"The Replacements" focuses on the weird and the wonderful as it tackles taboos and a shocking death.
While AHS's horror tends to be violence-related, Coven conjured those moments in the most unexpected and unsettling ways. Like the incestuous Frankenstein abuse!
There's an unsubtle theme running throughout this season of American Horror Story: The idea that "witchcraft," as represented in Coven, is really just a metaphor for acting.
It's hard to recall an episode that explores the various realms of the sexual taboo with the feverish invention that "The Replacements" displays.
After two already-bonkers episodes, this latest installment ... upped the ante even further, giving us at least three murders and a chance for every actress to shine bright like a cigarette.
This week, the storyline most to my liking was Fiona's (Jessica Lange), whose struggle with the cruelties of aging and a gradual loss of power would ring true for third world dictators or Beverly Hills housewives.
"The Replacements" was a truly deranged hour of television and I could not be more grateful. I feel so alive!
The reveal that Madison was the next Supreme (in so far as we know), along [with] her shocking death, was the best thing Coven's done so far.
This was as weird to watch as it was to recap (and I assume to read).
This was a real button-pushing episode. Between whacking Nancy Drew and all the incest and bestiality, you have to wonder if Standards and Practices was asleep on the job for this one.
After a barely vital episode, American Horror Story: Coven came back this week guns blaring.
Now, for whatever reason, all the visual feats of derring-do seem to make watching the wildly campy and usually shocking material of the series a little easier to digest.
Bottom line: we're just loving the hell out of it right now, flaws and all.
