Coven's fifth episode opens with another one of Delphine's super social soirees, in a flashback to All Hallows' Eve in 1833. Delphine is being introduced to eligible bachelors for her daughter, Borquita. They've just met Governor Roman's son, Jacques, and Delphine inquires if he's brave enough to visit her self proclaimed chamber of horrors. Borquita tries to deter her mother from taking the man to see, but Jacques interjects by saying he would have the courage as long as Borquita was to accompany them. Delphine leads the way as Jacques offers Borquita his arm. She brings them to an area draped with red velvet drapes, candles and several covered silver bowls. She asks the young man if he can guess what is in the first dish, and pulls the lid off slightly. Borquita, knowing her mother and what's in the bowl, looks displeased. Jacque is happy to play the game, and sticks his hand into the muck. He chuckles and declares that it must have taken Delphine all afternoon to peel all those grapes. With a sick smile, Delphine pulls the lid completely off to reveal human eyeballs floating around in blood. We see a brief horrifying peek at Delphine plucking the eyeballs from the slaves held captive in her attic of torture. She laughs and covers the bowl back up. She walks down to another dish and asks Jacques if he'd like to try to take a guess at the second surprise. She lifts the lid of the second bowl slightly and gives the man a hint. She tells him that it's long, wet, and slippery. He sticks his hand in and hesitantly guesses that it's sausages. She giggles again as she lifts the lid off completely to display human intestines. In another brief yet disturbing clip, we see Delphine happily ripping out Bastien's intestines and piling them into a bucket next to them. Jacques reels back in horror and quickly turns and runs away. Delphine calls after him saying that he's not man enough for her Borquita, let alone her chamber of horrors. She cackles and fans herself with her fan as she walks past her daughter, who is clearly upset with how her mother behaves.
