American Horror Story ‘s installments of Asylum and Freak Show just became even more connected as fan favorite Lily Rabe is set to appear on an upcoming episode this season.

Returning as nun Sister Mary Eunice from Asylum , her storyline will revolve around how another fan favorite Pepper, who is played by Naomi Grossman , ended up going from the freak show to Asylum ‘s titular institution, Briarcliff.

Lily will appear in the show’s 10th episode, which will also serve as the season’s big winter cliffhanger.

It’s also been announced that Neil Patrick Harris and his real-life husband David Burtka will also guest-star on the anthology series.

Harris will appear in the 11th and 12th episodes as a chameleon salesman, while Burtka will appear in the season finale (Episode 13) in what is being called a sexy storyline with Jessica Lange ’s character.

The superstar couple were originally asked to appear in the show’s first season, but they declined and were replaced by Zachary Quinto and Teddy Sears .

Tune in for the American Horror Story: Freak Show on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
