American Horror Story: Coven ended on Wednesday January 29, they revealed the new Supreme and four witches met their fate during “The Seven Wonders” finale.
The episode starts out with Stevie Nicks performing the Fleetwood Mac song Seven Wonders as the four young witches, Misty (Lily Rabe), Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), Madison (Emma Roberts) and Queenie (Gaboury Sidibe), readied themselves to see who would be the next Supreme.
The first test is telekinesis to which all the girls pass. The next test is concilium or mind control, during this test Madison, makes Kyle (Evan Peters) kiss her and lick her boot. Zoe then gains control and makes Kyle kiss her. Madison then makes Kyle strangle Zoe. Cordelia (Sarah Paulson) intervenes to stop them.
The third test involves the girls going into the nether world. They must return before sun up or they will die and stay trapped in their own personal hell. The first of the girls to return is Queenie who found herself back at the chicken shack.
Next to return is Madison who says, “I was stuck on a network musical, a live version of The Sound of Music. I wasn’t even the lead! I was Liesl.”
Zoe returns and says her own hell was breaking up with Kyle over and over again. At this point all but three of the girls managed to return. In Misty’s hell, she was back to school where she had to dissect a live frog repeatedly. Time ran out for Misty and she turned to ashes.
Then there were three.
The girls turn the next test, transmutation, into a game of tag. During this, Zoe is impaled on top of the gate.
This leads to the next test, vitalum vitalis, and they must revive something dead. Queenie tries to bring back Zoe but fails indicating she is not the next Supreme. Cordelia tells Madison to bring back Zoe but Madison refuses. Instead, Madison kills a fly and brings it back to life. Myrtle (Frances Conroy) tells Madison, “If you refuse this you don’t deserve to be Supreme.”
Madison says that Zoe “lost, fair and square” and they can “either crown me or kiss my a–!”
Hopeless Cordelia says, “Maybe we deserve to die out.” Myrtle tells Cordelia she “must perform the Seven Wonders.” Cordelia begins and finishes the first tests with ease. She then faces off with Madison during the divination test where they must find hidden objects in the house belonging to past Supremes. This comes easy for Cordelia but not Madison. Angry, Madison storms off telling the girls that she will expose them to TMZ in Hollywood.
Madison begins packing her belongings and Kyle interrupts her and kills her for not bringing back Zoe. During this, Cordelia brings Zoe back to life, becomes the new Supreme, and regains her sight.
Cordelia then gives an interview to the media where she talks about the Academy and witches. She gives an open invitation to those young women with powers to go to Miss Robichaux’s Academy.
Myrtle then tells Cordelia that she must burn her at the stake for the crime she has committed against her fellow Council members. As Myrtle burns she screams, “Balenciaga!”
Cordelia asks Zoe and Queenie to be part of her new council. Before opening the doors, Cordelia must take care of one more thing, Fiona. Fiona faked her death with the Axeman because she wanted to kill the next Supreme. The two reconcile and Fiona dies in Cordelia’s arms. Fiona goes to her own personal hell in the cabin with the Axeman.
The show ends with Cordelia, Queenie and Zoe welcoming the new special girls to the academy. One girl asks, “What’s a Supreme?” To which Queenie replies, “You’re looking at her.”
