Can't wait for tonight. Random bump.

Wow, no comments on last-nights episode yet? Let me be the first to say that, with the exception of the "piggie pig" arc, that episode was stellar. I was creeped out by it the entire time. ...and that's not an easy thing to do.

Thought it was great...intrigued by the whole "ghosts who don't know they are ghosts angle.". Doesn't Tate wonder why he can only leave the house on Halloween, or why he never gets older? And I wonder why all of a sudden all of the ghosts came out at the same time in the basement?

It's almost lunch time here and for some reason I am really craving a raw brain, or even a bloody pancreas. Damn product placement in my TV shows always gets me every time.

Here's what I've surmised. Tate doesn't know he's a ghost because he was "taken over" by the house and has no recollection of the events that led up to his death or his death itself. Remember, he didn't remember any of the students he killed when they came looking for him. I think we're going to learn that Violet is some sort of "Medium" herself. After finding out that Tate was a murderous, dead, ghost she was emotionally open to anything that went on in the house. I thought Taissa Farmiga's acting was brilliant BTW. A great talent in the making?

I get the sense Violet is being recruited and will end up like the woman next door. Husband and/or wife are well on their way to joining Tate...

Do you think Constance is feeding Adelaide's organs to Vivien?

I still think Vivien wasn't eating those gross eats. Especially the brain.

Well, I'm not sure anybody actually likes them. Heck, even the people doing the shooting often kill themselves at the end, so I'm not sure even they do.

I do like that the show seems to pull very few punches, though.

On the other hand, I'm generally not a fan of excess gore for the sake of shock value. I'm more of the "let the imagination make it seem worse than what they showed" type of guy.

Having said that, if the gore is clever (like the scene in "The Walking Dead" where they attempt to pull a zombie out of a well), I can soak that up with no problem. So, when we thought the dog went "pop" in the microwave, that was well done (no pun intended) enough to make me appreciate it.

This show is for sure reaching the edges of what people are used to on standard cable. While there is gore its not over done like many slasher movies and IMO is quite "tasteful" for what could be done.

I have to say this show continues to be tops for me. I wouldn't call it scary, but it's definitely a mindtruck . As soon as the Tate reveal happened I though of the 6th sense. Great move though to have them pull that off.

I doubt it, if only because it would have been difficult for her to do that as the M.E., coroner, paramedics, and cops would have taken possession of the body shortly after Adie's death. When would she have had the opportunity? And that kind of tampering with a body - removing all its organs - would surely have been noticed.

OTPH, that brain sure looked human sized. And Vivian sure did gobble it up, every tasty morsel, but looked a little disturbed afterward (indigestion? or.... evil??).

But who can blame her? I know eating brains always has that effect on me.

I don't know how that could be possible.

While she dragged the body to the side of the street, there were clearly emergency personnel and police officers there. How would she get access to the body to do that? It's not like some of the other people who were buried on the property on the down low without notifying the authorities.

I supposed she could have paid someone off at whatever funeral home that prepped her body, but to what end? It's not like there's any story precedent for a person's spirit entering someone's body by consuming them. Sure, there has been the belief in some cultures of gaining their strength by those means, but not having their spirit inhabit them. Even if that were the case, wouldn't it be better to freeze the stuff and slip it into the baby food down the road to ensure the child gets it instead of the mother?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say it really was pig parts if she really was eating the stuff at all. It seems like a "Rosemary's Baby" type of thing you would do to open things up for evil to enter.

However, the fact she would simply sit down and eat a raw brain makes me more certain this whole deal is happening in somebody's head somewhere. I just don't see her doing that unless being controlled in some way - though I suppose the devil baby could be making her do it.

It's a tv show. Anything is possible. The sono tech saw hooves on the fetus, and the doctor never saw the results of the sonogram?

In this Ryan Murphy interview he explains that Constance is acting as a provider for the baby. There is no mention of Adelaide or any other plan.

I will put it in spoiler tags, but it's really not much.

