In this week’s episode of American Horror Story: Coven two more actresses make their debuts.
Patti LuPone is introduced as the new neighbor to the academy. Trouble will quickly begin to stir with her and the witches next door when she takes issue with her son interacting with the students of the academy.
Meanwhile, Mare Winningham will make an appearance as Kyle’s distraught, “white trash” mother Alicia.
The full synopsis for American Horror Story: Coven season 3, episode 3 “The Replacements”:
1971: Fiona takes her place as the Supreme by means most foul… and Spalding has seen it all.
Today: an aging and fading Fiona reluctantly visits a plastic surgeon. Meanwhile, Zoe visits with Kyle’s grieving mother to offer her comfort, while the high-strung, churchgoing, hellfire-preaching Joan Ramsey and her handsome son Luke move in next door to the Academy. Elsewhere, the racist Madame LaLaurie is devastated at the thought that a black man has become President of the United States. Fiona humbles her by making the once noble and haughty lady serve as the Academy’s new maid, and when conflict arises between LaLaurie and Queenie, Fiona forces her to serve as Queenie’s personal slave. Meanwhile, out in the swamp, the still-mute Franken-Kyle’s scars are healing quickly, and an unfortunate love triangle begins to develop. Another triangle begins to develop when both Madison and Nan pay Luke a visit, but the meeting goes badly when Joan enters the conversation. As both Cordelia and Fiona receive distressing news from their doctors, Zoe engineers an unwise homecoming. An increasingly desperate Cordelia turns to Marie Laveau for help, while Fiona recognizes something of her own history in Madison and takes to personally mentoring the girl, in her own blunt way. While outside the Academy, a bestial figure stirs in the shadows…
