Spoilers? “American Horror Story: Cult” will have a married, same-sex couple as a part of its story, if hints dropped at the Television Critics Association press tour on Wednesday are any indication.
Ahead of the panel, which featured many of the women both in front and behind the camera on the series, reporters got to check out two of the sets. One included a two-story home, in which some family photos and “Mrs. and Mrs.” decor were observed
“There are two women married to each other in that house, but who are they?” Sarah Paulson said, when asked about it. The actress played coy for a bit before saying, “It’s me and Alison,” referring to co-star Alison Pill.
Pill acted shocked over the statement, and Paulson quickly added: “That may or may not be true.”
Another reporter, however, found a photo in the house set that featured the two actresses (I looked at what I thought were all the photos in the house but I didn’t see it, so I can’t confirm that it exists).
Pill will be playing a character named Ivy Mayfair-Richards while Paulson will be playing a character just named as Ally so far. Pill was depicted in a poster released last week brandishing a knife in what looks like a butchery. It was also the official announcement of Pill joining the cast.
Paulson has been a part of the franchise since Season 1. She’s also starred in other series from “AHS” showrunner Ryan Murphy, including the first installments of “American Crime Story” and “Feud.”
Previous hints released by Murphy included a drawing of Paulson’s character and Evan Peters’, named Kai. The photo, released on Instagram, had a caption that read: “Ally and Kai in CULT… a love story for the ages.”
When asked about whether her character and Kai will be in a “love story” — especially if her and Pill are in a “Cult” relationship — she said that all will be revealed over the course of the season.
