In the American horror story of Wednesday, there was plenty of mullet and dwarf barbels that brought us back to one of the hottest (and pungent) eras in pop culture history.
AHS: 1984 Through the opening hours, we met Brooke Thompson (Emma Roberts), whose plans to study veterinary medicine in the summer were suddenly derailed after a confused serial killer had broken into her apartment, stealing her jewelry and herself sworn to murder her. (And if a guy calling himself "The Night Stalker" promises to kill you, you take that seriously .)
As a safer alternative, staying at home and facing death Waiting, Brooke agreed reluctantly Join their new friends ̵
But before we deal with the bloody details, let's briefly talk about Brooke's buddies: There's Montana Duke (Billie Lourde), a hair metal queen who dreams of being the biggest aerobics competitor to become of all times; Xavier Plympton (Cody Fern), a "serious" actor who routinely rejects the roles of daytime soaps; Ray Powell (DeRon Horton), a carer who dreams of more; and Chet Clancy (Gus Kenworthy), a perfect human specimen whose recent disqualification from the Olympics has confronted him with serious anger issues. (And taking into account his strong alcohol and cocaine abuse, he is a real good time.)
Despite a fairly clear warning from a tank warden that they should turn back ("They're all going to die!" ), Brooke and her friends continued to drive towards Camp Redwood – and they managed to run over only a pickup! While her pretty roadkill was being treated by the storehouse keeper Rita (Angelica Ross), the new advisers were given land by warehouse owner / hair icon Margaret Booth (Leslie Grossman).
Margaret is a devout Christian – and a literal friend of Charles Keating – who came to Christ in 1970 when her faith kept her alive after a brutal stabbing at Camp Redwood. A disturbed gentleman named "Mr. Jingles "(John Carroll Lynch) killed nine campers that night, and though Margaret survived, she lost an ear. (In case you did not notice, nobody bothered to conceal the fact that this camp is central to the serial killer, the advisers just do not seem to care.) As well Always, Margaret has "fought against the Lord for years fighting the muck around the world" and is now using her deceased husband's fortune to reopen Camp Redwood as a "divine, decent" place for children to re-open for the summer flee.
When Mr. Jingles spoke of escaping, he made his fame return to Camp Redwood this week after breaking out of a local mental hospital and ridding everyone in the facility for a good deal. And if Brooke does not hallucinate – which we know quite well – this hooded psychopath already has the life of the tank guard (he's been trying to warn her!) And the hot, no-sound disturbance demanded hikers. To make matters worse, the last shot of the episode greeted Brooke's "Night Stalker," who unfortunately seems to be a man of his word.
Also worth discussing …
* Matthew Morrison It was a funny surprise when Trevor Kirchner, the camp's activity director, set up a hilarious plan for fun summer activities. Known for appearing in the background of the opening credits of the Three & # 39; s Company and for staging Jane Fonda in an unpublished aerobics video ("The Thing Fluttered Like An Elephant Baby!"). He is already one of AHS The hitherto most ridiculous characters.
* We also have an immediate weakness for Chef Bertie (Tara Karsian), who rejected Chet's sarcastic rapprochement: "You would not know what to do if you're handsome."
* Because we're all a good one AHS connection was named Brookes attacker Richard Ramirez, a real-world killer who performed in Hotel as guest of James March for Devil's Night.
