"Piggy Piggy" contains more good than bad, but it also has a lot of scenes that require me to take a wait-and-see approach.
Our awful God-like knowledge of the horror that looms makes witnessing it actually happen all the more disturbing. We don't want to watch. Except we want to watch, too.
It's a (very literal!) come-to-Jesus episode: a lot of satisfying moments and the usual gazebo-full of loose plot threads.
The whole thing turned into Twilight with ghosts, and I remembered I was watching a show where everybody's primary motivation is what will get Ryan Murphy to stand up from his chair and write something in big letters on a dry-erase board.
American Horror Story isn't as tense or weird as it usually is this episode, but there's a weird emotional resonance to the show and its characters that wasn't evident from the show's beginning.
There were some genuine, fun chills with that little side story, which introduced us to an in-show "legend" called Piggy Man; a psycho killer who comes about via typical urban legend transport, the bathroom mirror.
Bottom line? I have absolutely no idea what is happening on American Horror Story and I love every moment of it.
