Last night during "The Name Game", Ryan Murphy promised there would be a clue to the third season of "American Horror Story." However, the episode was packed with so much information that (as well as some clever twists) that it may have just been a blink and miss it type of thing. Of course, with the miracle of the DVR, we are able to go back and revisit things that we might have have missed. That being said, here are a few predictions for for "American Horror Story's" third season.
Warning: Possible spoilers from last night's episode might be used to deduct the clue.
Witches and Voodoo
The clue that would be hard to ignore was the importance that Sister Mary Eunice (Lily Rabe) put on a particular song in her jukebox. "I Put a Spell on You" may not be the most subtle hint, but then again, we are talking about "AHS." Just the fact that the it had the word spell in it screams witch, as does the fact that Mary and Dr. Arden's bodies were both burned. So perhaps we will see a visit to Salem? That would be something, however lets hope the reception is better than the one "True Blood" got when it tried the same storyline.
Of course, the spell could always involve Voodoo, which then would place the story in a very different locale (perhaps New Orleans?)
Sister Jude and Timothy married?
Jude did keep insisting that Timothy was going to take her to Rome and put a ring on her finger. While I doubt that another religion-centered storyline will happen, perhaps we will get a time-warp to Ancient Rome? Maybe even see Joseph Fiennes and Jessica Lange as a married couple? That is, if there is a budget for it. It would certainly be ambitious production to mount; one that would certainly lend itself to Murphy's penchant for wanting to go over the top.
Last season's clue came in the form of a speech Sarah Paulson's character gave, so perhaps Pepper's talk about the horrible way freaks are treated might be clue. There are so many possibilities with this story, but the scariest one that comes to mind are those that were found in movies like the classic "Freaks," which was set in a circus. Like the asylum setting, the circus provides an eerie backdrop on a place that is supposed to be comforting; one where evil lurks just beneath the surface. As with the Rome possibility, the Circus story would be ambitious, but probably right up Ryan Murphy's alley.
Where do you think the season 3 of "American Horror Story" will take place?
