American Horror Story: Jessica Lange Roles Fan-Ranked; Pepper's Story

We were wondering what Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk's American Horror Story: Double Feature would do to top that they unleashed with"Part 1: Red Tide." And even after only one episode, we have a feeling "Part 2: Death Valley" isn't going to disappoint. Between President Eisenhower (Neal McDonough), Amelia Earhart (Lily Rabe), alien abductions, conspiracy theories, and pregnant men (yup), there was a whole lot to process. Thankfully, FX Networks is giving viewers a chance to take a break from the speculation while staying in the AHS universe.

In the first featurette, the fans rank Jessica Lange's characters from her AHS run:

While in this second featurette, viewers are taken back in time to "Asylum" and 'Freak Show" for a look back at the heartbreaking life of Pepper (Naomi Grossman):

To give viewers a better sense of what they can expect (and to prove once again that AHS has some of the most amazing title credits going and has for ten seasons & a spinoff), FX Networks was kind enough to share a look at how each episode this season will be kicking off (after the cold open, that is). Here's a look at the opening titles/credits sequence for American Horror Story: Double Feature (Part 2: Death Valley):

To help set the right mood for "Part 2: Death Valley," AHS went back in time with a broadcast from KHS News from the West, where "baby fever," flying objects, and radiation are the hot topics of the day. With anchor Raymond Burrows reporting, we have the U.S. explaining away flying objects near the California/Nevada border, questions about the government retooling radar tech into something called a "microwave oven." After a commercial for door locks, the returning report covered the sudden "boom" in recent fertility rates followed by a commercial for Theta TVs and a weather report about those "sand storms." But make sure to listen in-between for the real truth… Here's a look at that disturbing, clue-filled "blast from the past" courtesy of KHS News from the West:

With one experiment ended (for now?) and a new one about to begin, here's a look at American Horror Story: Double Feature (Part 2: Death Valley):

Here's a look back at the trailer for American Horror Story: Double Feature: "Part 1: Red Tide" & "Part 2: Death Valley" that contained a number of first-looks from both parts of the season (including scenes from "Part 2: Death Valley" that aren't in the clip above):

What follows are nine very cool mini-recaps, one for each of the popular series' seasons. Even with having watched all nine seasons at least once before, the following clips were a nice "refresher course" on the show's origins (and got us wanting to binge "Apocalypse"). So from "Murder House" to "1984," here's a look back at nine seasons and ten years of American Horror Story:
