"Cult" TV Show Returns as AHS Premieres

Cher is rumoured to be a part of new American Horror Story cast

Stick with The Inquisitr for more American Horror Story (AHS) spoilers, news, and casting updates. Meanwhile, Billie Lourd's character, Winter, seems to be both at odds with and in cahoots with Kai.

The premise for this season is, at the moment, a little complicated. "What do humans love the most?".

The outcome, however, doesn't just unsettle Ally, but also unleashes a series of dormant phobias, including her fear of (sigh) homicidal clowns. Winter Anderson, whose motives are nearly certainly duplicitous.

Cult premiere had its fair share of weird scenes - like when the gang of clowns terrorized Ally (Sarah Paulson) in the grocery store - but one of the most memorable moments also happens to be the most amusing: that Cheetos scene. After all, he does it so well!

This season definitely seems to be exploring fear and reality itself. He pleads with the city council not to increase police presence in their suburban MI town, but to let the violence and chaos run its course-positioning the few who are not afraid to lead the scared, sheep-like masses. Most revealing, though, is a speech he gives at a city council meeting that ends with this line: "There's nothing more risky in this world than a humiliated man". A cult leader (Evan Peters) is behind the activity and isn't afraid to press the flesh.

For our money, the one to watch might actually be Winter. Why? To refresh your memory, it was a sunny summer day on the season premiere of Freak Show.

Murphy cracked of the premiere grocery scene, "I think we've all turned to rosé a lot in the past year". "I dropped out of Vassar". And we haven't even mentioned the homicidal clowns. When the two leave for a romantic evening at their restaurant - that's eventually sullied because Ally starts seeing the clowns again - Winter shows Oz the "dark web", filled with videos of murders and other grotesque sights. Triple Dongerface is terrifying from any angle, even when he's not scootering toward you with a knife in his hand or appearing next to you in bed - and we've identified him thus far as the leader of this season's multitalented pack o' horror clowns. But there are subtle differences in her character throughout the episode, depending on who she's talking to. Are these clowns real? They kept going, and kept roping people into the endeavor, because they found it be among the funniest films ever made. His mothers reveal that their son often has night terrors, during which he does not realize he is asleep. The detective working the dead-neighbor case says it seemed like a murder-suicide. "I feel that in this country, probably in my own bubble, there was a sense with the election of Barack Obama, like, 'Oh, things are changing; people are getting along; diversity is happening.' That's when my career started to happen".

When left alone, Oz sees several clowns arrive at his neighbor's home. That's where Winter comes in.

"It really is about the cult of personality that can rise in a divisive society", Murphy said "That's what this show is about". The premiere includes an homage to Season 4, the clown finding an unsuspecting young couple hooking up on a lawn and terrorizing them to, well, pieces.

Showrunner Ryan Murphy stated that he chose the election as the jump-off point because it showcased the fear that was prevalent during the time.
