All seasons of American Horror Story are interconnected and share the same timeline. After the use of Tempus Infinituum, a time travel spell in Apocalypse, a new revised timeline was created. As a result, events changed by Tempus Infinituum are categorized under Alternate Timeline.

Each entry should be referenced to episode(s) and season(s).

NOTE: Remember that this is a timeline, not a scene-by-scene recap of events that occurred in all the various seasons. While this is a general timeline aiming to highlight how the seasons intersect each other across time, consider updating and expanding on the individual timelines listed below when it comes to events pertaining solely to that season.

  • February 19th:
    • In Albuquerque, New Mexico, housewife Maria pulls a casserole out of the oven and sets the dinner table, as her son, Timmy, plays in the front yard; both awaiting the arrival of the father.

  • February 20th
    • The next day, President Dwight Eisenhower plays golf in Palm Springs, when his advisor comes to him with troubling news of an airspace incursion near Edwards Air Force Base. He tries to cover his visit to the base as a dental emergency, but his wife Mamie Eisenhower sees through his story. The Army escorts him to the crash site: an extraterrestrial saucer leaking radiation. An alien body is found among the wreckage, which Eisenhower believes is a child. Not far away, a woman covered in geometric-patterned scars on her back crouches naked near a scrub tree. The President rushes to her, draping her with his suitcoat, and she gives him her name: Amelia Earhart. At the military base, she relays the tale of her famous flight over Howland Island and went missing, stating the instrumentations of her plane went berserk and that she was surrounded by a bright white light. She states that is her last memory before arriving near the crashed alien space craft where she was found, but ascertains that the scars on her back were from experiments. When Dwight presses on who did this to her, she falters and asks where she is. When he begins to tell her, she becomes frantic with disbelief and needs to be sedated.
    • While they await confirmation of her identity from the FBI, the President's advisor reminds Eisenhower that Earhart went missing in 1937. Though she has not aged a day, her image is identical to the photo Mamie kept of Earhart in her office. The doctor also discloses that examinations show Earhart is two months pregnant.
    • Eisenhower watches as the extraterrestrial corpse is autopsied, and the scientists find that the body is hollow, like a shell. A membranous mass leaps from the husk and latches onto one of the examiners' faces. The other examiner tries to rip it off, only for the organism to latch to his face as well, causing both both mens' heads to explode. In a panic, the President is escorted away from the observation area to a safe location but is stopped by Maria Wycoff, still possessed by extraterrestrial influence and thus referred to as Subject 1 by high-ranking officials in the United States government. Eisenhower tries to negotiate with her; instead, she tells him that it is he who will listen.
    • Sometime following these events, Eisenhower is indecisive on whether to take a mysterious deal provided by the aliens. His advisors counsel him that the aliens could make a deal with Russia instead if he does not comply with their requests. Subject 1, still inhabiting Maria, enters the meeting with gifts of stealth and fiber-optic technologies. Subject 1 insists that the alien homeworld is dying and they are desperate to find solutions. She explains that the aliens will need to impregnate humans to ensure their species' survival, thereby creating alien-hybrids hybrids that can thrive in Earth's toxic and pathogenic environment. Unable to further sustain control of Maria's body, Subject 1 exits the meeting by exploding her head. Meanwhile, the first newborn hybrid kills several medical staff after delivery and Eisenhower shoots it in the head before it can escape containment. This fills him further with doubt, and unbeknownst to him, Subject 1 takes control over the body of Mamie to play on his patriotism.
    • Later, Mamie shows Nixon sensitive files from Eisenhower's desk, coercing him to talk her husband into agreeing to the terms. Eisenhower notices that the handkerchief Nixon is using came from Mamie's monogrammed collection. When Eisenhower confronts Mamie, she reveals her true identity as Subject 1 and threatens him to comply with the alien-human agreement, reminding him of Maria's fate. Eisenhower is having difficulty with the treaty, unable to cope with the thought of trading the torture of Americans for advanced technology. Subject 1, still inhabiting Mamie, continues to threaten consequences for the First Lady. Eisenhower agrees to everything and Subject 1 releases Mamie from its control.

Several specimens of hybrid, in various ratio of human / extraterrestrial aspects, are stored in the lab. Valiant Thor explains that the extraterrestrials are convinced Eisenhower (and humanity, by extension) would cancel the treaty if humans saw their true forms. Valiant Thor intimates that the extraterrestrials will take what they want by force rather than deal with the Russians.
    • Mamie is undeterred when her husband brings concerns to her. She tells him that, according to a "Val", a facility in Nevada was in development for the alien-human hybrid program to ensure the White House would not get crowded with their experiments. Soon after, he secretly deeds this facility to the aliens by executive order.
    • Hearing an unfamiliar noise in the residence, Eisenhower finds Mamie astride Val, sexually engaged. The sight causes him to faint, clutching his chest. When he awakes, she is unapologetic, calling Thor both a machine and a visiting dignitary. She considers it revenge for an affair he had during the war. Dejected, the President walks away, questioning if he even knows his wife anymore.

Harry is a screenwriter and is planning on writing a television pilot, while Alma is a violin prodigy. Harry walks to the market to pick up supplies, and notices residents turning on red porch lights. His cart slams to a halt when a frantic homeless woman, Karen, accosts him and warns him to leave. Mikey, the market owner and Martha's brother, demands she leave and not scare Harry away.
      • While Alma plays, Harry experiences writer's block and Doris ponders her next stylistic move. Meanwhile, a fox explores the beach's dunes and is snatched by an unseen force. Harry subtly blames Alma for distracting him, but Doris breaks the tension by taking their daughter for a walk. They pass a cemetery, observed by a strange pale bald figure. He gives chase and they run into the house. Harry rushes to lock the doors and the unearthly figure hisses at him, baring his teeth.
      • Later, Chief Burleson investigates the complaint and assures Doris that the man was simply trying to scare her and was probably high on drugs. Harry mentions the case of a nearby "Truro family that was killed in their beds, but the Chief insists nothing is amiss and the town is safe. The family has misgivings but decides to stay for the opportunity.
      • Alma hears a tap on her window, and looks outside to see a trio of ghoulish figures (including the man that chased them earlier). Her parents put Alma back to bed, but decide not to call the police.

However Doris vomits, sick from stress, thus canceling their date night.
      • 8:13 PM EST:
        • Harry Gardner goes out to The Muse restaurant. There, he is propositioned by male prostitute Mickey at the bar. Harry declines.
      • 8:15 PM EST:
        • Belle Noir and Austin Sommers sing a duet together and buy Harry a drink, welcoming him to Provincetown's writer's circle.
      • Karen storms in and starts collecting table scraps. The bartender tries to drive her away, but Austin calls out jokingly to leave her alone. Karen notices Harry and warns him again to run, before the "bloodsuckers" get to him. He writes it off as an inspiring experience.
      • Harry returns home, finding his wife and daughter asleep. Once again, he brews tea for a night of writing. An ajar window startles him, and he is attacked by one of the strange bald men. Defending himself, he manages to beat in the creature's head with a coat rack.
      • Belle serves as Mickey's client for the evening, and she offers to house him overnight, but he declines. She counters with an offer to pay him for a taste of blood, which she has done before (nearly killing him the last time). He again declines, but she says she will drink from him or he gets nothing. He reluctantly agrees, and she gashes open his arm before biting in with her suddenly pointed, shark-like teeth. Outside The Muse, Karen retrieves trash from the dumpster where Belle calls her, telling her she has three hours to complete their deal, though Karen begs to get out of it.
    • January 27th:
      • The police carry away the corpse and clean up the scene. Burelson says that they must give statements the next day, but have every right to defend themselves from an intruder in their home.

The parents agree that they should leave, but that Doris still has a job to do.
      • Karen arrives at Belle's home with a human baby, in exchange for drugs. Karen is terrified of Belle, but less so than the others that Belle is protecting her from.
      • Harry begins packing, but Alma says she doesn't want to go back to New York. Harry suggests they go to Nantucket. Harry receives a call from Austin, inviting him for a "cure" for his writer's block. At his house, Austin tosses him a bag of unnamed black pills, which despite spiking writers' creativity. He insists there are no side effects and the "catches" are irrelevant. He expounds that if writing is a necessity for Harry, then the costs don't matter. Harry begins to walk away, but Austin places the pills back in his hands before he leaves.
      • Ursula, Harry's agent, calls and insists that he needs to finish the pilot as soon as possible. His safety nets are gone, and he will not recover professionally if he does not get the project done. Feeling he has no options, Harry takes a single pill. Alma watches from afar.
    • January 28th:
      • The Gardeners load into the car to leave Provincetown. Before he can start the engine, the pills have a sudden and powerful effect on Harry. He insists that he has to write immediately and takes his computer back into the house. Alma and Doris return to the Brown House, and Alma is concerned enough that it is throwing off her violin. She admits to her mother that she saw Harry take a drug.
      • In four hours of writing, Harry has completed the pilot. Doris asks him what drug he took, though he denies it. Alma comes in and confronts him as well and he snaps at her for lack of talent, which sends her running upstairs. Harry and Doris fight, and he says that she is not supporting his need to stay another day or two. She too storms off.
