Critic Ratings: 11
Critics Consensus

Comparatively light on horror, "I Am Anne Frank, Part 2" is still full of twists and frights, topped with the return of one hair-raising main character.

Critic Reviews for I Am Anne Frank, Pt. 2

It takes a bit, but "I Am Anne Frank, Part 2" hits a weird, operatic height somewhere in its last third, a height American Horror Story never hit before and a height I'll be very surprised to see it hit again.

At Briarcliff, it's hard to tell what's real. Fitting for an insane asylum. When liars speak, we see their vision. We see fantasies. Who is good, who bad? I'm now on team Jude.

This show is so methed out that a graphic lobotomy scene is one of the calmer moments of this episode.

As usual, the episode was a dark mirror to the dark stories that fill our culture, fictional and otherwise.

"I Am Anne Frank Pt. 2" was a killer episode filled with the right amount of twists and frights, capped off by a perfectly creepy turn by Zachary Quinto.

Despite its full embrace of low-culture tropes, "I Am Anne Frank (Part 2)" verged on high art. SO GOOD.

It's so refreshing to have a show that's not afraid to advance the plot. Too many shows spend an entire season barely advancing anything, only to have everything happen in the last two episodes.

Holy cow, did part two step up and knock it out of the park. This is an absolute game changer of an episode, providing so many left turns that it's impossible to tell just where American Horror Story: Asylum will go from here.

Nothing is as it seems on American Horror Story: Asylum. That has been clear from the beginning. Though what was revealed on "I am Anne Frank, Pt. 2," was so out there that it redefined the word shocking.

Tonight's episode of American Horror Story: Asylum wrapped up the two-parter with character developments across the board, fun cameos and a satisfying reveal at the conclusion.

In a season...that's seemed a bit light on horror, they more than brought the horror elements tonight.
