American Horror Story is truly bizarre. In fact, it's strange enough that you can barely go to a bar without overhearing people talk about their theories as to what's going on with the characters and plots.  And there's a lot of characters and a really vague plot.

However thin the plot appears to be, the show’s creators, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, have managed to weave together perfectly balanced elements of shock, horror and storytelling to accomplish what many thought would fall flat. And in a way, the doubts people had about the show actually ignited the fury behind trying to figure out what Murphy and Falchuk are planning.

What will happen to both the living and the dead people stuck in the Murder House? W

hat's growing inside Vivian?

And most of all, who controls "The Infantata" in the basement?

Here are nine American Horror Story plot theories.

The entire story is made up by Violet after finding the dead bodies of Ben, Vivian & Hayden and being institutionalized.

Before you shake your head and say this is crazy, think about the show we're talking about. So far, the rules of American Horror Story exist only within whatever Murphy & Falchuk can come up with. Knowing this, it's possible that after the scene in the pilot where Viv cuts Ben after she catches him in bed with Hayden, what if Ben lashed out and accidentally killed her, then Hayden, and finally himself. Violet comes home and discovers the grizzly psycho sex murder scene and becomes unglued and is institutionalized, spending the rest of her days living out this fantasy within her head. 

It makes sense because during the pivotal moments of the show, Violet is the person that demands to be in the house. She even says, "We'll take it," to Marcie the Realtor in the pilot, and tells her mother she'd run away before she'd leave the house.

Tate is the puppeteer of "The Infantata" in the basement.

There have been lots of subtle hints that Tate is tied to the creature thing in the basement. He uses it to protect Violet multiple times, including when he has Violet lure both the high school bully and the home invasion killer down stairs. But also, he is insistent about meeting Violet there so that they can be alone,. It's as though he is the only person that can shield her from the monster.

When Tate initially got the bully into the basement, the camera flashed between him and "The Infantata," causing Violet to ask him what that monster was and how controlled it.  However, once Tate saved Violet from the Home Invasion killers, she stopped questioning his intentions, and instead started asking what the monster was, prompting the tale of Dr. Charles Montgomery's most vile work, the reanimation of his own dismembered child.

The troubled past Ben Harmon talks about was caused by bizarre psychic powers.

There is something about Ben that just doesn't add up, starting with the house's bizarre hold over him. It causes him to wake up in the middle of the night and play with fire. Not to mention his insane meetings with Larry the fire starter. More importantly, is the fact that Ben is becoming slowly unglued.

When Ben meets with Tate in the playground on Halloween, he tells Tate that he can relate to him more than Tate can understand, making him quite possibly the worst therapist on Earth if not the most pathetic human being. If Ben's childhood antics were the cause of super bizarre psychic powers, it would make sense how he is extremely susceptible to the power of the house and incapable on fighting it off.

Larry is a psychic manifestation of Ben's that occurs when Ben is under a tremendous amount of stress.

Now that we've attributed Ben's insanity to psychic powers, it can justify the whole Larry subplot. Larry only seems to show up when Ben is alone or when he is in the midst of a super stressful situation. Larry initially warned Ben to get out of the house, which was solid information, but he then began to do crazy things, like murder Hayden.

Larry's good-bad duality can easily be attributed to Ben's own downfalls. It can also explain why, even though Violet could hear Larry's beating and pounding on the front door, she could not see him outside when she looked through the peep hole. Ben was at the hospital with Viv where a nurse had just fainted after seeing what might have been the devil baby growing at an exponential rate, stressing Ben out and summoning Larry.

Viv's Unborn Child Will Replace Tate As The Keeper Of "The Infantata"

Even though we still have no idea who is the father of the devil baby inside Vivian's oven, one thing is clear. That unborn baby-mutant is exceptionally important to the storyline. We knew this before the show even started based on the marketing campaign with Vivian's pregnant belly mirroring the body of the gimp.

Tate has made it clear that whatever is going on, he needs to continue to be treated by Ben and have some relationship in the house. Could it be that the initial plan was to entrap the whole family, forcing Vivian to give birth to the new keeper of "The Infantata" and then have Ben go stark crazy and murder the whole family, freeing Tate? It seems like this was the plan between Tate and Constance until Tate met Violet and his feelings for her forced him to start deviating from the plan.

The Murder House property traps the souls of anyone who dies on the property.

So far, there have been a couple of indications that if you die in the Murder House your ghost is trapped there.  Between, the two nurses showing up in the basement to take revenge on the home invasion killers and watching Moira weep constantly that she is trapped there, we know once you're in the grasp of the house, there's no getting out.

After last night's episode, it's pretty clear that if you die on that property, you get to be a reoccurring character on American Horror Story.  After Addie's run over by a car, Constance drags her lifeless body onto the Murder House property with the hopes that Addie's soul may die there and continue to be around. Additionally, the ghost of Hayden has returned to mess with Ben and Viv. I bet Ben wishes he'd put her in a wood chipper or called the cops now that his Fatal Attraction mistress can continue to torture him for all eternity.

Moira is the daughter of one of the original servants to the Montgomery's.

We know that Moira is trapped in the house, but was she always trapped in that house? Ryan Murphy has said that all the characters are tied together in one way or another. So what if, Moira was destined to live a life of servitude from the get go, catering to the whims of whomever owned the house?

But the house had other plans for her, and tied her to it forever.  There was some speculation that Moira may have been the genderless child of the Montgomery's but it would make more sense for her to be related to one of their servants, instead. That way, it allows for her to have a relationship to the Montgomery's and then establish a relationship with Constance, tying both of them to the house indefinitely.

Constance practices magic and that's why she has control over Moira and the Murder House

No one has such a strong hold over the Murder House like Constance, coming and going as she pleases and adhering her will to everyone within the house.  She tortures poor Moira and shows up in the middle of the night to stop Ben from setting himself on fire.  It's as though she knows what is happening and what to do to keep things going in a certain direction.

Regardless if this is because of magic or her knowledge of the house, one thing is clear: Constance has a plan and she knows what's up. She's able to control almost everyone with the exception of Violet, and that could be because Violet is a virgin and in horror stories, the only thing that keeps you alive is keeping your pants on. It might also be why Constance is continually out to get Violet, but I have a sneaky suspicion that it's because if Tate and Violet become to intimate, Tate might choose to stay dead and take Violet with him.

Tate & Violet are Romeo & Juliet, star crossed because he is dead and she is alive.

Tate's a deranged high school student that seems to spend more time at the Harmon house than all of the Harmon's combined.  Violet's a cutter with a heart of gold and a tongue as sharp as her wit.  The only thing that's attempting to keep them apart appears to be their parents, if you want to believe that Constance is Tate's mother, and I do.

But my suspicion that Tate actually massacred his high school and then killed himself in the early '90s complicates his ability to be with Violet, who he is apparently falling for. Who says something like death can get in the way of a crush?  Mind you, if the two really are Romeo & Juliet, Juliet kills herself when she discovers that Romeo is dead.  And it's likely that once the truth of Tate is revealed, the devil baby is born and Ben finally goes insane, Violet might just try and kill herself to be with the only person that seems to have it together, her dead boyfriend.
