'American Horror Story Apocalypse' sees fan favorite Stevie Nicks making a comeback in the last episode

The best thing to happen in 2018 has happened when Stevie Nicks appeared on 'Boy Wonder', the last episode of 'American Horror Story: Apocalypse'. The crossover episode took us back to the 'Coven' days and how could 'Coven' be complete without 'The White Witch' - Nicks?



 

Nicks had earlier appeared on the show to guest star while singing her most popular song 'Rhiannon' in an episode from season three, 'Coven'. Misty Day, played by Lily Rabe had expressed her admiration for Nicks and 'Rhiannon', explaining to Taissa Farmiga's teenage character that she is not just a singer who won on 'American Idol', in the second episode of season two.

So, when Ryan Murphy was writing 'Coven', he was already in touch with Nicks, since 'Glee' in 2011, where they met and suffered the loss of a cast member together. This loss brought the cast of 'Glee' close to Nicks and so, when Murphy approached Nicks to get permission to use her record for an episode, an emotional Nicks offered to not only allow the use of 'Rhiannon' but also guest star on the show, reported ETonline

"I think that that was my connection. So, I think that's probably the reason why Ryan actually thought, 'You know, I am going to ask her to do this because she feels connected to us already'," Nicks told The Insider in 2013. While she played herself, Nicks also played a version of herself who is involved with witchcraft and goes by 'The White Witch'. 



 

The rumors of Nicks being a witch were already doing the rounds and even after denying it herself, her image was set as a witch. The appearance on Murphy's show, however, only helped confirm speculations of her being a witch. Moreover, she was reported to introduce her song 'Rhiannon' as "This is a song about a witch," informed ETOnline.

After the episode, Nick moved past the rumor and called the opportunity given to her by Murphy as 'unique'. "I'm all grown up now and I'm fearless," Nicks said. "I'm to the point now in my life where I'm going life is short. Life's too short. So, when great things come your way, don't walk away from them because of something stupid. Just embrace it and have fun with it and do your best."

The next episode of 'American Horror Show: Apocalypse' titled 'Murder House' will see a crossover with 'Return to Murder House' and we can't wait till October 17.
