Each season is the same: starts off with promise, then all the characters start getting killed, sometimes for dramatic effect just to be brought back to life, and then the season ends and you realize there was no real plot, no story being told -- just killings :-( Read more

5x12: Be Our Guest recap: As Liz lies on her deathbed, she remembers taking over the Cortez after the Countess' death. With Iris, Liz set out to remake the hotel in their own image. The Countess then cuts her throat... read more.

5x10: She Gets Revenge recap: Liz checks in a variety of guests through the day. An elderly couple checks in to kill each other because the wife is dying of cancer and the husband doesn’t want to go on without her. Once they shoot each other, Liz and Iris come in and Liz finds the mutual death beautiful. She explains that they killed themselves so their children wouldn't find them at home, and breaks into tears. Iris tells Liz that they were happy, and Liz says that she feels like she'll be happy again. She can't convince herself that she can live without Tristan, and figures that soon the Countess will slit her throat. Liza picks up a gun and contemplates it, and Iris reminds her that she'll be trapped in the hotel for all eternity if she dies. Reconsidering, Liz lowers the gun and says that her only unfinished business is her son. She always wanted to tell him that she was sorry for leaving her, and that will give Iris enough time to get ready to go. Iris tells Liz that she doesn't have to die alone, and now she knows that Donovan doesn't love her and never will. Liz agrees that they should kill themselves together... read more.

5x9: She Wants Revenge recap: The Countess goes into the section of the Cortez that was walled up, where Rudolph and Natacha were imprisoned. She finds the relics of their past lives that they took in with them when James had them imprisoned, and resolves to take control of her existence... read more.

5x7: Flicker recap: Demolition crews work on the hotel, and Will and Lochlan walk around the hotel. Will says that they're going to stay and he wants to be at the Cortez where he gets inspiration. Lachlan says that he has made some friends, and Will asks his son what he would think if he was with the Countess forever. When his son asks if he still likes men, Will says that adults are complicated and Lachlan approves. A worker comes over and says that they've found a 1" thick steel wall that runs the entire section. Will tells him to cut through it because he's on a schedule... read more.

recap: Alex checks her temperature and confirms that she has the same low body temperature as her son Holden. She goes to Max's room and Mrs. Ellison says that the antibiotics aren't working. She asks if it's time for her to sign a DNR, and Alex promises that she won't give up. As Mrs. Ellison hugs her, Alex glances at the vein pulsing on her throat and hears the woman's heartbeat. Once she goes to get some coffee, Alex goes to a store room and drinks blood from the bags. She throws them away afterward and changes her clothing, and takes a blood sample. Alex then goes back to the dying Max and injects some of her blood into his IV bag. The boy convulses as his heart speeds up, and he opens his eyes wide... read more.
