    American Horror Story's Season 2 Finale: The Lana Winters Story

    Everyone got a happy ending, except for the sooooper-evil people. Even the alien babies story ultimately worked out for the best!

    • A huge disappointment

      The most disappointing show of the last fall. After a really good first season the second one is a complete rubbish. I wasted 13 evenings on watching this. I don't understand why it has not been canceled since it is not worth having another chance.
    • Madness Ends

      Madness Ends what's a perfect and very entertaining episode of American Horror Story. I really enjoyed watching because there is a lot of plot progression character development action and intrigue. It was awesome watching the various timelines coincide. I liked watching how Lana's life unfolded and the various things she did. I like tell everything played out and I certainly look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!
    • Confusing but great!

      So I guess the conclusion is a bit confusing but I think I get it...

      When Lana walked out that door at the end shows that she was never ever a prisoner of Briarcliff and the whole story was her creation except the Bloody Face scenes in the present...

      It was the perfect ending of the best tv series I saw in the last two years. Thank you Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk!moreless
    • "It's not your fault, baby"....... "It's mine,"

      Amazing season ending to an amazing show.

      At first I couldn't get my head around it, the storyline changes every season, surely that's not right?

      But it's finales like this that make it a perfect idea. This season has been full of up's and down's and this was the perfect ending, it wrapped up the characters in a way that made it complete and fulfilling for viewers. It also left me wanting more... season 3 has big shoes to fill and I can't wait to see what they are filled with.moreless

      • Lana: You need something people, can see, visual simulation, and believe me, there is nothing more simulating than crazy people.

      • Lana: That man was a particular kind of liar, the kind who lies to himself about being a liar. He was so corrupt and deluded, he believed his own lies. Lies are like scars on your soul. They destroy you.

      • Sister Jude: But I do hope you know what you're in for. The loneliness, the heartbreak, the sacrifice you'll face as a woman with a dream on her own.
        Lana: You don't have any idea what 'm capable of.
        Sister Jude: Well, then. Look at you. Miss Lana Banana. Just remember. If you look in the face of evil, evil's going to look right back at you.
