'American Horror Story: Freak Show' RECAP - 'Curtain Call' [Spoilers]

Popcorntime

And with that, season four of American Horror Story draws to a close. Not with a bang, but with a whole lot of bangs.

If there's one thing tonight's Freak Show finale delivered, it was a high body count. Everything about this season has been uneven, from the tone to the pacing to the overall themes. The only constant seemed to be a constant stream of new characters to introduce, including one introduced in tonight's final episode. What Freak Show lacked in focus, it certainly made up for with a steady stream of unlucky lambs to lead to one particularly grand slaughter.

Of course, the downside is I'm left wondering why we bothered getting to know some of these characters at all. 

See who's left standing, AFTER THE JUMP ...

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' RECAP - 'Show Stoppers' [Spoilers]

Desireeparty

With only one episode left this season, American Horror Story: Freak Show has started to resolve its many plotlines with, predictably, a fairly high body count. Now, granted, a few of these characters and conflicts have only just been introduced, but that's par for the course on this show, where it feels like each week more and more crazy gets added to the mix.

Still, at least we're getting some resolution. In that regard, there was a lot of satisfaction to be found in tonight's installment, "Show Stoppers." If you've been waiting for some of these characters to get their comeuppance, you're in luck.

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' RECAP - 'Orphans' [Spoilers]

Pepper

 If this was American Sob Story: Freak Show, tonight's episode would have been stupendous. However, tonight's exposition-heavy hour (and then some) fell far short in the whole 'horror' department, with nary a scare to be found. Instead, we heard lots of back story, lots of history.

As a self-contained arc for two-time AHS character Pepper (Naomi Grossman), it was an excellent showcase, making Pepper one of the purest (and most tragic) figures ever on this show. Grossman's performance pushed through all the prosthetics to deliver something raw and relatable, even without her character's ability to articulate her feelings. But as a fall finale, there was much to be desired. Yes, besides the excellent Pepper story, we did move a few major pieces into places, but nothing too surprising.

Let's dig into the details, AFTER THE JUMP ...
