During an interview with Vulture, the inerviewer asked about the hood being a possible throwback to the third season of AHS: “But is she actually going to see our old friend Cordelia from AHS: Coven?”
“None of those things happened and obviously they were missed opportunities. I see that clearly now,” Sarah said, also citing that her other AHS character Lana Winters could have come back but didn’t. “I love that there’s a mystery to it and that you walk away from this season going, ‘Where the hell is she going?’ I think that’s great and that’s a good question to have. I think it looks an awful lot like the robes Bebe wore, doesn’t it?”
Bebe is the character from Cult played by Frances Conroy, and is another cult leader.
