The final "American Horror Story: Asylum" of 2012 is right around the corner, and creator Ryan Murphy has divulged a few dirty details about what's in store at Briarcliff.

Ian Mcshane terrorized the asylum as a psycho Santa on Wednesday's episode of the FX series, and Murphy promises next week's episode will be even more action-packed and will end on a cliffhanger.

"You find out what the aliens want [next week]. Also, it’s very exciting -- next week is the reappearance of Pepper!" Murphy told EW. "They bring her back with a very unusual change. That’s one of our great cliffhangers. I know Pepper is an audience favorite. And it’s the question I get asked the most: 'Where’s f—in’ Pepper?' So Pepper returns!"

Additionally, Dylan McDermott will emerge as modern day Bloody Face. McDermott has already teased his reappearance via Twitter writing, "I AM THE MODERN DAY BLOODY FACE!" along with an ominous photo, but Murphy won't give away any specifics.

"Next week, please watch the first scene featuring Dylan and a brilliant 'Silence of the Lambs' actress that I think fans of the horror genre will get a really big kick out of," Murphy told EW. "I just got a kick out of that scene for many many reasons."

"American Horror Story: Asylum" airs on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST on FX.
