American Horror Story: Apocalypse 8.5 Review - 'Boy Wonder'

I used to be informed forward of time that this may be the week Stevie Nicks got here again to sing. Why they felt the necessity to closely crimp her hair is past me. Depart that silliness to flamboyant babes like Myrtle, that’s what I say. I made a decision to get that business free FX, and it’s a superb factor I did. This week’s episode is, in reality 39:59. When performed on TV, it runs sixty-4 minutes — which suggests it’s crammed to bursting with commercials. A traditional hour of programming is forty-two minutes with intro-outro. So, this episode has six further minutes of commercials added to what’s already eighteen minutes of commercials per hour. Come on FX, Be Greatest! That stated, right here there be spoilers.

We start with Cordelia shambling round a wasteland. Nobody is round, her powers are ineffective, and she or he’s graphically devoured by zombies. I do take pleasure in a great zombie chomping. Alas, this was merely a imaginative and prescient. American Horror Story does love to point out us cool issues even when they aren’t truly a part of the story. I dig this, however also can perceive why followers are divided on it.

The returned women of Miss Robichaux’s are somewhat shaky. Queenie isn’t positive the place she even is. Getting back from the lifeless needs to be fairly jarring in case you’re not a zombie. Due to her imaginative and prescient, Cordelia decides that Michael ought to be given the check of the Seven Wonders in any case. Is it dishonest to take this check when you already know you’ve magical inferno blood? Does that rely as witchcraft (warlockcraft?) if it comes from such a darkish place? The Warlocks appear positive that Cordelia is resistive to Michael as a result of the lads would lastly be in cost, whereas she has the proverbial ‘bad feeling about this.’ In her imaginative and prescient, she noticed a terrifying demonic white face. Is that Michael? Might it’s Devil?

Myrtle. Is. Pissed. No approach does she need Michael examined. Can’t say I blame her for that, or her dislike for Mark Zuckerberg. Elsewhere within the coven, Mallory (the apparent subsequent Supreme) is proven to have the ability to heal wounds and lift the lifeless. Seeing Coco’s arrival on the Academy was hilarious, although it kind of looks like she won’t even have powers and Cordelia was humoring her to get her father’s cash. I actually hope that doesn’t transform the case. In all probability not, as a result of that may be predictable and boring—two issues American Horror Story just isn’t. Backside line is that Cordelia is fading, until Michael has cursed her with that massive nasty an infection-wanting factor, which is completely potential.

John Henry Moore is very involved about Michael. What’s extra, in contrast to Ariel, he’s not so energy hungry that he’s ignoring very actual emotions of worry and doubt. John is off to speak to Cordelia after which to get extra information on the Boy Marvel. He doesn’t even make it out of city, as a result of he’s murdered and incinerated by Michael’s Satanic guardian. We study that Ariel is ok with John’s homicide, as long as Michael doesn’t reveal ‘who his father is.’ Significantly although, by no means let Kathy Bates close to your ankles. She’s confirmed she will’t be trusted. She can also’t be trusted round Cheyenne Jackson, since that is the second time she’s killed him. Wait, or third? Was she in on killing Will Drake? I’ll have to observe once more and see.

Does Michael’s “father” imply ghost-Tate Langdon? Lucifer? Heck, there may be individuals who consider the Alpha is Ben Harmon’s child. BTW, in Homicide Home, Michael known as an Alpha by the obstetrician who explains what’s occurring with the twins. In order that’s telling. Makes you marvel simply how far prematurely they’ve been planning issues. The ‘wizards not whizzes’ line was hilarious. Such excellent burns on this present. My fave dialogue of the night time needed to be, “I have humored you men and coddled your fragile egos. But in no way does that mean you actually have a say.” Boy, the Twitterverse would have a subject day with that if this was an RL state of affairs.

Michael’s efficiency within the Seven Wonders went off and not using a hitch…till Cordelia determined to ship him to retrieve Misty Day. Ariel is livid at what he sees as a unclean spitball. However the concept of her spending eternity in frog-dissection-hell made me hope he might do it. After a business break, he does. Then he kills the instructor, bewitches the youngsters, and usually makes an enormous bloody mess. Apparently, there’s a child named Tommy whose private hell is that he has to tattle on individuals for all eternity. When Michael and Misty each return, Cordelia declares him the subsequent Supreme…

…however she’s mendacity. We discover out later that she solely administered the check to see how robust he was. Cordelia believes she has a bonus as a result of Michael gave her a few of her women again. Unsure I look after that type of chicanery on her half, and it appears apparent that any of those individuals might kill the others with a flick of a finger.

Stevie Nicks is again for a musical quantity. It does make sense that Cordelia would name her for Misty. BD Wong accompanying her on piano was pleasant. Stevie doesn’t go for these loud, excessive notes anymore. Nevertheless it’s nonetheless superb to see her nonetheless singing and delightful and imposing. Her rendition of Gypsy was nice, if subdued. Sorry to be petty, however I hate the crimped hair. The place are we? Smallville? Michael appeared envious of the eye Misty was getting–like he may simply kill her on the spot. I’m kinda stunned he didn’t, and nonetheless assume he may kill her, or any of the witches. Perhaps that’s why we haven’t seen Zoe, Misty, or Queenie sooner or later.

I’m loving Cordelia’s large poise throughout this entire ordeal. Even after passing out, she isn’t intimidated or defensive round these dickish warlocks—even after Ariel insults her mom, Fiona Goode. Discover that Cordelia didn’t ship Michael to convey her again from the afterlife. In the long run, Cordelia has some nice details about Michael to maneuver ahead—however she needs to know extra. She’s sending Madison (whom she acknowledges has no true loyalty to anybody however herself) to Homicide Home to get extra information. Does this imply we’ll have an look from Billie Dean Howard? Ariel, who has lastly admitted to doubts about his good-looking prodigy (until he’s mendacity), goes too.

At this level, solely Pennypacker and Chablis appear to simply accept that Michael is an okay man. Everybody agrees that he’s highly effective. However Cordelia, Myrtle, John, Misty, Queenie, and Zoe all appear to have doubts about him. Oh, and Ms. Meade. Her loyalty to Michael is clearly unwavering. So why does he permit her to die? Why convey her again as a robotic and never an individual? What prompted the apocalypse within the first place? Who’re the Cooperative? Why don’t they care that nearly everybody within the outpost was murdered?

After a sluggish and annoying begin, this season has turn into superior. We nonetheless don’t have solutions to lots of our questions. I’m assuming it was Mallory who landed the airplane safely in Ep1, however how might she do this with out understanding who she was? I would like particulars. Does Coco actually have powers or am I tolerating her for no good purpose? If we return to the Homicide Home, what does that imply for…properly, everybody? We all know Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton are gonna present up, which I’m stoked for. What sort of temper will they be in, I’m wondering?

See you’s subsequent week!
