Not yet, and it's not looking like it's going to happen.

Really liked this episode. I've been wanting a Chas episode. I also loved how Chas saved the day by blowing himself up with the evil wizard guy.

It is a shame when a show starts off poorly and gets canned just as it is really starting to fire on all cylinders. Correct some of the network's awkward scheduling choices (airing episodes out of order, front loading the lesser episodes, placing the major two-part story line as bookends for a holiday hiatus AND coming back in a different time slot) and this would have turned out differently.

Any chances of somebody else picking it up? SyFy, Netflix, or Amazon maybe? Or will the licensing rights prevent that?

I listened to a podcast this week that mentioned an interview with a network exec. He said something along the lines of "We jumped on the superhero bandwagon and put too much faith in it." That statement tells me they never understood the property or how to properly utilize it.

This was the best episode of the season, it should have been near the beginning when people were still paying attention. Felix Faust should have been wearing a costume of some kind.

The show is dead on NBC, that much is certain. There is always a slim chance some streaming service picks it up, there probably is an audience for it. Changing actresses after the pilot indicated the executives were unsure of what direction to go with this property. The way it was written screams executives were demanding Supernatural with a British lead.

It did get a ratings bump with this episode, but yeeeeeeah, I don't foresee this coming back. I really did like the episode though.

This was a great episode, and even if it is cancelled at least the show seems to be going out on a high note. It filled in a lot of gaps that could have potentially gone unfilled if the show simply ended without any advance notice (Chas' backstory, and reason why Zed is so skeeved out by her dad).

I hope for a save from NBC, like Hannibal got. Hannibal is kind of their artsy baby. While Constantine is really good, it's not as unique.

Are they going to finish the "rising darkness" plot? Or is that meant to be a series-long thing? I hate when I watch a show and it gets dumped without finishing a plotline.

Easter Egg Alert:
On the table I saw a RED JAR, a SILVER WHEEL, and a GREEN BELL.
Those 3 item housed the Demons 3: Abnegazer, Rath, and Ghast.

Hannibal has serious critical acclaim within the industry. Constantine is just another cheap genre show they stuck on Friday. Constantine will need another net to save it.
