WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD! DON'T continue reading if you haven't watched episode 6, “The Axeman Cometh.”
Every episode of “American Horror Story: Coven” exposes new twists and turns and episode 6 was no different. With the introduction of season 3’s “Bloody Face” – The Axeman – “Coven” is gearing up to drop another deadly romance that puts the witches at risk.
For those that missed “The Axeman Cometh” on Wednesday, Nov. 13, the episode introduced the Axeman, a serial killer who terrorized the city of New Orleans in 1919. He eventually met his match when he went head-to-head with the young coven of witches at Miss Robichaux’s, who killed him and trapped his spirit in the house. In modern day his spirit was accidentally released by Zoe, who attempted to use the spirit of the Axeman to find Madison.
With the help of Misty, Zoe was able to bring a very dead Madison back to life. But the young witches remain surrounded by threats – ailing Fiona, the psychotic and revenge bent Axeman, Cordelia’s witch hunter husband Hank, and anti-Salem witch Voodoo queen Marie Laveau.
So, what will happen in episode 7, “The Dead”? It’s time to welcome the highly speculated love triangle!
In a flashback at the beginning of the episode, “American Horror Story” viewers will get to see Kyle a year before his deadly run in with Madison. A synopsis for “The Dead” reveals that the flashback will show Kyle hanging with his friends and sharing “his dreams about leading a useful, helpful life.” But as fans know that dream of his took a slight detour.
In modern day a fresh-from-the-dead Madison will bond with Franken-Kyle over their death and revival. “One of them” (presumably Madison), “who lived a numbed life and is even more numbed now, is desperate to feel again … to feel anything at all … and is willing to go to extreme measures to make it happen,” the leaked synopsis teases. “Another” (believed to be Kyle), horrified by what he’s become, only wants to die and feel nothing anymore.”
Despite Kyle being drawn to Zoe, it’s speculated that he’ll find common ground with Madison – potentially leading to a love triangle between him and the two witches.
Meanwhile, Queenie bonds with Madame LaLaurie, but something the woman says leads Queenie to question the Coven and turn to “the only other place she feels she might belong” – Marie Laveau and her Voodoo. But after Hank was revealed to be working as a witch hunter for Marie Laveau … is Queenie safe?
Fiona finds herself in an equally dangerous relationship when she begins a “love affair” with the Axeman … who has “had his eye on her for a very, very long time.” Will Fiona be safe from the Axeman due to her love of jazz? Or is he drawn to the Supreme after watching her murderous ways over the years in the Academy?
While Fiona continues to make poor decisions, Cordelia will be making a “fateful decision about her mother” – and somehow Zoe gets drawn in. But that’s not all Zoe has on her plate. The young witch goes on a “fact-finding mission that leaves her thirsting for vengeance.”
Episode 7 of “American Horror Story: Coven” will air on FX on Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 10 p.m. Watch the promo video for “The Dead” below and let us know what you think will happen.
