Storyline

A flashback to 1984 shows young Tate's first encounter with ghosts in the basement. In the present day, Tate tells Nora Montgomery that she can't have one of Vivien's babies. Several of the ghosts have their eye on Vivien's twins and Constance faces off against Chad. She suggests that she keep her grandchild while he take Ben's child but Chad insists he wants both children. Violet tries a spell to get rid of some of the ghosts. After Ben collects her from the hospital, Vivien goes into labor at the house but only one child survives. Violet learns who fathered one of her mother's babies. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

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 (Sarah Paulson) is telling Violet (Taissa Farmiga) 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.

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Violet Harmon: I used to think you were like me. You were attracted to the darkness. But, Tate you are the darkness.

Another Bad One
2 January 2014 | by artpfSee all my reviews

There is no logic to this show and events that happen in previous shows are not continued correctly in subsequent episodes.

This one we see Tate's first encounter with the house.

Everybody is having a party.

Hard to believe there's room the house is so full.

Gay Spock is back.

And Lange wants them gone.

Eventually after unbearable exposition, the baby comes.

Big whoop.

I have to say that the writing sucks on this show.

I think we continue to watch it because it's so freaking cheesy and mindless.

Don'r expect to be frightened in the slightest.
