Show: American Horror Story (FX)
Date: 12/21/2011

There's so much death in the first season finale of American Horror Story that it takes sincere effort to spoil the episode completely in 140 characters, and that doesn't even count the deaths in the episodes leading up to the finale. Spoiling horror is strange, due to the body count required of the genre. Don't we go into a horror thinking that almost no one is coming out alive?

The more egregious spoiler, then, is letting us know who survives. When presented with the difficulty of spoiling this finale completely, Twitter was up to the challenge. A brief look at #americanhorrorstory from that evening will provide you with details of exactly who died, who lived, the circumstances of the deaths, and even the ways that they nearly die prior to their deaths. Never underestimate the power of the Internet to ruin any delayed viewing experience, no matter how complex the story may be.
