American Horror sage: Cult Finale Delivers Revenge and a current Beginning – eonline
Bye forever, Kai Anderson.
American Horror sage: Cult‘s divine jerkface got what was coming to him in a few ways during tonight’s finale, starting with his small murder practice party being raided by the FBI, thanks to Ally.
He was going to possess his lackeys murder a bunch of pregnant women, Charles Manson-style, until the feds showed up and took them entire down. Kai confessed to everything, avoided a trial, and got life in prison, which he saw as no problem.
He just sort of reformed his cult behind bars and seduced a guard into helping him with a blueprint that involved giving another prisoner his exact tattoos, killing him, and shaving off his face so everyone would assume Kai was dead.
Then the guard helped Kai escape, just in time for him to point to up at Ally’s senate debate.
But as it turned out, Ally had planned the entire thing, got the guard on her side, and set everything up to be able to account for to Kai that there was one person more powerful than a humiliated man—a nasty woman.
Then Beverly shot Kai in the head, and that was the discontinue of Kai’s cult, but not the discontinue of entire the cults. Ally, with Beverly and her current girlfriend by her side, won the senate race and apparently started her own cult of powerful, excited women. But this cult wears cloaks instead of clown costumes, so we don’t disapprove it nearly as much.
So that’s how it entire ended, which is, in a way, precisely how we thought it would discontinue. Ally knew too well how powerful a cult could be, so she got a cold green cloak and took the concept for herself.
So now that we’ve seen how it ended, it’s time to demand ourselves whether we liked how it ended. Or whether we liked watching it at entire. And that’s a different question from whether it was pleasant or unfriendly, because honestly, IDK.
While most seasons of AHS tend to rep a bit more summary by the discontinue, Cult mostly made narrative sense entire the way up until its final moments. And we kept watching, but after a certain point it was tough to support caring. Once everyone was either dead or fully in the cult, there was small to hold onto and nearly no one to root for.
The fact that Ally was on her way to her very own cult was so clear for so long that it was kind of discouraged to watch her rep there, even whether we did rep to see the very satisfying demise of Kai in the process, and even whether Ally’s cult sounds like one we might actually be willing to join with everything that’s going on.
And while we hated the clowns in the beginning (along with entire those damn holes), we possess to say we kind of missed them by the discontinue. There was a morbid sense of humor at the beginning of the season that was lost somewhere in the middle, when everything got so serious.
Paired with the serious insanity of real life, it just wasn’t very fun to watch, and it was just kind of annoying. Kai was so annoying. Every speech he gave, every word he said was annoying, like entire the worst representations of excited men on the internet. Why was anyone paying any attention to him at entire, we demand ourselves too often.
besides, we’re off to deny interviews with Lana Winters and Rachel F—king Maddow while also wondering what it would be like to watch Sarah Paulson as Lana Winters interview Sarah Paulson as Ally Mayfair-Richards on an entire-Sarah Paulson season of American Horror sage.
See you in season eight!
