Just a few days after it was revealed Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton would be appearing in American Horror Story: Apocalypse, the Harmons are posing for Ryan Murphy on social media. The AHS creator shared a photo of the two, who are seen inside the iconic Murder House from Season 1:
Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton look great, despite the fact that their characters were far from the best situation at the end of American Horror Story: Murder House. We're still unsure of what roles the Harmons will play in Season 8, and whether they'll be in flashbacks as their living selves, in the present as their ghost selves, or some mixture of both. We do know, however, that Vivien and Tate's antichrist son Michael will be much older in the new episodes, which could mean we'll be seeing quite a bit of the ghost Harmons.
We also know that American Horror Story: Apocalypse is a crossover season between Coven and Murder House, and that Coven's witches will be featured in the season as well. Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton's picture is similar to Ryan Murphy's previous photo of the reunited Coven cast, which of course included the legendary Stevie Nicks. Much like the Harmons, many of the witches didn't fare too well in their season, so we're excited to see how Murphy brings everyone together for what should be an exciting season.
The fact that the Harmon family is in the Murder House in Ryan Murphy's photo isn't that surprising, considering the house became their "forever home," when they died. This might mean American Horror Story: Apocalypse characters will have to visit the Murder House for them to be involved with some of the other cast. It's also been hinted that Halloween will play into American Horror Story: Apocalypse in some way. Season 1 confirmed the holiday is the one day the dead can walk among the living, so perhaps that has a part to play in the upcoming season as well?
If something like that does happen, it would be great to see Vivien reconnect with her evil son Michael. We're not exactly sure how Ben is going to feel about the return of his wife and Tate's antichrist love-child, but perhaps the Harmons have managed to work through their various issues and have emerged with a marriage stronger in death than it was in life?
