FX’s American Horror Story: Coven continued to bring all out creepiness and inappropriateness in ‘The Replacements,’ an episode that dug deep into the relationships between parents and their children, and concluded with the swift end to one character’s life — for now, at least. With a new episode tonight, you can watch the American Horror Story: Coven episode 4 ‘Fearful Pranks Ensue’ online streaming on FX free via the links presented below.
Episode 3 began with Fiona having a dream flashback to when she was younger and more or less in her prime. Back then he was extremely sexually active and her power led to her being named the new Supreme. Those were the good old days, and unfortunately here and now in the present, Fiona has become irrelevant in her older age and a potentially new Supreme is starting to unknowingly make her ascension to the top. That’s something Fiona just can’t stomach.
Bad goes to worse for Fiona when she visits a plastic surgeon to have some gruesome work done and learns that her immune system can’t handle the surgery. In short she’s slowly dying, and there’s no fixing what her body can’t handle, and certainly no more sex with men not being attracted to her anymore. This enrages Fiona even more and sets her on a course to cross paths with her likely replacement.
Meanwhile Fiona’s daughter Cordelia is encountering her own bad news. Cordelia is told by her fertility doctor that she cannot have a baby. Rather than consult mom, Cordelia heads off to meet with Marie Laveau, her mom’s enemy, in search of a known fertility spell. Laveau has the spell and begins to share it through a bizarre ceremony, but then stops short of completing by admitting that she can’t do it knowing Cordelia’s mom is her sworn enemy. Cordelia can’t afford it, either, and has terrible credit.
The students at the witch school have been getting into trouble. Luke’s mom makes it a point to tell Fiona about what’s going on, and Fiona picks up on a little fact: Madison was able to set a fire with her mind. This is the type of skill the Supreme would have, and it’s becoming clearer and clearer that Madison is the chosen one and will replace Fiona in the very near future.
Fiona sort of confronts Madison about her “gifts” and asks her if she knew she was special. They would eventually end up in a bar where Fiona sees Madison as a younger version of herself. In what at first seemed like a ploy to end it all, Fiona asks Madison to take her knife and end her life so she can become the new Supreme. What really happens is Fiona slits Madison’s throat in the same manner she did of the previous Supreme, terminating the threat to replace her. Or did she?
Franken-Kyle is still around and finally got to meet back up with his grief-stricken mother. As only American Horror Story would do, the two have an intimate reunion that delves into gross territory and then he violently kills her with a trophy. Yay for Kyle, though Zoe knows that her “creation” is now a loose cannon and will need to be controlled.
The synopsis for tonight’s new episode of FX’s American Horror Story: Coven reads, “Fiona’s choices rattle a decades long truce between the Salem witches and Marie Laveau. The Council of Witchcraft pays a surprise visit to the Academy with disturbing allegations.”
