We’re less than two months away from the premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel, and we’re finally starting to get some details about everything that’ll be going on in the Hotel Cortez. It should surprise exactly no one that some of those details are extremely disgusting, but I bet nobody expected this season to involve a serial killer who uses a dildo as a murder weapon. And if you did, you should be locked up.
Lady Gaga’s hotel owner, called Countess, has got some sadistic intentions of her own, but for now, let’s focus on the current task at hand for Wes Bentley’s Detective John Lowe, whose grisly murder investigation leads him to the central establishment. One of his targets is dubbed The Ten Commandments Killer, which we hope takes some kind of cue from Se7en, and here’s a description of his second suspect, according to EW.
One obvious question that arises is: is this a dildo that can be fit onto a drill and used to beat people with? And the other: is this a dildo that is made out of drillbits and used to beat people with? I think the beating people part is an obvious one. Unless this really is like Se7en and there’s some other form of weaponry attached to it that makes sex a deadly act. I’m really not sure which one I’d prefer. Does this guy have something to do with the most disturbing scene of the entire series? Maybe so.
This sounds like the character that was being hinted at through one of the recently released teasers. I’m not quite sure why the guy doesn’t have a mouth or eyes, but it probably has something to do with why he’s a murderer now.
Not surprisingly, Lady Gaga also has a big part to play where bloodshed is concerned in the show. She, her jilted lover Donovan (Matt Bomer) and new lover Tristan (Finn Wittrock) are all bloodsuckers, though not in the way of traditional vampires. Murphy calls it “a form of hemophilia, in a way,” and says that it will be explained (or something like that) near the middle of the season. You can bet that there’s some sex involved with the trio’s brand of murder. In the image below, you’ll notice that Countess’ gloves are rather extravagant, and they’re actually the character’s main weapon, as the nails have diamonds on the edges that she uses to slice people’s throats.
We know the show will tie into Season 1 for at least one episode, so maybe we’ll get to see Gaga use her nails on someone from another season somewhere down the line. We’ll find out when American Horror Story: Hotel premieres on FX on Wednesday, October 7.

His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
