Episode seven of AHS: Hotel, “Flicker,” gives us what we’ve all been waiting on since the beginning: The Countess’ history.
While Will Drake is breaking ground and walls on the renovations to the Hotel, the construction workers demo through a metal wall and discover an eerie corridor that smells like death. Obviously, for our entertainment, the two men venture into the darkness and are attacked by two zombified vampires. When Iris goes to show the Countess was found – we see the first crack in her icy veneer and know she is terrified.
Episode six of AHS, “Room 33,” finally delves more into the background of the Countess and her weird obsession with the vampire children she keeps in the basement, but does little else for the overall story of the show.
The slow burn of American Horror Story Hotel is starting to catch fire. The fifth episode, “Room Service,” we start to see several things starting to unravel for the worst (but definitely for our entertainment.)
Episode 2, "Chutes and Ladders" is definitely not as jaw dropping as the tantalizing 1st, but rather delves deeper into the characters and begins to establish Hotel Cortez as a complex and independent character itself.
As a celebration of all things October, BGH asked each of our writers to submit a Top 5 list of their choosing. Stay tuned all throughout October to see what these demented folks come up with!
