For four seasons, Evan Peters was the tortured love interest on American Horror Story. But Ryan Murphy broke the mold in Hotel by turning the doe-eyed actor into Mr. March, a fast-talking serial killer with a heart of coal.

Maybe it's all the years we've spent crushing on Peters already or maybe we just need therapy, but dammit if we aren't still in love with him in Hotel! Sure, Mr. March may be evil, but that doesn't mean he ain't fiiiiine. Here's why we just can't resist him:

A definitive American Horror Story timeline

The way he hops when he stands


The way he dreams big


The way he knows the real you


The way he's such a gentleman


Even if he creepily smells your hair sometimes


The way he always takes care of you


The way he leaves people hanging


The way he can't conceal his excitement


The way he uses outdated lingo



The way he looks when he gets slapped


The way he looks right here


The way he doesn't understand technology


The way he's not afraid of commitment



The way he begs


The way he's so dramatic


And knows it!


The way he can't sit still


The way he'll give you a noogie, but then fix your hair because deep down, he's always looking out for you, so who cares if he's a serial killer?

American Horror Story: Hotel airs Wednesday at 10/9c on FX.
