These Shots From Set May Confirm The Theme Of Mysterious ‘American Horror Story’ Season 6

Just last week, I was speculating about “American Horror Story” and the shroud of mystery surrounding season 6’s theme, characters, plot — well, pretty much everything. Today, TMZ shared a hot scoop with some photos from the set where AHS happens to be shooting.

For those of you who don’t remember much of history class, the Croatoan were a small group of Native Americans living in North Carolina. It was also part of a very old, very strange disappearance. From Wikipedia:

It is possible that some of the survivors of the Lost Colony of Roanoke may have joined the Croatan. Governor White finally reached Roanoke Island on August 18, 1590, three years after he had last seen them in Virginia, but he found his colony had been long deserted. The buildings had collapsed and “the houses [were] taken down”. The few clues about the colonists’ whereabouts included the letters “CROATOAN” carved into a tree. Croatoan was the name of a nearby island (likely modern-day Hatteras Island) and a local tribe of Native Americans. Roanoke Island was not originally the planned location for the colony and the idea of moving elsewhere had been discussed. Before the Governor’s departure, he and the colonists had agreed that a message would be carved into a tree if they had moved and would include an image of a Maltese Cross if the decision was made by force. White found no such cross and was hopeful that his family was still alive.

Now here’s where it gets interesting. In season 1 (Murder House,) medium Billie Dean tells Violet this exact story to help her banish some not-so-friendly ghosts from the house. In fact, the word “Croatoan” was crucial to the ritual, even though (SPOILER ALERT) it didn’t work.

Does this mean we’ll finally see just what happened to the Roanoke Colony? Will there be some sort of tie to Murder House, Billie Dean (who we just saw again last season,) or Violet? Is the entire theme just MYSTERY? WHAT IS THE THEME, RYAN MURPHY?!

We also found a possible connection to cults and Charles Manson in a still from the teasers:

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?! Anyway. Here are the high-quality teasers released by AHS for your viewing pleasure. We may really be waiting until September to get answers, but at least it’s fun to follow the clues while we can.
