'American Horror Story' Season 4 Spoilers, Plot Leak: Stolen Script Gives Important Details About 'Pepper the Pinhead' Connection
It sounds like something straight out of a writer's mind to be used as a plot device, but the fact is that the script for one of the coming episodes of the drama-horror thriller anthology series "American Horror Story" (Wednesdays, 10 p.m. on FX) has been stolen.
The "Freak Show" script is said to give out important details about Pepper's (Naomi Grossman) asylum connection.
The theft is said to have happened during the show's taping in New Orleans. No one as of yet has found who the thief is But one thing is certain: the script contains explanations on how Pepper the Pinhead wound up in Briarcliff Manor as one of its patients.
Briarcliff, which used to be a ward for the tubercular in Boston, was a crucial setting in Season 2 ("Asylum") of "American Horror Story."
This current season's "Freak Show" has been dominated mostly by the creepiness of Twisty the Clown. But it's now clear with the release of details after one of the scripts was stolen, that Twisty hasn't cornered the market when it comes to terrible deeds.
One of the proofs of this has been revealed by Sister Mary Eunice (Lily Rabe), who cited the reason why Pepper landed in Briarcliff Manor. She (Pepper) had been charged of having drowned an innocent (the baby of her sister). And that's not all. Pepper was also said to have cut off the poor little baby's ears. Talk about being criminally insane. Those scenes are great, horrifying examples.
But then again, Pepper passed on the blame to her brother-in-law, and said she had only been framed, due to her being a freak.
There's much more behind this controversy, so don't miss the next episode of "American Horror Story" on Nov. 19.
