Welcome back to End of Days! Bleeding Cool's 'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' Live-Blog as we take a look at the fifth episode of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's FX horror anthology, 'Boy Wonder'.
After last week's mostly flashback episode explained how Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) made it out of the Hotel Cortez alive (Hotel alert!) and how Madison (Emma Roberts) shuffled back onto this mortal coil (again), Michael Langdon (Cody Fern) proved himself worthy of the fast-track to becoming the first male Supreme – or "Alpha." Big problem: Supreme Cordelia Goode (Sarah Paulson) realizes Langdon's power comes from something ancient and truly evil – more than even the combined powers of the witches and warlocks can contain.
This week's episode takes us back to the show's current timeline – and while we'll still be getting some more of the backstory that lead up to the end of the world, it also appears that Cordelia and her coven are ready for a fight – with the fate of what remains of the world hanging in the balance.
