Critic reviews for Edward Mordrake, Pt. 2

Freak Show, by dropping a few characters, losing the obligatory song, and tightening its belt, got good this week.

"Edward Mordrake: Part 2" is all about backstory, making it something of a welcome departure from the first three episodes of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

This is "Asylum" on steroids, and there's none of the camp of "Coven" to cut the darkness.

I must say, this episode went into some decidedly unexpected places, and I'm not just talking about that insanity in Berlin.

Not only is it a nice change of pace to finally get to see some of the secondary characters get their moment in the spotlight, but it's also a welcome addition to have flashbacks tell their stories.

I should've known it was nothing but an origin story.