      • When his wife and daughter return, Harry apologizes. Harry ravenously tears into a sandwich and immediately wretches, thrown off by the taste of turkey. Wanting privacy so he can finish writing, he asks his family to clear the room. Determined, he writes all night and into the morning. Doris reads his screenplay off the printer, and compliments him on how good it is. She is concerned that this is abnormal behavior from him, and when he says he has no appetite for food she is upset that he lied about taking a drug. He heads to the market, passing the pale men on the street. He approaches one chewing on a rat, and the others corral around him trying to bite him. They stop when they smell him, likely recognizing the drug in his system.
      • The bloody steaks in the meat market draw Harry's attention. He loads several into his cart, noticed by Mikey. The storekeeper muses that Harry's creative flow must have begun. Karen has noticed, too, and confronts Harry about taking the pill. She says "you never knew thirsty before now" and walks away.
      • At home, Harry drains the blood from the steaks into a pitcher and drinks it up, then purees and strains the steaks into a liquid. His mouth dripping blood from the liquefied raw meat, he returns to writing.
      • Alma and Doris discuss leaving. They both want to, but Doris also wants to be supportive of his inspiration. Alma reminds her mother that Harry is being mean to him, but that they can tough it out for a few more days. Alma wonders if she would be able to play the violin better if she took a black pill, but Doris insists there is no magic pill for greatness.
      • Once Alma is in bed, Doris descends the stairs to approach Harry, but she backs off when she sees him still writing. Outside, Austin and Belle Noir exchange knowing conversation about the first days on "Muse", the term Austin calls the black pills. Belle admits that if Harry is going to keep up the pace, he will need to upgrade his diet. The pair resolve to head up the cape for a snack.
    • January 29th:
      • The next day, Doris cuts up vegetables for a soup. Harry enters the kitchen and has still not slept. He wants to stay another week, but Doris is not having it. Angry, she cuts her finger with the chopping knife. On reflex, Harry pounces on her hands, sucking away the blood. She throws him off, as he's hurting her. He stares at her, blood dripping across his chin.
      • Austin drives birds away from his property with a shotgun blast. Harry drives up, and demands of Austin to know what was in the pills. Austin says only The Chemist knows. He relates that the town used to have a succession of drug problems, starting with heroin and crystal meth, which developed into a mystery designer drug. The drug only works for those with a creative spark; those without become "flesh phantoms" that have been hunting around town. The "Muse" depletes the major minerals in the bloodstream, which have to be replenished in massive amounts. Eventually, the meat market will no longer satisfy those needs and the user will need fresh blood —from humans. Once the user stops taking the drug, they will return to normal but will never be creative to the same level.
      • Harry once again returns and apologizes, saying that they can leave the next morning. Doris reminds him that she has a job to do here, too, and that she won a contest for the opportunity. She fears he doesn't think she is good enough. They are interrupted by a call from Ursula with good news: not only is the studio immediately greenlighting the pilot, but Joaquin Phoenix saw it and signed onto the project on the spot. Further, Netflix wants to make an overall deal with them. Ursula suggests the Gardeners start looking at real estate options. Ecstatic, they want to celebrate and Harry distractedly sits down to work. He finds he can not write a word and drives to Austin's, looking for more Muse. Belle Noir is there, and they convince Harry to take another dose. She insists that he will not be able to stop now that he has had a taste. Then they say they are going out to eat, and the two eccentric locals reveal their pointed teeth.
      • On the drive to their destination, Harry calls to apologize to a disappointed Doris that he's been invited into a prestigious writers' group. He asks how many creatives are on the drug ("a few") and why there are more recently ("streamers"). The local duo also explains that they only do "Muse" seasonally, and that they only need to feed on blood ("4-6 pints worth") weekly while on the drug. They choose victims who will not be missed and exsanguinate them completely, mostly from addicts clearly selling stolen goods on Craigslist. The two rules are to never feed in Provincetown (because of the new police Chief's curiosity) and never take the gloves off.
      • Elsewhere, Karen is staying with Mickey, who explains his own house rules. Mickey also explains his theories on Jaws' shark-driven motivations while they get high. Mickey mentions that he loves movies and has started several screenplays of his own. He says that he stole some Muse off of Sarah and offers them to Karen, but Karen explains the pills' effects. She insists that even living as she does, she'd rather be like that than live like Sarah. Mickey points out that they are both creative, as he has purchased several of Karen's paintings from a thrift shop. The evocative paintings are talented crafts. They muse about what they would do with fame and fortune, but Karen quickly admits that she could not do what's entailed. Mickey says he can, and takes a pill in front of her.
      • The trio of writers arrive at the seller's house. Once inside, Belle Noir slashes his throat and they quickly feed on the man. Harry is ashamed, but Sarah tries to rationalize that the addict was a burden to society. They also acknowledge that they are experiencing a second-hand high from the meth in the addict's system. They say they should get Harry to Dr Feldman to take care of his teeth.
    • January 30th:
      • Harry visits dentist Leslie Feldman (aka Lark) at her tattoo shop. Her Muse experience made her a skilled tattoo artist after dental school. She designed the caps that will cover his new teeth after they are filed to pickets, with the rationale that he will have to murder fewer people with the cleaner feeding that the new teeth will provide. After all, she says, all predatory species have them.
      • Alma is frustrated that she can not master the challenging violin pieces she is trying. While Doris is not watching, Alma rifles through Harry's bag and takes a Muse pill. Almost immediately, her skill skyrockets. Meanwhile, we see Mickey and Harry thriving in their creative flows and Doris struggling to master tone-on-tone interior design. Alma collapses after a challenging piece, which wakes Doris. Doris is pale and tired, and asks Alma to stop her non-stop practice. Alma declines, saying that she must master the piece; she goes on that Doris will never understand greatness like Alma and her father will, because Doris is content being mediocre. Doris notes Alma's atypical cruelty, but Alma retorts that Doris is jealous because she does not understand art or inspiration. Alma finishes by saying she feels at home there now and never wants to leave. Doris angrily sends Alma to her room to pack for leaving the next day.
      • Harry runs along the beach and encounters a hustler under the pier, whom he quickly dispatches.
      • Emily Campbell and Timothy Campbell conceive their new baby boy, who is expected to be born on October 31st, 2021. The baby is the next prophesied Anti-Christ. AHSW-Apocalypse-Full.png
  • February:
    • February 1st:
      • Doris awakens to find Alma has left her violin at Doris' bedside and is missing. Confused, she asks Harry if she has seen Alma, and if that is blood on his chin. Her husband responds that she went for a walk to get fresh air. Doris is furious that Harry allowed their daughter to go out alone with the dangerous pale men lurking in town. Harry says she is being irrational (blaming it on her pregnancy), but Doris counters that it is not irrational when they have been attacked in the last few days, including Harry killing an intruder. Doris says that she will find Alma and the two will leave without Harry. Doris searches the streets calling for Alma, finding her daughter in the cemetery eating a freshly killed rabbit.
      • Doris frantically scrubs the blood off of a wailing Alma, insisting she needs medical attention and going on about possible Lyme disease. Harry tries to calm Doris down, but she tells him how she found Alma earlier: sucking the blood from a dead rabbit in the cemetery. Before Harry has a chance to process that this means Alma has taken the Muse, Chief Burleson arrives; responding to worried calls from people who had seen a bloody Alma in the cemetery. Burleson wants to bring Alma in for questioning since the torn-up wounds on the rabbit are extremely similar to those found on a man who was killed earlier on the beach (the man Harry murdered at the end of Pale), along with other similar murders that are becoming increasingly frequent. Harry and Doris protest Burleson's orders, wanting to keep Alma at home, but Doris falls down the stairs and has to be sent to the hospital. The doctors there say that her condition is stable, but that they want to monitor her for at least four days before sending her home. Doris panics at this - yet another thing delaying her leaving Provincetown. Harry sends Alma to the vending machine, but both the girl and her father respond to the bags of banked blood on a cart.
      • Once again, Harry and Doris decide to leave Provincetown. Harry drives Alma away from where they said they were going. They talk about the pill and Alma's response to it. Alma didn't mind eating the rabbit, as she wants to be the greatest — not simply great. Harry explains the price of the pill. Alma agrees to stop taking the pill if her father will.
    • February 2nd:
      • Harry's writer's block has returned. He digs the pills out of the trash, and gives Alma a dose when she asks. They go out for "very rare" steak. As the two wait for dinner, they discuss logistics: Alma's necessary all-year dosage, tracking her growth and development, and a secret from Doris. Alma proposes that they don't need Doris, but Harry will not have that. He also insists that he procure her blood, rather than her hunting for herself. That causes Alma to respond that she's hungry now. He drives up the coast to "buy a bicycle and DVD player", and the woman cautiously invites him in. Harry is attacked from behind and locked in the basement.
      • He awakens stripped, in a BDSM porn rape to be filmed by the couple upstairs, Tony and Melanie. They insist they will kill him after they are done. They position Harry for the camera, but Harry surprises them by ripping her throat out and shooting Tony. He gathers the blood and brings it back to Alma.
