Correction: The title for episode 9 of "American Horror Story: Freak Show" is "Tupperware Party Massacre."
Ready for more chilling drama on “American Horror Story: Freak Show”? You’re not going to want to miss episode 9, “Tupperware Party Massacre."
According to the synopsis for the upcoming episode of Season 4, Jimmy (Evan Peters) will sink into “drunken despair” after a “tragic loss” rocks the camp. Viewers will remember from episode 8 that the “tragic loss” is referring to the untimely death of Ethel (Kathy Bates). For those that missed it, the bearded woman thought that Elsa (Jessica Lange) was responsible for the death of Ma Petite (Jyoti Amge). The small woman was actually killed by Del Toledo (Michael Chiklis), but Ethel was suspicious of Elsa after hearing her plot to “mercy kill” Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson). Ethel confronted her old friend, but the exchange turned sour when she pulled out a gun. With her own life on the line, Elsa threw a knife into Ethel’s eye, killing her immediately.
Poor Jimmy didn’t learn that his mother was murdered. Instead he was fed a line about Ethel taking her own life. Elsa had teamed up with Stanley (Denis O’Hare) to stage a suicide, placing a chain around her neck to decapitate her after her car drove into a tree.
Will someone at the camp be able to help Jimmy snap out of it? Lobster boy ignored Elsa and Maggie (Emma Roberts) in episode 8, but he did seem to find comfort in Elsa’s latest attraction, “fat woman” Ima Wiggles (Chrissy Metz).
Meanwhile, episode 9 will also find Maggie conducting another one of her “readings,” this time with Dandy. Since her first reading sparked mayhem at camp, odds are high that this one won’t fare any better. The synopsis teases that her words “spurs Dandy to action.” And since fans know what Dandy is capable of, it’s safe to say that whatever “action” may come is not good.
Finally, Stanley and Elsa will “track down the Twins.” Where they were is unclear, but where they’re going is bound to have “American Horror Story” viewers screaming.
