Classic characters returning, along with a peek back at Murder House and a Roanoke Easter egg, make "Boy Wonder" an episode of heightened returns -- not to mention fantastical gore and camp.
Flash cut to one breathtaking shot of the Murder House (that sound you hear is every hardcore AHS fan in the universe, squealing in ecstatic unison).
The Roanoke Easter egg leaves only three cycles left for Apocalypse to cross over with: Asylum, Freak Show and Cult.
It's a welcome relief from the heaviness of the season so far, and more of a tonal callback than any of the witchy resurrections.
"Boy Wonder" written by John J. Gray set up the final wheels that when in motion let the Coven transcend back to American Horror Story Season 1: Murder House seamlessly.
Respectable levels of gore.
Even for a season all about intertwined references, this week went above and beyond when it came to fan service - but its campy tone ensured that everything landed just right.
Carefully crafting within the episode through deconstructed time, "Boy Wonder" is the episode American Horror Story: Coven fans have been waiting for, setting up the perfect return for Murder House.
Coven fans will get a bit of a warm feeling seeing that they brought back the old movie picture frames to explain the coven's history.
American Horror Story: Apocalypse's brewing battle of the hexes -- sorry, sexes -- reached new heights.
It's still unclear who will ultimately end up on top, but things are starting to get real for the witches, warlocks, and demons alike in Boy Wonder.
The dialog pushes through a lot of exposition, but it's done efficiently and in an entertaining fashion. Certainly, there's more gender politics involved this week, but it works.
Thanks to these flashbacks, we know more about Michael Langdon's evil nature and Cordelia's budding plan to defeat him.
