For those who aren't familiar, American Horror Story is a hit US anthology show produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, which employs each of its seasons as a self-contained miniseries that follows a disparate set of characters and settings with a unique storyline, only the cast remaining constant.
Or, so we thought.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly last Halloween, Ryan Murphy confirmed the ever-popular fan hypotheses that indeed, all seasons are linked. This, expectedly, brought around a tidal wave of theses as to just how this had been or would progress to be subliminally achieved, as both fans and respectable news outlets alike provoked many discussions on the topic.
There are many more links and crosses suspected between seasons, some within reason and others a little too far outside the bounds of imaginable reality. But, with a show like American Horror Story, who really knows? I, for one, am avidly anticipating the fifth instalment of the show and the links that potentially will come with it, but, for now, all we can do is theorise and hope for a resolution to all of the queries raised.
