After the news that just released today from creator of the hit series, American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy’s confirmation that Season 4 of the mini-series will be a period piece that is set in the 1950s, featuring a German accent by veteran Jessica Lange. As in every final arc of AHS, fans of the show are analyzing every moment and word to catch clues that snuck in to hint at the next season’s location.
Following last week’s episode that featured some peculiar additions to the show, I already had my head spinning with ideas that revolved around one subject: animal cruelty. What kicked that off? The random picture of a dog that appeared under the Google Images beside the infamous witch hunting father son only to be followed by the murder of mice placed in a magic maze being used for witchcraft. Fear not, I have proof my submission (Twitter is a reliable source in case you were wondering).
After tonight’s episode (which inspired me so much to return after a year long hiatus…New Year’s Resolutions can happen!), I couldn’t help but ensure my stamp of approval on this topic, for tonight was huge.
Opening up the night had a significant scene involving Kathy Bates’ Madame LaLaurie and her daughter in a flashback where they behead a chicken for dinner. It was drawn out, dramatic, and after the showing of the decapitation, the overuse of blood squirting out made the scene memorable to say the least. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, animal cruelty. Now may I encourage vegetarianism to forever prevent the slaughter and torture of both animals and, according to LaLaurie, human beings.
The key scene that should be most noted was after Fiona and The Axeman seemingly slept together. After showing Fiona an old picture, an eerie screech quietly fills with ambience as Fiona asks us to imagine her as a “farmer’s wife.” Get that into your head for a second.
In other news, Madame LaLaurie is a stupid cow to Marie. Coincidence? I think not!
So can anyone else hear the ring of American Horror Story: Farm Life? Perhaps Animal Farm (if copyrights do not prohibit)? We’ll soon see when we all will “Go To Hell” in next week’s semi-finale.
Any thoughts or theories of your own? Do you still believe in the possibility of the circus location? Let us know!
