Last night "American Horror Story" returned with a whole new plot, but can Lady Gaga and the new crop of brunette menfolk make up for the Jessica Lange's absence? Perhaps. Here's what happened.
Onto the rest of the "American Horror Story: Hotel" players.
Enter good cop John Lowe, played by Wes Bentley.
The FX version wasn’t crazy inspired, but if you enjoy immortals that like to get dressed up for kinky romps before devouring their prey, well then yes, this hits all the vamp sweet spots. The entire scene is set to “Tear You Apart” by She Wants Revenge. Back at the hotel the impossibly good looking couple of Matt Bomer and Lady Gaga get ready for a night out. Dressed in ensembles only the criminally attractive can pull off, the two saunter off to Hollywood Forever Cemetery, where apparently their super power is never having to wait in lines to watch movies next to drunk millennials.
More cast is ushered into the Hotel Cortez. Cheyenne Jackson enters as Will Drake, who has bought the Cortez with his son thanks to past "AHS" character Marcy (the Realtor who sold the Harmons the Murder House from season one). Why? Because he can't hear New York city sing anymore, which is apparently a thing. The two new faces check in. This prompts Lady Gaga to show Will's son her secret kid room full of candy and 80s video games. Inside this secret room of Tetris and sadness, there's something else: the detective's lost son Holden. There is really nothing else to say about that scene that other than it exists.
