American Horror Story: Hotel: Could the 10 Commandments Serial Killer Be John Lowe Himself?.

Tonight’s episode of showed us the (chilling) backstory as to why The Countess (Lady Gaga) abducted Holden, a dinner party from Hell and what has to be an Emmy-winning performance for Lily Rabe playing serial killer Aileen Wuornos. 1.When Wes Bentley first appeared on “American Horror Story: Freak Show” in the recurring role of Edward Mordrake, he was allowed to keep his clothes on.

The cast of “American Horror Story” is already enormous, but it practically doubled in size for the show’s Halloween — well, “Devil’s Night” — episode. In order to reunite with the “love of her life” Holden, Alex allowed The Countess to feed her the ancient blood virus in exchange to her “undying loyalty.” All well and good but…Anyone else feeling bad for poor Scarlet? Bates got to see Gaga make her spectacularly glamorous entrance — which of course involved descending a curved staircase, “looking through [Bates’] soul” all the while — bedecked in such Lady Gaga staples as fishnet stockings, a thong, a Cleopatra diamond collar, and her hair in the style of Veronica Lake. AHS mastermind Ryan Murphy was similarly awestruck by Gaga’s hosting duties. “The thing about her that I love is that she doesn’t disappoint,” he previously told EW. “Like the other night was a perfect example: She wanted to get together with the cast and she had a decorator come to the house and transport it with black lace curtains and horror themes and she had dyed the pool blood red.

But March/Holmes invited over some real — as in, real-life — killers to the fictional Hotel Cortez to celebrate “Devil’s Night,” the Oct. 30 holiday that celebrates everything wicked in advance of Halloween. John Lowe (Wes Bentley) took a 5-second call while his son Holden was on a merry-go-round, and Mother Monster considered that “neglect” so devastating, it would lead to a “tragic, wasted life.” She also believes she has “saved” all her children and brought them to the Hotel to keep them “safe.” All of this—combined with Hazel’s (Mare Wittingham’s) child-abduction backstory is disturbing enough to make any parent smash their phone into a thousand pieces and start carrying even their largest children in Baby Bjorns. We talk about it often.” The “AHS” set is the sort of place where extras have names like “Man Nailed to Headboard” and the “weirdest things” are overheard, Bentley says. “One time I heard someone ask, ‘Should I chew on his liver before I kill him?’” And then there’s the blood: gallons of the fake stuff that flows from exit wounds, slit throats and severed arteries. Humorously, the Zodiac Killer remained just as mysterious at the banquet as they are in real life — the identity of the Bay Area murderer remains a mystery. Although it all sounds rather nasty, Bentley says the inconveniences are worth it for a chance to work on “the most creative show on television in every department.” One thing you have to say about the show: the cast, which has included Oscar winners Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates — and features Lady Gaga this season — is incredibly loyal to creator Ryan Murphy.

Executed in 1994, John Wayne Gacy was a local clown in his native Chicago, and his affable exterior concealed a dark side of childhood abuse and repressed homosexuality. Gacy was responsible for killing 33 men and boys and hiding them in his basement — which is probably why he felt qualified to give the rest of the killers tips on home improvement. They all stopped by the Hotel Cortez at some point, and he served as a mentor to Jeffrey Dahmer, Aileen Wuornos, John Casey, Richard Ramirez (The Night Stalker) and The Zodiac, etc. I find that a breath of fresh air and so inspiring.” Bentley’s stint on the show also allows him to rebuild the career that started off with such fanfare when he played artistic teenager Ricky Fitts in the 1999 movie “American Beauty” but stalled thereafter as Bentley battled a serious drug addiction that cost him his first marriage to actress Jennifer Quanz. “At 20, I was too young and too unprepared for stardom.

Quietly creepy at the “Devil’s Night” banquet, Jeffrey Dahmer was a serial killer in Milwaukee who cannibalized his victims, hence his constant comments about his appetite. Dahmer specifically targeted men and teenage boys, and his treatment of the victim March quite literally brought to the table served as one of the most unsettling moments in the show’s history — power tools will never be the same. She killed men whom she alleged had tried to assault her while she was working as a prostitute, but was convicted and given the death penalty for their murders — but not before she sold the movie rights to her story, which was adapted into the film “Monster” in 2005. When he did not quake at the secrets of the hotel, Gacy went on to murder 33 boys and hide the bodies under his house. 33 is no small number, but March thought he had the potential for 300 more.

And the last member of the banquet was John Lowe, who may have seemed innocent, but clearly has some form of latent danger to him, or this group of killers would have never deigned to dine by his side. I didn’t know who I was.” Sober six years now, he knows who he is: happily married to producer Jacqui Swedberg and the father of a son, Charlie, 5, and a daughter, Brooklyn, just 16 months old. Aileen Wurnos: This Devil’s Night is “Lucky” 13 for the killer of men from Florida, whose tortured past drove her to commit seven murders in under a year. Bentley speaks openly about his recovery and hopes one day he can formally help other artists with the same demons. “Mostly I want to speak to young artists who might think they should do drugs because they’re creative,” he says. “It’s something I fell into. For the time being, I’m still sticking with the theory that Alex is the offspring of The Countess (Gaga was recently seen wearing a baby bump).

The Master found Ramierez in the middle of his killing spree and offered some age advice that would not only increase the volume of victims, but keep him moving out of the cops’ sight. March did not expect Dahmer to take the advice quite as literally as he did, drilling holes into his victims skulls before drugging them into submission.

What if he didn’t take his eyes off Holden for 5 seconds on that carousel but rather 5 minutes while having some sort of psychotic break? (In case you can’t tell, I CANNOT get over the phone thing. #NightmaresForDays) 4. But when Alexis takes her son back home, his unusual drinking habits not only cost the family their dog, but the illusion that Alexis could make her family whole again.
