Once Lana forces Bloodyface's confession which was being recorded by Kit, Kit takes the recording to the hydro-bath room in order to hide it. Once in there, Kit looks around for something to wrap around it, finding a towel on the left bath (as there was none on the bath on the right). Kit takes the towel and wraps the recording and places it under the bath on the right. When Kit walks out with Dr Arden, a towel can be seen hanging on the rail of the bath on the right, which was previously empty. See more »

American Horror Story: Asylum The Coat Hanger
12 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

A therapist meets with a new client who seems strange especially for her. After listening to some things he says she thinks she cannot happen. She thinks he should turn himself in but he wants to be a doctor. It is then revealed that this strange man is the son of bloody face (Dr. Thredson). Back in the Asylum Lana sees Mary at her highest power. We then learn that Lana is pregnant and has been for some time. Mary tells her it is fine that she gives birth in the asylum. Jude wakes up strapped to a bed with the Monsignor walking over her. Everyone lied about the murder and that it was Jude who went crazy and murdered everyone. Jude now joins the inmates of Briacliff like the people she once watched over. Monsignor and Mary talk in Jude's old office and she wants to make him the pope like he wanted to be. The old nuns try to keep Jude calm happy that they are in charge of her. Jude is then apologized to and we get a flashback to Jude with Jude and Lee. Then back to normal time where she accepts his apology. Lana now wants to kill Oliver but Kit thinks he should be kept alive so he can get free from the murder. Lana tells Oliver she is having his baby then pulling out the wire hanger she would use to have an abortion. He then says he will be honest so she gets him to tell her the truth about picking the murdered women. Lana gets the confession from Oliver also telling him that she had the miscarriage. When Kit goes to hide the tape Dr. Arden comes out of no where leading the two to share a drink and smoke in his office. The Monsignor finds Lee in the church so he gives him a christening but he ends up killing him the water. Lana is left alone in her room she she decides to finally get rid of Oliver using her wires but somehow Oliver was set free. She goes looking for him but finds out Mary let Oliver go also she knows the baby is sill alive and a boy. The therapist is killed by blood face's son. Jude walks into the hall and when everyone stares at her she walks over to Lana for a light. Jude agrees to help to help Lana get out but also making some of her own changes to the establishment. Kit puts his trust into Dr. Arden to bring him back to life. We then find out that Grace is pregnant with an alien baby and Pepper knows all about it. Also The dark angel took the Monsignor with her to death. Great episode and all of these actors are stunning.
