Top 3 Favorite American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare Fan Theories

There is no doubt this season of American Horror Story has been crazy from the beginning. From the mystery theme to the documentary style of the show, the suspense and surprises keep coming. The theme for season 6, My Roanoke Nightmare, has left many people with questions about how it will connect to the previous seasons and whether the other trailers put out by the creators will have a connection to the show. Ryan Murphy, the show’s creator, has already confirmed that the show will have a huge plot twist in episode 6, creating curiosity and speculation for the fans.

Out of the many fan theories about season six, these are my top three:

1. Billie Dean Howard’s TV Show: Reddit user mansonfamily

Billie Dean Howard is the medium in the first season of AHS, Murder House. In season one, Billie Dean Howard mentions an exorcism performed in the lost colony of Roanoke. She also reappears in season five, Hotel, where she contacts ghosts. Reddit user mansonfamily hypothesizes that this season could be Billie Dean Howard’s TV show. The documentary style setup could be explained as taking place from Howard’s point of view as if she is interviewing the spirits. I don’t think this a far stretch. With the show creators’ past of huge plot twists, anything is possible.

2. The narrators are actors, not the reenactors: Reddit users goldencolossus and gnrwarrior

Reddit users goldencolossus and gnrwarrior were on operating on the same wavelength when they put their theories out into the world. Because of the documentary style interviews, some people feel like they don’t have to be scared for the characters of Shelby, Matt and Lee because they are giving the interviews that are being reenacted. But thanks to goldencolossus and gnrwarrior, people are starting to wonder if their sense of security for the characters is a sham. What if the reenactors are the real Shelby, Matt and Lee and are dead now and the interviewees are actors paid to narrate the documentary?

3. The other trailers released are connected to the show: Huffington Post

The article from the Huffington post regarding the fan theories made a good point about the “fake trailers” put out by the creators’. What if the fake trailers are connected somehow? The scene where Shelby is dragged down into the tub looks very similar to the trailer that swamp monster pulls the woman under water. What if the other trailers point out certain things that will happen to the characters?

I’m not sure whether any of these fan theories are true, but I’m 100 percent sure this show is going to be a roller coaster of emotion and plot twists. Hang on to your seats, y’all. It’s gonna be a wild ride!

Also, am I the only one wondering where Evan Peters is this season?

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
