'American Horror Story: Coven' - 'The Seven Wonders' Finale Recap

'American Horror Story: Coven' - 'The Seven Wonders' Finale Reca
Oh Coven, cant’ say that I’ll miss you much or that I’m sad to see you go but, you were an often fun, mostly strange and frustrating ride. It isn’t necessarily accurate to say that the finale is an utter disappointment, especially since the entire season has been kind of a let down. But it was virtually free of any shocks or surprises; even the apparent “plot twists” were predictable and expected. As always, there are some great moments, lines of dialogue and performances that make the episode bearable, but it ultimately falls flat and left me feeling cold. Also, where was the horror? This ...

'American Horror Story: Coven' Theory Of The Week - Is This The End Of Fiona?

January 27th, 2014 10:26am EST
American Horror Story: Coven
Let’s face it; whenever somebody “dies” in Coven, it is hard to take it at face value. Time and time again, characters emerged from their apparent deaths to the surprise of nobody. I mean, Madison, Myrtle, Misty, Queenie, Kyle, need I go on? So when Fiona was brutally killed by the Axeman last episode, it is only natural for us to question the validity or permanence of such an act. There is a slight possibility that Cordelia’s vision is a manipulation by Fiona, yes she saw the violent attack and supposed aftermath (Fiona got fed to the alligators), but Fiona is a pretty powerful witch. Or e...

'American Horror Story: Coven' - 'Go To Hell' Recap

January 24th, 2014 8:32am EST
American Horror Story: Coven
With everything that happens in this latest episode of American Horror Story, “Go To Hell”, it really is a rather dull hour of television. Particularly AHS, which has always provided a smidgen of something to keep me entertained. Sure, it has its bit moments of excitement and shock, but ultimately left me feeling… Underwhelmed? Bored? Indifferent? This season hasn’t been the strongest in terms of story or character, so I don’t expect an instant improvement on that front, but while Coven’s narrative has suffered greatly, its sense of fun and entertainment has never really wavered. Whenever t...

'American Horror Story:Coven' Theory Of The Week - What Will Be Fiona's Fate?

January 22nd, 2014 9:45am EST
'American Horror Story:Coven' Theory Of The Week
Fiona’s search for immortality has been a major aspect of Coven’s narrative. Along with who will be the next Supreme it is what drives most of the story. The two are intrinsically tied, as Fiona desperately wants to stop the next Supreme from assuming power. She longs to kill her successor in order to remain alive and in power. The season has derived much of its drama and conflict from this very situation and there are many ways these dilemmas could be solved. Fiona is very willing to do anything to get her way. Will this obsessive pursuit be her downfall? 

American Horror Story has a hist...

'American Horror Story: Coven' - 'Protect The Coven' Recap

January 20th, 2014 9:20am EST
Kathy Bates as Delphine
Well this season is really dragging, huh?

Coven continues to take one step forward, and two steps back in narrative and once again, leans entirely too much on the whole Supreme mystery. I’ve griped about my issues with the season before, and really not much has changed. “Protect the Coven” is another pulpy hour full of the bitchy dialogue and hammy acting we love, but not much else.

Commence Recap:

First up. It’s a Delphine LaLaurie origin story. Yay? Ugh, enough with this character, did we really need a whole cold open to show that she is a messed up psychopath? We kind of already kne...

'American Horror Story: Coven' Theory Of The Week - Could Cordelia Be The Next Supreme?

January 14th, 2014 4:14pm EST
Sarah Paulson as Cordelia
The question of who will be the new Supreme has become the biggest mystery in American Horror Story: Coven, it has also been the main source of drama and conflict on the show. As the series progresses the secret intensifies and it is basically what motivates most of the characters actions. Ryan Murphy and Co. have really milked this storyline for all its worth and will likely wait until the very last moment to unveil the true Supreme’s identity. Fiona is hell-bent on killing her successor and she is on her way to kill the entire coven to ensure just that; Madison is desperate to take power,...

