Lady Gaga Just Interrupted Matt Bomer’s “Hotline Bling” Dance Break on AHS …

‘American Horror Story: Hotel Was Shocking! With The Outbreak Getting Worse, Alex Turns To John For Help On ‘She Gets Revenge’ (RECAP).

At first glance, the name of the winter finale of “American Horror Story: Hotel” could apply to any number of characters: the Countess (Lady Gaga), Alex (Chloe Sevigny), Sally (Sarah Paulson), Ramona (Angela Bassett)… the list goes on. We’re going to have to wait three whole weeks until we get another episode of American Horror Story: Hotel, but thankfully “She Gets Revenge” is primarily a thoughtful and satisfying installment with loads of material that deserves time to sink in.

While the Drake song oddly worked for Donovan’s dance sequence, the other certainly describes better the circumstances of so many people on the show after tonight’s massacre RIP the kids – Somehow, all it took was Alex becoming undead and John managing to take care of the army of bloodthirsty kids for these two to fall back in love with each other. The Countess and Donovan were both murdered by Iris and Liz while the tune of “Hotline Bling” played on in the background. (That’s how I would like to eventually go as well FYI.) And Sally is feeling more murder-y than ever before now that John’s left her to go back to his family. (Sometimes serial killers are just so thoughtless.) However, the most important takeaway, for me, came during the promo for the show’s Jan. 6 episode. But in the end, it’s Iris (Kathy Bates) and Liz Taylor (Dennis O’Hare) who find vengeance, setting the stage for an epic battle in the Hotel Cortez when the show returns in 2016.

While John is the Ten Commandments Killer, he didn’t actually do the killing himself in this case; instead, he allowed Ramona the honor while she is off waiting for whatever is going to come next for her. Still heartbroken over losing Tristan, Liz envies an elderly couple that checks into the hotel so that they can kill themselves and die together on their 60th wedding anniversary. But there was plenty that happened in this week’s episode, so let’s break it down: Even for “AHS” standards, the beginning of the episode was dark. When Liz tells Iris that she’d like to end her life as well, Iris manages to talk her out of doing it right then and there, which would essentially trap Liz in the Cortez forever.

RIP the Countess? – Liz Taylor and Iris are now convinced that rather than dying, their best-case scenario is to run the Cortez and create a new life for themselves. I knew that Sarah Paulson would be reprising her role as Billie Dean Howard from Murder House, but I think Gabby’s guest star appearance has somehow managed to be kept under wraps.

Either way, this was pretty much the best Christmas gift I could’ve been given. (Thanks Santa!) But that still leaves us with a very important question to consider: who exactly will Gabby be playing? But she doesn’t stop her because she’s her friend – she stops her because if she dies with unfinished business she’ll stay in Hotel Cortez forever. We suppose that we should mention that Will Drake is off somewhere being a ghost, just like we also should mention that this episode brought Liz coming together with her son and realizing that she wants to be a grandmother. Now in order to get him to the Cortez, Liz asks Miss Evers to call him and invite him to the hotel in exchange for the ultimate gift – a bottle of detergent that will produce “radiant whites.” Douglas arrives and goes straight to the bar to redeem his free drinks.

The truth is that there were some super-entertaining / super-crazy moments over the course of the hour, but sometimes this sort of stuff only works when it makes sense. She uses her old-fashioned point of view (not a politically correct or even accurate take on transgender people) to make an intriguing point: her son might not be willing to accept his father’s true identity. They finally meet again, although it seems like the boy, Douglas, now all grown up and professional, doesn’t recognize his father, who’s serving him drinks at the bar. March continues to just bark at people to do things, and why we had so much madness with the kids only for their story to have a lame ending like this.

Not only does Douglas reveal that he knew who she was all along, but in a surprising and very well earned twist, he’s also completely accepting of her. He knew Liz was his dad all along, and he’s actually quite accepting of how his father embraced her identity. “There’s always room for another woman in my life,” Douglas says, and all of a sudden it looks like Liz has rediscovered her reason to live.

With her newfound peace, Liz goes to speak with Iris, who has already made her own tribute video “for her three Instagram followers.” Liz convinces Iris not to kill herself, but instead, go out with a “blazing final act” — but more on that later. During their conversation, they rehash everything they’ve been through and come to the conclusion that they abandoned Scarlett and are the world’s worst parents. (Duh.) After finding some common ground, Alex admits that she needs John’s help.

Elsewhere, John (Wes Bentley) completes his ninth kill, which means he has one left until he’s “free.” But first, John wants to see his estranged wife, Alex (Chlo ë Sevigny). The murderous ghost pulls a Mickey from “Rocky” when Lowe asks about his wife, Alex, suggesting, in not so many words, weaken the knees and get in the way of such plans. When Alex and John meet, though, she reveals to him that she is tasked with righting a great wrong — ie, her turning of the boy with measles who is now leading a pack of wild child vamps — or the Countess will kill her and Holden. Donovan swore he loved the Countess while Natacha told the Countess that she loved a “distant memory.” Valentino took out a sword while Natacha took out a knife. They corner John and Alex, but when one young girl dies, presumably from failing to feed, something finally clicks and they realize that they need John and Alex’s help.

The Countess says, “Who’s the little mouse now?!” while Donovan channels Ed Norton in “Fight Club,” saying Valentino, freshly shot in the face, isn’t so pretty now. “I have better cheekbones, anyway,” he adds. “Cheekbones for days.” Decked out like Kim Novak in “Vertigo” or, more recently, Sharon Stone paying homage to Novak in “Basic Instinct,” the Countess pleads for the police’s help in finding her missing husband, Will Drake. Of course, she left him to die in the sealed off wing of the hotel, and she is prepared to take over his empire by way of being the legal guardian of his son, Lachlan. Meanwhile, Donovan and The Countess are going to extremes to get what they want. (Surprise, surprise.) The Countess wants Rudy all to herself, but in order for that to happen, she’s got to take out Natacha. Then Alex told him she was “in trouble” and told him about the outbreak and how the Countess only gave her one chance to fix it or she’d kill Alex and Holden.

The Countess files a missing persons report for her husband and sells the cops a sob story about him going missing shortly after they said “I do.” The police are buying the story until Will Drake shows up in the flesh. Back at the Cortez, Donovan is dancing and singing solo to “Hotline Bling” when the Countess shows up, absolutely flummoxed that Donovan hadn’t left. Will brings up the fact that The Countess isn’t in his will, but she reminds him that he made her Lachlan’s legally appointed guardian so when he inherits everything, she’ll be in control. As the Countess is speaking to a couple of detectives about Will’s “disappearance,” Will saunters in, leaving the Countess uncharacteristically surprised (the reveal almost inspires flashbacks to a certain entrance Emma Roberts made in “Coven”). Unlike some of the more recent episodes, “She Wants Revenge” divides up the screen time and features multiple storylines, two of which pan out quite well.

Donovan said that he set Valentino free and he wanted to be set free too. “He made me everything I am,” the Countess yelled. “And you made me in his image,” Donovan replied. He said he cared, but didn’t mind dying because “dying is the only way you’ll let me love you.” The Countess was pretty moved. “What a beautiful thing I’ve made,” she said.
