After the lackluster finale of American Horror Story: Roanoke, it seems like Season 7 will be the final season. It looks like the creative streak for new and original horrific material has come to an end. This is too bad, but expected. Since new material seems to be a serious struggle, I'd love for #AmericanHorrorStory to revisit Murder House one last time.
I'm sure I'm not the only one to think that Murder House had by far the best characters. There were so many who died in the house and we were able to see character development and interesting individual stories for all of them. The Harmon family was the one we spent the most time with, but I enjoyed the flashbacks for other characters in the home.
One character I continue to want to learn more about is Tate. I am assuming he's a sociopath and that's why I don't understand him, but I want to know why he shot all those kids at school that day. It bothers me not knowing, but then again, that's usually the case in real life too. However, as viewers, I still think we deserve an answer. I can't be the only one who still wants to know what led up to that horrible decision that day, and revisiting Murder House could finally give us the answer.
Moira O'Hara was another interesting character. She clearly felt objectified while alive (and dead), which was sad to see. One of my favorite episodes is the Halloween episode where the old Moira goes to see her mother and be there for her as she passes away. She seems happy at the end of Murder House with the Harmon family, but no one ever found out what truly happened to her.
It's important to remember that Murder House also had an open-ended finale. There was more of the story to be told at the end of the finale, and it has everything to do with Tate and Vivien's evil son, Michael, who is believed to be the antichrist. Of course, Constance was the lone survivor of Murder House and took Michael with her. She was without a doubt the strongest out of everyone who entered the house. She is the only one who has been able to evade death, regardless of how many hate her in the house and how many opportunities there have been for them to murder her.
Murder House ends with Constance gushing about Michael to her hairdresser and returning home to find that he'd murdered his nanny. At this time, Michael is only 3 years old. Constance is twisted and obviously isn't opposed to murder, seeing how she too has murdered and been responsible for more than one death. In fact, she knows how to cover up murders because she's done it so many times.
If this has to be the final season of American Horror Story, I want to know where Michael ended up. I feel like he'd be similar to Damian from #TheOmen. Surely he'd be curious about his parents and visit the Murder House at some point. Having a serial killer season that could break down and analyze the mind of a psychopath would be incredibly interesting.
