American Horror Story Season 7 Episode 8 Recap: Winter of Our Discontent

by at .

With a handful of episodes left, American Horror Story is going for the jugular as we approach the end of the season. 

When American Horror Story Season 7 Episode 8 got underway, the ladies were still questioning whether Kai was loyal to them now that he was getting closer to his plan for world domination. 

Winter wanted to remain with her brother because she felt like ditching family was not a good idea, and that her own brother would not stab her in the back. 

Well, this is Kai, and he's already proven he will do whatever needs to be done to get his point across, and you can tell Evan Peters is having a lot of fun with that. 

Winter recalled Halloween in 2015 and revealed she and her blue-haired brother thought it would be fun to cause some trouble online. They were invited to an event at an old farmhouse after trolling social justice people online.

The party was hosted by a man named Pastor Charles, and he was ready to kill three people who had apparently wronged society. Winter noted that Kai wanted to save everyone. 

He did so and swiftly murdered Pastor Charles. Winter said that Kai was never really the same after that encounter. 

“He realized that you can't save everyone,” Winter said.

“So it’s better to burn it all down and build a new world.”

Thus, we have a method to Kai's madness, you guys! Then, things took a turn when there was an awry threesome between Winter, Kai and the detective in the hopes of conceiving a baby. 

“As he enters you, I will enter him,” Kai explained.

“That way, you will remain pure and unsoiled.”

Okay then. We don't even know what is going on with this show at the best of times, but this was a step too far. The detective was later killed by Winter after he tried to rape her. 

Back in the world of Ally, Vincent confided in Ally that he was Kai's brother and everything got out of hand. Ally wasted no time in telling people about Vincent. 

She wanted revenge, and she wanted it now. Unfortunately, she was working with the cult, so Kai murdered his brother in front of the entire cult to reiterate the fact that he was in control.

Um, okay. We get it, Kai.
