Next week’s American Horror Story episode, appropriately titled “Rubber Man,” reveals pretty much everything about the infamous character (and EW cover star). Before the opening credits, viewers will know who’s behind that rubber mask, and lemme tell ya it’s a doozy. The wild episode also reveals why Rubber Man has impregnated Vivien as well as the origins of his suit. In this exclusive clip, Zachary Quinto’s Chad goes shopping for some fetish gear to spice up his love life with estranged boyfriend Patrick (Teddy Sears). His purchase will be familiar to fans of American Horror Story, but don’t worry spoiler phobes: This clip doesn’t necessarily reveal Rubber Man’s identity. (Hint: things get even more twisted once he brings the suit home.)  Watch below:
