Critic Consensus: "The Seven Wonders" doesn't quite deliver the payoff viewers might have hoped for, but it does curb the season's downward slope with a decently entertaining and visually impressive finale.

Critic reviews for The Seven Wonders
Following in the footsteps of its predecessors, the American Horror Story: Coven finale ends things with a whimper before slinking off to hide behind the much stronger first half of the season. For what it's worth, it's a pretty looking whimper.
The whole finale felt entirely anti-climactic. They would have been better off ending the season with last week's episode, because it at least had some tension.
I guess all's well that ends well, even if the season was pretty uneven and didn't quite manage to deliver the feels or the wows I'd hoped.
It was obviously crazy and upsetting and moving: All the necessary ingredients of a post-climax epilogue, which was what this was.
The 45 minutes leading up to this conclusion only served to remind viewers of just how disastrously far this series slid downhill over the course of its last several episodes.
