Ramona Royale is finally ready to exact her revenge on The Countess. Will she get what she wants, or will The Countess be able to stop her?
Read on to find out with our recap of AHS Hotel 1×09, “She Wants Revenge.”
The Countess and Drake are discussing the details of their marriage ceremony. While Will has something big in mind, his fiancée would rather have a simple, intimate ceremony. Unfortunately, Drake sees this marriage as a big, fashionable event. The Countess insists on something intimate and so Will agrees to let her manage the details. She asks Liz Taylor to take care of the flowers’ delivery, but Liz states rather “gently” that he will not raise a finger to help her. The Countess killed his true love, after all, but The Countess feels that as a betrayal.
In the meantime, we find out she has hired a private investigator to find her true love, Valentino, who left the Cortez after he was freed from the trap March had set for him.
She also let Donovan back at the Cortez as her lover. He asks her to promise him that he will be the only true love in her life, and she swears it. She tells him that she’s going to get married and that she’s going to be a widow right after. A very, very rich widow.
Iris is a new person, strong and confident just like Donovan would love her to be. When they meet at the Cortez after she killed three guests because why, she can do that now, Iris tells Donovan about the problem she had with The Countess’ son Bartholomew, how The Countess was furious and she wants the responsible to be found. So Iris told The Countess about Ramona. Donovan tells her mother not to worry, that he made The Countess think he’s back with her and madly in love.
Mrs. Evers tries to warn Drake not to marry The Countess, because the moment he becomes her husband, he’s a dead man.
Donovan goes to Ramona to tell her everything that happened so far with The Countess, and he tells her that if she wants to exact her revenge, it has to be before The Countess marries Drake.
Alex manages to find the kids responsible for the school’s massacre. They are all craving blood. She wants them to come with her to Hotel Cortez, but they refuse to be told what to do by adults.
Once Donovan convinces Ramona that she has to act immediately if she wants to kill The Countess, they go back to the Cortez. But Donovan, instead of helping Ramona to kill The Countess, takes Ramona as a hostage inside the Cortez. AHS Hotel 1×09 is getting really dramatic! She tells Iris that The Countess loves him and that all her enemies are his enemies. Iris warns him, he’s going to die soon.
In the meantime, The Countess tells Valentino that she’s working on creating a secluded world only for the two of them. Valentino despises the modern world, and The Countess promises him that when she will become rich, the Cortez will become a fortress against the modern world.
Donovan sees The Countess leaving Valentino’s hiding place.
The time has come, Drake and The Countess are finally husband and wife. While his wife gets ready for the honeymoon, Drake meets March at the hotel’s bar, and March decides to tell him about The Countess’ (and his) son, Bartholomew. He brings Drake into his room. Drake is disgusted by what he sees, and when The Countess arrives and sees his reaction, she decides that she’s going to kill him before the honeymoon after all.
At the end of AHS Hotel 1×09, Drake finds himself in the same room with Ramona, who asks him to free her. They find out they are trapped inside the part of the hotel that used to be Valentino’s trap for so many years. Drake freaks out while Ramona, more practical, kills him so she can drink his blood while Mrs Evers can watch with a “I told you so” face, and The Countess enjoys the scene from a security camera.
