    My favorite thing about this show is that it really blurs the lines between good and evil. For example I know Delphine is an awful person, but I felt bad for her being betrayed by her one friend. It brings to mind thoughts of redemption and our jail systems. She was locked way for 180 years and when she was released she was a changed person. Yes she was still racist but even that faded and she tried to change. Didn't she pay for her crimes?moreless
  • So Marie has been genociding the women of the other coven all along!

    So Mairie is responsible for there being so few witches? She signed the treaty and spit on it at the same time. What a liar and a bigot. She is just as bad as Delphine in her own way. Its too bad Angela Basset overacts like that, though. She is too much like Calypso from Pirates of the Carribean. I thought she was a better actress then that. Guess not. But Its still fun to hate Marie. Of course Fiona is so self centered that she doesn't even notice that there are witches disappearing on her watch. I can't decide which of the two of them i hate its sure is fun hating them!!!!moreless

    • Madison: I am a Millennial. Generation Y. born between the birth of AIDS and 9/11, give or take. They call us "the Global Generation." We are known for our entitlement and narcissism. Some say it's because we're the first generation where every kid gets a trophy just for showing up. Others think it's because social media allows us to post every time we fart or have a sandwich for all the world to see. But ti seems that our one defining trait is a numbness to the world, an indifference to suffering. I know I did anything I could to not feel. Sex, drugs, booze. Just take away the pain. Take away my mother and my asshole father. and the press, and all the boys I loved who wouldn't love me back.. Hell, I was gang raped, and two days later I was back in class like nothing happened. I mean, that must have hurt like hell, right? Most people never get over stuff like that, and I was, like, "Let's go for Jamba juice." I would give everything I have or will ever have just to feel pain again. To hurt.

    • Delphine: It's this century. It still does perplex me so.
      Queenie: You think I'm any less perplexed? I dragged my ass all the way here from Detroit to be with my, quote, "sister witches." And instead I'm sitting in a fast-food parking lot at 3 in the morning with an immortal racist. How'd that happen?

    • The Axeman: "The reason for living was to get ready to stay dead a long time."
      Fiona: Faulkner.
      The Axeman: As I Lay Dying.
      Fiona: I get it. You're not just any old broke-down sax man, you're a college-educated one.
      The Axeman: I've led a... solitary life.

    • The Axeman: Is the bourbon smooth enough? Women don't usually like a harsh whiskey.
      Fiona: Well, never assume anything about me. My taste in whiskey... or men.

    • The Axeman: The joke was they always watched the bass player. But they should have watched my fingers... on the keys... my body in perfect synchronization… an extension of my instrument... no effort at all, just one with hit. The way my lips and my tongue wrapped around my instrument was... impeccable. My embouchure... that's how I calibrate, hit those clear, high, notes.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Queenie: Yeah, but you do, Miss Daisy, all the time.
      Referencing the 1989 movie Driving Miss Daisy, based on the play by Alfred Uhry. An elderly Jewish woman living in Atlanta, Georgia, hires a black chauffeur when she is no longer able to drive for herself. The movie explores racism in the South in the 1960s.
