2: Ma Petite – Freak Show

It’s nearly time to announce who the No. 1 character is, but coming in at a very respectful second place is Ma Petite. A character who breaks the social norm of American Horror Story, by being very sweet and very kind to everyone.

Ma Petite was another of the Freaks in Elsa Mars’ show, the shortest woman in the world, she was undeniably a hit a among fans.

Unfortunately, sweet and kind does not get you very far when it comes to your survival odds in American Horror Story,  just like happy endings, as Ma Petite learned.

Smothered to death by her fellow freak, who we all thought was a big friendly giant. Her death was devastating, shocking and honestly unbelievable. It proved that the series has no limits on how fair it will go to shock us.

In a way, Ma Petitie’s death was a bit like Game of Thrones. Killing her off sent a huge message to viewers, nobody is safe, no one. Any of the characters you love can die at any second in this series.
