American Horror Story is a show of continual and often downright unfathomable surprises. Each episode is usually filled with some meme-worthy moment or a plotline that leaves social media reeling, and based on the premiere of American Horror Story: 1984, it would appear as if creator Ryan Murphy is continuing that tradition.
AHS comes with a lot of important, can't-miss details, and Entertainment Weekly noted that last night's premiere featured the return of a former character. Surprise, it wasn't Madison Montgomery, but The Night Stalker is back, and he's as terrifying as ever.
EW reports that the premiere included an appearance from the character Richard Ramirez, a serial killer known as The Night Stalker. If you had been paying attention during season five, you may have noticed this isn't the first time that Ramirez has been featured on the show. Actor Zach Villa also made a brief appearance in American Horror Story: Hotel.
In season five, The Night Stalker was a minor character who showed up for a stay at the Hotel Cortez, but it would appear that this season of AHS will feature a lot more of Ramirez. As EW notes, the premiere episode featured an unwanted interaction between Ramirez and Emma Roberts's character, Brooke, and Villa's current IMDB résumé includes a 10-episode stay on the series. However, another terrorizing presence is expected to join the series, as the show's trailer hinted at an appearance from Mr. Jingles. It's not exactly clear how and if the two killers will face off, but thankfully, we still have plenty more new episodes to watch through our fingers in terror.
