'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' - Here's what to expect from Episode 5, 'Boy Wonder'

'Boy Wonder' definitely has some answers although we still don't see Lange anywhere - at least in the promo. 

'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' - Here's what to expect from Episode 5, 'Boy Wonder'

'American Horror Story: Apocalypse' is back for episode 5 'Boy Wonder' this week. While the last episode 'Could It Be...Satan?' did provide answers to some burning questions, it left us with even more mysteries. What happened to Mike's coven? Did he end up killing the warlocks and convert the school into an Outpost? Is he really an alpha or just a "demonic possession" like John Henry had pointed out? Is there a chance that they disagreed with him and he killed them all? How does Venable fit into the whole thing? Most importantly, when will Jessica Lange grace our television screens?! 

'Boy Wonder' definitely has some answers although we still don't see Lange anywhere - at least in the promo. 

The promo shows that Cordelia had actually managed to predict the apocalypse. It could perhaps be her Supreme spidey senses kicking in as soon as she sees Michael at Outpost 3 before she passes out.  It shows her walking through the ruins of Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies where cannibals bite into her flesh. A figure who looks eerily similar to Micahel, who is watching the whole thing. She tells them what she saw a terrifying future and the fate of the world depended on what she did next.

There is some symbolism to be found in this promo - she says, "fire, death, the smell of burning flesh..." perhaps describing the apocalypse or the cause of it. The camera lands on the warlock's sacred fire, then Michael's smiling face, then Myrtle Snow's and then Madison's as she says the words. While the connection with Michael and death is quite obvious, the sacred fire could stand for the desperate need for the warlocks to belittle the witches. This burning fire could stand for their ego and jealousy.

Myrtle Snow is a clear sign of burning flesh (she was burnt at the stake, right at the end of 'Coven,' and we don't know why she's back). Then there is Madison, who was just rescued by Micahel; could it be possible that Madison is the final ingredient for bringing the apocalypse? She could very well be a traitor since her loyalties might still lie with her rescuer. There's also a woman in a dress walking in the hall, and it definitely looks like Stevie Nicks. 

The promo also shows a serious wound on her abdomen though we have no context about why and how it got there. This is the second Sarah Paulson character this season with a mysterious infliction. 

On the side of the warlocks, the promo shows that Henry and Behold Chablis are in a fight with someone. Someone manages to pin Behold on the wall and Henry's face can be seen in the middle of casting a spell. The warlocks could have very well gone to war over Michael since we know that not all of them approve of his power. Did Cordelia's prophecy change things leading to Michael destroying them all?

'American Horror Story' airs every Thursday at 10 pm on FX.
