EPISODE:

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: "Protect the Coven" satisfyingly sets the table for the season finale with a suitably gross installment whose extra plot point makes its hard-to-follow storyline even more confusing.

Critic Reviews for Protect the Coven

If we were the types to give out letter grades, this episode - and the season overall, in fact - would get a big, fat F.

When the show is operating at such a high rate of speed, it's often hard to stop and appreciate everything that's going on.

After last week's boring, plodding mess of an episode, American Horror Story: Coven returned with some ultra-violence to spice up the final half of the season and make up for Stevie Nicks being Stevie Nicks.

The plot at this point is generally incomprehensible, and character motivations are almost nonexistent.

I have to hand it to Murphy and Falchuk for never letting LaLaurie become fully rehabilitated, despite Queenie's best efforts

"Protect the Coven" is not the first episode of Coven to drop a huge unwieldy plot bomb on us, but it's so disappointing this late in the game because it distances us from the characters at what should be a juncture of pivotal emotional understanding.

If you love Myrtle Snow, bad people looking out for their own interests, good people sacrificing for a greater good, and if you hate consistent story arcs, this is the episode of American Horror Story: Coven for you.

Stevie Nicks may have departed for the time being, but there are still plenty of unhindered incantations flying about.

I hated the poo-eating and also the slave torture, but the rest was so overwhelmingly good that it's like who even cares? I don't have a lot more to say about it, it's all hyperbole from here on out. Best best best. Best.

I'm glad they took a deep breath before the big battle that is now inevitable. Of course, that's a relative term for this show.
