Pretty good episode, seems like there is definitely some sort of Pet Cemetery vibe going on with things that are killed/buried in the house.

Who's doing the casting on this show? The guy who played Sylar and Spock as a gay guy...I can't buy that.

The father is sure getting a lot of unwanted advances in his own house.

Fun fact: Zachary Quinto is gay. He came out publicly last week.

So didn't want this episode to end when it did! The show just keeps getting better.

Spoiler:
The spirits being bound directly to the property was much more explicit in this episode. Constance attempting to drag her daughter to the murder house before she died proves that she's fully aware of how it works.

It also points to the burn victim being an actual person, as he was seen outside the property (before Halloween) and Violet encounters him as well... which likely rules him out as a figment of the dad's imagination. I'm also wondering if it's been the boyfriend in the gimp suit the whole time...

More awesome. This show never fails to leave me with the feeling of forward momentum. It's going strong. Hope DirecTV/Fox fix their bullshit before next week so I don't have to just go get it online. Dicks.

But the daughter saw him too when he was knocking on the door and scaring away the trick 'r treaters. He's the one character I just can't quite figure out...besides the rubber suit dude (is it Tate?).

You're right. I remembered that fact and edited my post before I read your reply.

For some reason, there was a delay on the site and the two posts under mine didn't show up until 10 minutes after they were submitted. Even after I made the edit, I hit refresh and nothing new was posted.

Another great episode. Again good acting by Conroy and Lange. Britton was pretty good in the scenes in which she told off the fluffers.

I'm curious what the sonogram looked like that caused the nurse to faint. Maybe it had hoofs

I'm glad you specified she was overweight or I may have been completely lost on who we were talking about.

Did anyone else laugh every time they said fluffer?

Yeah, I was aware of that. Just making a joke...I left off the though.

So does the couple know what was on the sonogram? Maybe the fetus is wrapped in a rubber suit.

Did anyone notice that during the commercial for the FX Networks AHS website, there was a quick flash of Vivien and Latex-guy in the red room, again, where Vivien, lying down, has a flat stomach now, and Latex-guy, standing up, looks like he has a pregnant belly?

I love this show...

Thos.

Another fantastic episode. Seriously the best new show on tv. Waiting week to week is killing me. I love it that much.

It's the Romunlan ale.

Has anyone seen Quinto on the short lived Tori Spelling show where he was her gay friend. I new for sure then.

Not a bad episode. It made a bit more sense than the others.

I also chuckled that this is the 2nd FX show where the term "power bottom" was metioned (previously by Dennis on Always Sunny). Never in a million years did I think I'd ever hear that term once none the less twice!

Great Halloween themed episode. Hopefully the Directv shit gets done. Found it interesting that FX had Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk do a 20 second spot warning people about the plug possibly being pulled. Plus, to top it off FX and Directv both had tickers on the screen.

Surprised about the gay couple being resurrected as fluffers. The scene where the gimp beat the shit of and drowned Syler was pretty intense.

So all these "ghosts" are alive because their bones are buried on the property, but they aren't bound there I assume. Especially when the maid was able to visit her mother.

Awesome scene when the nurse passed out after seeing Vivien's ultrasound.

Sucks that we have to throw that theory out the window that the burned guy isn't a figment of Ben's imagination.

No, Halloween they can go wherever, but the blonde lady actually told the maid that she is now stuck there forever because Ben cemented the site where her bones are.

As jacob stated, there was a line in the episode about Halloween allowing spirits to wander, which is why the maid asked to be allowed to leave and Tate was able to meet Ben outside of the house.

Spock coming out as gay was as shocking as when Ricky Martin came out. Saw the dude on 24 that one season and it was obvious.

Great fucking show. I had questions but you guys nailed em.
