American Horror Story may not be able to satisfy its fans by toning things down, but it hit the right chord this week - for victims, for fans, and for the series itself.

Even when they think you know what's going on in American Horror Story: Cult, the show manages to throw some ridiculous twists at fans.

Of all the episodes this season, this one was the least horrific, but it was so for a horrific reason: everything in this episode was too real, was stuff that I feel like I have been desensitized to.

Obviously, the timing of the episode was too close for comfort to the tragic events in Las Vegas, so producer Ryan Murphy wisely trimmed things down a bit.

AHS would do better reverting back to the period piece settings of its earliest seasons rather than mining modern politics for vacant social satire and real-life horror gimmicks

The episode is explosive, obviously, but the subtle machinations of the making of a murderess also helps show the implosion of the political body.
