* People have pointed out name parallels to TheHillsHaveEyes and Freak Show, with there being characters named Papa Jupiter (Jupiter, Florida), Mars (Elsa Mars), and Ethel (Ethel Darling). Might be a bit of a stretch, but it almost seems too close to not have some kind of meaning.

[[WMG: Season 6 will be set during the aftermath of the American Civil War]]
And it will feature tall tales of the time being real. A fictionalized Davy Crockett travels the country and encounters such icons as John Henry during his contest with the drilling machine, a young Paul Bunyan when he first meets Babe, and Johnny Appleseed...planting an apple tree. He'll witness Pecos Bill ride the tornado. He'll fight the Red Dwarf of Detroit! And then they are all forced to become an Avengers-style team in order to fight the Devil from Asylum, who is attempting to create an Ant-Christ before Michael in Murder House. But their actions cause reality to warp so everyone remembers their lives differently.

Essentially, they are the same souls who get reincarnated over and over, but without space-time continuity. This means they can overlap, because when they die they are reincarnated at another point in time, and they can even be damned souls for "all of eternity", because the universe will eventually die of heat-death, and whatever forces are keeping them around would disappear. Their incarnations may look similar (explaining how Pepper builds such a strong relationship with Sister Jude or The Countess seeing Tristan as "her type"), but never quite the same. This could even be true for supernatural entities.

[[WMG: Season 6 will be set in a Summer Camp]]
Because a Summer Camp would be classic, with tons of opportunities to reference movies where monsters attack people out in the woods. The returning cast members will be camp counselors who find that the forest and lake within the vicinity of the campgrounds are home to strange monsters that target both them and the children.
* The lake monster will be a shape-shifter with a human form played by Lady Gaga that it uses to lure in the boy campers and...eat them or something. Because...Gaga as a camp counselor would be hard to swallow.
* One of the forest monsters will be a Sasquatch. An unsettlingly silent, intelligent one who abducts the children for a much more elaborate purpose than food.
* Something turns the kids into monsters, like radioactive waste under the camp.

The show is experiencing ContinuityCreep, with season 4 tying into season 2, and we've already been told that season 5 will tie to season 1. That leaves Coven as the sole season to not have any connection to another season, while still having the most unresolved plotlines (read: characters who aren't yet dead). It seems logical they'd want to follow-up.

[[WMG: The final season will deal with the End of the World]]
There are multiple reasons why this seems like the most fitting ending for ''American Horror Story''. For one thing, it would fit with the show's love of {{Shout Out}}s to various genres of horror and fantasy, giving the writers ample opportunity to mock and/or homage the wealth of apocalyptic fiction that Western pop culture has produced in the last century. For another thing, the creators' many hints about [[TheVerse the overarching continuity of the show's various seasons]] seem to be building up to some inevitable climax in the GrandFinale, what with Pepper, Marcy and Sister Mary Eunice showing up in multiple seasons.

Considering we've so far seen the birth of the AntiChrist, the births of multiple children in an alien breeding program, the Devil taking a human host, and the rise of [[TheArchmage an all-powerful sorceress]] with a school full of young witches at her command, it seems like there's now room for at ''least'' three different flavors of Apocalypse in the ''American Horror Story'' universe--or at least room for a high-stakes battle for the fate of the world. And really, once the creators do decide to end the show, a season about the end of human civilization would seem to be the most fitting kind of SerialEscalation imaginable, since it's pretty damn hard to top a full-blown apocalypse.

Not to mention that, with the show's characteristic alternation between modern-day stories and period pieces (with odd-numbered stories taking place in the present, and even-numbered stories in the past), it seems like a season set in the ''future'' would be the perfect way to subvert audience expectations.

So...''American Horror Story: Apocalypse'', anyone?

** This theory isn't really {{Jossed}}, since the theory only states that it will happen "eventually," not for season 5.

This seems long overdue. A haunted hotel just seems too bland by this show's standards. But, a haunted hotel in the wild west? Now, that's a story! Think off all the creatures from native american folklore they could include, or badass historical figures like Wyatt Earp, or Billy the kid, or Calamity Jane. Sam Elliot could guest star as the sheriff or something. Maybe the local bar tender is a HumanoidAbomination, maybe a serial killer is scalping prostitutes, and a Apache tribe is being framed. The possibilities are endless!

The cast comes and goes, so obviously some people get out. However, if redemption got you out, [[spoiler: Jessica Lange]] wouldn't haven't returned for Coven, as she was fully redeemed, and [[spoiler: Dylan McDermott and Zachary Quinto]] would have, since they were both AxCrazy. [[spoiler: Bassett and Bates]] probably WOULD HAVE BEEN free after Coven, except [[spoiler: Papa Legba dragged them back.]]
