Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Lana Winters imagines receiving an award for her expose while in line for her medication, her mic pack is visible as she steps up to accept it. It is not visible in the high angle long shot before she gives her speech. (00:17:15)Foster
Factual error: All the survivors save Ms Venables and Mead die from eating apples injected with snake venom. The show is confusing venom with poison. Venom must be injected into the bloodstream to be dangerous. Eating venom is harmless to humans. Unless all of the survivors had stomach ulcers, none of them should have shown any ill effects, nor should they have died.Allan Hall
Deliberate mistake: After Elsa kicks Bette and Dot off the stage, Elsa looks at the sheet of music on the stand and you see the name of the song 'Criminal' and it also states it's by Fiona Apple which is true, but this season is set in 1952, and Criminal wasn't released until 1996.Trystan Abbott
Plot hole: It's been established that if you die on the property, you remain as a ghost for all of eternity. However, in Season 8, Moira's bones are retrieved and buried in a cemetery so that her ghost can escape and join her mother. However not all the ghost's bones are buried on the property, we know for sure that the Black Dahlia was not buried on the property and it's not likely Tate, Vivian, Ben or some of the others are buried on the property as well so they should not be tied to the house.ctown28
Factual error: During the Bette and Dot surgery dream, we see the bone saw machine brought in and it says "Easymatic 300." In actuality, the machine is the power source for an X-Ray machine and wasn't produced until the early 1980s, while the season takes place in the early 1950s.Matdan97
Character mistake: At the table when Laveau admits she was the one who hired Hank as a witch hunter, Fiona tells Cordelia "You're not just blind, you're wilfully blind" and backhands her on the right side of her face, knocking her to the floor. On the floor, Cordelia is holding the left side of her face.
Trivia: They pay homage to the original 1932 movie Freaks. In Freaks, Cleopatra gets mutilated and turned into a tarred and feathered bird for visitors to gawk at in terror. Hercules gets viciously attacked under the carnival vehicle. In this episode, Stanley gets cornered by all the freaks under the carnival vehicle and gets viciously attacked and mutilated to resemble Meep (a feathered freak who was killed by the cops in an earlier episode).Tricia Webster
