** Actually, the point ''is'' that she's forced into taking revenge against those who tormented her. She's forced to see that, despite being high and mighty, she gives into her desires for revenge and can't justify them as being for the greater good. Also, she's forced to torture all three daughters and she doesn't like hurting 'Innocents' in her own, warped way.

***** My theory: Quentin was a holdover from early in production. The original plan was to spin Coven off into it's own show, but that was eventually scuttled. The role of Warlocks would most likely have been a major plot point, once the new Supreme was in place.

*** BecauseDestinySaysSo. A Supreme they couldn't find wouldn't be particularly useful.

** AHS happens in a CrapsackWorld. Misty chose to go into Hell, knowing what the consequences would be if she failed. Even if we assume Papa Legba COULD help her, why would he?

** It's ambiguous, and largely depends on your definition of justice. Would it be better for someone like Delphine to be punished or redeemed?

* Was it meant to be a bad thing that Queenie sold Delphine out to Marie Laveau? The show kind of implies that Queenie feels guilty but also quickly undoes Delphine's character development implying that Delphine is getting what she deserved.

** My personal interpretation of the Seven Wonders is that they are meant to be tests in seven fundamental categories of magic. Telekinesis (magic to manipulate matter), Pyrokinesis (magic to manipulate energy), Transmutation (magic to manipulate space), Concilium (magic to manipulate the mind/thought), Vitalium Vitalis (magic to manipulate life), Divination (magic to acquire information), and Descensium (magic to manipulate the soul). Soul magic might then encompass a wide variety of skills, including seances, exorcisms, and other forms of necromancy, but Descensium is probably selected as one of the Seven Wonders because projecting oneself into the astral plane and then returning is the most advanced kind of soul magic.

* Doesn't Marie Laveau's punishment in Hell seem a little pointless? While one could argue that it's "Marie being robbed of her righteousness" isn't that blatantly disregarding the beginning of the first episode where Marie and her followers killed Delphine's family including Borquita? Plus wasn't it Borquita who possibly coerced Bastian thus fueling Marie to get revenge?
