American Horror Story: Coven will use 8 Stevie Nicks songs this season. Misty Day = obsessed with Stevie
Misty Day is a major character in American Horror Story "Coven" this season. She is considered to be a necromancer witch obsessed with Stevie Nicks.
Misty Day Character Background:
A young woman from a backwoods Pentecostal community in the bayous of Louisiana, Misty Day is misunderstood and even feared by those in her community. Without a Coven to call her own, Misty spends her days wandering the swamps and listening to Stevie Nicks.
American Horror Story: Coven Stars Answer Burning Questions on What's Next
Ryan Murphy was asked:
Can Misty use her regenerative power to bring herself back to life? (If you watched the first episode, her character was burned at the stake).
Of course. I love her character. Her character is obsessed with Stevie Nicks. The season really is an allegory or metaphor for any minority in the country where you feel alone. She's a girl who has never known other witches. The only witch she's ever known is Stevie Nicks, so I reached out to Stevie Nicks and asked her if we could use her music. Lily has an amazing Stevie Nicks shawl twirl scene in Episode 3. We used like eight Stevie Nicks songs this year.

EPISODE 6 RECAP: (Wednesday, Nov 13th)
"Get him out of here. He broke Stevie"
Rollingstone recapped tonights (Nov 13) American Horror Story: Coven beautifully... Here's where the Stevie track was placed in the show tonight.
Song used in the scene: Stevie Nicks "Leather and Lace" from the album "Bella Donna" $4.99 at Amazon.
Misty Day is living her best life in the swamp, watering Myrtle's unyielding mound and bathing Kyle. I genuinely feel horrible for Kyle's character. Left to wander confused through the wilderness, Misty's attempts to scrub his wiener in the bathtub (and frankly, the fact she is sort of overbearing and possessive herself) triggers the memory of the abuse at the hands of his mother, and Kyle freaks out. He smashes her record player, (it's actually an 8-track player and it's playing "Leather and Lace") sending Misty weeping to the floor. "Get him out of here. He broke Stevie," she sobs as Zöe arrives at her door. Zöe instead takes Misty and Kyle back to the Academy, employing Misty's powers to bring Madison back from the dead. "There's too much death inside her. Put your hands on her stomach and push," Misty instructs Zöe, and they physically shove Death from Zöe's decayed body. Madison makes a pretty solid recovery, save for the blurry fish-eye vision and inability to drink ginger ale. Unfortunately Madison doesn't yet remember her murder, though she does have some other useful information: "There's nothing on the other side. Just black. Forever." Hoo boy.

EPISODE 3 RECAP: (Wednesday, Oct 23rd)
Only one Fleetwood Mac (Stevie Nicks) tuned used in this weeks episode, but it was well placed in the show and came within the first 15 minutes.
The scene starts out with Misty and Kyle lying on Misty's bed in her swamp shack backed by the sounds of "Sara" by Fleetwood Mac. Misty begins to sing the opening lines to the song while smiling and looking at Kyle... "Wait a minute baby.. Stay with me a while. Said you'd give me light but you never told me about the fire"... Then looks at Kyle and says: "Stevie didn't really find her voice until she and Lindsey joined Fleetwood Mac. That's the thing -- you can't be your best self until you find your tribe. I'm still lookin' for mine."
Zoe then shows up to pick up Kyle and take him home to his mother. Misty, all excited, shows Zoe how she's healed his scars with swamp mud and has nursed him back to health. Misty wants them both to stay for dinner, but Zoe says no, another time... This upsets Misty and she kind of goes off the rails, possessive like, grabs Kyle and says he needs to stay with her, they're connected... Kyle fights back and wants to go with Zoe. Zoe tells Misty she'll come back for her, she promises... Misty thinks otherwise saying "no you won't" as Zoe and Kyle leave the shack... Misty then kind of breaks down like she's been abandoned... starts to cry... Grabs a shawl... and twirls it out Stevie style... End of scene.
Another great episode. One of the young witches was killed tonight by Fiona the Supreme Witch, but I have a feeling she'll be back.

EPISODE 2 RECAP: (Wednesday, Oct 16th)
Episode 2 of American Horror Story: Coven - paid off substantially in the Fleetwood Mac dept. As reported, eight songs are to be used this season and tonight the show kicked off with Stevie's "Edge of Seventeen" during a fairly gruesome scene where Misty Day brings a couple of gators back to life and they mangle two poachers. Misty later on professes her love of Stevie Nicks to Zoe all the while Fleetwood Mac's "Rhiannon" is playing in the background telling Zoe about the song saying "this was her anthem" and that Stevie is the "white witch" and her hero... The show is a hoot, it's all pretty camp, sometimes gross, but cool, fun and especially fun to watch the actors like Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates.
