Overall this week saw a more focused effort on taking each of the main characters to their next level, introducing either new factors which could alter their lives or developing their motive and reasoning. The town of Jupiter is now accepting of the freak show so the real drama can only lie within the camp, with the jealous Elsa making what could be a fatal mistake (depending on how vicious she truly is) in selling Bette and Dot to Gloria and Dandy.

Development is good but so are exorcisms, murderous ghosts, demon babies and psychotic murderers.
