American Horror Story – Season 3 Episode 11 – Protect the Coven Review


Crazy just got crazier in New Orleans. American Horror Story only has one more episode to go before the end of season, and this one was no let down. When you think it can’t get any weirder and twisted, it just does. Boom!

This episode takes us straight to 1830, where we get to see a bit of Mme Lalaurie’s life before she was immortal. She kills a chicken for dinner, and from there it jumps straight to her killing and torturing a slave. These are tough scenes to watch, however when it comes to this show it is the norm. A lot of the first half of the episode is dedicated to seeing Lalaurie go from glitz and glamour to being a 24 hr slave to the witches of the coven. It’s not like she doesn’t deserve it though.


We say goodbye to Nan and hello again to Queenie, who is alive and kicking after receiving a bullet to the head. She is powerful, in mind and language because she made sure to give Cordelia a piece of her mind. It was an unexpected comeback considering that AHS comes second to Game of Thrones for dead people.

Zoe is determined to find out who killed Nan, so she makes a spell in the bathroom, with Luke in tow and discovers the truth. her and Luke are in love now, so Madison goes into her standard ‘bitch mode’ and ruin the day. She even dared to threaten Myrtle! Who would dare to threaten her? She’s like cotton candy!

The fight for Supreme is not helping the coven in any way. While Queenie and Madison keep claiming they’re ‘all that’, Cordelia was busy ripping out her own eyes to regain a so called ‘Second Sight’ and see any harm ahead. So yeah, a less senses more senses kinda thing. Lack of common sense in my opinion.

Spaulding is still around, as a ghost I suppose and he tricks Mme Lalaurie in the most fantastic and less horrific way ever. He makes her buy a doll in exchange for a potion to kill Marie, the voodoo queen. His answer? Benadryl. Yeah, let’s abuse the ignorance of this 19th century woman in exchange for a creepy doll. Only Spaulding I swear. His creepiness should be in a hall of fame for creeps.



Marie and Fiona are close. When I say close I mean they have mani-pedis together and they drink champagne as a pair. They both scare me to death, so having them already being buddies could terrify the Hulk. Those two witches went on a business meeting with those ‘hunters’ and ended up killing them. Well, Fiona made her killer boyfriend do it. Logistics. Except for the boss, she killed him with passion and determination. Her two best assets.Image


After the ‘Meet and Chop’ Marie celebrated with some cocktails, unaware that the Benadryl was reaching her system.

ImageMme Lalaurie stabbed her, in her ignorance and ended up being chased by a very angry, yet drugged voodoo queen. It was Spaulding who saved the day, smashed Marie in the head (with a doll, obviously) and told Lalaurie to bury her. To bury her well so she couldn’t get out. Imagine the boredom of immortality inside a coffin. Torture.

Spaulding did it all for a reason, because if you learn anything from being the help, is that you see everything and know everything.


Out of all the terrifying things that I thought could happen to that poor child, that is by far the worst!

Can’t wait to see what the final episode holds!


‘You flush my shit bitch’. OMG. I mean, are spoiled celebs really like this? People can’t be bothered to flush??

Queenie screaming at Cordelia was harsh. I mean, Cordelia might be naive, but she is a good hearted witch. Give her a chance.

Spaulding and Madame Lalaurie bonding while getting rid of the body was a great moment for the season. We get to understand the reasons behind their obsessions.

Orlando Zoe? Disney World!!!
