More questions are raised than answered in "Great Again" which may divide viewers among party lines -- but at least it's better than most of the AHS finales that came before.
Often dulled by a convoluted plot and violence that was either too tame or unimaginatively blunt, this is far from the razor's edge of socio-political commentary.
Regardless of how you voted in 2016, you've gotta be reasonably satisfied with the outcome of this one.
The finale ends on an unmistakably cathartic note.
But this rather strong season was different, and so it necessitated a different kind of ending. It's less of a fright-fest than it is a fantasy.
American Horror Story: Cult has been one of the twistier seasons of the show, and it saves one of the biggest bombshells for last.
I wouldn't go so far as to call it shocking but it's a nice enough cherry on a very weird season.
Paired with the serious insanity of real life, it just wasn't very fun to watch, and it was just kind of annoying.
Cult continued with Kai's boring endgame misogyny, and turned everything into a screaming showdown between him and Ally as they verbally volleyed tired memes and platitudes, undercutting some of the more interesting ideas that the season began with.
Sadly, the finale of Cult, "Great Again," did nothing to turn the season around and instead left viewers with the question, what the heck was the point of all that?
The season finale of American Horror Story: Cult was underwhelming. It was supremely predictable, and frankly, didn't have a lot of action. And in the end, nothing was really "solved."
Finally, after several dubiously plotted and questionably executed season finales in a row, American Horror Story: Cult managed to stick the landing, with an ending that was as solid as the best of the series.
I have to applaud Ryan Murphy and the writers for creating a deeply complicated and unpredictable character like Ally.
