American Horror Story: Burn, Baby, Burn

So. Awesome scene number bazillion last week was Tate busting into Larry's office and setting him ablaze. I'm enjoying that whenever we have some twisty mystery on the show, the answer ends up being "It's Tate!" 

Who's Constance's normal son? It's Tate! Who is Rubber Man? It's Tate! How did Larry get all them burns? It's Tate! Who's the cutest little ghostie this side of the Mississippi? It's Tate!

People are really into Tate's coat. It's a nice, workable coat. Especially for when playing with fire and shotguns. I do appreciate the change from his usual Seattle grunge wardrobe which must be insanely hot and itchy in Los Angeles.

Also! There are NO scars on his face in this scene. There were lots of scars on his face during the school shooting scene. You can see them here. See? What's the deal? Where'd they come from? At this point, I'm leaning toward them being self inflicted because it would be weird if he returned to the house between lighting Larry on fire and shooting up the school. No need for inefficiency when running your homicidal errands. But initially I thought they were Infantata related. Speaking of the Infantata - where is that little bugger? Haven't seen him for a while.

Evan Peters as Tate Langdon Stop complaining. I'm way cuter than the Infantata. American Horror Story

Oh Tate. I actually feel a bit bad for Larry in this scene. He seems somewhat pleased to see Tate at his office. But he'll never have the Take Your Son To Work Day he hopes for. Instead, he gets Have Your Son Set You On Fire At Work Day. That's almost as awesome. But not quite.

    I almost choked out my food, I LOL'd so hard. :-D Well played, River Styx, well played. NICE! And the coat *is* awesome. And the boots.
    Is it wrong I want a critique of every scene? They were all so good. This show is such a rare gem. It's savory, and rich, like a good piece of roasted pig flesh from the dinner table.
    (I saw online someone mentioned the seeming obsession the show has with pigs. Piggy Piggy, the roasted pig flesh, the Offal that Constance's mother preferred made with pork...the unspoken Manson family associations in Home Invasion (not to mention the very name of our Favorite Sweet-Sick Ghost Boy)...interesting, non?

  9. its called a frock coat... its a reproduction of the the type union soldiers used to wear. some people argue that its color is either black or prussian blue. i am yet to find one exactly like it, but there are some that are fairly close if you look at reenactment websites
