    I agree the Jessica Lange musical number was brilliant. I'm interested to see how this season wraps-up...overall I think it's been quite good - although I'm not crazy about the alien thing. I also think the acting has been very strong... particularly Lily Rabe.

    BTW, did everyone know that Lilly Rabe is Jill Clayburgh's daughter??? I didn't know that until I googled Jill while watching 'Bridesmaids' (again) on HBO!

    I love this season. I wish Chloe Sevigny had a bigger role than she had. Most of the female leads were good strong roles and deserve recognition.

    I still want Murphy to fit in some gratuitous Adam Levine/Joseph Fiennes/Zachary Quinto nudity before the end of the season. :swoon:

    I think that "The Name Game" might be my favorite thing on TV, ever.

    Yes, I also wish we saw more of Chloe Sevigny....maybe she will return for Season 3 in a bigger role.

    Supposedly next season focuses more on "romance" or whatever that means. I still think witches will be involved but romance can also be explained by those juke box songs as they dealt with love but both by force (spells and potions).

    There is one episode left right? I wonder what there is left to do?! But I hope whatever it is, Kit survives and has a happy ending. LOL

    For their final season (which hopefully isn't for a few years), they should have a "Friday the 13th"/"Nightmare on Elm Street"/"Saw" type season where every cast member from every season is killed off week by week until there is only one left in the finale. With Jessica Lange as the last survivor!!!

    How about Agatha Christi style where the last remaining person is the killer?!

    It will probably show what happens to Sister Jude. And the new serial killer (Dylan Mcdermott).

    Hopefully it picks up where the first episode with Adam Levine left off. i want more Adam!!! Even if he's laying dead on a floor the whole episode....nude of course.

    Yeah, I'm hoping against hope that Kit gets whatever passes for a happy ending this season. The poor guy just can't seem to catch any kind of break.

    I enjoyed the season finale. A little bit Adam Levine. A little bit serial killer. Briarcliff shut down.

    And Kit took care of Sister Jude!!! :cheer2: :swoon:

    We all got what we were hoping for.

    I'm ready for season 3!!!

    I also really enjoyed the finale. Everything tied together nicely. Couple things, I missed the beginning....did they show the Adam Levine character? Also, I don't remember what exactly happened to his wife?
    And the very end, with Lana & Sister Jude...the whole evil looks back was lost on me.

    It was lost on me too. I finally read around and realized it was just going back and showing us how true Jude's words were about being careful what you wish for.

    Yes, they showed the modern-day Bloody Face lurking around Briarcliff when the couple was there -- he was the one who took Adam Levine's arm off. A few episodes ago, they showed the wife strapped to a table and Bloody Face Jr. about to do some terrible things to her.

    I really liked that finale. I hope the aliens took Kit somewhere nice and healed him; he deserved it. I thought Jude's relationship with Kit's children was really sweet. And wow -- even though I had a feeling all along that Lana would make it, those last scenes were really tense. I liked this season more than the first one, and I'm not sure why. I think I found the characters more compelling overall.

    Thanks! I did see the episode with the wife strapped to the table - but wondered if they ever confirmed what actually happened to her (I made my own assumption). Agree it was a great season...I remember reading somewhere that season 1 was a family drama and season 2 was a work drama.

    Overall, I think both seasons take themes we can relate to, and expands them to horrific and supernatural proportions. Like in Season 1 - anyone who's had a teenage daughter can relate on some level and in Season 2, most people at some point in life have had a nightmare of a boss, like early Sister Jude. I really find it's just a brilliant series that has left me shocked at times and even horrified...but yes, the characters are fascinating. Really looking forward to what Season 3 brings.

    What did you all think of the season generally?

    I thought that the show did an excellent job of showing irony - Lana Winters (Sarah Paulson) was a horribly victimized by all of Sister Jude (Jessica Lange), Dr. Threadson (Zach Quinto), Dr. Arden (Cromwell), and the Devil (Lilly Rabe). But she ended up being the survivor, coming out on top, famous, wealthy, and she actually became a sadist when it came to her own son (Dylan McDermott).

    Sister Jude was the embodiment of evil at the beginning, but ended up the victim whom you cheered for. I'm glad she found some peace. Her evil actually was slowly overshadowed during the course of the show by Dr. Threadson, Dr. Arden and the Devil.

    Going back, one storyline I enjoyed was the story involving Anne Frank (Franka Potente). I thought it was clever to introduce Anne Frank as a 30-something into a 1964 show.

    Finally saw the season final. So happy that Kit and Lana both had happy lives. I was bracing myself for the absolutely worst. Hopefully the Aliens fixed Kit up and he lived a long and happy life.
