Here’s a snippet:

In another interview with TVLine, Britton talks about being coached by Jessica Lange, ghost couture, what’s next for Britton, whether it be with American Horror Story or not. She also had this to say about her on-screen baby:
TVLINE | What did you give birth to? We didn’t see its face. Tell me!
BRITTON | No. Hell no. [Laughs] I’m not ruining it for people. I’m not telling you what I gave birth to. If they didn’t show you in the episode, I’m definitely not telling you. It will all be revealed [in this week’s finale].
Do I need any more reasons to watch the finale on Wednesday night? No. Do you? You do? Just one more? Fine.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, creator and writer, Ryan Murphy had this to say about the finale:
You do see that baby quite heavily [in the finale]. I think the finale has, to me, the most shocking scene we’ve ever done. Every time I edit it, I literally have to cover my eyes. The finale really does have a couple shockers in it that I think people will love.
COME ON. I DARE YOU NOT TO WATCH.
The finale of American Horror Story, “After Birth,” airs on FX, Wednesday at 10 e/p.
