My thoughts:
- Kathy Bates is amazing
- If I was a witch I would be pissed if my powers was to *** someone to death.
- The school seems lame.
- Saw the frat party problem and solution coming but didn't see the one kid dying.
- All in all the jury is out if I will continue watching however I can say that it did invade my dreams last night.

I'm such a wimp. I didn't watch the first two seasons, but the Witch storyline caught my eye. I was out within 10 minutes. Once she went into the attic full of enslaved, tortured slaves I was done. I'm just too much of a wimp to handle the gore.

Gurliegirl - I know what you mean. That first part was gruesome. I quit then, too and watched the rest today. The rest of the episode wasn't so gory. I wish they would tone down the gore-shock. The stories are good enough, they don't need that.

Kathy Bates seemed like she was channeling Betty Davis - her voice inflections were exactly the same.

Jessica Lange is awesome as usual. So was Angela Bassett.

Every season has had their bloody gruesome parts, all the way through. It's not new to this season.

(eta, just an explanation to those those that haven't seen the past seasons and may think the slasher aspect is something new)

Yes, they definitely put the "horror" back in scary shows.

I am loving it so far....these characters are all very interesting and Jessica Lange is still in top form. Kathy Bates' character was about a million times more twisted that I ever would've guessed. I wonder what other unpredictable surprises they have in store....? Bwahaha...

I'm watching and keep putting my hands up to my eyes in horror, but loving the scared feeling all the same. I keep reminding myself it's not real which leads me to applaud the realistic scenes of horror so far. Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett....awesome actors!!

May the ducky bumps continue on my arms for episodes to come...lol.

I missed Sanfran's Aug 3 post above before I watched the first episode, and didn't realize that the Kathy Bates character was based on a real person. Did some reading about Madame LaLaurie and it sounds like what they showed was based on what she actually did - which makes it all the more horrific knowing that someone would commit such atrocities. I thought maybe she was playing the character a little over-the-top, but guess not.

There's a free(!) Kindle book I downloaded yesterday, "Strange True Stories of Louisiana" which has stories about Marie Laveau and Madame LaLaurie. For those who don't know, you can download a free Kindle reader from Amazon for any device too.

Oh. My. God.

This show just gets better, but not better every episode...it gets better every minute!

I love Kathy Bates in this...she is absolutely perfect for this role. Seeing from the trailer for next week that she becomes the maid for the school is poetic justice....could that be anymore perfect? And my head started to spin when I realized that Madison and Zoe were cobbling together a brand new boyfriend for Zoe from the best parts left from the other frat boys, Frankenstein-style. WOW! I never would've expected to see something like that in a million years

Every time I settle in for the ride of a new episode, the story takes a swift left turn into I-never-saw-that-coming land.

Love it. Love it. Love it.

I'm expecting that Kathy's character is somehow going to find out that Marie (Angela Basset) is still around, and will try to seek revenge. But I think first somehow Fiona is going to try to use Kathy Bates to force Marie to give her the immortal spell, or at least come to some kind of deal, perhaps an exchange.

I agree, this was the best episode yet. Kathy Bates is absolutely amazing. When she was sitting in front of her old house, she had the perfect expression of bewilderment at all the changes, but seemed as upset about the fact there was a plaque on the front as she was that her daughters had all been killed.

You have to wonder what kind of baby that Sarah Paulson is going to have.

And Evan Peters was really amazing with the way he was trying to get used to the new body parts - and being alive again. At least now Tarissa Farmiga won't have to worry about having a relationship with him as her boyfriend. I wouldn't think she would be able to kill the undead.

Jessica Lange has been outstanding in all three of her roles. I wouldn't have thought she could have topped season two, but she's every bit as good in this one.

Really, I thought the Frankenstein aspect was pretty silly and below this show. I guess we'll see what becomes of it.

I did some research and was amazed to find that Madame LaLaurie was a real person and pretty much did exactly what the show says she did. Freaky!

I am so jazzed by the inclusion of Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks' music in the show. For rock fans, Stevie has always been the beautiful white witch. The song, Rhiannon, was written about a Welsh witch that she knew(or didn't, maybe she made it all up)...which just happens to be one of the best Fleetwood Mac songs ever written. Lily Rabe even resembles Stevie to a degree...

I missed that one, Naja (phone call). What was it (gravy) referring to?

I have to say, Jessica Lang is FANTASTIC in this, and Kathy Bates is too. Jessica has always been one of my fav actors and if she had chosen to do more Hollywood stuff, I think she would top Meryl for oscars. She's one of the very best there is. I'm liking this season more than the last; I missed the first season don't know anything about that one.

That last episode pushed all the envelopes. I am scarred for life.

Holly, when Cordelia was seeking a spell to get pregnant, Laveau told her “You bring us two ounces of your husband's baby gravy in a Mason jar.”

Watched the most recent episode this afternoon and thought it was great. So far, I like this season better than the previous seasons. I really didn't care for last season at all.
Much of this episode had me on the edge of my seat with my jaw dropped. Can't wait for next week!

Oh I'm just now getting that Fiona and Cordelia are mother and daughter. I thought they were sisters. I agree Holly JL has always been my favorite actress ever since Frances and the Postmen Always Rings Twice.
