We flash back to Lana still holding a gun on Thredson, who says he no longer has use for Lana now that she is free and will surely abort their baby. Lana assures him she has no plans to keep their child and that she will get great satisfaction in seeing Thredson strapped to an electric chair. Thredson assures her that he is most definitely insane and will spend the rest of his life in prison. Lana shoots him unceremoniously, stating that “prison is too good for you”. I get the admit relief of seeing this bastard killed, but I’d rather him see him subjected to years of rape and abuse in prison. He got off far too easy if you ask me. On the other hand, no one is ever truly gone in the world of AHS, so we may have not seen the last of Thredson yet.
Lana and her two friends visit Wendy’s grave, where Lana expresses serious remorse for pursuing the Briarcliff story to the point where it lead to Wendy’s death. Her friends are more interested in Lana’s future plans, though, as she is all alone in that big house and one of the friends offers to be her roommate. I’m not sure Emily Post has much to say about funeral or memorial decorum, but all real estate talk should probably wait until you’re not standing directly in front of someone’s final resting place. Even a hectic real estate market like the Northeast can take a break to mourn. Lana announces that she is moving to New York anyway, so this conversation is moot.
“My bodies not even cold yet, bitches!”
Journalists interrupt the mourning/real estate inquiry as they’ve been following Lana since the news of scandal at Briarcliff and the subsequent murder of Dr. Thredson broke. Friend #2 says the journalists are like hawks and Lana admits that journalists are nothing but blood thirsty predators after the next bleeding corpse. You spend a few months in Briarcliff and walk away with a baby and a new perspective on life. That’s like the best gift with purchase ever.
Lana advises her friends to leave through the back, as it’s now well known that Lana is a lesbian and doesn’t want to associate her friends with her Sapphic ways. Friend #1 agrees, as her family doesn’t suspect that she is a lesbian. Judging by her clothes, though, I’m guessing they’ve entertained the idea at least once or twice. Lana leaves out of the front is swarmed with questions about recent events, responding with an icy “all I can say is read my book”. No one is getting the milk for free, buy the cow, you bloody thirsty bastards.
This is the most gruesome episode of “Reading Rainbow” ever
Back at Briarcliff, Sister Jude seems somewhat recovered from her catatonia and has the means to realize she is being drugged by the Sisters. Monsignor Timothy is reading up on the “Horror of Briarcliff” in the newspaper and his hiring of Dr Thredson and all of the horrible events that have transpired since he was charged with the ward. The Monsignor confronts Jude in the common room and she admits that while Sister Mary Eunice may have been possessed by the devil, she was right in that the jukebox has some healing effects on the patients. Jude chides the Monsignor about his poor decision making and for giving up his chastity to the devil, of all people. Jude may have had lust in her heart but she won’t just bang any Tom, Dick or Prince of Darkness. It’s nice to see someone still has standards up in this bitch.
