At long last, we finally discover the next Supreme. It's not a mind-blowing thing, but of all the scenarios it's the safest (and most satisfying) one.

'll try to refrain from emphasizing my annoyance that all the witches are finally showing their powers and being badass -- when we only have one episode of "American Horror Story: Coven" left. Because you know what? This episode wasn't that bad, compared to the motley jambalaya that most of the other episodes have been.

I hope you wanted more of Kathy Bates' character, Delphine LaLaurie, because that's what you get this week. But as with most "American Horror Story" episodes, it's never just a simple line to the end. Nope, this week's tale is all over the place, doused in blood.

The much-ballyhooed Stevie Nicks episode of "Coven" wasn't as magical as it was advertised to be. The show practically dialled the crazy down to zero, and where we got scraps we should have had a sumptuous feast.

For this midseason/holiday finale of "American Horror Story: Coven," we've come full circle. While we've seen our share of messed-up mother/daughter relationships, tonight we got to see some father influence. It's an eye-popping good time.

'American Horror Story' Episode 8 Recap: War Is Coming

After the last two episodes of "American Horror Story: Coven" nearly lulled me into a coma (except for the always-stellar work of the veteran cast), finally, finally, everything is starting to make sense.

'American Horror Story: Coven' Episode 7 Recap: Dead Weight

Death has become so inconsequential on "American Horror Story: Coven" that nearly everyone who was killed off in the past is now walking the earth with the living. The way things are going, it doesn't seem like a good thing.

The last thing we need on "American Horror Story: Coven" is another character, but our non-wish (as is usually the case) is Ryan Murphy's command.

'American Horror Story: Coven' Episode 5 Recap: Mommy Dearest

The overarching theme in tonight's episode is the relationship (or lack thereof) between mothers and daughters. What makes a good mother? Is it ever too late to mend fences? On 'AHS,' it might be.

'American Horror Story: Coven' Episode 4 Recap: It's War

It's pretty much an all-out war in New Orleans. At the very least there's a big one brewing, and this week's episode pits multiple warring factions against each other: Fiona vs. Delia, Fiona vs. The Council, Fiona vs. Marie (OK, so it's mostly everyone against Fiona), and the voodoo witches vs. the Robichaux witches.

'American Horror Story: Coven' Episode 3 Recap: Nothing's Better Than The Real Thing

The obvious focus of "American Horror Story" this season is aging and the passage of time. This episode in particular zooms in on "replacements," or being replaced. Never a good feeling.

'American Horror Story: Coven' Episode 2 Recap: The Whole Not A Sum Of Its 'Parts'

Literally every fibre of my being is fighting against the urge to write this, but here it is: There is an entire segment of "American Horror Story: Coven" that isn't quite working.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

We're most definitely not at Briarcliff anymore. Unlike its faster-paced, frenetic predecessor "American Horror Story: Asylum," "American Horror Story: Coven" is a slow burn.
