Get ready to freak out, American Horror Story fans. In this week’s cover of EW, we not only take you inside the the latest iteration, Hotel, starring Lady Gaga, but find out some incredible new details. There are pseudo-vampires, gruesome murders, and Naomi Campbell. But the most awesomely, jaw-dropping twist? AHS: Hotel is connected to the first season! “We do go to the Murder House for one episode,” teases co-creator Ryan Murphy of season 1’s ghost-filled abode.

And the connections don’t stop there: Marcy (Christine Estabrook), the annoying realtor who sold the Harmons family their haunted home, appears in Hotel! Naturally, she’s the real estate agent for the similarly horrific Hotel Cortez. In the image above from AHS: Hotel, she shows the property to fashion designer Will Drake (Cheyenne Jackson) and his son.

Murphy already revealed to EW last year that each season of AHS were tied together. “They’re all connected,” said Murphy last October. “We’re just beginning to tell you how they’re connected. They’re all very separate but there’s clues every season that we’re now telling you how the different worlds are intertwined.”
So the big question is, Who is Marcy exactly? Just a lady with some truly terrible listings? Or Satan’s realtor? And why are people still hiring her?!?! Let the conspiracy theories begin.
