Kathy and I are spending this season co-blogging American Horror Story. Her comments are in purple and mine are in black.
At first I thought I was watching the wrong show. It felt different from the other cold open. The inclusion of a serial killer obviously fits in with the show in general, and I am curious to how he’ll fit into the witches story. Hahah.. “Why should we do anything to appease this axeman?” “Because he kills women with an axe” Yeah, that’ll do it. Also, he seems obsessed with jazz music.
First an aside: this is episode six; we’re halfway through the series.
This guy is so creepy. “I am not a human being, but a spirit. A fell demon from the depths of hell…when I see fit, I shall come again and claim other victims.”
Ooooh. That’s HOW he ties into the witches. Interesting. I am glad his story ties in right away. Just an aside…it’s ironic that she asked him to walk her home because she’s nervous about the Axeman.
Good thing serial killers don’t kill people they know. :) OMG, witches get a little stabby. Fun fact: the one with the tarot cards is Meryl Streep’s daughter!
Considering the name of the episode, I am going to make a prediction that we see him again. :)
We need more Axeman! Sure he’s creepy, but…jazz!
Zoe is SMART. She’s also determined. I get it though. If I was a part of a group where our numbers kept going down I would want to find out what was going on too. She thinks Madison wants them to find her….pretty sure Madison doesn’t want anything. I have a feeling they’ll find her though.
You may want to keep that gun. Just in case.
Queenie is Ms Knowledge when it comes to Ouija boards. I used them in highschool, but I am guessing nothing good is going to come out of this. As predicted…The axeman is attempting contact.
Yeah, really. You don’t want to become spirit pen pals with Axeman. Totally agree with Queenie.
So is everyone just getting new powers? Pretty sure that is 3 now right? Fiona (this episode), Zoe and Cordelia (last episode). Fiona is lonely….awww. I would feel bad for her, except she kills people.
I do feel for her. And this new power is weird.
These girls are research pros. They’ve figured out the axeman’s entire history in less than 10 mins. I am impressed. I am in agreement with Queenie. NO CONTACTING OF THE EVIL SERIAL KILLER. You are witches, bad things will happen (so of course Zoe is going to do it on her own). I may have to revoke her Smart Awards. She’s not making good life choices right now. Also, ew. Madison.
Totally Team Queenie. Literally no good can come of this.
Wait, is Nan hearing him? How did she know he thought they were the earlier witches?
Haha, Nan! I don’t have a fansite either. :)
Ew ew ew ew ew ew hello, Madison. Hello, Spaulding.
I just had a thought about Cordelia’s hubby. What if he is a witch hunter, and the women he’s been sleeping with and killing are witches? I have a feeling that is what is going to happen. Also, I love Cordelia calling him out on his lies and cheating. Go, Cordelia. I love that she is not putting up with his pathetic attempts to sweep it under the rug (she’s also kind of hilarious). This new power is going to be all kind of awkward.
Oh, good idea! I love Cordelia here, too. Always, but especially here. And yay Fiona. :) Ooh, so she knows about Myrtle. And she knows Myrtle didn’t do it. I wonder how long it’ll take before she knows Fiona knows that, too.
This is the episode of confrontations obviously (also, these girls are a little sadistic). Spaulding is revolting. Very revolting. He’s also a liar. Queenie’s powers once again come in handy. I get why they are angry, they think he killed their friend (because he admitted it),, but do they seem extremely eager to commit murder to you? Just a bit.
Oh God shut up creepy butler! And yes, they are totally murder-happy, just like most of the witches we’ve seen. Except for Cordelia, that we know of.
FRAKENKYLE!!!!!!!!!!! He went back to Misty. He seems to like her, or at least feel safe with her. Kyle obviously has issues being touched. It’s too bad he can’t verbalize more. Oh no, Kyle broke her music. He’s dangerous, and at this point I am pretty convinced he would have been better off staying dead. Zoe to the rescue. Kyle seems happy to see her, and she’s going to take both of them back to the witch school I bet. I laughed when Misty said “He broke Stevie”.
Oh, hey, Kyle! Nice to see you. Yeah, Kyle should’ve definitely stayed dead.
Oh shady husband, why are you sneaking around going to see Marie.
No good reason, that’s for sure.
Ah, so that’s why Zoe went to grab Misty. Misty really doesn’t want to bring back Madison, but she’s going to do it. I wonder if Madison and Kyle will connect now (if so, Poor Zoe because she obviously likes Kyle, and Kyle seems into her…as much as he can be). OMG! It’s working. I didn’t really expect to see Madison alive again. I guess I should never consider anyone dead on this show. Madison is just having rough time of it.
Oh, good idea. Because bringing people back is working so well. Didn’t you read/see Pet Sematary? The Monkey’s Paw? Several Buffy episodes? Sometimes dead is better.
Oh, honey, no. You need a shower.
So Cordelia’s hubby thinks this whole thing is Marie faults . He’s been killing SALEM descendants only? This is obviously some war and he’s some kind of assassin witch hunter I am guessing. Oh, that red haired girl Cordelia’s hubby slept with BURNT HER EX ALIVE! Insane. He killed 9 in 3 years. Their deal didn’t include him falling in love with Cordelia, Marie thinks he did. I do not think he did. He is supposed to behead all the witches in the school.
I love Marie.
Oh my goodness, redhead. Look at you!
I don’t think he loves her, either.
What? No beheadings!
I feel bad for Kyle. Nobody wants him. These girls are racking up secrets and people who have come back from the dead. If Misty says there is something foul in your house, I would RUN….just saying.
I agree. There is something bad there, even beyond Axeman. I agree with Queenie–the place is a carnival of crazy.
WHAT THE HELL? DID ZOE RELEASE THE AXEMAN? NOT GOOD! NOT GOOD!
Creeper creeper Axeman creeper!
Poor Madison. She seems somewhat normal, except fuzzy, and really confused. She is more put together than Kyle at least. I am wondering if she recalls more than she is letting on though.
Madison does seem much better than I expected but I don’t trust it. Or her. I’m glad she doesn’t remember her time with Spaulding.
Oh, apparently the axeman isn’t released yet. I am unsure why he can touch Cordelia in that case. Oh Zoe, this is why you don’t make deals with serial killers. If tv and movies have taught me anything, it always goes badly. Anyone else think they shouldn’t be messing with magic? Get a grown up ladies, you’ve messed up enough. At this point, I am confused as to whether or not he’s actually free.
I think he’s gotten strength from the ouija board and Zoe’s promise. And yes, they need to stop with the magic. It looks like Cordelia’s sight is coming back, too. Blurry but it’s there.
Also, you want him to move on to the afterlife, not DOWN THE STREET. Epic fail, ladies.
Of course. Of course. Fiona was just saying she wanted a love affair, and who walks into the bar? I am guessing he’s fully free now…still unclear on that one. Either way, Fiona’s life just got more complicated.
I know, right? Fiona, NO.
Not as big of a fan of this episode as 3 weeks ago, but lots of interesting dynamics are developing and the reveal that Cordelia’s hubby is basically a hired witch killer/hunter was a fun twist. I can’t wait to see what happens next week.
I liked it but yeah, three weeks ago was better. I think this is just laying the groundwork.
