Fiona is in bad shape. She is in constant pain, can’t keep food down, and her hair is falling out in chunks. Cordelia, meanwhile, is trying to hold the remnants of her coven together. Queenie, now working for Marie Laveau, is dead to her, and she won’t let the others slip through the cracks, especially now that Madison is back. She is preparing for war, both against Marie and her mother.
American Horror Story: Coven
Two weeks ago, American Horror Story: Coven introduced a new villain into a season filled with villains (or, at best, anti-heroes). The Axeman. Like Delphine Lalaurie and Marie Laveau, the Axeman is based on a real serial killer that haunted New Orleans early in the century.
Zoe doesn’t really know what to do with Kyle. So she comes at him with a gun. Kyle wrests it away from her, but then points it at himself.
In 1919, a serial killer stalked the women of New Orleans. Dubbed the Axe Man - not just for his manner of killing but because he plays saxophone - he killed eight women and terrorized the city.
If you are going to divine fortunes, may as well have some “real” witches on your side, right?
We open on Halloween night, 1833. Madame Lalaurie is holding a masquerade ball and a suitor named Jacques shows up for her eldest daughter, Borquita. She tests his mettle by taking him into her “chamber of horrors.”
A few months ago, we told you about the real-life woman, Madame Lalaurie, on whom Kathy Bates’s role in American Horror Story: Coven is based. But she isn’t the only specter of the past. In the show, her mortal enemy, Marie Laveau, was also based on a very famous New Orleans legend.
The coven elders show up to interrogate Fiona and Cordelia about Madison's disappearance; and the uneasy peace between the witch factions crumbles.
The coven is getting new neighbors: Joan Ramsay and her son Luke. Joan is a religious zealot who is offended when she sees the girls watching Luke unpack boxes. Nan and Madison later bring over a welcome cake. Nan is sweet as can be, but Madison really sluts it up and doesn’t veil her flirting.
Madison and Zoe play Dr. Frankenstein to create the perfect boy.
