Lily Rabe talks her return to 'American Horror Story' -- exclusive

[SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE LATEST INSTALLMENT OF AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW.]

The most recent episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Show marked a homecoming of sorts for Lily Rabe. The actress, who appeared on all three previous installments of AHS but is now shooting her ABC thriller The Whispers, returned to play her Asylum character, Sister Mary Eunice. The kind nun was seen dealing with Pepper (Naomi Grossman), after she was sent to Briarcliff by her malicious sister (Mare Winningham). Though it was a brief appearance, it was also a marked difference from the demon-possessed woman last seen in Asylum.

EW talked exclusively to Rabe about returning to AHS and fan theories about further connections. READ FULL STORY

'AHS: Freak Show' Post-Mortem: Kathy Bates talks the latest shocking twist!

[SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE LATEST EPISODE OF AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW!!!]

It’s been a couple weeks since we’ve had a new episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show and boy did it return with a vengeance! Not one but two major characters—Kathy Bates’ Ethel Darling and Frances Conroy’s Gloria Mott—were killed off in shocking form. Unlike last year’s Coven where death could be reversed via magic, Freak Show‘s goodbyes appear to be more permanent. Murphy told EW at the beginning of Freak Show‘s run, “This season, once you die, you’re dead.” EW talked to Bates about saying goodbye to Ethel and whether she’s really gone for good.

'AHS: Freak Show' Exclusive: Watch Evan Peters perform Nirvana's 'Come As You Are'

Last night was a wild American Horror Story: Freak Show, to say the least. Not only did we witness the death of—SPOILER ALERT—tiny Ma Petite, but we were also treated to Freak Show‘s latest musical number: Evan Peters’ Jimmy Darling tried his hand at singing Nirvana’s “Come As You Are.” Elsa (Jessica Lange) wasn’t too impressed…but we were.

'AHS: Freak Show' First Look: See Evan Peters singing Nirvana's 'Come As You Are'

Some of American Horror Story: Freak Show‘s most talked-about moments this season have been the Baz Luhrmann-esque musical numbers, like Jessica Lange’s cover of David Bowie’s “Life on Mars” or Sarah Paulson’s version of Fiona Apple’s “Criminal.” Another major modern artist is covered in tonight’s installment of AHS—Evan Peters, who plays Jimmy Darling, croons Nirvana’s classic “Come As You Are.” It’s part of a crucial episode for Jimmy (and for Peters, who’s excellent) as well as Michael Chiklis’ Dell Toledo.

And there’s more music to come: Kathy Bates—yes Kathy Bates—will be doing Hole’s “Doll Parts” in an upcoming episode.  As Ryan Murphy explained to EW, “We decided we only were going to highlight musical artists who at some point in their career had identified themselves as feeling like freaks or misfits or outcasts, which our people are going through.”

American Horror Story: Freak Show airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. on FX.

Lily Rabe to appear on 'American Horror Story: Freak Show,' reprise 'Asylum' role

The American Horror Story installments of Asylum and Freak Show just became even more connected: EW has exclusively learned that Lily Rabe will be appearing on Freak Show and reprising her Asylum role as nun Sister Mary Eunice. The actress, who has appeared in every season of AHS and is currently starring in the ABC midseason series The Whispers, will shoot her spot this weekend.

The reason for Sister Mary’s return involves Pepper (Naomi Grossman) and how she ended up going from the freak show to Asylum‘s titular institution, Briarcliff. Rabe’s appearance will be on AHS‘ 10th episode, which is their big winter cliffhanger.

EW has also confirmed reports that Neil Patrick Harris and his husband, David Burtka, will indeed appear on Freak Show this season but in separate episodes.

Watch Jessica Lange's 'AHS: Freak Show' cover of Lana Del Rey's 'Gods & Monsters'

American Horror Story: Freak Show has already seen Jessica Lange cover David Bowie’s “Life on Mars” and Sarah Paulson take on Fiona Apple’s “Criminal.” In Wednesday night’s Halloween episode, Lange’s Elsa Mars went full-on glam for a performance of Lana Del Rey’s “Gods & Monsters.” It was such an epic number that it even attracted freak-show urban myth Edward Mordrake (Wes Bentley), a deadly spirit with two faces. Fun times.
