American Horror Story: Freak Show Recap
The episode starts off with a very upset Gloria reminiscing about memories of her son, Dandy, and his troubled childhood — is that a cat he killed in the flashback? Yep!
Jimmy went looking for Ma Petite and he was in for a huge shock when he found her laying dead — so sad! He brought her back to Elsa, who was a bawling wreck when she found out. “She was too good for this place,” she told Ethel.
Ethel then accused Elsa of being the one who killed Ma Petite and Elsa slapped her — ouch! The two got into an argument and Ethel pulled out a gun and shot Elsa right through her fake leg. “You broke my heart in two,” Ethel told Elsa after she revealed she still had plans to kill her.

Elsa got Ethel to agree to one last drink together. “We never shared a drink before have we,” Ethel said right before Elsa turned around and chucked a knife right at her face! Death count for the episode: one. Elsa made it look like Ethel killed herself.
Meanwhile, Dandy lit his Christmas tree on fire — NBD. Regina went to his house asking about her mother, who was of course killed by Dandy.
Jimmy drank his sorrows away while Elsa fed her newest “freak,” a fat woman whom she enlisted to perform now that Ethel is dead.
Penny and her pals got revenge on her father who had her face tattooed. They kidnapped him and tortured him. They almost stabbed him to death when Maggie interrupted and stopped them.
Dandy threatened to kill himself by putting a gun to his head and his mother pleaded, “I can’t go on if you kill yourself.” He says “Okay,” turned the gun around and shot her — death count: 2! He then got into a bath of his mother’s blood — um, creeper!
