Storyline

The angel of death descends upon Briarcliff Manor. Grace is found bleeding to death after her operation but is brought back from the abyss just as she was to receive the kiss of death. When Sister Mary Eunice accuses Dr. Arden of butchering the operation, he doesn't know what she talking about. Lana manages to escape from Bloody Face but gets a ride from someone who definitely has a thing about women. She soon finds herself back in the asylum. Sister Jude visits Mr. Goodman with Arden's fingerprints and finds him on the bathroom floor bleeding to death. He has barely enough life left in him to identify his attacker. Sister Jude learns something about the incident that shaped her life. Kit escapes and returns to the asylum to rescue Grace who is finally set free. Written by garykmcd

American Horror Story: Asylum Dark Cousin
28 November 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The nurses come in to check on Grace. She then reaches over to the angel of death (Frances Conroy) only to be saved by the nurses who saved her. Sister Mary comes in telling Arthur he should be worried about his operation he performed on Grace. When Mary goes into Arthur making clear she is the one in charge of him. Another patient in Briacliff try's to cut off his hand. A name is written on the wall and Mary knows it well that a spirit may have been summonsed she does not like. Miles is visited once again bu the angel this time killing him. Watching this is Sister Mary with the devil spirit inside her. The real Mary seems to be fighting through this dark cousin but still is not powerful enough to win. Back to Oliver's layer where Lana is visited by the angel of death with him on top of her. The position Oliver put Kit in is not a good one as he may get the electric chair. Lana is visited again by the angel of death wanting death from her. Oliver is giving Lana a way to die because he has problems keeping her alive. Lana is finally able to fight back against Oliver but even when he wakes up quickly she runs away with a man in a car coming to save her. The man in the car does not seem nice to women as he blames her for the problems she had with Oliver. The driver of the car shoot himself and Lana gets in an accident only waking up back in the asylum with Mary looking over her. Jude starts to lose it when she finds the man dead having to call for help. In another flashback we see Jude being accused of being a drunk at the singing club. Also when Jude drinks she remembers things and when she drinks too much she loses it. We are also shown how Jude got into being a nun which was from a freak drunken journey. Jude gets a call from Mary about how she can get rid of herself even though Jude is not listening to anything she has to say. Jude goes out and cuts herself or at least she was thinking about it. She like everyone else is visited by the dark angel. Jude goes to visit the little girl's house, she talks to their parents but then that little girl comes in grown up and alive. Lana wants to talk to Jude but has to tell Mary that Oliver is bloody face. Mary believes her but like the possessed one before loves his work and does nothing. Kit returns to Briacliff with one of those monsters Arden created behind him. The guard shoots Grace and the angel of death takes her away. Rocky start but the episode did get better and once again Lily Rabe is starting to pass Jessica Lange.

EPISODE GRADE: B (MVP: Lily Rabe)
