Critic Reviews for Afterbirth

It's been fun folks. We laughed. We cried. We watched Connie Britton eat brains or saw Ben Harmon get laid more than any man that annoying should.

We got, for good or for ill, a complete story this season, from beginning to end. Very few shows manage to do that, especially in their inaugural season.

Jessica Lange kicked this episode/season/show's entire ass from top to bottom, and her final episode was typically chill-inducing.

"Afterbirth" focused on the afterlife this week, as American Horror Story wrapped up an enjoyable, scary, bizarre first season with a relatively calm finale.

And so ends season one of American Horror Story! I gotta admit, this last episode was pretty awesome.

I enjoyed this finale a lot, but I'm still not sure if it fully worked. If that makes any sense.

Congratulations to you guys who called the fight between good and evil and the Harmons being dead and on and on.

"Now what am I going to do with you?" and the credits roll. Phew!

This week's installment, the season finale, is more of a denouement, in which most of the loose ends of this season are tied up while the table is set for season two.

"Afterbirth," the season finale of American Horror Story and possibly the series finale for Ben, Vivien and Violet Harmon, left me in limbo. My opinion pings between cool admiration and hot disappointment.
