Fans of American Horror Story were particularly excited for Season 8 thanks to the promise of a crossover between Murder House and Coven. Heading into AHS: Apocalypse Episode 4, we’ve already seen some of the witches from Coven, but rumor has it another old character is set to return in the latest episode.
Early reviews from fans who’ve already watch American Horror Story Season 8, Episode 4 on FX+ have taken to sharing spoilers online, revealing that the rest of us could be in for a real shock.
“My jaw is literally dropped after the appearance of a certain character,” one Redditor said on the Reddit American Horror Story forum.
But who could it be? We don’t know for sure, but there’s plenty of room for speculation. So here are five likely characters who could show up in AHS Season 8 Episode 4.
5. Zoe Benson
Fans already know that Cordelia Goode, Madison Montgomery, and Myrtle Snow are back because they showed up at the end of the third episode of Apocalypse. So maybe Zoe Benson (played by Taissa Farmiga) will return this season as well. She was killed in the final episode of Coven, but Cordelia resurrected her, just as she resurrected some of the survivors, at the end of Episode 3.
4. Misty Day
We’ve heard whispers that Misty Day, played by Lily Rabe in Coven, could be back this season as well. But does she return in Episode 4? And if she wasn’t with Cordelia and the others when they first arrived, where is she?
Queenie is almost definitely going to show up in Apocalypse, according to casting rumors and some leaked Season 8 photos. But Queenie died in the Hotel Cortez in American Horror Story: Hotel. Could she be resurrected as well? And if Cordelia didn’t resurrect her, did Michael, or someone else entirely?
2. Jenny Reynolds
On Reddit, “WYKProjectAlpha” asked, “Anybody else want to see a return of the evil little girl from Asylum?”
That little girl was Jenny Reynolds, whose mother dropped her off at the asylum in Season 2. She was pretty creepy, not to mention a murderer, and could easily be all grown up now and working with Michael Langdon.
1. Elizabeth/The Countess (Lady Gaga)
OK, so this one’s a long shot, especially since Lady Gaga is pretty busy being in highly anticipated movies and all. But I can’t shake the feeling that, whether or not Queenie is back, Hotel will come into play this season. Maybe someone from that season returns in the fourth episode of Season 8. Why not Gaga?
Rumor has it that a beloved character from a past season of American Horror Story returns in the fourth episode of Apocalypse, but unless they’re interested in spoilers, fans will just have to wait until the episode airs to find out who it is.
American Horror Story airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on FX.
