This is it, folks! American Horror Story: Coven comes to close tonight with "The Seven Wonders," and a Supreme will finally be named. Might I suggest that we pass the time until the episode begins by trading theories about how it might be? Based on what's transpired over the last 12 episodes, it really could be anyone: All of the younger candidates have exhibited multiple powers, and given Ryan Murphy's penchant for insane plot switcheroos, I'm not so sure we can rule out the elders, either. Heck, at this point I'm pretty certain we shouldn't even exclude the people who died last week (or before). Which, according to this behind-the-scenes promo, is basically the point:

So you do you think it's going to be? Who do you WANT it to be? Personally, I'd like to see Nan come back and take the title—but something about that idea just seems too simple. 

Anyway, here are a few points and predictions to consider before you vote, from the comments of last week's review:



...and on that note, it's time to vote! Which witch will it be? Select your magical being of choice in the poll below—it'll close at 10pm Eastern, right as the episode begins its first airing—and once the Seven Wonders have concluded, we'll see whether or not our Supreme-forecasting abilities are worth a damn. 



Who'd you vote for, and why? Share your best theories in the comments!

Ooooo!!! Love this question!! I am as invested in this as I was the past Presidential election! #wahwah As much as I would like to see Zoe or Queenie take this ish, I am going with my fellow commenters in predicting Mutually Assured Mass Destruction i.e. they all wipe each other out and it's the least likely left i.e. Spaulding and Marie Jr. Either way: SQUEE!!! Can't wait!!!!

I said it last week and I'll say it again... All of the girls will become supreme's and it will be a Supreme Coven.

I have to stop reading Price's recaps right before bed, especially the AHS ones, because they cause the most twisted dreams. Price, please stop writing about raccoons. Anyway, I watched the penultimate episode late last night and remembered to read Price's recap right before bed again. I woke up from my Pricemare at some ungodly hour of the night/morning with this thought in my mind... maybe it's not any of the girls? Another thought about someone saying that since the season opened with Zoe it has to be her and then....

...I realized there was something else at the beginning of the season too as I slowly started waking up. The whole story line about Cordelia trying to have a child, the Voodoo pregnancy spell, etc. My crazy Price-fueled thought was this: what if Cordelia has become pregnant after all and the new Supreme is actually her unborn baby? A lot of people on the show are getting fitting endings - Fiona being literally stabbed in the back for instance - maybe Cordelia's doomed to be the daughter of one Supreme and the mother of another? I'm thinking that if this isn't the twist ending - all that blood and battle among the witches and Fiona for nothing - maybe it should have been the ending. :-)

I was thinking along the same lines. She goes through that whole ritual trying to get pregnant and it didn't work but I remember I think it was Marie saying there could be side effects. Maybe that finally comes into play and Murphy was waiting till the last episode to bring it back.

"A new Supreme will be chosen Coven’s Jan. 29 finale, which reveals Fiona’s (Jessica Lange) successor, will unfold a tad differently from previous AHS conclusions. ”It usually is a very nihilistic ending. But this year is different because it’s an incredibly dark-comedy ending, which I like,” says Murphy, who teases, ”Nobody has guessed who the Supreme is.”

-- ”Nobody has guessed who the Supreme is.” --

There is no next Supreme. There won't be a Coven, by the end of the finale either. All that will be left, will be the few witches spread, throughout the world. The best and brightest, of the next generation will be gone. Then they will all slowly die off. This is an extinction level event!

Good! It's become clear to me over the episodes that maybe the witch hunters had the right idea. Myrtle nailed it when she observed that "homicidal maniac" was a description that could be applied to any of them.

I really want Cordelia to be the next supreme, but I still think the Supreme will be taking over Fiona's form by performing Transmutation. This way the prophecy will be fulfilled, and isn't Myrtle so desperate to become her!?

Paul McCartney will be the next supreme.

I'm thinking it will be somebody entirely out of left field, like the fire starter that got shot.

I think Zoe would be the best choice. She is pretty stable and dedicated to the group. However, I really don't think she is going to be picked. Personally I would want Cordelia to be picked. She has earned it. The lady stabbed out her own eyes for the sake of the Coven.

They will slaughter each other and the show will end in a cliffhanger as Diana Ross and her big fabulous hair, will storm through the doors and tell all of them to stop in the name of love.

I think a dark horse could be Delphine. She's always been sort of a wannabe, and she did manage to kill Marie.

AHS tends to kill off all or almost all characters at finales. So the only character alive capable in doing it is Madison - killing all and become the next supreme. I'll go with that prediction.

I think the line of the witches will end. However, has anybody ever said that there are only the witches in the Coven? There must be at least a few somewhere else in the world...?

