AHS HOTEL: ‘Room 33’ RECAP

I hate to admit this but I’ve been searching for points in the season that are going to disappoint me and eventually make me hate the season entirely. But the new season of American Horror Story: Hotel hasn’t done that just yet, and I’m starting to believe that I’m not going to be disappointed with this season. Like any other American Horror Story season, there’s a lot of stories floating around. The writers bring in a lot of characters, and then slowly disperse them or connect them to each other. We’re now in episode six of the Hotel season and things are starting to come full circle nicely. BTW, this recap will have spoilers. BTW, Will Drake has a nice butt.

willdrake-ahs

Lady Gaga: I think everyone had their uncertainties about Lady G filling the shoes of Jessica Lange, but she’s done an amazing job with her character this season. [Confirmed Gaga will return for the next season of AHS- whatever that may be] As the season progresses, I’m more enamored by her character and her motivations. I had a discussion with a friend a few weeks back and we were talking about Gaga being the villain of this season, and whether or not she’s supposed to be. Is she a villain? Should we assume she is mostly evil and a little nice? Or is she just a really complex character that has a good heart. Well, if you watched this week’s episode you probably know the answer to that. And it’s ironic that I was asking that question because I knew right from the start of this week’s episode, Tristan and Liz Taylor weren’t going to make it out alive.

As much as we’ve seen her give life to some characters, and in most cases she literally gave life to them or brought them back to life, she has a sense of ownership over them and she expects them to be loyal to her. She exudes this nurturing motherly figure, but really their happiness isn’t her concern, and her killing Tristan just shows that it’s all about her.

But an important flashback from this episode, 1924 Gaga shows up at the Murder House (season 1) to visit the doctor that everyone’s been raving about – the abortion doctor! Except Gaga isn’t having a baby, she’s having a demon baby. And when the doc pulls it out, it’s still alive and attacks the nurse. The better world would be slaughtered. But I guess since then Gaga has kept this demon baby  – Bartholomew hidden in Room 33, and for good reason that ish is fugly.

Demonbaby-ahs

Bartholomew: Super exciting that the entire time Gaga is kidnapping children around Southern California, she has a real baby of her own locked up in room 33. I mean it’s not a real baby, the face is pretty much torn off, and it has little beady eyes like a shark, but I mean it still came out of her V so it’s hers. We know about the baby because of the flashback, and then we see Gaga saying goodbye to it before she goes to Paris, and then Buffy the Vampire Slayer shows up at the hotel and wants to see little Bart. When Angela Bassett’s character enters room 33, she’s attacked by the demon baby. Also by this point we haven’t seen the demon baby yet. But anyways, John (Wes Bentley) is leaving the hotel after a bloody threesome, and before he zips up his suitcase demon baby hops into it! And then when John gets home demon baby escapes and lurks around the house. Scarlett is downstairs eating popcorn when dad sees the demon baby and shoots at it. Demon baby scurries off leaving a trail of blood. Scarlett gets sent back to her grandmothers, wow Chloe Sevigny is a ruthless mother she didn’t even want to look at her daughter now that she has Holden. Still outside, Chloe sees the demon baby and picks it up and brings it back to the hotel. When Lady Gaga returns she looks all worried and Chloe’s all like don’t worry I saved your baby just like you saved mine. And in the moonlit room Gaga doesn’t look so evil holding her demon baby.

Matt Bomer: Seems pretty useless right now, but he feels the need to preach to the two Swedish girls that died earlier in the season. “Find your purpose” he tells them, and I really hope he’s not quoting Justin Bieber. Ugh.

Liz Taylor: Is in love with Tristan and Tristan is in love with Liz Taylor! Who would’ve thought these two would fall for each other?

Tristan ‘When I come down to the lobby it’s like you’re genuinely happy to see me, I believe you’ Liz Taylor ‘You’re not gay for being with me, I’m a girl. Thank you for seeing the girl’

How cute are they though!? But you know sh**s about to go down because Tristan is Gaga’s boy toy and ain’t nobody going to steal her toys. Liz Taylor knows they’re screwed but he can’t help himself. PS, how much are you loving these 80s beats in the background? Gaga is too busy with Will Drake, until she’s not busy because uh…Will Drake is not a fan of the ladies. One quick text from the Countess ‘Cum up’ to Tristan and he knows he has to go.

iphone-ahshotel

A. I love that Tristan calls her the Countess in his phone book B. His battery is charged fully even late into the night and C. Her spelling.

