(Warning: Major spoilers will follow.) American Horror Story has wrapped up its wild first season with two important ghosts added to its already expansive roll call, but where should it go from here? The Harmon saga seems to have come to a conclusion: Vivien, Ben, and Violet have all found peace together in death, and besides, Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott both signed on for only one season. But should the show continue to chart Constance (Jessica Lange) and her demon-child? Would the last act of the finale really start to seed a redemption arc for Tate (Evan Peters) if it had no plans to follow through on that next season? And do we really want someone new to move into that damn house after the first season briskly burned through so much of its creepy mythology, or should Ryan Murphy and his writers start from scratch with a different cast and a new horror story next time?
