Woman Taken by the Wind: The Story of the Coven

If you are keen on watching the FX channel than I am sure you have been seeing the third season of American Horror Story: The Coven. The plot revolves round the story of the witches. It touches on the Salem witch trials for the past 300 years and its legacy to the modern witches.. They are in danger as there’s a huntsman paid to kill all of them.

These young witches are in a school that’s teaching them to develop their powers and protect AHSCovenPosterthemselves. The plot thickens as the supreme (the most powerful witch of all), Fiona (Jessica Lange), arrives to manage the school and make sure everyone’s safety is taken care of. Fiona’s daughter, Cordelia (Sarah Paulson), teaches at the school.There is a continuing rivalry between the witches of Salem and the Voodoo practitioners of New Orleans, as well as a historic grudge between Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau (Angela Bassett) and socialite serial killer Delphine LaLaurie (Kathy Bates).

 

I have to say Kathy Bates plays her character well. According to FX, The primary theme of the season is oppression; mostly, the oppression of marginalized groups. There are other themes like witchcraft(of course), Voodoo, racism, and family, such as the relationships between mothers and daughters. The setting in in modern day New Orleans with flashbacks to the 1830s.

I am rooting for the appearance of Stevie Nicks which will be on episode #10. She is going to play herself as well as being a witch. Lily Rabe as Misty Day is a big fan of hers in the story and there’s an episode where Rhiannon is played several times as Missy talks about Nicks and her, being a true witch.  Here’s a fan edited video.

I have been following AHS since the first season. What I love about it is the emphasis on American Urban legends and also history of Witchcraft. There is also an ample amount of humor if you are paying attention to the dialogue mostly those fired between the character of Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates. I think Taissa Farmiga really shines in this genre. I am also a big fan of her older sister Vera. They’re both of Ukrainian descent which explains their fantastic eyes.

Jessica Lange is really good in playing badass characters. There are very few actresses in her league.

Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night
And wouldn’t you love to love her?
Takes to the sky like a bird in flight
And who will be her lover?

All your life you’ve never seen a woman
Taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?

She is like a cat in the dark
And then she is the darkness
She rules her life like a fine skylark
And when the sky is starless

All your life you’ve never seen a woman
Taken by the wind
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?
Will you ever win?

Taken by the wind

Will you ever win? (2)
