After a terrifying premiere, “American Horror Story: Cult” episode 2, continued to bring plenty of fear and panic to viewers thanks to Ally Mayfair-Richards’ many phobias. As the clowns continue to multiply and new characters are introduced, the wife and mother quickly begins to lose her ability to function in life.

Although Tuesday night’s episode is titled “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” there is plenty to fear in Ally’s (Sarah Paulson) cozy Michigan suburb.

Check out these 5 things you need to know following “American Horror Story” Season 7, episode 2:

1. Ivy is reaching her breaking point.

After Ally tells Ivy (Alison Pill) that she saw a clown laying next to her in bed, Ivy searches every inch of their bedroom wielding a knife in hand. Once she realizes that the incident was brought on by Ally’s phobias, she admits that she isn’t sure how much more she can take referring to these made up scenarios that play out in Ally’s head.

2. The Wiltons are very honest.

In episode 2, viewers meet Harrison (Billy Eichner) and Meadow (Leslie Grossman) who quickly move into the residence of Ally and Ivy’s murdered neighbors. The couple isn’t ashamed to admit that they called the owners as soon as they heard about the murders because they didn’t want to miss out on a good deal. The two also admit that they are actually best friends. Harrison is gay, he and Meadow made a pact to get married if neither of them had tied the knot by the age of 35.

While Ivy and Winter (Billie Lourd) seem enchanted by the Wiltons, Ally has a hard time warming up to her new neighbors. The odd couple also own a ridiculous amount of guns.

3. Ally is an armed woman.

While she isn’t thrilled about her neighbors, Ally wasn’t against visiting their arsenal of weapons and acquiring a gun from their collection. After admitting that she has a new weapon to Dr. Vincent (Cheyenne Jackson), the therapist later tells Ivy that Ally is exhibiting early signs of agoraphobia. However, doctor-patient confidentiality prohibits him from telling her about the gun.

4. Ally is losing her grasp on reality.

Ally admits to Ivy that she doesn’t know what’s real anymore. Later on, when the city faces a blackout, Ally begs Winter to stay with her and Oz while Ivy is at work, but Winter has valuable items at home that she feels she must save and leaves the nervous mother alone with her son. As Ally frantically blocks every entrance to the house and locks all the windows she begins to see clowns everywhere. Although it is unclear whether the clowns are real or a figment of her imagination, Ally gets her gun out in order to protect herself.

5. Ally may have just become a murderer.

Armed with her new weapon, Ally plans to take Oz and go to the neighbor’s house but when she opens the door she sees a dark figure and fires. She quickly realizes that it isn’t a menacing clown that she shot but instead her restaurant employee who was coming by to deliver candles and a phone charger at Ivy’s request.

“American Horror Story: Cult” airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EDT on FX.
