American Horror Story: Coven Season 3 Review “The Sacred Taking”

On the latest episode of “American Horror Story: Coven,” which was transitional by necessity, the ladies of the Academy banded together in order to properly defeat the nefarious Fiona, thus kicking into motion the new Supreme in the process, whose identity remains a mystery, though most everyone thinks they know who it is. To do so, they perform the titular ritual known as “The Sacred Taking,”which has only been done three times in witch history, notably during the Salem Witch Trials, when then-Supreme Prudence Mather, weakened to the point of death by consumption, sacrificed herself to complete the process of setting into motion the new Supreme.

So, Delia comes up with a plan to trick Fiona into taking her own life, by way of showing her that her efforts to destroy her perceived enemies have failed miserably. Enter a taunting Madison and Myrtle, both alive and well, albeit only by the grace of likely Supreme front-runner Misty Day. Of course, Fiona doesn’t know that, and between that and her cancer taking hold and not wanting to wither away in front of her beloved Axeman, she falls for the ruse and takes a handful of pills to go out in the way of the other MM, Marilyn Monroe.
