"He was twice the man you are."
"Well, he is now."
God, I love American Horror Story! I can't believe there are only two episodes left!
I loved that line! And I have to say, I didn't see that coming with Violet. Nice little twist that actually worked!
This show makes me so happy! Except for the Catholic prophecy nonsense, though. I still hate that. But everything else is happy-making!
Yeah, that didn't make much sense. Like, they just inserted some bullshit reason for the network to pick up the next season: "you have to buy it, because we still have to wrap up the Catholic prophesy plot line!"
Best line of the episode. The Violet reveal was anything but shocking, and I was glad to see Ben--that is the dad's name, right? God, I can never remember--actually fighting back, and almost kicking Tate's ass instead of just going down like a sack of dirt as soon as he was attacked.
However, I had hoped there was something more original than "the anti-christ" at the heart of it all. We'll see what the last two episodes--and season 2--bring.
I am so, so disappointed with all that anti-Christ, Pope's secret box nonsense, I can't even tell you. It should be given the boot immediately!
Definitely. Not only is it boringly unoriginal, but it takes things out of the realm of the house, and for me it's all about the house. Hopefully this anti-christ nonsense is just that, nonsense, but I swear to God if their next stop is that the house is the doorway to Hell I'm out of there.
I can't imagine they would take the time to introduce it and then do nothing with it. The show has lots of fun twists, but I don't see suddenly ignoring all the Catholic prophecy nonsense as one of them.
You can't let me have even this tiny sliver of hope, can you?
And it doesn't have to be nonsense, really, just not THE thing. Surely they've got something more unexpected. They have to. For the love of God. SOMETHING. I did NOT invest an entire season in this show just to watch THE OMEN IV again.
A friend came up with a much more interesting theory, which is that the spirit of the mad scientist's slain baby, which is currently making cameo appearances as the big-toothed thing in the basement, is calling the shots and trying to make a new, living body for itself.
That, to me, is SO much cooler than the Catholic anti-Christ prophecy bullshit.
