This week’s episode of the FX series American Horror Story: Coven, was the one that fans of Stevie Nicks have been waiting for. In November, it was announced that Fleetwood Mac‘s witchy siren would be making a guest appearance on the Ryan Murphy helmed show, and the episode’s title, “The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks,” took the guesswork out of which episode she’d appear in.
All season long the character of Misty Day, played by Lily Rabe (incidentally, the daughter of the late Jill Clayburgh), has shown her affection for Nicks through her wardrobe and her musical selections. One hilarious scene earlier in the season came when a character in the show freaked out and broke Misty’s 8-track tape player, which was playing Nicks’ “Leather and Lace.” “Get him out of here! He broke Stevie!,” yelled Rabe’s character maniacally.
Naturally, Misty Day was extremely happy to see Nicks, the White Witch, show up at the show’s New Orleans home for teen witches, where she had the opportunity to try out a signature Stevie twirl while Nicks was tickling the ivories and singing “Rhiannon.” Take a look below.
Nicks appeared once again at the show’s end to provide show star Jessica Lange’s supreme witch Fiona with a soothing serenade of “Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You?” from the 1985 solo album Rock a Little.
Two episodes remain before American Horror Story wraps up its third season on January 29th.
In other Nicks news, in a recent interview with Us magazine, she said that she’s not planning on doing writing a book or allowing a biopic about her life “until I’m very, very old.” And in more positive news, she address Fleetwood Mac bass player John McVie’s health: “He’s good. He’s gonna be fine. I’m not the least bit worried about John. He’s very, very strong and a man of very few words. He’s not a person to mess with.”