    • February 3rd:
      • Ursula surprises Harry at home. Harry explains where Doris is. Ursula got a call from Quentin Tarantino, wanting Harry to write a limited series for Hulu. Given some subtext, Harry also intuits that Tarantino is on Muse. Harry deflects by discussing the number of artists in the area and suggesting she eat at The Muse. He warns her about the town's drug problem and to stay safe.
      • At the bar, Ursula encounters Mickey as Belle Noir and Austin sing a duet. Ursula frustratedly complains at the noise they are making. The pair come over and subtly threaten her. Mickey offers to buy her a drink, but she declines and leaves.
    • February 4th:
      • Mickey approaches her the next day on the beach, and asks her to read a spec script. She wonders if he is in a meth haze, but he says he has not smoked in days. She grudgingly agrees to read the scripts he gives her, saying she will burn them if she does not like them. Much to her surprise, she enjoys them. The next day she confronts him, and insists that he can't have written the valuable script she read. She refuses to believe that something odd isn't going on. She admits she recognized Austin and Belle the night before, and Mickey tells her about the local drug, Muse. Ursula demands that he steal more pills from Belle.
      • That night, Mickey finds a stash of Muse in Belle's house and siphons a few. Meanwhile, the writer trio finds a trio of addicts to feed them. Harry locates a thermos to gather some blood for Alma, noticed by the other two. On the way back, Belle and Austin confront him asking who the blood is for. He admits it is for Alma. They demand Harry cut her off, or Belle will eat Alma. After they drop Harry off, the two agree that Harry and Alma both need to die.
    • February 5th:
      • Mickey finds a hustler under the boardwalk and attacks his old friend. His would-be victim fights him off and nearly drowns Mickey in the surf. Mickey hamstrings him and drinks from his throat there on the beach. When he returns to his home, he finds Belle waiting for him. He says he is sorry that he stole the pills but that he is talented enough to not become a Pale man. She will allow him to continue, so long as he tithes back a thermos of blood for her. She also threatens that Ursula must be his next kill.
      • Burleson interviews a witness to the the beach incident: Holden Vaughn. He says it was a gay-bashing incident. He is an interior designer, mourning his dog while in town.
      • Mickey breaks into Ursula's hotel room and walks in on her in the bath. She offers him a rewrite of "Speed Racer", his script already acceptred by the studio. She will set him up for further success if he takes her to The Chemist. Ursula intends to make The Chemist very rich, she tells a wary Mickey. The next day, they approach a house and knock. A woman answers, and Ursula bargains for five minutes of the woman's time. Ursula offers The Chemist a distribution deal. The Chemist tells Belle and Austin later that she declined the deal, and she demands the pair kill Ursula, Mickey, and the Gardners.
    • February 6th:
      • Ursula babysits a hungry Alma and says she is going to take a nap. Burleson watches Harry leave and Alma lets the Chief in for a talk. The Chief knows that Harry and Alma are involved in the murders of derelicts, and leans on Alma for understanding. She asks if it is a cult or a blood disease. Alma asks if Burleson had a dream. Burleson says she will take Alma to the police station to await Harry for arrest, but Alma jabs the chief in the carotid with a kitchen knife. When Harry returns, he finds that Ursula has taught Alma how to play gin rummy while Burleson's blood pools into bowls below her prone, fireside body.
    • February 7th:
      • Doris delivers a baby boy. Harry is nearly overcome by the sight and scents of the blood. After cutting the cord, the parents vow they're going to be "great" from now on. In a restroom, Harry squeezes birthing blood into paper cups from the soiled linens and drinks.
      • At home, Doris dreams of her experiences. She is still in a confused haze as Ursula visits. She realizes that they are supposed to have (separately) left Providence, as they had planned. Harry explains that Doris is at high risk for post-birth complications, and they should not be separated for at least 3 weeks.
      • Karen encounters a well dressed Mickey, who drives her in a race car to Race Point (a beach she intends to paint). He explains that the studio leased him the Ford GTL (the closest thing to Speed Racer's fictional "Mach 5") because he is now entrusted with reviving the Speed Racer extended franchise universe. He offers her a production design job and moving with him to Los Angeles, but she quickly realizes that he has succumbed to Muse and everything that comes with it, and demands that he pull over so she can get out of the car. She flees into the dunes.
    • February 10th:
      • 1:08 AM EST:
        • Doris awakens, looking for the baby and finds him with Alma. Alma is drinking from a cut in the baby's leg.
      • In the morning, Harry confronts Alma. She says that the baby was not hurt, and it was just a sip. She confirms that a baby's blood is nearly like the potency of the pill itself, and that she is now able to play one of the most challenging violin pieces ever created. As she is not conceding the point of his concern, he threatens to smash her violin before she says she understands. Alma once again mentions that the two of them have outgrown Doris and that she doesn't understand keeping her mother around. Harry threatens to cut off Alma's pill supply if she harms the baby.
      • Ursula suggests to a still groggy Doris that Alma's "sip" was simply a dream, but Doris feels that Ursula is gaslighting her. Ursula insists that Harry is working on further scripts, but Doris is skeptical that her husband has become so prolific. Ursula suggests that Doris simply sit back and ride her husband's success (and to be on her best behavior).
      • Time passes, and Harry procures more blood for Alma. Doris finds a fresh bite mark on the baby's leg. Alma brings Doris pills to help her recuperate, and Doris recognizes one of them as Muse. Doris calls for Harry and demands to know what the foreign pill is. When she doesn't get a satisfying answer, Doris shows Harry the bite mark, which he writes off as a scrape from the hospital's monitoring anklet. Alma openly suggests that they stop lying to Doris and that she wants Doris to take the pill, explaining that it boosts creative performance; she adds that she won't even mind drinking the blood after time. Ursula chimes in that it's a good idea, but Harry says it is not for her. Alma questions whether they all think she's good enough to take the risk. Doris grabs the baby and runs out of the house, but is immediately confronted with the Pale People on the street. Harry guides her back to the house, and the Pale People scatter.
    • February 11th:
      • Karen paints a cottage, from the vantage of the dunes. Belle approaches her, chiding that Karen has not been answering her burner phone. After a critique of her paintings, Belle demands that Karen obtain the Gardner's baby for her. Pale People approach from the dunes, and Belle threatens Karen with them when Karen refuses. Belle begins destroying Karen's canvases, explaining that newborn blood is a particular (unspoiled) taste. If Karen continues to refuse, Belle says she will gouge out the painter's eyes.
      • Doris frantically searches for a pair of shears that she can use as a weapon. She sneaks downstairs and overhears Holden's cutting insults about her design boards. Harry sees her and suggests she return upstairs. He introduces the visitor to his wife, implying that Holden can help Doris while she's impaired from the difficult birth. She reluctantly returns upstairs to feed the newborn.
      • Mickey places some of Karen's paintings in a box when the painter herself storms in. She is furious that Mickey told Belle how to find her, and explains her predicament. Mickey says that Karen's solution is simple: start taking the pills. Karen wants to save the Gardner baby from Belle and anyone she would send afterwards. Karen insists that taking care of the baby will help her get her life in order, and that Mickey must help her before he loses what's left of his soul.
      • Alma and Doris decide to name the baby "Eli". Alma explains the effect of newborn blood, and how it super-powered her playing. Doris reminds Alma that the baby is her brother and that she must not do that to any baby (including her brother). Alma promises that she is sorry and that she won't. Doris laments that their family is already lost, but Alma insists that Doris has the talent — despite what Harry thinks — to survive the pill together. The daughter makes the case that they can have it all. Doris says that it's not worth hurting people to be good at something, though Alma insists that her mother will forget the downsides. Ultimately, she convinces her mother to take the pill.
      • Doris begins obsessively sketching design boards until she vomits across them. Alma insists on going out for dinner with Harry and Ursula, and they leave the sleeping mother alone (without the car keys). Mickey and Karen approach and break the window to enter the back door. The Pale People are not far away, but Mickey tells Karen they will not harm her so long as she is with him. Karen pleads with Mickey not to kill Doris, and Doris confronts them before they can grab Eli. They see that her skin has grown pale and her hair has begun falling out. Karen flees into the street and is quickly surrounded by the Pale, who chase her to a doorway. Mickey arrives and intervenes, offering Karen a choice to take Muse. He insists that she should believe in herself the way that he does, but Karen says that she doesn't care if she is good enough for the pill to work: she doesn't want to lose her humanity the way he has. He leaves her with a pill and walks away. The Pale encroach on Karen, and she pops the pill into her mouth to save her own life. The Pale instantly recoil and slinkaway.
    • February 12th:
      • Doris sees her reflection and shaves off her remaining hair. As the baby cries, she grabs a knife from the kitchen and takes it back upstairs. Moments from bringing it down on the baby, Harry wrestles it from her. Harry tries to get through to his wife, and while she briefly recognizes him she lunges again for the baby. He forces her into the bathroom and traps her there, wondering aloud why she would have taken the pill. Alma admits that Ursula coached her to do so, and that it was the right thing.
