Update: Exclusive preview of the clip that Chross has supplied.
I’ve had a report that the first episode of Season 2 of American Horror Story, which premiered last night on FX, had multiple caning related scenes.
“Welcome to Briarcliff” is set in 1964 and takes place in an insane asylum on the east coast. An anonymous emailer told me that Lange caned a man and almost caned a girl and there was some dialogue about this between the man and another girl.
This review says that “Jessica Lange plays Sister Jude (a sadistic nun) who uses caning as a punishment for both wards of the hospital and on Sister Mary Eunice (Lily Rabe)… but Eunice actually seems to enjoy it and gives Jude a larger cane to use on her.”
Can anyone add more info or provide a clip?
It sounds like there could be more to come in episode 2 as Sister Jude attempts to “cure” a lesbian.
