Witches, beware! Most fans who answered o / OedipusCapulet’s questions with “Apocalypse” suggested disconnecting the heavy “Coven” tapes. Instead, they wanted to see Mallory (Billie Lourd) as an angel rather than the next Supreme. Redditor u / TheLokiDokiOG said they would elaborate on Mallory’s character and “make it clear that God sent her as a counter to the antichrist.” In addition, they suggested that the angel of death from “Asylum” appear when Michael Langdon (Cody Fern), Anti-Christ, is defeated. Fans agreed that it would have worked better when u / telekineticeleven011 said, “It doesn’t even make sense for a witch to stop Anti-Christ lol.”
Other popular suggestions for rewriting fans included spending more time on the apocalyptic theme and giving up the journey altogether. As u / AMT878 wrote: “I would also have preferred them to stay in the outpost a little longer while the witches figured out how to navigate the apocalyptic landscape.” In response to another user, they agreed that the isolation of the outpost could have been like “an ode to ‘The Shining’ with confinement and supernatural events.”
Joining Outpost 3 survivors to Antichrist, u / Scream_Aircoaster suggested adding more episodes so these characters were more important to the plot. They would still include Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), Coco (Leslie Grossman) and Mallory, but “witches would not be the focus of the season.” Redditor devised an idea that Mallory’s power should always be present so that the season could span “different years and events leading up to the apocalypse … weaving more evasively together ‘who, what, where, when and why.’ “
If producer Ryan Murphy ever runs out of ideas for “American Horror Story,” fans on the series’ subreddit would be more than willing to help him.
