‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ is about to get even freakier! Lily will reprise her demonic ‘AHS: Asylum’ role as Sister Mary Eunice — everyone’s favorite nun/devil! HollywoodLifers, are YOU stoked to see Lily return to ‘AHS’?
Any fan of American Horror Story knows how wonderfully Lily Rabe, 32, played an innocent nun gone bad. Fortunately, we’ll get another glimpse of Sister Mary Eunice before she goes over to the dark side! During Freak Show‘s 10th episode, Lily will show up in Jupiter, Fla. and pay a visit to the freaks. We may barely recognize Sister Mary Eunice in her old timid role, but regardless, we can’t wait to see her back on the small screen!
Lily Rabe In ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ — Her Return As ‘Asylum’ Nun
Though each season of American Horror Story is a new installment, show creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck LOVE to connect the separate storylines as much as they can.
Just as we got to see Pepper’s (Naomi Grossman) pre-Asylum story on Freak Show, now we’ll learn what Sister Mary Eunice was up to before she took her doomed position at Briarcliff Manor, Entertainment Weekly reports. What Sister Mary is doing exploring the freak show, we don’t know, but we are dying to find out! Lily will appear in one episode, which happens to be the big winter cliffhanger — so something BIG is bound to happen!
Since this will be a pre-devil Sister Mary, perhaps there will be some foreshadowing of her dark future. It’s hard to remember Sister Mary as the gentle nun who was too afraid to stand up for herself. Her backstory will especially be interesting since she’ll probably come face to face with future Briarcliff inmate Pepper! Something tells us Sister Mary is going to fit right in with the freaks.
‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’: The Story Of Edward Mordrake, Who Was Real, By The Way
Not only do Ryan and Brad love to connect characters and their timelines, but they also do a splendid job of incorporating real facts and urban legends into the show.
During the haunting Halloween episode, we were introduced to Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley), who was based off a 19th century nobleman. Legend has it that Edward had a demonic face on the back of his head, which could reportedly laugh and cry. He committed suicide at the age of 23.
Jessica Lange‘s character, Elsa, summoned his spirit on Halloween and now he’s off to bring one more freak to the other side with him during the upcoming Oct. 29 episode. Let us know who you think will join Edward on the dark side!
So HollywoodLifers, are YOU as excited as we are to see Lily Rabe reprise her role as Sister Mary Eunice on Freak Show? Sound off below!
