‘American Horror Story’ Episode 206: ‘The Origins Of Monstrosity’ Recap

In this week’s episode of American Horror Story: Asylum, “The Origins of Monstrosity,” we get more insight into the backstory of Briarcliff’s deadlier characters.

Last week’s episode was incredibly suspenseful as we saw that Kit just might be telling the truth about being abducted by aliens and we finally learned the identity of “Bloody Face.”

We got a small taste in the opening this week of what is happening at present day Briarcliff. A mysterious voice is heard calling the police to report several “imposters.”

When they arrive they are horrified to find three bodies dressed up as Bloody Face strung up in the grand hall with chains. (Insider’s Note: Later at the end of the episode this week, fans of Bones will be delighted to see Eugene Byrd in a cameo as one of the detectives who arrives on the scene.)

Back in 1964, Sister Jude is forced to turn away a mother who has arrived with her young, possibly homicidal, daughter.

But the girl proves harder to shake then Jude realizes, and Sister Mary Eunice may have found an interesting new protégé.
