American Horror Story: Cult E07 Recap: ‘I Am Your Legacy’

We’re back again for Bleeding Cool’s weekly recap of American Horror Story: Cult, this time taking a look at the Lena Dunham-showcasing Episode 7: ‘Valerie Solanas Died For Your Sins: Scumbag’

So this week, we’ve got an episode that was a little light on storyline forward momentum but the incredible performances from both Dunham (Valerie Solanas) and Evan Peters (Kai/Andy Warhol) more than made up for it. Having a bit of a breather isn’t always a bad thing, and the episode wasn’t completely devoid of some interesting little happenings. Kai won the election for councilman, and Hope (Adina Porter) isn’t a big fan of the changes she’s seeing in their “shared power” agreement. With Bebe (Frances Conroy) now on the scene, looks like we’re going to have a little “cult vs. cult” action going on…or will we?

So my overview/recap of the episode is waiting patiently for your eyeballs below, along with some Spare Parts that I picked up along the way that I thought you might find interesting. You can also check out the transcript of my live-blog of the episode here or by clicking the link after the video.

But one quick thing before we get our recap under way…

Once again, this is not a formal review — more of a recap/review/stream of consciousness mash-up “monster” all its own — but I will be covering some themes and takeaways involving major and minor plot points from the episode. Just something to keep in mind before watching or re-watching the episode. Definitely not looking to have angry fellow geeks outside my apartment with pitchforks and torches because I slacked off on the spoiler warnings.
