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.
It's a weird thing to say about American Horror Story, but I just don't think there is enough plot this year.
"Chapter 9" is a solid episode of American Horror Story's most meaningful and consistent season -- and by "solid," I mean strongly told, startling, and filled with slithering entrails and smoking corpses.
We were promised one survivor would emerge from the trenches of the horror house at Roanoke, and lo, that person has been revealed in tonight's penultimate chapter of American Horror Story: Roanoke. It's...not who you thought it would be.
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.
As expected -- not every member of this quartet made it out of this week's episode alive.
This episode pretty much takes everything grisly that has happened (so far) in Season 6 and threw it into the bonfire of one fiery, delirious, and downright ghastly ritual sacrifice that makes Freddie Krueger look like Santa Claus.
"Chapter 9" was one of the better installments this year. Adding the new characters was a good way to up the body count, but I can't wait to find out how the whole thing ends.
