“American Horror Story: Roanoke” ends its season on Wednesday November 16, and judging from the trailer for the finale, titled “Chapter 10,” the horror anthology’s most unpredictable and entertaining season to date appears to be throwing yet another curve ball at viewers. Watch FX’s preview trailer above.
With Lee (Adina Porter) being the last survivor of the “Return to Roanoke” series following the death of Audrey (Sarah Paulson), it appears that we will finally leave Roanoke Island, and we see what appears to be Lee going on trial, a logical result after footage showing Lee confessing to murdering her ex-husband, as well as her own murderous rampage, is released. Will Lee face justice for her actions? And more importantly, what further acting brilliance will we see from Porter, whose performance has been one of the highlights of the season?
But perhaps the most unexpected reveal in the trailer is Lee sitting down for an interview with none other than Lana Winters, the victimized journalist portrayed by Paulson in “American Horror Story: Asylum.” This marks Paulson’s third character of the season, as she played not only the British-born actress Audrey, but also Shelby Miller in the reenactment scenes of “My Roanoke Nightmare” that comprised the season’s first five episodes. Paulson’s reappearance as a beloved character can only help her chances during the upcoming awards season.
For a season that has been as unpredictable as this one has, next week’s finale, written by series creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, could go in any number of directions. Is Lee still possessed by the spirit of the Butcher? Who has assembled all of the found footage that comprised “Return to Roanoke”? And we still have yet to see Matt Bomer, who had been confirmed as a cast member but has yet to appear.
