'American Horror Story: Coven' Wrap-Up, Next Season's Setting is Revealed

Courtesy EW
Wednesday's episode of "American Horror Story: Coven" was brutal to say the least, but unfortunately, this third season is dwindling down. So what's in store for the final two episodes, titled "Go To Hell" and "The Seven Wonders?" Co-Creator, Ryan Murphy recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly and not only hinted at the end of "Coven" but also what he's been brewing up for the fourth installment of the FX series.

After joking about how Marie Laveau (Angela Bassett) may be immortal but still watches her figure by ordering a Diet Sprite, he revealed that she will be seen in the final episodes despite being Delphine's (Kathy Bates) latest victim.

EW: So Marie has been knocked unconscious. What can you say about what will happen to her?
Basically what she was going to do to Kathy Bates, which she did — Marie cut Delphine into many, many parts and threatened to scatter her around the city — Kathy does that same thing to Marie. Marie is still alive, but her body parts are scattered all over the city, perhaps never to be united again. The question in the next episode: Who can put this very glamorous Humpty Dumpty back together again?

EW: So will we see Angela Bassett as just a head?
No. You’ll see Angela Bassett again in the next episode, but that’s the question. It was always going to be Marie against Delphine. The next episode addresses what will become of this rivalry and who will win, ultimately. That’s really what it’s about.

Murphy also reveals that we haven't seen the last of Kyle and Zoe even though they fled to Epcot. Fiona and the Axeman aren't done with their murderous antics either.

EW: Will Fiona and The Axeman get a happy ending? Those don’t really happen on American Horror Story.
Well, the entire episode is really about, What is Fiona going to do? She said her plan: She’s going to identify the Supreme. Kill that Supreme. Guarantee herself another run of life and run away with The Axeman. So the next episode is about that, about Fiona and The Axeman and their deadly plan to kill everyone.

What about poor Misty encased in that tomb? Murphy says that what happens or happened to her will be addressed. Check out the full interview here.

One of the coolest reveals from Murphy is that he discussed his idea of the fourth AHS season.

Murphy gave EW the exclusive that, “It’s set in 1950. If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year. It’s a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before. Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent so I’m very excited!”

Little hints about the fourth installment are being deposited in the final episodes. Keep your second sight on high alert!

Be sure to "Go To Hell" on Wednesday, January 22 at 10 p.m. ET on FX. Here is the episode's synopsis:

A dying Fiona becomes even more desperate to find and destroy the new Supreme… but also wonders if she should give it up and just enjoy her final days. As the time approaches for the new Supreme to demonstrate the Seven Wonders, a dangerous ritual proving the Supreme’s ability to master seven magical powers, more than one of the remaining girls begin to manifest multiple new powers. But it’s Papa Legba who Queenie demonstrates her newest power to: the power to descend into Hell, and to return. Cordelia has a nightmarish vision that puts the Coven’s future in question, while another vision leads her to confront the Axeman with a hard truth. Meanwhile, Queenie confronts Madame LaLaurie, who has found a new sense of ghoulish purpose, and Zoe returns to claim her destiny. And more than one person must face the consequences their actions when multiple acts of bloody vengeance are carried out… one of which may bring about the rise of the new Supreme at last.
