“American Horror Story: Coven” returns tonight with the season three penultimate episode, “Go to Hell.” Earlier today, Jan. 22, the “American Horror Story” Facebook page posted the following teaser quote:
“The seven wonders, magic so advanced, each pushes the boundaries. Perform them all successfully and you are the next Supreme.”
The question has been nagging at us for the entire season: Who is the next Supreme? Who will pass the seven wonders test? Could it be Zoe?
It's obvious the next Supreme has been hiding in plain sight. Fiona (Jessica Lange) is desperate for the answers and she and her axe-wielding beau are determined to go on a killing spree to eliminate all of her potential successors. At this late stage, the action becomes all about who will be left standing in the end.
But, what about young lovers Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) and Kyle (Evan Peters)? They ran away on Myrtle’s (Frances Conroy) advice last week. Have they truly escaped the terror awaiting the Coven? Will Zoe and Kyle find happily ever after?
“American Horror Story” co-creator Ryan Murphy addressed the fate of the fan-favorite couple in a Jan. 16 “EW” interview saying, “They are in the next episode. We see what happens when they go to Epcot. They’re going to Epcot. I’m absolutely obsessed with Myrtle giving them her jar of jewelry.”
So, they’re going to Disney World, Mom! That doesn’t necessarily mean they will have fun, or even get to stay. We can’t help but share Myrtle’s hope for young love when the Coven is threatened and faces pure extinction. Plus, Kyle and Zoe are just so sweet together. They are both kind at the core and truly deserve good things.
But, this is “American Horror Story,” and good things rarely happen …
Fans first fell in love with Taissa Farmiga and Evan Peters’ onscreen chemistry as troubled teen lovers Violet and Tate in “American Horror Story’s” debut season, “Murder House.”
They’ve undoubtedly rekindled that spark this season, though they’ve endured their share of trouble from the meddlesome, jealous and self-absorbed Madison, who is played by Peters’ real life love, Emma Roberts.
Only a little time left to see if love can truly conquer all in “Coven.”
“American Horror Story: Coven” airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