Long story short, when Tristan and Liz Taylor tell Gaga, she says okay you can have each other. And then she kills Tristan!!! Not shocking but totally ruthless!

AHS HOTEL: ‘Room Service’ RECAP


‘I never knew how to live ‘til I died’, ‘You see everything when the world doesn’t see you’ were just some of the fantastic quotes from this week’s episode of American Horror Story: Hotel ‘Room Service’ This season is packed with different through line stories, but with every great Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk season it’s the beauty in the little things that make it entertaining.

Tonight, much like this week’s episode of Scream Queens was definitely a filler episode, but that doesn’t mean a filler episode can’t be just as cool.

Chloe Sevigny: Let’s start off with her because that’s how the episode starts. She’s sort of recovering from her vampire transformation, she’s doing the best she can with her pasty white skin and that sickly child with the measles. He’s on the verge of death now and so his mother is finally worried about him. But nothing seems to be working to save the kid, so Chloe takes a quick blood break in the nurse’s closet and swallows a few packs of the red juicy juice. Once her mind is back at ease and her thirst is quenched, she heads back to the boys room and injects his iv with her own blood, passing on the eternal life thingy that Gaga gave to her. So the kids magically healed, his mother is super impressed and takes her child back home just in time for Halloween day at school. Yay! Except the kid can’t even make it to school before he needs his blood supply and ends up killing his own mother in the kitchen, right before catching his yellow school bus!

ahs-hotel,americanhorrortstory,ryan-murphy

Angela B: Is back for a quick scene with Matt Bomer and his sickly mother, who is also in the middle of her transformation. (She was about to die but then her son Matt Bomer gave her the power of eternal life) So basically this vampire curse is just floating around right now and everyone is becoming a bloodsucker. This is low key the beginnings of Fear the Walking Dead right now. So anyways Matt Bomer convinces Angela that his mother can infiltrate the supreme Gaga, and they put her to work.

Kathy Bates: Enters the Hotel Cortez in fear of Gaga finding out that she’s been transformed into a blood sucker. She doesn’t want Gaga to know the truth, so she spends some quality time with Liz Taylor and that guy from Glee. Glee hipster and his hipster girlfriend check into the Cortez on the night of Halloween to get away from all the strollers and whiny kids. They want to smoke and chill in peace, and male hipster heard that the Cortez was owned by famed designer Will Drake so they decide to pop in. Kathy Bates is already been done with their hipster vibes and you already know she’s about to get freaky. But it gets better, the two hipsters order some room service ‘grilled romain and pate’ After taking their order Kathy’s about to have a major meltdown when Liz Taylor steps in and decides to help her. They go to the hotel kitchen where Liz Taylor admits that he’s not actually gay, he just wanted to be a woman and then Kathy bluntly says ‘I look at you and all I see is questions’ and so Liz Taylor throws us into his flashback life circa 1984.

ahs-hotel,lady-gaga

Liz Taylor: Aka Nick, a man with a family who worked in a field where he would get to fly all over the world and in doing so stay in his very own, very private hotel room. It would be here where he would undress, and dress as a woman. Except this time, he’s visited by Gaga who tells him ‘You walk like a man, dress like a man but smell like a woman’  She offers to help him become the goddess he was meant to be. Isn’t this Lady Gaga in her true self? I love it. And so Liz Taylor becomes Liz Taylor. And then he tells Kathy Bates to do whatever she wants and to not take sh** from nobody. And she goes right up with some cat food dressed as pate and murders both the hipsters with a wine bottle opener. Classic but so good.

Halloween: One of the craziest moments of the season goes to that random kid who had measles. He goes to school, bites the girl he has a crush on, and then everyone is just going buck wild, murdering their teacher then the principal. The school inevitably goes into a lockdown, but when the special forces arrive they’re looking for a man in a black mask, the kids magically know to listen to the kid with the measles and they’re all about to get away with murder. Take that Viola Davis!

Officer John Lowe: Gets fired for telling his boss about the devil’s night dinner with all the serial killers and has sex with Sally

Chloe Sevigny: Is back at the hotel where Gaga tells her she’s going to spend the rest of her life with Holden, but she’ll also be taking care of the other children. Which means Gaga definitely knows something’s up with Kathy Bates and is going to take her out. The final shot of the episode is Holden and his mother getting into his coffin. Ugh so creeps.

