Warning: This is blog is spoiler-ish, but not enough to spoil your freaky fun.
Get ready freaktards because we are about to be thrilled & scared shitless again for another 90 minute episode tonight titled “Matinees and Massacres.” There are still many more freaks that we have to meet, and tonight we will be introduced to Dell Toledo (Michael Chiklis) & Desire Dupree (Angela Bassett), his gorgeous three breasted bride with something extra going on DOWN THERE. Dell must be a real freak between the sheets because he used to get it on with the bearded lady, his ex-wife, and now he’s into chicks with dicks. #Greedy
Dell & Desire are on the run and intend to make The Freak Show their new home. Expect clashes between Dell & his baby momma Ethel, as well as Elsa when she learns of his plans to start showing matinees. Things take a turn for the worse when Dell discovers his son Jimmy Darling at the diner. Last week Jimmy patronized the local diner for meatloaf and pussy with his gloved hands, but tonight he flirts with the waitress bare handed. Let’s just say that the waitress is grossed out by his hands & doesn’t care about his finger banging skills. #StrictlyDickly
Last year’s Coven co-starred Patti LuPone. This year we are fortunate to have another Patti as in LaBelle for 4 episodes. YASSS freaktards the “Lady Marmalade” Grammy winning legend herself is going to gitcha gitcha ya ya da da with us all. Sorry she won’t be singing, but she is the maid at Dandy & Gloria Mott’s mansion and she begins to unravel Twisty’s secrets. She is also the mother of Gabourey Sidibe’s character that we won’t see until later in the season. The Mott mansion is over the top fancy, but after watching the promo I can sorta recognize what looks like last year’s Coven mansion all dressed up.
I will warn you that like last year’s incestuous mother/son storyline Murphy will show us another unhealthy mother/son relationship between Dandy & Gloria. After a weirdly dark conversation with his mother Dandy runs away from home with dreams of joining the Freak Show. While Gloria searches for her son, she finds Twisty the Clown literally on the side of the road and brings his ass home to cheer Dandy up and be his new companion. The association between a homicidal maniac and a rich spoiled kid with some inner freak in him is a recipe for nothing good. You guys are gonna FREAK out as the season progresses with these two as #BosomBuddies
So far we have seen Elsa’s love & affection for her freaks, and we learned of her motives to creep into their spotlight. Tonight she becomes dangerously jealous at the talent exhibited by one of her freaks. Nobody steals the spotlight away from Elsa Mars. Oh this reminds me that I have to clarify something in my recap for Episode-1. I was wrong when I described Elsa’s look for her performance of “Life on Mars” as Marlene Dietrich inspired with too much old lady crazy blue shadow. Instead her look was copied directly from David Bowie’s video for the song which I have never seen. I’m obsessed with that video now and watch it at least once a day.
What is scarier Twisty’s clown mask or what’s underneath it? Well Ryan Murphy has been teasing fans by warning us that tonight we will see what is under Twisty’s mask, and it ain’t purrrty. #Nip/Tuck. Episode-2 airs tonight on FX at 10 ET. I will have a recap ready by Friday since I have 50% more freaky shit to write about for another 90 minute episode.
On a personal note I’m beyond thrilled that actress Naomi Grossman who plays Pepper tweeted me after she read my recap last week. Plus I had a mini panic attack when I realized I was one degree away from Jessica Lange and regretted that I kinda sorta dissed Lange’s accent. LUV YA JESSICA #BowDownBitches. I hope all of you will stalk me on twitter too @Urethra_F
