Denis O'Hare, who has been in six previous AHS seasons, is back in episode 1, the creepily titled "Dollhouse." Yes, we may be free of these marionettes by the end of the first week.
Also returning is Cody Fern, who will appear in episode 2 ("Milkmaids"), after last being seen in "Feral" in season 1.
One of the more exciting appearances this season is a debut: Gabourey Sidibe (Precious, Antelebellum), who was previously only in the big American Horror Story seasons "Coven," "Apocalypse" and "Freak Show." She arrives in the third episode, which also features Max Greenfield.
All that said? Episode 5 is titled "Bloody Mary," and so we're more than amped to hear that Murphy & Co. are tackling that horror story.
