“American Horror Story” giveth and “American Horror Story” taketh away. Season 3 of the FX mini-series, “Coven” premiered on Wednesday, Oct. 9 and introduced new characters. Unfortunately, episode 1, “Bitchcraft,” also killed off a few new characters.
Evan Peters has been with “American Horror Story” since it first began with the “L.A. Murder House.” Needless to say, viewers were shocked when the show killed off his character, Kyle, in a gruesome car accident, courtesy of scorned witch, Madison (Emma Roberts).
However, in true “American Horror Story” fashion, there's a twist -- Kyle isn’t dead for good.
On Sunday, Oct. 13, co-creator Ryan Murphy tweeted the following photo and caption: “Kyle has been a bad bad boy.”

[[nid:1424428]]As we previously reported, episode 2, “Boy Parts,” will find Supreme Witch Fiona (Jessica Lange) helping Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) and Madison “deal with a horrible tragedy.” What is the tragedy in question? A magic-induced car crash that killed seven fraternity brothers -- a majority of whom had taken turns raping a drugged Madison.
In episode 3, “The Replacements,” Zoe will be guilt ridden and trying to give Kyle his “old life back” --a la “Frankenstein.”
“Evan’s story kicks off in episode 2,” Murphy teased E! Online. “The big girl story is that Zoe and Madison go to the morgue. Taissa is obviously in love with Evan’s character, and they find out that the boys are badly, badly mangled and decapitated.”
According to Murphy, Emma Roberts character (who is Evan Peters real life girlfriend) will “build the perfect boyfriend” by taking Evans head and using “other parts that she desires.”
Using a spell, the girls will bring Franken-Kyle back from the dead, but the twist is that he won’t be speaking in the first seven episodes. “We had to do a lot with body language and mime,” Murphy explained. “I made him watch ‘Bride of Frankenstein’ several times.”
Since “American Horror Story: Coven” is still filming, it’s unknown if Ryan Murphy’s photo was taken recently or a shot from earlier filming. The blood Kyle is drenched in could be his own from the accident, or he could possibly become a Franken-killer by the end of the season.
