Unraveling the truth on 'American Horror Story'

Wednesday night's episode of "American Horror Story: Asylum" likely appeased viewers who complained that the show has been too tame so far.

For a season which has featured aliens, people possessed by the devil, masked serial killers and grotesque creatures living in the woods, it's not surprising that they added Nazis to the mix.

Franka Potente guest starred as an inmate who insisted to Sister Jude that she is really Anne Frank, and that Dr. Arden is a Nazi war criminal (the prostitute who escaped his house did find Nazi memorabilia).

Meanwhile, Lana decided to undergo "therapy" to be "cured" of her lesbianism by Dr. Thredson. She was desperate to escape the asylum, so she could go on to what she saw as her future: writing a highly-acclaimed story about her time at the asylum, and exposing what went on there.

Dr. Thredson later promised Lana that he would let her leave the asylum with him, one way or another.

Kit and Grace grew closer, and she told him a story of how she was wrongly accused of killing her family. After the two of them were caught having sex, Sister Mary Eunice (whom Jude praised for the "improvement" in her personality – you know, since she got possessed) showed Kit documents that told the true story.

As the two were locked in solitary in adjacent rooms, Grace confessed the truth: she committed all of those murders.

We still don't know the truth about Dr. Arden, but we do know that he has already turned Shelley into one of his freaks. As "Anne" tried to escape Arden's clutches, she saw Shelley, who whispered "Kill me."

So yeah, that was disturbing. We'll see if we finally learn the truth about Dr. Arden and "Anne" on the second part next week.

What do you think of this week's twists and turns? Or was it all just twisted? Share your thoughts on video or post a comment.

    This episode was so interesting! the crazy therapy Grace had to endure to the claimed "Anne frank" character introduced. All these stories behind each person keeps me on the edge of my seat while watching because we dont know what is next to come in this mad house. I believe the Dr.Arden is the Nazi Anne describes from her past, & Grace will not be leaving anytime soon. i cannot wait for the next episode! this show is so awesome. WHERE ARE THE ALIEN
