Critic Reviews for Return to Murder House

Constance Langdon's confessional monologue was the most effective, possibly simply because it's so exciting to see Jessica Lange come back, but also because of the tragic through line.

As promised, the episode was a gift for the fans that delivered on character nostalgia, throwback show mythology and even tied up some loose ends while pushing the mysterious Apocalypse plot forward.

This episode was the directorial debut for Sarah Paulson, and I believe she did an amazing job. I really enjoyed this episode. It was nice to catch up with at least some of the ghosts in the house.

Even on the brink of being murdered, Constance still correct[s] his grammar. Reminds me of my own mother.

The long-awaited installment delivered not only the inspired, if brief, returns of Jessica Lange, Connie Britton, and Dylan McDermott, but also offered satisfying conclusions for multiple story threads that have been dangling for seven years.

But in this season, patriarchy has been flipped on its head completely, and now men are having to justify their actions to women who are in positions of power.

It's the perfect way to end the episode for Murder House fans: closure for the fan-favorites, answers to some burning questions, and most importantly, the return of AHS Queen Jessica Lange.
