But first, TVGuide.com quizzed Evan Peters, who plays Ben's homicidal dreamer psych patient Tate, about all the questions lingering from last week: i.e. Why does Tate know so much about what lurks in the basement? What's his deal with Rubber Man? Is he working for Constance? While we're at it: What's so great about Violet anyway?
