Storyline

After their home invasion, Vivien insists that they move out but their finances are such that there's no possibility of moving into a new place unless they can recoup what they've paid out. Vivien soon learns that selling isn't going to be easy given the long history of murders which go back to 1922 when an abortionist and his wife lived there. Ben is having blackouts, waking up in the backyard and is shocked when his ex-girlfriend from Boston shows up. Larry Harvey gives him a hand. Vivien gets an interesting visitor from the past, though she doesn't realize who the woman is. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

This episode promulgates a longstanding but totally unfounded urban legend that the actor Sal Mineo was killed by a man he had tried to pick up for sex. In fact, the man who confessed to and was tried and convicted for stabbing Mineo had been a pizza deliveryman who killed Mineo while trying to rob him. The actual murderer had no idea who Mineo was, either in a short-term sexual encounter sense or in a larger awareness of his celebrity. Also, Mineo was only stabbed once (not the multiple times shown in this episode), though the stab was in his heart. See more »

Constance: [hands Moira a piece of the Harmons' silverware] Do me a favor and polish this up before I take it, won't you? It's cruddy with corrosion, and do you know why? Because you *are* a shitty maid.

A Frankenstein Complex
31 December 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Vivien decides to sell their house, but the family can not afford to move to another place since they are broken. She discovers the bloody story of the house built by the insane scientist Charles to his wife Nora.

Meanwhile Ben, who is having several blackouts, is visited by his former affair Hayden McClaine that tells him that she will not abort their child and she will move to Los Angeles, expecting that Ben pays for her expenses. Ben's new patient, Sally Freeman, is missing and a detective is seeking her out.

Violet presses her mother to keep the house. Hayden comes to the house and presses Ben, telling him that she will tell Vivien about their affair. Out of the blue, the insane Larry Harvey kills Hayden and buries her in the backyard of the house.

"Murder House" is a great episode of "American Horror Story", where there are finally situations that will change the lives of Ben and Vivien. The difficulty to sell the house brings a weird guest and the fate of Hayden will probably bring problems to Ben. My vote is seven.