      • Karen is squeamish that she took one of the pills. Mickey insists that she is just hungry, and he resolves to track a victim for her. He offers again to take her to Los Angeles with him, but she thinks they are both cursed now. Mickey calms her by asking her what her masterwork would be. He says to try to create it immediately, after she feeds, to see if the pill worked.
    • February 13th:
      • The next morning, a dejected Harry approaches the transformed Doris. He laments to her that he should have been honest with her: he has indeed outgrown her. He suggests it is better this way, and now she will not have to watch his star rise. He releases her to join the other Pale. Ursula quips that there is nothing more pathetic and sad than a person with no talent trying to make it in the world. Alma, though, feels something and clasps Harry's hand.
      • Mickey takes Karen to the dunes, where a convenient victim awaits them on the beach. He offers to help her, and she tells him that she is going to help them both. She leans in for an embrace, and rips out the side of his neck with her teeth. She wrestles him to the ground, drinking, and begins painting. Before long, she approaches the shore and slits her wrists to bleed into the surf before walking in. She allows the waves to crash over her, leaving behind a red tide.
      • Ursula and Alma pay a visit to The Chemist, as the agent schemes to have the most successful talent and literary pool of all time supplied by the drug. She thinks that Alma will help persuade The Chemist. They pass the cemetery and observe a Pale Doris eating a rodent.
    • February 22nd:
      • The Provincetown harbor master warns fisherman Tony of an oncoming storm altering the tides. Before the small craft can leave the harbor, they collide with the floating corpse of Chief Burleson. The town council (including Holden Vaughn) is notified by Trooper Jan Remy of the Massachusetts State Police of the located body, with an added report that similar wounds have been found on an epidemic of bodies: throats slashed with uneven wounds and near total exsanguination. Remy believes there is a serial killer at work causing a string of brutal murders, but the town council suggests there is no evidence of murder. The council chair writes them off as "wintertime problems" — strange things happen on the Cape in the winter. They accept it as the price of living in a special place, and that it will drive away tourist revenue if they make it public. Remy responds that she knows they are hiding something, and does not appreciate impeding the investigation. After Remy leaves, Vaughn tells the councilors he will take care of it.
    • February 23rd:
      • Vaughn meets with The Chemist, Austin Sommers, and Belle Noir. He is fully aware of their activities and the Pale. The writers blame the "Hollywood" people, but the Chemist reminds them that she instructed the pair to get rid of them. The Council insists that the Muse users will be crushed by bureaucracy if they don't make the problems go away.
      • Ursula looks over Harry's latest work, calling it a masterpiece. He has written five years worth of material, and he announces that they are all going to permanently stop using Muse. Alma calls him selfish, and that they don't have to stop. Ursula partially agrees that there is some truth to Alma's claims of superiority. Harry wants to regain some of his morality and humanity, but Ursula argues that this is simply what success looks like. Harry pleads with Alma that he will be able to be with her full time and support her. Alma tells him that she trusts him, and they embrace; by the look she gives Ursula, it is clear Alma has no intention of complying.
    • February 24th:
      • The Gardners shop for vitamins and supplements to ease their transition off Muse. Harry spots a figure outside the window. Alma insists that he needs to let Doris go, and that her mother isn't even a person anymore. They notice that the door jamb of the kitchen door has been broken. Harry runs upstairs to find baby Eli has been taken; Belle left a note that she has taken custody of the newborn. She threatens the baby's safety if Harry and Alma aren't at Belle's house at sundown. Though they know it is a trap, Alma says that she is not afraid. Ursula refuses to go with them, but has a plan.
      • Ursula enters the graveyard to get the attention of the Pale. She pleads her case that they deserve second chances. She holds out a bottle and says that there is a new formula of Muse with no side effects and that might undo the damage that ravaged their bodies. She offers them the cure if they attack the artists, though it seems they are not listening to her as they surround her.
      • Harry and Alma rush to Belle's, where the woman has Eli staged as an appetizer. Harry begs that they will leave and never return. The Chemist, who enters with Austin, says they will be back when the pill supply runs out. Belle and Austin don't believe his claims that the Gardners can get off the pills, and approach father and daughter with knives. They corner the family, who are saved by a sudden intrusion of the Pale through the windows. The talentless hack their way into Belle and Austin, fatally ripping their throats. The Pale turn attention to the Gardners, but Ursula shoots the would-be attackers before they can reach the family. The Chemist carries Eli towards Harry, and is intercepted by Ursula. Harry is relieved that they can all return to normal, though Alma – while hugging him – tells him that she will not allow him to stop her from achieving greatness. Alma sinks her teeth into her father's neck.
      • While Alma drinks her fill, the Chemist and Ursula discuss the new pills. The Chemist discloses that the new pills are an old and discarded formula that changes the behavior to make the pill-takers attack each other. Ursula says she can spin a story where Harry takes all of the blame for the deaths, while setting up The Chemist to distribute in Los Angeles.
  • March
    • March 8th:
      • Chad and Kelly start dating, as stated by Kelly.
  • May
    • May 9th:
      • A Pale man – once a LAPD officer — attacks a tourist on Hollywood Boulevard. His colleagues arrive to gun him down. The news coverage claims that the Pale officer was known to be a "bad apple", one of several recent incidents of police shooting police who had a history of racial complaints. The Chemist turns off the news, addressing Alma's concern that she shouldn't mess with police. The Chemist insists the risks are minimal because of military secrecy concerns, and that she is performing a community service now that she has everything she wants. Ursula enters after a long day of dealing with agents and pushing Muse to writers at Starbucks. The Chemist and Alma have concerns, but they gloss over them. Alma says she is ready for the next step, an audition, but that she could use something to eat first. Ursula has left her a hustler to eat in the pool house.
    • May 11th:
      • Alma is one of two finalists after the audition for a philharmonic first chair. She is left alone with the other, Rory, a Juilliard-graduate prodigy that she insists she is better than. He says that she is not unique in her talent, but that her novelty if she gets the spot will be a fad that will burn her out and make her hard to collaborate with others. He is missing when the auditioners return, and his body is quickly found with throat torn out.
    • May 29th:
      • A seminar lecturer throws out an attendee who can not understand the complex text of the lecture, a detailed and overcomplicated view of story crafting structure in screenwriting. The lecturer introduces Ursula to the crowd, and she has given them all a sample of Muse. The lecturer objects, but she rebuffs him. She tells the crowd that success is one swallow away. Most of the crowd takes the pill in front of her. We soon see the streets filled with hungry Pale as The Chemist looks on. The streets of Los Angeles burn as she drives away with Eli.
  • June
    • June 30th:
      • Cal Cambon ostentatiously orders sake in a bar while waiting for his friends Kendall Carr, Troy Lord, and Jamie Howard. Troy and Kendall were once involved, but Cal breaks the news that he and Troy are now in a relationship. Jamie has also met a man, but she has allergic sensitivities to his semen. Many sakes later, all but Kendall are deeply engrossed in their phones. She shares that she is shedding technology from her life, based on a lecture on societal adaptation to rapid technology advancement in the last 50 years. She is equally interested in her professor Adam's "Luddite" philosophy as his charisma. She feels greatly relieved now that she is following the lead set by Adam's tech-free lifestyle. The group agree to go on a camping trip in Death Valley and leave their modern technology behind.
  • July
    • July 3rd:
      • Days of camping later, they are unable to find a pond Troy was sure had been there. The track a disturbing smell to dozens of cows slaughtered and mutilated. Kendall examines one, which has been cleanly bisected from snout to tail without any blood or rough tears. She touches the clearly dead bull, and its eyes fly open as it moos at her.
      • The group frantically pack and flee the desert site. They are an hour from the nearest town when the car goes dead (and the crickets go silent). A bright light shines on the car from above and an extraterrestrial figure approaches the vehicle. Nothing working, and without phones to call for help, the four panic as tentacles grasp them through the car windows. They pass out and soon awake in the car to darkness. They start the car and begin driving again, but quickly realize Jamie is missing. They nearly hit her as she walks in front of the car and collapses in the road. Cam picks her up and loads her into the car, and they also recognize that they awoke in different seats than where they passed out.
    • July 4th:
      • Once home, Kendall relates the story to Adam. Adam believes that Cam may have gaslit the group or drugged them all, but Kendall insists he would not have. She asks him for permission to research "lost time" on the internet, and he gently tries to dissuade her (by implying she is not serious about the Luddite lifestyle). She runs to bathroom to vomit. During a phone call with Jamie, they find they are both feeling nauseous. Jamie describes that it feels like a former pregnancy scare she had, though they both admit it is unlikely either is pregnant.
      • Cam is also feeling nauseous, and he relates the feeling to a case of Giardia he previously had. Soon Troy is feeling the urge to vomit.
      • Kendall and Jamie take pregnancy tests. Kendall uses Jamie's phone to research alien abduction. Cam and Troy arrive, still feeling poorly. When they describe their symptoms, Kendall urges them to take the same urinary pregnancy test... all four have the same positive results and appear to be pregnant.
