'American Horror Story: Coven' Episode 3 Recap: Nothing's Better Than The Real Thing
The obvious focus of "American Horror Story" this season is aging and the passage of time; nearly every character is grappling with some element of growing older, whether it's the young 'uns figuring out their magical powers and appropriate path in life, or the older generation trying to cling to whatever youth they have left. This episode in particular zooms in on "replacements" -- being replaced by someone younger, faster, or better. Portraits of the witches and Supremes of times past line the walls of Robichaux Academy, a blatant reminder of what has been and more importantly, who's been. In a couple of beautifully shot sequences, we witness Fiona Jessica Lange drinking with the portraits, conversing with them, or chastising them. She's absolutely haunted by Annaleigh, the woman who was acting Supreme in her youth. We're even treated to a delicious flashback of Fiona as a young adult, impatient and precocious as always -- so much so that she slits Annaleigh's throat. She can't wait to be Supreme, and kills her mentor in order to ascend the throne.
As Supreme Witch of the Salem Descendants, the glamorous Fiona Goode lives a life of luxury, traveling the world and hobnobbing with celebrities. Now, she returns home to Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies in New Orleans with plans to rule her coven again and repair her relationship with her estranged daughter. Fiona is obsessed with eternal youth and despises her aging body. Though her powers allow her to drain the life of her victims, she has yet to achieve her goals. She has a strained relationship with her daughter, who sees her as an intrusion to her attempt at education at the academy.
The latest episode of the FX miniseries also introduces some witchy politics, considering most of the witches seem to do as they please, the arrival of the Council of Witchcraft at Miss Robichaux's Academy was a shock. So why exactly did the Council of Witchcraft make a surprise visit to New Orleans, well because they heard about the young Madison's death and they suspect that Fiona was the one behind her slit throat. And despite them being completely and totally right, the allegations are still surprising to the other witches of Coven. Even more surprising and quite fun was the Council's interrogation of Fiona, while I truly adore the Supreme witch and her "baddest witch in town" attitude, she was surely looking for trouble after murdering the young witch in cold blood. And don't forget, this is not the first witch Fiona has eliminated, she is quite the master of slitting throats. In episode 3, "The Replacements" fans were treated to frightfully fun flashback to Fiona in The young and brash witch knew that she was set to become the next Supreme, but instead of obtaining the coveted title with grace, Fiona took it.
Sadistic Sister Jude and her caning may be gone, but Fiona Goode, Lange's new character, comes with her own warning: "The only thing you have to be afraid of is me," she threatens in the trailer, before sending teenage girls flying with a flick of her wrist. Airborne adolescents aside, Lange believes that the tone of Season 3 is lighter than last year's Asylum, which took place in the s at the horrifying Briarcliff Mental Institution. - Even if it takes the remainder of the season, the regime of Fiona Goode is coming to a close. Whether she is finally struck down by her vengeful rival Marie Laveau, succumbs painfully to cancer, or skips town with her recently corporeal, ax-murdering saxophonist beau, the glamorous witch played by Jessica Lange will eventually lose her power to a younger, stronger sorceress who will take her place as the new Supreme.
But power is addicting, and, as she grew into an uncommon beauty, her hunger for more drove her to deviant tendencies. Living… back in New Orleans, after the burning of a witch from her coven a group of witches at the stake forces her to confront the cares she had long ignored. That pulled her back from the glamour of Los Angeles, where the hunt for power, beauty, and pleasure had taken her. Profession… the Supreme Witch. Fiona would rather live in the lap of luxury, leaving the dirty work to her daughter, Cordelia, whom she installed as Headmistress of the Academy. That had freed Fiona to use her unique powers to sustain her lifestyle — often at the greatest price to others.
