While 'American Horror Story: Asylum' has a number of mysteries coursing across the show's second season, one major question ended up spoiled early thanks to the unmistakable voice of the modern "Bloody Face," as heard in "The Origins of Monstrosity." Now, series creator Ryan Murphy has in fact confirmed the identity of the modern killer as played by a famous 'American Horror Story' season 1 star, and we've got the photo to prove it!
American Horror Story: Asylum
While 'American Horror Story: Asylum' captured a great deal of attention casting former season 1 star Dylan McDermott in a mysterious new role, fellow murder house star Frances Conroy had earlier been announced for something far more mysterious. McDermott has (technically) already made an appearance, but this Wednesday's "Dark Cousin" will see the introduction of Conroy's "Ultimate Angel." Is she really who she claims to be, or is Ryan Murphy pulling a fast one on us?
For those who weren't too scared of their impending thanksgivings to add to their fear by flipping on the latest 'American Horror Story: Asylum,' Wednesday's all-new episode "The Origins of Monstrosity" delivered another surprising twist. We'd already learned the idenity of the 1964 Bloody Face, but a few more present clues confirmed that the figures tormenting 2012 lovers Leo (Adam Levine) and Teresa (Jenna Dewan) were indeed impostors!
Or were they? The real Bloody Face seems alive and well in the present day, but not voiced by who we'd expect, so what former 'American Horror Story' star seems to be on the other end of the line?
The murder house may have closed down, and the Asylum will eventually close its doors, but 'American Horror Story' isn't going anywhere just yet. Following the incredible ratings of last night's "I Am Anne Franke, Part 2," FX has officially ordered a third season of the horror anthology, once again to be anchored by series star Jessica Lange. The next "book" of 'American Horror Story' will begin in 2013, but what will its focus be? And what other cast members might return?
For those of you keeping up with the series, 'American Horror Story: Asylum' dropped a massive, and bloody reveal on the audience with last night's "I Am Anne Frank, Pt. 2," exposing the true identity of seriak killer "Bloody Face!" Of course, neither the mystery nor the horror end there, as plenty of questions have yet to be answered across the season. That in mind, where might the Ryan Murphy horror-thriller series go next? Will we delve deeper into Bloody Face? What about the aliens? Yes, the aliens!
Like “Rubber Man” before him, “Bloody Face” has captured the frightful imaginations of ‘American Horror Story: Asylum' viewers, who after only four episodes obsess over clues to the masked serial killer’s identity. We’ve certainly been jerked around a bit as to the killer’s true visage, even across multiple timelines, but is the mask about to be lifted? According to series creator Ryan Murphy, we won’t have long to wait to find out!
