While “American Horror Story” returns to its signature blend of social commentary and gritty horror, it also recruits more than a few fan favorites for Season 11. Patti LuPone in particular lends her legendary singing talent to the communal bathhouse as Kathy as the investigation continues in “Big Daddy.” “ heats up with drinks. Helping out on this case is Henry, played by “AHS” veteran Denis O’Hare, who cleverly omits his name from a journalistic report to avoid becoming the next target. As police continue to neglect the sexual nature of the case, it’s up to the citizens of New York City to solve the mystery.
Last but not least is the long-awaited return of Zachary Quinto, who played the terrifying and disturbing Bloody Face in Season 2. Given his villainous past on the show, it’s hard not to already suspect Quinto as the villainous “Big Daddy.” Also, Quintos Sam is dressed all in black like the merciless butcher, and he’s even suspiciously elusive when asked what happened to the “Big Daddy” fashion model from the past. He quickly says he died, reassuring his friend Theo (Isaac Powell). However, American Horror Story fans seem to have far less confidence in this hasty statement, as a number of Redditors have addressed Quinto’s ability to effectively play creepy characters on the show in this thread.
