Critic Consensus: Forgoing the regular camp, "Dark Cousin" makes some poignant historical references while serving up a hefty dose of creep and gore.

Critic reviews for Dark Cousin
WHAT a show it was this week. "Dark Cousin" was immediately one of my favorite ever episodes of AHS the second that guest-star Frances Conroy appeared onscreen as a goth geisha and unfurled her feathered wings. YES.
It looks like after giving viewers a bit of history, American Horror Story: Asylum is getting back on track with the stories at hand.
"Dark Cousin" was an odd episode of American Horror Story: Asylum - and not in the normal American Horror Story freaky, scary or horrific way. It felt like a transitional hour that moved characters from one place to another.
"Dark Cousin" had some pretty interesting connective tissue, but it faltered under some wicked moments of lunacy.
