It’s all a lie. I think … wait … it’s not a lie.

If you saw “American Horror Story: Chapter 6,” you are probably really confused. It’s okay, I’m in the same boat as you, and so are thousands of people who tuned in for the Wednesday show.

It was all a show. A show within a show. According to series creator and producer Ryan Murphy, “Things that you thought to be true about people are revealed to not be true.”

Is Murphy saying all the episodes in this season so far are not true? Is the Roanoke fake?

For what seemed like the first time in AHS history, episode five was a good closing to what seemed like the end of a season. Episode six throws us back into the jumble of confusion AHS fans have learned to love and hate.

We were introduced to a new character within the first minute of the show — the mastermind behind “My Roanoke Nightmare” — not Murphy, but Sidney. He was the “creator” of the show and wants to make a sequel combining “real life actors” and the cast. All in the same house, at the same time of the blood moon.

Every returning actor has been affected by the negative events to some extent. They all hate each other and now they have to survive the lost civilization.

You are probably thinking, “What’s so different about this?”

The show is now filmed “found footage” style with the actors from “Roanoke Nightmare” playing different characters.

“I had to call up Sarah Paulson and Kathy Bates. We didn’t tell them (the twist) this year,” Murphy said. “So we had them thinking this idea that they were playing one thing through the whole year, and right around the time we started shooting episode four, I called them up and I said, ‘OK, I didn’t want to tell you this, you’re actually something completely different than what the audience thought you were.’”

This episode is so different and really refreshing. It made me rethink everything I watched so far. It’s confusing to get used to the new faces with each character playing a different role. The way they presented the story is cool because you see the “real people” and the actors playing them interacting.

We don’t have much on the “real” Butcher and the lost colony. All we know is they have already started terrorizing the inhabitants of the house.

You can catch new episodes of “American Horror Story” every Wednesday on FX.
