It’s been a week now and I STILL can’t get over the season finale of American Horror Story: Roanoke. After all of those twists and turns, I don’t know if my Wednesdays will be the same again. Wednesdays at 10 PM were the only times I looked forward to watching cable television. Now it’ll be back to binge-watching shows on Netflix and catching TV specials when I find them.
Season 6 ended and now we all have to wait until next October for what’s in stores next. It’s only been MERE minutes after the finale and Ryan Murphy already entrapped us with some hints about next season. As a matter of fact, a quick teaser was released after the season finale.
A teaser was posted on the American Horror Story Twitter Page at 11:01 PM last week. The title card read ‘SWEET DREAMS’ with a few seconds of waves moving around the ocean. Half-way through the clip, we see quick clips of the stick figures while the picture flickers in black and white. The title card ends with the sea waves moving among the ocean again. That is the only teaser we have seen so far.
But wait, there’s MORE! Remember that moment when the Spirit Chasers run into Lee at the Roanoke House? At one point, a huge crash spurs everyone into another room. The cast then find a dusty, wooden model ship that fell on the floor. Just like everyone else, I thought that it was just an innocent scene…. but we were WRONG!
What’s the real meaning behind the wooden ship? Is the next season going to take us for a life at sea? Why were those creepy stick figure dolls popping up in the teaser? WHERE…is this show… GOING?
One speculation hints that the next season will be related to one of the various subplots within American Horror Story: Roanoke. Lady Gaga guest starred as Scáthach this season (that crazy witch who took The Butcher and Matt to the dark side!). For those that do not know, Scáthach was an Englishwoman with a Druid lineage that traveled by boat to America. Later on, that sea voyage becomes deadly as the colonists who were hunting her traveled by sea as well. The ship that we saw crashing on the floor could be a major part of the story next season!
Keep in mind that NOTHING has been set in stone so far. Ryan Murphy also teased that fans could expect more in-depth story lines of the characters from American Horror Story: Freak Show for next season. They are just “exploring” this plot, so there is no definitive answer yet. Our only ideas we have to go on are the hint from the season finale and the teaser clip released on the Twitter page.
The teaser clip was suspenseful to watch! I don’t know how I missed this clip last week after the season finale. Teasers were always released mere months after the season finale, but hints are already being dropped this year. It sucks that I have to sit back and make educated guesses about the next chapter. All I have for clues are the big, wooden ship that fell on the floor and the teaser clip to go on for my speculations. Until then, we’ll have to see where the waves sweep us next in the American Horror Story universe.
