The American Horror Stories Episode 3 Detail That Had Fans' Eyebrows Raised

Taking the concept of "American Horror Story" and breaking it into bite-sized pieces, the anthology series' spin-off will revisit old storylines and introduce new ones. While the first two episodes took place in the Murder House, the third episode of "American Horror Stories" took a step in a new direction.

"Drive In" follows a sexually frustrated high school couple, Kelley (Madison Bailey) and Chad (Rhenzy Feliz), as they spend their six-month anniversary at the movies. However, their relationship woes quickly become the least of their problems as the infamous horror film transforms their fellow moviegoers into violent monsters.

Fans often come together on the show's subreddit to discuss episodes and ask questions. One user, u/picklesarelife1, was curious about a minor detail at the very end of the episode. Other fans chimed in to agree or attempt to answer the question.

So, what detail from "Drive In" had fans raising their eyebrows?

Netflix and kill

The Redditor asked why the cursed "Rabbit Rabbit" film was added to Netflix while the show is airing exclusively on Hulu. "Weird that Hulu was okay with that?" they asked. "If it were Hulu maybe it would have felt too much like an ad?"

"I just assumed it was a 'haha Netflix will buy anything' joke," said u/_WYKProjectAlpha_. Some users said they hadn't even caught the detail, though others pointed out that "American Horror Story" is "contracted through Netflix and Hulu" so it wasn't all that weird. Had it been streaming on Quibi, though...

"I was thinking the same thing, but Netflix is worldwide and Hulu is just in the US, so Netflix makes more sense both in-universe... and from a real-world perspective," said u/dsioaghioshdgioh. Another user echoed this point, calling the streaming service "ubiquitous."

The OP later added that they think it would've been more interesting to show "Rabbit Rabbit" on Hulu "because it would be what we all just watched it on" to add one final scare. However, another user said, "The idea of Netflix approving themselves being depicted as an indirect means of basically destroying the world is kind of funny."
