Hey everybody, I hope you have enjoyed the blog so far but there will not be many spoilers in the blog because if there were you would not need to watch the show if you have not watched the show already, but in this blog I will not be giving away all the connections in the show. This is a part 2 so there is already a video in the spoiler tab that went into further detail about the connections so there won’t be a video going along with this post. This blog is going to be different because I have talked about all the seasons of American Horror Story so far and I already started talking about one connection but there are more connections to touch on but not every connection will be discussed but certain connections will be touched on but before we get into that lets recap about last week’s blog. If you have not read last week’s blog please do because you will get more details. Last week I talked about a connection in the show how the series touches on Dante’s Inferno the 9 circles of hell which every season so far touches on each level except for Lust which would be very interesting to see how that goes. Now that we touched on that let’s get into this week’s blog.
Now if you have noticed AHS shares a connected universe through all 8 seasons some connections are very noticeable and some you may not have dawned on or piece together.
According to the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=433&v=sxDEEd51RoE
One of the biggest connections is Location but specifically Massachusetts. In Murder House the Harmon’s move from Boston to LA. In Asylum Briarcliff Manor was built there in 1908. In Coven there were flashbacks of the Salem witch trials but also it is stated in the show that the witches in coven fled Salem to come to New Orleans for a safe place. Freak Show Elsa Mars worked in a Boston Circus in the 1930’s and it is where Pepper lived before she was committed into the asylum. Another Location connection is Florida specifically Jupiter, it is where Freak Show took place but in the first episode of Murder House Mrs. Harmon mentioned that she had a family in Jupiter Florida it is possible that she is related to the Doctor that Desriee visited in Freak Show because he mentioned that his daughter was from Boston so there is a chance they are related.
Now another connection are the characters, one character that is related in the AHS series is Lana Winters. Lana Winters is one of the stars of Asylum because she is a reporter that wanted to expose Briarcliff Manor’s darkest secrets unfortunately things turned for the worst for her when she got committed but she barely survived and ended up doing a tell all by writing a book and getting Briarcliff closed in the early 1970’s. She gave an interview with Lee Harris in Roanoke because she was accused of murder. She tried to get an interview with Ally in Cult but was unsuccessful. Billie Dean Howard is a medium that showed up in Murder House and Hotel. She was in Murder House because she was hired to get in contact with Constance son Tate. She also foreshadows Roanoke in Murder House as well. She appears in Hotel to interview the ghost of John who is a serial killer who helps run her out of the Hotel. Edward Mott appeared in Roanoke because he is the original owner of the house. He is the ancestor of the Mott’s in Freak Show including the serial killer Dandy Mott and his mom Gloria. Pepper first comes up in Asylum but that is not where her story begins. She was first in the Freak Show with her husband Salty and they were a double act in the show but when her husband died Elsa sent her to live with Pepper’s sister who is disgusted by her and frames the killing of their child on Pepper so they do not have to deal with their child looking the same way Pepper does and gets rid of Pepper so they do not have to deal with Pepper either which gets her sent to Briarcliff Manor. Now one thing that is probably not noticed is that in Cult on the Twisty comic book Jimmy Darling, Pepper, Meep, and Twisty the clown.
Now this is only a sneak peek of the connections but maybe next week I will give you the rest of the connections. I hope you will enjoy this week’s post and please read previous post. Remember I am Briana giving you insight into the world of American Horror Story
