American Horror Story Sneak Peek: Watch Neil Patrick Harris' Bloody Debut

Warning: You might never look at Neil Patrick Harris the same way again.

FX’s bloody-good promo for American Horror Story‘s winter premiere (Jan. 7, 10/9c) offers our first look at NPH’s character, Chester, the new owner of Elsa’s Freak Show — though he appears to have a special interest in Bette and/or Dot. (“We may be just off the farm, but we can tell when a man is flirting with us.” Oh, boy.)

And because this is AHS, it only takes about 30 seconds before we see Chester completely covered in blood.

The promo also previews what the final three episodes have in store for the rest of our favorite Freaks, including Jimmy, who receives a messed up proposition from Stanley.

Hit PLAY on the promo above, then drop a comment below: How do you hope Freak Show will end?
