Did I really say she was the purest person of those running Briarcliff?
That statement is again confirmed after Dr. Arden performs another vengeful surgery, this time on the fake Anne Frank after her husband brings her back to the asylum for treatment.
With Charlotte's husband watching, Dr. Arden conducts a trans-orbital lobotomy to cure Charlotte of her personality disorder.
Fake Anne Frank's stay at Briarcliff lasted two episodes. Anne, we hardly knew ye.
Last week, I guessed that Bloody Face could be the Monsignor. I was wrong, but Thredson was the least likely choice out of anyone in Briarcliff to be the serial killer.
Maybe the scene where he forced Lana to touch herself should have clued me in.
Grace is visited in her cell by a bright light. The light turns out to be the aliens and Alma Walker. It's unclear what they did to Grace, or if she had the sterilization procedure ordered by Sister Jude. All we see is blood flowing out from her body and that's usually a bad sign. With Kit, Shelley and Lana gone, Grace is one of the few remaining main characters left in the asylum.
What we learned:
The big twist was Dr. Thredson's double life as psychiatrist and Bloody Face. Thredson framed Kit for the murders and is holding Lana hostage for the next stage of his plan.
With Sister Jude out of the way, Sister Mary Eunice is planning to extend her role as Dr. Arden's accomplice.
What to expect next week:
We should learn more about Thredson's role as Bloody Face, including what food products he uses to make the mask (nutmeg anyone?)
Monsignor Timothy Howard's friendship with Dr. Arden will be further explained and Sister Jude may be forced to leave Briarcliff.
