Script pages for upcoming episodes of American Horror Story: Freak Show have been stolen!

As a total spoiler-phobic this freaked me out, but then I realized something that all attentive American Horror Story fans will know: we've been told about what happens in that leaked part already!

TMZ reports:

It's only one page but it is hugely important. Without revealing specifics, we can tell you it involves Pepper the pinhead and a scene that reveals how she ended up in the Briarcliff Manor during Season 2, Asylum.
Pepper & Mary Eunice return - we know that already!
Pepper & Mary Eunice return - we know that already!

In case you missed the previous news, we were told back in October that Asylum's Sister Mary Eunice will return, and her arrival will explain how Pepper wound up at Briarcliff Asylum - check the story here.

So, what do we take from this? Someone thought they were being clever stealing a page of the Freak Show script... but I guess the joke's on them.

Check out some other cases of shows and movies rising above an unauthorized leak...

Breaking Bad

New Mexico local Xavier Macafee was arrested on suspicion of breaking into Bryan Cranston's car and stealing the script to one of the very last episodes of Breaking Bad! Fortunately, the leak was contained when the thief was apprehended.


The Avengers

A whole year before the long awaited Avengers Assemble movie was due to hit cinemas, an anonymous party contacted several movie sites trying to sell what they claimed was a full printed copy of Group Hug (a production title Joss & co. had used for The Avengers).

However, the moral of the story is: Don't F*** With Marvel and Disney. The film giants took it super seriously and came down on the thief like a ton of bricks before a major leak could take place.


Scream 2

OK, so this was before the internet as we know it today, but Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson's swiftly written sequel to the original Scream movie leaked online, prompting several rewrites. Insane fact: four people were originally going to have been behind the killings in Scream 2! Who knows, maybe the leak even got us a better movie...


What do you think about leaked scripts? Not a big deal or a massive worry for movie makers and fans? Let us know your thoughts below!
