An Emphasis on Youth and Vanity
- In Murder House: In season one, Constance (Lange) spends a great deal of her alone time fretting about growing old and taking a much younger lover to soothe her insecurities.
- In Asylum: Not only does Sister Jude (Lange) wear lingerie and perfume under her nun garb, it's worth noting that Shelley (Chloë Sevigny), the most sexually charged character of the season, ends up horribly deformed.
- In Coven: The entire season of Coven hinges on the next Supreme, causing Fiona's (Lange) attempt to slay all the young witches to stay young and beautiful. Not to mention the obsession with immortality shared by Fiona, Marie Laveau (Bassett), and Delphine LaLaurie (Kathy Bates). Oh, and can we talk about how Delphine paints her face with blood to keep it looking fresh and youthful?
