Set in 1964, the FX drama series American Horror Story: Asylum takes viewers into Briarcliff, a haven for the criminally insane, ruled with an iron fist by Sister Jude (Jessica Lange), a nun with a troubled past.  Inside this locked down facility, danger lurks around every corner, whether it’s a doctor who loves to torture, flesh eating creatures in the forest, alien experimentation or the serial killer Bloody Face, and no one is safe.  From co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the show also stars Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Zachary Quinto, James Cromwell, Joseph Fiennes and Lizzie Brochere.

After so many twists and turns throughout this season, FX invited some reporters over to 20th Century Fox last week to screen the final episode and do a Q&A with show creator Ryan Murphy.  During the interview, he talked about what he wanted to say with the season finale, how he feels about the alien aspect, the storyline that he had considered cutting out, what director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon has added to the show, whether he’s ever thought about doing anything to connect the seasons, and that Oscar-winning actors are asking to do arcs on the show.  He also gave hints about what he’s looking to do for Season 3, and talked about the modern-day remake of The Town that Dreaded Sundown that he’s looking to do with Alfonso Gomez-Rejon directing and Jason Blum (producer of the Paranormal Activity films) producing.  Hit the jump for the interview, and be aware that there are some major spoilers, if you haven’t seen this season.

During this recent interview to promote his return to the series, actor Dylan McDermott (who played Murder House patriarch Ben Harmon) talked about his new role, how his return came about, his character’s sole purpose in life, that you really need to be fearless to do some of the things that the actors have to do on the show, why he thinks the show resonates with viewers, the type of horror that appeals to him, how these characters’ storylines will be wrapped up by the end of the season, and that he’d love to return for Season 3.  In addition, he revealed he was almost on SNL last week for the Dylan McDermott or Dermot Mulroney sketch.  Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers
