American Horror Story Spoilers: Ryan Murphy Talks “Shocking” Episode 4 and Franka Potente’s Top-Secret Character
Halloween may be over, but American Horror Story: Asylum creator Ryan Murphy seems to have some truly chilling experiences in store for us next week.
The show’s producer has already dropped some bombs about the upcoming Episode 4, which airs on November 7, including the fact that it contains “the most disturbing scene” the crew has ever worked on.
“It is a tragic thing,” Murphy told Entertainment Weekly about the shocking things in store for Shelley. “I did think that she’s a tragic character. Her dilemma and her pain and her trying to escape in the next couple of episodes is a really big plot point so I don’t wanna say much. When you see the evolution of what Dr. Arden continues to do to her, it’s pretty amazing.”
With Episodes 4 and 5 titled “I Am Anne Frank Part I and Part II,” Murphy also promises to reveal some super-secret character backstories and the roles of upcoming guest stars, including Franka Potente who he finally admits will be playing the role of Anne Frank.
“I just think that by the end of 5 we’ve pretty much told everybody what all the secrets and backstories of all the characters are,” Murphy said. “And I think the social statement that it makes about women in the time is very sort of great.”
