It was a busy night for the Angel of Death on the latest episode of "American Horror Story." 

The last time we saw the merciful Angel, she was coming to Monsignor Timothy Howard’s rescue after he was nailed to a cross. But she didn’t come to relieve the monsignor of his life.

“You have more work to do,” she tells him. “The devil is at Briarcliff and the nun has to cast her out.”

Instead the monsignor casts the devil out himself by throwing the demonized Mary Eunice three floors to her death.

“I’m tired of fighting,” the real Mary Eunice cries out. “I want to let go.”

“I’ll take both of you,” the Angel replies.

The Angel of Death had one more body to claim after Mary Eunice, except there was no body.

Dr. Arden decided to relive his Nazi days by latching on to the body of Mary Eunice as she slowly rolled into a crematory oven.

It was a fitting death for the devil and its pawn. Let’s retrace the series of events that led to the demise of two of the show’s central characters.

Crazy train

Sister Jude’s endured a fall from grace the last few weeks. After Mary Eunice catches her former mentor with a cucumber in her cell used for “diddling herself,” Mary Eunice sentences Sister Jude to electroshock therapy.

The treatment leaves Sister Jude dazed and confused. The nun walks up to a jukebox installed by Mary Eunice and turns on the song “The Name Game” by Shirley Ellis.

With a strange mix of singing and dancing, the scene that ensues is show creator Ryan Murphy’s attempt of merging his “Glee” creativity with “American Horror Story.”

Thankfully Sister Jude walks away after singing “Lana banana” three-hundred times, just before Dr. Oliver Thredson can make his grand entrance by rejoining the Briarcliff community.

Mean mistreater

Sister Mary Eunice hires Thredson as a full-time Briarcliff employee and he gets right to work by blackmailing Kit.

Thredson shows Kit the miracle of Grace and their newborn child, prompting Kit to surrender the hiding spot of his confession tapes.

“There’s an impulse in you that runs deeper than your murder complex and that’s your savior complex,” Thredson tells Kit.

Unfortunately for Thredson, Lana gets to the tapes first and replaces them with a children’s book.

The bad news for Lana is that she will soon be trading in that book for “Raising future serial killers for dummies” since her abortion attempt was unsuccessful.
