It is not unusual for American Horror Story seasons to connect in some way. As an illustration, American Horror Story: Lodge briefly contains Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) from American Horror Story: Coven, whereas American Horror Story: Asylum’s Lana Winters (Sarah Paulson) comes again for The Lana Winters Particular in American Horror Story: Roanoke. This additionally goes for American Horror Story: 1984, which options Richard Ramirez, a.okay.a. the Night time Stalker, and this actual life killer has a short look in Lodge. Nonetheless, whereas he is formally a recurring character, his look in 1984 creates a plot gap for Lodge.
Ramirez’s first look in AHS is with Lodge in “Satan’s Night time.” Portrayed by Anthony Ruivivar, Lodge’s Ramirez is a visitor to James Patrick March’s (Evan Peters) dinner for the ghosts of useless killers. This dinner contains the likes of actual life murderers Aileen Wuornos, Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, the Zodiac Killer and the Night time Stalker. Whereas Ramirez doesn’t play a significant function in Lodge, he continues AHS‘ lengthy standing custom of incorporating actual killers into its narratives, whether or not that is by actually together with them into an episode or basing an unique character — like March — on them.
The foundations for the ghosts in AHS are that they can’t depart the place they’ve died except it’s Halloween, so it is comprehensible that the one method to deliver again Ramirez can be with a prequel. 1984 takes place earlier than most of the occasions in AHS, and its ’80s setting makes it good for the Night time Stalker, a serial killer whose killing spree started on this 12 months.
In contrast to in Lodge, Ramirez is portrayed by Zach Villa in 1984, and he has a considerably bigger function. Impressed by Montana (Billie Lourd) to kill Brooke Thompson (Emma Roberts), Ramirez follows the core solid to Camp Redwood, the place he meets Mr. Jiggles (John Carroll Lynch), who he resurrects with the assistance of the Satan. Due to this, Jiggles is indebted to them, accompanying Ramirez on his homicide spree till he can now not take it.
Whereas the occasions at Redwood are fictionalized, how Jiggles turns Ramirez in is oddly correct. In fact, many liberties are nonetheless taken — like Jiggles tipping off two girls about who Ramirez is; nevertheless, the civilians pursuing him until authorities arrive is true. This then results in his imprisonment, each in AHS and actual life.
Up thus far, what occurs to Ramirez units him as much as attend Satan’s Night time, as he’s supposed to die in prison in 2013, and Lodge aired between 2015 and 2016. Nonetheless, that is the place 1984 makes a significant change, with Ramirez calling upon the Satan to assist him escape jail in 1989. He then returns to Redwood, however as a substitute of popping out on high, the useless counselors kill him on the camp.
Nonetheless, not like others who’ve died in Camp Redwood, Ramirez just isn’t a ghost like he’s in Lodge. As a substitute, his bodily physique might be resurrected once more by the Satan. There’s the chance that later down the road Ramirez might correctly die, and his spirit might then make his method to the Lodge Cortez on Halloween, however which means sooner or later Ramirez falls out of favor with the Satan. It additionally implies that he would’ve needed to escape the advisors of Camp Redwood, who’ve been watching his corpse 24/7, with one counselor all the time current to kill him when he comes again to life.
This continues all over 2019, with the Satan nonetheless resurrecting Ramirez in spite of everything these years. Whereas he virtually breaks freed from the advisors, they finally kill him as soon as extra, once more condemning Ramirez to this cycle. Which means Ramirez by no means turns into a ghost; due to this fact, he by no means attends Satan’s Night time. Plus, even when he might attend March’s dinner in his bodily physique, he should have escaped the advisors, however since he is been trapped right here for the whole lot of the twenty first century, he would’ve missed the occasions of Lodge.
Lodge’s iteration of Ramirez doesn’t play a significant function within the season, so this plot gap would not deeply have an effect on the storyline. Plus, AHS is an anthology, with practically each season standing by itself. When the seasons join, it is a good reward for very long time followers, however that does not imply these references have to be good because the tales are sometimes not depending on the overarching continuity.
Whereas this plot gap just isn’t deeply impactful, it’s noticeable, particularly for these accustomed to the Night time Stalker. In fact, liberties have been taken earlier than his arrest in AHS for Ramirez, however 1984 rewrites his whole life after his imprisonment. Ramirez escaping and being condemned to the camp has no connection to actuality, and it calls into query how his ghost ended up in Lodge within the first place.
