Wednesday’s Orphans episode of American Horror Story was kind of a filler, but gave us the back story of both Ma Petite (the world’s smallest woman) and Pepper. Turns out, Elsa Mars (the superlative Jessica Lange) found Pepper at an orphanage not long after fleeing to America from Germany during Hitler’s reign. She is literally WINDOW SHOPPING FOR HUMAN BEINGS. Brilliant.
Shortly after that, Mars convinces a wealthy Indian slave owner to make a trade for his tiny girl lap-dog. While Pepper was free, Elsa gets Ma Petite for the steep price of 3 CASES OF DR. PEPPER. But honestly, how many of us wouldn’t trade our families for an ice-cold soda?
Back to Pepper, non-Dr., Freak Show finally showed us exactly how Asylum relates to the current season, though I really did prefer Lily Rabe as an earth Goddess in flowing white having multiple orgasms to Fleetwood Mac.
Anyway, Rabe is nunned-out and admitting Pepper into the nuthouse after she’s been falsely accused for killing her sister’s baby. I don’t remember anything else that happened in the episode so enjoy this gif of Naomi Grossman texting in Pepper makeup.
