'American Horror Story: Coven' RECAP - 'The Axeman Cometh' [Spoilers]


Even though this was an episode with a criminal lack of Jessica Lange, tonight's episode, "The Axeman Cometh," still managed to bring together enough plot points to significantly raise the stakes.

Tonight's episode featured not one, but TWO returns from the dead, plus a huge reveal about one character's true motivations and their unexpected partnership.

'American Horror Story: Coven' RECAP - 'Burn, Witch. Burn!' [Spoilers]


One could argue that Ryan Murphy has a lot in common with Lady Gaga. For example, both of them are better when they stick to keeping it fun and not getting wrapped up in overindulgent symbolism. Tonight's episode may have beat viewers over the head with a bit of mother-daughter drama, but it was also uncharacteristically cohesive. This season's many storylines are staying masterfully woven together. It's a problem that plagued last year's messy Asylum installment. Glad to see the creative team is keeping things tight this time around.

'American Horror Story: Coven' Recap - 'The Replacements' [Spoilers]


American Horror Story is often warped, but the most recent episode, "The Replacements," may be the most twisted installment in the show's history. 

We'll save the juiciest moments for behind the jump, but suffice to say we did not see most of that coming (and some of it we wish we didn't see at all). Also, has Kathy Bates taken up Jessica Lange's Horror Story diet? (It's that one where you only eat scenery, but you can have as much as you want.) That scene of her watching President Obama on television was hilariously over the top.

'Glee' Creator Ryan Murphy Rethinking the Show's Ending, Which Will Happen Next Year

MurphyGlee will end after its next (sixth) season, creator Ryan Murphy told a crowd at the Paley Center last night, Variety reports:

“The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn’s story. I always knew that, I always knew how it would end. I knew what the last shot was, he was in it. I knew what the last line was, she said it to him. So when a tragedy like that happens you sort of have to pause and figure out what you want to do, so we’re figuring that out now.”

'American Horror Story: Coven' Recap - 'Boy Parts' [Spoilers]


One of the most exciting elements of American Horror Story: Coven is the incredible cast. More specifically, it's the opportunity for the heavy-hitting lead females to clash in spectacularly fabulous fashion. The second episode, titled "Boy Parts," definitely delivered on that promise. 

We got to see Angela Bassett go toe-to-toe with Kathy Bates; Bates face a menacing Jessica Lange; and, most deliciously, Lange and Bassett throw epic, epic shade.

See how it all went down, AFTER THE JUMP ...
