"Fearful Pranks Ensue" maintains the momentum of previous episodes while further developing emerging narrative threads -- and taking full advantage of an outstanding cast.
There is a stark difference between a mother weeping over her lynched son and an undead Confederate soldier rising from the tomb and disemboweling a racist. One of those things is an artless callback to one of the darkest undercurrent in American history
The conceit of having a truly horrifying person be horrified in turn is a very compelling one, and Bates is one of the few actresses who could credibly convey Delphine's contrition for mistreating Queenie.
It suggests that the series has quite a bit more in store for Bassett, which partially assuages my fears that she'd be little more than window dressing for a four-to-five episode arc.
American Horror Story takes that subtext and turns it into the lyrics to a Lady Gaga song. And I mean that as a huge compliment.
It's the questions that keep us coming back, after all. No complaints here, even if this was the least exciting episode so far this season.
American Horror Story have consistently been among the best of the bunch. Even though there were a bit too many cliffhangers leaving me wanting more, American Horror Story: Coven matches previous seasons' level of crazy, perhaps even exceeding it.
It seems a full on war has started, and I can't wait to see what this bewitching show has in store.
Once you've made that commitment and squeeze your eyes shut to block out some of the leaps in logic... it's a really fun ride...Tonight's episode seemed like a step in the right direction, though, and I think that's largely because Zoe was hardly in it.
"Fearful Pranks Ensue" definitely kept up the insane momentum of the previous three episodes.
A pretty decent episode all around. Looking forward to seeing what kind of damage the zombies do, and whether or not Myrtle gets the burned-at-the-stake treatment.
As of 'Fearful Pranks Ensue,' the show is still on its way to equalizing Fiona's pursuit of youth and vitality, and the other threads that have so far been introduced.
Halloween episodes of American Horror Story have never failed to be - shall we say - eventful.
