What Word Did The Boys Say On 'American Horror Story: Roanoke'? It Was A Warning

Just when you think things can't possibly get any scarier on American Horror Story: Roanoke , we're introduced to two boys who were drinking milk directly from a pig due to the fact that their parents had abandoned them. (I know, it's gross on so many levels.) And while they've remained silent about what they've been through, they did manage to scream out a word of warning to the police. What word did the boys say on AHS: Roanoke , exactly? That still remains unclear, but it could very well be the word "croatoan."

As some of you may know by now, the word is actually another homage to the mysterious lost colony of Roanoke. 115 settlers disappeared in Roanoke without a trace and for no explainable reason. The only thing anyone could find was one very strange thing left behind: a word, carved into a fence post on the edge of the town. And guess what that word just so happens to be? Croatoan.

The interesting thing is, though, that no one has any idea what this was supposed to mean. Was this a hint of where they had gone? Was it the name of the people who had taken them, leaving their calling card? That's for you to decide, but whatever the answer is, it could help Matt and Shelby get out of this farmhouse alive since it seemed to banish the Butcher's spirit... at least for the time being. Either way, it's a good tip to know for future reference.
