I can’t believe they managed to wrap up everything in one episode. I’m impressed.
I think Mallory’s time travel worked this time because she leaped into her past body, like in the movie Peggy Sue Got Married. That meand her 2015 body is not powerful enough to fight Michael because Cordelia is still alive as the Supreme.
Mallory running Michael over with the car, mirrors Jamie Brewer’s character getting run over on Halloween in season 1. (Still an unsolved mystery.) Constance regretted not being able to bring her daughter to die in the Murder House. I really didn’t know what she was going to decide in that moment. Mallory still should have cut off his head, just to make sure.
As for the DNA couple, we know nothing about the girl’s family. Maybe she only thinks she’s human. Maybe their baby got swapped with the Antichrist like in The Omen, and the real baby is special but hidden away.
Overall, I’m glad I watched this season. I didn’t see Hotel, Roanoke or Cult. I loved the return to Murder House and the three witches in the woods making their grand entrance.
Plus, Misty Day is back. Her looping fate with the dissection always bothered me.
For those confused by the flashback, it began in episode 4 right after Mallory, Coco, and Dinah were resurrected. The flashback continued all the way to the beginning of episode 10. Any scenes with the warlocks at the boys school or the witches mansion was in flashback. If Michael doesn’t have his longest hair and red eye shadow, it’s flashback.
The only part of the apocalypse that we saw was the bunker, the wasteland around it, and that little bit of Billy Eichner coming across radiation cannibals and hitching a ride under the horse carriage.
I would have just moved forward with the Apocalypse and had the witches travel around outside in this newly created world.
But really, this was Coven 2, and I’m fine with it.
