Warning: Contains spoilers for deteriorate 8, part 9 of American Horror Story, “Fire and Reign.”

We’ve reached a penultimate part of Apocalypse, and things aren’t looking good for a good guys going into a final showdown between Michael Langdon and a coven.

Still, being henchmen for a confused antichrist isn’t easy work. Mutt (Billy Eichner) and Jeff (Evan Peters) lay in their lab coked adult out of their minds, deliberating their frustrations with amiability as a whole and Michael Langdon (Cody Fern), who has no thought how he’s ostensible to move about a apocalypse. Venable (Sarah Paulson) pays them a revisit and admits to overhearing their chats about The Cooperative. She wants in, though they giggle her out of a room and tell her she isn’t good adequate to join a chosen group.

Over during a coven mansion, Mallory (Billie Lourd) is struggling to use her powers on a passed bird. After unwell to move it behind to life, she reveals to Cordelia (Sarah Paulson) and Myrtle (Frances Conroy) that she doesn’t cruise she’s clever adequate to strengthen a coven and stop Michael. Attempting to palliate Mallory’s fears, Cordelia explains that there’s a insurance spell on a residence and that no tellurian nor demon will be means to dig it.

But cruise again! Dinah Stevens (Adina Porter) shows adult on a doorstep and simply breaks a spell so that Michael and robo-Mead (Kathy Bates) can enter a house. It turns out she done a understanding with a devil—she’s going to turn a subsequent Oprah and get her possess speak show. Michael and Mead miscarry a magic doctrine by Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) and Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) and massacre everybody though many of a fight. Only a handful of a coven remain: Cordelia, Myrtle, Mallory, Madison (Emma Roberts), and Coco (Leslie Grossman). Misty Day (Lily Rabe) is also using around somewhere with Stevie Nicks.

Following a magician bloodbath, Michael offers his half-baked ideas to Mead on how he can move about a apocalypse. One of those ideas is indeed usually a tract for Omen III: The Final Conflict, which concerned Damien (the antichrist) using for boss and afterwards starting a war. We learn that Mutt and Jeff are charity recommendation to Michael by hacking into Mead’s programming and vocalization by her. According to them, The Cooperative (a.k.a. a Illuminati) is done adult of a many absolute people from all tools of multitude who have all sole their souls to Satan and are during Michael’s disposal.

Having suffered a good loss, a coven tries to regroup and come adult with a new plan. Cordelia wonders since she’s incompetent to rescue a souls of her depressed sisters, that prompts Madison to mangle a news that Michael has a ability to erase souls. It’s now apparent that there’s no approach for a witches to win in their benefaction state. The usually resolution is to use their many absolute asset, Mallory, to go behind in time and forestall this outcome. In what competence be one of a many pointless moments in AHS history, Cordelia has Mallory go on a hearing run behind to Siberia in 1918 to stop a associate witch, Anastasia Romanov, from being assassinated with a rest of her family during a comrade Revolution. The goal fails since Mallory isn’t clever enough. As they cruise other options, Cordelia toys with a thought of murdering herself so that Mallory can rise as Supreme and benefit strength. She and Myrtle conduct to a wizard propagandize to plead a situation, though find everybody passed with a bodies organised in a figure of a pentagram.

Just as a witches’ numbers are being decimated, Team Satan is ballooning. Mutt and Jeff let Venable know that they’ve figured out a place for her in a post-apocalyptic universe as a conduct of one of a outposts built by The Cooperative. Meanwhile, Michael and Mead conduct to a imagination shelter for a one-percenters, where they outline a devise to move about a finish of days.

As we conduct into a finale, there’s a lot that needs to occur in usually a brief volume of time. Is it probable that Mallory’s resolution for branch behind time and interlude Michael is to go behind to a commencement of time and pull a reset symbol on humanity? Perhaps she’ll take Timothy (Kyle Allen) and Emily (Ash Santos) along to be a Adam and Eve of a new timeline. Doing so would erase everybody else we’ve met from existence and make Mallory God. This seems to be a best approach to tie together all of theories that have been floating around online all season.
