On Wednesdays we always wear black, but this week everyone put on your most fashionable black mourning outfit & hat because we have Nan’s funeral to attend. All the witches plus Kyle say their LAST goodbye to the Good Witch that will be spending eternity in the Dark Otherside. The promo teaser for the funeral was darkly comedic, and we know Fiona & Marie don’t give a damn. Are they in same cemetery where Misty is trapped? If so this would be the best time for Misty to make a fuss in that crypt. Can I get a AMEN?
There will be a lot about Delphine in this episode; her past and her present. Last time we saw Delphine her head was propped up on a TV dinner table and getting educated on African-American history. I know we’ve speculated with all sorts of wild crazy scenarios, but her HEAD finally does get reattached to a torso, and we were all #CrazyWrong.
Episode 11 starts off with flashback to 1830, and Madame Delphine LaLaurie has just moved to New Orleans. She wasn’t always a torturing serial killing monster, and we will learn how she acquired her blood thirsty habit for cruelty. I expect some grotesque scenes so fair warning to you scurrdy cats.
Forward to the present day and Delphine is finding her circumstances more and more intolerable. She finds comfort by returning to her horrifying pastime of old habits that will make her existence bearable again. Will she start torturing again? She finds an unexpected ally and kindred spirit who offers her a chance at getting the one thing she truly wants. But who is this kindred spirit, and what does she want? Does she want revenge? Or does she does just want to die for good? Whatever happens please tell me Papa Legba is involved. #DevilsAdvocate
Cordelia plotted to kill Mommie Dearest once. Then the witch hunters brought them closer, and then tore them apart again. Nan’s death will lead Cordelia to once again realize that she needs to stop Fiona and protect the Coven. She is feeling powerless & useless so Cordelia makes a desperate sacrifice to gain the power she needs to protect the Coven from witch hunters & her mother. What does she do? Ryan Murphy said “Sarah had to do one of the most upsetting things she’s ever had to do on the show but it’s great. She’s really desperate to get that power back and what lengths will she go to do it?”
Zoe and Kyle figure out the truth about Nan’s death and Madison doesn’t care. She’s too busy being jealous & dangerous. Myrtle grants Zoe an unexpected gift that will help her and Kyle with their plans for justice but Zoe is not thrilled with this gift.
Fiona’s ghost lover continues to give her murderous advice, and they make plans for the future. I have to say so far I’m unimpressed with the Axeman. His storyline has done nothing but add to Fiona’s determination to stay alive. #LovesGhostDick. The writers have three episodes left for him to bring something interesting to the story, or otherwise the talents of Danny Huston have been underused.
Queenie is back, and we find out what happened to her. Even though she is very bitter Cordelia tries to regain her trust. Hmm. Why is she bitter? She’s the one that betrayed the Coven. Oh wait maybe it’s because Cordelia married and witch hunter, and she shot herself in the head to kill her husband after he shot her.
Since the FBI raid & media attention, The Corporation will be forced to cover their tracks, and Hank’s father Harrison will be planning a double cross. Double cross who? My only wild guess would be his right hand man David but he needs that guy right?
The title of this episode is “Protect the Coven”, and all the stories are about everyone’s different agenda for protecting the Coven. Fiona and Marie try to do it in a deadly face off against the witch hunters. Now this is what I’ve been waiting to see, some ass kicking witchery….Watch American Horror Story: Coven on Wednesday, 10 pm EST on FX.
