This week on the season finale of American Horror Story: Coven a Stevie Nicks video starts playing, with her singing some song called Seven Wonders. This serves as the backdrop as we see Queenie, Madison, Misty, and Zoe preparing for the test of the seven wonders.
Myrtle and Cordelia oversee the tests. Cordelia explains that this may be the first time the seven wonders are used to name the new Supreme, not to confirm the incoming one. Fiona was supposed to find her replacement, but instead tried to kill anyone she thought might be the new Supreme.
The tests begin, and all four pass the first two. Misty is unable to return from Hell during the third test, and dies. This leaves Madison, Zoe, and Queenie. During the transmutation test, the three play a game of tag, finally having fun for the first time in forever. Cordelia warns them to be careful, and lo and behold, Zoe somehow ends up spiked on top of the fence.
Zoe is near death, and Queenie tries to bring her back to life, but is unable. I guess this means Queenie is out of the running for Supreme. Cordelia tries to guilt Madison into doing it, but Madison gives them an ultimatum – make her the Supreme or she’ll leave. Zoe is dead, and Madison doesn’t care. They all knew the risks going in.

Fiona delivers a quite uninspired eulogy for Nan, and Cordelia talks with Myrtle about again trying to get rid of Fiona. Queenie arrives with Delphine, who has been put back together. Everyone is surprised to see the both of them, as Queenie was believed to have died during the attack at the beauty parlor, and Marie had told Queenie to burn Delphine’s head.
Hank’s father has had his men arrange it so that it is never known that Hank was the shooter at the salon. He also wants to buy the coven off so that his company can recover. He vows to kill the witches after he gets what he wants.
The first part of this episode is a narrative by Delphine, which ends with her having a black handyman tied up in the attic room. She first discovered the joy of killing slaves when she first arrived in New Orleans. She has felt unfulfilled as of late, and figures that killing again will bring her vitality back.
Zoe uses her magic to find out that Fiona and Marie killed Nan in the tub. Madison has become jealous that Zoe fell in love with Kyle, and tries to hurt Zoe by seducing Kyle in front of her. Kyle refuses and says he loves Zoe. Madison is furious, and vows to take Kyle apart, since she was the one who put him together in the first place.

In 1961 New Orleans, a black boy is chased down by some angry white local men and hung in the woods. His mother works in Marie Laveau’s hair salon. As revenge, Laveau casts a spell, reanimating the dead, and releasing them on the murderers.
Spalding is shown having a creepy tea party in his room with a bunch of dolls when he hears some screaming. This is when he comes upon Fiona killing Madison. Fiona tells him it is her duty to stay vital, and that Spalding seems so much more wise without his tongue.
Fiona hears a crash and rushes outside to find Queenie bleeding and near death. The minotaur (I’ve been incorrectly calling him a mantaur – sorry folks, too much wrestling as kid) is still in the greenhouse. We’ll find out later that Fiona beheaded the minotaur, and sends the head to Marie Laveau.
Fiona wakes up Cordelia so they can help Queenie. They are too busy arguing about Marie Laveau, and Queenie passes out. Fiona breathes some breath into her, and Queenie regains consciousness. Fiona won’t let Cordelia call 911, telling her she needs to handle everything internally. They wouldn’t want a visit from The Council.
Zoe is still at Kyle’s house, trying to figure out what to do with him. She feels terrible about what he’s become. She makes him some food, and most likely laced it with rat poison. But when she comes back, Kyle is gone. On Halloween.

Fiona has a flashback to 1971. She is the Supreme apparent to the current Supreme, Anna-Lee. Anna-Lee feels that Fiona is too young and cocky to take the throne, and if she had her way, Fiona would never become the Supreme. Anna-Lee slaps Fiona, and Fiona slices her throat, killing her. A servant witnesses the murder, and as we come back to current time, he still works there. But Fiona implies that she cut out his tongue.
Zoe goes to see Kyle’s mom, who confesses to her that she was about to hang herself when Zoe called. Zoe tells her she will see Kyle again, and leaves, intent of bringing Kyle back to his mother.
Zoe returns to Misty and Kyle to see how is coming along. His wounds have healed a great deal, and it is clear that Misty has grown attached to Kyle. When Zoe says she wants to take him to his mother, Misty gets angry, saying Kyle is not ready. But Kyle clings to Zoe, so she takes him away. Misty is crying one second, and dancing to Stevie Nicks the next.

