Starting with a bang and ending with a bang, this week’s American Horror Story might prove to be the most controversial episode of a season that has played pretty fast-and-loose with weighty issues like race and gender. How’d it do? Let’s dig in!

In 1991, Wee Hank goes hunting with his pappy in Chattahoochee. (Which, coincidentally, is the fastest way to Gettoknowahoochee.) They’ve been hunters for generations, and this is Hank’s first hunt – and when pops flushes their prey out of the brush… it’s Natasha Lyonne. Or at least someone who is clearly a fan of her work and/or hair. She’s a witch, and she pleads for mercy from young Hank – and then tries to fry him with her firestarter spirit fingers. Pops gets his hands burned and shoots her:  “No Mercy – never forget what they are.”
