American Horror Story: 1984 premiered and, as usual, brought plenty of twists, turns, and questions for the season. Here are the five biggest questions.
After a number of teasers, images, and updates, we finally got the premiere of American Horror Story: 1984. What a premiere it was! This season has already packed a punch when it comes to the traditional horror and scares. Now all eyes are on what’s in store for the rest of the season.
Like every other season, the premiere has delivered a number of questions for just the next episode. It can be overwhelming with multiple plot points happening, so here are the top five questions after the AHS: 1984 premiere.
5. Who is the Night Stalker?
Someone calling himself the Night Stalker broke into Brooke’s apartment during the episode. That’s the event that makes her join her new friends on the trip to be camp counselors. She hopes to get away from him, but he’s at Camp Redwood at the very end.
Who is this Night Stalker? What does he want? At first, it seemed like he was just after something valuable to steal, but then he started talking about Satan. Is he connected to Apocalypse in some way?
The Night Stalker goes by the name Richard Ramirez. Ramirez is based on a real serial killer and rapist from 1984 to 1985. I’m guessing we haven’t seen the last of this guy and I can’t help but wonder if there will end up being some sort of connection to Hotel later in the season.
4. What’s Margaret’s end game?
Nobody does things for innocent reasons in American Horror Story, and that’s going to be the case in 1984. I bet that Margaret hasn’t just opened the camp purely because she wanted to create happy memories.
She knew that reopening the camp after the 1970 horrors would lead to it being in the paper. Is there any chance that she wanted to alert Mr. Jingles to the news and get him to come back? I mean, he found the perfect way to escape on the night before the grand opening, knowing that there would be plenty of people to kill.
Plus, Margaret’s story of her astral form watching her ear get sliced off seemed too good to be true. There’s something more to this story, but what is it?

3. Who’s after Xavier?
Everyone has some sort of secret when it comes to American Horror Story. Xavier certainly does. During the episode, we watched him check in on his voicemails, where he got a mail from a creepy guy who knows where Xavier is going.
This is also the guy who hit a guy and immediately got anxious about the accident. He immediately got everyone to cover for him. Chances are that it wasn’t because of the accident but because he doesn’t want people to know where he is.
2. Is Mr. Jingles the only threat?
Okay, so we know the answer to this is no. The Night Stalker is out there, waiting to claim one of his victims. However, there’s still something creepy about the place. Mr. Jingles and the Night Stalker can’t be the only threats, right?
This likely goes back to Margaret. I’ve seen Friday the 13th, so know that Jason Voorhees wasn’t the killed in the very first movie. While this series may have connections to The Final Chapter, is there a chance that we’re going to see a connection to the killer twist?
1. Who will be the first to die?
In every horror movie, all but one or two of the main cast die. Who will be the first to go in American Horror Story: 1984? My money is on Montana or maybe Chet. The two seem to have the least secrets and the most reason to be out alone someone to get killed off.
Out of the main characters, my money is on Brooke to survive. She does seem to be the nice girl who remains as virginal as possible throughout the movie.
