As soon as we rolled up to the Murder House, I just knew this was going to be something special. American Horror Story Hotel just blew my mind yet again by taking us back to the Murder House in 1926 when the Montgomery’s were running a home abortion clinic out of their basement. Charles Montgomery returned to the action as well, this time for a meeting with The Countess, and it was oh so good to finally go back to the house that started it all.
But wait, there’s more. A lot more. So much shit went down during Room 33 and our story has changed dramatically since we checked in. One of our main characters ended up very dead at the end and even the Swedish Meatballs returned for some fun at the Hotel Cortez. And really, isn’t that why we all got hooked in the first place? This series is very good at telling a story and they can literally change up an entire season with one episode. I love the unpredictability and I especially love watching these stories take a turn for the bat shit crazy. Room 33 was one of those episodes.
Plus we also learned a whole lot more about the thing that lives in Room 33 and it made a lot of sense, even with the 1926 connection to Murder House. I was surprised and entertained throughout this episode although I will admit there are some stories that are getting a little too repetitive for my liking, right John Lowe?
Still, Room 33 may have been the best episode of the season up to this point. So quick, get aboard the crazy train (or the Fast and Furious ride if you prefer) and enjoy the review, fellow guests.
