American Horror Story

Halloween: Part 1 - S1-E4

Question: One thing I do not understand is this... "if" the souls of the deceased (that die within the walls of "Murder House") are trapped there for eternity then how does the maid get to go see her mother (obviously off premises) and Tate get to meet up with Dr. Harmon for coffee for his appointment?

Chosen answer: Because on Halloween, the souls of The Dead are said to roam the Earth. That includes those souls that are trapped within the walls of the "Murder House".

Home Invasion - S1-E2

Question: If I remember correctly, the Harmons moved to LA 6 months after Ben's affair. He mentions treating Tate for several weeks. How is it that Hayden is just now finding out she's pregnant? Also, that she is early enough into the pregnancy to have an abortion?

Answer: He flew back a few times to be with her as mentioned in their fight.

Show generally

Question: Why does the maid age, while everyone else remains the age they were when they died?

Answer: Moira's ghost form is unique because of the way she was treated when she was alive. To people who do not sexualize her and truly understand and view her for who she really (namely women), she is seen as an older woman. To people who objectify and don't care to see the truth (namely men), they see the young seductive Moria. It's a strong directorial choice to eventually show how Ben Harmen comes to terms with the truth of the house and himself.

Murder House - S1-E3

Question: If all the people who were murdered in the house stay as ghosts, why does Hugo (Constance's husband) never show up again in the season? All of the other ghosts did.

Answer: Hugo did show up; he was seen having sex with Hayden (Ben's mistress).

Continuum - S2-E12

Character mistake: When Lana and Kit are speaking in the cafe, the window behind them contains a spelling mistake. The window reads "Bolyston Cafe" when it should say "Boylston Cafe." (00:31:45)

Show Stoppers - S4-E12

Trivia: They pay homage to the original 1932 movie Freaks. In Freaks, Cleopatra gets mutilated and turned into a tarred and feathered bird for visitors to gawk at in terror. Hercules gets viciously attacked under the carnival vehicle. In this episode, Stanley gets cornered by all the freaks under the carnival vehicle and gets viciously attacked and mutilated to resemble Meep (a feathered freak who was killed by the cops in an earlier episode).
