The AHS: Red Tide Easter Egg You Missed Early On In Asylum

For over 100 episodes (per IMDb), "American Horror Story" has been frightening TV viewers in spooky settings varying from a haunted LA hotel to an '80s summer camp inspired by seminal slashers like "Friday the 13th." Ryan Murphy's anthology series brings some of the most shocking villains to the small screen, including serial killer Bloody Face and the simultaneously terrifying and tragic Twisty the Clown. The ghastly Addiction Demon from "American Horror Story: Hotel" still disturbs the thoughts of fans over five years after its premiere.

While each season is a self-contained story, every blood-curdling tale told on "American Horror Story" takes place in the same universe. In fact, "American Horror Story: Apocalypse" is a crossover that features characters and important plot points from two previous seasons, "Murder House" and "Coven," but most of that other seasons just contain references to one another. 

For example, the second season, "Asylum," and Season 10, Part 1, "Red Tide," do not have a lot in common. One centers on the patients and staff of Briarcliff Manor in the 1960s, and the other is about a present-day beach town overrun by bloodthirsty creatures. Despite that, both "Asylum" and "Red Tide" are set in the same state, which leads to an Easter egg so subtle many may have missed it.

Kit and Alma Walker got married in Provincetown

On Reddit, the eagle-eyed u/prof_sandwich_maker spotted an Easter egg while rewatching "American Horror Story: Asylum." Around the beginning of the first episode, Kit Walker (Evan Peters) returns home from work. After he greets his wife Alma (Britne Oldford) with a kiss, he tells her he wants to let their families know they went to Provincetown to get married.

Provincetown should sound familiar to fans who are still watching "AHS" almost a decade after "Asylum" first aired. In "Red Tide," floundering screenwriter Harry Gardner (Finn Wittrock) travels to Provincetown, Massachusetts, with his wife Doris (Lily Rabe) and violinist daughter Alma (Ryan Kiera Armstrong). Harry goes to the coastal town to find his muse, and it's the same place where Kit and Alma exchange vows over 50 years earlier. This connection between Season 2 and Season 10 of "American Horror Story" is not totally surprising, considering that the titular "Asylum" is located in Massachusetts.

But there is more than one intriguing link between "Asylum" and "Red Tide." Reddit user u/keithforpresident also highlighted that both seasons feature characters named Alma and pondered whether they share a familial bond. Redditor u/lindseyeileen argued it is feasible for Alma Walker to be the great-great-grandmother of the violin-playing wunderkind, but as of yet, neither Ryan Murphy nor anyone else involved with "AHS" has officially confirmed if the two Almas are related or not.
