American Horror Story: Coven – Season 3, Episode 4: “Fearful Pranks Ensue”

AHS: Coven: Fearful Pranks Ensue

Ooh, those racist dudes messed with the wrong family.  Why were they hiding out in that barn?  Back in those days, stuff like that happened a lot and nothing was done.  Who were they hiding from?  Are those zombies in the “BRAINS!” sense?  They were physically attacking the bad guys but I’m not sure if I saw them eat anyone.

I guess Queenie got a little more than she bargained for when she asked Bastien to love her.  Why was Fiona so determined to save Queenie?  A few minutes earlier, she’d been all “Oops, I seem to have killed Madison.  Get rid of her.”  I fully expected Fiona to put her out of her misery instead of helping her.

What’s up with Cordelia’s husband other than he’s an asshole?  Is he an assassin?  The way he killed that girl (Kaylee?  Was that the actress that played the young Moira in the first season?) seemed professional.  He had a silencer.

When someone finally finds Alecia’s body, isn’t the fact that Zoe was running in and out of the house going to draw attention?  Did she ever find Kyle?  He disappeared and the next time we see her, she’s being interviewed by the Council.  Where did he go?

What’s Nan’s game?  Why did she call the Council directly about Madison and not go to Cordelia first?  If she was in the house at the time Madison died, does she know what happened?  She seems to be able to hear everyone no matter where they are in the house.

Cordelia really doesn’t have any of the cunning that Fiona does.  She just kept digging that hole deeper.  If Fiona hadn’t come in, Cordelia would have spilled everything she knew.  Maybe ask the Council why they’re there before you start running your mouth?

Leslie Jordan!  I love him.  His characters are always so bitchily funny.

Spalding cut out his own tongue so he wouldn’t be able to testify against Fiona?  Maybe he should have told her why first.  Frances Conroy was so great in the Council scene.  Maybe Myrtle should have bewitched Spalding’s hands before she questioned him.  Although, he told the truth so I guess she would’ve been pissed anyway.

Marie LeVeau is justifying a new war because of what Fiona did to Bastien but she’s really to blame.  Marie sent him to the school and he nearly killed one of the girls.  Yes, Fiona provoked Marie by sending Bastien’s head back to her (anyone else see the head blink?) but what did she think would happen?

If Misty Day shows up, can she heal the zombies?  If she can, does she restore their full health or would they just be alive corpses?  What I’m really saying, I guess, is can she reverse the decomposition?  And won’t Spalding crap his pants if Madison suddenly comes alive?

Favorite Lines:

  • “I so enjoy our talks.  Particularly since you lost your tongue.” — Fiona
  • “If she’s dead, it’s probably because she got wasted and offered the Grim Reaper a hand job or something.” — Queenie
  • “I’ve got a book of matches in my pocket and I’m just dying to light it.” — Myrtle
