Penultimate episode "Continuum" forces wrap-ups of too many open-ended arcs, though it still manages to entertain by throwing more wrenches into the mix.
I'm totally flummoxed and disappointed by certain aspects of last night's episode, namely the fact that Kit Walker (Evan Peters) had the unbelievable bad luck to cohabitate with two ax murderers. Ax murdering is not contagious: It is not the flu.
I didn't dislike the episode (or the aliens!) -- I just found it a surprising change of pace.
So ended the story's sixties-set narrative. Bummer.
This wasn't my favorite episode. It didn't go full-bore insane, and it was falling all over itself to try to get things wrapped up for the finale, which meant flashing forward, then back, then forward, then back again.
Kind of a skimpy penultimate episode so let's hope for an amazing finale.
We're coming into the home stretch, and Ryan Murphy is putting the pedal to the metal! Full throttle!
Say what you will about AHS, it's not a show that spins its wheels. It moves and expects you to keep moving with it.
This was one of your typical ducks-in-a-row-before-you-shoot-them-down penultimate episodes.
"Continuum" took the show in an entirely new direction with an entirely new, very well-done shift in style thanks to director Craig Zisk.
If the idea is to constantly pull the rug out from under us, then the show is over-achieving.
Johnny's monologue about his mother was one of the top moments of the season. It was crazy, but so grounded in reality. I could watch Dylan McDermott give that little diatribe over and over again.
For a lead in to the (hopefully) amazing finale, Continuum is all over the place, giving some closure to the stories we've followed all season on American Horror Story: Asylum, but still leaving a ton of questions open.
