Did American Horror Story Predict Charles Manson’s Death?

This headline is a great example of Betteridge’s Law of Headlines.

Betteridge’s Law states that if a headline ends in a question mark, the answer is “no”. Did you click on this article because you were curious about the answer to that question? HA! You’ve been Betteridged! Over the weekend, cult-leader, psychopath and Beatles fan Charles Manson died at the age of 83.

Obviously, American Horror Story didn’t predict the death of Charles Manson. But Manson was a character in this season which just ended last week. The antagonist, Kai Anderson, imagines or hallucinates that he is being visited and counseled by the ghost of Charles Manson. This is a nifty trick, as Charlie points out, because he ISN’T DEAD YET!

In the above clip, Manson tells Kai that he’s still alive, “kickin’ it in Corcoran State Prison”.

The “it” in “kickin’ it” turns out to be “the bucket”. Good riddance, Charlie.
