Welcome back scurrdy cats… I’m trying to get my AHS:Coven mojo back, but being chained to Tamara’s radiator for the extra week has depleted my brilliance…. We are past the series halfway mark, and I’m so fucking annoyed at show creator Ryan Murphy. He does not know how to tease with spoilers. He goes straight for the money shot by blabbing everrythang except for who is the next Supreme? Just ignore the internet until after the finale …But he did say ”Nobody has guessed who the Supreme is.” So does that mean we are WRONG thinking its Zoe or Misty? Every other witch has been named, so I am going to take a wild guess. Wouldn’t it be ironic if this female dominated series concluded with a male Supreme? #BibleBoy …Remember I was right about Hank… Just curse me out in comments below.
Episode 8 “The Sacred Taking” is titled after a real tradition that dates back to the Salem days. Sometimes in order to protect other witches, a witch is allowed the sacred act of committing suicide. Well Cordelia is in “kill mommie” mode, and she is convinced of the identity of the next Supreme. So Cordelia leads the girls in this The Sacred Taking ritual which allows for the next Supreme’s ascension. How do you convince selfish Fiona to selflessly commit suicide even though she is struggling with her ailing health? The plan is to convince Fiona to give up hope so that she will take her own life. In spite of her cancer the Supreme Witch Bitch ain’t going out like that because she has got some ghost dick to ride. She intends to spite them all.
Well something happens in this episode, and Cordelia realizes that Fiona is indeed the baddest & strongest witch in town. So is it a good idea to want to kill mommie when the witch hunter is on his way to kill your Coven? Fiona is no dummy, and she is usually a step ahead of everyone else. Watch out Cordelia. #MommieDearest
A dangerous enemy is trying to kill Misty at her swamp shack. Could it be someone from her hometown trying to kill her again, or is she also in the cross hairs of witch hunters? Well a panicked Misty goes to the Academy just in time after her Crepe Myrtle blooms.
After Queenie betrayed her Coven for Marie’s voodoo tribe, she makes a decision about where her loyalties are after a tense meeting with her Coven sisters…but she delivers a warning but to who? …And Delphine is living a different kind of hell now. Living for eternity underground is a cake walk compared to being tortured by Marie over and over again; to feel the pain repeatedly and yet not die. But what’s more tragic for Delphine is that she’s still wearing that Forever 21 studded tiger sweatshirt.
We finally get to see Luke who hasn’t been seen since the zombie attack. Unfortunately for Luke his mother Joan decided to severely punish him for his involvement with the girls. However Nan wants to help him but it ends in tragedy. I don’t know what’s happening, but if they kill Nan off like they did in season 1 there will be hell to pay by me and the fans.
And what about Spalding? Hmmm. On AHS dead doesn’t mean your gig is over. He’ still around and has stuff to do. He better clean that house up before Stevie Nicks arrives at the Academy. She will appear in 2 episodes starting after the holiday break on Jan 8….Watch Episode 8 of American Horror Story: Coven on Wed 10pm EST on FX. You can stalk me on twitter @Urethra_F .
