American Horror Story: Open House

Posted on November 17, 2011

Well gosh. Maybe we’re getting spoiled. After watching Vivian masturbate,  Moira bite off a man’s penis, and a single-breasted Nora put a bullet in her crazy husband’s head (as well as one in her own), we actually felt a little let down by this episode. That should tell you something about just how nuts this show’s run has been so far when oral castration, mothers getting their breasts ripped off by undead babies, and watching a pregnant lady rub one out just seems run of the mill to us.

Thankfully, Jessica Lange is on hand to yank the camera in her direction and force it not to move from her, but even then, the only real revelation we got is that she’s got yet another dead kid in that house and said kid is responsible for the rolling red ball we’ve been seeing here and there. Oh, and that she pretty much ordered Larry, the Burned Guy to kill attic kid back in 1994. But wasn’t 1994 when Tate was killed by the cops? Are the events related somehow or did Constance just have a really shitty year?

We know this show is going to disappoint us because it’s the creation of Ryan Murphy, who can’t seem to sustain quality in his shows over time and has a history of overseeing the degrading of a good initial concept into a frustrating mess, most often through the overuse of that old time television writing technique known as “Throw everything at the viewer and see what sticks” (see: Glee and Nip/Tuck). With that flashback to 1994, we got a glimpse of how this future disappointment might shake out. There’s so much backstory already and now we’re being treated to the first real revelation of an unreliable narrator. Apparently, Larry’s story to Ben about killing his family wasn’t true. We’re not gonna lie; that kind of annoys us, happening so relatively early in the story. If Larry’s story wasn’t true; then whose story is? Are any of them true? Are we going to see these sorts of retcons a lot when the writers run out of shocking reveals or write themselves into a corner? Because you once you go the unreliable narrator well, it’s tough not to return to it.

Anyway, Constance’s interest in the house is now fully clear: it’s where she goes to visit her dead family. Knowing that, it’s surprising to us that she got over Addie’s death relatively quickly. Given that the previous two children of hers that died can still be visited to and spoken to every day just by popping over to the neighbors (and letting yourself in), you’d think the permanent loss of one of her children would completely unravel her for an extended period of time. Then again, when the house that shelters your ghost children is threatened with a bulldozer and you have to urge the maid you killed to bite off the buyer’s penis and get help from your former lover, who’s nuttier than a shithouse rat and only has half a face, to kill said castrated Armenian, then maybe Constance just doesn’t have the time to mourn.

In other house news, we’re thinking Violet has some deeper connection to the house than what’s been revealed so far. Constance has an interest in her that seems to go beyond “You’re dating my dead son,” and she appears to be able to order the ghosts of the house around. We hated Violet for most of the run of the show, but we’re starting to feel really sorry for her, what with having the two stupidest, most self-absorbed people on the planet as her parents.

Oh, and twins! Viv is having twins!  Mazel Tov, Harmons! But twins without hooves, it seems. Again: unreliable narrator. Why did the ultrasound tech say her baby had hooves? Why is the doctor (who, admittedly, seems a little suspicious, since she keeps ordering Viv to stay in the house) apparently not seeing hooves? Who wants to bet one twin will be evil and one will be good? Or will she have dual, creepy twins a la The Shining?

And will Viv finally start examining her life now that she’s seen the picture of Nora or will she continue to wander around in a haze, coming out of it only to eat brains, yell at her husband, or masturbate? Granted, we think the house itself is doing a number on her, forcing her not to examine all the weird shit around her. Anyone else notice the enormous slabs of undercooked meat all over the table during the dinner scene? Seems that house is making Viv and Ben a little bloodthirsty.

      I’m thinking there was some investigation into Constance’s parenting after Tate went on the killing spree, and social services found Beau in the attic. Rather than have him taken from her, she decided to have him die there.

      What I don’t get is who lived where and when. Did Constance live in the house, move after Tate died, and then have Larry move in next door..? Because that timeline doesn’t seem to work.

