What Are Jimmy's New Hands Made of on 'AHS: Freak Show'? Housewives Everywhere Can Rejoice!
It was a night of incredible surprises and shocking deaths on American Horror Story: Freak Show. First we learn that Dr. Arden was responsible for cutting off Elsa's legs all those years ago and then we see NPH's Chester literally saw Maggie in half, further proving that this guy's crazy factor is off the charts. So yeah, not a lot of great news to go around during "Show Stoppers." However, there was one notable silver lining in this horrifically dark cloud and that's the fact that Jimmy has a new set of hands built for him courtesy of the Axeman. I mean, Masimo.
If you recall, he's the very same man who kindly crafted Elsa's rather convincing looking fake legs back in the 1930s after that horrible snuff film ordeal. So when it comes to a quick prosthetic fix, he's the guy you want on tap. But what exactly are Jimmy's new lobster claws made of? I'm no craftsman or prosthetics expert, but if I had to venture a guess I'd say they're most definitely made of wood.
I say this because I can only assume he would want to use the same sort of materials on Jimmy that he did on Elsa. (I mean, why mess with a good thing, right?) Plus, they seemed to give off a pretty solid wooden vibe during the brief glimpse we saw of them, though if you're looking for me to pinpoint a specific type of tree that used I'm afraid I'm not your girl. (Maybe KNOTTY PINE? LOL, seriously though, I have no clue.)
But the main highlight we should all take away from this is the fact that Jimmy now has the use of some semi-functional hands. And, if given a little time, I'm sure he'll be able to get back to pleasure those housewives in no time. Just watch out for those potential splinters, ladies.
