American Horror Story players Evan Peters and Frances Conroy found their way into what certainly felt like the finale for Roanoke. To be clear, the season is still going by the title “Roanoke” in its remaining weeks, but this looked liked the end of the line for Matt and Shelby’s harrowing experience with the Mott murder house.
When this season began, I questioned its ability to maintain this story, and format, for the entire run. It felt like a shorter arc and hoped that the season, which had been a mystery for months leading in, would be broken up into mini-anthologies. Separate horror stories. I wasn’t sure, and was assuredly prepared to be wrong, but now it looks like that’s what we’re getting.
