Cult's penultimate episode manages to squeeze out a juicy twist and give Ally some much needed agency.
That can't be good for anybody near [Kai].
Leave it to American Horror Story to throw a giant twist into the mix on Election Night. In the penultimate episode of this season, the convoluted conspiracy behind the show's titular cult peeled back to reveal a whole new layer of intrigue - or is it?
It seems kind of fitting that the penultimate episode of AHS: Cult, a season that seemed less like an echo or reflection of the 2016 election and more like a piece obsessed with it, aired on Election Day 2017.
Speaking of Kai's overzealousness...Evan Peters had quite an episode, balancing his Manson portrayal with Kai's impending breaking point.
Cult sputtered and stalled here right at the end of the season, with one more episode to go, as Kai's story became overly murky and his motivations difficult to track.
I've actually found Ally's gradual transformation from sobbing mess to certified badass to be well-explained and extremely satisfying. But the idea that she has fully turned to the dark side, and isn't just playing a long con with Kai, is most intriguing.
Whatever the case, this season has been one wild ride, that's for sure. I'd have to say it's my favorite since "Coven" on the whole, and arguably the most cohesive, "Roanoke" notwithstanding.
If nothing else, this episode convinced me that Butte, Montana, is the scariest place on earth.
It's really difficult to root for any of the characters by now, as they've all played a hand in their own misery. One thing is for sure: this close to the end, we're unlikely to see any kind of meaningful sociopolitical commentary based on the theme.
We're almost to the end of American Horror Story: Cult and the politically-themed season has become more unpredictable than ever. Tuesday's penultimate episode delivered a jaw-dropping twist.
Things really got out of hand.
As usual, Tuesday's installment of American Horror Story came filled with twists and turns and, owing to this date's specific special occasion-the almost-anniversary of the 2016 presidential election.
