She Gets Revenge

23 Dec 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

American Horror Story continues with her desire for revenge.

American Horror Story: Hotel aired its midseason finale on Wednesday and viewers were left wondering about the fate of The Countess following a bullet-riddled final scene.The tenth episode of this fifth iteration of American Horror Story is titled “She Gets Revenge.” It’s not initially clear which “she” we’re talking about here.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. With Drake’s Hotline Bling playing in the background, Liz and Iris walked with determination toward The Countess and Donovan with guns blasting in both hands.

As their guns fired and bullets flew at the shocked couple, the episode ended, meaning fans of the hit FX show will have to wait until to discover their fate. 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. A no stranger to “American Horror Story” after starring within the fourth installment, she apparently plays a guest at the titular hotel.In a preview for the subsequent episode of “AHS: Hotel”, Liz Taylor & Iris come up an evil plan for Sidibe’s character as shortly as she arrives at the hotel. “Dinner is served,” Iris states.

Keen to get her affairs in order, Liz asked maid Miss Evers to invite her estranged son Douglas to stay, who she hadn’t seen since she left her life as a man behind 31 years earlier. ‘I guess he’s out of my mind. 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. I’m in town because we’re finally going to reconnect,’ Douglas replied – but then turned down another drink and left the bar. ‘Dad, it’s not difficult, or it doesn’t have to be,’ Douglas said. ‘Mom gave me a few clues and I put them together. After a poignant but still sick intro featuring an elderly couple who decide to end each other’s lives in the Cortez, Liz Taylor is struck with the inspiration to off herself, as well. That you’re a serial killer? ‘I didn’t really think you’d brought me here to rummage through your old clothes and I’m not interested in your cast offs anyway, though I know you’re very interested in mine,’ Natacha told The Countess.

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. Donovan, meanwhile, came face to face with love rival Rudolph Valentino and told him: ‘You wouldn’t last two days with The Countess in the real world. 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.

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. Hazel calls up Liz’s boy and gets him to come to Los Angeles for a few nights free at the Cortez. (You may ask yourself why on Earth Liz would bring her son to a Hotel Hell filled with serial killers and ghosts and killer ghosts and viralized hedonists.) In return, Hazel asks only for some updated cleaning products.

He wants to be a grandmother some day, and as Iris starts getting ready to die, Liz tries to talk her into taking over the hotel. “We’re entitled to a second chance,” Liz says. “The best is yet to come.” John Lowe is only one trophy away from completing his 10 Commandments collection. 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. Rudy pulls a sword on Donovan, who does the Indiana Jones thing and just shoots his romantic rival. (Gaga does the same with Natacha, when she pulls out a knife.) Donovan doesn’t mourn his rival’s death “I have better cheekbones anyway,” he says. “Cheekbones for days.” Meanwhile, our pal John Lowe has gone cuckoo crazy. 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. 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. March, who pulls a “told ya so” on her for having him killed on the premises. (Ramona still lurks in the sealed-off wing, by the way, and, thanks to John and Alex, she gets some company in the form of the bloodthirsty version of Our Gang that had been rampaging through Los Angeles, courtesy of John and Alex. Will she take control of his empire? “I thought I’d dissolve the empire,” she explains. “Convert it to cash.” Oh, she’s not on the will, but she is little Lachlan’s legal guardian until he turns 18.

The vengeance-minded blaxploitation star sees a spread of fresh appetizers.) Speaking of Will’s body, the Countess wants it out of there before it gets too “ripe,” so she asks Donovan to do it — and to lock up Ramona once again. It’s clearly another ruse, and she wants to somehow lock Donovan in there, too, but before she can talk him into it, he reveals that Valentino is long gone. 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”). Well, half-kindle: She still wants a divorce, but she sees something solid behind John’s eyes now. “You finally got it together, John,” she says, before leaving him for the evening. (The Season 5 Derriere Club welcomes Chloë Sevigny!) Sally’s not so happy about this. “She doesn’t know about you,” she tells John. “Not the way I do.

Doesn’t he find it weird, that his father is a woman? “I really learned something when Pedro died, on The Real World,” says the son. “And I kept learning. Alex walks out hand-in-hand with John, little vampire child Holden with them, and they go back to the outside world, leaving Sally screaming behind them.) In the penthouse, the Countess calls upon Donovan. Gaga goes to see if this is true — leaving Donovan to dance himself silly to “Hotline Bling,” the greatest song ever written, the greatest dance ever danced.
