“American Horror Story” Season 6 told their version of the story in episode 3 on Wednesday night. A psychic character named Cricket (Leslie Jordan) was introduced, and explained that when John left for supplies, he put his wife Thomasin (Kathy Bates) in charge. Times got desperate at the colony as people began to starve, and one man decided to rise up and go against Thomasin, who refused to leave the land that they settled on. Thomasin was left to die in the woods with a spiked cage placed around her neck — her own son (Wes Bentley) was the one that put the lock on it. But Thomasin didn’t die in the woods. A witch (Lady Gaga) found her and released her from her shackles, asking that Thomasin give her her soul in return. Thomasin surrendered her soul to the witch and sought out her old colony for vengeance. She reintroduced herself as “The Butcher,” and killed the men who had wronged her.
Cricket revealed that the farmhouse Matt (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and Shelby (Sarah Paulson) own is actually the location where the Roanoke Colony resettled. The Butcher protects the land, killing anyone who tries to take it from her. Follow “American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare” on Facebook.