      • MilaXX

        Except if social service found a child chained up and locked in an attic they would leave and come back to remove him. The police would be called immediately and the child would be removed. I know Ryan Murphy likes to create his own realities, but  hopefully even he’s not that much of a hack.

      • Emily Scott

        My thinking was that Constance was charged after Tate’s killing spree, so she had Larry kill Beauregard in the attic so he couldn’t be discovered and taken away from her as well. I was a little puzzled over the timeline as well, but now I think that Larry was already carrying on an affair with Constance in 1994, and when she lost Tate she moved out but insisted that Larry move in so that she could still exert control over the house (since she had such control over him).

        It is a little twisty, although word is that it will become clearer over the next few episodes.

      Boy, that Moira sure gave new meaning to “biting off more than you can chew” huh? I get her reaction though, I would totally bite the wiener off any guy who lied about building me a swimming pool.

      When Tate asked Violet, “Do you believe in ghosts?” I soooo wanted her to answer, “Du-uh!” Poor Violet, of course she doesn’t want to move if it means breaking up with her dead-mass-murderer-boyfriend-with-mommy-issues. Especially when he’s coming along so nicely with his therapy. Forgive and forget, right?

      Who would have guessed that Constance had the Elephant Man hidden up in the attic; didn’t see that one coming at all. But with that little episode, I think she has The Mommie Dearest Lifetime Achievement Award pretty much sewn up.

      Murphy’s everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach is beginning to get on my nerves. I miss Addie; she was the only character who seemed relatively sane and who knew what the hell was actually going on in this mess.

          That was my thought too. 

      • fogharty

        That’s a intriguing idea! Has she been outside the house/off the grounds since Halloween?

        • BerlinerNYC

          Yep. She had a conversation last week with that Mean Girl that she lured into the basement. They were hanging out at the empty swimming pool where the kids skateboard, bonding over how fucked up things are, which led to the pills, which led to the suicide attempt. But your question stands, since I don’t think we’ve seen her outside the house since then.

          Her being dead would be very Sixth Sense (oops, spoilers! lol), but that would be in keeping with the show’s po-mo hyperreferentiality.

      • Anonymous

        I think you may be right.  The last time she was out was on Halloween.  Ben even said she’s just been up in her room this whole time.  And since they can see other ghosts of the house, they can see Violet and not even realize she’s dead.

        • fogharty

          She was at the school after Halloween; the teacher in the wheelchair was being an ass, calling her “sick” because she was looking at the memorial plaque. I can’t remember if she took the pills before or after that. 

          And, by the way, if you don’t want people to read a plaque, then don’t put it on the wall. 

      • http://inkblotphotography.blogspot.com/ Cate

        I like that idea. It’s so crazy that it actually makes sense in this context.

    • BerlinerNYC

      Violet can be annoying, but she’s also the only one who actually has half a clue what’s going on in that house (possibly joined by Viv after she saw the picture at the very end). I wonder if that’s an intentional hommage to how mopey goth Winona Rider was the only one who could see the ghosts in Beetlejuice?

      This episode disappointed me only insofar as there was minimal Dylan McDermott nudity. Come on!

      I loved how the Armenian, once he no longer had a penis, was able to see the older, “non-hot” Moira.

      I don’t trust that doctor one bit, especially since the show is obviously referencing Rosemary’s Baby. But, if she is actually telling the truth about twins, I wonder if one of them is from Ben and the other from Rubber Man? We learn RM’s story next week (oh-so-coincidentally scheduled for November sweeps?).

      • Sobaika Mirza

        Yeah, the penis thing was a nice touch. Funniest was when she was all innuendo with the Armenian and Viv & Marcy exchange those ‘WTF’ looks.

        Hot Moira is fabulous. Wish I could turn the flirt on as easily as she does!

