"She wanted a better life. She wanted something more. She found us."
Through crowds of clowns, we've seen a non-made-up woman appear in background shots, and in some cases, on a table, surrounded by cultists in ritual mode. She isn't instantly recognizable -- perhaps a proxy for one of Murphy's go-to actors? -- but like most cult stories, it sounds like someone will be running away from real life to find solace in the group hug of a malicious clown troupe.
Could the runaway be Billie Lourd, daughter of the late Carrie Fisher who broke out in a big way on Murphy's underrated Scream Queens? It's possible: on Cult's countdown site, Lourd was revealed as "Winter Anderson" in the new season.
