When American Horror Story ended last year, the most rampant complaint from fans had to do with what happened after the credits ran. To the viewer, there were so many open roads left to go down regarding the future of the Harmon family as they navigated the ghostly social stature of Murder House as well as whatever happened to Constance and baby Michael—the supposed anti-Christ. With the announcement that American Horror Story would be an anthology series following different characters in a different story each season, it became clear that these were questions that would hang in the ether forever. So this time, Ryan Murphy and co. went out of their way to make sure that no loose end would ensnare the further speculation of the fans of the Asylum arc. In doing so, they created a poignant, full-circle, and slightly disappointing final chapter to the tale of Briarcliff and everyone whose lives were tarnished by association with it.

One of this season’s most anticipated new series debuted tonight with an audacious, bloody, and instantly intriguing first installment that told the age-old story of good vs evil but did so with a twist that could only come from the age of social media. In fact it’s this concept that’s going to keep viewers glued to the screen for the next fourteen consecutive weeks—The Following will have no repeats or breaks which is the way all serialized shows should air. It essentially breaks down like so: what happens when a charismatic and diabolical famous serial killer uses his influence to indoctrinate his fans or ‘followers’ into enacting a series of acts on his behalf?

If I present the episode like that then it won’t seem as unbearable as most of it was. That’s a trick I learned from Mr. Gold actually—telling a story the way that makes things suit your purposes even if it’s not entirely true.
This week on Revenge we learned that if you’re going to spend a million dollars on wine, you should probably taste it first.

With only three episodes left after tonight, American Horror Story used its tenth episode of the Asylum arc to start putting a bow on storylines that have progressed through the season. Two major characters died, the power shifts were evident all around in the dynamic between characters whose stories have placed them together, and we all got the chance to see what would happen if the sensibilities of AHS met up with the song and dance numbers of Ryan Murphy’s other creation Glee, and had a plucky choreographed murder baby.
Don't worry Kit Walker (and thereby Evan Peters) fans, we're pretty sure it's not him.
