    American Horror Story: Asylum "The Origins of Monstrosity" Review: Holla Backstory (PHOTO RECAP)

    An hourlong breather of an episode, this week was more about explaining motives than moving the story forward.

      to Lily Rabe, Jessica Lange, Sarah, Paulson and Zach Quinto.

      Adored the Devil and psycho girl bonding scene.

      Unlike season 1, I've felt that season 2 has taken longer to piece together. Only now, within this episode, do I feel like we're starting to really, truly understand the characters and decide how we feel about them. The gears are turning and the machine feels fully in motion now. This is definitely my favorite episode so far. Pure genius, this one was.

      The Origins of Monstrosity was a spectacular and very entertaining episode of American Horror Story: Asylum. I really enjoyed watching because there was a lot of character development and plot progression. It was interesting to learn more about Thresden and his motives. I also enjoyed seeing how Sister Jude was still interested in learning the truth though it got her colleague killed. Sister Mary Eunice was excellent and deviant. The little girl who was troubled was interesting and it was crazy to see what she did. There were definitely some horrific scenes. I look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!moreless
