(FX)Oh Queenie, what did you do?Never have I ever imagined that I'd find myself rooting for Madame LaLaurie to not get locked up and mutilated in a cage, but turning this season into a thematically complicated race war when it should be focusing on the internal Coven war is a mistake, and same goes for turning Queenie into a lame, villainous traitor. Why did she suddenly turn on her sisters, who have been her friends since the beginning? Why did she turn on Fiona, who saved her life and told...Read Full Story
(FX)"Axeman. Fighter of the Co-Ven. Would totally kill a nun. He's a master of the saxophone and chopping up everyone..."
Okay, so that's officially the worst thing I've ever written. But Ryan Murphy knew that Always Sunny references would abound after he named "The Axeman Cometh" after one of network-mate Sunny's most popular episodes of all time, "The Nightman Cometh."

Well that was fast. Before I could even come up with a clever headline about Frances Conroy's character Myrtle Snow's untimely death, Misty Day (Lily Rabe) went ahead and brought her charcoaled corpse back to life.

Also, "why are we being forced to sit here and watch while this young woman talks to...Read Full Story
(FX)Try as Fiona may to grasp at the straws currently holding her Coven together, by the end of tonight's Halloween episode, "Fearful Pranks Ensue," everything had officially fallen apart. The Council was made aware of Madison's death, leaving the tireless Myrtle Snow hot on Fiona's trail. Cordelia, meanwhile, became the victim of an acid attack, while her husband was off traveling the globe murdering hot lonely redheads. And — perhaps worst of all — back at Miss Robichaux's Academy a crowd...Read Full Story
(FX)"This coven doesn't need a new Supreme. It needs a new rug." — Fiona Goode
I cannot be alone here when I say that I absolutely did not see that one coming (until the episode's final moments, that is). Ryan Murphy has been brutal in past iterations of American Horror Story, but killing off one of Coven's most vibrant, vital leads in its third week was a huge "gotcha!" accomplishment even for him. And having this young witch die at the aging hands of Jessica Lange's Fiona Goode — a woman...Read Full Story
