Who is Mordrake going to kill? He mentions that his vile visage is looking for, “A pure freak, corrupted of flesh, befouled of soul.” The most interesting development would be if it were one of our leading freaks, but it would also derail the season pretty early on if it were someone we know well.
So, of course, someone named “Strong Man” is going to be met with a lot of estrogen-fueled flack. Here he comes, taking control, telling everyone what to do, punching people, introducing MATINEES! How dare he.
We got off to an alright start with this premiere. It lacked the excitement of premieres past, but I’m thinking that this season may crescendo rather than fizzle out.
If Mad Men is the filet mignon of television, American Horror Story is a big, juicy double bacon cheese burger.
