American Horror Story Hotel recap: Room 33

Just a heads up, if you haven’t caught up with this weeks episode, spoilers are ahead…

I think it’s safe to say the Hotel Cortez brings the blood. On Wednesday nights episode, a new monster was revealed to us, bringing a deep connection to The Countess. That connection being that the new monster is in fact, her child. We learn about her child in the beginning of the episode when we are taken back to the year 1926 where The Countess pops in to see Dr. Montgomery about an abortion (in The Murder House which was heavily featured in Season 1) unfortunately things go awry for the nurse tending to the procedure…

Week by week we are learning just a little bit more about the mysterious goings-on in the macabre Hotel Cortez. Everyone is starting to serve a purpose here, including the two tourists intent on trying to go see Fast and Furious Supercharged (which is a great little comedy break in a cycle of madness) they learn of their possible purpose with a chance encounter with Donovan which ends in an unsurprising bloodbath.

In other news surrounding the hotel, Tristan and Liz Taylor are involved in a rendezvous unbeknown to Elizabeth (The Countess) Liz for the first time in a very long time, feels she is in love again, although Elizabeth is also involved with Tristan, we are more led to believe Elizabeth’s involvement with Tristan is purely lust – feeling betrayed, The Countess is led to a choice of who she cares most for, Tristan or Liz Taylor? Which of course ends in bloody consequences.
