This third episode was by far the most outlandishly nuts yet.

Right now, my reason for viewing are the performances from Paulson, Gooding Jr., and Bassett.

I must admit, this has been fun, trying to figure out where all this is going, and if the idea was to keep people guessing and engaged, then in that case, Murphy and company have already succeeded.

[It] provides a perfect dramatic cliffhanger to leave us on; like we've reached the peak of a rollercoaster, waiting now for the inevitable descent.

American Horror Story has redeemed itself in the bloodiest, goriest, most knife-throwing, throat-slitting, flesh-burning, cannibalistic way.

There's the introduction of a new character who compensates for the camp humor missing from the series up to now, and we finally get a partial explanation for the spooky goings on in the woods.

In "Chapter 3" of American Horror Story: Roanoke, Kathy Bates is here to kick ass and eat still-beating hearts. And she's all out of hearts.

Three episodes into American Horror Story and a clear pattern of callbacks is starting to emerge. FX and its marketing may be calling this the Roanoke season, but I'm inclined to call it American Horror Story: Meta.

Needless to say, things are getting real complicated, real quick... And they didn't calm down at all this episode.

Chapter 3 is a very busy episode, yet it still manages to be completely dull, which is sad to say about an episode that features feral children, hypnotism sex, and outrageous old-timey (Irish?) accents.

This was the best installment of the season yet.

Despite still lacking in the chills department, Roanoke gave us much more than a haunted house story this week.

American Horror Story: Pig Year returns in its third week with, finally, some explanation of the colonial mythos that's been haunting the Roanoke farmhouse where Shelby, Matt, and Lee have been terrorized.
