American Horror Story: Roanoke’s Hot Uber Driver Might Be More Important Than We Think

Rhett Snow could be connected to ‘Coven’

Last night's episode of American Horror Story: Roanoke was clearly sponsored by Coke Zero and Uber. Towards the end of the episode, we learned our beloved Cricket (Leslie Jordan) was captured by The Butcher (Kathy Bates) and her squad when he tried to rescue Flora (Saniyya Sidney). He ditched his Uber to chase down the missing girl — though why he left that hot man for a feral child is beyond me.

Rhett Snow (Billy Snow), the talking-head Uber driver, quickly made the internet thirsty with his — dare we say it — "jawline for days." He wasn't onscreen very long, but he did leave a lasting impression on fans wearing their tinfoil hats. Reddit user tar1857 believes he's related to witch Myrtle Snow (Frances Conroy) from American Horror Story: Coven, mainly because anyone sharing a name in the AHS universe is too much of a coincidence to not be intentional.

Naturally, there were "He knows nothing" Jon Snow jokes, but Reddit user euixxx raised an interesting point: If he wasn't important to the plot, why give him a name and a chance to tell his story at all? User colecrafter later commented that Snow's first name "would definitely fit to finish the string to spell M U R D E R" that the two evil nurses had started.

Fans on Twitter were also connecting the dots, and now we're really wondering if we've actually seen the last of Rhett Snow. According to IMDb, Snow is only credited for "Chapter 4," but this wouldn't be the first time AHS has toyed with IMDb credits. (Fun fact: Cheyenne Jackson's credit for this episode and last week's is for "Voice," a.k.a. the interviewer's voice. Sorry, Evan Peters fans.)

At least one thing is for certain regarding Rhett Snow: I should start using Uber immediately.
