After seven years of waiting, American Horror Story finally returned to the Murder House for what might have been the best episode of Apocalypse
so far. Not only was the sixth episode directed by Ahs
powerhouse Sarah Paulson
, but it also reunited viewers with some key original characters. Connie Britton
and Dylan McDermott
returned as Vivien and Ben Harmon
, Taissa Farmiga
reappeared as Violet, and the mother of Ahs, Jessica Lange
, returned as Constance Langdon to much acclaim.
While we would have happily watched this reunion as is, "Return to Murder house" also served the purpose of solving several mysteries plaguing this season, especially the burning question of what happened to Constance, the original caretaker of our favorite Antichrist. For a quick refresher: Michael is the child of an evil spirit and a human, Tate Langdon and Viven Harmon. By his very nature, he is the essence of evil, the proclaimed Antichrist.
