American Horror Story is a horror-drama series, going strong for four steady seasons so far. The fourth and current season is called Freak Show and stars like Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, all of who have been parts of previous season of the show. But the actors are the only thing common in these various seasons of American Horror Story. The chos’s creator, Ryan Murphy stated to Entertainment Weekly, “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 show simply never fails to amaze us but many of the loyal fans of the show actually saw this coming and Murphy stated that many of the fan theories over the net are absolutely correct. Murphy further said, “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.””
This is another reason of interest for the fans and connecting the dots between the several seasons available and those yet to come. Murphy further mentioned, “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…there’s definitely a rhyme or a reason and a connectedness to all of these seasons, but in the same way, they’re standalones, which is the fun of it. But it is a puzzle. And Lily coming back and dealing with Pepper is sort of the first unveiling of that connectedness.”
When the season began, there was a lot of buzz about the killer clown of the show. Twisty the clown was one of the major attractions of the season but with him dead, the viewers have reason to be disappointed. However, this is American Horror Story and the creators are not prepared to let go of the fearful of element of the show just yet. Murphy presents spoilers about the return of the fallen clown and states, “Twisty is not over, and neither is Edward Mordrake. They both make triumphant returns. I was shocked to read so many of these ‘RIP Twisty’ websites and blogs have sprung up. People love Twisty…He will return.”
