Critic Consensus: The promised surprise twist is revealed in "Chapter 6" of Roanoke, creating a solid -- and even scarier -- turn of events while splitting the season in two.
Critic reviews for Chapter 6
This twist also serves to highlight one of the major flaws from the "My Roanoke Nightmare" episodes, which were slow and repetitive as hell.
All in all, "Chapter 6" is a promising start to the back half of the season. It's too late for Season 6 to be declared a complete success, but it might be able to pull up from its nosedive.
As promised, Chapter 6 offered a massive twist, and it didn't even wait until the last 20 minutes to get crazy.
I legitimately love this reality show redux twist. Admittedly, I wasn't entirely confident that AHS could pull off this sort of mid-stream switch-up. But this episode was so much fun to watch.
It was [the] sort of "Reality TV" wrangling that gave the episode its best moments
