"American Horror Story: Freak Show" is taking a little holiday hiatus, but FX has offered us a little Christmas treat to tide us over until January 7. This teaser introduces Neil Patrick Harris as Chester, a puppet-loving performer who takes over Elsa's freak show. It looks like Dot and Bette (Sarah Paulson) will finally get a chance at love, or at least lust, thanks to Chester, which opens up a few cans of worms.
First, Dandy (Finn Wittrock) finds out about their new paramour and is super upset, which is cool because it's been at least a week since Dandy's had a huge tantrum. Second, where the heck is Elsa off to? How in the world is this Hollywood plan coming to fruition? Third, it looks like Chester's sidekick isn't just some wooden dummy; we get a little glimpse of "AHS" alum Jamie Brewer made up just like Chester's puppet, and we can guess she won't appreciate the two-headed competition.
There are other bits of things too, like the ongoing Jimmy Darling (Evan Peters) predicament, as well as some more drama between Desiree (Angela Bassett) and Dell (Michael Chiklis). There are only a few episodes left in this season, and it seems that they'll be jam-packed with all the insanity we've come to expect from the "AHS" series.
