The Truth Behind the Aliens in Asylum
Murphy: For me, [aliens] were always an obvious metaphor for God. It fit very easily into the world of a Catholic sanitarium asylum.
It ALL makes sense:
Alma & Grace sort of resembled the Virgin Mary being that they did not get pregnant by Kit directly, but by the aliens (God).
No wonder why their children were so smart & destined for greatness. They gave birth to little Jesus’!
Grace was right, those children are special.
Kit also dies from pancreatic cancer and is taken away by the aliens, but now we know he was truly taken away by God.
The Sacred Taking
Queenie roams the slums of New Orleans falling in the midst of trouble. Madison & Zoe casually roam in and coincidentally bump in to Queenie:
Boo-freakin-hoo. You switched teams because girls were mean to you?
Turns out Queenie is on a mission to retreive a dark heart for Marie Laveau.
Voodoo? Witchcraft? This town ain’t big enough for the two of us. War is coming and you’re gonna lose.
We see Fiona painfully battling through cancer but has found a way to escape from the pain:
They say love is the best medicine.
We’re transposed to the Axeman & Fiona (I really like their relationship)
I won’t give anyone the satisfaction of killing myself. I’ll stay alive just to spite them.
The ‘Kill Fiona Committee' commences.
Clearly, all mothers this season seem to be off their rocker as Luke’s mother mixes Clorox & water and has him do an in-home colonoscopy to cleanse himself from Nan & the other witches.
I love how Ryan always toys with religion & their institutions.
We hear a knock on the door & it’s Misty flustered:
You have to save me.
We are brought back to Misty’s shack where we are re-introduced to a gruesome looking Myrtle who claims to hear a man in the woods with a gun circling the shack (Hank …)
Cordelia greets Misty with open arms & allows her to be a part of the house. Misty asks if her friend can move in as well:
Cordelia: I thought I’d never see you again.
Myrtle: Poor choice of words girl.
Myrtle decides to throw out that Misty is the next Supreme but I highly doubt it. The Supreme card is being thrown around recklessly!
Kyle is entertained on the laptop playing what looks to be Leap Frog.
Why can’t he watch porn and jerk off like every other guy?
The Sacred Taking- the greatest sacrifice a Supreme can make, which results in her killing herself.
Madison knows Fiona would never do such a thing:
Not without a push.
So the tormenting begins. Madison is twirling around Fiona’s room:
Poor FiFi is right as Fiona has had enough of everything & gives in with the help of Myrtle. Fiona admits that she finally belongs to someone & she truly loves him.
You will die the same way you lived your life, alone & disappointed by everyone.
Fiona pops a handful of pills and is awaken on the other side by Spalding who knocks some sense in to her because he clearly sees ‘everything’
Lies you swallow more easily than those pills.
& she’s back.
Queenie gives LaLaurie a burger so there must be some soft spot for her in her heart.
You put me in here, you can get me out.
COME ON QUEENIE! SHE LEARNED HOW TO COOK CHICKEN POT PIE FOR YOU!
Marie & LaLaurie bicker causing Marie to chop off her hand.
Nan runs to Luke’s house because she’s pissed off at the other witches for not believing she could be the next Supreme. Hank is waiting outside in his car. She manages to open the door with her mind and finds Luke tied up in a closet. She attempts to escape with him but crazy mom is in the way & Hank decides to attack killing crazy mom & shooting Luke. I do not see love in Nan’s near future.
& THEN NAN MUMBLES SOMETHING THAT CONTAINS THE WORD SUPREME!
Fiona & the rest of the witches are settling their problems in the middle of the crime scene where she puts Misty to the test to revive Luke’s mother, which she does.
Leap Frog seemed to work as Kyle manages to tell Zoe:
I .. Love .. You
& poor Madison is standing outside crying so I’m assuming she can feel again.
The doorbell rings with a box on the floor. Fiona brings it in and low and behold it is LaLaurie’s severed head.
& the search for the Supreme continues.
I wasn’t necessarily satisfied with this episode. The Supreme is being tossed around like nothing! What exactly is Myrtle’s significance to this season? She doesn’t really add or take away from it.
- What more can Marie do to LaLaurie because she doesn’t die?
- Do you think Hank will kill all the witches?
- Will Queenie return to the Coven & save LaLaurie?
- Will there be tension between Madison, Zoe & Kyle?
- Cordelia can finally see next episode. What are our thoughts on that?

The Man Behind The Shower Curtain
Here is a fun quick read as we wait for Wednesday to approach.
Have you ever checked behind your shower curtain before using the bathroom? What do you even do if someone is there?
