For the most part, I'm a huge supporter of the holiday season. The decorations, the food, the family bonding…it's all great. But last week's Thanksgiving Eve had one big thing missing from it this year — a new episode of 'American Horror Story: Coven.' And I don't know about you, but I get a little cranky without my weekly helping of horror, so thankfully we're back on track this week with a brand new hour of bewitching goodness…or rather, evilness.
But you don't have to wait until Wednesday night to get a taste of what's to come of our favorite little coven of witches. I was able to catch this week's episode of "The Sacred Taking" earlier today and have a bunch of juicy teasers at my disposal. As always
, I promise not to give away too much information, but if you're a stickler about spoilers then I suggest you look no further.
For those of you still reading, start getting excited because this episode marks the spark of a slow burn as we make our way closer and closer to Season 3's epic climax. As a dark cloud forms over Miss Robichaux's Academy, battle lines are drawn and almost everyone has a target on their back. But don't just take my word for it. Feast your eyes on all the diabolical details below!
-Queenie gets in touch with her inner Edgar Allan Poe. Take that to mean what you will.
-Patti LuPone is back as the bible-obsessed Joan Ramsey and she is none too thrilled with her son Luke's ongoing association with their wicked neighbors. (Apparently saving someone from a zombie attack means very little these days.) And just wait until you see how she distributes her own unique form of punishment.
-That three-way between Zoe, Madison, and FrankenKyle may sound okay in theory, but in reality it's starting to get a bit rocky, especially after one of them lays their true feelings on the line.
-Fiona gets visited by a few Ghosts of Killings Past, which leads to a rather interesting turn of events concerning our ailing Supreme.
-Witch hunter Hank hits an unlikely mark, which opens Cordelia's eyes (figuratively speaking, of course) to who the real Big Bad is.
-Misty Day joins the coven for a deadly mission that could weed out the new Supreme.
-Delphine and Marie Laveau's epic battle for revenge finally comes to a head.
Are you even more excited now for this week's episode? If so, then I consider this to be a job well done. And, as always, please feel free to share all of your thoughts and predictions in the comments below!
'American Horror Story: Coven' airs on Wednesdays at 10/9c on FX.
