Season 7 of “American Horror Story,” known as “AHS: Cult,” follows the life of a Jill Stein-loving restaurateur named Ally Mayfair-Richards (Sarah Paulson). In the first episode, the character’s mental health takes a decline because she is devastated that Donald Trump was elected to office. Ally’s many phobias, which cause her to have extreme panic attacks, begin to reappear after lying dormant for some time. She is then harassed by Kai Andersons (Evan Peters) murderous cult wearing perforated clown masks that trigger both Ally’s coulrophobia and trypophobia. First, her wife and business partner Ivy (Alison Pill) tries to convince her that the clown cult attacks are hallucinations. However, Ally soon discovers that Ivy is actually a cult member and was attracted to Kai because he could take control of her life. She also wanted to hurt Ally for many reasons, including the fact that she refused to support Hillary Clinton.
While Ally is shocked when she realizes that her wife had betrayed her, some “AHS” fans believe Ivy’s true intentions were obvious. For example, Reddit user took kikifeliz to “American Horror Story” subreddit to express their frustration over the relationship. Here’s why the relationship makes fans scratch their heads.
An ‘AHS’ fan thought Ally should have suspected Ivy before
IN mail, u / kikifeliz acknowledged that “Ally should just be like a weak character” and believes that her wife has her best interests at heart. However, the Reddit user claimed that if they were in a similar situation, they would “suspect that Ivy” was not into anything good earlier than Ally. The “AHS” banner quoted the fact that Ally and Ivy’s son Oz (Cooper Dodson) had an issue of the bloody comic book series, “Twisty: The Clown Chronicles.” In Season 7, Episode 1, Ally catches him by reading the cartoon depicting a clown stabbing his victims. The clown picture immediately makes her overwhelmed. with anxiety. The Reddit user asked why “Oz even did it [sic] the clown’s cartoon at first “and insisted that” Ivy bought it for him, “even though she’s aware that her wife is afraid of clowns. If Ivy really was an understanding partner (no matter how ridiculous Ally’s phobia is [sic] may have looked) then she would have had Oz to read it in the comic book store, not buy it and bring it home COMPLETELY DIFFERENT !!!!!! But instead of seeing that Ivy made this situation possible, Ally was weak and blamed herself, ”read part of the post.
Some commentators disagreed with the belief that Ally should distrust Ivy
A couple of Reddit users weighed in on the matter in the post’s comments section. One commenter seemed to agree with the show Ally should have realized that her wife previously belonged to Kai’s cult. The “AHS” banner pointed out that Ivy made the word “clownz” into their family’s parental guidance password, which should have tipped Ally.
“When I saw it when it was broadcast, I thought it was super buzzing [sic] that her password was [sic] clownz, “the commentator wrote.
However, some “American Horror Story” fans insisted that it was credible that Ally would not suspect that her wife would make her vicious. For example, Reddit user Crymeabrooks noted that the characters “had been in a relationship for more than 15 years.”
“It’s much easier to trust someone you know [sic] for a long time, even if they do not work normally. It’s really not out of the question that Oz borrowed the cartoon from anyone at school. I would not immediately draw the conclusion that my life partner gave it to me [sic] child to send me over the edge, it’s insane, ”the commentator explained.
Although it took Ally some time to discover her wife’s terrible secret, she managed to get out of the experience relatively unharmed. After all, she did it live, which can not be said for most “AHS” characters.
