This is it, ‘Coven’ fans — the end of the road for ‘American Horror Story’s third bewitching installment. And while it’s always hard to see a story come to a close, there’s something about this particular season that makes the sadness even more bittersweet. Perhaps it’s the characters or the dark but ever-present humor. Or maybe it’s simply because of Myrtle Snow’s frizzy red wig (which she has in bulk, by the way). But regardless of the reason, I seriously don’t want this season to end. But end it will…and boy-oh-boy what a way to go.
I was able to catch an early showing of ‘Coven’s season finale “The Seven Wonders” and am ready to cast a spell of knowledge into your (potentially beheaded) minds. So if you’d rather be completely surprised by how it all goes down, I suggest you make like Zoe and Kyle and runaway to Epcot because there’s a bunch of teasers coming your way. Let’s dig in on all the diabolical details below.
-As promised, Stevie Nicks returns to sing one final (and highly appropriate) song to our remaining witches. Can you guess which (witch?) song? (Hint: see the episode title.)
-Though emotions and talents run high for the majority of the episode as the battle for the next Supreme wages on, the show still managed to throw in a few hilarious pop culture references, including a Liza Minnelli and 'Sound of Music Live' shout-out.
-Several lives are lost by the end of the hour, but unlike other times, only one gets resurrected. This includes another witch burning that's actually...voluntary?
-Kyle becomes the new Spalding of Miss Robichaux's Academy, meaning fans can enjoy seeing Evan Peters dressed in a suit.
-Sometimes tag can be dangerous. That's all I'm going to say. (It'll make sense to you later, I promise.)
-Though we already know the fates of Marie and Delphine, viewers will also get to see what exactly happened to Fiona after her demise.
-And the new Supreme is...JUST KIDDING! I would never do that to you. That's one thing you'll have to find out on your own.
'American Horror Story: Coven's season finale kicks off on Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 10/9c on FX.
