The death count is so high on American Horror Story: Coven — and death is often so temporary — it's sometimes hard to remember who's alive, who died, and who's alive again. Never fear, Horror fans — we've got you covered.



Episode 1: "Bitchcraft"

Kyle Spencer (Evan Peters): Though Kyle wasn't one of the frat brothers who gang raped Madison, he was on the bus that she upended with her telekinesis afterward. She and Zoe found him in pieces in the morgue and assembled the "perfect boyfriend" from his head and his frat brothers' body parts.

Episode 3: "The Replacements"

Anna-Lee Leighton (Christine Ebersole): A young, power-hungry Fiona decided to inherit the throne from her predecessor Supreme a bit ahead of schedule, slitting Annaleigh's throat in the Academy parlor.

Madison Montgomery (Emma Roberts): Fiona seemed to be ready to pass her Supreme-hood on to the next generation, begging Madison to stab her. But as they wrestled with the knife, however, history repeated — and she slit Madison's throat, only to come to her senses once Madison was bleeding out on the floor. ("This coven doesn't need a new Supreme. It needs a new rug.") Luckily for the Hollywood starlet, Misty was able to bring her back to life.

Alicia Spencer (Mare Winningham): Franken-Kyle didn't take too kindly to his mother trying to get jiggy with him. He bludgeoned her with a childhood trophy after she started to fondle him.

Episode 5: "Burn, Witch, Burn!"

Myrtle Snow (Frances Conroy): Fiona wrangles the Witches Council away from its leader, Myrtle, by accusing her of blinding Cordelia with acid, using Queenie's voodoo-doll powers to make acid burns appear on Myrtle's hand. Myrtle is then sentenced to burn at the stake. Luckily, Misty finds her charred remains and resurrects her.

Episode 6: "The Axeman Cometh"

The Axeman (Danny Huston): Though the jazz-loving Axeman continues to present-day New Orleans, the mortal life of the serial killer ended when the Robichaux witches lured him to the Academy in 1919 and stabbed him to death.

Kaylee (Alexandra Breckenridge): Kaylee fell in love with the wrong married dude. No sooner did she say those three magical words than he put a silenced handgun to her head.

Episode 7: "The Dead"

Spalding (Denis O'Hare): Zoe gave back the mute butler's tongue long enough for him to confirm that Fiona killed Madison — and stabbed him in the chest as soon as he started to sass her.

Episode 8: "The Sacred Taking"

Joan Ramsey (Patti LuPone): Joan, the evangelistic sadist next door, found herself in the crossfire, taking bullets to the chest as Hank fired at Nan. Luckily for her, Fiona needed to witness Misty's powers of resurgence, and Joan's was the closest corpse they could find.

Episode 9: "Head"

Quentin and Pimbrooke (Leslie Jordan and Robin Bartlett): In retribution for sentencing her to death, Myrtle paralyzes her fellow Council members, takes an eye for each of them to give to Cordelia, and cuts them into pieces.

Luke Ramsey (Alexander Dreymon): In the hospital, Luke makes a miraculous recovery from his gunshot wound but is smothered by his mother after he accuses her (accurately) of killing his father.

Hank Foxx (Josh Hamilton): When Hank comes to attack Marie Laveau and her beauty salon, Queenie stops him by shooting herself in the head, which effectively shoots him in the head thanks to her voodoo-doll powers.

Episode 10: "The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks"

Joan Ramsey (Patti LuPone): Joan met her second death when Nan discovered that Joan killed her son, Luke — Nan's crush — and telepathically forced her to drink bleach.

Nan (Jamie Brewer):
Fiona and Marie drown Nan in a bathtub so that Papa Legba would take her soul and grant Fiona immortality in exchange. Nan, eager to get out of the Academy, seems totes cool with the arrangement.

Episode 11: "Protect the Coven"

Harrison Renaud and David (Michael Cristofer and Mike Colter): Harrison, Hank's father and the CEO of the witch-hunting Delphi Trust, and his lackey David were axed by Fiona and the Axeman in the world's bloodiest boardroom meeting.

Episode 12: "Go to Hell"

Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange): Cordelia sees an apocalyptic vision of Fiona killing the entire coven, goes to the Axeman, and aligns him against her. When Fi visits him, he discovers her boarding pass for a flight to Paris and realizes that she's been playing him like one of his saxophones. Knowing the jig is up, Fi finally comes clean, telling the Axeman that he was just the means to an end. Then, as starts reminiscing about some calico cat, he abruptly cuts her off with an axe to the back.

The Axeman (Danny Huston): Covered in Fiona's blood, the Axeman returns to Robichaux, practically foaming with rage. Big mistake. Led by Zoe's rallying cry, the witches hack him to death.

Marie Laveau (Angela Bassett): Delphine exacts vengeance for Marie beheading her by dismembering Marie.

Delphine LaLaurie (Kathy Bates): With Marie dead, Delphine is — unbeknownst to her — mortal again. Queenie tracks Marie to the latter's homestead and slits her throat. Delphine wakes up to find that she and Marie are trapped together in each other's version of Hell: Delphine can only watch while Marie tortures Delphine's daughters, and Marie is forced to harm children who have done her no wrong.

Episode 13: "The Seven Wonders"

Misty Day (Lily Rabe): Misty never made it back from hell during the decensum phase of the Seven Wonders test, and her corporal body disintegrated into ash.

Zoe Benson (Taissa Farmiga):
 Zoe died during the transmutation phase of the Seven Wonders when she accidentally teleported herself onto the spikes of the iron fence outside the school. (Luckily, she was later resurrected.)

Madison Montgomery (Emma Roberts):
 Madison died a second death when Kyle strangled her, furious that she didn't save Zoe.

Myrtle Snow (Frances Conroy):
 The witches burned Myrtle at the stake a second time, but this time, it was her idea! She confessed that she had killed the council members and told Cordelia she wanted herto start her reign as Supreme free of scandal.

Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange):
Fi came back to Robichaux on the verge of dying from cancer and revealed to Cordelia that she had faked her axe-death. She wanted her daughter to slice her to death, but Cordelia convinced her to just die peacefully. (Too bad she headed straight to hell!)
