American Horror Story : Asylum is the second season of the series and features much of the first season cast, with new faces of course. In this season we venture into madness...

Sister Jude, portrayed by Jessica Lange, runs an asylum and seeks redemption for past sins. She is motivated by her faith and her admiration for Monsignor Howard.

Within the asylum are an array of mad souls, as well as misunderstood and wrongly convicted, but Jude seeks God's power to help them. However, another only wants to use them to further his research. Dr. Arden, a Nazi war criminal, uses the "freaks" as guinea pigs in his experiments.

He is not the only murderer among the staff... There is also a psychiatrist, meant to evaluate the suspected Bloody Face. But it is revealed the good Dr. Thredson is actually the killer.
