the more i think about it, the more worked up i get about how forgotten the Kit Walker/Grace Bertrand relationship is. They are overshadowed by Tate/Violet, which I can’t understand. look at it-
- Kit easily could’ve been Bloody Face, Lana definitely thought so. Yet Grace saw the good in him and trusted that he was telling the truth despite how insane his story sounded. She sacrificed her chances of freedom and her LIFE (escaping with Lana, jumping in front of the bullet) for Kit when she had no proof that he wasn’t a serial killer.
- Grace did kill her entire family, but Kit told her he wasn’t repulsed by her at all. She was seen to be a psychopath and murderer to everyone else, but Kit decided to look past this and understood her when no one else did.
- Kit and Grace legitimately were willing to give up everything for each other. Grace allowed Kit to escape with her, even though Lana was telling her not to. In return, Kit took the 40 lashes from Sister Jude to spare Grace. Later, Kit, who is not a murderer, kills his lawyer to return to Briarcliff and save Grace. Grace then sacrifices herself jumping in front of a bullet that would’ve killed Kit. Finally, Kit allows Dr. Arden to kill him for any chance of discovering what happened to Grace. Even in the end, Kit does whatever he can to get Grace out of Briarcliff so that they can raise their son together.
- Lets not forget how kind Grace was to Alma because she knew how much Alma meant to Kit, which only got her brutally murdered (((WHICH I WILL EVER GET OVER BECAUSE EVERYONE GOT A HAPPY ENDING BUT GRACE BERTRAND WHO REALLY FUCKING DESERVED ONE)))
I just can’t see how people look past this kind of love- when they’re absolutely willing to do anything for eachother (both parties), and understand the other when no one else would- to Tate and Violet, when Tate kind of became insanely attached to Violet and Violet really didn’t give Tate anything but attention. Kit and Grace are hands down my favorite characters in all of American Horror Story and it just kills me to see their stories chalked down to nothing but Evan Peters looking hotter than usual (which he did, but that’s a whole different text post.)
