Philosophical exploration of maternal challenges and a challenging, extraordinary turn for Kathy Bates make "Burn, Witch. Burn!" an excellent -- albeit weird -- hour of television.

Critic Reviews for Burn, Witch. Burn!

Perhaps we're burnt out on zombies at the moment, but we thought this episode was the least interesting of the season so far.

What's most impressive about this episode is the fact that the pure awesomeness of Zoe's chainsaw counter-attack on the voodoo zombies occurs simultaneously to a touching plot concerning the relationships that the mothers and daughters share.

We've already got some major forces in play and huge questions to be answered.

This week's episode of American Horror Story: Coven took a step in the right direction by reminding us that Zoe, for all her faults, can be proactive.

I don't know about you guys, but for my money, this was the first episode of Coven that had actual perturbing moments.

Every week, I feel as if I profess a new scene to be the best of this show's run, and this week is no different.

If we're being real, "Burn, Witch. Burn!" was a perfect hour of television and I will enter a street fight with anybody who disagrees. I will use all the uppercuts and kick slaps and roundhouse punch-cartwheels in order to defend this episode's honor.

All in all, a pretty excellent episode, if a bit nutty. But hey, it wouldn't be American Horror Story if it didn't go off the rails every now and again. Great stuff. This may well end up being my favorite season yet.

Creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk suffer few indulgences of sentimentality, even of the kind that agrees with their probable politics, and that refreshing tendency is on full display in this week's episode.
