Best. episode. of. the. season. (so far).So much exposition, so much gore, and just the right amount of campy ridiculousness thrown in. We got confirmation that Margaret was the real killer and framed Jingles (btw how cringeworthy was it when she licked the blood from the cut on his hand? ), we lost more characters (Trevor and Chef Bertie - "she's good people!"), we found out why Montana's obsessed with getting revenge on Brooke, and we got more of Xavier's ego ("Now I'll never be on the cover of TV Guide!" ). But - the one thing that made me go "um... yeah...." was Richard Ramirez doing THE MOST when he entered Montana's aerobics class - the over-the-top poses, etc. And, he must have already been the Night Stalker at that point before he killed the complainy guy in the aerobics class? If that's true, would he make such a public appearance? I dunno.... Ryan Murphy might have some 'spainin to to.I'm excited to see how this season twists, since we still have 6 eps to go and we're pretty much at what would be close to the end of a horror movie. If someone takes out Margaret the psycho (I mean, she sliced off her own damn ear and didn't even flinch?????) in the next ep, then we know we're in for a shakeup!The playlist's been updated! https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5F9yUfVecKj8UuOuwxr59p(btw, is it just me or are we getting fewer songs as of last week's episode?)
If Margaret was the one who killed those teens in the cabin back in the 1970s then why did this season start with a flashback showing Mr. Jingles doing it? It's not as if that was some character's memory or point of view, it was just presented to us as info for the audience, establishing the backstory. Assuming Margaret is telling the truth that makes the show itself an unreliable narrator, meaning nothing we see is necessarily true. I find that rather unsettling, and not in an interesting way. It just feels like the show is jerking us around.On another note, this has to be the gayest show on TV (not a criticism - just an observation). Man-aerobics? Was there a single straight male in that class? Boy, Ryan Murphy sure does like his gay boys doesn't he?
You're doing AHS wrong. You're not supposed to think about or question anything about the show because it falls apart immediately. They're basically just full-on parody now and in it for the lols.
