Funny and Corny Conclusion
18 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Constance is taking care of her grandson and when Ben takes the baby from her, she threatens him. The he decides to commit suicide, but Vivien stops him and asks him to leave the house since they are in danger. However, Hayden with two other ghosts hang Ben from a chandelier. Later, Marcy convinces the couple Stacey and Miguel Ramos, and their teenage son Gabriel, to buy the house. However Ben and Vivien decides to haunt the family and they leave the house. Vivien finds that her stillborn baby was indeed alive and died in the house. She takes the baby from Nora and takes care of him and lives happily with Ben, Violet and Moira. Years later, Constance finds who her grandson is.

"Afterbirth" is the last episode of "American Horror Story", with the fate of the characters. It is funny to see Ben and Vivien frightening the Ramos family to protect them. But is also corny, with a happy ending for Ben, Vivien and Violet that forget all their problems. My vote is seven.
