Now that the chaos of Christmas is finally over, I can get back to doing the difficult, important things…like finally watching the season finale of American Horror Story.
I’m not sure how I feel about this finale episode. A lot of ground was covered and many loose ends were sort of tied up. It seemed like a bit of a mashup and a rush to finish the season. More on that later….
So douchebag Ben is all alone in the house because the ghosties don’t really want anything to do with him anymore. Vivien and Moira bond. I love Moira. Constance doesn’t want to give the baby back to Ben. Ben wants to kill himself but Vivien and Violet appear and convince him not to. Unfortunately for him, Hayden has other plans. I kind of love her too. Anywho, the family is reunited and all the interpersonal problems of their lives have disappeared in death.
Nora can’t handle motherhood so Vivien gets one of her babies back and Constance has demon baby tucked away in her house. The bigoted real estate agent manages to lure another family into purchasing the house, but the good ghosts work together to scare them away with a good old-fashioned haunting. Tate is kind of crazy…over Violet; he tries to work things out with Ben but to no avail. The now happy Harmons enjoy Christmas together with their baby and Moira, the baby’s godmother. Just goes to show that true happiness is found in death.
Cut to three years later: Constance realizes she really was meant for greatness…demonchild is meant for greatness and she is there to guide him and share her wisdom. Good thing, since he brutally murdered his babysitter.
Apparently, the creators really had to get all of the loose ends tied up all neat and shit because next season will be a completely different ballgame. New house, new haunting, new cast. I was a wee bit irritated with the happiness of the finale but I understand the kind of epilogue feel it had. I am anticipating the next season in a major way; I think this direction will keep the show fresh and exciting. However, I am going to miss Constance. She is my favorite bitch.
I just have one thing to say to Ryan Murphy and crew: Do not fuck this up.
