"American Horror Story" returned in a big way for the sixth season of the FX original, and it seems co-creator Ryan Murphy has big plans for the future. Shit got good! The last multimedia blitz comes by way of a 24-hour news coverage from various networks, finally landing on Lana Winters at home in bed recovering from her attack. With that in mind, the lawyers chalked up her testimony as untrustworthy, and indicated that Flora was imagining her friend Priscilla. In the promo for episode 10, Lana is seen interviewing sole survivor Lee (Adina Porter) for a talk show. First, we catch up with Lee and the rest of the "My Roanoke Nightmare" cast at a Paley Center event. Nonetheless, a teaser for the finale episode shows journalist Lana Winters from season two "Asylum, ' also played by Paulson, being featured in an interview with Lee".
The next segment is a documentary about the trial of Lee Harris.
In its wake, she faces lawsuits for all the folks she killed in season 2 (including the Polks, Audrey, and Monet, whose sister sits in court every day) but miraculously manages to get off, aided by the media circus, a jury sympathetic with her extreme duress and various cannibal-related stresses, and the defense team's brilliant albeit ridiculous hallucinogenic marijuana angle. Lee was again cleared of all murder charges, but in the end completely destroyed her relationship with her daughter.
Final Thoughts: Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are just the ballsiest showrunners on TV. But with characters coming back from the dead at a rapid rate and the Seven Wonders plot being rather uninteresting, there wasn't much impact as the season moved along and was ultimately the first in a line of seasons that started off strong but ultimately petered out towards the end. Also, the Roanoke mansion could also pop up again.
Will Cricket, Elias, Rory, Matt, Dominic, Agnes, Shelby, and Sidney reappear as apparitions in the finale? "Next year, we will be going back to some Freak Show characters, deeper histories, and myhthologies". The fans are fawning all over the cast, cheering at everything they say and the actors are trying to take as much of the spotlight as possible. Sidney is asking Lee about an incident that had occurred at the house. Lana Winters was a reporter who was wrongly committed to Briarcliff Asylum after attempting to go undercover to research a serial killer. Ever since Murphy disclosed that, the AHS fans have hoped that Jessica Lange would pop in for a guest appearance.
Flora wants to stay behind as a ghost for Priscilla, to protect her from the butcher, but Lee won't allow her daughter to die.
Lee is described as "equally reviled and celebrated; one of the most provocative and polarizing figures of our time".
It could be some time before we find any significance to the ocean teaser, but is open water (or an island) the next uncharted destination for American Horror Story Season 7? More than ever, this is the season that American Horror Story absolutely needed to have, and I truly can not wait to see what Ryan Murphy has up his sleeve for next year. It's hard to care for those we've only just met.
As for the upcoming season's theme - further exploring the lives of Freak Show characters - it has the potential to go horrendously wrong. It Won't Be A Murder HouseCoven Crossover American Horror Story showrunners promised a Murder House and Coven crossover, but it won't be during Season 7. Just because she wasn't the best mother didn't mean she couldn't do the right thing for Flora when it mattered most.
