Ryan Murphy has only one episode left of season two of "American Horror Story: Asylum." The last episode was a shocking one, especially since Murphy claimed there would be happy endings. Now, Murphy told The Huffington Post on Jan. 17 that the finale will make the audience cry.
"Everyone who has seen it has cried and that includes me and network executives. It’s very, very emotional and sad," Murphy said, adding, "There’s only one person left standing after the season finale."
Interestingly, just when it looked last week like Kit and Grace were getting the happy ending they deserved, everything fell apart this week thanks to Alma and an axe. Add in the fact that it doesn't look like Jude will ever get out of the asylum, which is about to really open its doors to the criminally insane, and a very different Lana, who no longer seems to care about helping people, instead just wanting to sell her book.
Happy endings may not mean what Ryan Murphy believes they do.
Murphy also said the season finale will be a "60 Minutes" styled documentary episode with the present day Lana looking back over her life. By the end, Murphy promises there might not be a dry eye in the house.
"American Horror Story: Asylum" airs its season two finale on Jan. 23 at 10 p.m. EST on FX.
