'American Horror Story': Ryan Murphy on chopping off [SPOILER]'s head and even more Stevie Nicks -- EXCLUSIVE

[SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE LATEST AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN!!!!!]

It was teased on EW’s recent American Horror Story: Coven cover but last night we saw Madame LaLaurie (Kathy Bates) literally lose her head. Marie Laveau (Angela Bassett) lopped off her archenemy’s noggin and sent it in a box to Fiona (Jessica Lange), payback for the death of her minotaur boyfriend. But that was just the tip of the iceberg in terms of dramatic events. Joan (Patti LuPone) gave her son a toxic enema. Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) cut out the heart of a homeless man. And Fiona wore some really fabulous turbans. EW talked to co-creator Ryan Murphy about the latest AHS: Coven developments, including more Stevie Nicks!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When did you decide to chop off LaLaurie’s head? Was that decided from the beginning?
RYAN MURPHY: Well the interesting thing about that story was basically we’ve established that LaLaurie’s punishment is that she can live forever so she’s a character who can’t be killed. So at a certain point, as she even says in the episode, she learned like, “F*** you. You can do whatever you want.” So you’re like What could Marie do to her that would be heinous? And then what could we follow with that to make it even more heinous? So when we came up with the idea that she would definitely cut off her head, we decided that wasn’t enough and that Gabourey Sidibe had to do something that would make it even worse. Then we came up with that which is one of my favorite things we’ve ever done. Then we came up with a whole episode which is the winter cliffhanger called “Head” where we follow the travails of Kathy Bates’ head and things happen to other characters’ literal heads or intellects or brain power. She’s such a villain yet Kathy’s so empathetic so it’s become this weird thing where I’m shocked that people are rooting for Madame LaLaurie. I think what happens in the winter cliffhanger “Head” is beyond hilarious. READ FULL STORY

'American Horror Story': Jessica Lange on why next season will be her last -- EXCLUSIVE

It’s hard to imagine American Horror Story without Jessica Lange—she has appeared in all three seasons after all. But Lange has confirmed that next year’s fourth season will be her last. “It ends up being a lot of time during the year being committed to something,” admits the actress. “I haven’t done that for a long time. It’s like doing a stage play between the rehearsal and the run. This is a 6-month commitment every year. That will be four years in a row. I want to have more time to myself I guess. Once it’s over and I have a full year ahead of me with nothing to do, who knows? It might not have been the best decision. But I think four years doing something is a sufficient amount of time.” READ FULL STORY

'American Horror Story': Ryan Murphy on the latest 'Coven' and what's next for Madame LaLaurie -- EXCLUSIVE

[SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE LATEST EPISODE OF AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN!!!!!]

The latest installment of American Horror Story: Coven (which also happens to grace this week’s cover of EW) saw an immortal sadist having her first hamburger, a dead-dead-alive menage-a-trois, Angela Bassett handling fish heads and Denis O’Hare in a kimono. But there’s still even more to talk about so EW chatted with co-creator Ryan Murphy about the latest Coven developments and how Stevie Nicks fared with her guest-spot.

Ryan Murphy tweets picture of Stevie Nicks on 'American Horror Story'

This season of American Horror Story has seen the horror anthology transform into a full-blown diva parade, with acting luminaries/EW cover stars Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett, and Kathy Bates playfully throwing nuclear acting grenades back and forth. But one diva has ruled the show without even technically appearing in person: Stevie Nicks, whose music and overall vibe serves as spiritual inspiration for backswamp necromancer Misty Day.

Because there is a God — or at least a devil with good taste — Nicks will guest-star on an upcoming episode of Coven, and Horror Story producer Ryan Murphy just tweeted a picture of her from the set. Although Nicks doesn’t look too crazy in the photo, it’s a good bet that she was filming a scene where she dies and gets resurrected ten times. Check out the full picture below:

Stevie Nicks to guest on 'American Horror Story: Coven'

Perfect casting alert!

Ryan Murphy revealed on Twitter Tuesday morning that American Horror Story: Coven will soon welcome another big-name guest star: witchy woman Stevie Nicks.

The news should come as no surprise to Murphy superfans; he’s made no secret of his longtime love for the singer-songwriter, whose work with Fleetwood Mac inspired a Glee tribute episode in 2011. “When I was growing up, I was always obsessed with those Stevie Nicks songs like ‘Rhiannon’ and ‘Gypsy,’” the AHS creator told EW last month. “And I remember reading an article where Courtney Love called Stevie Nicks the ‘white witch’ and Grace Slick the ‘dark witch.’ And I have a good relationship with Stevie because of Glee. She is one of the few artists that have come to hang out. She had been writing Lea [Michele] and I regularly since the Cory [Monteith] situation, because she really loved Cory [who passed away in July]. So she’s just a wonderful, wonderful person.”

'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy on the show's new end game

Last week’s Finn/Cory Monteith farewell episode of Glee was not an easy episode for fans of the usually joy-filled show, but it certainly paid fitting tribute to the young star, who died at 31 in July, and the popular character whom he portrayed. But it also left a large, lingering question: What next?

Well, according to creator Ryan Murphy, he may have finally figured out how to adjust some major pieces of the puzzle in light of the unexpected and devastating event. “The whole [last] year of the show — which will be next year — was really designed around Rachel-Cory/Finn story. I always knew that. I always knew how it would end,” he told reporters before a Paley Center event honoring the FX network Wednesday night in Los Angeles. “I knew what the last shot was — he was in it. I knew what the last line was; she said it to him. So when a tragedy like that happens you sort of have to pause and figure out what you want to do.”

Murphy said he thinks he has “a good idea” of what his adjusted end game will look like and plans to pitch it to the studio and network this month. “I think it’s very satisfactory and kind of in his honor, which I love,” he said of the new idea.

More immediately, Murphy, who is also in the middle of production on the current season of American Horror Story: Coven, said the next episodes of Glee will be “a little more traditional because [the tribute] episode was so hard on the cast,” he said. Titled “A Katy or a Gaga,” the Nov. 7 episode has “lots of costumes, a lot of great set pieces,” he added.  

While the music continues on Glee, moving on after Monteith’s death hasn’t been an easy — as one might expect. “It’s hard every day,” Murphy said.
