Hi, I'm Tate. I'm dead. Wanna hook up?

YES!

Now THAT was a fun episode.

I'll admit, I didn't believe that Ryan Murphy would actually do it. I didn't think Violet would be dead. I thought it closed too many doors. But I was wrong and that's totally okay.

So Tate knew all along that he was dead. Okay. Cool. Then Violet took the pills, he tried to save her, but she died anyway. Awe. Some.

One of my favorite things about this development is looking back. Remember that scene in her bedroom after she 'tried' to kill herself when Tate said he'd leave her alone if she wanted. He knew there that he had failed to save her and that she had died! I love that! We THOUGHT it was an awesome scene because she knew he was dead and he didn't. But it was the other way around.

This scene at the end of the episode is one of my new favorites of the series. "Hi I'm Tate. I'm dead. Wanna hook up?" Love!

Manipulation can be sexy and all, but this being-real thing might be fun too. I like the idea of the two of them against the world. Yeah, it could get boring for them. But whenever they want a new friend, all they have to do is kill the mail person or something. Plus, they have Phil the exterminator to get to know now...

I have a lot more to say about this episode like Tate's coke use?! What?! And I'll have to deal with his violent deeds too. Plus, we still don't know where the scars on his face during the school shooting came from! But I'm happy with where Violet and Tate are at the moment.

"You died loved." 

Never was there a tale of more woe, huh?

  1. Holyishholyishholyish! Ahhhh! I loved it! I loved that thy went there! I, like you, thought hat Vi being dead would close too many doors. But just the opposite- like they said in the trailer now the Harmons have to stay in the house. They wouldn't leave Violet there alone. Socrazy! But the scene where she sees her body and Tate tells how she died ah! Loved it. Poor Violet. But also can't wait for Viole to beat the ish out of Tate when she learns what he's done. I'm sad tho hat the show has already concluded that ghosts can't work out their issues, meaning Tate ha to stay bad forever? He can't change and be the good Taye that Vi loves? Sigh. And loved how he was the one that burned Larry. I think the coke use scene might be for all of those who keep hoping the house made him do it. So excited to see what comes next. Tate and Violet forever! (literally...poor girl haha)

  2. Also - while the crazy train has already left the station (about two episodes ago), it DEFINITELY didn't reach top speed until now. Ben saw Tate in the Rubber Man suit! That shit is ON.

  3. Oh my goodness I thought I was going to miss out on this week's American Horror Story since I worked late at DISH last night! Good thing I am able to catch up on all my shows and recorded events using DISH Online right from my computer anytime. I knew Violet was dead and seeing her try to leave the house was suspenseful, she couldn't and not to mention her decaying corpse. Tate seems to be a bad guy at heart; I didn’t like him in this episode. If Violet’s parents find out she is dead, they won’t leave the “Murder House.” I can’t wait for next week’s episode; it’s going to be great.

  4. I love him even more after this episode! He really does care for Violet, tried to save her and tried to protect her from the truth of her death! Does make me a little sick about him and mom...I can't wait for nxt week!!

  5. This is why Tate's character is so complex. He's not evil/bad because he still wants to be better or help those he loves, but he doesn't choose the right path to get there. He wanted to help Nora so he killed and raped. Good intentions at first then it got lost in translation. If you look closely Constance is the same way. She really loves her children and sacrificed but she doesn't make good decisions and it becomes rotten.

  6. Wow. So much, so very much in this episode was so intense, for so many characters. Sigh. So it's all good with Our Tate and Vi...for now. Until she realizes about the rapist in the rubber suit. But she may just wade knee-deep into denial and shove that idea straight out of her newly-dead head. I mean, she has a LOT to think about currently. Maybe baby steps are best. And speaking of babies! (HEH!) so! Her Satanic sibling is going to be her step-child(kind of). Ummm weird is that? and so! Tate. Redemption, anyone? I mean the Tate that utterly loves her, that we UTTERLY love,that tried to save her, that worked to carefully protect her, that NEVER has hurt her, that truly loves her - isn't the same Tate that shot up the school-folk, raped her mom, brutally killed Chad/Patrick, not to mention Mr Critter...*is he*??? Mhuahhahahh! No matter. Our Tate may be a killer, okay, and a rapist (hey! he is trying to do some good for Nora! And it was a deception technically not meant to be discovered...)BUT - he is NOT HEARTLESS. He clearly feels for Nora. And redemption. After all, the monster he is has been the creation of his mother. He is eternally what - fifteen? Seventeen? Mommy's doing. And burning Larry? Larry murdered Beau - at Mommy's behest! WTF! Tate became an instrument of swift, fiery justice. So much more here, Larry for one, when he saw/heard his little kids...and him in the end serving a sentence and being (again, but for the final time,denied by Constance...) but this isn't really Larry's blog, nor is it Ben's (wow. THey say 50 is the new 30 and Dylan McDermott is stepping right up to prove it's true. THat was a great fight scene! Love the "magic towel") okay i am clearly carried away, so enough for now...found this interview for more insight & kicks...LOVE THIS SHOW, LOVE VIOLATE!!! http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/12/08/american-horror-story-ryan-murphy-smoldering-children/#disqus_thread

  12. Don't want to be at all gruesome here but there have been several references to the 'scars' on Tate's face during the school shooting scene. I also don't think they were 'blood spatter' and look more like hit or rub marks and scratches. It seems that before the beginning of his drug use scene he may have been up all night and exhibited frequent blinking, before he worked his way up to the rampage. I guess from real life reports of similar situations with potent narcotics, the agitation and delusion that follows such a binge along with his disturbed mental state and intent has been known to cause self mutilation (and he is a 'cutter'). Essentially, he could have been so angry, so out of control that he tore at his own face, maybe dragged a firearm across it, and wouldn't have even felt it or realised, such was his fury. It has been known for real life drug addicts to hallucinate so much that they claw, scratch, punch and bite themselves whilst they are high, and don't feel it at all, such is their disassociation from reality. I found those execution school scenes exceptionally disturbing and yet, having avidly watched AHS from the outset, and rooted for Tate's redemption, it left me extremely conflicted about his character after that point. End of theory!
