Last week saw the end of ‘Coven’s hiatus and brought the popular FX hit back with a vengeance that only ‘American Horror Story’ could pull off. And the sight of Jessica Lange (Fiona Goode) and Angela Bassett (Marie Laveau) sharing so much screen time together is just the magical cherry atop this bewitching TV sundae. Well, this week is no different.
I was able to watch tonight’s upcoming episode, titled "Protect The Coven," before its big debut and am just bursting with some juicy ‘AHS’ goodies. Most of you know the drill by now, but for any newcomers, here’s the deal — I’m about to dish out a few episode spoilers, so if you’d rather not know anything until it happens, I suggest you stop reading now. As for the rest of you, let’s dig into all the diabolical details below!
-Fans will finally get a glimpse into Delphine's backstory and find out how she became the gruesome torturer we've come to know. (Let's just say, it involves a chicken.)
-We finally find out what happened to Queenie after the shooting, as well as what becomes of Delphine's head.
-The witch hunters have an axe to grind with Fiona and Marie, which leads to some rather deadly results.
-An old face returns to stir up some trouble and broker a deal with an unlikely ally.
-Cordelia makes a huge sacrifice to protect the coven (thus the title), which leaves Fiona extremely rattled.
-FrankenKyle reappears for some much-needed screen time while Zoe discovers what really happened to Nan, leading our favorite couple to make a big decision regarding their future.
'American Horror Story: Coven' airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on FX.
