We officially have a title for season eight of FX’s American Horror Story. Coming this September: Apocalypse. Upon release, I think a good chunk of people were wondering how that title related to the Murder House/Coven crossover planned for this season. But then the first teaser images were released.
American Horror Story teaser images always really set the mood for the upcoming season, and season eight is no exception. Lucky for us, we’ve been given two. Both images show an elongated midnight black hand with extra long nails extending towards a red glossy baby with creepy nails of its own. It is an unsettling image reminiscent of Rosemary’s Baby, or maybe even….Michael Langdon?
Michael Langdon is the antichrist of the American Horror Story universe. Michael, the son of Vivien Harmon and Tate Langdon, came into this world at the end of Murder House. As medium Billie Dean Howard (Sarah Paulson) foretold in Murder House, “A child born of human and spirit will usher in the end of times”. Could the end times be coming this September? Last time we saw Michael he was an adorable three year old who was way too happy about killing his nanny. Michael was all smiley and blood splattered, and who knows how his grandmother Constance Langdon dealt with that.
If this season is focusing on young Michael, it will be interesting to see how the Coven storyline is pulled in. While we know some of our witches will be back, we still don’t know which Murder House characters will be making appearances. Since a majority of the Murder House cast of characters are ghosts, will we need to return to the infamouse house this season? Let’s hope so!
