American Horror Story: Freak Show suffered a massive security leak last week, when pages of a script were allegedly stolen from the set of the FX drama.

According to reports, an actor was reading his or her script and accidentally left some pages lying around, where somebody stole them. The thief is now trying to sell the pages to the media.

The pages are described as containing a “critical scene” in an upcoming episode that would reveal how Pepper (Naomi Grossman) found herself at Briarcliff Manor in American Horror Story: Asylum, which takes place 10 years after Freak Show. Fans have been dying to know how Freak Show and Asylum are connected, and these pages likely hold the key, meaning that any publication would result in a huge spoiler. Already fans assume that the connection will have something to do with returning actress, Lily Rabe, who recently announced she would be reprising her Asylum role, Sister Mary Eunice, on Freak Show.

Freak Show producers, 20th Century Fox TV, said in a statement, “The theft and unauthorized distribution of scripts is a very serious matter and we will take all appropriate steps necessary to vigorously protect our intellectual property.

American Horror Story: Freak Show airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on FX.
