"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

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.

Everything may not have come together, but boy, will I miss these gals.

There was a lot to chew on in this finale, fellow viewers.

Season three lost its way when it tried to be all things to all cast members, and the most it could elicit from me was a minor shrug.

Just one question: Was there any actual horror to be found here?

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.

In many ways, this episode drove home the real underlying theme, which was a retelling of the Christ story, with witches.

Still, those points aside, 'The Seven Wonders' - if taken as a single episode, intent on delivering the one promise the season had alluded to from the beginning - is a fairly entertaining way to send the Coven on its merry way.

There were still a few head-scratching moments, but essentially "Seven Wonders" put a bow on the season - with the few remaining villains getting their just deserts.
