This post contains spoilers for the most recent episode of American Horror Story: Roanoke.
Hours before the fifth episode of American Horror Story: Roanoke hit FX, creator Ryan Murphy cleared up a pressing question. "Evan Peters makes his season debut in tonight's American Horror Story," he wrote on Twitter. "And no, he's not playing a producer."
This was a revelation for AHS fans, who have spent most of the sixth season wondering where Peters was lurking. Was the series veteran one of the background colonialists? Was he yet to be introduced, a My Roanoke Story crew member, as Murphy so quickly shut down? Or was he something great, the spawn of Lady Gaga's satanic witch?
The answer: something altogether different. Peters finally arrived to the show in "Chapter Five" -- and in a most flamboyant, petulant, and curious manner. The intro to the episode introduced us to Edward Philippe Mott, an ancestor of American Horror Story: Freak Show's Gloria Mott, the heiress played by Frances Conroy, and her son Dandy, the serial killer in training.
