Taissa FarmigaThe sixth episode in our original series, Covering Coven, looks at last night's episode of American Horror Story, "The Axeman Cometh."

In this installment: Zoe, Queenie, and Nan make contact with a dark spirit trapped in the Academy. Cordelia’s new power brings on a heartbreaking revelation. 

Leading the conversation is Shock contributor Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) and she's joined by Sasha Capelli (@ActuallySasha) of 92.3 out of New York, Alexis Saarela (@AlexisSaarela), Allison Ullrich (@allisonannetx) and Megg Hochbaum (@djshesay).  Needless to say, this is a spoiler-filled discussion, so you have been warned!

    To inspire conversation and criticism of a show beyond the juvenile “that’s dumb” or “I liked it.” The show is hardly straight forward. Give the show a listen and you might realize that there are actually themes and layers to the series. Or not, maybe you just want entertainment. But this show is here to inspire a discussion.

      I’m sorry you see invisible underlined themes.

        And I guess I’m sorry you appear to look at things at face value? (This is going nowhere.)
