American Horror Story Cult – S:7 Ep:2 – “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” Edition

The group is back to discuss this week’s AHS.  So far, not a lot of positivity going around,  but even worse, not much of a plot.  I sense some of us are struggling to truly enjoy this season like we have in season’s past.  Still, we will trudge on!  This week, we have Dom, Melanie, Cece, and Teddy helping out.   I should note that this isn’t the typical 9 Deuce blog because there’s not enough substance for us to answer that many questions on a week to week basis.  Finally, any comments in the blog in bold are from Kent.

Please check us out at the actual 9 Deuce website, on Facebook at facebook.com/9deuceblog , on Twitter @official9deuce, or Instagram at Official9Deuce.  Share this, like this, write us an email with a question at kent@9deuce.com.  Thank you.

 

1  Was Ally on the verge of cheating on Ivy with Winter in the tub?

Melanie:  I was more concerned with Winter not rolling up her sleeves.  (Yeah, you bring up a great point and it really bothered me in a weird way.)

Dom:  Yes.

Cece: Yes. It was gross.  (Why gross?  It was fantastic!)

Teddy: she was definitely being groomed by the nanny

Kent:  My little head thought so, so my big head is going to concur.

 

  1. Was that the most ridiculous bathroom that you have seen in a TV show?

Melanie:  I thought this bathroom was amazing and one I want to have…therefore the most extra bathroom in AHS history.

Dom:  Sure.  I don’t have a bathroom fetish or anything so I don’t stalk shows to see the bathroom layout but hey I’ll say yes  (Are you implying that I have a bathroom layout fetish?  If so, you may be on to something.  Seriously, the room deserves recognition damnit!)

Cece: I can’t recall. Probably the ones in AHS. They’re all fun!

Teddy: omfg that bathroom is soooooooo extra  (Millennial talk right there.)

Kent: I am struggling to think of a more unique bathroom, but I got nothing.  I am hoping others think of better examples.  Just the layout was incredibly unique to me.  Also, I have no idea why 2 people used the term extra, and I’m not going to ask why.

 

  1.  Did the guy with the ladle seriously think that he was going to win the fight against Pedro, who had a knife?

Melanie:  Machismo is a strange animal.  (Especially with ladles, so strange.)

Dom:  It’s not the size but how you use it. Nah, it’s always about size.  (That was an impressive ladle, I’ll give you that.  How one can use it, well, I’m at a loss and may not want to know of the varieties that one can use it for.)

Cece: Nah. But then again, he’s white, so he probably thought so…  (If he was black, would he have not tried using a ladle?  What utensil would he have used?)

Teddy: he was just another asshole feeling empowered by the political climate.  (I assume it was warm in there.)

Kent: In the moment, his anger blinded his thinking, I think.  That or he thought it would be “Everybody beat up the Pedro day”.  Kinda silly scene in a show that has been chock full of them.

 

  1.  Give me your thoughts on the new neighbors.

Melanie:  Love them! Billy Eichner is hysterical. (I had no idea who he was, then I looked him up and know his voice from Bob’s Burgers.  Apparently I’m the only person who is not familiar with his work.)

Dom:  I keep waiting for him to be nasty as he is in Difficult People.  And then I’m so waiting for the “teens” from Popular to show up.  But so far I like ‘em  (I’ve never heard of these shows that you are referring to.  Yes, I live under a rock.  I showed you that on Sunday.)

Cece: I love Billy Eichner. And he’s playing a good role. I think they’re a little odd but fun.  (Odd but fun is a good representation so far, which is cool.)

Teddy: I love the irony in making Billy Eichner a gun toting right-winged person (he has a staunch stance against it irl) also Kent she doesnt like to touched due to her cancer (billy explained it)  (A moment of honesty.  I was falling asleep during it, which also probably explains just how bad my questions are this week.  Thank you for the head’s up, I totally forgot that was mentioned.)

Kent:  I found them interesting at the very least.  I liked how they didn’t mind just saying whatever.  I am curious if she also gets a free weekend to get her sex on, or if only he gets the weekend.  I am curious how the bees will play a role in this season.  Most importantly, this just seems like a convenient way for Murphy to include man ass, probably on a homoerotic content.  Meanwhile we have lesbians and I doubt we will see a single female butt cheek or breast.  We (Me) demand equal opportunity!

 

  1. Ally killed Pedro. We all saw that coming….right? Name another death in the AHS franchise that was obviously foreshadowed.

Melanie:  I having a hard time thinking of one in particular. This season has zapped all of my excitement from the show. 

Dom:  My desire to keep watching.  I’m sooooo sick of this clown thing. MOVE ON Already.  ( and are we sure he’s dead?)

Cece: Probably Elsa Mars in Freakshow.  (That is a good one.  I almost chose Fiona in Coven.)

Teddy: I call a lot of things in this show. Its what I do. I would say biggest foreshadow for me was Wes Bently in hotel being the killer.  (Yeah, I nailed that prediction during the first episode, which people can vouch for and call it a “lucky guess”, which it totally was.  He was the only one that made sense if you only watch the first episode though.)

Kent: Myrtle Snow in Coven.  I loved that scene!

 

Were you Kentertained by this week’s episode?

Melanie:  Nope

Dom:  This is so slow moving.  And again Stop. With.  The. Clowns.

Cece: Meh. It was kinda boring and annoying.

Teddy: I don’t think it was boring but predictable to say the least

Kent: I wasn’t as irritated, but nothing really happened.  This was a typical second episode in a season.  Just stuff to build up the story.  We may get another 2-3 weeks of this before it picks up.  Look at how long it took for Hotel to build up before it got great.    This still has potential, and it was less political at the very least.

There you have it ladies and gents.  Another week of people being relatively disappointed.  I hope that it picks up because I struggled to come up with questions this week.  I may have to lower the bar again if this nonsense keeps up.
