Spoilers for American Horror Story: Season 6

Last week on American Horror Story, the cast was thinned even more. After smashing her husband’s head in a Negan-esque scene, Shelby (Lily Rabe) committed suicide in front of Dominic (Cuba Gooding Jr). Lee (Adina Porter), Audrey (Sarah Paulson), and Monet (Angela Bassett) somehow escaped the Polk family, despite Lee losing an ear and plenty of flesh, and Audrey down a tooth. They murdered Momma and Baby Boy Polk on their way out, unfortunately leaving behind video evidence. Monet was lost in the woods, and when Lee and Audrey get back to the house and find Shelby’s body, they kick Dominic out right into the grasp of Piggy Man and soon, we’re down one more. We know only one person from the spinoff, Return to Roanoke: Three Days in Hell survives and we’re running out of candidates. Just then Dylan (Wes Bentley) showed up dressed as Piggy Man.

Spoilers for this week’s AHS: Roanoke below.

Spoilers for American Horror Story: Season 6

How in hell are they going to top last week?! Last week, American Horror Story put The Walking Dead on notice: you do NOT own the rights to shock and awe horror television. First there was rogue Agnes (Kathy Bates). Gone full psycho after being left off the reality-based show “3 Days in Hell: Return to Roanoke,” Agnes, still playing The Butcher, carved her way through the cast and crew, including Sidney James (Cheyenne Jackson), the producer who put everything together. Agnes also stabbed Shelby (Lily Rabe) and gave chase to Audrey (Sarah Paulson), Monet (Angela Bassett), and Lee (Adina Porter) into the woods. Back at the house after Matt (Andre Holland) went off for possessed witch sex, Shelby bashed his brains in Negan-style and now her and Dominic (Cuba Gooding Jr) are faced with the real ghosts of Roanoke coming for them on the blood moon. Their first victim: Agnes, who meets the real Butcher.

Spoilers for American Horror Story: Season 6

Last week, the creators of American Horror Story flipped the script in a way rarely, if ever, done before in television history. For five episodes of Season 6 we watched “My Roanoke Nightmare” showing the re-enactments of the Miller family and their harrowing ordeal in a haunted North Carolina colonial mansion. Actors Audrey (Sarah Paulson) and Dominic (Cuba Gooding Jr.) played the roles of Shelby (Lily Rabe) and Matt (Andre Holland), and they were stalked by vengeance-seeking ghosts led The Butcher, portrayed by Agnes Mary Winstead (Kathy Bates). That story we discovered was actually the highest TV show of the year and now producers want a sequel. So director Sidney James (Cheyenne Jackson) has the perfect pitch, “Return To Roanoke: 3 Days In Hell,” where the real characters and the actors who played them come together “Big Brother” style in a haunted reality show. Of course staging the show at a real haunted house does not end well. We are informed by graphic that only one person survives the ordeal and everything recorded is found footage. Already one of the new cast was killed as Rory (Evan Peters) was murdered by the nurse ghosts, fulfilling the “R” for their MURDER wall”¦

Spoilers for American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare

Throughout the first half of season 6 of American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare, we followed the Millers, Matt (Andre Holland) and Shelby (Lily Rabe) telling the cameras their story. Their colonial home in North Carolina was haunted by the first settlers of the Roanoke colony, led by The Butcher, Thomasin White (Kathy Bates). Thomasin, with the help of a witch (Lady Gaga) slaughtered her entire clan and family and have been returning from the dead every blood moon to rid people from their ancestral land. The series, done with “dramatic re-enactments” showed the Miller’s struggle to survive with Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sarah Paulson acting as the Millers.

Spoilers for American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare

What else can they possibly throw at the Miller family? Attacks by locals, pig men, a kidnapped niece, feral kids, an evil ghost clan from the first colony, witch sex!!! And poor Cricket (Leslie Jordan) ended up getting disemboweled. Matt (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and Shelby (Sarah Paulson) are now face to face with the Thomasin White aka The Butcher (Kathy Bates) and her clan of ghost colonists ready to once again rid their land of the intruders. Of course, since this season is done through “dramatic re-enactments,” none of the tension we are seeing is actually happening. We get the real Matt and Shelby (Andre Holland and Lily Rabe) giving narration throughout. It speaks so much to the creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan that despite this they maintain in a crazy amount of legit scares and utter creepiness.
