I completely agree but let’s take a step back: the whole idea of AHS in general is very different. When I had first heard that the second season would have absolutely nothing to do with the first I was like, “well how is that going to work out?” Especially when it’s the same actors portraying different characters. But from one season to the next we see the same faces yet falling in love with completely different people.
In the case of Pepper the characters from Freak Show are not the characters in Asylum and that comes with incredible acting which we’ve seen time and time again. From the audiences perspective we’re all aware it’s the same person but in the perspective of the series it’s a completely different character.
We have to enter this with an open mind and hoping the development of the story persuades us and ultimately allows us to understand each character standing as its own.
