American Horror Story:Asylum episode 2×13 “Madness Ends” just finished airing the second season finale. Now come discuss the conclusion with other fans here!

It sure has been a crazy season in the Asylum – literally. It seems as though almost every main character has shown a little madness at one time or another. The ambitious Sister Jude started out vicious, not wanting to let anything or anyone get in the way of her vision for Briarcliff. That included committing reporter Lana Winters into Briarcliff when she threatened to reveal Braircliff’s secrets. Jude got her own though, as she was later committed to the asylum herself and descended into madness after shock therapy treatments and medication.

Kit got framed as the serial killer Bloody Face by the man himself, Dr. Thredson. After being released from the asylum, he went on to raise his two children with Alma and Grace. The happy ending was too good to be true when Alma killed Grace. Alma found herself within the confines of the asylum as a patient, where she met her ultimate end. Even as a single father, Kit was determined to do the right thing and go back to shut Briarcliff down.

Fates became intertwined when Jude came under Kit’s custody. Her recovery was slow, but Kit’s two children seem to heal her somehow. Do you think it has to do with the children’s connection to extraterrestrial beings?

Bloody Face’s wrath at Briarcliff wasn’t just for Kit, as he pretended to befriend Lana but actually kidnapped and raped her, then only letting her survive because she carried his child. Lana got her revenge when she shot Thredson in the very house in which he held her captive. She didn’t have the heart to get an abortion and give up her son, Johnny, for adoption. But tonight she came face to face with him.

We learned that Johnny actually was on a vengeful quest to find his mother all of those years. Remember the very first episode of the series, where newlywed Adam Levine had his arm lopped off in the ruins of Briarcliff? That was Johnny’s doing, all the while listening to his mother’s groundbreaking book, Maniac on tape. Johnny was able to work his way into Lana’s later life, until finally he got the motherly attention from her that he’s always wanted.

After the success of that book, Lana went on to have a lucrative career in television reporting. Her chilling TV broadcast about Briarcliff revealed its dark and twisted secrets. Eerily, her clip sounded similar to the real-life exposé of Willowbrook Asylum by Geraldo Rivera in 1972. The show’s last scene came back in a perfect circle to the first time we ever met Lana as a gumshoe reporter and Sister Jude as a steadfast nun.

Did Jude, Kit, and Lana get the endings they deserved? What did you think of the season 2 finale?

    I thought it wrapped up everything, but the aliens, very well. However I think the mysteriousness of the aliens is what made Kit’s ending. Nobody actually knows anything about aliens so it was handled well. My favorite story was the Lana Winters/Bloodyface and I think they ended it great! Lana new what she had started and she had to end it. Unfortunately she had to kill someone else but he kinda deserved it. Overall I loved the way this season was wrapped up.

    I’m just glad that Kit had happy life. It was a nice ending, with everyone’s stories wrapped up well. However, I liked season one a million times better than this season.

    did lana plan it all?

    I was hoping for more bloody campy stuff, but this worked too. The alien stuff was a bit of a let-down, and it’s so ridiculous that so many people could literally just walk out. You think Kit might’ve tried it with Alma. And I so wish good ol’ Tim Howard had gotten publically humiliated. I thought everyone else had a very fitting ending though.

    But overall, I enjoyed it. I’m glad my girl Lana made it out alive, and got to show her cleverness yet again. Seriously, why can’t she be my girlfriend? Sarah Paulson, if you ever find me, we need to have a beautiful night together.

    All I wanted was alittle bit more on the aliens. Everything else was great.

      Ryan Says: “That’s what that was about. I don’t even like to talk about that story because I like that that’s the one thing that everyone can put their own conclusion. Where did they come from? Who were they? … So many people have wildly different ideas of what it was and what it meant. And I wanted it to be that way.”

    well, I think that was an empty ending…I’m not sure what really happened…..did she write a book and that was what we saw or was the season all a thught in Lana Banana’s head? I feel like there was no real ending.

  • Maryann

    oh i did love the season, I thought every episode was fantastic, but the ending left me hanging

  • Sup

    For those confused by the last scene of Lana talking to Sister Jude, thinking that it implies that Lana was let go from the Asylum and was a “twist ending”, it was actually a scene in context of the first episode. The line of dialogue they shared before the doors open came before the moment when Lana observed Kit being brought into the Asylum. So, it wasn’t meant to confuse. Just to serve as a scene that would have happened in the first episode, but we just didn’t see it happen.

    seldomly do i cry, but sister jude with the kids…. just got me

    I felt like sister jude’s dialoge at the end had to have some meaning behind it. Anyone else notice the “eye” that her “stairway to heaven” made? and the strange look that Jude had in her eyes? Was she evil? was she an alien?

    I rather enjoyed the ending. Really nice.

  • potterhead667

    can someone explain to me what was up with the ending where Sister Jude tells Lana about when you look at evil it will look right back at you in the face and what it meant? What happend when the kids went into the forrest with Sister Jude?

    This season’s plot was, in my opinion, a lot more interesting and VARIED than season 1. Season 1 was indeed good but after the first half I was getting kind of tired of the plot hitting always the same notes. Also, in horror in general, I don’t care much for ghosts, an asylum is a much more interesting place to me. All in all, very good season!

  • lauren

    Cut out the whole aliens story line and this season could have been perfect.

    I really enjoyed that the allians ended the way they did. Not knowing suits the show and more importantly this season could not have ended better.

    Jude and the kids . . . the simple words that she spoke wisely of . . . the best emotional scene I think so far.