You may find this hard to believe but I’m actually looking forward to Scream 4. Sure, you could make the case that the franchise has seen better days or that the actors are not all that appealing anymore, but that doesn’t dampen my enthusiasm for the franchise.
To help you find the magic again we’ve got three new clips from the film to share with you today. In them we get a further look at the old gang from Westboro as well as at a few of the new, fresh faces voted most likely to be targets for our favorite ghost-faced killer.
If you’re not familiar with the Scream 4 story, here’s the scoop:
Sidney Prescott has been living the last few years of her life in relative silence. Now a guidance counselor for Woodsboro High School, her alma mater, she finally lives her life out of the media spotlight.
But with the discovery of a murdered student, Sidney Prescott’s world will once again be ripped apart by the reemergence of Ghost Face.
Check out the clips after the break. Scream 4 slashes its way into theaters on April 15th.

In addition to the recent casting of Adam Brody and Marley Shelton in Wes Craven’s Scream 4, we can also add one of our favorite actresses from one of our favorite shows: Alison Brie of NBC’s hit show Community. And we couldn’t be happier about it.
Brie joins a host of young acting talent lining up to be slashed in the Dimension Films reboot of the franchise including Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin, Nico Tortorella and Erik Knudsen. In addition, as we mentioned earlier, surviving original franchise stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox also will return for the film.
In the film Brie will play Rebecca, the ambitions person assistant to Campbell’s character who secretly envies her boss’ reluctant fame and fortune. Do we sense a catfight brewing? Perhaps.
Filming on Scream 4 recently began in Michigan with the intent of an April 15th, 2011 release. You can bet we’ll be following this one closely.
The cast of Wes Craven’s upcoming fourth installment of the hugely successful Scream franchise has just grown by one more. Emma Roberts (Valentine’s Day, Hotel For Dogs and the upcoming It’s Kind of a Funny Story) will join returning original cast members Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette in Scream 4, which is also being scripted by original Scream writer Kevin Williamson.
Roberts will play “Jill,” one of the heroines in the new film and probably help solve yet another series of grisly murders perpetrated on the citizens of Woodsboro. Poor citizens. Obviously, Roberts is thrilled at the news.
“I am so excited to be part of this ground-breaking franchise,” said Roberts. “As a huge fan of the previous films, I jumped at the opportunity to work with the original Scream team of Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson. It’s the perfect opportunity for me to do something completely different than I’ve ever done before. With Bob Weinstein and Dimension, and the return of original cast members Neve, Courteney and David, I have no doubt Scream 4 will live up to fan expectations.”
Producer/director Wes Craven added, “I’m absolutely delighted that Emma will be joining the cast of Scream 4. Her talent, beauty and range will add immensely to the sophistication, intensity and fun of the SCREAM franchise as it returns to the screen once more.”
Well, there you go. if he doesn’t know, nobody does. Shooting on the film will begin in June in Michigan. Scream 4 hits theatres in April 15, 2011.
UPDATE: Looks like we can add Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin to the cast now also. Dimension Films just confirmed their casting.
I liked this movie quite a bit when I first saw it in 2003, and it was called Love, Actually. This is nothing but a watered down and americanized version of the British movie, and it is mired in mediocrity. Just think of this as the ugly stepsister of Love, Actually.
Despite a massive ensemble cast (Jessica Alba, Kathy Bates, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Anne Hathaway, Taylor Swift, Taylor Lautner, Julia Roberts, Shirley MacClaine, Ashton Kutcher, Queen Latifah, Emma Roberts, and George Lopez) the film lacks any real zip, and for a film about Valentine’s Day, it lacks heart. Don’t let all that star power fool you.
There are a myriad of storylines woven throughout the movie, which takes place on Valentine’s Day, in Los Angeles. Most of the principals are connected to one another in one way or another, and their connections are slowly revealed throughout the movie. Some of the stories work quite well, and others just don’t work at all.
Ashton Kutcher plays Reed, a florist who proposes to his less than thrilled girlfriend Morley (Jessica Alba.) His best friend Julia (Jennifer Garner) is giddy over her new boyfriend (Patrick Dempsey), who is actually a two timing married man. Her best friend Kara (Jessica Biel) is the desperate and lonely career girl with no one to spend Valentine’s Day with.
