American Horror Story: Freak Show” Episode 7 “Test of Strength” revolved around Dell. We know he’s a strong man… physically, though, and his true strength was tested. The man he’s been in love with has died, and he can’t seem to move on from this. He lost his temper when he got to the bar and found that he’s not there anymore. Stanley was there to witness him lash out in anger, and he used this against him. He told him that he will not say anything about what he saw and what Dell did in exchange for a dead freak. Of course, Dell agreed.

His first target? Amazon Eve, which was a wrong choice because she’s so strong, and their fight ended with him being thrown outside her trailer. Since he failed, his next target was Jimmy, his own son. However, it didn’t turn out well because it turned so much better when the two of them had an emotional heart-to-heart talk. Dell is really a softie inside.

Still, Dell was out to get blood in his hand because he couldn’t risk anyone knowing his true gender preference. His next target? Ma Petite. Of course, she died because she’s so small. Dell easily killed her.

As for Bette and Dot, the two were playing Elsa when they started to demand more from her, and this pissed Elsa. Stanley suggested that she kill them instead, and Elsa did consider this.

There was also Jimmy and Maggie who wanted to run away but can’t. While Penny came home to her father, he wasn’t so mad at her because he had a plan for her. He brought over a guy for Penny, and he gave her a face tattoo, forked her tongue like a lizard’s and shaved her hair. And what was Paul’s reaction? He still accepted her.
