It was a bloody night on FX on Wednesday as another series of American Horror Story drew to a close. Roanoke was all about hitting every kitchy horror cliché in the book: haunted house in the middle of nowhere, demons possessing innocents, creepy ghost children, and a lot of running through the woods. And many fans loved it.

Finished season 6 of American Horror Story, brilliant show, probably my most favourite season of the show yet. Great ending too. #AHS6

Not everyone was impressed. The story picked over the outcome of the ninth episode in an attempt to find out what led Lee to become a murderer. It was American Crime Story meets American Horror Story, trippy, confusing and meta AF. As some pointed out, we were watching a fake TV show about a fake TV show on a real TV show.
I can't believe the ending of this ahs season is a fake tv show about a fake tv show, based off of the first season of a fake tv show

On the kinder end of the scale, some viewers thought the grand finale was a bit of a let down.

Some speculated that the writers were on drugs?