'American Horror Story: Coven' - 'The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks' Recap

January 10th, 2014 2:13pm EST
Jessica Lange as Fiona
Its becoming more and more clear that Coven is just a big ol’ mess, an undoubtedly fun mess, but an utter mess all the same. American Horror Story has never been a source of exceptionally crafted storytelling, it lacks any kind of subtlety and grace, any nuance or pacing, even logic and continuity. Instead it provides an array of fantastical scenarios full of over the top characters and performances that one can’t help but enjoy. Murder House suffered from not so great characters with questionable motivations and sense (did anyone really care about the Harmons? That show was all about Const...

'American Horror Story: Coven' Theory Of The Week - Is Queenie Really Dead?

December 18th, 2013 10:03am EST
Gabourey Sidibe as Queenie
The wait is long for a new episode of American Horror Story, so in order to quell my (and yours of course) longing for new material, I’ll be checking in periodically with some theories, quandaries and reflections on Coven, so far.

Last week’s brilliant episode, “Head” ended with a shocking and devastating final sequence that found Marie Laveau’s entire tribe decimated by Hank: the witch hunter. Most devastating of all, they killed Queenie! Worst of all, it appears that she is actually dead, not Coven dead, but dead dead. Say it isn’t so. Queenie is a truly interesting character and her jou...

'American Horror Story: Coven' - 'The Sacred Taking' Recap

December 7th, 2013 2:49pm EST
Gabourey Sidibe as Queenie
“Coven” is back! Finally, that one-week gap was unexpectedly torturous, I had been so used to the weekly fix of witchy bitchery that suffering through that annoying mini-hiatus (who cares about Thanksgiving, really?) gave me some serious withdrawal symptoms. But all is good now that there is a new episode to dissect.

“The Sacred Taking” opens with Queenie asserting her new Voodoo badass persona, cutting a rapist’s heart out, dissing the coven and saying things like, “This is Voodoo,” and “War is coming.” Zoe and Madison try to convince her to come back, Queenie makes it clear that once you...

Emma Roberts as Madison
“I got one life and I’m not wasting it,” says a pre-bus crash Kyle in the episode’s opening flashback. He and his fraternity brothers find themselves in a tattoo parlor where they all get douche-y tats, except for dear ol’ Kyle who waxes on about his reasons, not to. Another attempt to show how exceptional Kyle was, what a great future he had ahead of him, and that he had a semblance of a personality before he turned Franken-monster. It’s the seventh episode in and they are still trying to make me care about Kyle, its not working. Though I have to say that Franken-Kyle’s reaction too findin...

'American Horror Story: Coven' Theory Of The Week - Who Threw The Acid?

November 19th, 2013 10:10am EST
American Horror Story: Coven
“Burn, Witch, Burn” shows Fiona successfully convincing the council that Myrtle was the culprit behind Cordelia’s attack, stealthily framing her long-time rival with the help of Queenie and Spalding. In “The Axeman Cometh” Marie denies any involvement in the assault, introducing the potential existence of a new force threatening the witches of Miss Robichaux’s, and leaving the mystery open for discussion.

Sure, there is the slight possibility that Myrtle could still be guilty of perpetrating the acid attack, or Marie could be lying to Hank about her non-role in the assault, but it works ...

'American Horror Story: Coven' Recap: 'The Axeman Cometh'

November 15th, 2013 9:06am EST
American Horror Story: Coven
Wednesday night’s episode of American Horror Story:Coven was the CRAZIEST episode by far this season! SPOILER ALERT!!! If you haven’t seen the episode, you need to go home right now and watch it because it was 60 minutes of brilliant television!

Just when you think the episode is over- it’s not…and it unleashed a handful of new secrets. A lot of questions were answered last night so let’s get right into it.

The Axeman

The episode opens up to New Orleans in 1919, the city has a dangerous serial killer/jazz fanatic lurking the streets, he’s out to get women with his axe, especially women w...

'American Horror Story: Coven' Theory Of The Week - Who Is The Next Supreme?

November 12th, 2013 9:01pm EST
Nan, Queenie, and Zoe
Who is the next Supreme? It has been a significant question posed by the series since the first episode of the season. With Madison’s death and the subsequent reveal that she was not in fact next in line for the coveted title, the mystery remains, intriguing both the audience and the characters alike. No doubt that being Supreme is an appealing prospect for many a witch, but the potential dangers that face the witch that would ultimately dethrone Fiona are undesirable at best. So, who will be the one to fall under Fiona’s desperate wrath?

