It is revealed that Moira was shot and killed by Constance while in bed (though against her will) with Constance's husband several years previous. Moira appears to everyone as close to Constance's age, with the exception of Ben and a couple of other men. She makes a comment to Ben, "You are finally seeing things as they truly are", as she then appears to Ben as the older Moira. Everyone who has died in the house appears as the age they were when they perished...(ex: Tate is still a teenager) So how can Ben then see her as the older Moira ("as they TRULY are") when she died as a younger woman? Would this flaw not make Ben and the cop etc, be the ones "seeing things as they truly are"?? And yes, I understand she can make herself appear as she wants to be seen...But even in the scene where Ben is digging the hole to bury Hayden, Moira is watching from the window (hoping they find her remains), she is alone, no one watching, yet she still appears as the older Moira...Another case in point for validation, is the Halloween episode, the only time the dead can leave the property, Moira visits her mother in the hospital...she is the older Moira. Even when all the dead must return to Murder House after Halloween, Tate, Chad, Patrick, the nurse and college girl, those twin boys.. etc..they all were the same age as they were when they were murdered...with the exception of Moira...she returns as the older Moira.

Ask Him about Boston
13 April 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Ben and Vivien return home but do not find Violet. When someone knocks the door, Ben sees that is Hayden and he closes the door. When Vivien prepares her bath, Ben leaves the house and hits Larry, believing that there is a scheme with Hayden. Meanwhile Violet dates Tate and tells her mother that she is with her friends. Out of the blue, a group of students looking like zombies arrive and have an argument with Tate that returns to the house with Violet. However the students are waiting for Tate. Hayden confronts Vivien and threatens her with a piece of glass. When Ben arrives, she asks Vivien to ask Ben about Boston and he discloses the truth. Soon Constance tells Violet who Tate is and he learns that the students are also ghosts.

There is a great increase in the number of ghosts in "Halloween Part 2". Why are they all trapped to the murder house is still a mystery. Hayden disappearing from the security guard's car's funny. My vote is seven.
