Want a hint on the storyline for season three of “American Horror Story?”

You’ll have to work for it. Series creator Ryan Murphy told Entertainment Weekly that the newest episode of the FX hit features a hidden clue about the upcoming installment of the show.

“It’s not done like it was last year,” he told the publication. “It’s a different kind of clue. You really have to be quick and watch. I made sure to put it in there for the fans because I know people loved that last year, figuring it out.”

Last year, Ryan Murphy told audiences a clue to the plot of season 2 of American Horror Story was hidden in episode 11, called “Birth.” Indeed, Sarah Paulson’s psychic Billie Dean delivered a speech about the evil energy that is generated by places like prisons and asylums. Of course, this season of the show takes place in an asylum.
