American Horror Story: Cult is starting to get deeper into the season, and we have reached the episode where Kai, played by Evan Peters, uses his gifts to make people believe in him in the darkest possible way. The episode in question is called “11/9” which is the day after the election where Kai starts making his moves on various occurring characters within the season. All the show regulars make an appearance in the episode, but it shifts focus to the preceding months where the last episode ended. It’s all about making the crew, finding people that Kai can manipulate into his way of thinking, or at least enough that they’ll be under his control to some extent. Naturally, everything Kai does ends with blood in way, shape, or form. Whether it’s letting himself get beat up by a bunch of men for a video, or helping someone kill a man, Kai Anderson always ends up with blood on his hands. Billy Eichner’s character Harrison plays a prominent role in this episode as he is one of the few that is slowly being recruited by Kai. So too is Meadow, his wife in the show who is played by Leslie Grossman.

The most surprising recruitment would be Adina Porter’s character Beverly Hope, a news reporter who chases hard hitting news ranging from murder to robberies, and the most dangerous places you can possibly be. Beverly is a woman full of rage, yet initially she doesn’t falter to Kai’s manipulation, until an act so gruesome, and so personal she knew that no one else could have done it other than him. To comment on something a tad more shocking, viewers find out that Kai wasn’t the only person playing mind games this episode, but his sister Winter was playing her own games with season regular Ivy, played by Alison Pill. Many have already said that this is Cult’s best episode yet, which is easy to claim since it’s only the fourth episode of the season.

It does beg the question of where everyone goes from here. Are these the people beneath the clown masks? How many more has Kai recruited in his plot to rule the world? Most importantly, how long will Kai be able to keep his charade going until he meets his match, someone he can’t manipulate or control? Based on the preview for the next episode, it’ll be worth the wait.
