Wanna know what season 3 of American Horror Story will be? Then you’d better tune into tonight’s installment of AHS: Asylum, titled “The Name Game.” Hidden within the episode is a clue to the plot of the show’s next incarnation. Teases co-creator Ryan Murphy, “It’s not done like it was last year. It’s a different kind of clue. You really have to be quick and watch. I made sure to put it in there for the fans because I know people loved that last year, figuring it out.”
Last year, Ryan Murphy told EW that a clue to the plot of season 2 of American Horror Story was hidden in episode 11, called “Birth.” True to his word, Sarah Paulson’s psychic Billie Dean gave a speech about the evil energy generated by places like prisons and asylums, which is, of course, the setting for the FX hit’s second season.
Watch closely tonight, AHS fans, and post your theories! And stay tuned to EW.com for our exclusive post-mortem Q&A with Murphy.
