So...hints of alien abduction now...a very interesting an unexpected twist. Did he hallucinate this or was it real? Perhaps the residual trauma of the abduction and subsequent "examination" is the root of perceived earth-bound supernatural activity for people who experience them. Perhaps there is an implied correlation between abduction stories and paranormal activity.

Never saw that one coming. I am intrigued...
What about the disc/chip removed from the neck by the Dr? It sprouted legs!

Re: American Horror Story: Asylum (Spoilers)

Ah yes! Forgot about that. You're absolutely right - that scene erased any doubt that it could have been a hallucinatory experience. This one alien angle alone has me completely sold on watching the entire season to see what's going to happen. I already went into it with the opinion that this was already one hell of a show. Now, I'm drinking the whole flagon of kool-aide!

Not a spider.

It was a mech.

A tracking device, that when called upon can sprout legs and run.

Much like the similar devices in Taken and Falling Skies, or even X-Files.

Just because the first series was about ghosts, it doesn't mean that aliens don't exist, who can die also and come back as ghosts... Although, why ghosts at all this season?

The show is called "American Horror" not "American Ghosts" so really, each season they can target/use an entirely new beastie as their big bad.

This year it's motherfucking Aliens.

Great opening to the season. I love this because there is nothing else like it on television.

Also, I agree with previous posters that American Horror doesn't have to mean ghosts each season--I am totally happy with weird alien abductions. ???a sentence I never thought I would say???

^^^ You should go back to watch season 1. Same actors, different circumstances. Just as messed up.

Re: American Horror Story: Asylum (Spoilers)

I was discussing the premiere with someone at work today, and had a few random thoughts.

So it looks like the alien abduction was real, and the boy was innocent. So is he being tortured into becoming Bloody Face? We see the killer at the end of the episode confronting the girl in the current timeline, but our boy would be in his 70's now...so who was that?

Jessica Lange....she can bring it for an old lady! She's 63. Does that make her a GILF?



Who/what is outside in the woods?

What will happen to our reporter? I imagine it won't be good...



God, I love this show.

Re: American Horror Story: Asylum (Spoilers)

From the previews I've read in EW Magazine, the show will be featuring alien(s) (definitely not hallucinations), mutant experiments, a serial killer named Bloody Face, a Nazi doctor (we all know who that is), and "Reavers" among other things. Looking forward to tonight's episode with Zachary Quinto.
