Re: American Horror Story Discussion (Spoilers)

And it's implausible that a six month old fetus could survive without intensive hospital care, but logic has never been this show's strong suit.

If the baby is dead, that means the story is stuck with a newborn ghost baby character indefinitely, which seems clumsy and not very useful to the show going forward. A live baby will pose problems that can generate story (how are they going to feed him?) and he can grow into a toddler at least, and become a factor onscreen. A newborn baby may as well just be a prop.

So the real question then is: Can ghosts breastfeed?

Seeing the baby is dead and so is Vivien, I wonder if Vivien will try to get the baby back from Nora. It is her child after all.

FYI: tonight's finale is longer than an hour. Set your DVR's accordingly.

Re: American Horror Story Discussion (Spoilers)

Thanks for the heads-up, I checked my DVR and it does say it ends at 11:10. Just to be paranoid, I'll bump that out a bit because I have the feeling, those last few moments will be crucial.

Even if Ben's child is dead, I guess they could go the Frankenbaby route and turn it into some kind of soulless horror that crawls around the floor, endangering everyone's ankles.

I'm travelling on business, and the hotel I'm staying at does not have FX.

DAMNIT!!!!



Thank God for TiVo, but I have to wait.....

It's amazing that the family found more happiness in their ghost lives than they did in their regular lives.

I applaud Ben for confronting Tate with his crap.

Agreed, especial ly when gathered around the Christmas tree. It was a Hallmark moment in a creepy kind of way. I do believe Tate was sincere when he apologized to Ben, out of love for Violet.

I was kinda sorry to see Ben die, but that was the only way he could be reunited with Vivien and Violet. WTF with the Ramos family? It's pronounced "Rah-mos" not "Ray-mos." And Mr. Ramos was obviously Filipino, not Spanish. I'm glad they left the house as soon as they came because they wouldn't have worked out in the long run. Not bad for a season finale.

So this is the direction the new season is going. Constance raises Evil Kid. The Harmons stay in the house, and the stories will still be from their perspective, except now they're ghosts.

Ventured into Beetlejuice territory a little bit there, but man that ending. I wonder how they're going to set up the next season.

I do admire this show for the daring risks it takes. And this is only the first season.

Re: American Horror Story Discussion (Spoilers)

The 3 year jump may be a good thing for season 2. We can assume they will be new people in the house and we also have a 3 year period that some other stuff could be flashed back to. Nice ending with little satan, its great how he is blonde and fair skined to decieve other unlike the kid in the Omen that was dark and evil looking.

Blonde, presumably because Tate and Vivian had light colored hair.

haha i was referring to the kid from The Omen, it's been a while since I've seen the original. I remember the kid in the remake had dark hair, but vaguely remember the original one.
