Lily Rabe has returned to American Horror Story, and this time it's in the form of serial killer Aileen Wournos. Wournos was portrayed in the 2003 film Monster by Charlize Theron. Wournos was put to death in 2002 at the Florida State Prison for the murders of seven men between 1989 and 1980.

MTV reports that this one episode with Lily Rabe as Wournos may be all fans get. She has already checked out of the "Hotel."

In her role as Aileen Wournos, Lily Rabe didn't get the benefit of expert costuming like that of Charlize Theron in the film. In fact, one source calls the costume and makeup Rabe were "cheesy."

Lily Rabe's character seduced a drunken John, despite the cheesy get-up, and bound him. When he escaped, he went straight to her I.D. and learned she was exactly who she claimed to be.

An aside: Did Lyly Rabe feel a bit silly playing a dead serial killer who carries I.D.?

MTV is begging American Horror Story for more Lily Rabe. Do you concur? Would her presence add lots to the upcoming episodes this season?
