'American Horror Story: Asylum' Finale Preview: Lana Comes Clean About Her Lie

January 17, 2013 (8:53 am) GMT
The upcoming season finale will see sort of a battle between old Lana and 48-year old Bloody Face as Johnny sets out to complete his father's work.

": Asylum" will wrap up its 13-episode run next week. Having lived a comfort life as a successful author as seen in the penultimate episode, Lana will finally come clean about a lie she has made for over forty years in the season finale.

After turning her back on her promise of taking down Briarcliff, she will lead the charge to finally shut down the facility, but her life could be in danger once again as Johnny sets out to complete his father's work. Meanwhile, an investigation may lead the officials closer to the person responsible for the murder of at least five people.

"Madness Ends" will air Wednesday, January 23 at 10 P.M. on FX.

Talking about what kind of person Lana has become, Ryan Murphy tells Entertainment Weekly, "I thought it was just fascinating and moving and totally understandable that after all the horrors Lana took refuge and solace in fame and money and celebrity and glamour. I really understood that for her."

The creator of the hit horror series disagrees that Lana is now a horrible person. "After what Lana went through, if she wants to throw on some lip gloss and go on f***ing Dick Cavett? No, I don't think she's horrible at all," he defends the character. "I think she hardened up and I think lost her way, which we will find in the last episode to chilling results."

Of the upcoming season finale, Murphy says it will be a battle between old Lana and 48-year old Bloody Face. "It's sort of a vs. Ted Bundy extravaganza in that finale. That is part of the finale, which is very unexpected, and there's a lot of other things," he teases.

"The season finale is crazy good. Everyone who has seen it has cried and that includes me and network executives. It's very, very emotional and sad," he further gushes. "All the questions are answered and more. The question I get asked the most is, 'Who or what chopped off 's [Leo's] arm?' We dedicate an entire cold opening to that."