      • The young adults rush to Jamie's OBGYN with the hope of finding answers about their rapidly developing pregnancies. After the doctor looks at Jamie's fetus on the ultrasound, she queasily leaves the room. Kendall forces Troy to an ultrasound examination, and the monitor shows an obviously non-human fetus in his abdomen. As the doctor calls (from another room) for an emergency consult, agents drive up outside the clinic. Men in black suits shoot the doctor before barging into the room where they drug the pregnant adults, knocking them out.
    • July 8th:
      • The next time Kendall wakes, they are in an all white room, laying suspended mid-air and wearing only bandage-like cloth wraps. Everyone else in the room is unconscious. A masked and hooded woman insists Kendall not wake them. The woman, who has pointed fingertips and no fingernails, calls the room a "safe space" where they can be prepared for the next phase. The woman discloses that she is not one of the ones that implanted them with the babies she calls "hope for the future", but is something else. They have been chosen and gifted an opportunity to save a planet, heavily implying that it is not Earth they are saving. With a wave of the woman's hand, Kendall falls back from consciousness and into a dream-like mental landscape.
      • In the mindscape, Kendall sits in an all-white dining hall watched over by suited men. The diners (all pregnant, both male and female) eat gelatinous cubes and are guided by robed attendants. Nearby, a woman named Calico, is speaking with Steve Jobs (who is unnerved that after 50 years of progress, humanity is still using pencils). Troy, Cal, and Jamie enter the room and upon spotting Kendall, rush to join her. They were concerned when Kendall abruptly left the mindscape (when she awoke in the physical world). Calico joins their table after the group is given their meal. She was a dancer and Las Vegas entertainer, and has been brought to the mindscape annually for decades. Troy begins to freak out and ask questions, and Calico's responses imply that the fetus will find its own way out of him rather than being surgically removed. Kendall, Cal and Jamie are advised to stay calm as the hosts carry him away.
    • July 9th:
      • Troy is woken up in another room where he goes into labor — the fetus clawing and eating its way through his abdomen. The masked woman tells him that he should focus on the future and that he will be rewarded for the pain he is enduring. She removes her mask, revealing she is a hybrid with one eye clearly reflecting her extraterrestrial heritage.
      • After 16 months, Liv has a baby named Aaron. Her housekeeper, Norma, tries to give her some parenting advice. Liv is frustrated that she can't do anything to appease her son, and feels like the baby doesn't seem to recognize her as his mother. Norma assures her it is only a matter of time.
      • Wandering the house later, Liv notices the baby monitor on the fritz. She remembers to retrieve the totem from under the bed, but it has changed and has more defined features. She places it in a shoebox in the closet. She is surprised by Matt, covered in monster makeup and fresh off shooting a scene for NCIS, in the hall. He says that Norma called him worried, and he came back for a brief break to check on her. Liv tells him that all that she wanted to be was a mother, and now she can't seem to do a good job of it. Matt insists that what she's feeling is entirely normal but he suggests seeing a professional. She doesn't want to attend therapy, but he says that his agent gave him the card for a medical doctor specializing in post-partum depression treatment. That night, Liv wakes to sounds from the baby monitor. She looks up to see a horned and winged figure standing over her child. She runs, monitor display in hand, into the baby's room and finds nothing. The monitor shows the figure standing next to her.
    • July 10th:
      • Liv describes her experience to Dr Berger. Liv fears that her son hates her, as he won't respond to her. Berger thinks the baby is detecting Liv's stress and reacting, and suggests a night nurse for a few weeks. Liv declines, but agrees to pursuing other strategies. Liv plays with Aaron during his detox bath, trying to stay upbeat. She places him in the crib, and he stays calm. Matt returns home from an acting job briefly and notices the change in Liv. Confident that she can take care of Aaron's sudden crying, she goes into his room and finds the totem statue, now more detailed and resembling the winged and horned figure from the monitor. Liv angrily confronts Norma, demanding to know why she put the totem in the crib with Aaron. Norma swears she did not, and realizing that Liv has kept the diabolical figure quits the job immediately.
      • Liv intends to hide the statue even more deeply in the house, and hears a low growling from the basement. Downstairs, she discovers claw marks where something has torn into the wall and the air conditioning ductwork. The duct suddenly falls, causing Liv to scrape her arm on an exposed nail.
      • Matt thinks a raccoon must have been in the basement, but wonders — after Liv has told him about the totem's appearance — where she got it. She claims she found it at a new age store and that it's a good luck talisman. He is creeped out by it, but also thinks she needs more sleep to get better. He won't be able to work on the show if he is taking care of her at night, and wants her to try to take better care of herself while he is away.
      • Liv searches the internet for Sumerian fertility gods and finds images of Ba'al. Realizing Ba'al is demonic in origin, she panics when she sees the full sized Ba'al on the monitor. She finds the room itself empty except for Aaron, but hears a whispered noise which she records. She plays back a recording to Matt, and insists that she hears the words "I want him".
    • July 11th:
      • Matt brings Dr Berger in for a house call, and the doctor also listens to the recording. Berger insists that Liv is finding patterns in the static that aren't there because of stress and sleep deprivation. She prescribes an anti-depressant to Liv, which Liv reluctantly begins to take.
      • At a dinner party with some of his college friends, Matt is congratulated for breaking into the business. One of them spots a Ouija board and suggests they give it a try. Matt is reluctant, but Liv says it is OK. They begin a seance, and the planchette moves to spell out "Jack Meoff" as the speaker. They laugh about it, but try again and the board spells "He is mine". Liv begins to panic and throws the board into the fire. Matt is upset that Liv has embarrassed him in front of his friends, which has brought him to a breaking point. He demands that she figure it out. Liv goes in and cradles an upset Aaron, and she sees Ba'al outside the window in the rain.
    • July 12th:
      • In the fertility clinic parking garage, Liv confronts Bernadette (the receptionist). Bernadette is a Wiccan and has a lot of lore at her home, but insists that Ba'al is supposed to be benevolent. She gives Liv a book with a banishing ritual and an athame to assist her, which Liv performs that night. Ba'al continues to whisper "He is mine". Waving the dagger in defense, she stabs Matt (who she did not see or hear enter the room) in the shoulder.
    • July 26th:
      • Matt (with his arm in a sling) visits Liv in a mental health facility. He forgives her and says that Aaron is doing well. She wants to stay until Dr Berger says it is safe and Aaron is not in danger. He leaves and enters a parking garage where Bernadette is waiting in a car. Matt and Bernadette have been conspiring to gaslight Liv into indefinite commitment to the sanitarium. Bernadette is not truly a Wiccan, and the two actors have truly committed to their parts. The remaining college friends were also in on the act. Stan added special effects to the baby monitor, the damage to the basement, and electronics to supply the devilish audio. Emma carved the figurines and her husband wore the Ba'al suit. Matt himself switched out the anti-depressants for a psychoactive cocktail and intentionally lowered his sperm count to reduce his fertility (not wanting to have a child in the first place). They filmed the entire process and intend to make money off of gaslighting Liv.
      • Matt leaves his partying friends to change Aaron's diaper, and the lights begin to flicker as fog rolls in. Ba'al has come to claim them and executes each in turn. Matt ends up in prison for his crimes after his confession. Liv comes to visit him, and he tells her that he did it because he never wanted kids. Eventually, he didn't want her either. He insists, though, that the demon killed his friends. Liv begins to leave, not wanting to listen to talk of demons from him. He begs for money for his defense, but Liv will not help him. She walks away saying that Aaron has no father.
    • July 27th:
      • At home, Liv puts Aaron to bed. Ba'al arrives, demanding to be released. Bernadette believed the banishing spell was fake; when Liv tried to use it in the hospital (with her own blood to make the sigil), she discovered it was a true summoning and binding spell. Liv set the bound Ba'al upon Matt's friends, and will release him under one condition: he seeds her with another baby.
  • August
    • A banging on the door of a leased apartment wakes Jay from a stupor. A man introducing himself as Bob Birch says he has information about Jacob. As he doesn't look like a reporter or one of Jay's malicious neighbors (who think that Jay killed his son), Jay lets him in. Bob is a hunter who has placed camera traps deep in the park. By a recently placed camera trap, Bob found a Boy Scout compass, the same Jay left with Jacob. The trap captured an image of a young man from far away. Bob mentions that the park has become overrun with illegal marijuana farmers who are also tied to human trafficking. Bob wants ten thousand dollars to bribe a grower so the grower will tell them what he knows about the boy in the picture.
    • Jay approaches Addy, who thinks Bob is scamming Jay. She won't even look at the photo, because she thinks her heart will be broken again. She can't teach and is living out of boxes. She has given up hope that Jacob is alive, and says she will not fund him.
    • Nonetheless, the couple follow Bob to the grower's camp. It's ten miles off the trail and they need to hurry before dark. As they walk, Jay asks what Addy's boyfriend thinks of the newest lead since they haven't spoken in a year. Addy admits that she broke up with her boyfriend because he wanted to start a family with her, and she believed that opportunity had passed. Though they divorced long before, Addy never blamed Jay for the breakup. Bob intervenes on their argument and tells them to move forward quickly. They trudge on, observed by a feral humanoid creature from behind a tree.
