American Horror Story: Coven Season 3 Review “The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks”

Well, those who thought they’d tune in to “American Horror Story: Coven” for perhaps the first time in order to catch “The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks,” and who were expecting an enchanted gypsy-land of witches and fairies or what have you were certainly in for a rude awakening on this episode. Those of us who worried that they might tone things down in the presence of such a superstar need not have, because even by this show’s standards this was pretty out there stuff.

We started with multiple implied baby sacrifices, with yet another on the chopping block to go next, and ended with the intentional drowning of a young woman with Down Syndrome who was perhaps the last truly likable character on the show, save Cordelia, maybe. If the hope was to recruit new viewers, it was a big fail, I’m guessing, but fans of the show wouldn’t have it any other way. This is the show we signed up for, and as ever, it’s not the good that triumphs over evil, it’s the good that gets trampled as evil stomps all over them on their way to their next dirty deed.
