American Horror Story: Cult E04 Recap: 'I'll Clean It Up Myself"

american horror story cult e04 recap

We're back again for Bleeding Cool's weekly recap of American Horror Story: Cult, this time taking a look at the backstory-heavy, question-answering Episode 4: '11/9.'

This week, we take a break in all the forward momentum to look back at how we got here in the first place. We also get answers to some questions we've had since the first episode, and see more of Harrison "Hilton" Wilton (Billy Eichner), Beverly Hope (Adina Porter), and Ivy (Alison Pill). And if you're interested in seeing textbook-level cult indoctrination? Kai (Evan Peters) has you covered there, too…

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 underway…

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.
