AMERICAN Horror Story: 1984 has served up one twist after another.
The Ryan Murphy anthology series has served up the likes of Satanism, immortality and brainwashing in its latest iteration, which pays homage to the classic slasher flicks of the 1980s.
However, it’s the names and descriptions of the upcoming episodes that have indicate viewers are about to contend with a whole lot more chaos.
Back in episode two, fans were left aghast when former Camp Redwood counsellor Jonas was stabbed, only to be resurrected and murdered for a second time.
The regeneration made many ponder if the poor soul was a ghost with unfinished business, unable to leave the scene of his death, or if indeed some kind of time loop was at work.
A new synopsis for the sixth episode of season 9, titled Episode 100, reads: "With the horrors of the night behind them, the survivors deal with the fallout of their choices."
This seems to indicate that the massacre that formed the thrust of the narrative will come to an end halfway through the series, a common trope of former American Horror Story series, such as Roanoke.
However, the description for the following episode, The Lady in White, seems to hit the rewind button.
A hidden chapter of Camp Redwood is revealed. The survivors help a stranded hitchhiker.
If you’re getting a strong sense of deja vu, you’ve no doubt noticed that we’ve seen this exact scenario play out before.
After all, it was Jonas the hitchhiker the group mowed down on their way to camp in the first place – the same unlucky chap who was stabbed and reincarnated almost immediately.
Either Ryan Murphy has got some extensive flashbacks planned, or he’s setting up the woodland bloodbath all over again.
As if that wasn’t enough, the summary for episode 8, Rest in Pieces, reads: "A deadly trio emerges, hell-bent on unleashing a new era at Camp Redwood.
“Our former counsellors desperately try to keep history from repeating itself."
It sounds like history is repeating itself in the most literal of ways, with the same counsellors facing the same murders all over again.
This could explain why Jonas was adamant it was the year 1970, as he experienced a Groundhog Day of the most grisly proportions endlessly.
What’s more, a time travel plot would tie into the witchcraft from the last season, Apocalypse, in which the coven sent Mallory back in time to kill the Antichrist, before he was propelled to power by a Satanic cult.
Speaking of Satanic… remember how Richard Ramirez AKA The Night Stalker was brought back from the dead by Satan himself after being taken out from Mr Jingles?
We suspect one hell of a crossover is afoot.
American Horror Story: 1984 airs on Thursdays on FOX in the UK and is available to stream on NOW TV.