After last week’s “Burn, Witch, Burn” the show de...

“American Horror Story” is one of the most insane, absurd and simply entertaining series currently airing, and with its flawless performances, campy and witty dialogue, relentless pacing, and audacious approach to drama, Coven has quickly become a fan favorite season.

'American Horror Story: Coven' Recap: 'Fearful Pranks Ensue' On Halloween

October 31st, 2013 11:00am EDT
American Horror Story: Coven
Last night's episode of American Horror Story was a mix of Mean Girl antics infused with a little 'dead' from The Walking Dead. Just watch the episode if you don't believe me! In the spirit of Halloween the episode had a Halloween-ish theme, whatever that means. The show is legit based on Halloween stories- every week is Halloween in American Horror Story.

In the wake of Madison's (Emma Roberts) death, Fiona demands for her servant Spalding to clean up the dead body. He rolls the body in the rug and whisks her away.

Meanwhile, Queenie is badly hurt; Delia and Fiona take her to the upstair...

'American Horror Story: Coven' - 'The Replacements' Review

October 25th, 2013 3:53pm EDT
American Horror Story: Coven
Before I delve in this week’s episode, “The Replcements”, a few words on last week’s “Boy Parts”, which I did not get the chance to review.

Following the exposition heavy premiere episode, “Boy Parts” does a good job in jumping off from where the show left off and advancing the narrative. Without the seemingly endless voice-over monologues and countless flashback scenes retelling various characters’ origin stories, the narrative takes a more lively and entertaining pace. Despite the crowded and extensive cast, there were essentially three easily digestible narrative threads in this second ...

'American Horror Story: Coven 'The Replacements' - What Exactly Went Down Last Night?

American Horror Story: Coven
Okay, we need to talk about this. WTF went down last night on American Horror Story? Is this episode called ‘The Replacements’ because everyone is being replaced? Oh- guess I should mention…SPOILER ALERTS!

It’s 1971, and Fiona is a young, beautiful witch. She’s having a conversation with an older woman who we find out is the supreme witch of her generation. Fiona doesn’t partake in activities with the other witches, her focus is being a supreme and proving to the elderly she has what it takes. But the old woman laughs Fiona off, reminding her what she had to go through to become a supreme....

'American Horror Story: Coven' - 'Bitchcraft' Welcomes Us To Witches

American Horror Story: Coven
It’s that time of the year again, a new season of “American Horror Story” has begun and this time its witches, bitches. The guiltiest pleasure of all has arrived and I couldn’t be happier. Indeed Coven takes us to New Orleans (a city rich in magical folklore), more specifically to Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies, a safe haven for the dwindling witch population in the country. “Bitchcraft” introduces us to the world of Coven, full of the campy, shamelessly over the top material, and riddled with the grand stylistic flourishes that have become so characteristic of the se...

Emmy Nominations: Surprise Inclusions And Snubs

July 19th, 2013 11:05am EDT
'American Horror Story: Asylum'
The Emmy nominations were revealed yesterday. While there may not have been any Earth-shattering news, there are always snubs – and surprise inclusions – to snark about. Let’s dig in.

Snubs

Let’s start with the bad. A big question mark going into the nominations was whether the academy would welcome back ‘Arrested Development.’ With the exception of a nod for Jason Bateman, the answer is apparently “no.” It didn’t even get writing or supporting actor nominations.

Also noticeably missing from comedy supporting actor: two-time winner Eric Stonestreet of ‘Modern Family.’ With so many talent...

American Horror Story: Asylum came back from hiatus with a bang. With only four episodes left in the miniseries, “The Name Game” certainly did not disappoint. In this episode we witnessed two unexpected deaths, a surprising deflowering, a mysterious character reappearance and a bizarre Briarcliff birth.

Dylan McDermott is back on American Horror Story: Asylum this season and you could say he’s playing quite the different character—even if in his first scene, there were echoes of his first season appearance (it took place in a psychiatrist’s office.)

It was recently revealed that McDermott plays Bloody Face in the present time and is in fact, the son of the original, played by Zachary Quinto.

This week’s episode of American Horror Story: Asylum was all about turning tables, (no, not Adele’s “Turning Tables,”) but instead a shift of power in Briarcliff.
