American Horror Story: NYC episode 5: The Angel of Death?

American Horror Story: NYC PatAs we get prepared for American Horror Story: NYC episode 5 on FX this Wednesday, why not tackle a big theory that’s out there?

We know that so far this season, the show has steered clear of doing too many references to past seasons; yet, the promo for episode 5 and episode 6 suggests that we could be getting an appearance from the Angel of Death in some shape or form. Is this the same character we saw in American Horror Story: Asylum, voiced by none other than series vet Frances Conroy? There is certainly a case to be made for it.

The biggest reason to bring Conroy back for this, beyond her being a fan favorite, is that this is the perfect sort of Easter egg for this show to execute. Let’s put it like this: Even if you haven’t seen her on the show in the past, you could still understand what is going on in the story. Meanwhile, it’d be a great treat for longtime fans of the franchise. We don’t think that a ton of Easter eggs / references to the past are necessary for a show like this, but they’re appreciated in these small doses. (We frame it this way just because the crossover season Apocalypse at times got a little too unwieldy for its own good.

If there was to be a crossover between NYC and another season, of course it makes some sense it’d be an earlier one. Just remember for a moment that there’s so much nostalgia for Asylum, Coven, and those first few chapters of this anthology. That’s when it was the most popular! The more that we get a chance to see references to some of these seasons, the better for the sake of getting this franchise attention in 2022.
