Will Doris Take The Pill In 'AHS: Double Feature'? Lily Rabe's "Red Tide" Character Doesn't Seem Bound For Greatness

In the immortal words of Jefferson Airplane, one pill makes you larger and one pill makes you a creative genius? At least the latter is one possibility of taking the pill in the "Red Tide" part of American Horror Story: Double Feature. Spoilers ahead. But if Doris takes the pill in "Red Tide," it seems she won't be hit with her own interior designer muse. Doris Gardner might be scared of contracting Lyme, but there's another self-inflicted disease that she should be far more frightened of if she takes that pill.

Lily Rabe's character may never take the Provincetown muse pill. After all, in only two episodes, she's already seen what it has done to her screenwriting husband (Finn Wittrock's Harry) and her viola-playing daughter (Ryan Kiera Armstrong's Alma). They may be outputting enviable art, but they're also cruel — lashing out while not sleeping and having a penchant for blood.

But Alma, in particular, hits on Doris's insecurities, calling out her mom for not understanding "greatness" and saying she's a "perfectly ordinary woman." Alma, probably thirsting for the sweet, sweet blender meat says, "You want us to leave because you're jealous. I told you, you don't understand art. You don't understand inspiration. You don't understand how hard it is to be great." One thing Doris does understand is how mean her aspiring child prodigy has become and she breaks down.