    • Bob detours the group to a ranger station. He warns that the resident is not a ranger, but a weird crazy man. Bob advises that they should avoid conversation. Stan Vogel approaches Addy, who is filling their water stores. Bob tries to bluff that they are on a sightseeing trip, but Stan recognizes the couple from news coverage about Jacob's disappearance. Stan warns the party that besides the growers, dangerous things lurk in the forest. Stan relays his own account of the night Jacob disappeared, which includes a large creature carrying Jacob. Legally, though, he says he can't admit that.
    • Resuming the trek to the growers' camp, Bob reiterates his opinion of Stan's ill mental health. Addy reminds the men of the strange occurrences, like the deer, which Bob angrily scoffs at. Jay defends Addy and the tense moment passes. They approach the grower's camp, and find it full of bloody and eviscerated human corpses. Bob admits that he conned the pair, and that he had no idea where Jacob was. He made a deal with the growers to bring them cash (and the pair's other possessions and assets), and fabricated the picture and compass. Bob is on the verge of killing the parents himself, when a "corpse" near him arises and bites into Bob's neck. Gun in hand, Bob shoots Jay as the other "corpses" also begin to move. Jay and Addy escape with a pistol as night falls.
    • Meanwhile, Stan heard a disturbing noise inside the station and armed himself to investigate. He sees Addy approach the station carrying the wounded Jay. They bring him inside the station for medical aid. The gunshot went through Jay, and Addy relays what happened to them. Stan insists that "the rules" do not allow him to tell them the truth about what is outside coming for them, though he relents when Jay aims the pistol at him.
    • Stan says it is neither Bigfoot nor the Australian "yowie". The United States National Park System was created, he says, to keep the general public from being eaten by the "Feral Nation": a subpopulation of cannibalistic and inbred humans living wild in pockets of each National Park. Their origins are unclear, and perhaps as old as the earliest settlements of the continent. Stan believes that the frequent disappearances in the parks are covered up because the parks themselves generate vast tourism revenue. Stan suggests the two think back to Jacob's search party and recall anything odd. Addy remembers a group of Army Rangers, allegedly attached to the search via the California National Guard. The soldiers went into the woods and didn't come back out; Stan says that such units are sent in to cull the feral population in sweeps. He says that the ferals that took Jacob didn't survive the day. He doesn't know what happened to Jacob, nor what has the feral anxious now. He does intend to radio for backup and report that the ferals are out of their containment zone.
    • The pair reconcile while Stan calls in to deliver his report, but before he can finish he is tackled by a feral that was crouched in a corner of the ceiling. More ferals crash through the station windows and menace the couple. The feral attacking Stan corrals him back into the main room with the others, where Stan trips and falls to the ground. The ferals quickly set upon him and tear him apart, eating his organs. Jay and Addy escape, but are soon surrounded in the woods. They look up to see a skeletal throne, on which sits a boy with a crown of thorns. The compass still hands from Jacob's neck.
    • Hoping for a reprieve from their son, he greets them with a "Boo", as if he's been playing a 10 year game of Hide and Seek. A feral elder approaches and asks in their language "Who are these people?". Jacob responds to him "Dinner." His parents are quickly torn apart, and he tastes a drop of blood that has landed on his cheek. August 22nd:
      • Michael and Troy sing to "A Whiter Shade of Pale" on the car radio, while their annoyed daughter Scarlett begs them to stop. They are the newest residents of the "Murder House". An ominous mobile of animal bones hangs outside. Scarlett explores the premises, still under renovation. The family knows the alleged history of the massacres that took place within, and intend to turn it into a tourist attraction. Scarlett is worried about failure far more than they are concerned about ghosts.
      • While she unpacks, a red ball rolls towards Scarlett's feet. Looking for the source, a closet door opens. Inside hangs the Rubber Man suit. Scarlett takes it back to her room and quickly dresses in it, admiring the effect in the mirror. Blackened eyes glare back at her, and she quickly tosses it in the outside garbage can.
    • August23rd:
      • In school, Scarlett distractedly listens to a lecture on the nature of the brain. When asked, she says that shame is a far greater motivator than fear. Maya, a model, flirts with her once class ends.
      • In her room, Scarlett imagines being with Maya sexually. The fantasy quickly turns violent, and Scarlett squirts at the thought of choking Maya. Once asleep, Rubber Man descends from Scarletts ceiling — though this too is seemingly a nighmarish fantasy that wakes her in a cold sweat.
    • August 24th:
      • Maya slips into Scarlett's DMs, and they both muse about not being out publicly at school. Maya invites Scarlett for a sleepover with other friends on Tuesday, which initially concerns Scarlett. Maya swears that she will protect Scarlett from her friends.
    • August 25th:
      • As Michael and Troy continue the remodeling, uncovering the disturbing mural on the walls of the old music room. They call her aside and confront her about sadistic porn that they have discovered she has been watching. They are concerned, because this has happened before and they feel she may be unable to normalize her dark tastes later. They ground her for lying about stopping, but she quickly begs to have therapy in exchange for allowance to go to Maya's party.
    • August 26th:
      • In her room, Scarlett is trying to decide what to wear, and finds her current selection lacking and her internet browsing locked down. Her closet door opens, exposing the Rubber Man suit, into which she quickly dresses. Once again, her eyes blacken. She enters her fathers' bedroom with a kitchen knife in hand. This terrifies her parents until she takes off the hood. They demand she get rid of it, and she reflexively slashes Troy's arm.
    • August 27th:
      • The family is visited by Dr. Andi Grant, a therapist who responds that the porn habits are normal but that the violent act the night before was not. The therapist feels that such behavior has to have a cause, and is not on the same level as simple pranks. Troy describes Scarlett's kidnapping (for 10 days) when Scarlett was 3. Scarlett was not harmed and doesn't remember the incident, but her parents became overprotective and think it may have had an effect on her. The therapist is more concerned about the home in which they're living, and all the dark history behind it. The hour ends, and the therapist excuses herself. As she leaves, Michael insists that Scarlett will not be attending the slumber party. Scarlett leaves angry, heading to her room.
      • Maya texts the grounded Scarlett, wondering where she is. Scarlett explains the circumstances, and Maya responds with a sugestion that Scarlett sneak out. She does, slipping past her sleeping fathers. At the slumber party, Maya's friends muse about their generation being superficial and fake. Maya responds that Scarlett is the only "real" person present, and that she stands up for her convictions. One friend suggests that it's because Scarlett is a lesbian, which is met by shushing that Scarlett isn't out yet. Scarlett explains that she simply doesn't want to be objectified or fetishized for her sexuality. Maya and Scarlett leave the living room to retrieve some pajamas, and Maya is impressed by Scarlett's lingerie. They become intimate, but Scarlett questions how serious Maya's intentions are. Maya insists she is serious, and they begin to make out. Scarlett admits that she is a virgin, which Maya is concerned about (as she doesn't know what to do). Scarlett explains her BDSM fetish, which intrigues Maya. Scarlett's phone begins chiming, and she sees her friend Shanti's iMessages giving her a warning that Maya has set her up and that her BDSM confession is being live-streamed through Instagram. She runs past Maya's laughing friends, humiliated. Once in the car, a call to Shanti confirms that the stream saw her undressed and talking in detail about the fetish. She drives home, weeping, and does not wake her fathers in bed.
      • Scarlett calls Maya to tell her that she intends to kill herself and leave a note explaining Maya and her friends' actions driving her to it. This would ruin their lives and they could be found criminally liable. Scarlett threatens that she will do it unless they all come to her house immediately. The Rubber Man suit is next to her on her bed.
      • The four friends warily enter the Murder House through the open door. The door slams closed behind them and they can not reopen it. Scarlett texts the four to come down to the basement. Troy and Bryan await them at the bottom of the stairs as the upper door locks them in. The lights flicker and darken, and Infantata chases them into Scarlett (now the Rubber Woman) who stabs them all.
    • August 28th:
      • The next morning, the fathers find Scarlett remodeling. They think she has turned over a new leaf, and invite her to breakfast below. Once they have left, the therapist (now a ghost) suggests they have a session. Scarlett feels she has resolved her issues, and opens a door to find the Rubber Man waiting for her on the other side.
  • September
    • September 8th:
      • A couple, Chad and Kelley, makes out on a bed while Bob Ross plays in the background playing on Chad's iMac (it's dated Sept.8 on Chad's notebook). Kelly is not comfortable with taking the next sexual step after six months of dating. She leaves after he gets frustrated about moving too slowly. Discussing it later with his friends at a skate park, Chad claims that the Bob Ross was meant to provoke an ASMR response to get Kelley in the proper frame of mind. His friend counter-suggests that sparking fear will be more effective; but Chad laments that horror now is lame. The local drive-in will be playing a "cursed" film, "Rabbit Rabbit", which allegedly prompted patrons to kill each other. Chad's friends offer a free ticket to him for a limited showing of a rare print of the film.
      • Later in his room, Chad watches a video clip of Tipper Gore's 1986 Congressional hearing testimony regarding "Rabbit Rabbit" on his iPad.