AHS Hotel: “Mommy” RECAP

Last night’s episode of American Horror Story: Hotel was jam packed, and if you haven’t seen it yet, read our live recap below. We tried to avoid spoilers, but we got too excited at some parts. Here is our recap with The Sassy Gay:

———————————————————————————————————-

lady-gaga-ahs-role

@Hollywd_Heroine

Who is he talking to? Ohhhh Evan Peters. Do u think Evan Peters was the drill ass man?

@thesassygay

Oh yea most likely. Tristan is not a good time right now. Thank god for black and white FOR REALS

@Hollywd_Heroine

Friggin’ Naomi Campbell…she’s a bad actress

@thesassygay

Ahhh he’s a ghost man

@Hollywd_Heroine

Yeah yeah

@thesassygay

You were right, he can’t leave. But Tristan can see him why?

@Hollywd_Heroine

He called him, like if he’s in the room and you call him he’ll show up

@thesassygay

Like Edward Mordrake. Okay, I’m really interested to see how this woman [Chloe Sevigny] becomes relevant – maybe to help all the kids in the hotel?

@Hollywd_Heroine

Yeah same she definitely is going to play a big part, she has a voice over? That’s interesting

@thesassygay

Yeah even the detective doesn’t have one

@Hollywd_Heroine

Soulmate? She’s talking about her son. Ryan Murphy has mommy issues for real

@thesassygay

Yeah, she’s happy to be a mother. LOL or very intrigued by the idea of having kids, being a maternal figure. Poor girl Scarlett is telling the truth, we need to listen to kids more

@Hollywd_Heroine

She should’ve told them a more believable story, coffins in an empty pool? Come on girl

@thesassygay

UGH can’t wait for Campbell to peace out – she is AWFUL!

@Hollywd_Heroine

LOL seriously, the irony is really boring ‘ugh models’ like we get it, you’re a model in real life okay

@thesassygay

Lmao in this she’s an “art curator” okay please don’t stretch the truth…and whooop there it is!

@Hollywd_Heroine

Wait so that guy [Max Greenfield] just lives in the mattress?

@thesassygay

Something about that scene made me giggle

@Hollywd_Heroine

Has she [Naomi Campbell] not slept in a bad yet? She’s been there for like two weeks now

@thesassygay

I know she’s dead and bloody but wtf just happened??

@Hollywd_Heroine

Jess B. heard everything!

@thesassygay

OMG EWWW. So Evan Peters can’t leave the hotel so he can’t be doing these murders. He must have a proxy

@Hollywd_Heroine

No it’s definitely not Evan Peters, there’s more layers to this story. WTF is happening to Max Greenberg how convenient…so he can’t talk now

@thesassygay

Of course he peaces out, like was that necessary?

@Hollywd_Heroine

Lol yeah right when he’s about to expose the Hotel I can’t even look at Paulson after that teeth scene

@thesassygay

Sarah Paulson is my favveeee!

@Hollywd_Heroine

Wes Bentley with handcuffs…ALL DAY everyday!

@thesassygay

Honestly Matt Bomer sounds like a baby

@Hollywd_Heroine

I hate that, such a weak excuse blaming his mother

@thesassygay

Daddy issues

@Hollywd_Heroine

Is that Matt? Where is he? Skid Row?

@thesassygay

Ew, that’s gross Matt Bomer, uh oh he’s about to get, ANGELAAAAAA!!!

@Hollywd_Heroine

HAAAAAAY!!

@thesassygay

YAAS QUEEN YAAAAAS!

@Hollywd_Heroine

Angela is baaaaaaaaaaack!

@thesassygay

LMAO she’s like  I don’t want you to be at home

@Hollywd_Heroine

LOL she’s like ya you need to go. I feel like he’s [Wes Bentley] going to become a killer

@thesassygay

For sure

@Hollywd_Heroine

He’s on the edge of glory [wink]

@thesassygay

Oooh, chateau margot, he is too gay to function LMAO and they just called him out on it. hahahaha

@Hollywd_Heroine

He’s so dreamy

@thesassygay

I like Gaga, I think she’s doing a good job

@Hollywd_Heroine

She’s turning gay men into straight. Woah

@thesassygay

Lol if anyone can do it, it would be GAGA

@Hollywd_Heroine

Bernie Madoff?!? lol

@thesassygay

He’s in this storyline!?!

