We've already seen what the future holds: fire and damnation, brought to you courtesy of Michael Langdon (Cody Fern) and his earth-bound army of influence The Cooperative (aka The Illuminati). Can Cordelia (Sarah Paulson), Mallory (Billie Lourd), Coco (Leslie Grossman), Madison (Emma Roberts), and Myrtle (Frances Conroy) tap into the powers needed to turn the tide in their favor and take down Michael?
In the following preview for FX's American Horror Story: Apocalypse season finale 'Apocalypse Then,' it's Cordelia who raises a truly ominous question: for the world to live, will they have to watch it burn?
Remember that time two episodes ago when Cordelia had a chance to take out Michael when he was at his lowest? This scene from last week's 'Fire and Reign' is the reason she should've taken that shot:
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 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 Steven
