“American Horror Story” is getting back to its roots, visiting “Murder House” during its current season, “Hotel.”
Ryan Murphy previously said that all seasons of “American Horror Story” are connected, but now there’s confirmation that Season 1’s Harmon family residence will appear in “Hotel.” TMZ spotted Lady Gaga, who plays Hotel Cortez resident Elizabeth, filming outside the Los Angeles residence that stood in for the “Murder House.”
The site also says old-fashioned cars were seen outside, indicating that they’re filming some sort of flashback. Is Elizabeth a former owner of the haunted residence?
The only other major crossover of the series came in the form of Pepper (Naomi Grossman) appearing in both “Asylum” and “Freak Show,” though “Murder House” real estate agent Marcy (Christine Easterbrook) has already made an appearance in “Hotel,” selling the Cortez to fashion designer Will Drake (Cheyenne Jackson).
Dr. Arden (Cromwell), the sadistic doctor in “Asylum,” was also revealed in “Freak Show” to have been the Nazi doctor Hans Gruper who amputated Elsa Mars’ (Jessica Lange) legs back in Germany.
