Critic Reviews for Head

This would have been so much more interesting if it had unfolded just a little more organically, rather than the fits and starts of a typical Murphy joint.

Perhaps the worst part of this episode, and definitely one of the more deplorable aspects of this season in general, is the continued botching of their race material.

There were some satisfying twists and turns.

It never ceases to shock me how much this season has crammed into each episode, but I like it. Keep shocking me, show. Keep making me cry. Keep making me feel things in general. And above all else, keep giving us the gift of Angela Bassett.

This week's episode of American Horror Story: Coven steers the series into unexpected and retrospectively logical narrative and thematic directions.

I know I say this basically every week, but I am always stunned by the caliber of camp Ryan Murphy manages to achieve. The last five minutes of this episode was pure insane trash.

This war is getting real, queens. Grab your coffee, guns, and pillows, 'cause this is one bumpy broom.

As ever, some great dialogue throughout.

While the role that Hank has played was nominal at best, it raises an interesting question about the permanence of such things in the world that Coven has created.

The Hank storyline and his unexpected, violent turn on Laveau was very well done. The rest of "Head" felt undercooked though.
