Cordelia (Sarah Paulson) isn't leaving anything to chance in the coming war with Michael Langdon (Cody Fern): Madison (Emma Roberts) and Behold (Billy Porter) did some off-site reconnaissance work over at what remained of "Murder House;" Bubbles (Joan Collins) and Myrtle (Frances Conroy) took care of that warlock problem; and Coco (Leslie Grossman) helped take down Langdon's "Lady Macbeth," Mead (Kathy Bates). Not a bad position for the Coven…
As you can see from the preview below (and image above) for the next episode of American Horror Story: Apocalypse, 'Sojourn,' it's clear that Langdon's not taking the news too well – and he's definitely not going down quietly:
Here's a look back at Bleeding Cool's review of last week's 'Traitor;' and in this essential scene from that episode, Cordelia reminds everyone – including the viewers – that there is a price to be paid for crossing her coven:
Here's a friendly little flashback to the "simplier times" of the first season of American Horror Story – the one that started it all:
Sarah Paulson, Jessica Lange, Emma Roberts, Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Cheyenne Jackson, Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman, Taissa Farmiga, Gabourey Sidibe, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, and Stevie Nicks have returned to Murphy's horrific universe. Joan Collins (Dynasty), Cody Fern (House of Cards), Ashley Santos (We All Fall Down), and Kyle Allen (The Path) serve as new cast members for the season.
Now get your scorecards out to see how everyone matches up, AHS fans! Rabe appeared in the Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Hotel, and Roanoke seasons, while Sidibe appeared in Coven, Freak Show, and Hotel. Farmiga appeared in Murder House, Coven, and Roanoke; AHS mainstay Conroy has appeared in six seasons: Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Roanoke, and Cult. Nicks appeared as the White Witch during Coven.
Meanwhile… Paulson's Billie Dean Howard appeared in Murder House, and her Cordelia Foxx appeared in Coven. Peters played ghostly teen Tate Langdon in Murder House and fraternity president Kyle Spencer in Coven. Lange's Constance Langdon appeared in Murder House, while Bates and Roberts joined the franchise during Coven as Madame Delphine LaLaurie and Madison Montgomery, respectively.
And then we have new characters… Paulson as Ms. Wilhemina Venable, Peters as Mr. Gallant, Bates as Ms. Miriam Mead, Grossman as Coco St. Pierre Vanderbilt, Lourd as Mallory, and Porter as Dinah Stevens.
