So this past week we said goodbye to another show that ended its season. “American Horror Story” is over until October, when a new chapter will begin. Some hints have already been dropped. It’s supposed to be a modern day Romeo and Juliet, but with a twist. Jessica Lang, Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson are all back in some fashion. Apparently some actors from the first season will also be returning, such as Taissa Farmiga (Violet Season 1) who will be a lead character.
As the season came to its end, pretty much so did the lives of most of the characters we’ve come to enjoy. Though given the nature of the show, that was expected. I still feel like I needed a few more answers here and there.
Lana Banana become a big famous author after writing her book about the asylum and Thredson, a book she called “Maniac.” Apparently much of the book was fiction. She completely whitewashed her relationship with Wendy, she claimed her baby died, and who knows what else she fibbed. Others like Kitt went on with their lives, but weren’t happy with how Lana had become famous and forgotten them all. Kitt lost both Grace and Alma, but eventually remarried. He also went back for Sister Jude/Judy and brought her to live with him and his kids. Judy eventually passed on, and I felt bad that she was never forgiven by the church and in some way exonerated by them. She became their scape goat in so many ways. Who knows, perhaps she didn’t want their forgiveness, and she herself did some pretty terrible things during her reign.
Lana eventually had some attack of guilt and went back to shut down Briarcliff, oh and to get more book deals and TV specials in the process. We learned Monseigneur Timothy eventually killed himself after all the horrible things came out, and his own guilt caught up with him. She reconnected with Kitt and learned all about Jude/Judy, who she originally thought was dead. She did initially go back for her after she got out, but the Monseigneur lied about her saying she was dead and hid her away from all for years.
Kitt’s kids basically grew up to be geniuses. Kitt ended up with cancer, but mysteriously disappeared. We saw what really happened, the aliens came for him. I wish we learned more about the aliens, what they were after, their bigger plan, etc. Clearly they saw something in Kitt’s DNA that they liked. Though wouldn’t that have been smart enough to pick someone without cancer genes? Frankly the aliens were the one thing I didn’t like about this season and feel we could have done without all together.
In the end Lana decided to have one final TV interview where she finally came clean about all the lies over the years. Meanwhile her son, Bloody Face 2.0, made his way into her place posing as part of the crew and biding his time. He had been stalking her for years. However Lana was no idiot. She recognized him immediately thanks to some cops coming to see her earlier about the recent murders that they suspected him of. When they were alone, he finally struck to kill her and make his father proud. However Lana Banana turned the tables on him and shot him in the head! And fade out . . .
I was actually stunned with the end and Lana offing her own kid. However I shouldn’t have been, as the show is just twisted and anything can happen. As much as I didn’t like some aspects, I will miss the show and will count down to the new season. I’m really hoping that Frances Conroy is somehow part of the new season, as I just adore her. I am also hoping for ghosts again.
