Critic Consensus: Though the final impact is slight and the episode feels unnecessary, "Chapter 10" ends Roanoake on an entertainingly unique note.

I admire the effort in trying to do something different with the format; it just turned out to be a huge misfire.
This year, American Horror Story has been as big and as loud as ever. But its final, somber note, is the one that hits hardest. In the end, it really was all about Flora.
The finale unfortunately fell into the same traps and was ultimately too clever for its own good, making it a disappointing ending to what would have otherwise been a very solid season.
While American Horror Story season 6 was a horror coaster that shot to extremes of shock and gore, the finale was a Roanoke nightmare. Why this episode even had to happen remains an unsolved mystery.
It was a deeply unsettling end to the strangest season of American Horror Story yet. While Roanoke (and all its various incarnations) wasn't everyone's cup of tea, I found it legitimately creepy, often quite scary, and, in the end, incredibly moving.
