‘American Horror Story’ Reaches Its 100th Episode With ‘AHS: 1984’ — Here Are Some of the Show’s Highlights
American Horror Story first premiered in 2011, with their season Murder House. Since then, it became an October staple, bringing back horror fans for more creepy characters season after season. Finally, the series reached its 100th episode, during its current season, entitled AHS: 1984. What are some fan-favorite moments from American Horror Story? Here are a few scenes mentioned by Twitter users.
The opening scene of ‘American Horror Story: Murder House’
The season that started it all. American Horror Story: Murder House had a few iconic moments, (Tate Langdon and Violet Harmon’s romance was adorable and super twisted.) The one scene that stands out to some fans is the very first one. When twins ransack the murder house with baseball bats and “You Belong To Me” starts playing, the eerie and creepy mood is set almost instantly.
The fate of these two intruders may not be regrettable. However, everything that comes after this makes American Horror Story: Murder House one of the most beloved seasons of the horror series.
‘The Name Game’ song in ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’
American Horror Story: Asylum was one of the most twisted seasons to date. (Albeit, there’s plenty of competition from the murderous clowns in American Horror Story: Cult.) Fans went from hating Sister Jude to completely feeling pity for her after Briarcliff went under new management. Even though this was somewhat of a defeated moment for Sister Jude, the character starred in her own musical number, “The Name Game.”
In fact, Jessica Lange’s performance as Sister Jude Martin earned her the Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Lead Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie.”
Cordelia becoming the Supreme in ‘American Horror Story: Coven’
Another fan-favorite season, American Horror Story: Coven, had a cast of beloved veterans to the horror series. Jessica Lange portrayed Fiona Goode, Taissa Farmiga played Zoe Benson, and Evan Peters portrayed Kyle Spencer. Actresses who would later star in multiples seasons, included Emma Roberts, joined the cast. Of course, Sarah Paulson portrayed one of the lead roles: Cordelia Foxx, the leader of the Coven.
One of the most satisfying moments of the season was Cordelia performing and dominating the seven wonders. As a result, the character became the Supreme of the Coven. The character made a reappearance in American Horror Story: Apocalypse.
Lana Winters escaping from Briarcliff in ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’
This character might not have been the best person after leaving Briarcliff. Still, how Lana Winters left the asylum, complete with audiotapes and giving the middle finger to Dr. Oliver Thredson, was nothing short of iconic.
Sarah Paulson earned her first American Horror Story Emmy nomination for her role in this season. She earned nominations in the category “Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie” for her portrayal of Lana Winters. Sarah Paulson later earned Emmy nominations for portraying characters in seasons like Coven, Freak Show, Hotel, and Cult. Reportedly, Sarah Paulson could return to AHS: 1984 for a brief cameo, though nothing has been confirmed by FX or the actress.
Episodes of American Horror Story: 1984 are available for streaming on FXnetworks.com and on the FX app.
