SPOILER ALERT: Do not read, if you have not watched "Fire and Reign", the ninth episode of American Horror Story: Apocalypse.
When "American Horror Story: Apocalypse" continued to work back to the actual apocalypse that began the season, the penultimate episode of "Fire and Reign" revealed why there are only six witches in the bunker these days and also how the apocalypse was created in the first place.
The show has returned with two billionaires muttami, Mutt and Jeff (Billy Eichner and Evan Peters respectively) – and yes, they really are their names. Jeff was as sick as the world is terrible, he wanted to burn him and start again. Fortunately, he and Mutt soon met with the Cooperative. Mrs. Venable (Sarah Paulson) asked to play a more important role in their company, also through a meeting with the Cooperative, but she was rudely refused (at the beginning) and told them she had quit.
In the meantime, at Coven in New Orleans, Mallory (Billie Lourd) struggled with her powers and began to rage about Michael (Cody Fern), who came after them. Cordelia (Paulson) assured her that all witches would be safe under her aura cover, but Dinah (Adina Porter) broke off a spell for Michael and Mirbot (Kathy Bates) who mercilessly shot all the witches with her arm. Cordelia, Mallory and Myrtle (Frances Conroy), who were upstairs at the time, survived, but Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) and Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) were not so lucky. Dinah also watched the slaughter with a nauseous expression – but, hey, "thank you" to Satan for helping her son, she would give her a talk show, so she did not feel too wrong.
In a really funny release, it turned out that Mutt and Jeff put the camera in Mir-bot and used it to spy on Michael. They could also control Miriam's speech and suggested that he burn the world and use Mutt and Jeff to help him.
Michael summoned two Coke men who revealed the Cooperative and convinced him that they could start a nuclear war – because the Cooperative was actually Illuminati, a group that according to conspiracy theory is a dark cabal that controls the whole world and has been through the ages. In the world of "AHS", the members are Vladimir Putin, Warren Buffett, Bill Clinton and General Kim from North Korea. Michael was intrigued by the idea of ending the world completely to start his reign, so he gave Mutt and Jeff big thumbs.
As this was happening, the other witches – including Madison (Emma Roberts) and Coco (Leslie Grossman), who perhaps were not at the Academy when Michael attacked – all hid in the mystic's cabin. Misty, by the way, did not play with Stevie Nicks, which was great. The other members of the clan wanted Mallory to perform a spell that would go back in time to help sort out the situation. None of the previous witches ever survived the spell, but Mallory was a game anyway.
Cordelia and Myrtle wanted Mallory to run dry first so that they could test their power without warning Michael. In this way, the show attracted a page from the current manual of Matt Weiner and became involved in the Russian assassination of the imperial Romanov family in 1918. In the version of the royal family of Ryan Murphy & # 39; the youngest girl, Anastasia, was a witch, but her power was not strong enough to save her family – that's why Mallory was sent back in time to help.
Mallory lost her orientation during the first attempt, the family was killed, and Mallory almost died. Cordelia admitted that Mallory would not come to her full power until she (Cordelia) was dead, but Myrtle would not let her do anything drastic, suggesting an alternative idea – ask the wizards for help. Which is drastic in its own way, but let's hope it will not be fatal. Unfortunately, Michael got there first and literally torn the wizards to shreds.
After returning to Mutt and Jeff HQ, Venable was serious about resignation, so the billionaire brothers let her into the plan of the outbreak of World War III and kill most of the world's population. They offered her the position of an administrator of the facility when the world ended, and she immediately felt this thought on her head. Meanwhile, Michael revealed the plan of the Cooperative apocalypse (also known as the Illuminati) and assured them of the survival of them and their families when he outlined a plan to build posts.
Once again, the episode had the impression that it ended quite violently. It seems crazy that there is only one episode, because in the finale of the season there is a lot of land, from the setting up of the outlets, to see what will become the resurrected members of the clan nowadays and, based on the preview for next week, still drawing in more memories for Michael's early life.
"American Horror Story: Apocalypse" broadcasts Wednesdays at 22.00. on FX.
