Sometimes even Stevie Nicks can't save you.
'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.
You'll remember him from films such as Zero Dark Thirty and TV shows like The Following, Criminal Minds and Ringer which starred Sarah Michelle Gellar. Let's see what makes Mike Colter tick!
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.
Many returning shows outdid themselves this year.
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.
This must be the Season of the Witch. Not only did the brilliantly warped minds behind American Horror Story, Ryan and Murphy and Brad Falchuk, create a Coven of them for Season 3, but they also made the witchiest woman of them all part of it. And Stevie Nicks couldn't be more delighted.
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.
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.
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.
When American Horror Story chose New Orleans as the setting for the 3rd season, they decided to go balls-out Southern Gothic. From slave-torturing immortal bitches to a coven of misfit belles trying to control their powers and wanton desires.
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.
So why do we care so much about the witch at this particular cultural moment? Perhaps its because we seem obsessed with the "mysteries of womanhood."
