The fourth episode finally confirmed theories that Dandy Mott’s (Finn Wittrock) ancestors play a part this season, yet Peters still didn’t make an appearance. Will that change in Chapter 5?
TV Guide is reporting that Peters will likely play the part of Edward Philippe Mott in a future episode.
In the last installment, Dr. Elias Cunningham (Denis O’Hare) revealed that Edward built the haunted farmhouse back in 1792.
The episode went into great detail about the origins of the farmhouse, and Edward was the only Mott ancestor who didn’t make an appearance.
Edward clearly plays an important part this season, so it makes sense that Peters will show up as Edward at some point down the road.
Of course, there are other possible roles Peters might play, including one that links to Lady Gaga’s character.
More information continues to leak about Lady Gaga’s character, the Wood Witch.
We know that the Wood Witch is trying to sleep with Matt (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and she probably has good reasons for it.
Apart from having sex, the witch might be trying to have a baby with Matt.
The spirits that haunt the property can kill during the Dying Grass Moon and it is possible that they can create life during this time as well.
This theory opens up the possibility that Gaga’s character seduced Edward, who had a baby boy that is now grown up.
This Mott descendant could be played by Peters. After all, the actor leaked a photo of himself with red hair prior to the Season 6 premiere.
Red hair runs in both the Mott and the Wood Witch’s blood lines.
To complicate things, the season kicked off with Shelby’s (Sarah Paulson) miscarriage and it seems logical that the show will re-visit the pregnancy theme once more.
Indeed, Chapter 3 featured Matt and Lee (Angela Bassett) stumbling upon two red-headed boys on the farm. Were these feral children part of the Wood Witch’s family?
Apart from the Wood Witch theory, Ecumenical News reports that Peters might appear as the Pigman.
The Pigman has roots that date back to Season 1 of American Horror Story.
As fans will recall, Eric Stonestreet feared Pigman in Murder House.
This season, Pigman has made several appearances though we still don’t know who is behind the scary mask.
Is Peters the man behind the mask?
Peters recently teased fans with a photo of a pig head on Instagram. This is certainly not confirmation that he plays the character, but it does mean that it is a possibility.
According to Romper, some fans have even compared Peters’ shoulder profile to Pigman’s, and it does have a striking resemblance.
In the trailer for Chapter 5, the Pigman makes several different and frightening appearances.
With the character clearly taking on a larger role as the season progresses, it is possible that Peters is once again playing a masked character on American Horror Story.
If Peters is the Pigman, there’s no telling when he will make a proper appearance this season.
Sportsrageous claims that if American Horror Story continues its current pattern of tying back to previous seasons, then Peters might make an epic appearance in Chapter 6.
So far, all of the episodes have linked back to former seasons, and Chapter 6 is expected to feature a major twist.
Movie Fone reports that co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk opened up about how the show will take a major turn that fans will never see coming.
“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,” Murphy revealed.
Falchuk echoed his co-creators comments and added that “no matter what you think it is, it’s not that. Episode 6 comes and you’re like, ‘Wait! What happened?'”
AHS: Roanoke can be split into three different segments: episodes 1-5, 6-9, and then the finale, Falchuk also shared.
Whether or not that means Peters will finally make an appearance is yet to be seen.
American Horror Story: Roanoke airs Wednesday nights on FX, check out a preview for Chapter 5 below.
