AHS Freakshow Recap, American Horror Story Freakshow Premiere, AHS Spoilers, American Horror Story Season 4


Are you ready for the 4th season of AHS? Welcome to the American Horror Story: Freakshow. Tune in right here for the live blog and full recap of the premiere we’ve all been waiting for …

The show opens with Sarah Paulson, only showing one head so far … walking into “the gates of hell.” 10:00 p.m.

It’s 1952 in Juniper, Florida. A milkman walks inside a home and the lady of the house seems to be missing as she’s not answering his calls. He then stumbles upon the old woman’s dead body, covered in blood. In an attempt to hunt down the killer, the milkman timidly makes his way upstairs with a rolling pin to defend himself. He opens a closet door and screams … The next thing we see is a woman being raced into an operating room. A nurse then vomits into a trash can. 10:04 p.m.

The nurses begin to talk about the deformed patient when Elsa Mars makes her way down the hallway to visit her “ailing aunt.” 10:06 p.m.

Elsa begins to inquire about the strange patient(s). That’s when we hear about Elsa’s side show … Elsa then disguises herself as a candy-striper and makes her way into the secure wing of the hospital. And, Elsa finds the two-headed woman asleep in her room. Elsa has brought them balloons and the screen fades to black. 10:09 p.m.

Elsa speaks with the conjoined twins (Bette and Dot), asking if they’re virgins and one of them tells Elsa that she masturbates, but the other pretends not to feel it. This angers the other head, who tells Elsa to leave. 10:18 p.m.

The next scene is of a young couple making out. When the young man leaves for a bit, Twisty the clown shows up. He’s probably the scariest clown you’ve ever seen. Before the clown shows the girl his trick, the young man returns. Then, the clown hits them both with his bowling pins and knocks them out. The girl wakes up to her boyfriend being stabbed to death by the clown with a pair of scissors. She makes a run for it. Twisty the clown takes her captive. 10:21 p.m.

Elsa is confronted with news she already knows … that her show is in trouble. We then get to see the smallest woman in the world – Jyoti Amge. Elsa refuses to give up and says she has a plan. 10:24 p.m.

We return from commercial to housewives at a gathering, each taking a turn getting pleasured by Evan Peters’ character Jimmy, the man with warped, extra large fingers. (Twitter was calling him Lobster Boy.) 10:34 p.m.

Elsa visits the twins (Bette and Dot) again and tells them they need to get their stories straight on their mother’s death. 10:35 p.m.

Twisty the Clown strikes again in a family’s home, killing the parents, but abducting their son. 10:36 p.m.

Twisty keeps the boy and the girl in cages side-by-side, scaring them with his tricks and balloon animals. When his balloon animal pops, he begins to throw balls at the children’s cages and pounds on them over and over. 10:40 p.m.

Elsa blackmails the conjoined twins, making them join her sideshow. The twins murdered their mother and one of them stabbed the other, which landed them in the hospital. Elsa says she wants to save the twins … 10:43 p.m.

While one twin is loving life at Elsa’s, the other is depressed and in despair. We also finally meet the bearded lady, played by Kathy Bates. She’s Elsa’s right-hand woman. The twins are the headlining act called “The Siamese Sisters.” 10:50 p.m.

A car of young men drive by and throw glass bottles and Jimmy and some of the others, calling them freaks. 10:53 p.m.

When one of the women with Elsa’s show believes she was taken advantage of sexually by Elsa’s crew of “freaks,” Elsa shows her footage that makes the woman see she “enjoyed it.” 10:58 p.m.

The bearded lady turns out to be Jimmy’s mother. Jimmy wants to leave Elsa’s sideshow and the bearded lady tells him that they need to stay and stick together. 11:00 p.m.

Bette and Dot get handcuffed by a detective who says they’re wanted for murder and that they’re monsters. Jimmy comes to the rescue and calls upon the other “freaks” to help him. The detective calls them freaks and Jimmy slashes his throat. He then un-cuffs the twins. 11:02 p.m.

There are only two people in the audience at the show – a mother (Frances Conroy) and adult son. The son wants to see the “freaks” and he becomes agitated until he finally gets to see them. 11:08 p.m.

The bearded lady opens the show and introduces all the “freaks,” including the Siamese Sisters. And, we finally get to see the performance we’ve all been waiting for … Elsa in a powder blue suit singing David Bowie. 11:10 p.m.

At the end of Elsa’s performance, she becomes upset when she sees only two people in the crowd. The son and daughter then try to buy Bette and Dot for as much as $15,000. The twins and Elsa refuse. The mother then insults Elsa’s singing and leaves. 11:14 p.m.

In the next scene, we see Twisty riding the carousel. Then it cuts to commercial. 11:15 p.m.

The freaks gather to bury the detective that Jimmy killed … Well, actually to chop him up as Twisty watches from a distance. Oh, and you apparently can say “shit” on FX now … 11:21 p.m.

Elsa cries to the bearded lady about her desires for stardom. 11:23 p.m.

Elsa reveals that she has no legs as she detaches two prosthetic legs from beneath her knees and the screen goes black. 11:25 p.m.
