American Horror Story: Spoilers.

We’ve certainly hear the word “Croatoan” many times before when it comes to American Horror Story (how could we EVER foreget Murder House?). It’s also like a KINDA IMPORTANT fact in regards to American history, and if you feel like falling down a historical rabbit hole today, you can spend your afternoon reading all about the Lost Colony of Roanoke. 116 settlers disappeared mysteriously back in the 1500s, and when others found their campsite, the only thing left behind was the word “Croatoan” carved into the tree.

The trailer for “Chapter Four” of American Horror Story: Roanoke strongly hints that we’re going to finally learn exactly how/why/wut? is the reason behind yelling CROATOAN at some pesky ghosts. We heard it come up a lot in “Chapter Three,” but it seemed to leave everyone mystified. Well, Shelby’s going to start taking it seriously because it appears she’s being chased by something through one of the fields around the Murde House, and also it’s broad daylight.

As crazy as this is going to sound, we’re almost halfway through this AHS season. So whatever’s happening, Croatoan or not, better start making sense, and soon.
