We’re just about halfway through American Horror Story: Hotel and Episode 7 looks like it’s going to be a real doozy.
As we saw in the last episode, Alex was adept at convincing John that he’s experiencing a psychotic break. And in the preview for next week, it looks like John has resigned himself to some form of medical intervention. Though, I’m not quite sure how well that’s going to work out for him since he’s still very obviously fixated on the Ten Commandment murders. In fact, the preview shows him enlisting the help of a young girl to find the killer.
Meanwhile, contractors make headway in what looks to be some of the untapped parts of the Cortez. Could Will Drake be going forward with renovations? If so, he might end up regretting it. As doors are opened and walls knocked down, the contractors for hire are attacked by rotting, dust-covered undeads. Perhaps the renovation plans will blow the top off of the hotel’s best kept secrets…
And might we become privy to how the Countess actually became the Countess? In what looks to be a flashback, she’s swarmed by two figures in a church asking her to join them…forever.
