I am officially ready to announce that this season of AHS is straight up terrible. There’s no cohesive storytelling. For a show that usually goes to a lot of trouble to set up rules, there are zero rules about anything at all. Not a single character has a discernable motivation. And yet, here I am, writing this. At least I have a bagel to keep me company.
I feel so apathetic about this show. I almost didn’t write a recap today, to be honest, because this season is turning into such a mess that I’m running out of quips. And, yes, I know that AHS is traditional the Hottest Mess of All, but this isn’t even a fun mess.
I feel like I’ve really lost track of this season of AHS, but I also understand that this series is a pretty consistent shit-show and that maybe it’ll have a better ending than Coven, which is really all I can ask for. Still, this episode felt really muddled throughout – it never seemed to totally focus, and though it had a great shock-value scene right at the end, I guess I wasn’t invested enough for it to really land. As a result, I feel like I don’t have THAT much to write about, but there was like, a ton of weird peen stuff happening in this episode, so at least we’ve got that.
