Tate is the true monster of the show but because Evan has made him so likable and lovable and complex, I think people are torn.
In which Ryan Murphy actually says that Tate raped Vivien. So all the stupid fangirls who are saying it wasn’t rape can go shut the fuck up now.
“ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s go back to last week, did you always plan on Tate being Rubber Man? RYAN MURPHY: Yes we did. I think the thing about it even from the first episode and that first therapy session there was always a certain thing to his character that led you to believe him. People in some weird way are pissed that he’s the Rubber Man like the fact that he raped Violet’s mother makes him…”
THANK YOU, RYAN. I was afraid the writers were just going to gloss over this, but I’m glad it was said.