Constance says “We need another baby.” Does that mean the house needs a baby?
Yes. Two episodes from now really deals with why does the house and its occupants have baby mania. What is that about? Constance is clearly in cahoots with someone or some thing. I can’t say.

What’s the deal with Vivien eating the meat and especially the brain? Is she under control of the house? Or the baby is taking over?
I think that her baby is having some really demonic cravings. God bless Connie Britton for shooting that scene with the brain and all that stuff. I believe it was made for Connie who is one of the all time health conscious people I know. I believe it was made from gelatin and molded. There’s a little bit of a homage to Rosemary’s Baby where she ate the liver. We wanted to one up it. Of course everyone’s gonna now say like that’s so totally not sanitary. To which we respond, when you see the baby, then we will talk about it. That baby has some ferocious cravings.

That's ridiculous. That's why we get so much crap on TV. Unless this all takes place in a nightmare, it should be grounded within the physics of the universe it presents. In this case, the accident occurred in plain site of people required to take possession of the body on a public street billed as being the real world.

It's one thing to have people's spirits roving around. There are a lot of people who firmly believe in hauntings. It's part of our folklore.

However, it's a far different thing when something that is common procedure in the real would is violated. When the ambulance shows up, they take the person away. They continue to provide life-saving measures until a qualified person pronounces them dead.

Now, you could say mom dragging her to the curb was unrealistic...why didn't they stop her. Well, that can be explained by the shocked expression on the EMT's face. He was taken by surprise. He likely wouldn't try to stop her based on how many EMT's get attacked by crazy people they are trying to help. If the scene had run a few seconds more, we might have scene cops drag mom away from the body.

He wasn't there. What would he have seen? Unless the tech printed the image or recorded the feed of the cloven hoof baby, the image went away when the tech fainted and was no longer holding the imager on the womb. The machine doesn't just store that stuff for later.

Even if he did see the images, it was billed as being a malfunction. Seriously, why would any rational medical professional believe someone has a devil baby inside them?

The sono tech's reaction was actually the least realistic. Anyone in her position would have called in a doctor to confer on it, perform another test with a second machine to rule out defective equipment and schedule further tests to see what was up.

However, if she was indeed someone who would freak out that way (which is possible - there are all kinds of people out there), it stands to reason the rest of the staff would take that with a grain of salt. Her reaction would be isolated to her only, pending further testing. The medical community is way to set on science to believe what she did out of hand. They test, test and test again and still will never acknowledge anything they can't explain with science.

The thing is, the parents got called away before a second opinion or another test could be performed, so all the doctors had to go one was a freaked out tech who they likely assumed hit her head when she fainted.

And surely they'd be hurrying to schedule another sonogram, right? You'd think Constance would be dying to do that. Unless that too is being controlled by the demon spawn.

Every time my wife had a sonogram, the doctor reviewed the results. If it was never finished, they would need another. Especially since she seems at an age where risk is a factor. We had our last child this year and my wife was 39. They made us get sonos very often.

It's a tv show. Is it hard to enjoy it because things happen that wouldn't happen in the "real world?"

Maybe the doctors at that hospital all know to avoid looking at sonograms from anyone living in "that house". They're no dummies; they went to Medical School!

That's precisely what's happening. Very similar to Rosemary eating raw liver or, if you've ever seen the movie Grace, she's feeding her baby blood and human flesh. It's a play on mother's intuition on what they're craving because of the baby.

I don't have a problem with that, either, since being pregnant causes women to have all kinds of cravings. A devil baby might very well substitute raw brains and pig livers for pickles and ice cream.

They went back for an amnio. That usually is done in conjunction with a sonogram. So, yes, apparently they did schedule another appointment.

Now, if we go with the idea that demon spawn in movies often come with the ability to shape shift, it's no surprise nothing was seen later. Perhaps little Beelzebub was snoozing and had his guard down with the other exam.

There was a comment made that the ultrasound was defective and couldn't get the results of the image. That nurse was the only one who saw it.. remember? I don't remember if there was second exam but hiding the hoofs could be possible I suppose.

We will certainly find out whose organs were fed to Vivien. That should be a great reveal.
