Character of the Week: Constance Langdon
Constance Langdon could have easily been a character that everybody hated. She is a racist, homophobic, Southerner who murdered her husband, Moira, and told Larry to kill her son Beauregard. Why is it that she is so amazing then? Well, she is wonderfully played by Jessica Lange, who makes her into a villain you just love to hate instead of just plain hate. She had four children, and by the end of the season we find out that three of them are dead (Beau was murdered, Tate was killed by the police after setting Larry on fire and shooting up his school, and Addie was hit by a car) and we never find out about her fourth child. On the very last episode, however, we see that she is now taking care of Tate's child that he had with his girlfriend's mom, and oh yeah, the child turns out to be a murdereous toddler. One of the most heartbreaking moments on the show was after Addie died and Constance went to the morgue to make her a "pretty girl."
