American Horror Story is filmed beautifully, has an excellent cast of both younger and older actors (Jessica Lange, Taissa Farmiga) and continuously surprises fans week-to-week. The problem is, almost all the main characters are dead. Connie Britton’s caring mother character just entered the netherworld after giving birth to at least one ghost baby.
I’m not even kidding, she had two babies and then she died. As far as I can tell, Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott) and Constance Langdon (Lange) are the only two living characters. Oh, and the burn victim who walks like one of the wicked witch’s winged monkey slaves.
I finally thought of a way to make this show come together, an ending that is very probable. Okay, here goes…McDermott’s dodo dad/untalented therapist routine (I think he JUST realized that the house is haunted in the recent episode) finally becomes undead.
In the finale a new family moves into the Alfred F. Rosenheim Mansion, as it’s known in real life, and the Harmon family plus all the other “residents” are shown circling the new tenants, examining them, plotting ways to be rid of them, thus setting up all of season two.
[The season finale airs this Wednesday, December 21st. Wait and see]
