So an article was released recently that talks about potential clues in the first two episodes of American Horror Story: Freak Show (You can find it here) In which Ryan Murphy states that “there are clues in the first two episodes because I figured out season 5 very early on and I know that the fans love that.”
So I think i’ve found and pieced together using this tweet a unique idea for Season 5.
It’s about space.
1) The lead, Jessica Lange, plays a character named Elsa Mars.
2) The main setting for Freak Show takes place in Jupiter, Florida.
3) This may be a stretch, but Freak Show is set in 1952, which is eerily close to the 1947 Roswell Incident that took place in New Mexico (And with New Mexico being a potential location for future filming, there’s definitely something here.)
4) During the first episode of Freak Show, I remember a conversation between Ethel and Jimmy Darling (Kathy Bates and Evan Peters, respectively) that suggested one could "make a life on a farm, living off of the land". This is a loose interpretation of the quote as I’ve yet to back and watch it, but the meaning remains the same. This directly suggests a theme based on frontier life instead of urban dwelling, which points to a New Mexico themed Season as well.
5) The entire musical piece by Jessica Lange in “Monsters Among Us” was LITERALLY a song called "Life on Mars?", by David Bowie, hinting at a possible alien theme for next year. (But maybe more in depth than the alien theme that occurred in asylum, which i’ll get to later.)
6) This is also merely speculation, but the presence of Pepper in AHS: Freak Show proves that at least two seasons (Asylum and Freak Show) are linked in the same universe. This also suggests that the aliens from Asylum might make a comeback in a future season as they were left relatively unexplored in Asylum.
7) Also, some pictures that could hint at this fact (thanks to this awesome fan who took these screenshots!):
I noticed this when watching as well. Elsa’s landlord’s tie looks strangely reminiscent of a solar system model!
This one might be a stretch, but this lamp looks like a UFO as well!
Note: This is just a little theory of mine, if I missed anything or if you have something to add on, please reblog and share your theory as well! I cannot wait to see how Freak Show turns out!
