Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

Pepper, played by Naomi Grossman, from Asylum returns for Freak Show. She is shown in the beginning of s2 ep1 (American Horror Story: Welcome to Briarcliff (2012)) outside of the Asylum and Sister Mary Eunice's character (Lily Rabe) mentions that "Pepper is not harmless - she drowned her sister's baby and cut off it's ears" in s4 Freakshow Pepper is put in the Aslyum by being framed by her real life sister for doing the same. These events lead us to believe Freakshow (s4) happened before Asylum (s2).
