It’s been a tough couple of weeks you guys, but we finally made it through the wilderness. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the four week Evan Peters-less drought is over.
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. In episode five of American Horror Story: Roanoke, Evan Peters FINALLY made his first on screen appearance this side of Christmas and it was like our chakras aligned and our auras were cleansed.
Every single one of your theories were wrong, by the way. He wasn't the pig man. He wasn't the producer. Turns out that he was playing Hamilton reject Edward Phillip Mott, a relative of the Mott family who were last seen on Freak Show. (Yep, Evan Peters is "related" to Finn Wittrock aka DANDY! *screams*)

But that wasn't all we were blessed with in this glorious glorious episode. It was revealed that Evan's character built the Murder House 2.0 back in the 1700s to escape with his GAY lover.
Yes, Ryan Murphy did that. And the internet absolutely EXPLODED.
EVAN PETERS IS GAY THIS SEASON CAN I GET AN AMEN?— anal (@vyctordelrey) October 13, 2016
But what Ryan Murphy gives, he takeths away TWICE as much. Because TEN MINUTES after introducing Evan's character was roasted, literally, by The Butcher and he kicked the bucket.
He returns as a ghost later in the episode to help Matt and Shelby escape The Butcher but that's not THE POINT OK?!
So what do we do now? This whole plot line is meant to be a "re-enactment", right? So does that mean Evan will be back in human form at some point this season? What does this mean in regards to the PLOT TWIST that is coming our way in episode six? Will I ever be able to sleep again?
What the frickity frack does this all mean?!
