American Horror Story: 1984 has been delivering shocks and surprises, but nothing could have prepared fans for Episode 100.

It’s safe to say American Horror Story: 1984 has been one of the most shocking in the series, but who could have seen last week’s events coming? Sit tight, we’re counting down the most shocking moments from “Episode 100,” below. Please note, there are spoilers ahead if you missed the latest episode of American Horror Story

In “Red Dawn,” Brooke and Margaret are the only survivors (or so we think, more on this later). Since Brooke was caught in the act of stabbing Montana, Margaret was quick to place the blame on poor, innocent Brooke. And as we can see from one the first scenes after the opening credits, a sign reads, “Brooke wants your blood” and it’s 1989.

Time has passed, everyone has learned to believe Brooke is the one who killed everyone and the camp has now apparently become a popular site for horror-seekers and true crime enthusiasts. It’s too bad no one comes out of that area alive, all thanks to Montana and Xavier, who have decided to murder anyone and everyone who steps foot in there. Ray is against it, of course, but there isn’t much he can do since they are all dead.

Meanwhile, Mr. Jingles and Richard aka The Night Stalker are running from the cops. That doesn’t stop Richard from murdering everyone, though, and Mr. Jingles is nothing but his sidekick. That is, until Jingles orchestrates Richard’s capture. Richard ends up in the same prison as Brooke and teases her after she is given the death sentence.

Here are the biggest shocks from American Horror Story: 1984‘s latest episode.

1. Briarcliff Manor

Fans LOVE when the American Horror Story universe connects to other chapters, even if it’s just a quick name drop. That’s what happened in “Episode 100” when it’s mentioned that Margaret owns Briarcliff Manor (AHS: Asylum). Don’t get too excited, though, there are any other connections, unfortunately.

2. Brooke’s execution

For the crimes she did not commit, Brooke is sentenced to death by lethal injection. Richard offers to save her if she accepts Satan as her savior, but she refuses. Make no mistake, this doesn’t mean she’s still all about being good. She’s also not happy with God. And really, who can blame her? She’s had awful luck! Can I also note the scene was brilliantly shot? From the music to cinematography.

This isn’t what’s most shocking, though. As it turns out, Brooke didn’t need to accept Satan into her life to be saved. In what’s the most shocking scene in the episode…

3. Nurse Rita

Okay, “Rita” isn’t really her name, but Angelica Ross’ character, Dee Dee is back! How did she survive? Or, a possibly more important question is, how did she become the executioner at the prison? We have so many questions that only next week’s episode can answer!

4. Trevor

Well, what do you know! Trevor is alive! If you remember, Margaret tried to kill him after confessing she is the killer. Trevor survived, though. Instead of helping Brooke by telling authorities the truth, he makes a deal with Margaret. Trevor wants money, but Margaret has a better idea. The two end up getting married (you can’t testify against your spouse) and have a…complicated relationship.

5. Lack of cameos

I’m not sure if this is considered cheating or not — but I’d say it’s shocking how American Horror Story missed the opportunity of having dozens of cameos for its 100th episode. We were all expecting to see more familiar faces, but that was a disappointment and a shocking one. For being its 100th episode, it sure failed to deliver and came off feeling more like a regular episode. Next week should be the Halloween episode, let’s hope that one does better.

American Horror Story: 1984 airs Wednesdays at 10/9c only on FX.
