This weeks chapter begins with a flashback, showing the Axeman typing his infamous letter in 1919. To summarize, he tells the people of New Orleans that at 12:15 precisely on the next Tuesday night, he will pass over New Orleans. He says that anyone who has a jazz band playing at the time he plans to arrive, will be spared. Those who refuse to play his favorite type of music that night, are told they will meet the end of his axe. As he reads his letter out loud, so does the headmistress of Robichaux's at that time, Millie, who is played by Grace Gummer, the daughter of Meryl Streep. The witches all begin to wonder how they're going to get a jazz band on such short notice, and another says they can play songs from her record collection. The headmistress doesn't feel they should do anything to placate the killer and the girls strongly disagree. Millie ponders over what to do and gives the girls a pep talk about how powerful they are and that no man should be able to make them cower in their own home.
