At this point, every single surviving character could turn out to be the killer. However, until the plot proves otherwise, there is one particular person on the show who has already raised the eyebrows of many fans. The mere fact that BDSM-oriented art dealer Sam is played by American Horror Story veteran Zachary Quinto places him fairly high on the list of potential big daddies, likely due to a combination of the character’s shadyness and Quinto’s own past ” AHS”. work as Bloody Face.
“Okay, big daddy’s gotta be right, Zachary Quinto.” @akimaudrey theorized. “Zachary and Big Daddy Hmm.” @3mmaroberts added their capital letters to the topic. users like @HARSTIN I also made the connection.
There are other perspectives on the killer’s identity, although they don’t exactly exonerate Quinto’s character. “So, Sylar, um, Zachary kidnapped the reporter. Remember that he took measurements on the floor. And now Zach has this new cage in the basement. Big Daddy Dom is a ghost and has to work with him.” @NyxGreenfyre wrote her supernatural rendition of Big Daddy and Sam. In the meantime, @Itzakandii compared Big Daddy to the classic “AHS” legacy character Rubber Man, implying there may be far more at play than a mere human killer.
Is Quintos Sam the main villain of the season, or a diversion for a threat far more dangerous than a single person? AHS: NYC will no doubt provide an answer to these mysteries.
