American Horror Story: Connected
Start writing a post

Have you ever wondered how all of the seasons of American Horror Story are connected? Clearly they are not in a chronological season by season order... But creator Ryan Murphy says there is a connection between all the seasons. The thing about Ryan Murphy is, he likes the art of mystery, which means he will not flat out say what the connections are. Thit is my attempt at unravelling the mystery. Major SPOILERS ahead!

1. Madison Montgomery & Dr. Charles Montgomery

The original owner of season one's "Murder House" was Dr. Charles Montgomery. He was a doctor for celebrities and he was very vain much like Madison Montgomery, who actually was a self-loving celebrity in Season Three, "Coven". They are also both from Los Angeles. Although Murphy never actually states it, it seems like a plausible idea that Madison Montgomery is a direct descendant of the infamous doctor.

2. Pepper x Two

Pepper is the first character we see in American Horror Story appear in two different seasons and she even had a connecting story line. Pepper first appears in season two of American Horror Story as the "freak show attraction" that killed her sister's baby. Season two, properly titled "Asylum," comes before the fourth season, which is where we see Pepper appear next. In "American Horror Story: Freak Show" (the fourth season) Pepper is in the, you guessed it, freak show and she is framed by her sister for killing her baby.

3. Elsa Mars and Dr.Hans Gruper aka Dr. Arden

In "AHS: Freak Show" we have the mysterious freak show manager, Elsa Mars, who flashes back to the days she came into contact with a menace who sawed off her legs.This menace was named Dr. Hans Gruper, who we found in "Asylum" was the original name of Dr. Arden. If you paid attention in "Asylum", you would notice a trend Dr. Arden has and that is his sick obsession with experimenting on humans.

4. Sister Mary Eunice

Before she was possessed by Satan, Sister Mary Eunice was actually quite sweet and innocent. She was very dedicated to Briarcliff, which was the name of the asylum in "Asylum," and she was the woman who came to pick Pepper up in "Freak Show."

5. Murder House in Season Five

If you have been watching the last few episodes of the current season of AHS which is "Hotel", you would have noticed that The Countess (played by Lady Gaga) paid Dr. Montgomery a visit for an abortion in the infamous "Murder House." This does not come as a shock since both seasons are themed in Los Angeles and The Countess is immortal, meaning she was alive at the same time as the "Murder House" doctor.

6. The Realtor

The same woman who sold the Harmon's their home in "AHS: Murder House" is in "AHS:Hotel" which is not shocking since both seasons take place in modern day Los Angeles. The funny thing is, most people did not catch the reference she made to Season One ("Murder House") and that is when she said, "I had to put my dog down. He came to me through very unfortunate circumstances." also known as, he witnessed his entire family (The Harmons from Season One) be murdered.

American Horror Story's Mystery:

Ryan Murphy did a splendid job creating "American Horror Story." This show evokes a lure of suspense for its viewers. Many people have already noticed the things I have listed above and many people have not. Next time you watch AHS, pay attention and put together the pieces, think about what I have told you and maybe you will catch something I did not.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
