And so the third American Horror Story has come to an end. The final episode of Coven crowned a new Supreme and significantly increased the season’s already-impressive body count. Co-creator Ryan Murphy tells EW’s Tim Stack that he’s already working on the fourth iteration of AHS — not to mention making plans for a fifth. And why not? Coven was the highest rated edition of the series yet. It also expanded the AHS repertory, with Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett devouring city-sized scenery in precisely the kind of larger-than-life roles they haven’t been getting from movies: You imagine that pretty much every actress of a certain age would kill for a sit-down with Murphy. Coven proved the long-term health of the horror-anthology experiment. READ FULL STORY

American Horror Story: Coven concludes Wednesday night with an episode that promises to bring some closure to the season’s central question: Who will be the next Supreme? It was a question that haunted Jessica Lange’s Fiona, the reigning Supreme and onscreen incarnation of the last 40 years of female power. Dying of cancer, Fiona could feel her life energy flowing into the younger generation. She thought that she could cheat death by killing the next Supreme; at one point, she decided it was safer just to kill everybody. But circumstances changed quite a bit in last week’s episode. (Suffice it to say, this post will be spoiler central for all 12 episodes of Coven so far.)
Now, all the witches left alive will attempt to complete the Seven Wonders, the rite of passage that either kills you or makes you strongest. As the recapper of Coven, I will attempt to guess the identity of the Supreme; as the recapper of Coven, I realize the intrinsic futility of my hypothesis, since much of the appeal of Coven is how frequently it flips the script (and then sets that script on fire and then throws that burning script into an open tank of gasoline).

Sarah Paulson is having a huge day. Just nominated for a SAG Award for her role in the ensemble of 12 Years a Slave, she’ll also see action on the small screen during tonight’s winter finale of American Horror Story: Coven.
Though Paulson remained cryptic about the episode, she did tease that, as her character Cordelia, “I get my sight back [and] I have two different eyes.” Perhaps she’ll finally use those eyes to see through her witch hunter husband Hank (Josh Hamilton). Promises Paulson, “You learn more about Hank and why [he's betrayed her].”
Stopping in to take EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test, Paulson admitted that she will be utterly starstruck if she ever meets Emma Thompson. Considering Thompson is a fellow nominee for her brilliant turn as as Mary Poppins scribe P.L. Travers in Saving Mr. Banks, Paulson better steady herself for a major A-list encounter come Jan. 18.
In the meanwhile, you can click through to learn some of the actress’s other totems, including ’80s sitcoms and the part for which she lied she’d auditioned. READ FULL STORY

Take a look at that photo. What more evidence do you need that the leading ladies of American Horror Story: Coven — Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, and Angela Bassett — are having a freaking blast? Take Bassett’s voodoo queen Marie Laveau: When she’s not having sex with a minotaur (R.I.P.), Laveau gets to luxuriate on a throne made of bones in the back room of her hair salon and proclaim things like “She done messed with the wrong weeeetch.” Meanwhile, Bates tears through Madame LaLaurie’s vitriolic speeches like a raptor. “I love going to work,” she admits. “Every scene has something exciting in it for me to do, and part of the fun, too, is reading every new script. I never know what’s coming.” Adds Lange, It’s been wonderful to be able to play humor — to have somebody as sharp-witted [as Fiona].” This week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story takes you behind the scenes — and they’re some pretty fabulous and freaky scenes, at that — at one of television’s biggest breakout hit of the season, American Horror Story.
