In the third installment of "American Horror Story," the witches came out.  And Sarah Paulson, who played a headmistress of an academy for young witches, kept a watchful eye at all times—not even letting a bout of blindness cause her pause.

Paulson will stop by the Los Angeles Times on Friday to take part in a live chat at 3:30 p.m. PDT to discuss the wicked world of the witchy third season.

As Cordelia Foxx, Paulson was, in a nutshell, a very tortured witch: She's intent on giving her pupils the tools to keep their powers in check—at least for a while; she's infertile and her hubby was not the man she thought he was; acid was thrown in her eyes; and she's also the estranged daughter of Supreme witch Fiona, played by "AHS" first lady Jessica Lange. It's enough to send any witch to therapy.

And yet it was a somewhat relaxed season, sprinkled with some humor, compared  to the deranged experiences Paulson faced playing Lana Winters, the reporter-turned-forced-mental patient, while at Briarcliff Manor, the creepy mental institution that lighted up last season's horrors.

We'll talk to Paulson about being the veritable princess to Lange's queen-status, of the anthology series, the girl-power dynamic of the season and how that affected her performance, oh and sex scenes with snakes--among other topics.
