The Commandments countdown is on!

On Wednesday’s American Horror Story: Hotel, the Ten Commandments Killer will finally be revealed.

Speculation has been simmering to a boil since the season’s October premiere regarding the serial killer’s identity – and some have even floated the idea that Wes Bentley‘s John Lowe, the very detective who’s been investigating the case, is responsible for the horrific murders.

But that’s not to say there aren’t plenty of other options. Heck, half of the damned residents of the Hotel Cortez are vampires whose very existence hinges on bloodshed, including Lady Gaga‘s sadistic Countess, Matt Bomer‘s ousted lover Donovan, foxy revenge-seeker Ramona Royale (Angela Bassett) or bored-and-bitter junkie Sally (Sarah Paulson), to name a few.

And even the non-bloodsucking regulars at the Cortez could have personal motivations for exacting ritualistic atrocities like, say, staging a little extramarital Viagra mishap – yep, we’re looking at you, former married schlub Liz Taylor (Denis O’Hare).

Given how series creator Ryan Murphy‘s wild mind works, we might not even count out the possibility of a supernatural slaying executed by the infamously homicidal guests of that ghastly dinner party hosted by hotel owner James Patrick March (Evan Peters). Seriously – wilder things have happened!

And that’s just the tip of the twisted iceberg. So, before this week’s installment unveils who’s using sacred tablets to inspire his or her Seven-style slayings, let’s open it up: Who do you think will be unveiled as the Ten Commandments Killer, AHS aficionados? Place your grisly bets in the comments.

American Horror Story: Hotel airs Wednesdays (10 p.m. ET) on FX.
