Just watched this... I don't know, I might be done with this season. The gang raping of Emma Roberts was bad enough in Episode 1. Now we got more crazy stuff like 1) Frankenstein Monster Kyle's Mom raping him, which seems to be a normal thing before he got killed in the bus. She obviously notices the body is different... 2) The Minotaur coming after Kathy Bates but Precious cuts her and puts Kathy's blood on a napkin to draw the Minotaur away. The she proceeds to masturbate in front of it and either the Minotaur killed or raped her. I could not tell. All because the girls were teasing her earlier than she was a virgin. 3) Boiling semen in a mason jar. WTF. It was a imaginary sequence of what the Voodoo tribe would've done to help Fiona's daughter get pregnant.
A battle to the death between Emma Roberts and Jessica Lange. Obviously, Jessica would be more important to the show than Emma, who the fans seem to hate for beating up Evan Peters in real life. I think it was a red herring anyways that Emma was the Supreme. It's going to end up being the girl with Down Syndrome. The old Supreme before Jessica Lange said witches have been known to have up to 3 powers and weren't the Supreme. Emma had Telekinesis and Pyrokinesis and maybe mind control but it wasn't revealed if she or Jessica Lange made the guy walk into the middle of the street.
I enjoyed it. I'll concede that there might be misdirection about Madison being the supreme. I'd imagine that there must always be a supreme anyway, so even if it was going to be Madison, one of the other girls would wind up chosen.
I was wondering of who was going to get the Chloe Sevigny role of showing up in the first few episodes and then being killed off or marginalized pretty quickly. At least Emma won't spend a few episodes in heavy make-up yelling for people to kill her.
I'm curious to see just what the Minotaur did to Queenie. I don't think he raped her, but it looks like he knocked her out or something. (I don't think they'd kill two of the four girls in the same episode. Plus, Queenie's connection to Tituba makes her too important to the Voodoo-Witch war.) I was surprised that he's developed cloven feet and hands. Did LaLaurie do that to him when she put the mask on, or is that part of his punishment from Laveau? If LaLaurie did it, does that mean she's masking some of her powers? Given enough time, will he turn into a full on bull?
While I'm not trying to begrudge you your opinion, oudom, I'm a little confused why the rape is bothering you so much this season. We didn't quite have a gang rape previously, but season one had Tate rape the gay couple (and Mrs. Harmon though she thought it was her husband). Season two wound up revolving around the outcome of Lana's rape. This show has always been about crazy, uncomfortable situations, (is boiling semen any odder than anything that happened with James Cromwell last year?) so I'm surprised that they could go to a place that would lose your interest.
Because a nun raping a priest and a dead person raping a sleeping person and getting her pregnant with a demon child is any different?
And I was shocked that they killed Madison but, let's face it, this is American Horror Story and nobody actually stays dead.
I liked this episode, honestly. I just know that Misty Day is going to have a pretty big role in it. In a story about life, death, and everlasting life it's hard to believe that someone with her abilities won't play a big role.
I'm kinda with Simon in not liking the entire country genre but I can enjoy good performances... ...and Phil had a great performance in my eyes. I also agree that he probably can't save himself this week, but I think he found his niche (finally).
