Hope you didn’t watch episode 9 of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” on a full stomach. “Tupperware Party Massacre” aired on FX on Wednesday, taking the miniseries on a whole new twisted path.
Episode 9 kicked off with Dandy (Finn Wittrock) visiting Maggie (Emma Roberts) for a reading. Maggie fed him lines, and Dandy was happy with his “future.” But the crystal ball exposed a gruesome past – Dandy had killed an Avon consultant, decapitated her and sewed her head onto his mother’s body so that way she looked like Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson).
Dandy’s chipper attitude after leaving Maggie changed when he exited the tent to be confronted by Jimmy (Evan Peters). Bette and Dot were missing and Jimmy believed that Dandy was responsible. What he didn’t realize is that his mother, Ethel (Kathy Bates), had hidden the twins from Elsa (Jessica Lange) and Stanley (Denis O’Hare) prior to her death.
Dandy wasn’t happy to be accused of hurting the twins, and grew more upset when Jimmy named him as the other clown that was killing people in Jupiter. Jimmy was drunk, but Dandy vowed to “destroy” him and “everything” that he loved. But what did Jimmy love? Lobster boy ruined his relationship with Maggie by sleeping with Ima Wiggles (Chrissy Metz). The freak show’s newest attraction believed that Jimmy was in love with her, but Maggie warned her that he’d sleep with anything while drunk. Ima threatened to “flatten” Maggie, but Maggie wasn’t afraid to speak her mind about Jimmy’s unraveling.
Meanwhile, Stanley and Elsa found the twins holed up at a motel. Bette and Dot were weary of Stanley and Elsa’s intentions, however Stanley dropped a bomb on them – he was able to reach the famed doctor who separated conjoined twins before. Bette was hurt over the idea, calling it barbaric. But Dot was ecstatic at the thought of finally becoming her own person. Unfortunately Stanley was lying about getting in touch with the doctor. He tricked Elsa as well, and instead had one of his many lovers agree to play the part of the doctor so that way he’d be able to euthanize them – not separate them.
The thought of separating caused the twins to have a heart-to-heart. Dot admitted to Bette that she didn’t want her dead; she just simply wanted to live a normal life. Meanwhile Bette confessed that she wouldn’t be able to survive alone, and that if only one of them could live she’d want it to be her sister.
Elsewhere outside of camp, Jimmy continued to spiral out of control. He attended a “Tupperware party” to use his deformity to pleasure some bored housewives, but he ended up being too drunk to satisfy anyone. Before they could kick him out he began hallucinating his mother. When he finally snapped out of it they threw him out – but a new monster arrived at the door. Charming Dandy claimed to have car trouble and asked to use the phone. The lady of the house gladly let him in, but we’re sure she regretted it. Her husband came home to find their pool full of blood and the entire group of women floating in it ... dead.
That wasn’t the worst of it though. Dandy brought the fun home, filling his bathtub with blood that he stored in Tupperware from the party. Regina (Gabourey Sidibe) walked in just in time to see his new grooming habit. Angry over getting the run around about her mother’s disappearance, Regina threatened to call the cops on Dandy. But she didn’t need to … because Dandy admitted to killing her mother and his own. He explained that he had discovered the “power” of bathing in blood and that he’s a “god chosen to walk among men.”
Regina was horrified, but surprisingly Dandy didn’t have any plans on murdering her after revealing his dark secret. He told her that she was the only one in the house “worth a d---.” However Regina didn’t feel the same way about him. She begged to be let go and he agreed to free her.
Regina got off easy, and so did Del (Michael Chiklis). Feeling guilty and tired of being “owned” by Stanley, Del decided to take his own life. He wrote a suicide note and tied a noose around his neck. Del was struggling with the noose and was taking his last few gasps of air when Desiree (Angela Bassett) walked in. She quickly cut her estranged husband down, saving his life.
Episode 9 of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” ended with a couple of twists. Regina showed up at Dandy’s house with a police officer. The police officer seemed to believe Regina, especially because Dandy’s attitude was erratic. With his hand reaching for his gun, it seemed as if the police officer might end Dandy’s reign of terror over Jupiter. However Dandy was surprisingly convincing. After gloating about his wealth, Dandy told the police officer to dig a hole for Regina. He offered the cop one million dollars in cash if he took care of his small problem – and the cop agreed without a second thought. He swiftly put a bullet through Regina’s head.
Regina died, but the twins avoided death for another week. They rethought Stanley’s offer to cut them in half and paid Jimmy a visit. The twins offered themselves up to Jimmy, and he played along – at first. He told them that while he cares deeply about them, he couldn’t pursue anything because he was in love with someone else.
Unfortunately Jimmy didn’t have time to pursue his true love. The police showed up and arrested Jimmy for the Tupperware party massacre.
