Spoilers ahead for the AHS: 1984 finale. Though American Horror Story usually ends almost as dire as it started, the AHS: 1984 ending was uncharacteristically happy thanks to Finn Wittrock’s character. AHS seasons have certainly had satisfying finales, but they typically aren’t as feel-good as when Wittrock’s Bobby Richter walked away from Camp Redwood alive. His ghost family of his father, grandmother, and uncle watched on as he reentered the living world to Mike + The Mechanics’ "The Living Years." In the end, 1984 channeled the more uplifting films of the 1980s than the slasher genre the season started with resulting in a ghost story with quite the happy ending.
As with every season of AHS, there were twists and turns in the finale as the son of Benjamin Richter (aka, Mr. Jingles) came to Camp Redwood in 2019 and learned what happened back in 1989. Over the last 30 years, the ghosts of the camp have ensured that real-life serial killer "Nightstalker" Richard Ramirez is continuously tortured and killed so he can never attack innocent people again. Margaret Booth somehow managed to become a murderous ghost on the premises after being decapitated and put through the wood chipper. And Brooke and Donna both managed to be the final girls … and maintain remarkably young looks. But the biggest twist of all was the fact that nothing sinister occurred to Benjamin’s son Bobby.
