'American Horror Story Apocalypse' fans spot a Murder House connection between Michael and Adelaide's death
After seeing this new connection between Michael and Addie, things will never be the same - it appears that Michael's death was anything but regular.
'American Horror Story' fans have spotted a new connection between 'Apocalypse' and 'Murder House', proving yet again that Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk really know what they are doing. The last season, which was the eighth in the franchise was a crossover between 'Murder House' and 'Coven', season 1 and 3 respectively. 'Apocalypse's protagonist Michael Langdon was the connection to season 1 while Cordelia Goode and the rest of the witches were the season 3 connection.
After the mind-numbing season finale of 'Apocalypse' a couple of weeks ago, fans were left wondering why Langdon's death wasn't made as significant as they expected it to be. After all, he was the one that the entire story was based on. He was killed on the side of the road as a teenager by Mallory, a witch who went back in time to stop him from ever reaching his present time form. She runs over him with a black SUV and he dies like a common man - something that the entire season hasn't prepared us for. However, with this new connection, things have definitely changed. It appears that Michael's death was anything but regular. In fact, you could even call it poetic.
Fans on Reddit spotted that Michael's death has a connection with Adelaide's murder from 'Murder House'. Adelaide was Constance Langdon's daughter, who was resented by her mother all her life because she had Down Syndrome. Constance was Michael's grandma and she also despised him for his supernatural powers and thirst for murder. Adelaide was killed in a hit and run outside the Murder House on Halloween, leaving her mum absolutely distraught.
One fan noted that both Addie and Micheal almost look the same after they died in the two seasons. "Rewatching 'Murder House', I noticed this parallel between Adelaide and Michael," said the fan pointing out that even their limbs had the exact positioning during their last few moments on Earth. "I thought the same when I watched the finale! I binged MH right before this season, so it was fresh in my mind," said the fan before adding, "Also love the juxtaposition of Constance trying to drag Addie to the property vs. Michael begging her to and her telling him to go to Hell." Despite the similarities in their character, they had one major difference - when Michael died, Constance didn't want him to enter the house and actually die - unlike the time Addie was killed since the house trapped the souls of the lives it takes.
Constance, however, later in the season finds out that Addie never wanted to be around Murder House anyway - something that Michael really wanted to do. Sigh.
