American Horror Story: Roanoke's Midseason Twist Finally Revealed — Find Out Who's Playing Who & Who's ALREADY DEAD!
While some fans predicted this type of twist at the beginning of the season, we couldn't help but feel satisfied with the narrative curveball of swapping the docuseries format in My Roanoke Nightmare (the first five episodes of the season) for a found footage scarefest a la Paranormal Activity.
So just what new stories, characters, and deaths did the twist add to the season's already complex storyline in Wednesday's episode?
It all started off with
Everything You Need To Know About The Murder Of Gianni Versace To Get You Ready For American Crime Story Season 3!
Ryan Murphy really knows how to pick 'em!
On Tuesday, it was revealed American Crime Story will indeed be returning for a third season, and that it will focus on the senseless and shocking 1997 murder of Gianni Versace.
While the show's first season knocked it out of the park with its exploration of the O.J. Simpson trial, Murphy decided to go in a different direction with the impending second installment by tackling the gross injustices of Hurricane Katrina.
Now it looks like the director will shift gears back into murder with a side of celebrity drama.
Considering Versace's killing took place almost twenty years ago, we've compiled some facts about the case to refresh your memory. Let's just say this murder has all

Ryan Murphy Spills The Tea On Working With The 'Relentlessly Homophobic' WB On His First TV Show! See What He Said!
Ryan Murphy is one of the biggest titans in television right now, and can pretty much get any show made exactly how he envisions it.
But that definitely wasn't the case over a decade ago, when the producer sold his first TV series to The WB (pre CW) and had an extremely "miserable experience"!
Before the days of Glee and American Horror Story, Murphy had pitched his high school dramedy series Popular — about an awkward high school girl forced to live with a popular cheerleader after their parents get engaged — to different networks and "ended up going with The WB."
Though the series became a cult hit after only two seasons from 1999 to 2001, the writer blames constant battles he had with network executives on the show's cancellation.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the 50-year-old said he wasn't a fan of working with the "relentlessly homophobic" executives who suggested he make his characters "less gay," confessing:

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Glee creator Ryan Murphy reflected on the show's rollercoaster six seasons, including Cory Monteith's untimely death from a drug overdose in July of 2013.

Unfortunately, the star couldn't overcome his demons in the end.
Recalling the last time he saw Cory, Ryan revealed:
