Barkers rev up your engines. The Freak Show is over, and the incessant quote canonizing can begin.
As another season of American Horror Story closed on Wednesday, the freak fetishist became the freak. (If that meant we got to see Finn Wittrock in his skivvies, then so be it.) But Dandy Mott's downfall was just the beginning of the curiosities delivered by Elsa Mars and her band of outsiders.
Picking up short after Dandy (Wittrock) began his tyrannical rule of the side show, the anthology show's season finale was a veritable a parade of zingers and bon mots worthy of creator Ryan Murphy, starting with …

Kathy Bates is speaking out about cancer.
"I had ovarian cancer in 2003. When I went in for a scan last year they found a tumor in my left breast. I wasn't going to fool around; I had a double mastectomy, "the American Horror Story: Coven star says in the October issue of AARP The Magazine.
"Breast cancer runs like a river through my family. My mother and niece had it; my aunt died of it. Even if you test negative [for genetic mutations that predispose you to cancer] – like I did – you can't assume you're OK,"
As she ages, Bates, 65, says she wishes she wasn't getting older.

"We all enjoy putting our toe in the cold water of fear," Alfred Hitchcock once said when asked about the pleasure of being frightened.
The new trailer for American Horror Story: Coven, the third season of the series, certainly invokes that delight in fright, with a group of young witches stomping in unison to a dark rendition of the folk song "The House of the Rising Sun."
Zoe, played by Taissa Farmiga, leads the march of the student witches towards the entrance of their finishing school, set in New Orleans. Sarah Paulson greets the girls at the door, and they file in to a large, dimly-lit room adorned with a white pentagram on the ceiling.

Two familiar stars will join the casts of American Horror Story and Boardwalk Empire for the shows' new seasons.
Kathy Bates, who won an Oscar for her frightening role as Annie in the horror film Misery, will join season 3 of FX's American Horror Story alongside fellow Oscar-winner Jessica Lange, EW reports.
Bates, 64, won an Emmy Award in 2012 for her guest turn on Two and a Half Men. She also appeared on Harry's Law and The Office. Bates announced last September that she had undergone a double-mastectomy for breast cancer after surviving ovarian cancer nine years earlier.

Kathy Bates has battled cancer for the second time.
The actress, 64, who opened up in March about surviving ovarian cancer nine years ago, was diagnosed with breast cancer several weeks ago, she tells PEOPLE exclusively.
"After much consideration, I underwent a double mastectomy," the Academy Award-winning actress reveals. "Luckily, I don't have to undergo radiation or chemo. My family call me Kat because I always land on my feet and thankfully this is no exception."

Kathy Bates's dogs can't always visit the actress on set, but when they do, they do it in style.
"Stelly Bell used to go with me everywhere; she and my old dog Griffin, who passed away, had their own little Louis Vuitton bags with their names on them," the Harry's Law star tells PEOPLE. "We used to always say, 'Go Louis' and then, they would go jump in their Louis bags."
Following Griffin's death, Bates has become a mom to a furball family of three – Yorkie Stelly Bell, whose full name is Stella, Chihuahua Vladimir, and a second Yorkie named Harley. But her dearly departed pet retains a strong hold on her heart, and a spot in cinema history.