@Hollywd_Heroine

Oh she’s going to marry/kill (maybe f***) dreamy gay rich guy

@thesassygay

Right right I figured that’s her game. OMG Wes Bentley is pulling a Lamar Odom ‘I’m so sick please stay, please stay’

@Hollywd_Heroine

OMG STOP. It’s too soon LOL. But still so good

@thesassygay

She’ll see Holdon now

@Hollywd_Heroine

Woah he remembers her? OMG no Kathy Bates!

@thesassygay

Poor Kathy!

@Hollywd_Heroine

“I want nothing more than the dark silence of death itself” Great line.

@thesassygay

OMG Angela really is Beyonce

@Hollywd_Heroine

OMG is she a vampire to? LMAO She Buffy?

@thesassygay

He has the power of eternal life. OMG I LOVE THIS SHE IS MY HEROO

@Hollywd_Heroine

LOL she’s amazing

@thesassygay

lezbihonest

@Hollywd_Heroine

OMG GAGA IS INSANE. That’s the cutest thing…them over the years!

@thesassygay

Elevator evolution

@Hollywd_Heroine

Ok I’m in love, who is this DMX wannabe?

@thesassygay

Let’s see those eyes up close and personal

@Hollywd_Heroine

He’s DMX but hotter, oh f***

@thesassygay

Omg noooo, the hottie rapper

@Hollywd_Heroine

Woah!

@thesassygay

She’s all about revenge, this is COVEN all over again! Come on

@Hollywd_Heroine

But it’s working, this is the game

@thesassygay

I really like Liz Taylor, she slays. Kathy Bates is passed out on drugs?

@Hollywd_Heroine

This sh** is happening too quickly, where was his epiphany all along?

@thesassygay

I’m glad she said it, because I’m like that is some type of irony

@Hollywd_Heroine

So she’s going to live forever now?

@thesassygay

Yeah, it was a good episode. Thankfully it wasn’t as gruesome or raunchy. I was excited to see Angela Bassett come THRU.But for reals, I think it’s a little dumb that she’s like “imma get back at her ‘cuz she got back at me” it truly is Coven all over again “someone working on the inside, I’mma kill her babies” i feel like she says the exact same line in Coven about the girls on Halloween night. There are so many stories moving at the same time, I don’t even know what the main through line is anymore, it’s like little pockets in each room –but it definitely works for this season

@Hollywd_Heroine

Agreed. I felt like that storyline in Coven worked though, so I’m excited, and realistically those children need to be saved so I’m glad there’s someone actually doing something about it. Or not, she might kill them so we’ll see

———————————————————————————————————-

AHS: HOTEL RECAP!

The Hollywood Heroine teamed up with fellow blogger The Sassy Gay to cover off the first episode of American Horor Story:Hotel. Here’s what we came up with.

ahs hotel,lady gaga,ryan murphy

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Okay so the premiere of American Horror Story Hotel premiered last night with a 90 minute episode, Sass what did you think of it?? Was Gaga all you wanted and more??

@thesassygay

Lol, well HH I know Gaga is central but I don’t think it’s all about Gaga

@Hollywd_Heroine:

No it definitely isn’t, and we saw a whole slew of new characters that are all so cray cray in their own way. Sarah Paulson plays a dead prostitute junkie – Kathy Bates plays the hotel’s front desk clerk AND Matt Bomer’s mom. Matt Bomer plays Lady Gaga’s man, Lady Gaga plays Queen B bloodsucker and Wes Bentley plays the handsome L.A.P.D cop that might unravel this entire thing. So let’s start right off the top, what did you think of the Hotel Cortez??

@thesassygay

I enjoyed it so far. I think that its a definite contender to be one of the better seasons AHS has produced. (Let’s be real FreakShow is defintiely at the bottom of that list) What did you think about the blood sucking aspect anyway?

@Hollywd_Heroine:

We were talking about this before and right off the top Hotel had such a different feel compared to Freak Show and Coven, this season is definitely darker and grimier and bloodier and just all around fu**ed up. Having said that, Hotel Cortez is going to be the perfect backdrop for all this madness. It seems like he’s blending in all these different concepts from different horror films – like the little kid similar to the one that’s in The Shining, and then you have Gaga whose basically a modern day Ryan Murphy version of a vampire, which is really cool right? Minus the sharp teeth, I’m really excited to see where that’s going to go.

@thesassygay

Yea, I’m not really sure if I’m 100% down for the blood sucking aspect to be honest, but it does drive the story – as we see in the first episode

@Hollywd_Heroine:

I mean whatever drives the story forward I’m down for, what did you think of her acting??

