Dell (Michael Chiklis) needed some time in the spotlight and in American Horror Story: Freak Show episode 7 he finally gets it, but it doesn’t do him much good at all. The show’s been playing the same game with the character since the moment he arrived at Elsa’s Cabinet of Curiosities. Dell does terrible things, but then we get a quick glimpse of him looking sad and remorseful and are expected to believe the guy’s got a heart. No more. Dell wasn’t really in a position to carry an episode to begin with, but he gets away with it because the characters around him are so strong that his effect on them still has great value. But, when it comes to Dell as an individual, at this point, he’s a lost cause. There’s just no coming back from what he does at the end of “Test of Strength.” The writers might as well stop playing the back-and-forth game and just turn him into a full-blown villain.
