AHS: Freak Show "Tupperware Party Massacre" Review: Butt Seriously, Freaks (PHOTO RECAP)

American Horror Story S04E09 "Tupperware Party Massacre"

Imagine being part of the cast of a huge cable drama. Go ahead, I'll wait. Nice, right? Cool gig. Now imagine that in order to be on the show, you had to pack up and move your entire life to the deep South for, like, a long time, and you've really made it your home. You're renting a house, you've made friends, you've found all the best rib joints, you're doing some of the best work of your career. And then you suddenly get word that your character's going to be killed off in the next episode. There's a reason that a certain Walking Dead cast member was borderline sobbing on Talking Dead recently after his or her character was killed off: It wasn't just sadness over the character's death, it was also the huge life change the character's death would represent for the actor. But unlike with most other shows, getting killed off on American Horror Story doesn't necessarily guarantee that an actor has to move back to L.A. just yet. Over the past few weeks, several major characters have been slaughtered in myriad ways, but if any of us has lamented not getting to see Frances Conroy or Kathy Bates or Jyoti Amge again, we underestimated this show's fondness for corpse puppets, disapproving ghosts, and tiny haters. Congratulations to not only those actors for getting to hang around in Louisiana a bit longer, but mostly to us: Death doesn't always mean goodbye!

Between the insane murders and tons of bare #butts, "Tupperware Party Massacre" already had the makings of a great episode, but it was also the most powerful and emotional installment of the season so far. So good. Let's talk about it!

It would make sense that Dandy believes in psychic phenomena, QED he'd probably want to make sure the local psychic is NOT onto him. So here we were in Maggie's tent where she gazed into her crystal ball and did not see these awful things Dandy had done. Which now includes this incident with an Avon lady!

Note to Avon ladies: Do not visit the Mott mansion on crafting day.

This was Frances Conroy's favorite day of work, believe it.

Dandy seemed pretty stoked that Maggie had such nice things to say about his aura or whatever, so he slipped her a Benjamin all creepily. 

Meanwhile outside the tent this was happening:

Jimmy had turned into a feeder! Which basically meant that he was lustily shoveling food into Ida's mouth and slapping her on the hindquarters while two physically unusual people watched with confusion. In other words, Jimmy was drunk.

And you better believe that Drunk Jimmy was NOT happy about seeing Dandy gallivanting around the circus grounds, so he really gave him the what for!

We could tell by the way Dandy sneered into his rear view mirror that Jimmy was cruising for a bruising. But how? Stay tuned.

Then Malcolm Jamal-Warner showed up to flirt with Desiree.

But nevermind that, because this happened right after:

Oh, Jimmy. The best part was that even after he saw that Maggie and Desiree had walked in on his sensual moment with Ida, he just sort of kept humpin' on her. Deal w/ it, world. For her part Maggie did look kinda hurt about it, and Jimmy sorta looked like he regretted it, but that could have just been the wine coolers talking. In related news there was a good chance that Ida was glad she moved here.

Meanwhile remember that whole plotline from earlier in the season when Jimmy was a boy hooker who specialized in giving housewives the shocker? Consider this scene a necessary follow-up!

Apparently Jimmy was too drunk to make magic happen with these ladies, but he was just drunk enough to be hallucinate the image of his disapproving mother.

Now to be fair, the scene between Drunk Jimmy and Hallucinated Kathy Bates was very sad and poignant. But much like the scene in Ghost when Demi Moore kissed Patrick Swayze and it was impossible to forget she was actually kissing Whoopi Goldberg, I couldn't forget that Jimmy was nuzzling a stranger's bosom. Still though, the guy had tons of sadness and regret to work through, in my opinion. Sad stuff.

So obviously, drunkenly nuzzling and calling a stranger "Mama" is a faux pas at Tupperware hooker parties, so Jimmy ran right out of there! But upon leaving, another guest arrived.

Wuh-oh. What was Dandy doing there? Watch out, ladies!

... Which dead character would you like to see more of?

Any of them...surprise me.

... Would you date and/or be best friends with Dandy? Be honest.

If I weren't married, oh hell yes. Don't you know he's a freak in bed.

... Are Gabourey Sidibe and Patti LaBelle hugging in heaven?

Hugging, eating, fun stuff!

... What is Theo Huxtable even UP TO?

I was surprised to see him! He's got a wee crush.

I had hope for more action from Regina's part. Unfortunately, she was plain stupid and ignorant. She should have known better.

Dandy's puppet show was hilarious. He is so creative.

Dot and Bette's scene was beautiful and very moving.

The scene between Dell and Stanley was weird. Suits the show, but really weird. :-)

The Freak Show is really falling apart. Ethel dead. Elsa full of Hollywood. Jimmy in jail. Who will lead them now?

How bad is it that the more deranged Dandy gets the more interesting he is to watch?

Speaking of watching, what a waste of talent throwing Malcolm Jamal Warner in the credits then only giving him 10 seconds of screen time: what gives?

Dandy has been my favorite since episode 01! You can check my related post. Dandy's character is strongly scripted and Wittrock's performance is stellar!

Dandy's character is one of linear progression! His psychological "development" comes naturally. His character although insane makes sense; Dandy doesn't go back and fourth, but his loyal to his belief system! He has all the charms of a narcissistic psychopath! As I said in my very first post on the show (s01e01) Dandy is the trust "freak" and the show - back then he and his mother, as she was alive!

It's the first AHS that I love a character more than Lange's!!!

Oh, please! Don't misunderstand me, I love Jessica! She's an acting chameleon! She's one of my favorite actresses! In every episode her acting is like acting class!

I feel blessed for been able to see her in her Broadway debut (back in 1992) playing Blanche DuBuis in the revival of "A Streetcar Named Desire."

She is the reason I started watching AHS.

It's just that, this season, I find Dandy's character really compelling!

Have to agree with you a bit there, kinda feels like Lange stayed on one season too long and her heart just isn't really in it this season. Then again, maybe I just liked her so much in the first 3 seasons and how well she played the parts that this season just can't compete.

I really do not want to see anymore "ghosts." Didn't they do the same thing in Coven last year--kill characters only to bring them back? The only storyline that has my interest at this point is Dandy's and whoever is directly involved with his actions.

Good photo recap, Price! Thanks.

With La Petite, and how sparingly she was seen, I read it as guilty conscience. With Kathy Bates tho... I'm thinking Edward Mordrake was involved somehow. She was the first he spoke with, after all; maybe she worked out some deal in the afterlife. Like 'Pls let me be a ghost my son and former bf are totes fucked up' and Edward was just like 'Word, girl' like a gothic, ghostly Opera.

Oh great another filler episode, I am so thankful for that... Especially since its the 2nd last episode before mid season break. And then after the break, there is only 3 episodes left! THREE!
AHS is really starting to feel gimmicky, like "which big celeb guest star should visit us this week!" and "guys, Neil patrick harris", and "sister mary eunice"... Jeez how about less of that and more of an actual storyline with focus.
My main problem is that this season has no real focus, its like they wrote this season episode by episode. I mean you can have side stories, but make it relevant. And the characters are sooo gulliible, naive and just plain stupid. Like for example gabbys character with the whole omg YOU killed my mom. I was laughing, like no shit sherlock, how are you that shocked, seriously! Cause up to his confession of the murder, he was such a sane, non suspicious citizen. Yeah....
And "freakshow" more like "freak" this season has mainly focused on jimmy, I love me some evan peters, but come on can we get back to paul, I miss paul! and the others of course!

I agree with you100%. There is no arc, direction, no real cliffhangers. Is all happening, at different times, chaotic in a pointless manner.
I am trying to figure out what's the motivation or inspiration style, behind it all ( beyond the obvious influence Freaks by Todd Browning).
They should have never killed the clown so quickly. And I also agree that using Paul, Amazon, Pepper, and Meryl Streep's daughter more and deepen their stories would have been more cohesive.
Finally I see the closet stuff with the strong man just farcical. Why would he have been with Angela and Kathy. He's in a circus of freaks! I'm sure being gay would be no biggy, next to two headed, three breasted women. And BTW, I am gay. It's just feels too shoehorned.
I feel I watch it cause is camp and nothing else. I cannot feel connection to most of the characters except the twins and Gabriele Sidibe. It's mostly boring, with good visuals and actor. Certainly no proper storyline that grips you and makes you want to come for more.

I enjoyed the beginning of this season, they completely lost me at the middle, and now I'm enjoying it again. These last two episodes have really raised the stakes and I'm glad some of the (8,000) plotlines are making progress.

