Just when you think you've got the sane ones figured out, they turn out to be the crazy ones!
American Horror Story's second season continues to ponder the question of sanity and who has it. This week's episode threw most of that up in the air with the introduction of Franka Potente's character named — wait for it — Anne Frank. Yes, that Anne Frank — allegedly. But her insistence that she is the famed Holocaust victim was the least shocking sign of insanity this week, as even Lana (Sarah Paulson), Grace (Lizzie Brochere) and Kit's (Evan Peters) true natures were revealed or tested. So who's sane? Let's take a look at that and other burning questions below:
If you can believe it, a double amputation is only the beginning for American Horror Story: Asylum's resident nymphomaniac Shelley.
Briarcliff Manor's most provocative inmate found herself in the clutches of the dastardly Dr. Arden (James Cromwell), whose mysterious experiments were shown in all their glory this week.

Set in the 1960s, the series takes viewers inside Briarcliff Manor, an asylum for the criminally insane run by the Catholic Church. Where the first season was the study of adultery, Year 2 takes a look at the definition of insanity. From those who run the asylum all the way down to the inmates, it's anyone's guess as to who is truly sane.
American Horror Story's second season asks: What is sanity?
Since Season 2 is a completely different story from the first season, with completely different characters, let's take a look at the 5 things we learned from the season premiere:
Confession of a lifelong horror fan: The first season of FX's American Horror Story left me cold, more appalled than terrified at the overindulgent mishmash of psychosexual poppycock ensnaring unpleasant characters, plus the overkill of a house teeming with too many tedious ghosts, proving the adage that more can be less — effective, that is, although the hype and the buzz carried it to a whopping 17 Emmy nominations (in the miniseries category, where the competition is less fierce).

If you thought American Horror Story's Murder House was spooky, just wait until you experience Briarcliff Manor, the insane asylum at the center of the FX drama's second season, aptly subtitled Asylum.
