American Horror Story Asylum: Christmas Reef From Ep. 208 “Unholy Night”
American Horror Story: Asylum sure has a fun way of saying, “Happy Holidays!” The episode starts off with an introduction to Mr. Emerson (McShane) as he puts a few bullets into a store version of Jolly Ol’ St. Nick. We then get to see Emerson terrorize (and eventually kill) just six days before Christmas. Jumping back to our current time in 1964, Christmas has come to Briarcliff. Sister Mary Eunice’s influence continues to swell and Dr. Arden appears to have second thoughts about trusting her. He forms a false alliance with Sister Jude, who ends up fighting for her life against the deranged Emerson in a Santa suit. Meanwhile, Thredson and Lana are reunited in a rather creepy fashion, but Kit manages to save the day (and Lana’s literal skin). This large reef is the perfect holiday decoration.
