Episode 2 of "American Horror Story: Hotel" introduced viewers to the original owner of the eerie Hotel Cortez, and in the coming episodes fans will see more of what led him to become a psycho.

Viewers will also get to see the connection between Lady Gaga's The Countess, and what her connection to Evan Peters' James March is. One of the theories floating around suggests that The Countess is Mr. March's wife, and according to "American Horror Story" co-creator Ryan Murphy, the connection between them will be explored in the next few episodes.

"She does have a very strong connection to him that is also revealed starting in episodes 3, 4, and 5," Murphy told Entertainment Weekly. He also teased that the show will soon introduce the person who turned The Countess into a blood-sucking killer. "Oh yeah, there are there are three episodes about that," Murphy said. However, he did not reveal who will be essaying the character. "It's a big surprise. It's something we've never done so I don't want to say."

Some fans believe Mr. March could have been the one who turned The Countess. All she told Finn Wittrock's Tristan was that the person who gave her the virus was "even more beautiful" than him, and that her maker was long gone. Because Mr. March is dead, there are chances she could have been referring to him.

Interestingly, that's not the only theory doing the rounds. Here is another one: "What about if Mr March and the Countess are not husband and wife but brother and sister? And the countess gets pregnant from his "Maker" which turns her through pregnancy, and when she goes to the murder house to kill that unborn baby and Mr. March notices that he took revenge on Montgomery's family by killing Nora's baby?"

"American Horror Story: Hotel" season 5 episode 3 will be aired on 21 October at 10 pm on FX. Catch a live stream of the episode on
