The American Horror Story Fan Podcast:  My Roanoke Nightmare
Season 6 Episode 8—  “Chapter Eight”

The anti-penultimate episode of Season 6 takes its toll on the cast of American Horror Story as two more falls victim to the curse of the Blood Moon. Shelby and Dominic suffer horrible fates while both Audrey and Lee pay for their freedom with tooth and flesh. Monet darts from the grasp of the Polk family with two in hot pursuit unaware that Mama Polk and Cain are breathing no more. Unable to escape the horrors of the house trapped by The Butcher surrounding the house, Shelby gives in to despair, leaving Dominic to take the blame once Lee and Audrey return. Tossed out into the hallway alone, Dominic faces the Pigman monster with a gruesome conclusion. The episode is full of monsters, ghosts, cannibals and blood.

Much to Christopher G. Moore’s dismay, Wes Bentley appears in the final frames of chapter 8 as Dylan the actor who played the Butcher’s son in the reenactments. Yes, groans aplenty. The grue-crew as a bit disappointed with this week’s episode as it meanders around feeling like so much padding. While Christopher, Dave, Derek, Doc each admit that there are moments in the show that creeped them out, the show as a whole was the first last-luster hour of season 6 – a pretty good track record for AHS. There is too much Polk and not enough Butcher. Doc ends the episode with a theory that the production team is still behind the madness and there’s a lot of wool being pulled over our eyes. Time will tell.