I think my main problem is Ryan Murphy's penchant for creating side-stories that have no contribution to the overall goal of the show. During Murder House, there was that episode about the Piggy Man, and although the ending of that plot had a decent punchline, it didn't mean anything in the end. Complete filler. Now there's the scenes with the "Reptile Girl", and Ima being introduced just so Jimmy had someone "gross" to stick his weiner in, and Desiree finding out she had weird lady parts just so Dell could break an innocent guy's hands and provide proof that Dell is a monster - proof we already had from plenty of other scenes.

I enjoyed this episode so much because we got to see less whining from Dandy and more "I'm gonna turn dead bodies into puppets!" I'm really glad his true psycho tendencies are coming up, and in a way he's maturing more. Bette and Dot, characters which I didn't care about at all, made progress in this episode. The Stanley/Dell scene genuinely made me feel uncomfortable, even as a gay man, and THAT'S GREAT. Unease is something hard to inspire in viewers today.

So yeah, more development with Dandy, Bette and Dot; less Elsa (we already watched Coven, we've already seen Fiona); and stop introducing characters just so they can be the Corpse of the Week.

When I read some of the comments down here, it seems that people got used to murder, psychopats and weirdness that they see it as boring. When I saw Frances with the second head glued on her shoulder I knew it was going to be a great episode. The act earlier this season between Jessica Lounge and Katy Bates (who got shot) was one of the better scenes I saw on AHS.

“Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." – Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina (1877). So, let’s talk about today’s topic, Families!
A family of monsters
The camp is hodgepodge of misfortunate, miserable families. Grand Mother’s fixation for fame is being exploited; the ghost of a disappointed mother / condemning wife haunts her son and husband; grief and bereavement is still all over the camp; a prominent threat is lurking. Where to begin and were to end in this hot mess? Everything is falling apart under the pressure of betrayal, guilt and deception. Characters, shadow of themselves, are drugging their feet towards their end.
The only ray of sunshine in this dark scenery is the reunion of Bette with Dot. That was a strong, emotional (EMMY winning) dialogue Sarah Paulson had with herself! Yes, it will be a short break of sun shine, but it is an enjoyable one!
The divine family
Dandy and his universe!
Dandy – once again – is a unique case! He’s the creator and the creation altogether. As “God” he’s creating a universe in which he grows and evolves. His selfishness and vanity hold no bounds. His grandiose sense of self-importance; his obsession with being god and with having control over life; his conviction of being above law; all come to reality in this universe of his. A universe consisted of him and a stitched-up string puppet. It’s his totem, - he former symbol of his safety, metamorphosed to the symbol of his lost love. The real Tattler’s are idolized as his escape from the cruel, uncaring world he has been subjected to. Now that his chance of escaping is gone, he reforms the world. This world "according to Dandy" is nothing less than a reflection of his psyche. Bloody, painful and charming!
Dandy - with his preternatural charms - is such a source of inspiration! I could talk for hours about him…

I’m impressed! I’m just impressed by the multilayered characters of this season!

This is the first episode where I actually enjoyed his character. Before this all he did was whine with his mother. I preferred Twisty as the main villain so when they replaced him with Dandy, I had to question it. But this is the episode where I feel they may have turned him around with his god complex and all. And the cop's quick turn of the gun to Sidibe was the confirmation of it.

Not to be a total negative nancy...but I was a little bored during this episode, it could be the endless, where on earth is this series going of it all. I sort of hoped we would have hurried Jimmy back to his sober state a little earlier so he could figure out that Dandy was literally just following him and committing mass murder (I was actually surprised he set him up to be arrested just yet, wouldn't he want to know where Jimmy's heart truly lies, given his earlier behavior, I was signing Ima's death warrant). But I will give the episode the benefit of the doubt in that I had watched the 100 but I was just beginning to process Arrow's mid season finale.

Jimmy is acting ridiculous, Evan and Emma's characters seem to be lacking.

More Angela and her beau. Seriously.

This season especially, I feel like there is a plethora of possible plots for a freak show, and they chose all the worst ones. The first half was okay, but now, what is happening? I'm sure it will all make more sense by the end, but still, the ride is half the fun.

It's an... eccentric performance. But I'm not sure I really care for or about the character.

I don't begrudge AHS doing a non-supernatural season (the Halloween two-parter notwithstanding). But after the first 3 seasons of supernatural killers and phenomena, Dandy by himself is rather so-so.

Bloody Face in Asylum was a "normal" serial killer, but he was surrounded by demonic possession and aliens and Nazi doctors.

