“American Horror Story” will return to FX tonight with episode 5, “Pink Cupcakes.” But don’t let that misleading title fool you. According to the Season 4 synopsis of the upcoming “Freak Show” installment, episode 5 will be anything but sweet.
In fact, the only thing tasty about episode 5 will be the introduction of a new character, Andy, played by “The Normal Heart” actor Matt Bomer. Little is known about Bomer’s mysterious role but thanks to the release of 12 promo photos for “Pink Cupcakes” we know the mysterious Andy will be in some sort of cahoots with the “Freak Show” villain, Dandy (Finn Wittrock).
And that’s not all the revealing images tease. Jimmy (Evan Peters) and Maggie (Emma Roberts) shippers will be pleased to see the seemingly perfect couple growing even closer in “Pink Cupcakes.” Only problem is, will Maggie reveal her true intentions to her potential beau in episode 5?
The summary explains that Maggie and her corrupt partner, Stanley (Denis O’Hare), who will introduce himself to Elsa (Jessica Lange) in episode 5, will continue their menacing plot to profit from the freaks – by killing the performers and cashing in their disfigured body parts. But will Maggie be able to continue with the evil plan? After bonding with Jimmy in episode 4 (thanks to a murderous/kidnapping clown) it seems that she may have some problems pulling the trigger.
Check out the episode 5 photos and see what theories you can cook up for tonight’s installment of “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” which is set to air at 10 p.m. EST.
