* FantasticRacism: The Voodoo Queen's kind and Witches are on bad terms at the moment. It also has undertones of normal racism, as voodoo seems to be practiced mostly (or exclusively) by black people, whereas the witches (being descendants of the Salem witches) are mostly white women.
** More a case of UnEqualRites - Marie once referred to herself as a witch, and the Salem descendants have referred to the New Orleans Voodoo community as witches. Marie once helped Fiona with a spell.

* CastingGag: As in ''Asylum'', the creators love to re-cast the actors in roles playing off their previous characters.
** In ''Murder House'', Evan Peters [[spoiler: tries and fails to save Taissa Farmiga, but the house resurrects her as a ghost.]] In ''Coven'', Taissa [[spoiler:tries and fails to save Evan, but her friend resurrects him as a zombie.]]
*** In ''Asylum'', Peters [[spoiler: eventually ends up in a three-way relationship with two women, with two of the three having been resurrected from the dead.]] In ''Coven'', [[spoiler: he again winds up in a three way relationship with two different women, again with two of the three having been resurrected.]]
** In ''Asylum'', Sarah Paulson [[spoiler: is raped by Dr. Threadson, and spends the remainder of the season trying unsuccessfully to abort his child, who grows up to be evil.]] In ''Coven'', [[spoiler:she is barren and tries unsuccessfully to cast a fertility spell.]]
** In ''Asylum'', Creator/LilyRabe plays Sister Eunice, [[spoiler:who was possessed by the Devil, and ultimately killed and then cremated.]] In ''Coven'', she plays Misty Day, and her first scene is [[spoiler:her character being accused of demonic possession and being burned alive.]]
** In Murder House, Creator/JessicaLange (Constance) and Jaime Brewer(Adelaide) play mother and daughter, respectively, and [[spoiler: when Adelaide dies from a hit-and-run, Constance is grief stricken.]] However, in Coven, evil Fiona(Lange) is the Supreme witch, a leader and mother figure of sorts, to Nan(Brewer). Fiona ends up [[spoiler: drowning Nan in cold blood to use her soul for a sacrifice.]]
** In ''Murder House'', Alexandra Breckenridge (Young Moira) [[spoiler: dies from a bullet to the head after a married man tries to rape her and his wife catches them.]] In ''Coven'', [[spoiler: the married man is her lover, she doesn't know he's married, and he's the one who kills her� by shooting her in the head.]]
** Both of Denis O'Hare's characters are physically deformed (burn scars in ''Murder House'' and no tongue in ''Coven'') and in love with Jessica Lange. Who takes advantage of them, using them as her [[TheIgor Igor]].
** In ''Murder House'', Jamie Brewer's character Adelaide [[spoiler: (who lives next door to the main characters) is locked in a closet by her mother as punishment]]. In ''Coven'', Nan [[spoiler:finds Luke (who lives next door to the main characters) locked in the closet by his own abusive mother]].
** In ''Asylum'', Evan Peters' character Kit [[spoiler: takes in a sick and out-of-her mind Jude out of his good heart and his children restore her her sanity]]. In ''Coven'' [[spoiler: Fiona seemingly restores Kyle's mind, but it's suggested her intentions are much less altruistic]].
** Not a specific actor but both ''Murder House'' and ''Coven'' have [[spoiler: the spirit of a dead killer residing in the house, who falls in love with one of the girls that moves in.]]
** In "Murder House," they put Taissa Farmiga in a lot of hats. In "Coven," they put her in even more.



** [[spoiler: Hank, as for WordOfGod.]]

** [[spoiler: Hank, Nan and Joan as for WordOfGod.]]

*** It might also be a SubvetedTrope. Fiona only notes that she can tell one of the silver bullets has been blessed, it doesn't sear her skin or anything. It's possible she's only used a form of psychometry or divination to tell where a mundane object has been. There's definitive evidence that these witches are weak to silver, only that the witch hunters think they are.
