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!

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.

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

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.
