We get a nice explanation of Thredson wanting to kill one of his victims because her "skin was fuzzy like a peach" and he "wanted to feel it."
That's change you can count on. Thredson probably envisions father-son bonding time as the kind of day that revolves around dissecting birds and skinning cats.
"I always wanted to know what it was like inside the mind of a killer," Lana says, thinking the abortion worked. "Now I know."
Lana and Kit get their confession, but Thredson has the last laugh as Sister Mary Eunice frees the doctor and tells Lana, "Your attempt to murder this child was unsuccessful. And I know something else. It's a boy."
The monsignor has a penchant for trusting homicidal felons and former Nazis, so it's hard to feel sympathetic for the guy.
The one person who does feel sorry for Howard is the Angel of Death. As the monsignor begs for help, the angel gives a simple reply: "I'm here."
Dr. Arden retraces his steps to where Grace disappeared and realizes that both women abducted (Grace and Alma) had adult relations with Kit before vanishing.
That's a bad resume for any bachelor, but Kit has bigger problems after agreeing to a near-death experiment that Arden hopes will draw out the aliens.
All goes according to plan as Arden's medicine causes Kit's heart to stop beating. As Kit convulses and consequently dies, a vast white light spreads across the asylum. Arden follows the white light to a pregnant Grace, alive and cared for by Pepper, the weirdest inmate in Briarcliff.
Emerson had a unique take on his one-night killing spree that ended the lives of 18 people.
"Because of what I did, there are 18 more people in heaven," he told a judge examining Frank's murder.
If he made it to heaven, Emerson would probably "forgive" his 18 victims like he did Sister Jude, for putting him away in Briarcliff.
I'm still waiting for one of Briarcliff's resident evil lunatics (Emerson, Thredson, Dr. Arden) to betray Sister Mary Eunice.
Thredson junior's psychiatrist should have run when she heard the words "skinned" and "animals." She got her own visit from the Angel of Death, as we see both the psychiatrist and McDermott covered in blood.
What we learned
Thredson and Lana will breed a future Bloody Face. Even in death, Thredson will haunt Lana.
Sister Jude got tired of the song "Dominique" playing non-stop. She really is prepared for change in Briarcliff.
What to expect next episode
The monsignor survives Emerson's assault. Sister Mary Eunice said she wanted to "save souls all the way to Rome," so her alliance with the monsignor looks to continue as long as she can use him to spread evil.
