American Horror Story Episode 13: “Madness Ends”
Written by: Tim Minear
Directed by: Madness Ends
Original airdate: 23 January 2013
The “Madness Ends” this week, as the season two finale brings the audience to present day with a somewhat rewarding sense of closure.
There is a huge contrast between last week’s and this week’s episode. Last week had three different stories taking place in multiple eras, which often included giant time jumps making it hard for the audience to catch everything at once. This week has a more focused narrative, making the episode extraordinarily captivating throughout.
With the emotional stakes much higher this season, another American Horror Story is completed with stunning visuals and the best script yet provided by Tim Minear. Audiences complained that the first season failed to wrap everything up, but this certainly isn’t the case this season. Minear’s script serves as a perfect capstone and features some of the best lines the season has seen.
