Added DiffLines:

* FanNickname:
** The season itself has "Coven 2."
** The woman that [[spoiler: the Mead android]] is based off of is commonly referred to as "Devil Mama," as [[spoiler:it's unclear if "Miriam Mead" is her name, too, or just the android's. (She is referred to as "Ms. Mead" by the butcher in "Traitor", so it seems that it is her real name.)]]
** “American Horror Story: Infinity War”. Even Creator/RyanMurphy himself is in on it.
** The season now has the additional nickname of “American Horror Story: Days of Future Past” after [[spoiler: the final episode]].

Added DiffLines:

* StarMakingRole: Cody Fern as Michael Langdon.


* ApprovalOfGod: Creator/RyanMurphy wholeheartedly approves of fans comparing this season to ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'', due to the large ensemble cast, being a crossover and having world-ending stakes. Became full-blown AscendedFanon when Murphy used the caption of “AHS: Infinity War” [[https://www.instagram.com/p/Bob-BshBEEj/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=o8ys1mdo1ur2 on his instagram for a post showing off the cast]].
* CastingGag: In ''Murder House'', Evan Peters's character Tate Langdon was the Rubber Man, who raped Vivien when she thought he was Ben. This season, Evan Peters's character Mr. Gallant is the one who has sex with the Rubber Man, and thinks he's someone he might not be (in this case, Gallant believes him to be Michael Langdon).
** The character of Jeff, played by Evan Peters, mentions to Michael that he sleeps with Ryan Reynolds in "Sojourn." Reynolds is well-known for playing Wade Wilson/Deadpool in ''Film/Deadpool2016'' and ''Film/Deadpool2'', the latter of which Peters has a cameo in as Peter Maximoff/Quicksilver.
* DawsonCasting: 31-year-old Evan Peters and 24-year-old Taissa Farmiga reprise their roles as ageless teenage ghosts of the Murder House. YMMV on how much (or ''[[OlderThanTheyLook if]]'') either of them has aged since then.

* EnforcedMethodActing: [[https://www.instagram.com/p/Bozk4ntlAJd/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=1qj8ihooskg0j According to some who worked on “Boy Wonder”]], the actors reactions to Stevie Nicks’s singing are genuine.
