    This reminds of the experiments that they talked to us about in school. There was one, I believe it was called eugenics. They experimented on individuals reproductive systems, and ended up being sterile as a result.

    This episode... I dunno. I was on board until this one. I'll keep watching, but it seems like they're doing horrible things to the characters just to do horrible things and to squeeze in as many as possible. It's not so much scary as making me feel bad for the characters and I want to look away because I feel bad for them.

    When the new character says her name I actually said out loud "Oh come on!" The story line about the doctor being an nazi actually fits with his persona and the era of the show but her name/character... please, I can only suspend disbelief for so long.

    But I'll stay with it. I thought last season the story line got absurd but I love the characters. That's why I watch.

    A part of me feels they crossed a line with this episode. Anne Frank...I will continue to watch to see how the story progresses.

    Wednesday was a rough day and I was looking forward to a new episode all day. I got through the opening credits and I was out like a light. No reruns and not on demand yet. I'm going to wait and see how long it takes to get on demand before I break down and order it on Amazon. Read the recaps though. Weird. I'm only giving the writers this much trust because they tied everything together so nicely last season. They'd better be coming to the point of this thing pretty soon.

    I'll stick with it, I'm hopeful, but it's definitely turning to the absurd. Not here for a weekly torture porn show. That's not what a good horror story means to me. And maybe I'm being too sensitive, but the Anne Frank storyline just seems really disrespectful to me.

    Yeah, the Anne Frank storyline is horrible. I hope they're taking it somewhere twisty, because this week's ep is part 2 and has the same title. It was so distasteful it made me angry and I don't want to touch it with a 10-foot pole.

    I have a feeling Anne Frank wouldn't mind her name being used to expose Nazi scum. These Paperclip Nazis were all over our institutions, with determined help from American Fascists, and people need to know that.

    Didn't love this episode. I saw that Bloody Face will be revealed. Will it be Quinto?

    I have a suspicion Quinto might have killed Lana's lover copycat-style, which would explain why he still thinks Tate--I mean Kit!--is the real killer. I thought it was odd that he went rifling through Lana-banana's photos when the house was a crime scene.

    Anne Frank died as a teenager, under horrible circumstances. Writing a story where she lived, married, and had children opens up a horrible can of worms that I would rather not have opened. Also, her story was horrible enough without connecting her to Nazi doctors conducting experiments when there is not any evidence that ever happened to her. (Am I wrong?) As far as I know, she was starving and miserable and became very ill and died from lack of medical care. There were plenty of concentration camp victims that were experimented on, and the writers could have made up a name for a character and gone with it and the story would have been a lot more acceptable to me.

    But it wouldn't have the shock factor that Anne Frank does. That's what this show is about right now.
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    True. I'll wait and see what happens the rest of the season, but I hope the show won't continue down this road of shock and gross-out horror.

    I see her fictional incarnation--whether or not she is indeed AF or an Anastasia type imposter---as heroic. What's wrong with that? Even if she was never experimented on in the camps why would you think Anne would object to someone using her name in order to expose the horrors inflicted on her fellow prisoners?

    I don't see this storyline in any way, shape, or form as educating people that there were Nazi doctors brought to the US to use their knowledge. I see it instead as connecting the true, tragic story of a young woman to a fictional, disgusting Boxing Helena story. For me the point is not whether I think she would have objected or not, but rather that it muddies what really happened to her. Just as much as a viewer might get the idea that the US brought over Nazi doctors (which is true), there might also be a thread of thought that Anne Frank did not really die, and give fuel to some disgusting Holocaust deniers. Or people who decide to add to her real story for shocking effect, or who think that what happened to her was somewhat less awful because she wasn't experimented on. Those are the types of things I think should be avoided.

    We're going to have to agree to disagree on this one, because I will never change my mind about the irresponsible nature of this storyline, whereas you will continue to see it as a good thing.
