With the season finale just around the corner the assumption is that things would start winding down but this is far from the case! There has been no shortage of scares all season and with each episode, that lingering sense of foreboding has increased and intensified.
Things reach breaking point in this episode as the past catches up on everyone. No one is spared and with just two more episodes to go, it's likely that no one is getting a happy ending.
This Week's Horror Stories
- We find out the truth behind Larry's disfigured face and what actually happened to his family. Prior to orchestrating the massacre at his school, Tate made another stop beforehand: to Larry's office – with a container of gasoline.
- Constance learns about Travis' brutal death and the string of family deaths and tragedies from her past come back to haunt her, including the "disappearance" of her husband and Moira. We are brought back to the moment the pair met their untimely death and we get to see the lengths Constance went through to cover her tracks.
- Ben finally sees the man behind the rubber suit. He goes to apologize to Vivien and is determined to get her out but Vivien is just as determined to keep away from the house. I have a feeling the baby (you know, the antichrist one) will have other plans.
- Violet tries to run from the house but is caught in a terrifying loop with no way to escape. Tate takes her through some creepy passage ways beyond the basement and it is here she makes a horrifying discovery. Did anyone see this coming? For me, this was the shock of the season!
So what are everyone's predictions? What do you think is the Harmons' fate? What more could possibly be in store for this family?
