I’m simply speechless. Last night truly was a curtain call for one of American Horror Story’s main actors and I still don’t know how to feel about it all. The season finale of Freak Show, appropriately titled Curtain Call, was the final act for many of our freaks but also the final act for a mainstay of the anthology series and she will definitely be missed even if I have argued in the past that it’s time for this show to move on with a fresh start.
The finale was also bittersweet for me because it didn’t have the bat shit crazy appeal that we are so used to from the Murder House, Asylum and even Coven days. This was more of a sending off and I was a bit disappointed we also didn’t get any more connections to previous seasons. That said, the finale still had its moments, especially Jessica Lange’s performance of another David Bowie classic.
