‘American Horror Story: Coven’ finale review: Who is the Supreme?

After a season full of confusion, “American Horror Story: Coven” chose to take a very different approach with its finale Wednesday night: Keeping the story simple and to the point. The question that we long wondered finally had an answer: Who was the next Supreme?

The episode started with a series of tests to prove this very thing, where we watched the witches perform one task after another after another following a pretty cool introduction from Stevie Nicks. It seemed like the choice was between Queenie, Zoe, Madison, and Misty, but it didn’t take too long for that to get narrowed down. Misty failed to return from Hell, Zoe was killed while having some “fun” outside, and Queenie failed to revive her. This is where things started to get interesting.

Going into the finale, the only possible Supreme candidate that really made any sense was Cordelia. She was the witch who was suppressed by her mother all her life, and the one with the true potential to use her powers for good. Kyle destroyed Madison, and then our new Supreme revived Zoe and started that next chapter of the Coven’s future. She outed the witches to the news, and by Myrtle’s own suggestion, she decided to make her next big move in sentencing her to death for her crimes.

But of course, Cordelia’s reign was not so easy. Fiona rose from the ashes in the closing minutes and proved that this was all an elaborate plan of hers to try to find out the Supreme’s identity. The moment she was dispatched and we had that terrible moment in Hell (the worst part of the episode), we got back to the good stuff: Seeing the future of the Coven warmly in Cordelia’s hands. It was a nice, subtle way to end a complicated season and we can only imagine what the whole season could have been like had it been like this: Grade: A-.