@thesassygay

K, I’m glad you asked because I’ve been thinking about it, it may be too soon to say it, but I think I’m gonna go there anyway. I kind of was hoping for a little bit more…crazy? Her character is very demure, well spoken, and just a tiny bit quirky from what we see I think I would have liked to see her go BIG and wild and free. She’s a blood sucking, life giving, slave owning, boss bitch. She can do whatever the f*** she wants

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Realistically, what did we expect? It’s pretty much her first ever acting gig, I don’t mind the character I feel like she’s going to turn up real quick in the season, and I’m also sort of happy that we have her instead of Jessica Lange, that momma matriarch thing was getting old real quick.

@thesassygay

I just think that she’s already set the tone for what side of her she intends to emote in her character and it isn’t quite what I had envisioned. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not asking for an over the top hokey character, just a little more quirk perhaps. I just think that she’s already set the tone for what side of her she intends to emote in her character and it isn’t quite what I had envisioned.

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Yep, let’s remember it isn’t our show no matter how much we would like to run this show. I really enjoyed Wes Bentley’s character, having a cop in the show with a little side drama is very L.A Noir and I’m wondering how they’re going to tie that all into the Hotel, because I feel like he’s crazy himself, like he has a mind of a serial killer right?

@thesassygay

He’s got that piercing look too

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Oh he definitely looks the part I’m already in love with him

@thesassygay

Lol, oh I know. I’m down for Matt Bomer – let’s be real Ryan Murphy gets to cast all the hotties whenever he wants and they’ll all say yes

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Ryan Murphy is gonna be like the Oprah of TV creators…I know you liked that jawline for daaaaaays. But seriously, who’s dead and who’s alive?? Because let’s remember that Kathy Bates pushed Sarah Paulson’s character out the window, and then Matt Bomer’s junkie ass killed himself, or Gaga killed him, so there are some dead people and there are some people that are very much still alive

@thesassygay

Yeah, I definitely think she’s some sort of immortal queen. Iris (Kathy Bates) seems alive, but she could’ve sold her soul for Gaga to save her son’s life. Lot’s of questions, not many answers yet. What are you’re most burning questions you’d want to discover by the end of the season?

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Ooooh I like that theory! I don’t know if I have any burning questions yet I’m just really excited for this show to get even more fu**ed up. Like where’s Angela Bassett’s character? Is Chloe Sevigny really going to play a boring housewife? And OMG what are they going to do for the Halloween episode? Okay, so I guess I do have a lot of questions…

@thesassygay

Definitely, I’m interested to learn a bit more about everybody from the first episode, forget the rest of the star studded cast we are yet to see. ALSO we do see a tie in already with another season of AHS!

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Yes right everyone keeps talking about these damn connections to previous seasons. And we see the real estate agent from season 1 “Murder House”, do you think anything major is going to happen with that connection?

@thesassygay

The Black Dahlia

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Who was that??

@thesassygay

Not only was it one of the most infamous unsolved murders in LA history, its gruesome story of a budding starlet being found completely cut in half. I’m sure they’ll make a connection with the murderer either staying there or the ghosts of past murders being housed in this haunted hotel. Just like in murder house

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Oh wow I don’t even remember. I’ve read that the connection might be Jessica Lange’s fourth child who we never meet in the murder house season…so there’s that to look forward to!

@thesassygay

Jessiccaaaaa!

@Hollywd_Heroine:

Anything else we can cover without giving too much away? I feel like people just need to watch the episode. It was super entertaining!

@thesassygay

Yea check that ish out. This + Scream Queens = turnt up Fall TV season

———————————————————————————–

Tune into FX on Wednesday nights for all new episodes of American Horror Story:Hotel

 

 

SCREAM QUEENS: TURN UP TUESDAY!

It’s Tuesdaaaaaaaay! Which for the next few weeks means Scream Queens which means a sh*t ton of screaming and laughing. If you haven’t already seen the first episode of AHS creators Scream Queens on FOX, you’re missing out on some great TV. It’s sort of like Glee meets American Horror Story, and although I was never a fan of Glee, I trusted that those two shows blended into one would be a firecracker. Not only has the Twitter world accepted their new Queens, (move over Pretty Little Liars), but reviews have been raving abuot the new show that premiered back to back episodes with a star studded cast. Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, Lea Michele, Niecy Nash, along with many others are bringing it on Tuesday nights. Those of us who have work in the morning, this is the most turnt up your Tuesday is going to get.

