American Horror Story: Coven

American Horror Story continues this evening and there’s only a few episodes left of the season.

The episode kicks off with a flashback to 1830 when Madame Delphine LaLaurie is terrorising the town and her black slaves.

We get an insight into how LaLaurie come to love blood, torture and pain. As we saw at the beginning of the season, Madame LaLaurie loved to smear blood across her face at night and in the morning, but how did she come to start doing that? The flashbacks provide us with some clues.

In another scene, and a rather lengthy monologue from LaLaurie, she brings the past to the present in some way, but to find out exactly how, you’ll have to watch tonight’s episode.

The sole focus of tonight’s episode is protecting the coven and there’s a few ways in which different characters are trying to do exactly that.

One way is that Fiona and Marie Laveau have a meeting with the witch hunting corporation and it’s the latter’s decision to call a truce. But will it happen peacefully or will it all end in complete disaster?

Cordelia also takes matters into her own hands on tonight’s episode, and she does something VERY drastic in a bid to protect the coven. It’s all very eye opening.

Elsewhere, some very familiar faces are back on tonight’s episode including Madame LaLaurie, Queenie and Spalding, although the latter is still dead.

Madame LaLaurie has also had enough of being bossed around, being told what to do and being walked all over, and her and Spalding work together, but what on? What are they planning to do?

One face that we don’t see return this evening, sadly, is that of Misty Day and we don’t know whether she will be back either. Who knows?

The characters bid farewell to Nan this evening, but it’s only a matter of time before Zoe finds out what happened to Nan and who killed her.

There’s some very dark scenes on tonight’s show, one of which involves Madame LaLaurie and some food. It’s hilarious. Another great scene is between Spalding and LaLaurie in which she takes something that she believes is magic, but it quite clearly isn’t.

But, who is trying to escape the coven? Who is trying to get away as quickly as they can? Also, which little piggy went to market? Watch tonight’s ep and let me know…

It’s safe to say that Fiona and Marie are the fiercest witch bitches in town and I can’t wait to see how they work together in the remaining episodes. Tonight’s  episode is very fast-paced and epic by all proportions. It’s not to be missed…

American Horror Story: Coven continues this evening at 10/9c on FX.
