Still, the jukebox in combination with a severely high dose of electroshock therapy provides this week’s odd musical number, set to “the Name Game”. Lana notices that Sister Jude is incoherent to the point where she doesn’t know who she is or where she is- until she puts this little ditty on the jukebox and suddenly we’re all in the cafeteria of McKinley High listening to Jessica Lange sing “Lana, Lana, bo bana….” Between Judy, Lana, Pepper and Kit all of their names were reasonably easy to rhyme. I was secretly hoping there would a patient named Chuck during the course of the musical number, though.
The lack of hip hop on this jukebox is atrocious. How am I supposed to get crunk?
Once the singing and dance were over, we see that Sister Jude’s behavior really has been altered by the electroshock therapy. Monsignor Timothy meets up with her in the kitchen and apologizes for not believing her and for allowing all of the horrible things to transpire over the course of this season. Seriously, they really need to invest in a better H.R. department. Sister Jude seems to tacitly acknowledge that while she is drugged she still has the wherewithal to tell the Monsignor to kill Sister Mary Eunice.
Sister Jude also has the ability to admit to a fellow nun that she imprisoned Lana as a patient and Lana should be set free. Sure, everyone loves the “plucky” lesbian news reporter when they need her to gain her freedom and write an expose on atrocities at Briarcliff, or when they need her to breastfeed their serial killer offspring. Poor Lana can’t catch a break.
Dr Thredson, knowing that Kit still has that taped confessed where he admits to being Bloody Face, plans on bribing Kit for the location of tape. Thredson takes Kit to see Grace and his now infant child and threatens to harm them if Kit doesn’t tell him where the tape is located. Kit apparently has an odd attachment to this crazy woman he only slept with once, and a child that may or may not be his. Kit should have at least asked for a DNA test. Grace gets knocked up after they slept together once, goes missing, is found dead and then returns a few weeks later with a child? That doesn’t seem at all weird to Kit? He doesn’t have any questions? I guess if you’re willing to believe your wife was abducted by aliens, though, you’re also willing to believe that aliens will use your asylum girlfriend as a baby incubator. Still, there are issues with this timeline, at best.
BFF’s should be honest with each other when they have doubts about paternity
Lana manages to find the tape that Kit hid of Dr Thredson’s confession and replace it with a book. She informs Dr Thredson that only she knows where the taped confession is and she will send it to the authorities if Dr Thredson harms her, or Kit, or anyone else. This is where I have an idea, though. If Lana is so confident in her “plucky” abilities, why doesn’t she just send a letter to the authorities documenting all of the horrible things that go on at Briarcliff already?
