Is Michael Langdon a Supreme Warlock on 'American Horror Story: Apocalypse'?

American Horror Story: Apocalypse opened with a new twist on Wednesday night. While most viewers were under the impression that Michael Langdon was the antichrist, it turns out he might be a warlock.

The episode starts with Langdon (Cody Fern) speaking to his mother figure Ms. Mead (Kathy Bates). "She was the closest person I ever had to a mother. To this day, I don't know how she found me and I was glad to finally find a real home," he recalls. "She made me feel happy and protected."

"So you do understand why I gave you her form and her thoughts," Langdon says to Ms. Mead, who viewers learned was a robot. "Who better than the person who I never stopped trusting or loving?"

When Ms. Mead responds, "Hail Satan," he responds: "Not quite, but I appreciate the sentiment."

The episode then goes back in time, showing Langdon being imprisoned for causing harm to a butcher who insulted Ms. Mead. But he's not there for long. A warlock breaks Langdon out of jail in an effort to harness Langdon's powers. While viewers were under the impression that Langdon's magic was black, the warlocks think he might be their savior.

Langdon is taken to the warlock coven to determine if his powers are real. He passed his first test when he's asked to describe a book that was hidden and then reaches through a mirror to pull it out.

While most of the men in the room are impressed with Langdon, not everyone is spellbound. "Impressive and troubling. Quite simply, he ignored instructions," one of the warlocks, played by Cheyenne Jackson, says.

For his second test, Landgon is able to move quickly, avoiding the quick throw of an arrow. During his third test, he's able to turn water into snow, turning the room into an arctic tundra. He takes it a step further, making the room so cold that the men are unable to breathe and nearly freeze to death.

"I'm sorry. I didn't know that was inside me," he says. All but the one warlock who doubted him are in awe. "He almost killed us. Can't you see that there's a malevolence to his magic?" the doubter (Jackson) says.

"Don't be afraid of Michael. Be afraid of the status quo. Be afraid to do nothing," one of the warlock says. back "We can't stop now. We're at the cusp. This is the moment when everything changes."

The warlocks then meet with the supremes: Cordelia Foxx (Sarah Paulson) and Myrtle Snow (Francis Conroy). They tell the supremes they want Cordelia to administer the test of the seven wonders to Langdon, saying he could be the new supreme.

On Wednesdays we wear black...and cry because Cordelia needs to be the supreme forever. Thanks, bye. @AHSFX #AHSApocalypse pic.twitter.com/XJAukoBwVv

When Cordelia denies their request, they bring up how she left Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) behind in the Hotel Cortez. She then reveals she tried everything she could to rescue Queenie, but nothing worked. Ultimately, it was Langdon who removed Queenie from the Hotel Cortez. Next, Langdon shows up to retrieve Madison from her personal hell.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