    • September 9th:
      • Kelley discusses her reluctance to have sex with her friend, Dee. Dee thinks Kelley is afraid, but she says she is not. Chad approaches, apologizing for pressuring her. He invites her to the drive-in the next night.
      • Later that evening, when the screening approaches, cars begin to fill the drive-in theater. Ruth, a protester who swears she was there in 1986, tries to drive cars away. Drive-in workers Tillis and Verna debate sending the protester away, but Verna says to hold off. She is more concerned that the film print hasn't been delivered. The theater's financial future depends on the success of the screening. Chad and Kelley arrive and park, then walk to get concessions. They find Milo and Quinn, excited about the screening (and noting that an encore screening is scheduled for the next day elsewhere). Chad explains that the title of the film is an old British superstition, and that saying it at the beginning of the month brings good luck. Spotting Dee, Kelley peels off to get snacks. Ruth calls Chad over to plead with him to sabotage the screening. She claims that her boyfriend ripped out her eye (with his teeth) and swallowed it during the last screening of the film. Ruth continues screaming at him as he walks away, insisting that the chaos will start as soon as the film does.
      • In the projection room, the hooded delivery driver has instructions from the print's owner on how the film is to be projected. Verna scoffs that she knows what she's doing.
      • Cuddling together in the car, Kelley reminds Chad that tonight is their six month anniversary and that she wants it to be special. In their own car, Milo and Dee are on a date. Dee is very forward, with his head quickly in Milo's lap. Alone in his car parked between the two couples, Quinn looks to each and feels left out.
      • Dee looks up at the screen briefly and seems to react, as does Kelley. Verna and most of the other patrons become captivated by the onscreen imagery. Their eyes become bloodshot and change rapidly. Chad hears strange noises coming from another car, and seeing the car rocking dismisses it as intimate action.
      • Meanwhile, Ruth has managed to sneak into the projection booth. About to pull the plug on the projector, she is stopped by Tillis. Verna turns, her eyes fully black and her face and body ravaged by strange colored veins. Verna charges Ruth to the ground, gabs a pair of scissors from a nearby table, and impales Ruth's remaining eye with them.
      • Dee has had a similar transformation and bites off chunks of Milo's genitals. Dee spits them to the floor and attacks Milo. Another patron has broken into Chad's car and menaces the couple in the back seat. Kelley jumps into the driver's seat and quickly takes off, dropping the invader to the ground as the car moves. She clips other cars in a frenzy, and hits other transformed patrons as she looks for the exit. She recognizes the one stuck on the hood as a transformed Dee. Dee smashes against the windshield, shattering it. Unable to see, Kelley collides with the concession building and crushes Dee. Chad and a dazed Kelley escape into the building on foot, pursued by the transformed.
      • Locking themselves inside the projection room, they find Tillis completely dismembered and Ruth disemboweled. Kelley claims their faces were chewed off. The couple notes that neither have their phones, and Chad finds the landline is dead. He looks outside to see the crazed movie-goers mauling each other and flipping cars to get into them. Verna emerges to attack Kelley, and Chad defends her by beating in her head with a film reel. Finally, he pulls the reel from the projector and collapses.
    • September 10th:
      • The next morning, smoke is rising from some cars as Chad wakes. Kelley notes that some of the remaining transformed ran off, but that more carnage is possible if they go out to retrieve their phones. They decide that the police will be of no help. She offers to use the shotgun she found behind the desk to "cancel" the next screening. Chad is inspired to intercept the second print from wherever the delivery service picked it up. He arms himself with the scissors embedded in Ruth's head, and they make their way out. Dee is dead on the hood of Chad's car, but Quinn walks up slowly behind the pair. Despite Chad's pleas, Quinn attacks him and Chad is forced to fatally stab his friend.
      • They find a truck and drive it to the source of the film, a trailer parked alongside a Rolls-Royce. Inside the trailer, Larry Bitterman argues with the television showing news coverage of the incident at the drive-in. When the pair confronts him, he claims not to know what they're talking about. He swears that the 4chan post about the second screening is misinformed, and that there is no additional print copy. He wonders why the two were unaffected by what was on the screen, and assumes they were distracted by having sex. He is ecstatic that the 100% response to the film's subliminal imagery had such a profound impact on the brain's fear center. He laments that The Exorcist only had two subliminal frames of a demon's face, and it had people vomiting and going into labor. He claims to have worked on that film and to have perfected the techniques with his own. He discovered his editor, Lanie, cutting off her own fingers during post-production. He knew audiences were ready for more, and held a special screening in one regional theater.
      • Furious that Tipper Gore thwarted him, he had been sentenced to 15 years in prison for his attack on her. He spent that time further researching and refining his personal workprint. He insists that the couple have been witnesses to history. Chad knows that the print projected the night before was not a workprint because there were no tape splices. Bitterman begs for his life's work as Chad burns the film reel on the stove. As the pair exit the burning trailer, he yells after that this is only the end of the first act and that their "horror film" isn't over yet.
      • Aroused by their victory, the pair return to Chad's room to finally have sex. On his computer, Netflix promotes its new trending release: "Rabbit Rabbit". Outside the window, parts of the Los Angeles skyline erupt into flame.
  • October
    • October 28th:
      • A woman with a switchblade chases a ghostly Gladys down the stairs to the basement, where Rubber Woman Scarlett awaits. Together, they make short work of stabbing the ghost nurse to "death". Elated, the two women relax together in the tub. The new woman describes her interactions with her sadistic uncle Tony when she was young, while Scarlett explores the woman's nude scarred back. Her story continues with her reveal that Tony was never actually her uncle, and that her parents had sold her to him. She had spent 10 years of her thinking her parents were dead, when they had simply abandoned her. She returned to Los Angeles and decided to kill herself in the Murder House, thinking it would make the news. Instead, the realtor listing the house buried her in the backyard. She urges Scarlett to kill herself so that the two can be together forever. Scarlett considers this as the ghost vanishes into the bathwater.
    • October 29th:
      • Investigators looking for the missing girls explain that they know Scarlett called Maya after the livestream and that cell phone positioning shows them all driving to the Murder House the night they disappeared. Though the car was found at Maya's house, the cell phones disappeared at the Murder House. They say they will be in touch. Scarlett's fathers ask her if there's something she wants to tell them, but Scarlett jokingly suggests a ghost killed them.
      • That night in her room, Scarlett is visited by her therapist, who again wants to schedule a session. The ghosts of the missing four girls impale the ghost and menace Scarlett. The ghostly teen from before arrives to scare them away.
    • October 30th:
      • At a therapy session, the fathers tell Dr Grant that they are concerned that even Scarlett's friend Shanti does not visit. Troy discloses that Michael "thinks" he saw the ghost of Piggy Man, as Grant and Scarlett are unamused. Troy wants them to sell and cut their losses, but Michael is scared that the rumors about the haunted house might be true. Scarlett says that she wants to stay.
      • Troy shows contractor Adam around the renovations. Adam is not pleased by what he sees in the amateur work. Troy admits that they have been dipping into their savings to finish the work, and is close to begging for a low bidding contractor. Michael interrupts the two and they banter before Adam leaves to compose a bid. Michael is not amused that Troy is being cruel by flirting with Adam. Michael is desperate to move out of the house and frustrated at the suffering their marriage is taking while they stay.
    • October 31st:
      • Emily gives birth to Timothy's son. AHSW-Apocalypse-Full.png
      • Troy is indeed cheating with Adam. Adam's associate Martin interrupts them to draw their attention to the chimney shaft Scarlett finished earlier. There is a decay smell coming from it, and Adam demolishes the wall to reveal the corpses of the four missing girls. Adam quickly bludgeons Martin to keep the discovery secret. Adam, too, has secret legal problems and does not want to have further issues. He suggests Martin's corpse be added to the others in the crawlspace. He wants to partner with the pair to get the haunted bed and breakfast running, and also to have sexual privileges with them. Michael is furious at the blackmail attempt and Troy's infidelity, and tries to rush Adam out of the house. Rubber Man meets them on the porch and fatally stabs Adam before he can cross the threshold. They try to flee, and find they can not leave the house. They then realize they are ghosts.
      • Scarlett arrives home and calls after her dads. She finds the exposed crawlspace with new corpses added, and her dads bodies in their bedroom. In a surprise session with Dr Grant, the parents are surprised that they did not remember being murdered; the therapist explains that it's common to repress the trauma of their own murders. She muses that she and the other therapist are working on a book about the phenomenon. Scarlett explains to the ghosts that her girlfriend killed them to keep her around; while they may think it is not safe for her, she has no intention of leaving. She leaves to get dressed for a Halloween outing. She dons the Rubber Man suit, and — because of the special Halloween rules for ghosts — is able to leave with her ghostly girlfriend. Overhearing this new wrinkle in the rules, the four teen girls plot to kill Scarlett outside the house.
