Back in present day, Trevor says he wants out of their marriage. His confession quickly turns into an argument, which turns into a make-out session that is interrupted by Margaret’s assistant, Courtney.
Courtney explains that there’s been a major break in Brooke’s case: She lost her most recent appeal, which means she’s headed for execution.
To top it off, Margaret learns about the new murders at Camp Redwood and sees it as an opportunity to capitalize. So, she holds a press conference and reveals that she’s reopening the camp…again.
In Alaska, Mr. Jingles is working at a VHS store. He has a wife and new baby, who are semi-aware of his past. Although he says he’s “over” Camp Redwood, it’s clear there’s some interest in Margaret’s latest mission.
After work, Mr Jingles returns home only to find his wife murdered in bed. Luckily, the baby is unharmed, but there's a note that says, “Satan will have his vengeance.”
The message is written on the back of a flier for the reopening of Camp Redwood. So, Mr. Jingles leaves the baby with his sister-in-law and ventures back to where it all began.
In prison, Brooke is being escorted to her execution when she spots The Night Stalker, who is a fellow prisoner. After trying (and failing) to get Brooke to commit to Satan, The Night Stalker returns to his cell and begins a séance. And it works.
In the execution room, the guard asks if Brooke has any last words. She looks directly at the two-way mirror and says, “I know you’re there, Margaret.” Right before receiving the lethal injection, Brooke adds that Margaret will “burn” for letting an innocent person die.
Later on, Brooke is lying on a table when she suddenly wakes up. When the “medical examiner” takes off her gear, Brooke discovers that it’s Nurse Rita (Angelica Ross).
“Welcome back to the land of the living,” Rita says.
So, is Brooke alive? Or is she now a living ghost, like the rest of the counselors? Guess we’ll have to wait until American Horror Story: 1984 returns to FX next Wednesday, October 30, at 10 p.m.
