Maggie Esmerelda's Death Scene American Horror Story Frea

Maggie Esmerelda was an amateur con artist who partnered herself with a man named Stanley in the early 1950s. She assisted Stanley in infiltrating Fräulein Elsa's Cabinet of Curiosities in Jupiter, Florida and helped him to procure the bodies of freaks, which they would then sell to the American Morbidity Museum.

During her time with the Freak Show, she became romantically involved with Jimmy Darling, and was present with Jimmy when Twisty the Clown and a psychopath named Dandy Mott began terrorizing people. Maggie eventually had a crisis of conscience and turned against Stanley, revealing the duo's true motives to a performer named Desiree Dupree. Maggie was brutally killed when the show's new owner, Chester Creb, forced her to perform in a magic trick wherein he actually sawed her in half on stage.
