Big questions this week, and big answers.
I happen to love "messy" and "sprawling," and I can roll with the crazy storytelling turns, because they keep nourishing the show with rich themes and outrageous fun.
There's not really a character arc here so much as an actor just hitting a series of marks laid out with masking tape.
Trying to tell a haunted house story over an entire television season doesn't even seem to make much sense on the face of it, let alone trying to continue the story over several seasons.
Never have sex with a man in a rubber suit unless you are 100% sure of his identity. Remember that, kids.
Although still a good episode, it wasn't as interesting or fast paced as the last few have been.
I liked the whole "Room of Tears" tale (which is an actual room) that Billie told to Constance, but I'm still left wondering if the inclusion of Rosemary's Baby-type elements on this show will be a welcome fit..
Sure, we have a fairly predictable central arc, but the way the writers weave real life celebrity murders and pseudo-history into the narrative makes each episode enjoyable and unique.
American Horror Story is one of the weirdest, most wonderful shows on television. It's not going to make you smarter, but you'll have a great time being dumb right alongside the Harmons.
The episode was mostly fun (although absurdly written as ever) and action packed, with plenty of Glascow grins, gore, sex, and hilariously overwrought lines from Lange and Frances Conroy as Moira.