        • Terence Ng

          I just like that they got Frances Conroy to do that. Awesome.

        If they were going to do away with an Armenian, too bad it wasn’t a Kardashian.

    • http://twitter.com/Goldielox73 Goldie

      Didn’t Constance tell Violet that she had five kids?  Addie, Tate and Beau are dead.  Where are the other two?  Are they in the house too?

      Also, Nora said she tried to kill the, let’s say demon-baby, but it wouldn’t die.  Does that mean it’s alive, hiding out in the house somewhere?  In the basement would be my guess.  The thing that killed the twins and attacked Violet’s mean girl friend (I can’t think of her character’s name, I can only think of her as Kinzey from Days of our Lives)?

      • Sobaika Mirza

        I’m pretty sure it’s 4 kids, so we’re only missing one at this point.

      • Anonymous

        I’m was thinking that possibly the medium was her child too. 

      • Anonymous

        I was thinking the demon baby was the boy in the attic with the ball. I know that doesn’t really make sense, LOL, but if Constance is Nora reincarnated, or if Constance is also a dead ghost…I know we’ve seen her in her own house, but maybe the houses have a psychic connection, even though the ghosts only appear in the Murder House. But then the kids that Tate killed have appeared both outside and inside the murder house.

        I think I would have to watch all the episodes again and take notes to come up with better theories ;o
        Otherwise, I will get a migraine…

        I also think that one of the twins is Rubber Man’s and one is Ben’s.

        Violet having died? that’s an interesting idea. At least we can all agree that she has the stupidest parents ever.

        • http://laughingacademy.livejournal.com/ laughingacademy

          The Undead Breakfast Club don’t normally haunt The House. They used their ability to travel freely on Halloween (the same reason Moira was able to visit her mother in that nursing home) to track down Tate in an attempt to get an explanation for their deaths.

          • Anonymous

            I do recall that. But didn’t Violet see one of the girls in her house since then?

            • http://laughingacademy.livejournal.com/ laughingacademy

              I don’t think so. She’s seen the stabbed nursing student and the female home invader who rang the doorbell — maybe you mistook one of them?

      • Terence Ng

        The name ascribed to it on IMDB as of the Pilot is “The Infantata”. And yes, I think that’s what it is, since in an earlier episode Tate tells the story and says that though the Montgomerys died, it continued to live to this day in the basement. According to interviews, the mouth is supposed to be inspired by a leech and its name is a portmanteau of “infant dentata”.

    • fogharty

      Was the penis totally bitten off? Wouldn’t there had been more blood? Did Nora bite off more than she could chew? And do Viv’s twins have anything to do with those little vandalizing twins who only got what they deserved for damaging the Tiffany light fixtures? 

      Inquiring minds want to know!

      • Alina Valero

        yes, i also think that there’s some correlation between Viv’s twins and the murdered twin ghosts in the house! two twins? not a coincidence!!!!!

    • Anonymous

      My dears, I had a totally dissimilar reaction to the twist regarding Burned Man. I was excited from the beginning scene, knowing that we were going to get a Constance-heavy episode and insight into Burned Man’s story. It always sort of the bothered me that the house is this Amityville Horror type place where normal people go insane and kill. To me, that is a tired cliche. I like that his story evolved into something a bit more gritty and real-a true event that made him feel so much guilt and shame that he would rather have Ben believe that he killed his wife and children himself.

      I hope Murphy keeps the reigns pulled tightly enough that the larger scene has been set for a continued slow unraveling of detail. I love watching everything come together.

      God, I’m such a fangirl.

    • Emily Scott

      I don’t know that I’d worry yet about Larry being an unreliable narrator. I think he just lied, and having that lie exposed gives us more insight to his character. As I recall, he told us the story of burning down the house and killing his wife and kids, but the only visual evidence we got was a quick shot of him in the burning room, which was confirmed in the flashback last night. I think that we can trust everything that we see in the flashbacks to be factual, but if a character tells us a story without an accompanying flashback we should be skeptical.

