As the season finale of American Horror Story: Asylum approaches - the last of the series is about to take place in 's Briarcliff setting, if the yearly reinvention is to be repeated.

Wednesday night's Continuum episode proved to be the most berserk one to date, as the story moved forward through several years to highlight Kit's () unusual family with two alien baby-mamas, as well as Jude's () descent into madness and Lana's () rise to 'prominence' as an author. But - damn it - how is it all going end?

After the show's latest episodes, I'd struggle to imagine how things could get any stranger as all characters descend into mania and brutality, but what does series creator Murphy have to say? Here he is, letting loose on Entertainment Weekly, about next week's season finale, the aptly titled Madness Ends:

I think the finale is my favorite episode we've ever done. It was directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and written by Tim Minear. I think it's even better than "I Am Anne Frank Part II", which was previously my favorite. The whole thing is done almost as a documentary with Lana current day looking back on her life and doing a 60 Minutes-esque [interview]. That plays with like 10 different time periods. It was a very ambitious script and a very ambitious shoot and Alfonso knocked it out of the park as did Tim... I don't want to give too much away. It's much more emotional than Grand Guignol. It's something that John Landgraf and I talked about at length before I wrote it. This season was so dark which I loved but I felt it was important in the finale to give a sense of kindness and peace and resolve whenever possible along with some really scary things. So it's a very very satisfying finale. I think there's not a single stone unturned. All the questions are answered and more.

Murphy also teased that any unresolved characters would return, such as ' Monsignor Timothy, though only one character would be left standing by the finale's end. Additionally, we can expect further clues to the setting of American Horror Story Season 3, which Murphy says have been dispersed throughout the last four episodes.

I may be way off, but I am thinking it could be something to do with coal mines. Definitely a lot of true horror happened there - when Monsignor was reading the paper I noticed an article out of Washington state about a coal mine. He also teased back in 2012 that he wanted to do something a "little bit more evil glamour." Could this be a lead to something?

Well, what say you? Is there any sane way for American Horror Story: Asylum to meet its ultimate end? Where do you think the third season will take us?
