“American Horror Story: Coven” creator Ryan Murphy has dropped some wonderful teases of what’s to come for everyone’s favorite witches in a recent interview with EW. Here’s what we can look forward to:
On Myrtle’s resurgence at the hands of Misty: “Myrtle has to have vengeance on that Fiona. She is the one of all of them who is the most invested in saving that coven and doing the right thing, so she comes back in a major way. … We will see a quite unhinged, dangerous Myrtle. Fiona is just making enemies at every turn. So that is all building to a head.”
On Cordelia’s new power: “It’s sort of this sixth sense that she has where she is able to see the truth. In many ways, it’s the most powerful gift of all. Her mother was always on her for having the wimpiest of witch powers — her biology and her botany — but now she has this great, true witchy-witchy talent, so I think Cordelia might be the most talented of them all. Maybe in line to be a Supreme — who knows?”
On Fiona’s love affair with the Axeman: “If you look at the character of Fiona, the only person I think she could be with was someone as dangerous and wild and sexual as she was. That was the jumping-off point. Then, I’ve always been very interested in the Axeman mystery of New Orleans. Marie Laveaux, Madame LaLaurie, and The Axeman all have this crazy thing in common where they had this reign of terror and then they disappeared. Nobody could really prove that they died. So the next episode is about that person and that myth … Danny Huston and Jessica Lange have ended up being the Macbeths.”
“American Horror Story: Coven” airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
