A singular performance from Evan Peters proves so entertaining that even the most dissatisfied viewers may suddenly find themselves ready to "Drink the Kool-Aid."
Even now, it's anyone's guess how this season of AHS will end.
American Horror Story is giving viewers quite the education in the modern American cult. Evan Peters, fresh from his stint as Andy Warhol, is transformed into Marshall Applewhite, Jim Jones, and David Koresh.
The episode is at its most effective when charting the gut-wrenching effect of Kai's madness.
I'll take it, because as Ivy notes shortly before her death; strong, empowered Ally is highly preferable to the screechy, panicked version.
The best part though was watching Evan Peters somehow sell all these different leaders as people seperate from one another.
Cult has been gaining momentum in its final weeks, and Tuesday's episode was no exception.
I love the socio-political bent, and if Murphy's point is sometimes as hard to follow as Kai's, at least there's never a dull moment.
Now, nine episodes in with only two to go, it feels as though the most interesting, kinetic part of the season is just getting started. Who knows what Ally's plan is-but we can't help but wish it had been given a little more time to unfold.
One of the best things about "Drink the Kool-Aid" is how some of the most horrifying subtext is played out in the most mundane of settings.
Hoo boy, this is getting real!
In the jaw-dropping episode, Ally teams up with Ivy (Alison Pill) and Winter (Billie Lourd) to figure how to escape the cult.
Watching Evan Peters playing more flashback roles... was fun, though again it's all still very muddled as to whether or not Kai believes the crazy stuff he preaches or if he's just playing the role of a cult leader - complete with random acts of lunacy.
