Sapphic Suits by Lana- for your sophisticated lesbian on the go
Lana is able to make her exit to an awaiting cab that will take her anywhere. When Thredson realizes what is happening, he goes outside and sees Lana about to depart in the cab. In what is perhaps the most satisfying scene in a television show in a long time, we see Lana hold the taped confession up to the window of the cab, along with her middle finger, as the cab drives away. Next to the condor and the bald eagle, it was the most majestic bird I’d ever seen.
Thredson arrives at home to find Lana waiting in his living room with a gun pointed at him. He’s relieved that he won’t have to spend time tracking her down. Admittedly, now that he has a full time position at Briarcliff, he has limited time to track down his previous attempted murder and rape victims. Its tough being a career minded man in 1964. Lana has already turned his taped confession over to the police and says they’re on their way. Still, trusting this man to pour himself a drink and walk freely about his living room seem like a bad idea. Thredson is hell bent on pouring himself a drink, though, as a gun is located in the drawer of his bar. Note to self: get secret compartments in my bar in case I’m ever in this situation.
“Should I just shoot him or keep him entertained until the police arrive?”
Thredson admits that he’s relieved that Lana has turned him in, as “living with secrets is not healthy”. Zachary Quinto can easily sell that line in 2013, without any acting involved. Just a few years ago, and that line would have been a much tougher sell.
“Secrets, secrets are no fun…”
Lana wants to hear all the gruesome details of what Thredson did to her lover, Wendy. Thredson is all too happy to comply, with a sadistic smile on his face, as he tells Lana that he kept Wendy alive until Lana escaped and he was forced to dispose of Wendy’s body, piece by piece. He also used Wendy as “practice”- sodomizing her corpse, which allowed him to eventually rape Lana and impregnate her. While Thredson seemed to enjoy the necrophilia, Wendy’s lifeless corpse got as much enjoyment out of the experience as she would have if she were living. Thredson really needs to work on his people skills.
This scene is intercut with flash forwards to Johnny and Chocolate Milk. Johnny finishes suckling one breast and his mouth is covered in milk. Chocolate Milk continues to play into his psychosis and his obvious mommy issues. Johnny isn’t sated by the milk, though, and becomes enraged when Chocolate Milk tries to talk him down. He begins to strangle her as she struggles beneath him.
