Good episode.

I hope it's renewed. If it does get cancelled, I hope they fill out the "rising darkness" story arc.

Constantine has more chemistry with the nun than he does with Zed. I thought this episode covered too much plot for one hour, it should have almost been spread out over two episodes.

I liked the episode but the Zed stuff probably should have been cut and placed in a Zed episode. The A and B stories were so far apart it was jarring having them both.

I liked that Manny was upset with Constantine because he didn't ask for Heaven's help before letting a demon into him.

Manny is a hypocrite. He's refused to help other times so why should Constantine think this time would be different?

Spectacular episode of Constantine - the exorcism effects re: the demon who possessed Constantine were amazing, and some of the best I've ever seen in cinema. As far as I'm concerned, the quality of this show is so good each episode may as well be a 1-hour mini horror flick...

Hopefully it'll last beyond this first season, and I'm also hoping we'll find out exactly what Zed's back-story is before this season is over...

Side-note: I was amused that the actor who played Julio in this episode (the little guy who betrayed Constantine @ the jail, and then later grudgingly helped him) was the same guy who played Pedro in the hilarious & now iconic Napoleon Dynamite (2004)

Decent ep. Plus...we got Skank Zed showing her hips and a naked Nun.

It was ... Unfortunately the first hour was like 6 weeks ago. Somehow the idea of splitting a two-parter over a holiday hiatus doesn't work when the show is already on the bubble. Go figure.

That said, good episode minus the Zed storyline. It wasn't fleshed out well enough to make sense.

Oh yeah, naked nun

That was Pedro!? Awesome!
