Critic Consensus: Angela Bassett shines as Ramona Royale in "She Wants Revenge," but her story arc feels forced this late in the season of Hotel.

Critic reviews for She Wants Revenge
American Horror Story is a show whose heart has started pumping again, back from the seeming dead, and it's worth our time to try to unravel its humanity from its silliness.
It's a battle royale between children and parents (and technically, grandparents) and since age over beauty really doesn't apply, it's a pretty good cliffhanger as we wait to see who gets the ultimate revenge.
This week, we see Countess's true motives and her plans to enact revenge on those who've scorned her. Oh, and the escaped group of vampiric school children is still on the loose. But don't worry, they're doing just fine.
Everyone makes mistakes, but in American Horror Story's case, it seems like its own mistakes could have been solved with a bit more planning and foresight. There's a lot of holes left in this Hotel with not a lot of time to fill them up.
