I’m still reeling from “Coven,” which started strong only to dissipate into a sea of goofy noise, so I’m not sure what ever became of Dennis O’Hare’s creepy/touchy Spaulding character. I remember him having Emma Roberts in a box, maybe getting his tongue cut out? In any case, he really liked Jessica Lange.
So hopefully “American Horror Story: Freak Show” is more memorable than Season 3 (and more watchable all the way through – I’m telling you guys… outline). They’re nudging in the correct direction by establishing some conflict. O’Hare tells Vulture, “I’m going to be working at cross-purposes with her.”
He also mentions that he’ll be in all ten episodes, unlike “Coven” (could have fooled me). Oh, and he’ll play “a collector of freaks.“
