The latest episode of “American Horror Story: Freak Show”, Episode 5 “Pink Cupcakes,” was an eye-opener for us fans as we were taken deeper into the real personalities of some of the freaks. Read on for the full recap.

Now that Twisty’s dead, who’s going to carry on with the murders and evil plans? Not that Twisty is THAT evil, but someone might have taken that the wrong way and would like to carry on with the evil stuff. That is no other than Dandy, Twisty's one-time sidekick. He managed to pursue Twisty's “evil ways” by killing Patti Labelle, and his mom found her dad in the dining room. Dandy’s mom was so upset because she knew that it’s her son who killed her, and we didn’t see any signs of remorse from Dandy. 

Desiree was placed in a hospital after having some sexy time with Jimmy, speficially with his lobster hands. Meanwhile, Stankey offered Elsa a different road to fame — television — but Elsa quickly turned this down because she would rather be seen on stage, showcasing her talents live. However, she changed her mind when she performed and got booed.

As for Bette and Dot, they were given poisoned cupcakes by Stanley because he’s really after the prize, and we all know that he’s just playing around with Elsa to get to her freaks and sell all of them and make big bucks. The good news was Bette and Dot didn’t die, but Elsa sent them somewhere where their death may be just imminent — to Dandy’s.

We also found out Del’s deep dark secret and the reason why he has killed the men who slept with his wife — he’s gay and his acts of murder were actually a form of jealousy not because of Desiree but because of the men. We saw him crushing on Andy, but even with his sexuality, he still chose to be with Desiree. This also explained why he didn’t let Desiree lose his masculinity and become a full-fledged woman.

There might also be another gay in the show — Dandy. We learned that his father was a murderer, but we were unsure whether he killed vagrants because they’re homeless or because they’re gay. Gloria, Dandy’s mother, had given us an impression that Dandy is very much the same like his father.
