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.
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 (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. See more
In the opening scene the camera pans over a stack of bills...both list Constance's address as 939 Berro Drive Los Angeles, CA. However, one lists the zip code as 90064 which would be near Santa Monica and the other lists it as 90060 which would put it right near Downtown L.A., if the street in question actually existed (it does not).
