The latest installment of American Horror Story: Apocalypse was heavy on the rubber, but light on the witches.
We kicked things off with Michael Langdon parading around Outpost 3 with hair that looks very similar to his mother, Vivien’s.
He wasted no time in asserting his power in the lair, and Venable was livid. If you watch American Horror Story online, you know that Venable had a lot of rules about sleeping arrangements.
Primarily, she did not want anyone in the Outpost sleeping with each other. For those at home yelling about how it won’t be possible to repopulate the Earth, we hear you.
Timothy and Emily decided they wanted to have fun, and by that, they wanted to sleep with each other. It’s the end of the world, so why not?
They weren’t buying what Venable was selling about abstinence, so they broke into Michael’s room and found a conveniently placed laptop.
There, they found emails between Michael and The Cooperative. That’s when they found out that Venable was lying about not having sexual contact.
Venable was furious when the two teenagers went forward and had sex with each other. Venable ordered their deaths, but Timothy and Ash fought back.
Miriam wound up shot, but there was something amiss with her flesh. Is she even a real person?
As for Michael, he had a lot of sexual chemistry with Mr. Gallant, so much so that it seemed he was dressing up as the Rubber Man from Murder House and having sex with him.
But Michael was adamant he was not the one dressing up, and that he should try to find out the truth on his own.
Evie, Mr. Gallant’s mother, witnessed the sex between him and the Rubber Man and took the news to Miriam and Venable.
The pair tried to whip him to get the answers, but they realized when they looked down that he was getting off on the pain.
In a truly stunning shock, the Rubber Man showed up again, but Mr. Gallant opted to stab him because he was done with the mind games.
That’s when we learned that Evie had been body-swapped and was dead at the hands of her grandson. Well, at least she won’t be ratting on him any longer.
Elsewhere, Michael confronted Venable for lying to everyone about the rules, but Venable was not ready to back down.
She said that she was sent the rules, and she was following them. However, she did not have a copy of them at hand for Michael to cast his eye on.
Michael said that he was the one who sent the rules, calling her bluff. Oh, yes, there’s a power struggle between these two, and we’re all in for it.
While the episode had a lot of action, the preview for it claimed the witches would make their entrance into Outpost 3.
That did not happen, and the only excuse for that is that FX was trying to stop the typical week two drop the franchise has been known for.
