Isn't this supposed to be the episode that changes everything? The one we are supposed to be waiting for? I'm very curious.

I believe so. Should be interesting to see how they transition from one story to the next if this is indeed the episode and there is a big switch/twist.

Murphy says it is the biggest twist in the history of the series.

Spoiler:
I read that Angela Basset, who directed this episode, plays at least two different characters in this episode. No mention of the others, but I would assume most of the regulars switch roles at some point.

The "twist" was very predictable, and overhyped. Murphy should have kept his mouth shut on this one.
Good episode, though. I feel like trying a new format has breathed some life into a show that was getting kinda stale.

I suppose Lady Gaga and Wes Bentley won't be back this season.

So was the "twist" the completion of MURDER?

Or did I miss something? Also is something supposed to happen when they completed it? I don't remember.

No, the "twist" is that the actors from the reenactment scenes are now characters themselves. Sarah Paulson is playing a British actress who married Evan Peters' character after the show wrapped up, Lily Rabe's character hooked up with the actor playing her husband in the reenactment, Kathy Bates' character went psycho as a result of the role, etc

I'm guessing she's not gonna get a Golden Globe nomination this year, though it would be funny if she did.

Good pivot. I like it. I suspected it was going to pivot to the 'behind the scenes'.

I still thought it was going to turn into something bigger. But this isn't the first time I was hoping that with AHS.

The problem is that the general public already knows about supernatural stuff being real in this universe. Remember that the witches from Coven went public and made the news. I think they even referenced that in Hotel last season. Or does the public just not buy into that stuff?

or you could say that the twist is that the series appeared to be in a "documentary" format, but is now in a "Found Footage" format. Many complained about the "lack of suspense" in the first half because we knew who survived, now we are told that all the people we are watching, -but one, -will be dead (though I wonder if that includes the producer, since he's not on-sight).

I speculate that the "real" versions of the characters will be played by
Spoiler:
Taissa Farmiga and Finn Wittrock. Both are confirmed to be in this season.

I think it would be cool if Lady Gaga played herself. As in, she took the reenactment acting gig as a side project to her music. And now, like how playing The Butcher caused Kathy Bates' character to go off the deep end, having played The Witch is messing with Lady Gaga as she returns to her music career. Or would that be too meta?

I too was hoping for something more like the Roanoke folks followed them home and started killing them. Since I'm not at all a fan of this found footage, fake Big Bother like reality show idea, I'm actually less interested in this than before. Thankfully there is always hope that they improve things if there is a next season.

That would be cool. After really enjoying her in Hotel, one of the big letdowns is just how little she was used. Same for O'Hare and Peters.

That would be cool, but I would have her be possessed by the Witch instead. Two people just going off the deep end is stretching it.

Isn't that what's kinda happening already? The possession? I don't think for a minute that Kathy Bates is playing a character who's merely mentally unstable.

I suppose. They made it sound like she was just mental though.

Pretty much, this^. As an AHS newbie, I was hoping this twist would knock me off the fence. It may have, but I'm landing on the side of calling the first 6 episodes a sunken cost and dropping it.

This "revolutionary" twist was fairly predictable. Worse than hdnmickey' feelings on Big Brother and found footage (which I share) is the matter of the characters all came off as insufferable twats. I was much more invested in them before this episode ... They were all reduced to one-note cannon fodder in this episode.

I'm sorry, nobody who went through something like that is EVER going back for ANY reason. I can believe the "actors" would (they didn't experience anything), but not their "real" counterparts. This leads me to believe the big twist at the end is that NONE of it was real and it was ALL a faked TV show (possible twist on that - the producer does kill everybody and claims he was possessed).

The only thing of interest from here out is "who is the one survivor?" Is that enough to overcome the characters sudden turn towards single-cell brains? I'm not sure it is. I'll continue to let it record, but won't make it a "must watch".

I'm guessing the producer is the one behind the actual killings and supposed supernatural events. It will be revealed the site wasn't haunted at all.
