AMERICAN HORROR STORY - THE NEW SUPREME

Stop reading and don't scroll down if you don't want to know what's going to happen in American Horror Story Coven.

This season (the third) has been nonstop fun, less enigmatic than season I and much more focused than the scattershot season II. Finally the producers brought in other great actresses to serve as foils for the bravura acting skills of Jessica Lange. They all seem like they're having a ball shooting this show. The lesser-known actors have been doing stellar work as well.

Who will replace Fiona (Lange's character) as The Supreme (top witch) is the throughline of the season, and I've figured it out. [damn you, powers of deduction]

Nan


She enchanted the sexy neighbor boy (either when she first smiled at him from the balcony or when she mixed up a potion in the cake). She lit the curtains on fire and diverted attention from herself saying it was Madison (and she may have telekinetically flung the knife too). 

The Supreme has to manifest multiple powers and Nan is no dummy. She threw the acid into Cordelia's eyes probably to neutralize her not because she doesn't like her. She can read thoughts and feel presences so she knows Misty Day is out there and can heal her later.


Since she can hear spirits and read thoughts she knows she needs to play her cards close to her vest. She will move the chess pieces more skillfully than Lange's Fiona because she doesn't appear to be a threat and I expect a big showdown at the end where she either makes a truce with Angela Bassett's Marie Laveau or kills her too. 


You go Nan.
