Kai, meanwhile, may seem more confident than Ally on the surface, but his actions reflect the insecurities and fears that are now driving many Trump supporters, like the moment when he picks a fight with Mexican workers, telling them, "You wetbacks aren't welcome here no more". Kai walks away from the meeting without protest, but utters one cryptic statement: "There is nothing more risky in this world than a humiliated man". Not one group is decidedly "good" or "bad"-besides the gaggle of murderous clowns glimpsed in the premiere". This time, it's a scene in which Kai, still reveling in the glory of Trump's win, throws a bag of Cheetos in a blender and smears the orange goop onto his face as he whispers, "it's gonna be huuuuggeee" into the mirror. We can't put our finger on it, but this really reminds us of someb. Turning to Dr. Rudy Vincent (Cheyenne Jackson) for help, she can hardly even handle being in his office because of a piece of hole-filled coral sitting on one his shelves (not because it's a bad decor choice, but because of you know, the plethora of tiny little holes next to one another).
And then comes another entwinement of characters when Winter ends up becoming Ivy and Ally's new babysitter. Afterwards, in probably the best bit of satire in the premiere, Ivy signals that she might still be resentful of Ally for - gasp! - voting for Jill Stein instead of Hillary Clinton. I can't make this stuff up. Ally's constant freak-outs and fits, which Ivy is sure are all in her head, are putting a real rift between them. She drives straight into a street light in her eagerness to escape, and the scene cuts. Remember in 2016 when Americans were briefly gripped by a spate of coulrophobia (the fear of clowns) and started seeing and reporting creepy clowns stalking their communities? "I think that we've been very careful to be fair". In some of the most in-your-face satire of the episode, Winter, on the phone with her friend, chastises CNN for not issuing a "trigger warning" before announcing the election results.
Cult features Trump supporters, Hillary supporters, and protest voters. Pre-Trump Winter is the exact opposite of her brother, and it will be interesting to watch how he swayed her in the coming episodes. With her previous role playing a literal unfeeling character (Scream Queens) or a small, cameo appearance (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), it's captivating and refreshing to see such a new depth to Lourd's acting. Yet, on her first night looking after the kid, she shows him snuff videos and the dark web. Ally exclaims. "I tried, you know that I did". There was at least one overt Manson reference in last night's episode, when the Purge-like killers bound and stabbed a couple in their home, then left behind a bloody message on the door. The Changs have died, according to. After asking his social followers if they'd like the main title sequence to return this season, as it was absent during Roanoke, FX revealed the opening credits on Twitter.
Interestingly, the late Mr. Chang is the same man who told Kai Anderson to buzz off at the town meeting. "There's something awful that happens in the lives of our characters on election night", he goes on, adding, "which in itself was a horror story, so it's like a horror story upon a horror story".
