- In Murder House: We don't find out Constance (Lange) is Tate's (Peters) mom until the end of the season, but we do know Tate is pretty messed up, and his mother is to blame. What's more, the original lady of the house spends most of her time weeping over her dead child, and everyone fights over the Harmon baby once it's born.
- In Asylum: Once we learn Dr. Thredson (Quinto) is Bloody Face, we also watch as he tries to make Lana (Paulson), his latest victim, into a bizzare mother figure. And let's just not talk about the adult breastfeeding his son (McDermott) later participates in.
- In Coven: After Joan (Patti LuPone) and her son, Luke (Alexander Dreymon), move in next door to the coven, we quickly learn about their disturbing and hyperreligious relationship, which involves — brace yourself — bleach enemas. Also worth mentioning is the consistently tense relationship between Fiona and Cordelia.
