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!
This week on 'American Horror Story: Asylum,' a character says what we're all thinking, Anne Frank's story comes to a conclusion, and we discover the identity of Bloody Face!
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!
If there was any doubt that 'American Horror Story: Asylum' couldn't get more bonkers or that creator Ryan Murphy had any boundaries left to cross, you haven't seen tonight's episode, titled "I Am Anne Frank." And yes, that's the Anne Frank.
As viewers of 'American Horror Story: Asylum' well know, mental institutions can be frightening enough without aliens and mutants lurking about, deranged Nazi doctors and bloody-faced killers appearing at every corner. Chloe Sevigny's Shelley the nymphomaniac certainly found this out the hard way in last night's Halloween thriller "Nor'easter," as the good Dr. Arden made sure she wouldn't escape his clutches again, so what does the actress say is next? And will we see any deceased characters again?
Well this week's episode of 'American Horror Story: Asylum' suffers from unfortunate timing, doesn't it? "Nor'easter" features -- what else -- a big storm that's bringing out the crazy in those who should be trusted to be sane.
For as increasingly batsh*t insane as 'American Horror Story: Asylum' has become in only two episodes, we're deathly afraid to think what kind of new horrors await us toward the end of the season. Yet even with that fear in place, we're dying to see more of Dylan McDermott, whose appearance in the FX horror thriller's second season was saved to be revealed only one week ago for the show's premiere. So when will McDermott appear on 'American Horror Story: Asylum,' and what kind of new role might he have?
'American Horror Story: Asylum' has more tricks to offer than treats -- and more drama than horror -- in this week's episode, which gives us a little more information about some of our more prominent players -- specifically Sister Jude and Dr. Arden.
"Welcome to Briarcliff," the season two premiere of 'American Horror Story: Asylum' is a gloriously over-the-top hour of television, but does it improve on the soapyness of season one? You bet.
