During the Freak Show none of them would’ve said Finn Wittrock’s Dandy Mott is going to be the main character of the season. But with Tupperware Party Massacre, it’s clear that the origin stories of Dandy and Jimmy are the logical character arcs being developed in this sequence and are not so bad.
Bette and Dot, Jimmy, Dandy, and Dell are the main characters in Freak Show and consistently talked with their own freakishness.
Jimmy spends the episode drunk and unsatisfied. Jimmy is also providing the grossly fat lady Ima Wiggle with food. They were intervened by Maggie and called him out for his drunkenness, and he dictates on Ima’s softness, a frequently used descriptor in the show. He slips out onto the grounds and hears the whistling of Dandy who had been receiving a fortune from Maggie who by the way is a scam. They both have a confrontation and Dandy oaths to ruin Jimmy’s life for taking away Bette and Dot.
Jimmy leads to a suburban Tupperware party to finger-bang some housewives, but he’s too drunk and keeps missing. He leaves, but almost bumped into Dandy at the party. He fascinates his way into the party. The title of that episode is“massacres the women, dumping their bodies in an indoor pool and filling a few Tupperware containers with their blood so that he can bathe in it later.”
Regina asked him where her (dead) mother is. Dandy tells her, he killed her.She returns with a policeman who suddenly shoots her in the head when Dandy offers him a million dollars.
Next the Tattler twins shuttled out of camp by Ethel were retrieved by Elsa and Stanley and taken to a metal shack in the woods. Stanley’s hired a male prostitute to roleplay as a doctor who can separate the twins. Elsa has been assured, while she’s moved by her own uncertainty and greed, and unaware to Stanley’s own motivations. Stanley’s plan is for naught— one of the series’ best acted scenes — Bette and Dot have a confrontation and decided to abandon the idea of separation surgery.
Out of nowhere the twins take off their robe and confess their love for Jimmy. Jimmy climbs out of his drunkenness and tells them he loves somebody else (Maggie!). He helps them back into their robe, and gets jumped by the police, who paid off by Dandy. They take him in for the murders of the women at the Tupperware party.
Dell, after having sex with Stanley, and driven by visions of Ma Petite and Ethel, hangs himself. He’s saved by Desiree, who just reunited with Angus T. Jefferson, an unmistakably her old flame.
It was one of the best of the season. Elsa was mercifully absent. Finn Wittrock as Dandy has really uncanny ability to swing between completely charming and sadistic. He’s been established as the ultimate villain. It might not be the most interesting plotline, but it is a plotline, and that’s more that can be said for most of the season.