Check out the recap podcast by Recap Rewind, it’s actually hilarious and a good time. Check them out.

TV Fall Preview

It’s about that time of the year when all the good shows are back in business (exclude: Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black) with a full schedule lined up, it won’t be a surprise when the streets seem a little emptier.

Here are some of the upcoming shows we’re excited about and when you can expect them to premiere:

fox,scream queens

Scream Queens (Sept 22)

The only show on this list that’s a series premiere this season. It is the highly anticipated new series by AHS creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. There’s a murder, there’s a college campus and a bitchy sorority, mixed in with a star studded cast and we’ve got a potential hit on our bloody hands. Look out for Nick Jonas, Emma Roberts and Ariana Grande.

How to Get Away with Murder (Sept 24)

Last season’s explosive and shocking finale left us all wondering who dunn’ it…again! How do these people keep killing people and making it all so shocking? I’m going to blame Shonda Rhimes because she’s the genius behind this show (also Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy) I really appreciated the storytelling of the first season, it’s such a smart show and very thought out. Once you figure out what’s a flashback and what’s not…you’re good to go.

Empire (Sept 23)

empire,FOX,

Arguably the most popular show of last season, Empire follows Lucious Lyon (sort of a Puff Daddy or Russell Simmons persona) as he continues to run his empire with his three sons and cray cray ex-wife Cookie played by Taraji P. Henson. Although the show’s on FOX, okay I really shouldn’t say that because they brought us The O.C and that was the greatest gift from God. But for a primetime show that doesn’t have a big budget like HBO or Showtime, it’s pretty freakin’ entertaining! The writing is borderline soap opera but still fun to watch. And the music is on point people! Also, the drama is always hot and Cookie is always crazy.

Homeland (Oct 4)

I feel like Homeland continuously blows minds, and it has been since the first season. Homeland has evolved into really, a completely different story and I love that the writers were able to do that in the aftermath of a major character death. There is definitely a challenge in keeping this show as entertaining as it is. It takes place in present day, within the confines of reality. It’s not in a mystical world, it doesn’t depend on zombies or dragons to bring that greater than life feel. It’s straight up real world drama, politics, war…and motherhood. Which leads me to Claire Danes, who is phenomenal in this series. I honestly believe she’s crazy in real life, because nobody can play crazy that good and still be faking it.

The Affair (Oct 4)

the-affair

One of my favourite picks from last seasons line up. The Affair also proved that HBO and Showtime are full out going head to head bringing us the most diverse and entertaining shows on our screens. The Affair follows 2 couples, the man from the city falls in love with the girl from Montauk, that sort of thing. But here’s what they did differently, and what makes the show that much better. You know how everyone has their own version of events, or you notice something that the next person doesn’t notice. The Affair cuts between ‘his story’ and ‘her story’ one coming after the other in the episode. They’re never being juxtaposed. And you notice things in his version that never happened in hers. (eg. In his version she is much more aggressive and wants to pursue him even though he’s a married man. In her version he’s the pursuer and she’s holding back) It’s a very unique way of telling the story, even though we’ve seen our fare share of affairs on screen.

American Horror Story: Hotel (Oct 7)

Lady Gaga kicks off the new season of AHS playing a matriarchal figure in the season, aka the boss ass bitch. Which comes at a good time as our usual ‘mama dearest’ role was played by Jessica Lange who left after last season. So what do we know about all the characters this season? Not a whole lot, but we do know there are a ton of new actors filling up roles. Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett are back again, and the whole season is taking place in a hotel. Hello, The Shining, this season is going to be crazy. But I said that about last years Freak Show and it turned out to be my least favourite.

The Walking Dead (Oct 11)

If you haven’t been watching Fear the Walking Dead you’re missing out on a whole new experience in zombie watching. It is such a different show, the world is completely different because we get to see what went down before all the zombies. It’s been nice watching Fear as it’s become like the appetizer dish to the full course meal that is The Walking Dead. So apparently everything’s going down this season, Morgan’s back and those wolf people know about Alexandria. So yeah it’s probably going to be a crazy season. Just please don’t kill Beth, oh right you guys already did that and ruined everything.

Kingdom (Oct 14)

kingdom-season2

If anyone wants to see Nick Jonas perma sweating and half naked this show is for you! But for real, this show has an amazing first season, taking place in an MMA gym in Venice Beach. Trust me just watch it, the drama is all good.

