Relationship between the seven wonders and Stevie Nicks

  • The seven wonders discussed in the show are clearly a reference to the popular Fleetwood Mac song "Seven Wonders." However, according to Stevie Nicks, when Ryan Murphy asked to use her music they did not plan on her actually acting in any episodes. So this leaves me wondering the extent Nicks' relationship with the wonders will be in the show. Did Ryan write in that plot line for her or was the reference something he had in mind from the beginning? It's been confirmed Nicks is supposed to sing a song which could easily be Seven Wonders (although I'm personally hoping for Rhiannon!). Do you think the lyrics of the song will tie into the show in any way? If so, how?

    • It may just be a coincidence that the Supremacy is tied to having gone through the tests of the Seven Wonders and Seven Wonders being a Stevie Nicks song as well. But seeing the heavy implication of Stevie Nicks as a somewhat of a "supporting character" this season and the deliberate use of her songs during pivitol moments, I think Seven Wonders as a song and Supreme device isn't an accident.

      I am going to infer that the message of Seven Wonders, as I see it in relationship with the show, is Fiona's journey...her trying to find the true love that once touched her and the everlasting happiness that alludes her...

      Fiona will never match the beauty of who she was ever again and if she finds the true meaning of life and sees the miracles inside and around her, she will make a path to her end of the rainbow and the "gold" that is waiting there for her.

      Going along with a Wizard of Oz comparison, as this season has been speculated to have some homages to, Dorothy finds her "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" when she finds herself and realizes what she was looking for was not outside her front door, but within her own surroundings. Once she defeated her demons in the dream of Oz, Dorothy awakened in Kansas as a changed girl.

      Fiona will find that what love,life,and everlasting beauty she was looking for wasn't outside the Academy...in her daughter (the embodiement of true love) and in the Coven.

      Since the season's star is Fiona, the Seven Wonders is her life, and the demonstration of the Seven Wonders, as Ryan Murphy promised, will be Fiona coming to terms with herself and finding her "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"....

      The Supremacy can: 

      a) die with Fiona's death,stopping any further infighting over it, therefore saving the Coven and bringing peace

      b) be found in Cordelia, Fiona's "pot of gold"

    • I wish I knew more about Stevie Nicks songs (good music but not a HUGE fan) because then we could be trying to figure out what is going to happen on the show.  Can't remember where but I did read an article where RM said he talked to her about doing something on the show and she said that thing actually happens in one of her songs.  He was surprised as he had forgotten the song apparently.  Any Stevie Nicks experts out there that can think of something that would/could happen on the show that is in one of her songs?

    • I thought that perhaps the lyrics to Seven Wonders represented a relationship between Fiona and Stevie. I don't mean as lovers but perhaps as childhood friends who had to go their separate ways. Possibly because of a falling out? The song could be an oath to Fiona saying that she will put aside their difference and return to the coven when the next supreme is about to rise. 

      If you think about it, it could make sense. Fiona couldn't just randomly ask a busy celebrity like Stevie Nicks to come visit an extremely small group of witches. They would have to know each other, or at the very least Stevie would have to know about the Seven Wonders. However, I'm unsure if Stevie will visit because of her fascination of the Seven Wonders or as a one time favor for her Supreme. Perhaps both.

      Also from what I understand Stevie will be performing more than one song, one of which will be a duet with Misty. I'm going to go ahead and place my bet on Seven Wonders (because of the relevence it has to the show) and Rhiannon (because it is the song that inspired Misty to embrace her powers and it's based off a story about a witch).

      However, those aren't the only two that could be interpreted as having a connotation with witches or magic. Crystal, Edge of Seventeen, Landslide and even Gypsy could be possibilities as well. But really almost any Nicks song is open to interpretation. I'm sure Ryan Murphy could work with anything she'd give him.

      I definitely agree with you, after all Ryan Murphy has quoted The wizard of oz references in the show, and it matches with the Seven Wonders song.

    • I believe I read on IMDB that Stevie Nicks appears in 2 episodes. If that's correct, then she will be in the finale. Perhaps Fiona's OZ will be on the farm with the Axeman.

    • Reading these comments after seeing the final episode, I'm amazed/impressed by how accurate these statements actually are.
