    Christine Ebersole is awesome & hilarious (in comedic roles). this season is going to be the best one yet. i just know it.

    *pssst* It’s Glinda the Good Witch.

    But that’s awesome. I liked season 1, as disjointed and rough as it was. Season 2 was mindblowingly good, with an ending that wrapped everything up neat, tight and beautifully, cannot wait for season 3! AHS is truly one of the best shows to ever grace television with one of the most talented recurring casts ever :D

    I’m disappointed in Ryan. As a gay man, he should know that her name is Glinda, not Glenda. XD In all seriousness though, I’m really glad that there will be good witches also. I hope this season turns out as well as I picture it in my head. I really love this show so I think I’ll be happy with however they do this season.

      ThunderDragoon, are you sure that it’s not Mr.D who misspelled Glinda and not Murphy? lol.
