All The AHS Connections We Found So Far
American Horror Story Season 4, titled ‘Freak Show’ is closing in to its tragic, yet exciting end. While we are throwing in our wild speculations about the season finale, you also need to buckle up for season 5, which will hit us eventually. There are some hints dropped about the season already but the one enticing revelation is that all the seasons are intertwined. As Ryan Murphy stated, “They’re all connected. We’re just beginning to tell you how they’re connected. They’re all very separate but there’s clues every season that we’re now telling you how the different worlds are intertwined. Part of the fun of the show is the Rubik’s cube design of it, but, yes, there are purposeful connections, character connections, and similarities and things that connect that we’ll continue to connect moving forward.”
The first hint was Pepper’s appearance in two seasons and then there was Sister Mary Eunice, about which Murphy said, “I don’t want to say much about it but obviously she’s playing Sister Mary Eunice. The interesting thing about doing a show like this is every season is incredibly its own story and its own beginning, middle and end. Its own journey. But we have always from the very beginning in the intertwining mythologies and how things connect. This is the first year where we begin to tell you that season two is connected to season four which is connected to season one. People have started to write articles about that. A lot of their hypotheses have been completely right on. That’s the fun of the show. Hopefully by the end of the run, be it 10 years or 15 years, people will be able to stand back and be able to say, “Oh that was connected to x.””
And there are more frequent finding regarding the connections since Murphy dropped that information. There are connections based on the show’s time periods and staging, like the seasons occurring majorly in the 50s, 60s, 70s and the 80s or at least there are flashbacks of these periods. Also, as we know, Elsa got her legs cut off and that might just have been the act of Dr. Arden who did something similar to Shelley in Asylum. Seems to fit. Then there is the strikingly similar psycho tendencies shared by Freak Show’s Dandy Mott and Asylum’s Bloody Face. The family title ‘Montgomery’ seems to pop up more than once. We had Madison Montgomery in AHS: Coven and the original owners of the season one’s Murder House were also Montgomerys. We will obviously learn far more once the fifth season takes off and until then let’s carry on with the speculations.
