American Horror Story: Freakshow “Edward Mordrake part 2”, Episode 4
Two of my favorite characters are gone, Twisty and Edward Mordrake. I didn’t expect Mordrake to stick around long, but still he was fun. As for Twisty, I believe he will be far more psychotic in the mind of Dandy. Clearly when Dandy put that mask on, he invoked Twisty in some way. Both of them in one disturbed mind, and probably ten times as sick and twisted as Twisty was originally. The mask enabled him to kill his maid, something he couldn’t do before. I was a bit confused with Twisty’s story. I’m not sure if he really was molesting children or not. I know he was mentally challenged, but his views on what he did were quite far removed from reality. He justified the kidnapping of the children and murder of the boy’s parents by saying he was helping them in some way. He wasn’t even feeding them.
When he rolled in, and we found out what he was doing, I had a feeling that he had come for Twisty. In a way, it was a happy ending for Twisty. He found a family, a place where he belonged and was accepted. He was no longer alone, though he had Dandy for awhile. I think Dandy even freaked out Twisty.
This version of Dandy should be absolutely terrifying, which means the show will get even better. My guess is that he will be coming for Jimmy, and probably blondie too. I can’t remember her name…oh wait Esmeralda, though that’s not her real name (in the show).
We found out a bit more about these two when Mordrake came to them. We expect that each of the characters in the freak show will have had a very difficult life. These two certainly did. Elsa was nearly taken by Mordrake, right before he went after Twisty (and basically saved Jimmy’s ass). Elsa was born normal, and was a dominatrix in Germany…not a big surprise. The way her legs were cut off by a chainsaw was a bit more shocking. Though I loved how Mordrake put her in her place.
The end, with the townspeople coming to than Jimmy for saving those kids was great. Considering he risked a lot by going to help that girl, it was nice to see that everyone appreciated it. He was nearly killed trying to help a stranger. It looks like next week people start dying, starting with Dot and Bette. I will not be upset about that, as I’ve said previously, I find the two headed woman the most boring character of the bunch. Meep was more interesting. I saw in a promo that Ma Petite gets killed eventually, I will be far more upset about her death. It’s weird, the entire premiere was about Bette and Dot, and now they seem insignificant. Also, since they are no longer making those two characters the center of the show, the show has improved exponentially. What do you think?
