Welcome back! I thought the show would be on break this week since they aired their Christmas last week, which just goes to show what a fool I am for trying to impose logic on a Ryan Murphy joint.

This week’s AHS opens in the present day, in the office of a psychiatrist played by the lovely and woefully undercast Brooke Smith. And if ever, oh ever, you could give away a character’s fate merely by your casting choice, this is it. They second I saw her, attempting to treat a scruffy Dylan McDermott, I knew that this poor head shrinker was doomed.

“You really just need me for the day? Because I’m free all week if you need me as a mutant or a space alien or…no?”

She starts to get that feeling herself about fifteen seconds into the intake appointment, »
