The full synopsis for American Horror Story: Coven season 3, episode 7 “The Dead” is:

“A year earlier: Kyle, hanging with his buddies, shares his dreams about leading a useful, helpful life.

Today: Those who died and were revived try to come to terms with their undead status. One of them, who lived a numbed life and is even more numbed now, is desperate to feel again… to feel anything at all… and is willing to go to extreme measures to make it happen. Another, horrified by what he’s become, only wants to die and feel nothing anymore. But the two find they ultimately have more in common than not. Meanwhile, Queenie spends a night out with Madame LaLaurie, and the two continue to forge their unlikely bond… and something LaLaurie says leads Queenie to question her place in the Coven, and seek out the only other place she feels she might belong. But will the price to be accepted there be too high? Meanwhile, an increasingly ailing and insecure Fiona finds new purpose in a love affair with a very, very dangerous lover… one who’s had his eye on her for a very, very long time. Cordelia makes a fateful decision about her mother, and enlists Zoe’s help. And Zoe goes on a fact-finding mission that leaves her thirsting for vengeance.”
