Dark, yet fun premiere! Although the lack of Hester upsets me, I'm sure they will pick up on that, forward. Also, why would Hester go through all that trouble during season one, just to confess what really happened to Denise right away? Is "their" excuse the double jeopardy thing? I get that they needed an excuse for the Chanels to be out in the world, but after watching last year's season finale, this move seems way less meaningful.
On a side note, the timeline confuses me a bit. After the 80's flashback, we are set in 2016, yet later Chanel mentions her sorority life from two year ago. Is the current action happening in 2017?
Am I overthinking it? Probably. At the end of the day, it's a Ryan Murphy show and something won't feel right anyway.
