Three episodes into season eight, and everybody's dead. I guess AHS did give fair warning; this is the Apocalypse season, after all.

"Forbidden Fruit" is easily the best episode of the season. It picks up the pace and it actually feels like the plot starts to get moving here.

From the cold opening to the surprise at the end, "Forbidden Fruit" is one of the most impressive editorial feats of the entire series, let alone this season.

Although it feels redundant to point out how crazy any given American Horror Story episode is-I mean, aren't they all?-Wednesday's installment is certainly a contender for the What the Hell Is Going On? award.

There was a welcome supernatural lightness in those final moments... That's not to say the season's about to get exponentially better, but it was a very welcome shift from the Lazy Susan of aggravation these past few weeks have offered up.

"Forbidden Fruit" written by Manny Coto did an extraordinary job of setting up one of the very well awaited returns of iconic Coven characters.

This season of American Horror Story is probably really hard to follow if you're not a superfan of the franchise... "Forbidden Fruit" was a moment for superfans to rejoice.

With our first view of the world outside the compound as well as within "The Forbidden Fruit", it will leave many wondering if we will be seeing more of the destruction left in the wake of the bomb.
