It's been a long and winding road for the freaks in this season's AMERICAN HORROR STORY. Death, betrayal, sass, and some good, old-fashioned blood baths (literally and figuratively) sprinkled in for good measure made for quite a show.

My fellow recapper and TV-obsessed friend Kara McCoy and I did just that. Join us, but beware: spoilers abound! (more...)