      • While they muse on life after death, Scarlett makes Ruby (her girlfriend) promise that she won't cut her life short. As they explore street faire, they encounter Shanti. Shanti is upset that Scarlett pays her little attention now that Ruby is in her life, and Shanti runs off. Scarlett follows her, and tries to talk her down. Shanti believes Scarlett has not returned to school — not because she's traumatized — because Scarlett fits the traits of a psychopath. Scarlett tries to explain that she keeps Shanti away for her own safety, but Shanti knows that Scarlett killed the girls. She has covered for her former friend out of guilt, but now wants nothing to do with her. Scarlett leaves, and Maya's foursome takes the opportunity to attempt an attack on Shanti. Before they can hurt her, Ruby emerges to protect Shanti. The girls leave, and Ruby says they will not bother Shanti again. Shanti urges Ruby that if she really loves Scarlett that she will set her free.
      • Scarlett wanders a "haunted house", and finds Ruby enjoying some carnage. Maya and the three girls track Scarlett down, as they have realized that Scarlett is vulnerable off-premises and will die without becoming a ghost. Ruby tells her to run, and they give chase. Nicole, one of the four, is recognized by William, her brother.
  • November
    • November 1st:
      • Scarlett hides until Ruby finds her, and they walk home. The four girls bar Scarlett's entry, and Scarlett pleads with Ruby that she needs to live her life elsewhere. She just wants an opportunity to get her things and say goodbye to her dads. William asks Nicole if he can tell about her to mom and dad. As they enter, Nicole tells William that the police should find the bodies in the house, and Ruby chimes in that he should claim Ruby killed them all.
      • The family says their goodbyes, and Scarlett leaves the Murder House. Ruby hugs her on the way out, and they profess their love for each other.
    • November 4th:
      • Troy Lord is about to give birth, and Theta enters his mind to calm and still him. She opens his abdomen with a laser scalpel. An attendant pulls a pod from Troy's body, then cuts it open to reveal a hybrid baby. Though the baby is strong, it still has obvious alien physical characteristics (namely, both eyes). As the closest hybridization attempt yet, Theta instructs that it should be stored. The newborn's throat is cut as it is placed in preservation fluid. Troy gasps and strains trying to get to the baby, but is quickly subdued by Theta.
    • November 12th:
      • One week later, he rejoins his friends in the dining room. He explains that he delivered the baby, to which he was psychically connected, before it was slaughtered. Cal comforts his boyfriend, as they lament the experience. Calico walks over to the table to dissuade the group from plans to escape. Since 1969 she has produced two or three offspring a year, and in that time no one has escaped Area 51. She takes them on a tour of the "moon landing" set, telling them of how the historic event was staged: Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin — who were supposed to be in orbit — were in her bar talking about how they improvised the lines said. During the night she spent with the astronauts, suited men abducted her. She awoke implanted with a fetus and began wandering the facility, eventually finding the set and director Stanley Kubrick. The landing hoax was meant as propaganda to guide the public into believing rapid technological advancement was plausible. She thanks them for their time and leaves, with the group finding peace "on the moon".
    • November 13th:
      • Jamie and Kendall are summoned to the cafeteria along with the other subjects. They notice the men are missing, and ask Calico what is going on. The two do their own search and find the bodies on the set. Jamie and Kendall both spontaneously go into labor and Theta restrains them in the birthing lab. Jamie's progeny is delivered and quickly dispatched, soon after followed by Jamie herself.
      • When Kendall delivers, the newborn is "perfect" in Theta's eyes, and the hybrid doctor declares the long experiment over. Kendall says that the victory will be short lived and the invaders will find themselves bored and complacent now that they have done what they set out to do. Theta addresses Kendall's concerns by beheading the new mother with a laser scalpel. Technicians bring in a mechanical device to replace Kendall's head, leaving behind an ideal breeding machine.
    • November 14th:
      • Mamie celebrates a birthday alongside Calico (her only true friend) with a cupcake. Mamie is less enthusiastic now that she's immortal. They notice the cafeteria is abuzz with the excited news about the first successful full extraterrestrial hybrid. Thor relates to Mamie that the host womb will be cloned and the facility will quickly mass produce hybrids for conquering and replacing humanity. Mamie was unaware of this part of the plan, and that she will be one of the few humans spared genocide. Thor also discloses that the extraterrestrials long ago made treaty with the Reptilian race and they will share the Earth in absence of humans.
      • Mamie finds herself blocked from Theta's lab, but the doctor introduces herself and invites the former First Lady to see the newborn. Mamie is taken off-guard by the beauty of the newborn, who has enlarged eyes compared to humans. Kendall's body is nearby in the lab, and Mamie quickly recovers to condemn Theta's practice of reducing the woman to a machine. Theta reminds Mamie that humanity has given over most of their control to machines worldwide. Mamie realizes that Theta has not been informed of her superiors' plan to exterminate humanity.
      • Calico, too, is incredulous about the plan. Mamie suggests to her friend that they fight back. They plot getting close to the newborn and the Kendall-machine to destroy them and set back the extraterrestrial plan. Theta shows the two women the new developments: the gestation cycle has been accelerated to a newborn produced every day, soon to be optimized to hours of development between births. Mamie takes on the responsibility herself of killing the newborn and is quickly frozen in place by Theta. The doctor was not truly aligned with the women's conspiracy, and is ashamed of her human heritage. She takes the scalpel from Mamie and tells them that humanity has had its chance. Calico's reward is to be the spiritual mother for the new generation to come, and Theta explodes Mamie's head. Together, they deliver another perfect specimen.
  • December
    • December 16th:
      • A serial killer murders a man, who is supposed to shift as a mall Santa on the 23rd of December, and takes his santa suit. He cuts him up and puts his body in a gift box.
    • December 21st:
      • the Bro House, a YouTube channel group made up of Zinn, Barry, Wyatt, and James, film a man about to jump from a bridge in a suicide attempt. Rather than try to stop him, they document it for their stream. Barry mentions that they won't be able to post it, but Zinn convinces him to follow the body to where it fell in an aqueduct.
      • Later at a Christmas party, Zinn is still trying to convince Barry to post, reminding him that they are about to age out of their influencer careers. They upload while the partygoers watch the new posting live, expecting the new content will push them over 5 million subscribers. Instead, the disgusted guests begin leaving.
    • December 22nd:
      • 10:03 AM PST:
        • The boys have Zinn read comments from TikTok, Youtube,and Instagram, the backlash has lost them millions of viewers and prompts thousands of angry comments, petitions to deplatform the four, and a press conference from the dead man's family. They refuse to apologize to pander sympathy, and instead start discussing gay-oriented stunts to boost popularity. Again, Barry objects and Wyatt agrees that such content would be exploitative and far worse. The argument goes unfinished as movers arrive to repossess promotional items around the house, as the four just lost their sponsorship.
      • Their next video features Zinn and Wyatt complimenting each other while they exercise, each sentence punctuated with "no homo". The audience can tell how inauthentic the videos have become, and more backlash ensues.
    • December 23rd:
      • Barry suggests they return to their authentic roots, and the men agree. They walk through a mall, and decide to visit a Santa's Workshop. The "elf" assisting at the installation recognizes them and after some rude innuendo she insists they leave. Barry continues to film as the other three invade, spoiling the experience for all the attending children. Zinn decides to give Santa a twerking lap dance and Santa insists the men will get what they deserve. They run from security as Santa looks on.
    • December 24th:
      • Now that it's Christmas Eve, the four post the new video over Barry's protests. Wyatt suggests that Barry may no longer be a good fit for the group and that he should move out. This leads to a verbal fight, which Zinn and James try to break up. The immediate comments on the video start to roll in, and the followers continue to leave. Wyatt wanders to the garage, and Zinn receives a phone call from the police.
      • The detective has questions about the incident at the mall. She mentions that the Santa at the installation was not the man hired for the job; the hired Santa was just found dead in his own home. She wants the men to come the next morning to the police along with the recording. She looks at the dismembered corpse, stuffed into a gift box. The detective has told Zinn that there is a pattern of replaced mall Santas across the country.
      • Wyatt finds an unexpected camera in the back of the refrigerator, but before he can investigate it he is attacked from behind. "Santa" twists around Wyatt's head 180º, sure to get the snap on the recording. Before anyone notices he is gone, the remaining three notice a new upload of his comeuppance. While James thinks it is a prank, Zinn goes to talk to Wyatt. The "likes" pour in, and Barry decides to delete it regardless. Moments later, the video re-appears with a link to a news article about the "true" origins of the Santa mythos: a wild man who punished the naughty.
      • Zinn does not find the camera, but does find the killer. The older man beats Zinn with a club, wraps him in a string of lights, and stuffs his mouth full of mistletoe before tossing him into the pool. Zinn's electrocution knocks out the power to the house.
      • Seeing their friend's corpse, James calls the emergency hotline. The dispatcher is reluctant to send police to the well-known address, thinking it is a prank. They try to leave, seeing the new execution quickly uploaded to their channel. The killer, firing a crossbow from the roof, pins James to the hood of the car before shooting a bolt through his head. Barry, shot through the thigh, crawls back into the safety of the house and locks himself in. He can not call for help, as his phone was destroyed by the same bolt. He wraps the wound in his mantle stocking as he hears the killer approach.
      • The chimes of the channel's comments remind Barry that there is a laptop nearby. He tries to comment for help about being attacked, but his comment is disregarded as evidence of a prank.
