I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. This is the kind of good story telling and pacing that makes AHS such a popular show. Previously in the season we were treated to jump scares. Now we are given backstory as to why all these acts of violence are taking place. There are still questions left to be answered, mainly how Twisty fits in to all of this, but time will tell.

The show stepped away from the Mayfair-Richards family and focused more on Kai. We see what he has been up to over the course of the lead up to the election and where he has been the past two episodes. Evan Peters is killing it as the cult leader. He just has that presence every scene and as he gives his speeches; I can't help but get hooked. I can understand why his followers are doing what they are doing.

I hope we see a lot more of this side of the story than the family side. Ally and Ivy are just a little boring to watch. I pretty much have to hope Ally has a psychotic break just to enjoy their interactions together.

Very Good episode 8.5/10
