Storyline

It's Christmas-time at Briarcliff Manor and with Sister Mary Eunice in charge, it's going to be a special holiday with a specially decorated tree. She entices Leigh Emerson, who killed 18 people from 5 families at Christmas two years ago, out of his solitary cell to attend. He had caused quite a commotion at Briarcliff the previous Christmas and she intends that he do the same this year. Lana realizes that Kit is also in the asylum and concludes that her own case has never been reported to the police. She tells Kit about Dr. Thredson. Sister Jude desperately wants to get back into the asylum and gets help from a totally unexpected source. Things don't quite go as planned. Dr. Alden has a close encounter while trying to dispose of Grace's body. Written by garykmcd
