American Horror Story – Season 3 Episode 12 – Go To Hell Review

Image

This year’s Coven has already been a living hell, but somehow, everything was enhanced this episode.

The 7 wonders are forms of advanced magic that a chosen witch has to perform to become the next Supreme. These ‘wonders’ include mind control, pyrokinesis, transmutation (like teleporting), etc.

It ‘s clear that for a while the girls have been fighting to become the next Supreme, however, nothing was really certain until now. With Marie gone missing after her fatal fall down the stairs, Queenie becomes suspicious and starts searching for her. When she confronts Fiona, all she gets is a forceful invitation to perform the seven wonders so that Fiona can kill them one by one until she finds the Supreme. After taking a visit to the underworld, Queenie has a chat with Papa Legba who explains to her that Marie is now dead. After these revelations, Queenie finds Madame Lalaurie, living in her old home. It’s like night at the museum but with torture.

It was nice to see Queenie trying to offer redemption to Mme Lalaurie, however, everyone has their limits and it was goodbye to that nasty little party host.

Zoe is back, after being in Florida I guess she realised that she can’t just walk away from who she is. It was only a matter of time before she came back, this was surprisingly quick but not unexpected.

Cordelia’s power kicks in when she tries on her grandmother’s necklace. This triggers a series of events that can only be described as BLOODY. She has a premonition and sees a massacre with Fiona being the guilty party, so she does the logical thing that any blind woman should do: Go see the Axe Man and warn him about Fiona.

This episode was all about Cordelia, and it was excellent to see her taking control of the situation and helping find some answers. Her good intentions paid off because she found Misty and got her back to the witch house. Misty kicked Madison’s ass for pretty much burying her alive. It was epic because Madison is an insufferable witch and also because Misty used no magic, just her fists.

A heartbroken Axe Man killed Fiona, and subsequently attempted to kill the witches. Big Mistake and bad timing because the witches stabbed him with kitchen knives. Repeatedly is an underestimation.

Madame Lalaurie and Marie are sharing the same hell. One is in a cage watching the other torture her daughters, one by one. Papa Legba did say that everybody pays.

With Fiona gone, Cordelia decides that all the witches will be tested for the seven wonders. A new Supreme needs to rise and there is no time to waste or episodes left.. tik tok…

Notes

When Fiona got killed and she was saying ‘I had a cat’ and then splat!

Queenie offering a second chance to Mme Lalaurie was a great moment for the show, it proved that even through all the hate she had found a bit of good. Too late now.

Papa Legba is amazing and I am proud they gave Lance Reddick a chance to portray something else than an FBI agent. He truly does an excellent job.

Fiona we will miss you and your decadence
