Of all the things you might expect from tomorrow night's finale of American Horror Story: Hotel, a flood of emotion resulting in some very real tears might not be one of them.
But without giving anything away, it's worth noting that Hotel might just have the most emotional finale of all of the seasons—at least for one character in particular.
The finale, which gives fans a good idea of where all of the notable characters end up (even Darren Criss' hipster—though he isn't seen), also offers up some stunning performances, including what might be Sarah Paulson's best work on AHS to date (and yes, that's saying something), as she plays two characters in this one episode: Hotel's Hypodermic Sally and the return of her AHS: Murder House character, Billie Jean Howard, a renowned psychic.
Some surprising faces from earlier in the season also return, so you'll definitely want to watch it live so as not to spoiled. (Or stay off social media until you do.)
The final episode also further confirms what has been evident all season: Denis O'Hare and Sarah Paulson deserve Emmy wins for their performances on Hotel. They both give particularly jaw-dropping performances in this final hour, providing such raw emotion you can't help but feel exactly what they feel.
Hotel also just scored a Golden Globe win for Lady Gaga in the Best Actress in a Limited Series Category on Sunday night, and Ryan Murphy told us exclusively that he's begun telling the cast who they're playing next season. No word yet on whether Gaga will be back, but Murphy asked her publicly via Twitter before Hotel even premiered in October.
"I was just so thrilled for [Gaga]," Murphy told us after her Globes win, "because I think it's something she's wanted since she was a child, to be an actor. When I first spoke to her she said, ‘I wanted to be an actor before a musician, but I always tanked my auditions because I was too nervous.' I said, ‘OK, I won't make you audition, I just want you to do my show.'"
American Horror Story: Hotel's finale airs Wednesday on FX at 10 p.m. Bring a tissue!
