Well, at least this week's episode has put to bed the possibility that Ben and Constance were also dead--as we saw them exist outside of the Murder House property. I'm still ticked off about Rubberman though. I was hoping this episode would have shown another murder that involved Rubberman from decades before Tate even existed. The 1984 murder of Stan and Marie by Rubberman is REALLY annoying me. Anyone figure that out yet?
Ok, here is an updated timeline.....
early 1920's-House was constructed
1922-Original home owners (Nora, 'Doc to stars', and their child--and their 2 servants) occupy the house
1922-1926 a dozen or so abortions take place and at some point the child is murdered. The parents have snapped and the Doc creates the 'Infantata' in the basement by trying to save the dead child with parts from other animals. (yuck)
1926-Nora kills Charles and herself via murder/suicide--leaving wounded 'Infantata' alone in the house
1947-Black Dahlia ODs during a 'procedure' that Dr. Curran is performing. So Dr. Montgomery appears and helps with the clean up.
1950s-Lorraine Baxter dies (wife of William Baxter--and possible other woman?)
1968-Maria and Gladys (nurse) are murdered by Franklin
1970s-Alex murders sis and ??
1978-Twins Bryan and Troy murdered/eaten by Infantata
1983-Constance kills her hubby and Moira
1984-Stan and Marie are killed by Rubberman (but obviously not Rubberman Tate)
1994-Tate is killed by SWAT team after shooting up Westfield High. (While police are in Murder House, I think one of them gets wind of the other child in the attic and investigates. That, in turn leads to the next murder...)
1994-Larry kills Beau at Constance's request
mid-late 1990's-Larry kills wife and 2 daughters in fire?? or was this just another one of Larry's lies? Perhaps Lorraine killed herself and their 2 daughters?
October 2010-RubbermanTate kills Chad and Patrick
Fall 2011-Home invaders killed--only 2 die in Murder House
October(ish) 2011-Larry kills Hayden
November 2011-Violet ODs
November(ish) 2011-Travis is murdered by ghost Hayden
On another note, Ryan Murphy, et al should have taken a wee bit more time to cast the infamous BD..............or perhaps Mia Kirshner was just a little too pricey for them? Either way, it's a shame. With all of the other characters on the show so wonderfully cast with actors of such enormous talent, Mena Suvari was--to say it nicely--less than underwhelming.
....and down right disappointing.
