These violent delights have violent ends, and American Horror Story: Roanoke is reveling in them.
We’re not sure if this is the most violent season of American Horror Story, but Ryan Murphy was not lying when he said it was “fucked up.” It is absolutely that, and we’re not sure if we love it or need to curl in a ball for a while to recover. Maybe both?
There was so much gore and violence in tonight’s episode, we can’t think of another AHS season that even comes close. Sure, there have been plenty of murders in the past seasons, but Roanoke is one bloodbath after the next.
If you’re a fan of The Walking Dead too, then you’re probably feeling as brutalized by television this week as I am. Don’t worry; we wouldn’t dare dream of ruining that Season 7 premiere episode, but we’re still reeling. Paired with tonight’s episode of American Horror Story, we think we need a month or two to fully recover from the trauma. Can a TV show give you PTSD? Because we might need some counseling.
We can’t even guess how this season of American Horror Story is going to end. No one in that house seems fit to actually stop the Butcher. If anything, they’ll join her killing spree with glee at this point. And since it seems that no one ever leaves once they enter that house, we’re assuming they’ll all be dead really soon. We lost a good many of them tonight as it is.
While the end of this season is still a mystery, one thing we do know: The fucked up-ness of this season has only just begun. Now that Finn Wittrock’s character has finally been revealed as part of the cannibal hillbilly Polk family, there is no end to the potential for disturbing scenes ahead.
Despite knowing this, I’ll still be tuning in. Apparently, I’m a glutton for punishment, but I need to know what will happen. I also really need to know if Matt Bomer will be appearing as the real Edward Mott or the Pigman this season. Maybe both?
What are your theories about where AHS: Roanoke is headed at the end of this season?
