Well, somehow a period of time has passed, and we’re stood at the end of another series of American Horror Story.
There is a reason that this show is one of my favourite active programmes, and that’s largely based around its fresh originality. Which has been something that Coven has revelled in it. More than its two predecessors, it has spent most of its thirteen episodes grabbing the initiative with bizarre plot twists and shocking set pieces.
This post will focus on the finale itself, the long-awaited “Seven Wonders”.
Read one…(and mind the spoilers!)
Christmas is over, New Years has come and gone, and in their wake we’re all in a bit of a January rut. It’s clear what we need to lift us out; and here is American Horror Story back from its holiday, to supply just such a burst of manic and creative insanity.
The last episode, “Head”, was the best episode of the series so far, I thought. And given that this has been the best series of the show so far, that’s no small praise. But we’ve been here before. Coven started off incredibly strong, but drifted a little around the mid-point.
The question, then, is whether “The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks” can continue the pace which “Head” laid out.
