Ryan said that Bette and Dot might be responsible for dark things. Yes. Bette and Dot might be responsible for some dark things. When they’re discovered, Elsa in a way, even though it may not appear to be that in the beginning kind of saves them from what may befall them because of their dark deeds. Elsa at least in the beginning seems to be offering them an alternative to what would have happened if they were left where they were found.

Are their personalities different? It’s not as simple as nice and evil. It’s more complicated in true Ryan Murphy style. One has more darkness in her but not darkness of evil—darkness of depression, of knowing what’s out in the world. The other one is more of an innocent. It’s innocent and more cynical. Even though they share a body, they have different brains and different hearts. They experience everything differently from each one another.

E: How about the current vibe and sense of camaraderie among the cast?
Naomi Grossman: It’s great! Even better than “Asylum.” Because with “Asylum,” we’d work, then just go home, back to our normal lives. Whereas here, we’re stuck with each other! We’re each other’s co-workers and social life. Fortunately, everyone’s really supportive and awesome. The other day, I visited one of the “freaks” who happened to be in the hospital. This is her first time doing something theatrical— before this, she’d only done documentaries about her condition. I opened the hospital door, and there stood Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson. I thought, how cool, to have that range of people in a room: from Emmy winners, to nominees, to people like me, to people who were working at the Grease Monkey before this. So yeah, the camaraderie’s pretty awesome. [x]

In the three previous seasons of American Horror Story, Sarah Paulson has played a medium, a reporter targeted by a serial killer, and a witch blinded by acid. Clearly, Paulson loves a challenge…which brings us to this year’s Freak Show. Playing conjoined twins Bette and Dot, who are discovered by…

No. TV shows and movies film things out of sequence all the time because of time/money restraints. So they’ll film all of the scenes that take place in one location first, then in another location, and so on. According to Michael Goi they’ve been shooting scenes from the first five or six episodes all this time, and just yesterday they filmed the final scene they needed for the first episode. They’ve been working on the other episodes simultaneously, just out of order.

And they don’t finish filming the entire season by the time it premieres. According to the cast on the red carpet, they usually have about half of the season fully done by the time the premiere comes around. They continue filming all the way through December while the season is airing to get the final episodes done. I think I remember hearing Sarah say that the final scene between Cordelia and Fiona was filmed right after Christmas break.

Top 5 things you want to see happen in AHS: Freak Show?

pepperforpresident replied:
  1. I feel like it’s too obvious for Twisty to have some sort of facial deformity that he’s hiding, so I hope it’s something really shocking. Currently hoping he’s got some sort of animal face sewed on underneath that mask.
  2. I want Pepper to be amazing, but that’s definitely going to happen.
  3. I want lots of focus on Denis and Emma, because their relationship in Coven was a real highlight and I’m hoping the same happens this year.
  4. After last night, I really want Elsa to have a penis.
  5. I want Jimmy to not have a singular love affair. I’d be okay if he was some sort of player that just slept around with everyone, but I don’t want another star-crossed lovers scenario.





I wonder how much focus we will actually get on Denis and Emma, I haven’t heard anything about her filming in NOLA yet.

Good points all around though, especially with Twisty. I feel like his real face is going to be something really shocking like an alien face or Lily Rabe or Taissa Farmiga making a shocking cameo as part of his face.

Emma’s there now, but she wasn’t in the beginning. Neither was Denis, apparently, since his first appearance is in the third episode. I hope they’ll end up like Myrtle, who we didn’t see much of initially but later came up in every episode after that.

I would die if it was secretly Lily! That would be so amazing.

Okay, thank you for telling me that! I knew Denis got there eventually because he tweeted about it, but I heard nothing about Emma. I don’t know about Emma, but Denis will definitely have a Myrtle-sized part since he said he would be in 10 out of 13 like Fran said Myrtle was when the Coven hype began. I’ve heard rumors about Emma being in as little as 4 episodes, but we’ll have to see.

And yeah, if Lily HAS to come back, I’d like it to be in a creative way like that. Finally have her be the monster Misty probably would have been before all the Coven rewrites and such.

I think those four-episode rumors came from IMDb, when they credited all of the Freak Show actors in episodes 1, 2, 12, and 13. I don’t know why they did that, but people somehow thought that was legit information and freaked out that everyone was appearing in just the first two and last two episodes. *sigh*
