VERY mild spoiler-alert. AHS has become so confusing that it’s hard to spoil.
There has been speculation for MONTHS as to what the theme of season six would be. People were guessing that it could be anything from a “Children of the Corn” deal to a scary radio station (please no!). TMZ managed to snag these photos back in August which did point us towards what ended up being the theme – the Roanoke mystery.
The series seems to be trying to do a ghostly reenactment/documentary show, inside the show. It’s confusing, but fans are thinking it’s a bit too easy to explain. If the premise is to be believed right now, the characters live to tell their tales. Where is the tension? What is Ryan Murphy and co hiding from us?!
Well, that’s what the internet is trying to answer, now that it’s been a couple of days and the premiere has sunk in (and allowed for a re-watch or two). These theories justify it with everything from the idea that the actors aren’t actually acting, to one or all of the characters are flat out lying. but those are tame compared to these TERRIFYING ones from Reddit, compiled by the Huffington post. The overview? Witchcraft, satanic cults, and straight up aliens.
To add to all this speculation, they released this teaser trailer for the next episode. Viewer discretion advised for obvious reasons, I watched it through my finger tips.
