AMERICAN HORROR STORIES SEASON 1 END EXPLANATION
The opening sequence of Episode 7 of American Horror Stories makes viewers believe that a young couple of AHS fanatics are just spending the night in the show’s Murder House. As they are attacked by the ghosts of the House of Murder from stories as well as other American Horror Story villains like Bloodyface and Twisty the Clown, they realize that the series’ ghosts and its sinister backstory are not. only a TV show.
But they’re very real until the episode goes onscreen saying “Game Over” as a teenage boy is seen playing the young couple in an American Horror Story video game that his mother is designing.
During “Game Over,” the episode switches from what happens in the video game to what happens in real life with Michelle and Rory, without really knowing when these changes are happening. Following the first twist of the Escape From Murder House video game, American Horror Stories makes the rest of the episode feel real, with Rory and Michelle burning Murder House after it is killed by the ghost inhabitants.
After an apparent reunion between Scarlett and Ruby from “Rubber Woman,” where they live in an apartment on the former Murder House property, American Horror Stories suddenly changes the subject to reveal that all the events of Murder House took place in the finalized version of American Horror Story video game by Michelle.
Most of the American Horror Stories episode felt like an American Horror Story fan meta-story, but the ending of Game Over suggests otherwise. After Rory finishes the video game Murder House, the two men head out in search of food, wondering what happened to the house’s ghosts after they burnt down in the game. A few seconds later, the camera shifts under a chair, where Beau Langdon’s characteristic red ball can be seen rolling before the screen turns black.
It could mean that what happened in the game translated into real life, much like the fictional Rabbit movie, Rabbit from American Horror Stories Episode 3 turned people into versions. cannibals are zombified on their own in real life.
Beau’s bullet could also mean that all of the events of the episode actually happened and Michelle simply turned her experience into a video game. In this case, Michelle would still be a ghost, she just chose to escape into the world to be with Rory, like what Beau apparently chose to do.
If the ghosts of American Horror Stories are all free to roam the world if they wish, Beau may have just decided to move on with Michelle and Rory because he remembered them and thought they were ‘they would play with him.