      I believe (and I don’t believe I’m alone on this) that Larry is trying to goad Ben into killing him on the property so that he can be a ghost there, so lying and saying that he murdered his family would just give Ben more reason to do it.

      I agree that I found Violet to be insufferable at first, but the last few episodes have really humanized (ha ha) her. I actually love that she seems to have some sort of talent or ability or something that allows her to relate to the house differently from everyone else. I read in an interview with Ryan Murphy that said that the house helps some and destroys others, which I think is a fascinating concept. In this case it is tearing down the parents, but it almost seems to be healing Violet. I really want to know who the old woman was who told Violet that, “they will never understand you,” and what that means. I find myself really rooting for Violet and Tate, although I’m not sure how that will have anything but a tragic end.

      One thing this episode did do is partially answer my biggest question, which is where did the evil in the house come from? Was it brought there by the original owners in a warped attempt to bring their baby back to life, or is the property itself evil? I think we can now confirm that it is the property, so now I desperately want to know why. (Please, please, please let it NOT be because it was built on a Native American burial ground.)

      One final question/theory: why is Constance able to walk around completely unharmed by the ghosts of the house? What power or control does she possess? Since Violet seems to have a similar ability, I wonder if there will be an eventual showdown between the two. Probably not, but it’s something I would find incredibly interesting.

      • Sobaika Mirza

        I thought that was her grandmother, alluding to the fact that she seems to be made of different stuff than either of her parents.

      • Mary McClelland

        I had wondered that preveiously about his claim that he burned down the house. I was thinking wow this is some amazing recovery work for a house that supposedly been torched. Although we did see him poor gas in the family room (the one with the mural) and lighting it on fire in a previous scene.

        • Emily Scott

          Ryan Murphy says that Larry did not receive his burns in the fire that killed his family, and that we will find out how he did soon, so I’m thinking that we have not seen the last of him setting fires.

      • http://inkblotphotography.blogspot.com/ Cate

        I thought Larry was dead?!?!?

        • Sobaika Mirza

          I don’t think so. We’ve seen him outside of the house plenty of times.

            Yeah, I don’t think he’s dead.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1046681022 Paula Berman

        No, we saw Larry pouring gasoline all over the house and lighting it… but I guess that was just a lie to freak Ben out.  I agree that a power struggle is coming between Constance and Violet, probably over some of the ghosts crossing over– Tate and Beauregard, for sure. 

      • Terence Ng

        I figure Constance is just a mortal woman and that the reason why she goes unharmed is because she has too much confidence and will to be afraid. Like hell is she going to let a ghost push her around, let alone a person. The most insane person is at home in an insane asylum. Thus, it was interesting to see her have to interact with someone in the real world and be rendered powerless (the Armenian and his crass I-could-care-less attitude). All she could respond with was “well, some day it’ll happen to you too” and she had to resort to asking the ghosts and those she despises for help.
        In a similar way, Tate’s revelation to Violet merely gives her the determination not to let the ghosts push her around. He tells her they won’t hurt her if she tells them not to, she has no reason to be afraid, and therefore they have no power over her.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KKLV4TUUULEJB3GH6K27W5NDXI AudraH

        OF COURSE it’s going to be built on an Indian burial ground!  They just said something this episode about Indians, when Constance was giving the history lesson at the Armenian’s house!

    • Emily Scott

      You are correct, there were four children.

      I think the reason that Nora couldn’t kill the Infantata is because it was already a ghost at that point. I think the doctor ressuracted it brieflt with the beating heart, but that it dies shortly afterwards and became the first ghost to haunt the house.

    • Mary McClelland

      This episode was definitely disappointing. What is this baby?! What did it do to Nora? What was it made of? And I didn’t notice her missing a whole breast – I just saw scratches? Was I seeing something?

