Notes

  • With the nuclear fallout triggered by the fate of Michael Langdon, Apocalypse is marked as the season with the largest number of deaths, estimated approximately seven billion lives.
  • This also makes Michael responsible for the most victims in the AHS universe, surpassing James March in Hotel.
  • Shooting and stabbing are among the major causes of death of the characters.
