Anyway, when are the cops going to get suspicious?
Never. The woman vanished in the cop car two weeks ago and the security guy was just like, "Eh, oh, well."
I forgot, they all live in LA.

EDIT: The people love crazy sleaze! Series high ratings on Wed!

American Horror Story ratings rightfully have FX PR crowing. It was up two tenths of a point vs. last week to a cable leading, and series high, 1.8 adults 18-49 rating.

My guess is "Rubber Man" is the son of the original owners Dr. Charles and Nora Montgomery. When Charles resurrected the child a la Frankenstein, Nora said the baby wasn't human anymore. What if he survived all these decades and was the one who murdered the gay couple?
I think Frankenbaby might have been the father of Constance's four kids, and maybe he was the original Rubber Suit Man, but whoever is in the suit needs to be a big, immediate, cliffhanger-generating shocker when he takes off the mask.

That's why I think he has to be played by one of the actors already established as main characters, but it doesn't make sense that any of the already-introduced characters to be the Rubber Suit Man.

It makes the most sense for him to be the one major character we've yet to meet - Constance's fourth child - and the only main-cast actor who would plausibly play him is Evan Peters, on the assumption that he's Tate's twin brother.

Vivian being pregnant with twins is the clue - this isn't the first time a good/evil twin thing has happened in the house. And here's a juicy possibility - what if Tate was not the psycho who killed the kids at school, but rather his evil twin?

And that's why Tate doesn't remember doing it. Sadly, when the SWAT team arrived, Tate was the one they found. Nobody knew the brothers were twins. Maybe the bad one was usually locked in the attic with Beau?

I missed the episode when they showed Constance's husband Hugo. It appears Constance shot and killed Hugo and Moira, both of whom she suspected were having an affair with each other. Having said that, I think Hugo might have fathered some if not all of Constance's kids (Adelaide, Beauregard, Tate). Constance has said that she's had more than one handicapped child, and wasn't she married to Hugo for a very long time?

As for Tate, I didn't realize he had a twin brother.

I didnt remember Constance having FOUR kids. So one Downs, one deformed and potentially violent, one a killer, and Tate?

She mentioned it during the second or third episode, I believe, boasting that she has/had one child who's different from the others and is beautiful. I thought it was the young gigolo guy whom she presumbably slept with (that would've been twisted), but that could've been just an escort. But then Constance might have been referring to Tate as her "beautiful child."

I don't know that child #4 is a twin or even male - I'm just spinning out a wild-ass theory to make all the pieces snap together.

I can't help noticing that "Tate" was the name of a famous victim of a mass killing, not the perpetrator. Another clue?

Hugo is probably Tate's father, since Tate was the only normal one of the bunch. The others were fathered by Frankenbaby in the gimp suit.

However, it's hard to reconcile my pet theory with supposedly good Tate reaching for a gun when the SWAT team broke down the door.

Back to the drawing board. I'll come up with something good before next Wed.

It was more than a suspicion. She walked in on Hugo trying to rape Moira. He was on top of her, with his pants down, etc.

It was revealed that Hugo and Moira had previously slept together on a more consensual basis, but now Moira was trying to call off the affair. Unfortunately, Hugo wasn't taking no for an answer . . . until Constance walked in and shot them both.

Indeed. Constance shot Moira right in the eye. Bam! That explains what happened to Moira's eye.

I wonder why Moira appears as either a young or an older woman to different people. If she's a ghost, how could she even age?

Moira has the ability to cloud mens minds which is why she appears that way to men. When the guy was being suffucated the shot from inside the bag showed her as old.

Is Hugo the guy in the rubber suit? Did he die in the bedroom or did Constance drag him outside before he expired so he didnt come back as a ghost in the house?

Don't worry, folks. He's over 18.

Well, I sorta knew. He was one of the possible choices.
