American Horror Story — Series 5: Hotel — Episode 7 and 8: ‘Flicker’ and ‘The Ten Commandments Killer’

6th May, 2018.

Ohhhh … 

So a video background does work in Photo Booth?

I’m … 

OK, I’m mildly impressed.

But always fancied looking like Max Headroom.

Yeah, I think I’ll have to work on that, won’t I … ?

At any rate … ?

I had a day off, today.

And, as much as I wanted to catch the snooker?

I wanted to catch up with something else I’ve been watching.

You’re right.



Episode 7Flicker — gives us some backstory about the Countess (Lady Gaga).

Seemingly?   She was an actress in 1920s Hollywood, whilst the Cortez was being built: one who was the lover of Valentino (Finn Wittrock), and his wife, Natascha (Alexandra Daddario).

Thanks to that flashback?   We know who turned the Countess into a vampire … 

Who she married after Valentino died …

And who is in the walled up section of the Cortez, discover by modern day workmen.


Episode 8The Ten Commandments Killer — is equally revealing.

Focusing on Detective Lowe (Wes Bentley), who’s quest for answers about the Ten Commandment Killer lead him to Room 64 at the Cortez.

Lead him to Sally (Sarah Paulson) … who reveals exactly what he’s begun to suspect.

That HE is the killer, himself: after being persuaded it’s the right thing to do by James March (Evan Peters): the original Ten Commandment Killer.

Ghost that he is, March is looking for someone to finish what he started … 


Now, I’ll be brief.

These were another two fantastic episode in what — thus far — is proving to be fifth series, of American Horror Story: a shifting cast and crew, great writing, nicely turned out acting — Gaga is doing a good job for a pop singer — and some great design work.


If it wasn’t for the fact I have a long day at work, tomorrow?

I’d’ve been glued to more.
