American Horror Story: Hotel is less than two months from its season premiere so that means it’s reveal time! Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, new details about how each season is connected is revealed, along with new character descriptions and cast images have been released.
Season 5 of AHS will feature the standard flashback and current day backdrop centered at Hotel Cortez, a “beautiful art-deco hotel” built in the 1930’s by the “rich and charming but deeply psychotic” James March played by Evan Peters. The hotel is said to be filled with labyrinthine mazes to hide Mr. March’s twisted secret lifestyle.
Present day, glamorous socialite The Countess, played by Lady Gaga, owns the hotel and has her own twisted lifestyle: she consumes blood to maintain her youthful appearance. As if that isn’t enough to get you intrigued, the colorful characters that inhabit the hotel include: fashion designers, models, ex-lovers, a LAPD detective, junkies, and a “Ten Commandments Killer, who arranges victims according to the biblical dictates.” This is going to be GOOD!
In one obvious connection from Hotel to season one aka Murder House, we see Marcy (Christine Estabrook) has been selling real estate long before she met the fated Harmon family in 2011. What other connections will unfold we’ll have to wait and see on Wednesday, October 7. Until then, feast your eyes on these amazing character images below.
Lady Gaga as The Countess: “She’s extremely strong. She’s been through so much. It’s kind of impossible for anything to penetrate her.”
Matt Bomer as Donovan: “He’s very interested in domesticity and sort of nesting and hunkering down and having her to himself every now and then, and that doesn’t go over so well with her limitless hunger.”
Angela Bassett as Ramona Royale: “They [her character and Gaga’s] are powerful women at opposite sides and at odds with one another, each believing that they’re right.”
Evan Peters as James March: “He’s the builder and owner of the hotel from the 1930s, and he is unique. He’s designed a hotel to cater to his specific needs, which tend toward the dark evil.”
Sarah Paulson as Hypodermic Sally: “She’s selfish. She will put a stiletto in your face if it means she can get what she needs. But she’s also like a broken rag doll.”
