The Plot: The second season follows the patients, doctors and nuns who occupy Briarcliff Mental Institution in Massachusetts in 1964, intercut with scenes from the present. Sister Jude and Sister Mary Eunice maintain the institution that was founded by Monsignor Timothy Howard to treat and house the mentally and criminally insane. Psychiatrist Dr. Oliver Thredson and scientist Dr. Arthur Arden treat the patients within the facility. The patients, many of whom claim to be unjustly institutionalized, include lesbian journalist Lana Winters, accused serial killer Kit Walker, and alleged murderer Grace Bertrand.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll probably be watching this since I did enjoy the first season and found some of the twists and turns to my liking. I do admit that I thought the series was a one and done sort of thing but I am glad that they are not only continuing, but also giving us a different storyline with the latest installment. They might be on to something with this so I wonder what you think about it all. Chime in down below in the comments as that is why the blog has them for you.
