Murder House — Nora Montgomery
Lily Rabe first graced American Horror Story as the selfish, grief-stricken socialite Nora Montgomery. Nora and her husband Charles (Matt Ross), a celebrity doctor, are the first inhabitants of Murder House. Charles performs abortions for women, and when one woman's boyfriend finds out, he murders and dismembers the Montgomerys' infant son, Thaddeus. Nora's husband tries to console her by . . . Frankenstein-ing their baby. Eventually, Nora kills Charles and shoots herself in the head, which is why she has memory troubles as a ghost. Later on, she befriends Tate Langdon and takes the Harmons' stillborn baby (only to soon reject it).