      Also, I think the ultrasound tech was extremely pious and religiosity allowed her to see something that a mere mortal would not. That was my take on how/why she saw hooves. Where is Constance’s fourth child. Apparently Tate was the only “normal” one, so we’ve got three out of four making the appearnce.

      Most disconcerting of all is where are the ghosts Charles, Constance’s husband, and now Larry’s family? Why do they not haunt the premises?

      And I find it odd the Moira was so easily coerced along with Constance’s plan to kill the Armenian. Clearly she would know the backyard would be dug up anyways to put a condo building in? That REALLY REALLY didn’t add up to me. Am I thinking too much?

      I agree with TLo we’re starting to see the cracks…

      • http://inkblotphotography.blogspot.com/ Cate

        the armenian made it seem like he was going to live in the house and just put a pool in insted of the gazebo. he didn’t say he was gonna make it into condos until he spoke to ben, and then yelled it at constance. moira didn’t know until constance told her.

      • Emily Scott

        I think we will eventually see all of those other ghosts, and that some are simply more active than others. One recapper who I follow strongly suspects that Constance’s husband is the Rubber Man, which is all sorts of interesting. I figured that if they got a reasonably-known actor like Eric Close for the part that it would be more than just the scene where Constance shot him a few weeks ago, so it makes sense if he turns out to have such a pivotal part.

        My new theory? One of Viv’s twins is Ben’s and one is the Rubber Man’s.

        • Anonymous

          That’s a good one! I’m currently obsessed with trying to figure out who Rubber Man is. My bets were on Tate, but Hugo is a def possibility. He’s def blond given the teaser they showed.

          • terekirkland

            I think it’s Zachary Quinto’s character. I suspected it was one of the guys who owned the place before, but figured it was the philandering one at first. Now I think it’s Quinto.

            • Anonymous

              I don’t think that’s possible: Rubber Man killed Quinto and his partner Patrick.

            • Terence Ng

              I don’t think it’s Quinto, because they showed both Quinto and his partner being killed by the Rubber Man when they were alive.

      • Terence Ng

        Charles appears occasionally. He appeared in the basement when Violet learns the truth of the ghosts and asks her if she’s his next patient.

        I thought it was odd that everyone assumed condos would leave Moira’s body undiscovered, since I’m sure they’d still have to dig a basement to lay a foundation. In that instance, I figured Constance was telling the truth, not misleading her, and Moira knew it to be true as well. I guess we have to accept that the writers intended the condos to be a situation where Moira’s body would be undiscovered and covered with concrete (or just brazenly tractored over, shattered, and go unnoticed) whereas a personal house and a pool would leave the bones subject to more attention if unearthed.

        • Anonymous

          Do condos have basements in LA? There certainly aren’t many houses with basements here in SoCal.

          • Terence Ng

            I think even if they don’t, they need a deep foundation set, along with wiring and piping, which would work by digging into the ground, laying the foundation, inserting the support beams and then building up. And given how relatively shallow Moira and Hayden’s graves are, even trying to dig for some wiring and low level piping would reveal them. Plus, if he’s demolishing the house, he’d have to deal with the basement that already exists and dismantle that and all surrounding areas.

        I assumed Nora’s baby was some kind of vampire, since each time they show that story line, the music is from Bram Stoker’s Dracula.  But I could be over thinking.

      I don’t know that Viv is having twins any more than she is having a hoof baby. There are twin ghosts in the house and I think there’s some creepy sort of thing where the fetus is resembling different ghosts of the house at different times (the hoof-thing being that Frankenbaby thing that lives in the basement). Like the house itself impregnated Viv with its essence somehow. Alternatively, she slept with both Ben and Gimp on the same day, so if it is twins it’s probably one from each father.

    • http://inkblotphotography.blogspot.com/ Cate

      did anyone else notice that it’s only the men that seem to see “crazy ginger maid” as “sexy ginger maid”. When it first happened with Ben i thought he was crazy, but Morris Chesnut, the police officers and now the Armenian all see her as young maid. Is that intentional? And how is it that when she says dirty things the women never seem to catch on?

