Murphy spoke to the press at a recent screening of the final episode and talked about Lange’s role in S3:
The thing that I really wanted to do next season was something that’s funnier. I love this season and I think it was successful, but I really miss that Jessica Lange as Constance stuff, and I know she missed it, too. The only thing I’ll say about [season three] is that it’s a mixture of several cities, and it’s really about female power. I got Jessica to do it because I did everything she asked, which was the location, and I also told her that she would have complete hair and make-up and the best designer gowns, ever. She said, “Please don’t put me in a wimple again, ever!.” So, she’s going to play a real glamour cat lady, in season three.Season 2 in ending this Wednesday. It was wild and wonderful and deliciously disturbing. Do you agree? Thanks to io9.com,we can catch an early glimpse as to what the final episode of Season 2 will bring. Spoilers, so beware!
- Four major characters die in the season finale but the Angel of Death (Frances Conroy) only appears to one of them.
- Adam Levine's Leo and Jenna Dewan-Tatum's Teresa return and we learn how Leo lost his arm in the first episode.
- The whereabouts of the taped confession by Thredson (Zachary Quinto) to Lana will be revealed.
- New love interests are introduced for two of the characters and one couple even has a wedding.
In an interview over at EW.com, Murphy talks about Lana’s transformation after finding success with her book Maniac. Here’s a taste of what Murphy thinks:
EW: It does sort of seem like Lana is a horrible person now.
Murphy: Oh no! No! After what Lana went through, if she wants to throw on some lip gloss and go on f—ing Dick Cavett? No, I don’t think she’s horrible at all. I think she hardened up and I think lost her way, which we will find in the last episode to chilling results.
What do you think of Lana now? How will be meeting with her son, Bloody Face, Jr. go? What do you want to see in Season 3?
Watch the final episode of American Horror Story: Asylum this Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
