Recap of "American Horror Story-Coven" Episode 10: "Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks": It is truce time for the two long-time enemies, Fiona and Marie. The episode reveals that Marie is 300-years-old. And, after a long time of being alone, Marie believes she has found her equal in Fiona. Papa Legba, a demon spirit, had blessed Marie with immortality after taking her soul in return. Also, every year, Marie has to give her services to the demon spirit. In the past, she had to give-up her new-born baby to Papa Legba. This time, Papa Legba visits Marie and demands that she brings him the soul of an innocent. Marie goes to a hospital and steals a black baby, and using her witch powers, she gets away without being caught.
Fiona wants to find the hive of the witch hunters, as there cannot be a solo witch hunter. When she comes to know about the true identity of Hank, Fiona gets mad at Cordelia for bringing a viper [Hank] inside the academy. It is Marie who hired Hank's help to wipe-out the white witches, but Fiona lashes out at only Cordelia. Later, she also stops Cordelia from helping to harm Hank's father organisation, Delphi Trust. Fiona calls Cordelia worthless as she has no powers to accomplish anything.
Delphi Trust is a powerful organisation, with deep pockets and Fiona realises that a direct attack would be futile. Marie and Fiona set a maze of mouse-trap and put bundles of money around it. Rats are made to sniff a powder and are put inside the maze. Soon, the office of the Delphi Trust is swarming with investigative officers. Harrison, Hank's (real name Henry) father, is informed that a considerable amount of money has leaked-out in 10 minutes. Harrison realises that this money leakage is not natural but the doing of the witches.
