    I don't have much to add to the Lena Dunham episode.

    Let's just say she was cast well. Saying ridiculous things about men is certainly in her wheelhouse.

    Ugh every time I think a season of AHS could be a good one they go and pull some cringy trout. It never goes well when they try to bring real historical people into it. FFS they even had the Zodiac in Hotel! It was dumb then and it's dumb now.

    As of the last two episodes, this season has dived off the deep end into "ugh why" for me.

    Pepe the frog getting name checked on actual television what a time to be alive.

    But honestly they've tried to do too much, like they've just bolted on this alt-right/SJW riffing onto a cult story and it doesn't work at all.

    The best part of online interaction about this show is all the people arguing about how "only their side is being represented badly" and the crazy behavior on the other side is accurate.

    Something I'm starting to hate about AHS is that the self-appointed good guys - and usually by extension Sarah Paulson - always win and it's getting predictable. The ol' you-got-me-oh-wait-psyche trick has been used in how many finales by her characters now? Asylum, Coven, Freak Show and now Cult.

    And she straight up got away with murdering Ivy with zero consequence or repercussion! When you have me rooting for an actual honest to god fascist sociopath to shoot you then ughhhhhh.

    This was probably one of the best seasons they've ever done. Having parody personalities of actual cranked up political opinions made every absurd thing that happened intentional and funny. They should lean into that more. People always rag on them for being ridiculous so they should just keep going down the dark comedy route.

    I think Ally putting on the SCUM robe at the end basically represented that she was going to be the equal opposite of Kai and instead of having an Alt-Right Nazi in charge they moved to having a radical feminist in charge. I guess it's a warning about having too much of anything unchecked is really bad.

    I agree about feeling this is a similar character route for Sarah Paulson that we've seen before.

    Oh it's over.

    At least it didn't end as abruptly as the last season did.
