American Horror Story: Freak Show After Show Episode 2 “Massacres and Matinees”
Welcome to the American Horror Story: Freak Show Season 4 Episode 2 “Massacres and Matinees”! The police arrive at the freak show to investigate the detective’s disappearance, and to inform Elsa that a curfew is now in place in Jupiter following the string of murders around the county. Meanwhile, the carnival strong man Dell Toledo (Michael Chiklis), Jimmy’s father, and his three-breasted hermaphrodite wife Desiree (Angela Bassett) arrive to ask Elsa for a job. Elsa, initially reluctant, makes Dell head of security, but soon realizes what a mistake it was after Dell schedules a matinee against Elsa’s orders, attacks Jimmy much to Ethel’s dismay, and frames Meep for the murder of the detective after Jimmy had tried to frame Dell. Meep is arrested by the police, and eventually murdered by inmates in jail. His body is then returned to the freak show site where the fellow freaks gather round and mourn. Elsewhere, Dandy asks Jimmy if he can join the freak show, as he dreams of being on stage, but after Dandy accidentally insults Jimmy, he is rebuffed and sent away. After falling into a fit of rage, Dandy returns home to find that his mother, Gloria, has hired Twisty the Clown to cheer him up. However, Twisty storms off after Dandy tries to look inside his clown bag. Dandy follows Twisty back to his trailer where the two children Twisty is holding hostage attempt an escape, but are recaptured by Twisty and Dandy.

theStream.tv Fan Show Network presents the American Horror Story Freak Show After Show. Tune in each week, live or on demand, for review and conversation about American Horror Story. American Horror Story: Freak Show is the fourth season of the FX horror anthology television series American Horror Story. Previous seasons of American Horror Story: American Horror Story: Murder House, American Horror Story: Asylum, and American Horror Story: Coven have all featured the same actors including the Emmy Award Winner Jessica Lange, who has won Emmy’s for her outstanding performance each season on AHS. This season is set in 1952 Jupiter, Florida, telling the story of one of the last remaining freak shows in America, and their struggle for survival. The series was created and produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, but before AHS, Ryan Murphy made headlines through the hit FOX high school musical dramedy, Glee, and FX’s Nip/Tuck. Co-Creator and fellow producer, Brad Falchuk has worked with Murphy for years including on Glee & Nip/Tuck. American Horror Story is described as an anthology series, each season is conceived as a self-contained miniseries, following a desperate set of characters and settings, and a storyline with its own “beginning, middle, and end.” Returning cast members from previous seasons are: Jessica Lange (Tootsie) as Elsa Mars, Evan Peters (X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Jimmy Darling, Denis O’Hare (Milk) as Stanley, Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) as Gloria Mott, Sarah Paulson as Bette / Dot Tattler (Mud), Naomi Grossman (#Rip) as Pepper, Kathy Bates (Misery) as Ethel Darling, Emma Roberts (Scream 4) as Maggie Esmeralda, Angela Bassett (Malcolm X) as Desiree Dupree, and Michael Chiklis (The Shield) as Dell Toledo.
