American Horror Story Spoilers: Bloody Face’s Motivation Will Soon Be Known
SPOILERS AHEAD! Stop reading if you've yet to see the episode of American Horror Story: Asylum that aired on November 14.
Bloody Face, the mysterious serial killer of American Horror Story Season 2, Asylum, turned out to be ... Dr. Thredson, the psychotherapist played by Zachary Quinto! We thought he was going to be a "good guy," of sorts, but that's not quite the case.
Zachary talked to Entertainment Weekly about playing the major role. He knew Thredson was Bloody Face from the start, which helped him build the character in a way that made him seem "compassionate and supportive and concerned about the welfare of the patients at Briarcliff, but carrying these ulterior motives.”
What's the story with this guy? And what's he going to do next? “There’s a plan," Zachary said. "He’s fiercely intelligent, and obviously ruthless in his willingness to create this world he’s making for himself. He’s delusional within himself. He’s not trying to sell you a story. He’s trying to believe it himself. You will learn more in the coming weeks about what motivated him to these horrific crimes.”
Zachary also doesn't know how this will end, since the last three scripts aren't finished yet. “I’m as excited to find out as anyone," he said.
The AHS plan has been to do standalone seasons, and the show was just renewed for Season 3. Zachary was on Season 1 as well as Season 2, but right now only Jessica Lange has been confirmed to return for Season 3. We hope Zachary follows suit He is killing it, as usual!
