Critic reviews for Blood Bath

For a series that showcases strong, older female actresses, I'm not sure how to go about giving superlatives for this week's "Blood Bath." Good job showing Grrrl Power? Really?

When an episode is titled "Blood Bath," you kind of expect a lot. You don't necessarily expect it to be literal, though. Oh, wait. This is American Horror Story.

All in all, "Blood Bath" does what it can to bring the various storylines together under one roof (or tent, as it were), and for the most part it succeeds.

"Blood Bath" was taut, tense, and filled with big moments that changed the course of the series.

"Blood Bath" is used as a way to push our characters forward, to their final act.

When you title an episode of American Horror Story "Blood Bath," you know it's definitely figurative and you worry it might be literal. Then you see that "Blood Bath" is credited to AHS demon lord Ryan Murphy, and you know it's definitely literal.
