Season 6 of American Horror Story is a quarter of the way through, and Evan Peters still hasn’t made an appearance.
While fans continue to wonder which character Peters will play on American Horror Story: Roanoke, Movie News Guide reports that Peters’ character will have ties to earlier seasons.
Will Peters make an appearance on AHS’s next episode?
Nothing official has been confirmed, but it is possible that Peters will play a character related to Dandy Mott (Finn Wittrock).
Dandy was the serial killer featured in Season 4 of AHS.
Back in September, creator Ryan Murphy teased that Season 6 would link to Freak Show via the Mott family.
“We explained how the Motts began which is funny,” Murphy stated.
AHS alum Frances Conroy is expected to reprise her role as Gloria Mott this season, and it now looks like Peters might join her as a member of Dandy’s crazy family.
It is not clear which family member Peters might play, but it is likely that the origin story will stretch back in time beyond the 1950s, which was the setting of Freak Show.
Will Peters play Dandy’s grandfather or another distant relative?
During the production of Season 6, Bustle reports that Peters shared a photo of himself in flaming red hair, the same color as Conroy’s Gloria. Is this confirmation that Peters will be a Mott this season?
To add more to the theory, some fans are speculating that each chapter of Roanoke is related in some way to a past season of AHS.
In Chapter 1, a lot of similarities were drawn with Murder House — multiple hauntings, ghosts, piggy man — while Chapter 2 featured two homicidal nurses, a callback to Asylum.
In the latest episode, fans watched Lady Gaga debut her devil-worshiping witch alongside Leslie Jordan’s psychic, both homages to the witches in Coven.
If this theory is true, then the coming episode will feature some sort of tie in with Freak Show and might finally reveal Peters’ character.
That being said, Mareeg is reporting that Peters might not be playing a Mott at all.
At the end of Chapter 3, fans watched as the fourth wall was broken when Lee asked the cameramen to stop filming the documentary.
We then got a quick look at the setup and one of the camera man’s voices sounded like Peters.
Is Peters playing a random cameraman this season? Or does this somehow tie back to the very first season of American Horror Story?
Whatever ends up happening with Peters’ character, fans can rest assured that there are plenty of mysteries still ahead.
In fact, Murphy recently revealed that everything will change in Chapter 6.
“You’ll see starting in episode 6, the show has a huge turn and the thing that you think you’re watching is not what you’re watching,” he shared.
Indeed, Murphy previously revealed that all of AHS seasons are tied together in some fashion, confirming many fan theories.
Is it possible that Roanoke will turn into Murder House after Chapter 6?
As fans will recall, the medium featured in Season 1, Billie Dean, talked about the Roanoke Colony and threw around the word “Croatoan” throughout the season.
With that in mind, there is some speculation that Billie is behind the creation of the documentary and that we will return to Murder House at some point.
If that is true, then there’s no telling what character Peters will play this season and when he will finally appear on the show.
Fans can watch more mysteries unfold when new episodes of American Horror Story: Roanoke air Wednesday nights on FX. Check out a preview of Chapter 4 below.
