1225449As the episode begins, we see Maggie performing some fortune telling for Dandy while in a flash back we get to see more than she can. Apparently, Dandy has been busy playing with puppets and he seems to have casted his mother’s corpse and the head of another woman’s to play the role of Dot and Bette. By the end of the fortune telling, Maggie states that Dandy will be able to carry on doing whatever he is may be doing and assuming that Maggie has the slightest hint of what she is talking about, Dandy feels relieved and thanks her with a hundred dollar note. While he is on his way out, Dandy is whistling, which catches the attention of Jimmy, who then accuses him of being the ‘other clown’ and a killer. Quite unmoved by the accusation, Dandy calls Jimmy a drunk and moves on.American-Horror-Story-Sarah-Paulson

With the help of a note Elsa and Stanley found at Ethel’s place, they are able to track the twins down. They try to convince them that the twins are safer with them than anywhere else and Dot is obviously doubtful. Elsa then throws her a bone saying that the doctor she wanted to separate them is on his way and that being all Dot cares about, gets her on board but at the same time, Bette is clearly disappointed. We understand from later scenes that Elsa was not completely okay with the idea of the twins operation but after some convincing from Stanley, she reconsidered her views.