Did anyone else saw, when Dandy played with his new two-headed mother doll, that Frances Conroy moved her eyes? it didn't bother me, it was just creepy... XP

I really loved the Dot/Bette-talk and their decision to stay together, but the rest of the episode barely interested me to be honest...

I Thought the figure with the three legs was a hint about Desiree and her 3 breasts and large female parts betreden her legs. Isn't the actress' name near that image? But it could also be hinting at some sort of deformity that the con man has between it's legs. Multiple characters have shown strange reactions when they saw him without his pants. What could be different about his parts?

Dec 12, 2014
It may turn out to be a sort of red herring tease. In both videos, the third leg has a knee joint and is almost as big/long as the other legs.

The thought of Mr. Freakishly Gifted (Stanley) wearing one of Elsa's prosthetic legs "there" just crossed my mind. I hope it never does that again.

I also thought the twins' story was really touching this week, they should have given them more time, better than the Dell storyline. Also, why did they bring back Pepper if she has no role at all so far?

Murder House and Asylum always had an overall story arc. Murder Housrcwas about the Hammons and them being haunted by the former residents both living and dead of a the most haunted house in America. Asylum was always about Kit Walker a guy who may or may not be a serial killer and Lana Winters the reporter determined to find the truth both of whom were locked in an insane asylum. Yes both were a mess but they were messes with a purpose. There hasn't been a purpose to the mess since Asylum.

The thing is we didn't understand what they were really about until the towards the end.

It took episodes for it to click that the people the Hammons encountered were really dead and trapped in the house. It took episodes to realize that Asylum (which started off with some monster murdering a couple on their honeymoon) was about a reporters harrowing ordeal. Before that, those shows were just a series of odd, scary, or just gross events and we were just going along for the ride.

The most unrealistic thing in the episode was that Dandy would decorate a tree all by himself.

I'm pretty sure Mrs. Mott was decorating the tree last week before, y'know, Dandy murdered her.

But who would help him? He's murdered the other two who lived there. Of course, it's surprising that he didn't ask Sidibe to it for him.

So Jimmy doesn't have an alibi for those murders when he's been doing nothing but moping around the camp in front of everyone all week? Dandy must have even more money than he's letting on if he can pay off every cop in Florida and the Judge/Court/probably State officials etc. if he wants Jimmy properly arrested.

Jimmy was at the "party" just before Dandy came so he really does not have an alibi.

Yeah I had a bit of a brain-fart before I wrote that, it was late. I realize now Dandy followed him and entered right after he left. Still think he should have the brains to work something out though.

Well, yeah, but it's going to be by his fellow freaks, and it's unlikely anyone is going to believe them. Or want to believe them.

I think there are too many stories this year, which is a shame because most the characters had great potential. But from one episode to the other , we just jump stories...

i agree, it seems like the writers have gotten so bogged down with juggling the various stories, it's now become easier just to kill the character. It's beginning to feel cheap...don't know what to do with this character anymore? Well, we can just have Dandy kill them...problem solved.

I was so hoping the twins would finally get their operation and disappear off the show. They're so boring! I mean, when you have a character you can completely sideline for entire episodes (Halloween first half, I think, and last week's ep) then you know you're doing something wrong.

Dell and Stanley's "half-cocked" scene... man, that was. Awkward. I wonder what they were going for there? Dell turned on by Stanley? I mean if they'd showed that more, his intense and sudden desire for suicide might've made sense.

Doesn't matter though, really. After two seasons of Denis playing subservient and meek, I am *really* loving him this season, all controlling and just sliiightly demented.

i like AHS, but this season is getting annoying. too much filler every episode.
20 minutes of jimmy crying and 10 minutes of dell failed suicide.

maybe you just don't understand the season? This seasons story line is very complex and it seems that a lot of people have a hard time grasping and understanding it. They took a different approach this season and it is working really well.

there is nothing hard to understand about this season, and it is definitely not complex. there is too many side stories with characters nobody cares about. as a matter of fact, they have so many characters doing nothing, that their only solution is to kill them off, and using " it's a horror show, there is supposed to kill off people" is a lame excuse

And what a pathetic suicide attempt it was! Has he even seen his neck? And hanging from no height whatsoever, autoerotic asphyxiation style?

It would have worked if he wasn't cut down. Juice from Sons of Anarchy was a failed suicide attempt. Dell's was on point.
