'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' - What do the first two episode titles mean?
As the airing date for the much anticipated season inches closer, the horror gods are blessing us with more and more teasers.
FX has revealed the first two 'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' titles. As the airing date for the much anticipated season inches closer, the horror gods are blessing us with more and more teasers. The first two episodes will be titled 'The End' and 'The Morning After.' Now that we already know that this upcoming season will be the meeting points of 'AHS: Murderhouse' and 'AHS: Coven,' it's not that difficult to decipher what these two titles may mean.
'The End' is an easy connection to the whole theme this season, that is the apocalypse. Cody Fern has been cast to portray the satanic baby in the series, the spawn that will spell doom for all. He is most likely the child of Tate Langdon (Evan Peters) and Vivien Harmon (Connie Britton), who he viciously raped in the first season.
He was predicted to be the reason for the apocalypse in the first season 'Murder House,' and 'Apocalypse' clearly gives him time to grow up. His name in the season is Michael, which is an irony because, in Biblical terms, he is actually an archangel. In fact, in the New Testament Michael leads God's armies against Satan's forces in the Book of Revelation, where during the war in heaven he defeats Satan. This episode could be the one that establishes the characters and what has happened to them since 'Murderhouse' and 'Coven.'
'The End' is written by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, and directed by Bradley Buecker.

The second episode titled 'The Morning After' is directed by Jennifer Lynch with a script from James Wong. This could be the reference to the day after the spawn came into the world or it could mean the day after Cordelia (Sarah Paulson) became the true Supreme. It could also be Ryan Murphy's clever way of keeping us guessing and could stand for the episode being an explanation for a cliffhanger in the first.
It has already been revealed that this upcoming season will be a reunion of sorts - we will see the return of Jessica Lange along with Emma Roberts, Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Stevie Nicks. 'AHS' veterans Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Denis O'Hare and Adina Porter along with Dylan McDermott will also make a comeback on the season.
Lange will be reprising her original role of the tragic and intrusive Constance Langdon. The character was last seen taking custody of her neighbors' satanic offspring in 'American Horror Story: Murder House.' She will, of course, be grandma Langdon now.
Roberts who wowed us as the Hollywood fashionista/ witch Madison Montgomery recently took to Instagram to share a throwback picture that gave us a peek into what the upcoming season is going to be like. The photo was captioned "Welcome to my #coven#ahs8" and featured the gang from 'AHS' season 3 — Sarah Paulson, Gabourey Sidibe, Emma Roberts, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, and Taissa Farmiga in their Coven characters as they posed alongside the iconic Stevie Nicks looking as ready as ever for the upcoming season.
'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' is slated to air on September 12.
