horror Story Freak Show: Bullseye, Elsa marks the spot when she brings out the spinning wheel which was part of her act some time ago. Bearded lady Ethel Darling asks Elsa why she has brought “that old thing” out and Mars says they need something to liven up the show since the twins “left.” In reality, the leader of the troupe obviously remembers all too well the last time she sang in front of a paying crowd and the end result. Now that she has driven Bette and Dot away and “sold” them to Dandy Mott and his mother, Elsa is looking for something to keep her in the spot of main attraction.
American Horror Story Freak Show used the second half of the Edward Mordrake two parter to show the origins and tears of Twisty the clown. When the legendary carny myth showed up at the freak show’s Jupiter, Florida campground, drawn by Elsa’s rehearsal on Halloween, it seemed the the purveyor of the attraction would be the victim required by the “boogeyman” of the circus world. Instead, the “two-faced” ghost, or demon, learned of several freaks’ deepest secrets, sins and hopelessness. A penalty that all had to pay after Mordrake visited them.
American Horror Story Edward Mordrake Part 2: The Darkest Hour
In Edward Mordrake Part 2 of American Horror Story Freak Show the demon headed myth has arrived at the Jupiter, Florida camp to question the freaks about their darkest hour, the worst moment of their lives and those with the most blood and pain on their hands will be doomed to join the legend and his troupe. At first the dark legend speaks to the “seal boy” and the half-woman. Their tales are sad and bring a tear to the demon on the back of Mordrake’s head. Each have their darkest moments and have committed “sin.”
