“Trice around the circle’s bound Sink all evil into the ground Say it three times and end with, So Mote It Be!” [A Wiccan protection chant]

091013_ahscoveninitiationvidfeat-600x450The return of American Horror Story fell upon us last night, and this time they brought us witches and Southern Gothic. And Kathy Bates! As someone who finds Wicca and Paganism a glimmering curiosity, I’ve been rather excited for the content that is to come this season. Of course, in true AHS spirit, the look into such territory is flamboyant, manic, extravagant and obscene. It’s like a gay man’s Are You Afraid of the Dark. I’m excited for the leading ladies to blow us all away.
