Season 4: Ethel Darling
Season 3: Madame Delphine LaLaurie
Best known as the obsessive, dirty-bird-hating superfan in Misery (1990), Bates quickly became a Horror-verse fan favorite as the Southern slave owner with a sadistic flare for torturing her help in "Coven" (for which she deservedly won an Emmy). She returns this season in an even hairier role: "Freakshow"'s resident bearded lady Ethel Darling. We just hope Annie Wilkes approves.
