About the Chapter

As a story, it is confounding, however on a visual level it is not so impressive.

Necro does indeed have a story to tell, which is not anecdotal as has been the case with the previous episodes (barring Dollhouse). It has a quite good narrative build-up and manages to complete the story well, within the duration of the episode. It is not hastened, and succeeds in developing its characters in a way that does not appear forced.

It startles as all chapters in this series do, but on this occasion the “shocker” adapts well into the story proving that the screenplay has been well crafted. With that said, the visuals are not outstanding, and we are under the impression that the director has not given it high priority to seek peculiar frames nor distinctive takes that would have given the story that macabre cinematographic feature that is present in the screenplay.

That dissonance between the visual and the actual narrative allows the spectator to focus on the well told story (a macabre story, true) that is good in itself and impacts, and, finally, gives us one of the best chapter endings in the entire two seasons of American Horror Stories.

This was a very good episode that has assisted us in recovering the faith in the potential of this series, which by its own doing has resulted so uneven as entertainment, week after week.