I believe that all witches of the younger generation are in the Coven. That's what the Academy and Council are for. Finding young witches.

Well , they don't do a hell of their jobs since Cordelia's husband was killing all the soon-to-become-part-of-the-Coven.

what if they all turn out to be the supreme so they end up with 7 supremes and 7 covens?

It's Cordelia. Trust me. < the whole thing about her losing her powers is misdirection. Also she's Fiona's daughter, it's brilliant. XD

My vote is on Cordelia but also on none of them. It might just be somebody that hasn't been introduced yet.

If it's not Fiona (from her coming back and killing everyone) then it may be all of them. If its neither of those and actually is a surviving member of the coven, then it'll prb be Zoe or Cordelia.

I think it is going to be the Bull man.

Honestly I am not sure I care. By the end of every season there is no redeemable characters left. The closest this season would be Misty Day. But she was dumb enough to let Madison get the drop on her so I am not even sure about that.

I really think it has always been Cordelia. She developed a power no one has and it is not in the 7 wonderers.

Cordelia's vision could be considered Divination. Which is a Seven Wonder and so far the only one none of the others have exhibited, at least not on screen.

What about:
- Zoe (she found the book and the spell in it just by looking at them)
- Misty (she can sense some things)
- Queenie (she could hear Marie Laveau after she was chopped to pieces)

That skills could be considered Divination

Valid points. Those could also be considered divination. I was looking too closely at the more literal definition. I stand corrected.

All of them.

Here is my reasoning why...do we all remember how season one and two ended? There was sort of an open ended conclusion to season one where our main family who were good people making horrible decisions ended up happy and the evil people were left on the outside. Season two, I mean other than what was with the aliens and what exactly did happen to Kit, he and Lana basically had a justice filled sort of ending and Jude was even able to be happy. So, even though it is pretty obvious, I think the point of the Coven is the Coven's importance and that that continue on in whatever format. As a result, my options are Zoe, Myrtle and Cordelia. I like Misty but I kind of feel like her and Queenie, and even Nan if she comes back, seem more me focused (not that that is bad, but no really leadership material) and you'd think the powers that be would not be too keen on having another Supreme be like that after having Fiona for like the last thirty years. I still keep wondering about Madison and how Misty wasn't really sure how well bringing her back had worked since she was dead for so long. Like if that is going to come bite her in the ass at some point, like if she tries the out of body experience, some of the forces from beyond the grave grab her.

I really hope that Fiona will be back (somehow) on the finale! Her character is awesome, i want her to stay the supreme ..

I'm really worried that the finale won't live up to anybody's expectations... Everyone has all these wild theories, and AHS is not very good with "shocking" revelations.
Not to mention, that everyone admires one character more than the others and will be disappointed if she wasn't the Supreme... So almost everyone will be disappointed.
This show shouldn't be taken too seriously... It's entertaining but it isn't to be analyzed!

If AHS isn't going to pull a number on us and reveal Fiona planned it to get them to attempt the 7 Wonders, I think its safe to bet on the underdogs Zoe or Cordelia. I see Queenie dying trying Pyrokinesis, Madison getting stuck in hell. Whatever the case, I'm not ready.

Honestly, I don't really care.

Perhaps that's because it's the nature of the series that it's thirteen episodes in and then you're gone. It's hard to care about what happens to these people when you'll never find out what happens to them afterward. Like the end of season 1. You care about the baby, there's a big ominous build-up, and then nothing.

Also, nobody really seems to deserve or have earned being the Supreme. Madison, no. Nan (if she comes back) and Queenie, ended up killing people. Maybe for good reason, but still killers without much self-control. Zoe seems to be deserving, but any zombie-chainsaw promise she had, has been frittered away (I'm leaving! I'm coming back!). And Lily seems to be too naive to lead the Coven, and not particularly interested in leading anyway.

Cordelia hasn't displayed any of the Wonders, so she seems to be out of the running. Unless they bring back Fiona, that leaves Myrtle, who probably deserves it the most being wise, helpful, and leaderly.

The real question is, what's the point of being a Supreme? The show has kind of glossed over the whole "Are there any other witches?" since the two Council members bought it. Aren't other witches interested to know what happened to the two dead Council members? It seems like whoever becomes Supreme will be leading six witches with no future generations in sight. Doesn't seem worth the angst.

(Whatever happened to the Cordelia/pregnancy subplot, anyway?)

Shhh! That's my theory as to the next supreme! ;-)

My theory: the whole season has discussed the theme of extinction. And last time I checked an entire sect of Witch Hunter's just recently went extinct. Also, last week they mentioned that without a Supreme, a Coven cannot survive. Just throwing this out there, but maybe they're going to all end up killing each other and hence producing their own downfall! :) now THAT would be a twist :)

AHS has been pretty OK this season, but shouldnt we have more eps with the new supreme? what is the point of having a season leading up to the new supreme if we dont see how she is in the long run.

cant wait for this crap season to be over. how can they botch a storyline about witchcraft so much. theres no horror, nothing creepy or mysterious. its almost like a bad comedy spoof when compared to the other seasons.