 

So what do you guys think? Will you give any of these shows a shot? Let us know what you think or what you think we should be watching this fall.

AHS Freak Show: 7 Day Countdown

It’s the first day of October, and for some this month can be a horrible reminder of the ensuing winter climate. For others, including myself, October is all about the cool autumn air, sweater weather, pumpkin spice lattes and of course – AMERICAN HORROR STORY!!

American-Horror-Story-Freak-Show

I’ve been waiting for this one since the end of last season’s finale, every season is a new story, a new theme, and an even scarier world to jump into and that’s what makes AHS one of the best shows on TV. (The best in my opinion sorry GoT!) If you haven’t read up on this season yet, here is a quick overview:

Freak Show will be the 4th season of American Horror Story (each season is separate from the other, characters, stories, locations all change with the release of a new season-  so don’t worry about catching up) This season is set in 1952 Jupiter,Florida telling the story of one of the last remaining freak shows in America. Returning cast members from previous seasons include, Jessica Lange (she has announced this will be her last season), Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe,Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare, and Frances Conroy. This fourth season will also include new additions Michael Chiklis and Patti Labelle (playing Gabourey’s mother)

Okay so if that cast isn’t reason enough, Ryan Murphy announced to a fan on Twitter that Jessica Lange will be singing a Lana Del Ray cover. No word on Lana actually being in an episode, but with last season’s Stevie Nick’s cameo chances are high, and our fingers are crossed.

Here is a compilation trailer that someone put together of all the Freak Show promos.

American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres next week October 8th 2014 on FX.

The Dirty on AHS: Freak Show

Just to update my fellow American Horror Story fans, more news on the upcoming fourth season titled Freak Show was revealed at this years Paley Fest.

The entire cast  was on the panel sans the queen herself, Jessica Lange. The cast opened up about their experience shooting in New Orleans, clearly everyone got their freak on as Sarah Paulson explained…they were drunk for most of the time!

The shows co-creator Ryan Murphy went on to talk about the fourth installment. Freak Show will be another period season, taking place in Jupiter, Florida (but filming in New Orleans) in the 1950s. Freak Show will find Lange as a German ex-pat running one of the last standing freak shows in the U.S.

Murphy also confirmed everyone on the panel will be in upcoming season- yes that means more Bassett & Bates! There will also be first season actors making a return, as well as new addition Michael Chiklis who will be playing Lange’s ex-husband and Peters’ father.

All very interesting! Too bad it’ll be another 6 months!

 

American Horror Story: Coven ‘RECAP’

Last night’s episode of American Horror Story:Coven was the CRAZIEST episode by far this season! SPOILER ALERT!!! If you haven’t seen the episode, you need to go home right now and watch it because it was 60 minutes of brilliant television!

Just when you think the episode is over- it’s not…and it unleashed a handful of new secrets. A lot of questions were answered last night so let’s get right into it.

The Axeman

The episode opens up to New Orleans in 1919, the city has a dangerous serial killer/jazz fanatic lurking the streets, he’s out to get women with his axe, especially women who aren’t fans of the jazz. The Axeman reports to the local newspaper that he’s going to kill anyone that isn’t playing jazz music- so of course these sassy witches at Miss Robichaux’s (the cven used to be jam packed with practicing witches) decide to defy the Axeman and play opera instead. When he walks by the  gated entranceway, he finds the gate a little open and decides to walk in. The house is quiet, he walks up to one of the bedrooms, where one of the witches (Meryl Streep’s daughter) is using her tarot cards. She unfolds the last card that has a picture of death, just when Axeman swings his axe, the witch dissapears and reappears behind him, she stabs him and then the rest of her sassy sisters emerge from the darkness and continue to stab the Axeman…killing him. Or so we think.

Zoe’s Putting In Work

Zoe is determined to figure out what happened to Madison, and since the older women don’t seem to be protecting them- Zoe makes it clear to Nan and Queenie that they need to protect themselves. When Zoe’s searching through Madison’s things, one of the bottles goes flying into the closet and points to a secret hole in the wall. In there, Zoe finds an old spirit board. When she brings it to Nan and Queenie, they both refuse to play along because everyone knows nothing comes out of weejie boards. Zoe convinces them, reminding them they are one of the last witches and they need to protect each other. Even if that means finding out where their other witch sister has dissapeared to. The spirit board connects to a spirit in the house, he introduces himself as The Axeman. As if the name doesn’t scare them off, Zoe continues asking questions- like where is Madison? The spirit replies ‘attic’. Zoe goes up to the attic and finds Madison’s dead body in the room. After a brief struggle with Spalding (he can’t fight), Zoe brings up the other girls and they start asking him questions- like who killed Madison? Nan can read his mind, so it’s the only way to hear what he’s saying. He obviously covers up for Fiona and tells the girls that he killed her. Zoe doesn’t believe it, Spalding’s been around witches for a very long time, it wouldn’t surprise her that he’s learned some tricks along the way.

