The babies were born. The ghosts of Murder House swarmed. Billie Jean Howard tried to warn. As for Vivien Harmon (Connie Britton)? She didn’t survive the storm.

As many of you predicted, Viv didn’t make it through her painstaking and violent childbirth, which naturally (inevitably?) took place inside the house. Dr. Charles Montgomery was on hand for the delivery while his wife Nora (Lily Rabe) waited patiently for the first baby; dead nurses Maria and Gladys assisted with ancient medical gear like ether-soaked cloths and rusty speculums; Constance Langdon (Jessica Lange) acted as concerned spectator and recipient of the second baby; and poor Ben Harmon (Dylan McDermott) finally began to piece the horrors together.

The season finale, Episode 12: “Aferbirth” promises a resolution for all three of the Harmons, but one of the more pressing questions (among so many!) we have is: Who will be the next Murder House victim? You tell us, in our poll below!
