Great episode.

Had some new words I didn't understand. "Gash" I think. Will look into it tomorrow

It's a slang term for the female genital area, think calling someone the "C" word.

A rather unfortunate turn of effects tonight, I will miss Ms Roberts gracing my screen. frown.gif

Crap, forgot to record this (and many other shows this week). I hope they have it on demand. I don't see it being replayed all week.

Well that was full of uncomfortable sex. I don't get the Minotaur, I really hope they explain how putting a bull head on someone turns them into half-beast. I don't remember any magic being involved.

One more casualty. Are they dead for good or will they come back as a ghost or something else like a dark fairy?

No!!! Not Emma Roberts! Maybe Zoe is going to get Stevie Nicks Wanna-be to resurrect her. Or as the next Supreme, she is able to resurrect herself.

I'm getting really annoyed at the Zoe character. She has no sense and no backbone. Bring a dead kid back to life and then drop him off at mom's house like nothing happened when something is obviously not right with him (besides having different body parts)!

Thanks, Keenan.

I was shocked at the incest eek.gif

Boy, did Kyle bash her face in eek.gif

I wonder if this episode was filmed before or after Emma Roberts punched Evan Peters in the face and got arrested? That could be an influence on how dead her character is. biggrin.gif

I never set this one up to auto record because I wasn't sure I was going to watch this season but the wife loves it. Looks like I have to now.

He was Angela Basset's lover; she did the spell that kept him alive all those years and transformed him- not sure why she didn't remove the head and just keep the man alive...

I assumed that he already was immortal when Kathy Bates put another spell on him and made him the minitar.

Wait. Delphine (Kathy Bates) is not a witch. Or am I wrong? She lived hundreds of years buried because Marie (Angela Basset) put a spell on her.

I was under the assumption that Marie put a spell on her boyfriend (the minotaur) for sleeping with Delphine's daughter during the opening scene in the first episode. She made him a immortal minotaur.

Delphine is not a witch, she was just an evil, sadistic mater familias. She just tortured the slave that slept w/ her daughter and then put that bull's head on him.

That explanation for why Marie made him into an immortal minotaur makes sense. I don't think it was spelled out- or even inferred (though maybe I missed it), but it makes sense.

Speaking of the minotaur, he had hooves last night! I thought Delphine only put a hallowed-out bulls head on him. Wonder if Marie change the idea for the immortal version.

Yeah, it was never mentioned. You're good to go biggrin.gif

Its a non fictional show, enjoy it. Not everything needs time to be explained. Let the mind run wild. Perhaps things happened where she turned her lover immortal to live with her.

When you introduce something that has no justification to exist within the confines of the narrative. Then, yeah, you need to explain it.

That's what didn't happen last season when it all fell apart.

No it doesn't. We haven't seen any evidence so far that Delphine has any magical ability and when we first saw the minotaur he was just a regular dude with a bull carcass on his head. So there is a story gap between the time Marie found him and why is now part bull. Making him immortal is clear because we've seen that happen by means of just a potion, but at some point they need to do a minotaur flashback episode. I expect they will just to fill in the romance angle between the two of them. As far as shown, the guy never slept with Delphine's daughter and the daughter made that up, probably because she made a move and he rejected her. Fairly standard plot device for that type of period story.

Good posting.

Incest, mythical-beastiality, a mason jar containing "baby batter" (I think that is what she called it)... much shock-value, but not much compelling storytelling.

I forgot also, and it is available On Demand, and you're not able to FF the commercials.

If you are on Comcast hit the chapter button when the commercials begin. That will take you 5 minutes beyond that point. Then rewind back to where you see the rating in the upper corner and hit play. Commercial breaks are 3 or 4 minutes so you only have to rewind 1 or 2 minutes.

I find that sometimes with American Horror Story you just have to watch the whole season and then look back and judge items at the end. For instance, last season the UFO visits -- they were never really explained, but ultimately didn't matter that much anyway.

I don't think Madison (Emma Roberts) will stay dead for long... what would be the fun in that? tongue.gif

Hank is a witch slayer I assume? That was pretty brutal eek.gif

Acid was thrown on Cordelia's face in the bathroom at the bar?

Interesting how the decapitated minotaur was still alive. Immortal maybe means you're still living without a body eek.gif

Nice to see the background on the butler, Spalding.

Zomibes!! Those was a great addition. Sucks they show stopped right at the good spot.

Did I miss something? The girl was a witch? If he is a witch slayer, I assume Cordelia doesn't know.

I guess Emma Roberts is still on the show. smile.gif

Darth, I agree about the cast. It's early, but so far, it's the best ensemble yet.

I do not know if she's a witch. Just odd how he executed her like that. He also told her "I was a monster" as his Halloween costume last year. Maybe he's just a serial killer.
Did you know his secret lover was played by the infamous maid in season 1? Moira O'Hara played by Alexandra Breckenridge.

How about the male witch that's on the special comity? That guy was a hoot.
