Spencer’s AHS Cult Following: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

Hello fellow cultists…. you have survived another episode of “American Horror Story Cult“! If you haven’t seen last night’s episode, click away now because there will be vivid spoilers. This week we started to break into this new plot. Ally is losing her mind by the minute. Kai is running for city council. Immigrants are being blamed for everything and are probably looking at deportation. Winter is still a shitty babysitter and now she is starting to get a little too touchy with Ally. Billy Eichner and Leslie Grossman moved in across the street and are actually pretty amazing neighbors even though they are probably apart of this clown cult. The list goes on and on… so let’s just get into it.


The Good

Okay I am not sure how you guys feel, but I am actually enjoying this season. Is the show a little corny? Yes, it is. But it’s not bad television. I am into this storyline and I want to know what happens next. This season may never match up with my beloved “Coven” season, but this is still great stuff. Sarah Paulson is definitely delivering as the quickly unwinding Ally. I feel like we can all relate to Ally in ways because we are all afraid of something. We all have to learn how to deal with trauma and we all deal with emotions in different ways.

But enough of the deep stuff… let’s talk about Harrison and Meadow Wilton (Billy Eichner and Leslie Grossman) . I love the addition of these two, because they are HILARIOUS! Harrison is a gay man who married his best friend Meadow due to a pact they made back in the day. Harrison works as a beekeeper, is paranoid about Russians, and loves guns while Meadow is working on her new Etsy store. They are also co-vice presidents of the Michigan chapter of the Nicole Kidman fan club. Genius. When the power went out and Harrison ran up to Ally’s house identifying them as lesbians, I about died.

 

 

Oh lets not forget about this moment. She is definitely a serial killer.

 

 

Also, I would just like to point out how great Evan Peters is doing as Kai Anderson. His character is terrifying yet convincing. He horrifyingly enough, mimics many characters in our real-life political setting which is the true American Horror Story. Honestly, the part where Kai came to Ally’s house to “get her vote” was one of the scariest moments in AHS history. I about threw my phone when he grabbed the barred door.

 

The Bad

Okay Ivy is not taking this situation very well. Your wife is seeing clowns everywhere, she is afraid of everything, and you still let her go check out your creepy restaurant with a raised alarm. GOOD IDEA. Of course, Ally found a dead man in the meat cellar. Way to go Ivy. Then later on, instead of rushing home to check on her crazed wife during the power outage, she sends Pedro who of course gets shot by Ally… Let’s hope he didn’t die but either way Ally is going to the loony bin soon enough and Ivy is partly to blame. Honestly, I would not be shocked at all if Ivy was apart of the Cult. We shall see.

Okay I know he is a kid… but is Oz a little too gullible? The kid straight up asked the clown if he is asleep, the clown said yes you are, so the kid went back to sleep. Okay? I am still not 100% in on Billie Lourd’s character. Her character does not feel believable yet. I think the only moment I felt like I was into her acting was when she was trying to get out of the house. That felt real. I’m really hoping she turns it around going forward. But I will say, I was definitely into that scene where it seemed like Winter was about  to get all sexual when scrubbing Ally in the tub. Is that wrong…. Is it hot in here…?

In Summation

If you think Ally’s clown trigger is bad now, just wait until she sees the constant commercials for “IT”. Billy Eichner moving in across the street from you is probably the best news you could ever get. Even if he is apart of a Cult? White people are hereby banned from listening to Beyonce‘s “Lemonade”. I am wondering if Ryan Murphy was hoping I was going to draw a parallel between Harrison and Meadow in Cult to Burt and Heather Gummer in the hit movie, “Tremors”. Sending Ally to investigate the restaurant alarm was the worst idea in the history of ideas. Kai Anderson, you are fake news. Fake news is the enemy! I’m going to take a wild guess and say that Meadow’s favorite Real Housewife of Atlanta is Kenya Moore. I guess we won’t be “Voting 4 Pedro”… That was a Napolean Dynamite joke… I blame Trump for Ally shooting Pedro. I guess I won’t be chasing after ice cream trucks anymore…

If you want to talk shit about “Tremors“, I will block you. That is a good quality movie.


Well that was a surprisingly good episode! I honestly can’t wait for next week! I shall leave you all with this trailer for next week. Lets see how Ally gets out of this situation. While you guys are waiting, please run to your nearest movie theater and see “It“. It was phenomenal! I won’t ruin it for you, but it is terrifying yet very true to the original story. An excellent “coming of age” story. Kind of like Stranger Things on crack just without Winona Ryder.