At Misty’s cottage, she’s enjoying her isolation with some more Stevie Nicks until Kyle (Frankenboy) shows up at the door. He’s all dirty so Misty decides to bathe him. During the bath Kyle has flashbacks of his mother abusing him and starts to freak out. He runs around her cottage naked- screaming (more like grunting), smashing things, he grabs Misty’s cassette player and destroys it. That’s it, Misty’s had enough- just then Zoe shows up. Misty is pissed off, which is surprising coming from her because she’s alwas in the weird hippy relaxed state. Anyways, Misty tells Zoe to get Kyle out of there…’He broke Stevie’. But Zoe has a plan, and it requires Misty!

Back at the house, Zoe shows Misty the dead body of Madison. It absolutely stinks, she has a missing arm, and Misty tells Zoe she can’t do anything ‘there’s too much death inside her’ because she’s been dead for too long. Zoe tells Misty to try anyways, Misty tries for a few seconds but nothing happens. Misty asks Zoe to push on her stomach…they’re both using their energy- and then Madison starts coughing- first blood comes out, a few maggots…and then finally a ginormous cockroach. Madison’s first words were ‘I need a cigarette’.

Later, the colour in Madison’s face hasn’t even come back when they start asking her if she remembers who killed her. She remembers seeing red…and then nothing else.

Marie’s secret informant

So who knew that Marie Laveau had a secret informant in Delia’s crazy husband. Turns out he’s not really crazy- he’s just a sworn witch hunter. Whhaaaaaaaaat?! I’m still recovering from this twist, but of course it’s AHS- this stuff is bound to happen. So basically Marie hired Delia’s husband years ago to infiltrate the Salem witch coven and kill them all. He’s a legit witch hunter…and guess who the red head was? Yep she was a witch to. A quick flashback scene shows the red head girl sitting with Delia whose trying to convinve Red she needs to learn how to control her powers. Red has the power of settings things on fire, but she admits she doesn’t want any of it, she just wants to be a housewife with 3 kids. Marie is pissed off at what’s his face for taking so long to kill everyone. She accuses him of falling in love with Delia, he denies it, but maybe it’s true? Marie tells him he better go over there now and bring all their heads to her or she’s going to kill him. Oh and Marie wasn’t the one who burned Delia’s eyes. Marie tells him if she wanted Delia blind, she could’ve done it from her chair. Which is exactly what I was thinking. She’s so above that!

Delia

Delia’s back from the hospital. Fiona and her husband are by her side, but when her man touches her again, Delia sees everything. She says, ‘it took me to go blind to see everything more clearly’- oh the irony. Delia tells him she can see everything, he tells her she’s probably just high from her medication. She tells him to leave the room. Fiona says she wanted to rip his arms out and kill him…but she refrained. Maybe she should’ve because he’s going to be back to kill them! Later, Delia escapes to her bedroom. As she’s getting into bed, the camera moves away from her and we see The Axeman sitting in her room. He tells her that the young witch promised him release- and if he doesn’t get it he’s going to kill her.

Zoe,Nan and Queenie hurry to find a spell to save Delia. Zoe (another reason why she’s supreme) scans the library of spell books without opening any of them. She instinctively knows which one’s going to help her and then proceeds to read the spell. Then,without a noise The Axeman is gone.

He walks out the front door with his briefcase in his hand, walks up to the gate…opens it and walks down the street. So he’s free now!

AHS COVEN: TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE

Don’t forget there’s an all new episode of American Horror Story: Coven tonight!! Things are getting absolutely crazy- Delia’s blind but she can see things clearly now (literally things she couldn’t see before like her husband being a cheating murderer), Marie looks like she’s popped off and is seeking ultimate revenge against the white witches…and most importantly what will happen between Nan and her boy toy? (That last one was a joke but seriously- this episode is going to be cray)

All that and more. Watch.

 

P.S- Where is Evan Peter’s (Frankenstein) and is he going to return to Zoe?? Can’t forget about that.
