A Bittersweet Ending
15 November 2018 | by XxxDaniel94See all my reviews

Season 8 has been the best American Horror Story season since 3, it has been thrilling and entertaining and brought back what made AHS good to begin with.

Apocalypse Then is a great conclusion to the season, with everything wrapped up nicely, with a good bittersweet ending. It was good seeing old characters appear once more, even if it was very briefly, which makes me think they might appear again in the next season, if they decide to make a direct sequel to this, but I doubt it.

The character of Michael was the best character this season, and the best since Fiona in Coven. He was intriguing, charismatic, psychotic and very well acted. I hope to see the actor in the new seasons.

I enjoyed how this season ended, since we haven't had a bittersweet ending since season 2, and I was glad that despite it ending sort of well, it will all come crashing down again. I think they have made it clear this season, that the Devil is the main antagonist, and maybe they will bring him as a main character next season, I think that will be thrilling.

Apocalypse was incredible, and this episode a great ending, which makes me long for the next entry, something that the show hasn't done in years. Finally back to form!
