American Horror Story has been messing with our minds for years. Every season has been layered with so many sub-plots and various characters, and just when we think we’ve figured something out, a new plot twist comes along to blow our minds. One of the biggest suspicions for years is that all of the previous seasons are related somehow, and while there’s been little threads that have tied different chapters together, nothing concrete has happened just yet.
Fans of AHS are certainly good detectives, and throughout the years, there’s been a lot of speculating about the creepy characters we’ve met in each season. Here are X of the greatest AHS fan theories of all time that will keep us guessing for months.
1. Lady Gaga’s My Roanoke Nightmare character is actually the original Supreme.
In AHS: Coven, there was much ado over the identity of the Supreme, A.K.A. the greatest witch of all time. In My Roanoke Nightmare, Lady Gaga played a small role – a Croatoan witch who seemed to have the power of gifting others with immortality. Could it be that her character is actually the original Supreme, tying this latest season into Coven? This was actually confirmed by Ryan Murphy, so anyone who noticed it should give themselves a pat on the back.
2. Flora, Lee’s daughter in AH6, is a witch.
Wtf happened to Flora?! According to this theory on Reddit, she might actually be a witch – and could tie into AHS: Coven.
3. Constance’s fourth child in Season 1 was one of the vampire children in Hotel.
In AHS: Murder House, Constance supposedly had 4 children – and the fourth child was never a part of the first season. One fan speculates that The Countess might have “rescued” her child, and was part of her squad in Hotel.
4. Murder House is also connected to Roanoke.
One highly keen AHS fan noticed that Billie-Dean (Sarah Paulsen’s character in Season 1 mentions the Roanoke legacy in the first chapter. Whaaa.
5. Each season of AHS reflects one of Dante’s circles of hell.
One of the popular AHS theories that’s been around for awhile is that each season of the series is designed to correlate with one of Dante’s circles of hell (Season 1: Lust, Season 2: Fraud, Season 3: Treachery, Season 4: Greed, Season 5: Gluttony). That would be seriously brilliant.
6. Nurses are meaningful.
AHS is all about symbolism and imagery. One theorist noted that nurses appear in every single season of AHS so far – which plays into the “abusive caregiver” motif that the series seems to gravitate towards.
7. Season 7 will involve World War 2.
One fan put together a comprehensive list of clues that lead them to believe that the seventh season of AHS will be set during the World War 2 era, and will involve government conspiracy. That is scary indeed.
8. There’s actually two AHS universes.
There’s a common agreement that all the AHS seasons are connected, but one fan speculated that maybe we’re over-simplifying it and that there’s actually two universes within the series. Additionally, the fan believes that Billie-Jean (Season 1) and Lana Winters (Season 2) are the two connecting characters between the separate universes.
9. Staircases have a huge significance.
This theory points out that every season features a grand staircase – and that each one plays a role in a significant death scene. Could it mean something?
10. The Uber driver in AHS: Roanoke is evil.
If there’s one thing that AHS fans know, it’s that there’s NO coincidences in this series. Both Cricket and Dylan had the same Uber driver in the second half of the series – and some fans think that the driver might have more to do with the mystery than we realize.
