‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Spoilers: New Character Comes To Town

American Horror Story: Freak Show did not air a new episode Thanksgiving week and, while many fans were likely disappointed by the shows absence, the next new episode of the show will bring some exciting surprises.

After Twisty the Clown’s murderous rampage ended, rich boy Dandy took over for the killer clown. With “Blood Bath” being the title of the next episode, it suggests that perhaps more murders are about to happen. On the most recent episode of American Horror Story, it was Ma Petite who met her demise, but she wasn’t killed at the hands of Dandy or even Maggie (who had initially planned on drowning Ma Petite, but couldn’t go through with it at the last minute.) Rather, it was Del, the Strong Man, who ended her life. Will “Blood Bath” deliver on its name and kill off more beloved characters?

While it is not yet known what will happen, International Business Times reports that a new character will be coming to the freak show this week. With the season nearly halfway through, it seems odd to introduce a new character, but if fans have learned one thing about American Horror Story, it is that the show is definitely unpredictable. Little is known about the new character, but what is known is that her name will be Ima and that she is played by actress Chrissy Metz. The actress has appeared on a handful of television shows, but American Horror Story will introduce her to an all-new audience.

Finn Wittrock recently spoke to Yahoo! TV and revealed that “Blood Bath” was one of his favorite episodes of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

In Episode 8, there’s some really cool stuff I get to do with mom, with Frances [Conroy]. It is also where Gabourey Sidibe enters our world. There’s a big, big twist in that one that I get to be a part of.

Gabourey Sidibe plays the daughter of Dora, the maid murdered by Dandy. With Gabourey showing up, likely looking for her mother, it will be interesting to see how Dandy and his mother, Gloria, handle the situation.

The week following the premiere of “Blood Bath,” an episode titled “The Fat Lady Sings” will air. This episode is also set to offer some surprises. It appears that Jimmy will be deeply troubled by a death and some fans have speculated that his mother, Ethel, may succumb to her illness.

American Horror Story: Freak Show has a lot of people talking and, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, a script may have been stolen. In fact, there are rumors that suggest a major storyline may be leaked.
