"American Horror Story" season 3 episode 8 streaming faithful, welcome. Watch the show here. The eighth episode of "Coven" isn't airing this week, thanks to Thanksgiving. And that's okay, becasue it's Thanksgiving and we're all busy busy busy. Imagine if we still lived in a world where you actually had to watch things as they aired, or never. I think we'd all default to never, even with a show as good as "American Horror Story: Coven." Luckily, we get this week off. A perfect time to buy your Season Pass, amirite? UPDATE: Okay, guys. It's a week later and now the episode is finally here, for real this time.

So if you don't have the vim and vigor to live without "American Horror Story" season 3 episode 8, "The Sacred Taking." Streaming is the obvious answer for you: catch up on the rest of the season! I'm sorry, it's tough bananas that the only two legal streaming sites are Amazon and iTunes, and iTunes isn't really streaming, it's downloading a bunch of DRMed crud a day or two later. Yeah, that's a tough banana to chew, ain't it? Oh, and spoiler alert, neither of them is free. At least you can use the weekend to get caught up before "The Sacred Taking" airs on December 4.

Free "American Horror Story" season 3 episode 8 streaming is simply not going to happen if you care about legality (if I'm wrong, let me know in the comments). If you don't, I suspect you have your own nefarious ways of tracking such things down, and I certainly won't help you. But, ye innocents, I lament the lack of "American Horror Story" streaming on your behalf. Chalk it all up to a fight between the big network production companies, Netflix, and the networks themselves. The latter is the only group that wants to put shows up on streaming, whether on their own sites or on Hulu - seriously, FX would have your back on this one if it was up to them. But the production company behind "American Horror Story" wants that sweet, sweet Netflix buck, and they're not going to get as much of it if "Coven" has already aired online. And so it won't, unless you pay for it.

Oh well; so much for "American Horror Story" season 3 episode 8 streaming. And I'll tell you what, maybe it's just me, but I'm not really in the mood for "Coven" this week. Which is okay, since we aren't getting an episode. I mean, tomorrow's Thanksgiving. I'm still really into the show, obviously, but not this long weekend. It's turkey and stuffing and shopping time, not time for witches and voodoo. Thankfully, by the time I care again, the episode will be just about ready to air. We just have to wait a whole week.

In case you're less indifferent than I am, here's the official description for "American Horror Story" season 3 episode 8, "The Sacred Taking":

Cordelia rallies the girls in the fight to stop Fiona. A dangerous new enemy puts Misty in the crosshairs. The rivalry between Marie Laveau and Delphine comes to a head.

"The Sacred Taking" airs on Wednesday, December 4, at 10 PM Eastern, 9 Central.
