"American Horror Story" has offered up many big names in past seasons and one of those big names have become a favorite for many... that would be Francis Conroy. Folks were sad to see she wasn't on the screen when "American Horror Story" season 6 returned with "My Roanoke Nightmare." Or was she?

Did nurses snuff out Frances Conroy?

Some fans got all excited when seeing Margaret, the old woman in bed who the sister nurses killed because they thougt it was Conroy returning to the show. Twitter users were dropping tweets asking if anyone could confirm if Margaret was Frances Conroy or not. Tom Chapman from "Movie Pilot" finally found out the answer to this question.

That woman who was ousted by the sister nurses was an actress named Irene Rosseen and not the much missed Conroy.

You can see why people thought that this woman might have been Conroy, but if it was the much missed actress, then she would have been killed, which would have made her appearance very short-lived on this new season. Conroy first became a mainstream favorite on another strange and bizarre show, "Six Feet Under." She played the quirky matriarch of a family-owned and run funeral home. 

On the hunt for Conroy's return?

Chapman was giving up all hope of seeing Conroy return, after all, "American Horror Story' is  already two episodes into the new season.

Watch for Conroy in episode 6!
