Ivy Ehrenreich is a mysterious young woman who seems to be stalking Anna with malicious intent. She is a character in American Horror Story: Delicate portrayed by Cara Delevingne.

Background[]

Ivy is a mysterious woman that begins antagonizing famous actress, Anna Victoria Alcott.

Story[]

Upon exiting her apartment building, Anna's attention is drawn to a woman of unique attire who appears to be examining an item on the pavement across the street. After the woman departs, Anna takes a moment to observe the object herself, which turns out to be a bird's nest containing a shattered fertilized egg. At her temporary Hamptons home, Anna sees a reflection of Ivy in her steel steak knife, which was just a hallucination.

Sometime later, Anna attends a pregnancy yoga class and starts experiencing painful cramps. Kamal rushes her to the hospital as she begins bleeding through her pants. At the hospital, she meets Ivy in her nurse uniform, who mentions she recently moved from Toronto. Despite Ivy's denial, Anna is convinced she has seen her somewhere before. During the ultrasound examination conducted by Ivy, Anna feels more and more discomfort. Ivy steps out to consult a doctor about the findings, leaving the bloody ultrasound probe on its stand which freaks Anna out. After experiencing a miscarriage, Anna tells the doctor that het CT scan has already been performed by Nurse Ivy. She repeatedly insists that Ivy already performed that examination, and the doctor responds that there is no Ivy (nor any nurse matching Anna's description of her) working at the hospital.

Anna started having visions about Ivy, which started worrying Dex. During the follow-up appointment for her miscarriage weeks later, Dr. Hill is taken aback when she discovers a fetal heartbeat. Dex, feeling a mix of happiness and confusion, seeks an explanation. Dr. Hill clarifies that Anna may have experienced "vanishing twin" syndrome, where she was initially pregnant with twins but only one was detected and acknowledged. Dr. Hill speculates that the miscarriage was likely only one of the twins. Detecting multiple fetuses in a pregnancy before twelve weeks can be challenging. The couple departs from the appointment filled with joy. As they reach the parking garage, Anna spots the peculiarly dressed woman she had seen weeks ago, standing at a distance. The woman, who turns out to be Ivy, the sonogram nurse, removes her sunglasses. Before Anna can point her out to Kamal and Dex, Ivy swiftly departs.

Personality and Appearance[]

Very little is truly known about Ivy, but from her antagonizing nature and enjoyment in seeing Anna go mad, it is possible that Ivy has a pemnant for Anna's suffering. She is extremely stealthy, and seems to be intelligent enough to both be a good manipulator, and knows how to disappear. Ivy is a young Caucasian woman with long brown hair and a model face.

Powers[]

Ivy was an elusive witch who was one of the first disciples of the Delicate Coven. She appears to have been bestowed with magical gifts by the The Auteur.

  • Telekinesis - One of the Seven Wonders, the magical ability to move objects with the power of the mind. Ivy was able to propel Adeline towards a wall with a wave of her hand.[1]
  • Transmutation - One of the Seven Wonders, the magical ability to instantaneously move from one place to another. Ivy was able to transmute out of the ambulance. [2]
  • Illusion Manipulation - The magical ability to create, shape and manipulate illusions, causing others to see, hear, touch, smell, and/or taste things which do not actually exist, or cause them to perceive things differently from what they truly are.
  • Immortality - Ivy appears to be immune to all aging, disease and death. However, this power was revoked as Ivy killed Siobhan's son, Dex.[2]
  • Potioncraft - Potioncraft is the ability of witches to create/produce mixtures and substances with magical properties. Given that the witches of the Delicate Coven were able to brew blood potions, Ivy can be assumed to do so also.[2]
  • Spellcraft - Affinity for casting spells and performing rituals.[2]

Quotes[]

To Anna: "Aw. Did you know that Kamal has a child? Sorry had a child. I bet you didn't even think to ask. You selfish bitch."
To Adeline: "Who is to say what is helping and what is hurting?"
To Siobhan: "I-I killed the surrogates human twin for you! I killed my own daughter for you!"