Before the season began, the executive producers actually said they wanted to make the season more comedic. So at least a part of the comedy is intentional.

I've gone this long without speculating so i'm not going to form an opinion now. Here's some thoughts though.

In the very first episode, the girls scoffed at the idea of Cordelia being the supreme and since then Cordelia became increasingly useless. She redeemed herself by opening Axeman's eyes and stabbing her own but it would be nice for her to climb to the top, show everyone she's not as worthless, useless and wilfully blind as everyone thinks.

When Maddison returned from the dead, she no longer had a heart condition. Maybe Fiona is all too aware of that trick. Then again, everyone else returned to their original body and as Misty Day put it, that's now 'gator shit. Nan was whisked off to what sounded like Voodoo Heaven and she wasn't in the vision so maybe these two are gone for good.

I think Maddison would be too similar to Fiona and I think the show would rather give us a different kind of supreme. She'll undoubtedly fight for it though. Let's be honest, Fiona doesn't need a gun to kill Cordelia and it's Maddison who has a little pea shooter in her bag.

I've always been sceptical about Misty being the new supreme. She's cool enough just as the kooky outsider and it's not like she needs the supreme's power, she can "do" people with her hands.

Zoe and Queenie have good chances, although Zoe is perhaps too obvious a choice. They both have their unique gifts (human voodoo doll, killer vagina and when she interrupted Marie Laveau's zombie mojo) but I don't know if that helps or hurts their chances.

Finally, Myrtle. She spent her whole life in Fiona's shadow and now that she doesn't care about being the supreme it probably will be her. That kinda has "life" written all over it.

I am so ready for this finale <3

I'm betting on Cordelia's vision coming true and Fiona killing everyone. But I'm hoping on Nan coming back to life and claiming her rightful position as Supreme.

I've tried to watch this season, I really did. But I just couldn't you know. Too bornig, weird but not in the way Asylum was weird. I cannot understand how makers could ruin such a good concept - witchcraft, voodoo etc.... damn:/
I hope thw next season will be at least as good as The Asylum or better. Bless:)!

I think he problem with Asylum was that they tried to do too much, (demons, aliens, psychos, Nazis, mutants, Catholics, etc) in too short of a time span, and the last few episodes were a mad dash to complete and wrap everything that it felt like so much got left behind just to wrap with the Bloodyface storyline. Still, here's hoping next season we get to see Ian McShane again!!

Yes, second season completely lost the plot after the Nazi died. But worse, it was so miserable, bleak, and sufficating - with the idea that humans were the real monsters, scarier than devils or mutants or aliens - it was just a torture to watch eventually. It was like a snuff film. This season has had a lot more plot, fun character iterations, and yes a little bit of comedy. It (mostly) hasn't been torture porn.

Anyone but Zoe and I'll be happy.
Zoe has done nothing this season, other than whine and kill Spalding... Did she kill him? I don't remember.
I think it will be Cordelia, just from theories I have seen floating throughout the Internet and that is absolutley fine with me.

I'm hoping for some kind of a twist, for example that all the witches merge into one Super Witch Supreme à la Power Rangers. Or maybe nobody becomes Supreme; everyone are left dead after a power struggle.

It definately should be Zoe! She didn't survive season 1, pretty sure she's the one destined to come on top this season and run the coven with Kyle- Evan Peters which also be a payoff for season 1
Reply

As much as I really really want it to be Nan, logic suggests Maddison, Nan, Misty and Myrtle can't be the supreme as its been suggested Fiona will recover as soon as the supreme is dead. Given she has never shown any sign of recovery it would have to be someone who hasn't died which leave Cordelia, Zoe, Stevie and Queenie (Assuming Queenie didn't actually die when she got shot, she did say "Not even a silver bullet can kill me").

I kind of think that everyone will get killed during the seven wonders and then Fiona shows up being the last one standing. The ULTIMATE Supreme

I hope it is all an elaborate scheme of Fiona's to get all the potential next supremes to die and she can remain the supreme and without a successor. Then she will become healthy again.

That was her plan before the gators got her. But I think she's still around. No one actually saw her die. I agree she will be the next and probably final supreme.

What if there isn't just ONE supreme anymore??? Given the significant decline in number of witches as of late, and that all of the girls seem to be quickly developing most of the 7 wonder abilities when so many of the older witches have only a few meager ones, whose to say it will be just one this time around??
