American Horror Story: Asylum Finale Recap: Going Out With a Bang

AHSseason2finaleWest Coasters, you’d be crazy not to put off perusing this spoileriffic recap of the American Horror Story: Asylum finale until you’ve seen it. The rest of you, read on… if you dare!

In the finale of American Horror Story: Asylum, Johnny at last meets his maker — that is, his mother, Lana. And, as you’d imagine, it doesn’t go well. How bad is it? Read on for all the gory details:

GOOD TIMES | As Lana gives a Kennedy Center Honors interview in present day, we see in flashbacks how the Maniac author became the well-respected host of the news program America Unmasked. First, she broke into television via the sensationalistic documentary Briarcliff Exposed. (Though it got the nuthouse shut down, she admits that it wasn’t a hunger for justice that drove her, it was ambition.) Then, she cemented her reputation as a bulldog by exposing the Monsignor’s — sorry, the Cardinal’s — complicity in Dr. Arden’s experiments. (She insists that she “can’t take credit for what his guilty conscience made him do” — kill himself! — but it almost seems as if she’d like to!)

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO… | During a detour in Lana’s story, she relates to her interviewer that she had wanted to free Sister Jude as the climax to Briarcliff Exposed. Trouble was, she couldn’t find her. That’s because Kit had already done so. After Alma passed away, he started visiting Jude at Ferncliff and, in 1970, took “Betty Drake” home to live with him and his children. She still had some demons to stare down, but by the time she died, she had known at least a few months of happiness. (The kids even called her Nana. Sniff.) As for Kit… um, the aliens took him away just before he could die of pancreatic cancer.

MOMMIE DEAREST | Before Lana’s interview concludes, she — very calculatedly — drops the bombshell that the son of Bloody Face did not, as Maniac reports, die in childbirth. In fact, she confesses that she once sought out her child, discovering him being bullied on the playground. Then, after everyone’s left, she tells Johnny — who had been posing as a crew member — to come out already. She half-lies that, of course, she recognized her own flesh and blood the moment she saw him. (Mind you, she only recognized him because the police had already warned her that he was on a rampage.) Johnny’s plan is to shoot her in the head the same way she did his father. But Lana lures him into an embrace, disarms him and puts the bullet in his head instead.

Okay, your turn: What did you think of the finale — and the season? Were you surprised by how cold Lana became? Were you satisfied with Sister Jude’s (sorta) happy ending? Can anyone explain the aliens and their fixation on Kit? Sound off below!
