The ‘American Horror Story Season 6’, Episode 3 Theories: An Academic Exploration Of American History? [VIDEO]


The "American Horror Story Season 6: My Roanoke Nightmare" has already started raising hairs among its viewers with its 2 episodes down. While episode 3 is coming up, the anticipations and questions of the fanatics only begin to fire up.

The common questions asked are headed by "Will Lee's daughter be finally recovered in episode 3?" or "Is Lady Gaga's character somewhat connected to the Roanoke colony before she turned into one of the witches?", etc. But the most intellectual question yet is "Can the all-new series be safely considered as an academic exploration of American History?"

How academic is the substance of the series?

Well, the main environment of the series is encapsulated within the very real parameters of the lost colony of Roanoke, a very essential segment of American history.

In 1587, a group of over 100 English settlers set up a colony in Roanoke, led by appointed governor, John White. The colony was in need of supplies, so White decided to leave it behind, including his wife and pregnant daughter, in order to sail back to England, Movie Pilot stated.

For one thing, despite the usual artistic modifications, audiences of the series are assured by the hands of writers Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy that the characters are presented much closer to the record. Nonetheless, the only dire punctuations that deem to sensationalize the series are the folkloric overtones frequently found in the narrative and the extra-positioning characters of Lee and couple Shelby and Matt.

After all, AHS started as a horror show, not a history class. Even so, such opus would never be possible without research and a little bit of history check here and there.

What are the possible theories for episode 3?

1. Tomasyn "The Butcher" White (Kathy Bates) is definitely hell-bent for revenge. The implications of integration with the Native Americans by her colony strongly offer a possibility that her character can be talked through to finally returning Lee's daughter in the upcoming episode.

2. Due to the initial introduction of the story of colony, as phrased out by "CROATOAN", more flashbacks can be expected in the upcoming episode.

3. More snippets of America's oldest stories can be expected in the upcoming episodes.

"Ryan, Brad [Falchuk] and their team of remarkable writers have done an amazing job of keeping American Horror Story endlessly inventive, shocking and entertaining and we are honored to move ahead with them on the seventh installment," FX president John Landgraf said in a statement in Buddy TV.
