American Horror Story: Cult - "Holes"

Beverly is getting in trouble at work for what her boss calls "fake news."  She's focusing on the murders, as well as giving Kai air time in his bid to run for city council.  She ends up getting fired, while threatening to tell everyone about the relationship between Bob and the young murdered reporter.

The underground group, led by Kai, hold their meeting, where Winter reports that the city council race is pretty low on people's priority list.  Kai suggests they kill Bob for firing Beverly.  And who shows up to the meeting but Ivy?!?!  WTF. 

Ally hallucinates that holes are in her skin and bugs are crawling in and out, causing her to aggressively gouge her neck.  She returns to her hot therapist, and it's revealed that they have been struggling financially for some time, and their relationship wasn't doing too well either.

Now Ally only has supervised visits with Ozzy and that's not really going so well either.  The underground group/clowns show up at Bob's house.  Is it just me or are these clowns getting scarier?  Geez. In an very odd turn of events, Bob has a guy hanging from hooks in the attic with a black mask on.  Consensual?  Not?  Guess we'll never know because Kai just goes ahead and stabs dude in the chest.  And Bob's death is not far behind. 

Meanwhile, back in the house that she hates, Ally sees Harrison skulking around his house even though he is supposed to be to missing along with Meadow, right?  Instead of calling someone of authority, Ally just goes over there herself, finding a grave with an injured Meadow inside.  She runs back to her house, and attempts to call 911, but after being told to wait on hold a moment, she uselessly calls Ivy instead.  Meadow comes banging on the window, and reveals to Ally who all is involved in this clown nonsense, including Ivy. 

Kai's support for the city council has gone up since the video of the clowns was released.  High on power, he vows to remove the "weakest link" of the group, who he conveniently has tied up and gagged.  To make up for running away before they killed Bob, Ivy needs to shoot the first nail into the poor guy's head. 

In a conversation with Beverly, Kai reveals the story behind the loss of his parents.  After a motorcycle accident, his dad became angry and abusive, and his mom killed him and herself in a murder/suicide.  Instead of reporting the death, Kai and his brother (hot therapist Rudy Vincent!), lock them in the bedroom, covering them in lye, and continuing to cash their disability and pension checks.  And Kai continues to visit them, Norman Bates-style!
