WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD! Do NOT continue reading if you are not caught up on “American Horror Story: Coven.”
“American Horror Story” has no problem killing characters off … or bringing them back from the dead! A handful of deaths already occurred in “Coven,” but don’t say good-bye just yet to Madison. Actress Emma Roberts just tweeted a photo that has viewers reconsidering her death.
“Madison’s shoes today @bandofblondes @prada I think I’m in love! #ahscoven #studs #heels #gorgeous,” Roberts tweeted on Tuesday, Nov. 5, along with a photo.

Fans immediately grew excited over the possibility of Madison’s return, commenting on the photo with posts like, “Does this mean the b*tch is back! Omg” and “b*tch ain’t dead yet!”
“Coven” viewers will remember that Madison met a gruesome ending in episode 3. Fiona (Jessica Lange) believed the young witch to be the next Supreme and tried to pressure Madison into killing her -- just like Fiona did to the old Supreme, Anna Lee. When Madison refused, Fiona turned the blade and cut Madison’s throat … leaving her to bleed out on the floor of the Academy.
The following episode revealed that Fiona, like Misty Day (Lily Rabe), has the power to bring back the dead. However, instead of reviving Madison, Fiona told Spalding (Denis O’Hare) to take care of the situation. Spalding rolled up Madison’s body in the bloody carpet and took her away. But he didn’t bury her. By the end of episode 4, “Fearful Pranks Ensue,” fans discovered that Spalding had stripped Madison of her blood-covered clothing and had her propped up in her underwear and bra to have tea with his dolls.
Post episode 4, “American Horror Story” co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed to Entertainment Weekly that just because Madison is dead doesn’t mean she’s out of the picture. “Dead Madison is in many, many, many episodes,” he divulged. Murphy continued that what Spalding puts the dead witch through is “the most shocking thing we’ve ever done on this show.”
What exactly Spalding has in store for Madison is currently unknown, but we do have a couple spoilers regarding the upcoming fifth episode of “Coven.” In “Burn, Witch, Burn,” Madison’s fellow Academy classmates will be fighting off Marie Laveau’s zombies alongside Madame LaLaurie, Spalding and Luke. The attack will lead Zoe to end up unleashing a new magic -- something so powerful that it “turns the tide on the advancing zombie horde.”
Meanwhile, Cordelia will be dealing with the aftermath of her attack; Fiona will go head-to-head with Hank; and Myrtle wants Fiona to step down as Supreme and “turn over control to the Council” until a new Supreme manifests.
You can catch episode 5 of “American Horror Story: Coven” when it airs on FX on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 10 p.m.
