So who will be the next “supreme?” And no, it won't be Diana Ross.

The question of who will succeed Jessica Lange's Fiona Goode character as the leader of the witches is the main question still burning on American Horror Story: Coven. The season finale airs Wednesday, Jan. 29 on FX Canada (and FX in the U.S.).

So let's take a quick look at the candidates (SPOILER ALERT if you aren't up to date):

Zoe Benson (played by Taissa Farmiga)

Traditional oddsmakers probably would make Zoe the favourite. But American Horror Story rarely plays by the rules.

Madison Montgomery (played by Emma Roberts)

She had some health issues that were holding her back. But they seem to have disappeared after, um, she was brought back from the dead.

Misty Day (played by Lily Rabe)

Having escaped from the fate of being buried alive, this swamp-residing, Stevie Nicks-loving simpleton could be dubbed, “The Natural.”

Cordelia Foxx (played by Sarah Paulson)

There would be great irony to this, since Cordelia is Fiona's daughter, and they rarely saw eye-to-eye on anything. And speaking of eyes ... gross, Cordelia!

Queenie (played by Gabourey Sidibe)

She did betray her sister witches at one point, siding with those voodoo practitioners, so it remains to be seen if the coven has a long memory.

Myrtle Snow (played by Frances Conroy)

No disrespect, but too old.

Nan (played by Jamie Brewer)

She got led away to the other side by that creepy Papa Legba (played by Lance Reddick). But does that mean she's gone for good?

Kyle Spencer (played by Evan Peters)

Yes, ridiculous, I know. But Peters is a great actor, and he hasn't had much to do this season, playing a zombie-like character. Stop sex discrimination now!
