I think I now grasp the idea that Kai was never actually a Trump supporter, per se, but wanted Trump to win simply because it would sow chaos which is exactly what he needs for his agenda. It might also appeal to Ivy who suddenly deals labeled in a Trump world. Wow, do I hate her. However, all are far more capable, competent, interesting, and far more compelling characters for me than Ally to my eyes at this point. It makes a nice feel-good story when people come together to help after a tragedy like an earthquake or a hurricane. Now if Ivy was paired off with Chas i think charcters name is Bob but we are all gonna call him Chas aren't we? One could never get confused between Pill's character here and the one she played on Pillars of the Earth; or Porter's character here and the one she played on True Blood. This was almost too much for me.
Save for when she put on the terrible fake British accent last year. I am so glad we got to see it's actually key players behind the masks. Is she one of the clowns who killed Serena? I just don't believe that he'd give her that power. Last time we saw Kai recruiting them and now they are already committing ritualistic murders together. Just because you are on different sides doesn't mean you are on different sides. That's what makes this especially so heinous. Kai is selecting the people who are already on the edge of a breakdown.
You also have him calling the brother instead of the police. I wonder if maybe Meadow is still part of all of it and told Ally that Ivy was part of it to help push Ally over the edge. It was fun to see the collection of cult members working together, and I loved Kai's back story. As to what he wants this new world to look like, I'm still unclear on that part. And what did Ozzy do that would cause his mother to take away his other parent, allow Winter to traumatize him by showing him murder videos, allow his pet to be murdered, and allow scary clowns to haunt him.
Ivy up to this point may not have wanted to kill Ally but she knows all her triggers and I doubt Ally is hard to trigger. I'm wondering if maybe he killed the father and expected his mother to be grateful only to have her be upset with him so he turned around and killed her too before she called the police. She's in it up to her hipster glasses. This is the only way you can make sure that calls from your targets go to the members of your conspiracy without anything appearing to be suspicious. How does she see this as better for Ozzy, especially after everything she's putting him through? Though they are far less famous and celebrated than Paulson, they are simply putting in a stronger and more complex performance here. Make everyone afraid and burn it all down.
Yes, Sarah in this season so far is having a meltdown every week. That's the sort of thing one would want to handle quickly and with two people it's even easier. So we called it on Ivy being involved but what, exactly, is endgame with Ally? But it does seem like Kai wanted her gone as a weak link. The same thing seems to be true to a lesser extent of Adina Porter, Lelsie Grossman, and the rest. Killing my editor would not allow me to publish anything I wanted-another editor would be appointed and would enforce the same policies. It's necessary for story purposes but I don't know that I'll ever quite believe it. Hope's motivation is simple power.
Make everyone afraid and burn it all down. I can't tell if she's acting or if this is real. I had to cover my eyes for the brain nailing but this was another great episode. Why are they harassing her without killing her? However, I'm still unclear exactly what Kai's ultimate agenda is. He didn't deserve anything like this neither did Ally. Am I really supposed to believe she is terrorizing her wife, removing her from her child and adoptive parents are every bit a parent as bio ones , leaving her with no money just because she voted wrong? That might appeal to Bob who feels like he has been unfairly labeled because he is a heterosexual male.
Beverly is really power hungry damn. Was the scene with her in the grave and pounding on the window more gaslighting of Ally--or is she really in danger? It didn't seem like Ma and Pa Anderson were terribly social, and it is totally possible there are no other living relatives, so maybe a 'Mom and Dad retired to Florida, gosh I miss them! He was almost normal in the flashback. I don't think she actually cares what group she belongs to as long as she is treated fairly and given fair say. I might watch one more episode but unless they give Ally a little fight back power, I'm out. The brother gave the cult the tip on when his patient would be getting home with her husband. It was revealed in this episode that Ally owns the building that houses the restaurant.
That city councilman had him pegged accurately from episode one. I'm still wondering where they get Kai and ally being a love story for the ages. Ally mentioned a biological need to see her son which makes me think she is the bio mom. I think the story would have needed a few more steps to show their descent into outright killings. All are morally suspect and compromised.
