It’s time to go get mommy from the looney bin, and Violet is fighting Ben every step of the way. He physically puts her in the car, and she lays down in the back seat so he won’t notice when she disappears at the end of the driveway. With the house to herself (other than the ghosts), Violet calls Constance over. Chad and Pat have made it perfectly clear that they are going to steal Vivien’s babies and raise them as their own. Worried for her mother, Violet wants to speak to Billie Dean – she needs help ridding the house of ghosts – at least those two. Constance, being the traditional homophobe she is, is all too eager to get the boys out of the house. Billie Dean only knows of one instance where humans were able to rid themselves of ghosts: the Roanoke colony of 1590. The entire town of colonists just disappeared mysteriously one day, but were haunting the natives. So the natives gathered the colonists’ personal effects, burned them, and yelled “Croatoan” until they disappeared.
1984: Little Tate pushes his truck into the basement, and is scared by demonic Thaddeus. Nora tells him she’ll protect him and he wishes she was his mommy.
Back in the present, grown Tate hears Nora crying. She doesn’t remember him. Tate tells her he can’t take Vivien’s baby away, he’s in love with Violet. But Nora says she can and will because “That baby is mine.”
But it kept my attention, that’s for sure. And here is why I appreciated the installment so much: the photo above. The cutaway flashes to Violet’s birth, to Ben and Vivien as a happy, non-haunted couple. That’s where this show has surprisingly shined for me all season long. It would have been easy to just make things go bump very loudly every night and for Ryan Murphy and company to just slap together a bunch of random ghost stories and call it a series. That’s what I feared we were in for after a haphazard premiere.
