Six Things to Know About 'American Horror Story: Coven'

I am quite impressed with the first episode of American Horror Story: Coven. It is a far more sophisticated start to the season than any of the seasons before - but that’s not to say that it lacks any of the violence, gore, sex, or shocks that fans have come to expect from the series. I am anticipating a top-notch year with Coven. Here are six things to whet your appetite for the season premiere, October 9th on FX. (Warning! Minor spoilers ahead!)
