WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD
Get ready for some more “American Horror Story: Coven” drama. The synopsis for episode 2, “Boy Parts,” is out and you can find out what will happen before the FX mini-series premieres on Oct. 9.
According to an episode description posted on Spoiler TV, “Boy Parts” will air on Oct. 16 and find Supreme Witch Fiona (Jessica Lange) helping Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) and Madison (Emma Roberts) “deal with a horrible tragedy.”
Meanwhile, Delphine LaLaurie (Kathy Bates) finds herself struggling to “adjust to modern life.” And Cordelia must face a “dark decision about her family.”
As we previously reported, the “Coven” premiere will introduce Zoe, a young girl who is “shattered to discover she possesses a strange genetic affliction tracing back to the dark days of Salem.” Her newfound knowledge will result in her being sent to Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies in New Orleans. But Robichaux’s Academy is far from your average school – it’s a place “devoted to safeguarding the few remaining descendants who share this unique bloodline.”
Fans of “American Horror Story” will have to wait to see what “horrible tragedy” awaits Zoe and Madison, but an important clue from the episode 2 synopsis is that Madame Delphine LaLaurie is “adjusting to modern life.”
For those that don’t recognize the name Delphine LaLaurie, she was a real-life serial killer who terrorized Louisiana in the 1800s. A fire in her French Quarter mansion in 1834 revealed that she kept numerous slaves locked up in a room. According to reports, LaLaurie’s slaves were found to be “horribly mutilated” – some strapped to tables, a man reportedly surgically transformed into a woman, a female mutilated to look like a human crab, and another with her arms mutilated and skin peeled off.
Kathy Bates as Madame LaLaurie was featured in the promo video for “American Horror Story: Coven,” but now it appears that her character won’t be featured in just flashbacks … but somehow risen from the dead.
