Warning: The following contains spoilers about the most recent episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show.
At the end of the latest episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show, Dandy (Finn Wittrock) was seen bathing in a tub of his mother’s own blood after he put a bullet in her head. And Wittrock said the killing won’t end there.
While promoting his new film, Unbroken, Wittrock told E! Online that Dandy will kill more people in the next episode.
“I’ll just tell you that the next one, I think his body count might double. The next one really, honestly takes the cake. Even I’m scared.”
Wittrock admitted that he didn’t expect Dandy to kill his own mother (Frances Conroy).
“I guess I was surprised, but I knew one of us had to go. But when it was over, I was like, ‘Oh, boy! There’s no turning back now, if there ever was.’”
Wittrock also revealed that filming the scene was a bit difficult.
“We didn’t realize it was goodbye until it was over. That scene starts in one place and goes to a very different place, so there’s [sic] a lot of emotions for both us there. We were both sort of in the midst of it, and she’s a very meticulous actor, she’s very detail oriented… She’s so brilliant. You sort of just find it together.”
The latest American Horror Story episode also brought in a new character, the Fat Lady. Chrissy Metz made her debut in the series as Barbara, also known as Ima Wiggles.
Metz, a plus-size actress in real life, told Yahoo! TV that roles for people like her are tough to come by.
“Being a plus-size actress, it is slim pickings, so anytime any role comes up for a plus-size actress, my agents are all over it, and they were like, ‘You have to book this job. It’s ‘American Horror Story.’ It’s a big deal.’ No pressure, right?”
Metz said she loves watching American Horror Story, but she can never be alone when it’s on.
“I always have people over to watch it with me. I am scared out of my mind during every episode, because it is never so far-fetched that it couldn’t happen.”
Metz also revealed that her American Horror Story character will fall in love with one of the show’s other characters.
“Ima is a big ol’ adorable innocent girl who just wants to belong and be around people who treat her like she’s normal. She develops a really heavy crush on someone. There are some cute boys on the show. Which one will it be?”
It certainly won’t be Dandy. Metz is predicting that Wittrock’s character will meet his maker soon.
“I freaking love Finn so much. In real life, he’s sweet and kind and funny, but the character he has created with Dandy is just not right.”
In a related report from the Inquisitr, with American Horror Story: Freak Show coming to an end, many fans are speculating what the next season will be about. One Reddit user predicts that it will possibly be a new spin on Operation Top Hat, since there have been many images of top hats appearing throughout Freak Show.
