If you want to get the condensed version of Delphine LaLaurie’s crimes, here’s a great piece. It also doesn’t have the really graphic descriptions that were so brutal I felt uncomfortable even repeating them, let alone describing them in my own words. This has to be one of the most evil women in history (in fact, she made several top ten lists of evil women). Hopefully the version of her played by Kathy Bates in American Horror Story Coven will come to a HORRIBLE end, including her soul burning in hell for eternity. Hey, it could happen; witchcraft and voodoo are involved, and Jessica Lange’s character has now been confirmed as playing a witch and LaLaurie’s “arch enemy”.
YIKES. This one is titled “Pins and Needles”. We’re guessing it’s hinting at the very hideous real-life Delphine LaLaurie storyline and what’s in her attic (although many areas of the LaLaurie mansion were very dangerous, scary places to be, especially if you were a slave – she kept her kitchen slaves chained to the stove). Watch below… be warned, this one’s unnerving.
The third season, (or Volume Three, as Ryan Murphy refers to the seasons) premieres on October 9th, 2013. The season premiere is titled “Bitchcraft”. Jessica Lange plays a witch named Fiona, Sarah Paulson plays her daughter Cordelia*, Angela Bassett plays Marie Laveau, and Kathy Bates plays Delphine LaLaurie. Oh, and Alexandra Breckenridge (Young Moira from Season One) will also be making a return appearance–as a new character, of course. Damn! This just keeps getting better and better… more teasers are sure to follow soon!
*a reference to King Lear, rather than Buffy/Angel’s Cordelia Chase. I miss that Cordelia.
