“Game Over,” the final episode of the first season of American Horror Stories, featured a number of perplexing twists and an uncertain conclusion. On “Rubber Woman,” the first episode of American Horror Stories, several cast members and characters return for the season 1 finale. Many familiar names and characters from American Horror Story: Murder House and past AHS seasons appear, including the return of Jamie Brewer as Murder House’s Adelaide Langdon.
The Real Meaning Behind Game Over’s Twist Ending
Toward the end of the episode, Rory expresses gratitude for his mother’s success. However, there is a wicked twist in store for us. They muse aloud as they depart for supper, wondering aloud if those who had been freed from Murder House will travel to the great beyond or be released into the wider world. Even with the final shot — a red ball rolling across the floor as a sign of the Murder House spirit — another can of worms is opened.
How does Michelle and Rory’s reality compare to the “American Horror Story” universe? There is a possibility that Michelle is actually a ghost, and the story she tells in the episode is only part of her video game. It’s impossible to determine for sure based on the information we have at our disposal. To be fair, this was an “American Horror Story” episode, so the red ball twist could have nothing to do with Michelle and Rory.
Explanation of the Murder House twist in Game Over’s video game Murder House
An American Horror Stories episode 7’s opening sequence presents an AHS fan couple as overnight guests in the show’s Murder House. They realize that the show’s ghosts and its sinister history aren’t just a television show, it’s real – that is until the episode cuts to the screen saying “Game Over” as a teenager is seen playing the young couple in an American Horror Story video game his mother is designing. It’s difficult to tell when the episode flips between the virtual world and Michelle and Rory’s real-world in “Game Over,” making it difficult to follow along.
This episode of American Horror Stories appears to be true following the opening Escape From Murder House video game twist, with Rory and Michelle destroying Murder House after Rory is killed by the ghostly residents. Scarlett and Ruby from “Rubber Woman” appear to be getting back together and moving into the old house where “Murder House” used to be, but American Horror Story quickly switches to reveal that everything that happened there was actually part of Michelle’s finalized version of the American Horror Story video game.
“Game Over” brought an end to the “AHS” Murder House saga? What we want to know will be answered in Season 2.
When Rory learns of his mother’s death, he vows to burn down the Murder House in order to bring a stop to the years of crimes that have taken place there. Rory and Scarlett make it out of the blaze, but the old AHS mansion perishes in the conflagration. Scarlett buys the property using her new job as a paid assassin, which includes the construction of condominiums on the land.
Ruby, Scarlett’s longtime girlfriend, welcomes her back and says that while the others had gone on, she remained in the hopes that Scarlett would return. Ryan Murphy has duped us yet again, we realize in the heat of the moment. Even though Michelle’s visit to the Murder House appeared to be all part of the game, when Beauregard Langdon’s ball rolls into the frame, supporters begin to wonder if the Murder House story isn’t ended yet. Game Over’s ending twist suggests that Michelle’s video game was rooted in reality, which will likely be explained when the series returns for Season 2.
On Hulu, American Horror Stories’ first season is currently available.
What Was Real In Game Over?
Michelle and Rory’s lives aren’t always easy to distinguish from the Escape From Murder House game…. Episode 7 of American Horror Stories appears to have only a few genuine moments where Rory and Michelle are alone in their own home.
In this episode’s opening sequence, Rory and Michelle’s argument over whether or not they understand the show’s content, and Michelle’s binge-watching and note-taking of the series, as well as the episode’s conclusion, in which Rory finishes the game and they leave to get food, could be taken as real events in the real world in “Game Over.”.
