    I feel sorry for all the peeps with trypophobia. All these irregular hole patterns.

    I wonder what will happen first: Sarah Paulson says "I am literally shaking right now" or Evan Peters calls someone a cuck.

    I wasn't going to watch this today, as I've been in a really bad headspace (anxiety and paranoia) but I'm feeling a bit better and it sounds so smurfing awful it might actually cheer me up some. xD

    The characters themselves are like caricatures of real political thoughts cranked up to 11.

    After letting this episode settle in a bit, I feel like you'll appreciate it more if you treat it like a grandiose carnival ride.

    Given its political slant, I went in on this series expecting to take it more seriously than previous seasons and trying to dig out political nuance. That was a mistake. So when the clowns come in and there's dramatic music over scenes that are seemingly silly, I keep in mind that they're intentionally outrageous and over the top.

    I hope they've done that to lull you into a false sense of security before they actually make it scary as trout.

    BUT, this IS American Horror Story. So no. xD

    So any chance one of our main characters is secretly a masked clown?

    I think they're trying to make it apparent that Kai is probably the ringleader. But a lot of people think Ivy is a clown, too. The only thing missing is motive. But she always seems to be absent when the clowns are around and it would explain why they're randomly drawn to Ally's house.

    How bad does a babysitter gotta be before you fire her? First episode, she lets the boy run across the street to the murder scene. Second episode, she leaves him alone with the new neighbors of said house. Then she diddles you in the bathtub.

    You know what, never mind. Leave her on full time.

    After a few episodes I'm doubling, nah, tripling down on this mindset.

    I've enjoyed this show a lot more once I treated it like a dark comedy with horror elements. There's no way some of the dark scenes in this episode weren't intentionally hilarious. Sombreros at the door? Get out.

    Now we're getting somewhere with the whole cult thing.

    Okay I really liked this last episode for some reason.

    I mean, it was all complete garbage as per, but I was engaged!

    This is it, it has peaked.

    Ivy is a clown theory going full speed ahead.

    And her computer password is Clownz, which they kind of glossed over in the first episode like it was a throw away. But it totally wasn't a throw away.

    At no point during the babysitter hiring process did she acknowledge "Ah, you're here, we tied up a grocery store clerk in a basement". She knew she was coming in for the job.

    The question is does the AHS crew think they're still pulling the wool over our heads or are these revelations supposed to be so obvious it hurts.

    And didn't we see Kai doing his whole power of voodoo thing to her all the way back in episode 1?

    This show doesn't really have a protagonist. I guess it's supposed to be Ally in the sense that she seems to be the only character that isn't involved with the clowns, but she's been slapped with as many over the top political stereotypes as everyone else.
