Did You Know?


In each season, there is always a "hint" as to the subject of the next season, some more subtle than others. In the kitchen, Billie is telling Violet on how they need to dislodge the spirits from the house. She tells Violet "The evil, it's a force, just like any other Violet. Pure physics. Real and powerful. Created by events. Events that unlock psychic energy into the environment where it is absorbed. Like the way a battery stores energy. You'll see it all the time in places like prisons or asylums. Negative energy feeds on traumatic pain." This is clearly a setup for season 2, AHS-Asylum. See more »


Violet sits at the kitchen table, clearly smoking Marlboro Gold 72's, looking pretty glum. Yet, when Constance enters, she pulls an American Spirit cigarette (known for the printed eagle above the filter) from the pack and lights up. See more »


Violet Harmon: It's not Utube with a U. It's Youtube. Y-o-u.

The Twin Babies
17 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Chad and Patrick are decoration the baby's room and Billy Dean teaches a spell to get rid of the gays; however it does not work as planned. Ben and Vivien arrive at the house and Ben leaves his wife in the car while he looks for Violet. However Vivien has contractions and Constance brings her into the house where the ghosts of Dr. Montgomery and two nurses are waiting for her. Ben's baby is stillborn and Tate's baby is perfect but Vivien dies. Violet confronts Tate and soon Vivien meets Violet while Constance leaves the room with the baby.

"Birth" is an episode that shows the fate of Vivien and Violet in the infamous house. The great question is where Ben will go crazy or will die in the house and stay with his family. Another question is whether Ben's baby is really dead. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Birth"
