Critic Consensus: "Chapter 9" gruesomely dismisses more characters while presenting the welcome return of another American Horror Story veteran and preparing viewers for a twisty finale.
Critic reviews for Chapter 9
If there's one thing the back half of Roanoke has made abundantly clear: If you actively seek fame, you will be killed in the worst way possible.
Lee's survival makes next week's episode far more interesting than I expected. After all, it was only last week that she confessed to having killed her husband, and the whole reason this Return to Roanoke project exists was to make that confession happen.
With only one episode left, it was about time we finally saw the highly anticipated appearence of another AHS vet, Taissa Farmiga (Murder House, Coven).
I predicted that Lee would end up being the sole survivor of the second part of this season of American Horror Story, and that - as a suspected murderer already -... Well, I was somewhat right!
It looks like Murphy might not be done burning down the pillars of modern culture yet-and cable news is next on the chopping block.
