Ryan Murphy goes full Ryan Murphy in "Apocalypse Then," barreling past two convoluted episodes of multiverse building to deliver a satisfying, batsh--t finale that lives up to its namesake.
Whether it was batsh-- good or just plain batsh--, though, remains up for debate, but there's no denying that it was one hell of a fun ride.
As frustratingly dull as the previous two episodes had been, this episode blew them out of the water, culminating in a mind-blowingconclusion with AHS style.
The one thing I cannot get past is how Smart Sis Emily and Timothy created the Antichrist.
Episodes eight and nine of this season were lackluster at best, giving us very little plot development in abbreviated installments. But number 10, "Apocalypse Then" more than made up for it.
In an attempt to explore the storyline and keeping the audience hooked with familiar faces, it instead ended up doing the exact opposite. The plot suffered and the characters themselves left their assumed endgame.
Season eight ends as all things should: with Jessica Lange and vehicular manslaughter.
Despite all of the delicious spectacle and heavy lifting by American treasure Sarah Paulson playing multiple characters, the episode capped off season that ultimately felt a little disposable.
It was still damn good to see Marie back in action.
As many fans predicted, "Apocalypse Then" brought some familiar faces back up to help retcon the 2019 armageddon and throw the franchise's timeline into upheaval.
It's simultaneously the perfect conclusion (and a whole lot better than the previous two episodes), but one that's also guaranteed to enrage a lot of viewers.
Being the heavily-anticipated crossover season between the Murder House and Coven seasons of the show... for the most part, it delivered.
Confused? Yes. Excited for season nine? Definitely.
