American Horror Story Episode Nine: Apocalyptic Revelations

Last week's American Horror Story continued its mission to shock and awe the audience by adding more layers to the overall mystery of the House and its past inhabitants, which now includes notorious L.A. murder victim The Black Dahlia (more on that later). However instead of keeping the twisted and macabre completely close to home (no pun intended), American Horror Story took an unexpected turn with the reveal of Vivian's unborn twins (or the one fathered by Tate) being a vessel for the Anti-Christ to step foot on earth.

While the notion of an American Horror Story version of Damian Thorn (of The Omen film series) running around, the concept brings up two nagging thoughts, or 'worries,' that came to mind. First, bringing in the Apocalypse seems a bit too ambitious for American Horror Story so early in its infancy, at least for now. It sounds as if it would be ideal for a series finale concept rather than an inaugural season ender, because the stakes are so much higher when you dealing with a Big Bad as well-renowned as Satan himself.

In other words, the AHS Apocalypse could mean the death of a Harmon family member or the entire clan as a whole.
