American Horror Story: Murder House “Pilot” Introduction Recap

Meet the Harmons: Happiest family in the world.

pd115hd

They buy a new house.

pd521s

The real estate agent warns them about the previous owners’ deaths.

pd175spd232pd231pd242h

Yup. Violet’s into this stuff.

They also have a cute dog.

pd137

We get the impression that Ben Harmon’s in need of some serious lovin’.

pd618

But Vivien gives him the cold shoulder.

pd630

Their daughter Violet starts school and everything seems great.

pd634df

She quickly makes some friends.

pd641

Back at home Vivien meets Addy, who’s simply the best. Her hobbies include telling people they’ll die in the house.

pd657

Her mother Constance shows up and she’s just fabulous.

pd673pd675

Ben starts seeing his patients at the house. Tate’s the first one we meet.

pd764

He has some strong opinions about life.

pd789

Not to mention interesting fantasies.

pd776

Later he meets Violet, who’s self-harming.

pd823 pd824

At night, we see Ben sleepwalking, he’s suddenly developed an interest in fire.

pd849

The next day Moira shows up for work.

pd869pd880

While she seems like a nice, somewhat creepy old lady to Vivien, Ben sees a whole different side of her.

pd902pd904

Oh, Ben.

pd1087 pd1089

What’s going on? We just don’t know. It’s bananas.  *evil laughter*

Later Tate has another session with Ben while Violet’s eavesdropping.

pd1188pd1189d

So they start spending time together.

pd994pd1216

Yes, Tate is kind of weird but cute in his own way but Ben doesn’t really approve of this friendship, upsetting both Tate and Violet.

Of course later he’s busy with his own problems such as being seduced by the old/young maid Moira.

pd1281pd1291pd1297 pd1314pd1309

Sweet. Explain that, Ben.

He’s extremely frustrated so he tries again with Vivien.

pd1347pd1345

Her exasperated face is the best.

pd1391

But Ben loses it and they have a big fight because he cheated on her.

pd1417pd1424

That’s it. That’s Ben’s character in one line.

pd1381

After their fight they get it on and suddenly everything’s fine.

Later Violet comes with blood on her face.

pd1445

That night Vivien has another moment of passion/trauma with a man who she thinks is Ben.

pd1548 pd1552

And Tate convinces Violet to scare her bully.

pd1574

Fun fun.

But Violet freaks out when she sees a monster baby.

pd1600

Tate’s pretty cool about it.

pd1595

Later the burned face man who’s been stalking Ben tells him his story.

pd1615pd1609pd1610

He’s burned the house and himself. Amazing.

Later Vivien gives Ben some good news. She’s pregnant.

pd1624pd1627

Oh boi, indeed.

What will the Harmons do now? What’s Tate’s deal? Will Violet find love in a hopeless place? What about the old/young maid?
