Episode 3 recap
The previous episode of American Horror Stories Season 2, titled Drive, was directed by Yangzom Brauen and was written by Manny Coto. It also had guest appearances from Bella Thorne, Nico Greetham, Anthony De La Torre, Billie Bodega, and Austin Woods.
The episode starts off in the middle of the night with a woman who is alone in her car and heading home. She notices a truck following her closely and flashing its headlights. She drove in terror, thinking the truck was the danger, but the man in the backseat of her car was the apparent danger.
The driver's name is Marci, and is portrayed as a promiscuous party animal who is openly married to Chaz, an understanding individual. Marci then appeared to tempt fate every night by picking up random men from clubs. This story could've gone in numerous directions, but Chaz’s extreme worry led him to start stalking Marci.
However, Marci ended up being the murderer and the man in the car's back seat was the latest of her victims. This was also the man who sat in the back seat with someone Marci had met at the pub earlier in the episode.
Paul, the truck driver who tried to warn her, ended up as her next victim as he had seen enough to end her killing spree. Chaz agreed to give their marriage another chance and help Marci with the murders, which she believed would bring them closer together. Sometime later, Chaz and Marci killed Piper together.
