Top 10 American Horror Story Episodes

Now halfway done with its sixth season, American Horror Story has once again triumphed on the small screen and made our Wednesday nights even better. With Halloween right around the corner, there is no better time than now to recap the top 10 best episodes in the series. From the spooky, to the funny, and to the outrageous, AHS has covered it all. Here is a list of the top 10 best American Horror Story episodes - excluding season 5 because admit it, that was a train wreck.

10. The Dead (Coven)

What's awesome about season 3 was that it was very lighthearted, so even if it was meant to be scary, you probably ended up laughing anyways. From Evan Peter's opening quirky frat boy tattoo parlor scene to Angela Bassett locking Kathy Bates in a cage while wearing anEd Hardy bedazzled sweater, this episode was classic AHS at its finest.

9. Curtain Call (Freakshow)

The season 4 finale was one of those episodes that was hella intense, but had a cute ending to balance it out. Watching the freaks get their revenge on Dandy was oddly satisfying and was what every viewer wanted to see since the premier. And even better, you couldn't help but to feel warm and fuzzy inside after watching everyone's happy ending.

8. Bitchcraft (Coven)

There is no more iconic AHS image than the one above and there is no more iconic episode title than this one too. In the season 3 premier, we fell in love with Jessica Lange and her sassy menagerie of witch disciples and wished that we could have a squad that slayed as much as hers. But on a dark note, you gotta admit that the opening scene was gruesome a'f.

7. Chapter 4 (Roanoke)

Oh man, this episode was heavy. We finally got a good glimpse into the Butcher's backstory and the earliest days of the lost colony. We also finally got an even better glimpse into Evan Peter's eccentric Edward Mott, who he wonderfully portrays. Of course, Cricket's hilarious Uber mishap definitely made the episode though.

6. Afterbirth (Murder House)

Possibly one of, if not the most memorable AHS season finale. A few defying moments include Violet setting Tate straight, the short stay of the Ramos fam, and the Harmon fam finally having their happy ending all together in the ghostly realm of the murder house. But, the most shocking and suspenseful scene goes to our introduction to the lil Antichrist.

5. Nor'easter (Asylum)

This episode is what is really took to confirm that we all loved season 2. In a delightfully spooky turn of events, we have the once innocent Sister Mary Eunice unlock full demon mode and Sister Jude fall off the wagon. Pepper was also a treat as usual. On the other hand, we see what becomes of poor Shelley after insulting a Nazi doctor.

4. The Name Game (Asylum)

Without a doubt one of the most memorable episodes. With a rather dark undertone to it, watching the gradual downfall of Sister Jude in the hands of her enemies, we get the most unusual but amazing scene of AHS history. A spontaneous lively musical number featuring Judy, Lana Banana, and Pepper was all we needed to break up a somber episode.

3.Chapter 2 (Roanoke)

Nothing ever ends well when you bring your kid to a possessed house. The second episode of this season is what AHS is all about, horror. We wanted something scary after an awful season last year and we got with this episode - and more than we could ever imagine. Of course lil Flora had to go missing at the last moment of the episode... smh.

2. Smoldering Children (Murder House)

EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER. ENOUGH SAID. There was never a more beautifully tragic episode than this one and our hearts all broke for Violet when she discovered the truth behind her brutal demise. Tate just wanted her to be happy - but obviously that couldn't work out since he was a psychopath-serial-killer-rapist-ghost.

1. Orphans (Freakshow)

Best episode ever, hands down. It was nice to get a break from the Freakshow so we could have this much anticipated episode focused on our favorite pinhead, Pepper. From her heart-wrenching backstory and tear-jerking union with Salty, this episode made us love Pepper even more. Elsa was so good to her and the fact that she was thrown into the asylum was painful to watch. Overall, this episode was a beautiful way to end Pepper's days on AHS.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
