American Horror Story 1.03 "Murder House" Recap

american horror story

American Horror Story premiered its third episode "Murder House" on FX tonight, and if you’re not watching this creepy new thriller, you need to dim the lights and brace yourself for the psychotic drama!  Then again, if you’re too frightened to watch the action, read on for our American Horror Story recap of "Murder House!"

Back in 1983, the younger version of Moira (Alexandra Breckinridge) we (and Ben) have grown accustomed to leering at folds sheets in the house, when the house’s owner makes drunken advances on her.  She resists but doesn’t have time to fight him off before the man’s wife saunters into the room and fires a gun to get their attention:  it’s a younger Constance (Jessica Lange)!  She shoots Moira dead, and then her husband, before collapsing into uncontrollable crying.  Meanwhile, the shot at Moira landed squarely in her now-glassy eye…

Returning to good old 2011, Ben (Dylan McDermott) and Vivien (Connie Britton) argue about money, as apparently Ben’s facetious use of a bad investment tied all their funds up in the home, preventing them from easily selling the house.  Vivien meets with the realtor to talk about selling, who resists defensively but ultimately caves when Viv threatens to sue her unless she find a way to sell the house quickly.  Young/old Moira fixes Ben some coffee before his next session, and in a moment alone finds Constance in the house stealing silverware!  The two share a tense argument about neither wanting to stay "in this world," and Moira asserts that Constance "needs to pay for what she’s done."
