"American Horror Story: Coven" FX Series 3, Episode 5 "Burn, Witch, Burn!" review

13 cool things about this episode:
  • The bitchy banter between Fiona and her no-good son-in-law.
  • Zombie siege (Nice prosthetic, dude, comments one hapless neighbour, soon to be disemboweled)
  • Taissa Farmiga doing some fancy chainsaw work.  
  • Zombie bonfire in the back yard... more cedar chips please.
  • Poignant stillborn baby scene (Fiona Goode does good)
  • Atmospheric hospital lighting (shades of ITV's "Whitechapel" possessed police station)
  • Surreal witch burning setting 
  • Use of Dr John's R&B "Right Place, Wrong Time"
  • The Veronica Lake, "I Married A Witch" reference (forerunner of TV's "Bewitched")
  • Spaulding playing with one of  his dollies.... a bit too roughly... Snap.
  • The continuing bonding of Queenie with LaLaurie.
  • Angela Bassett's levitation bit.
  • How Fiona is always 3 steps ahead of everyone else, this time using Queenie to trap Myrtle. Fiona tempting Queenie with the promise of being the first black Supreme (hang on, make that the fourth).