      • Sobaika Mirza

        It’s intentional – I think the manner in which she died left her both hypersexualized and anti-men. And the women do catch on a bit (Marcy and Vivian exchange loaded glances when the maid was talking about liking it deep) but probably think it’s just an old woman being weird.

        I wonder what a lesbian sees.

          A lesbian/Moira storyline would be interesting. I’m sure it’s in the future since they’ve thrown just about everything else at us.

        I believe they explained in an earlier episode as men see what they want to see in women, but women see into the soul.  So, the men see hot, young Moira as she looked when she died and the women see her as she is on the inside. Her soul has continued to age I guess.

        • http://inkblotphotography.blogspot.com/ Cate

          that makes sense. i do remember that “see into the soul” thing. i just remember feeling bad for daddy-o when viv wanted to hire her and he was like, “but WHY? are you trying to make me cheat again?!?!?!” it was hilarious but also really uncomfortable.

      Aside from Jessica Lange, the only reason I watch this show is to see what classic REAL American Horror Story they’re going to rip off next.  This week was more ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ with some ‘The Changeling’ (the George C Scott one) and ‘Beetlejuice’ thrown in.

      Did they just pick up a book of film plots and pull out a handful of bullet points?

        I think they’re homages, not rip-offs. Every murder and concept is essentially an homage to a classic horror moment or type: stuffy Victorian horror, baby horror, pregnancy horror, sexual horror, creepy kid horror, monster in the basement horror, rape horror, serial killer horror, urban legend horror, etc. The show is a study in classic terror plotlines, not attempting to create its own “unique” horror tale.

      Unfortunately, that was probably my last episode. I’ve been good with everything so far, but the castration went way to far IMO. There is nothing funny or acceptable about it. It’s like – actually far worse then – laughing at rape.

        But the college girl getting tied up at knife point, forced to undress and wear some guy’s sexual fetish costume, and then stabbed repeatedly in the back was okay?

      I like your point about the unreliable narrator, but wasn’t it Larry himself who told the story to Ben? That would make Larry the only unreliable narrator, and most of the flashbacks (told without narration) wouldn’t be affected. I guess we can’t be too sure about Constance or Moira.

      • Terence Ng

        True, but it’s a bit of a screw-you to the audience to have him say the house made him a pyromaniac, give a fantastic story about being in prison and cancer that we accept, show that the house is drawing Ben to also be a pyromaniac (all the nudity and fireplace business?), then show Larry acting in his ascribed behavior in-character by trying to burn the house down in the same way in Halloween Part II, only for the writers to turn around and say “Psyche! He was lying! Ben checked out his story 7 episodes later!”

      It lived its life and died. Then Constance gave birth to it again, which is why it obeys Tate (they would be “siblings”). It died again, and now maybe Viv is going to give birth to it again. Since its dealings with life and death are different from everyone else in that it was reanimated, maybe its capable of attaining life over and over.

      The school shooting and killing of Beau all took place in 1994. Since Constance told Violet to not to tell Tate about Addie’s death “He doesn’t react well” I’m strongly thinking that the killing of Beau is what set Tate off on the school shooting, and why he hates Constance so much. So her affair with Burning Man started before he moved into the house.

      The doctor being in on it is very “Rosemary’s Baby.” 

      Also, I’m trying to figure out Constance’s timeline myself. Apparently, she lived there, then moved, then moved back in with Burned Guy when he kicked out his wife. Did she already have Tate, Addie, and Bo, or are they Burned Guy’s kids, too? If not, is her ex-husband/baby daddy another ghost we’ve yet to see? Did he die off-property, or simply run away? 

      As you two said, J-Lange is clearly the most interesting character here, and I can’t wait until her back story becomes clear.
