More characters fall victim to the Roanoke nightmare in American Horror Story: Roanoke 6×08, and something happens at the end of this episode that will leave us as incredulous as Audrey and Lee…
Read on for our recap of American Horror Story: Roanoke 6×08, “Chapter 8.”
As American Horror Story: Roanoke 6×08 begins, Dominic and Shelby are trapped inside the house while the real Butcher and the Lost Colony are ready to break in. Shelby thinks of the tunnel running under the house as a way to escape. Their attempt fails miserably, though, when they are attacked by the Pig Man. Back inside the house, Shelby, upset over having killed Matt in the last episode, cuts her own throat in front of Dominic.
Meanwhile, Lee is still held captive by the Polks. She realizes that she won’t get out alive and asks one of the Polks to record a video for her daughter. In the video, she admits she killed her ex-husband, Flora’s dad Mason. Eventually, though, she manages to free herself and kill one of the Polks.
Monet manages to free herself too and runs into the woods, leaving Audrey behind. Luckily for Audrey, Lee saves her life. Audrey takes her revenge by killing another one of the Polks while the rest of the family is out looking for Monet.
Lee and Audrey go back to the house, where they find Matt and Shelby, both dead, along with Dominic. Audrey tells Dominic that Sidney is dead and there is no help coming. Dominic explains that Shelby killed Matt and then herself out of despair, but Lee and Audrey don’t believe him. They lock him out of their bedroom, and soon after, the Pig Man finishes him off once and for all.
As American Horror Story: Roanoke 6×08 continues, the long, terrible night finally ends. Lee and Audrey are still alive! Lee says they have to go back to the Polks’ farm to get the videos of the previous night. Both of them killed members of the Polk family, so they need to prevent the footage from ending up in the wrong hands. Obviously, Lee’s real motive is to destroy her confession that she killed Mason, but Audrey can’t know that.
When the two survivors open the front door to get out, they find the Pig Man right in front of them. Audrey is about to hit him when he tells her to stop and removes his mask. Audrey stares at him incredulously. “Dylan?” she asks.
Dylan (Wes Bentley) is the actor who appeared in the My Roanoke Nightmare documentary as The Butcher’s son, Ambrose. So, what is he doing there, exactly? Was he hired by Sidney to scare the house’s inhabitants, but appeared a little too late? And if that’s the case, where has he been all this time?
