'American Horror Story'

Sister Mary Eunice has a word with Frank. (FX / November 29, 2012)

"I want this to be as painless as possible," Thredson tells Lana. "I can either cut your throat or I can strangle you. I don't believe in guns."

Dr. Thredson tries to tie Lana down and go in for the kill, but she resists.

Lana smashes a picture over the doctor's head and really makes Thredson take on the meaning of his name -- Bloody Face. 

Her escape is cut short however, as she jumps from one madman to another. Lana enters the car of the first person she sees and the driver happens to have issues with women, just like Thredson. The man's wife cheated on him with another man, and because Lana is also a woman, she too shall suffer.

The angel reappears as the man puts a gun to his throat, pulls the trigger, and blows his face apart, leaving Lana to endure the ensuing car accident. But hey, she gets to return to Briarcliff.

Lana may be wishing she granted her life to the Angel of Death, now. If not, she will be sorry when she becomes another Arden experiment or is "punished" by Sister Mary Eunice.

Sorry seems to be the hardest word

At the scene of Sam Goodman's homicide, Sister Jude gets a call from a familiar voice.

"It's your conscious calling," the voice says.

On the other end is Sister Mary Eunice and she's back at her manipulative ways, threatening to use her knowledge of Sister Jude's hit-and-run to her advantage.

"I know everything," Mary Eunice says. "I was in your head, remember? Don't even think of coming back here, Judy."

Sister Jude doesn't go back to Briarcliff, but she does visit the family of the girl she struck with her car. The former nun tries to apologize, but the words don't seem to come out, even after discovering the girl survived the accident and is now an adult.

"We get to live with our daughter," says the girl's mother. "The monster who left her there, has to live with himself."

Sister Jude makes one last stop on her self-pity tour, this time to a local diner, where she almost slits her wrists in the bathroom (It's the most red we've seen in the show since Sister Jude was flailing around in her undergarments and "ravish-me-red" lipstick).

The Angel of Death comes swooping in and Sister Jude is left to explain herself.

"I'm just the girl who cried wolf," Sister Jude says as she laments on all the times she's considered ending her life.

Two waitresses at the diner observe, seeing only Sister Jude as she shakes her head.

"Poor thing," one waitress says. "Maybe we should call Briarcliff. At least they could give her a bed for the night."

One is the loneliest number

Wanting to escape so he can reunite with Grace, Kit assaults his public defender and returns to Briarcliff. He travels underground, through the death chute, and into the asylum.
