Constantine (S1E12) -- "Angels and Ministers of Grace" -- 2/6/15




"ANGELS AND MINISTERS OF GRACE"

02/06/2015 (08:00PM - 09:00PM) (Friday) : AN ANCIENT EVIL RESURFACES IN A HOSPITAL - When John (Matt Ryan) heads to a local hospital to investigate a mysterious attack, he enlists an unwitting Manny (Harold Perrineau) to help him. Meanwhile, a health scare causes Zed (Angélica Celaya) to question the source of her visions. Charles Halford also stars. TV-14 V


Episode 12 of 13


This was not among the shows renewed by NBC this week. Next week is the season and quite possibly series finale. I wouldn't expect a clean ending as they wrapped filming a few months ago.

I won't be surprised if it doesn't get renewed but I will be disappointed nonetheless.

It was kind of random how they found the guy causing the problems but I liked the episode. This was pretty much the Manny episode. So each major character has had a episode. I think they should have a episode without Constantine and just have Chas and Zed save the day. Hmmmm I guess that can't happen since there is just one more episode. Oh well I hope the episode is really good.

Another awesome episode.

I hope they give it a wild-card renewal (I remember nobody thought Hannibal would come back). But who knows.

Is the black diamond what gives Eclipso his power?

According to articles around the internet: yes.

Yes. I don't believe they referenced him in the episode.

This show has no chance of returning. I am not completely heartbroken about it, Constantine was fairly cookie-cutter entertainment. They cast John Constantine correctly but most of the show felt very shallow.

They signed their own cancellation notice when they didn't invite me on for a guest spot.

word going around is that there's a potential of it moving to syfy, but who the fuck knows. I just know it's not coming back next season on NBC

Syfy would seem like a good fit, but that channel has been a shitshow since Battlestar Galactica ended.

I'd love for that to happen, so long as the show continues. That and I would be so happy to see them use the Hellblazer title.

Their current development slate looks pretty interesting. A lot of actual Sci Fi on the horizon.

It does appear that NBC softened on the no-smoking policy deep into Constantine's first season. No one really mentioned it but he does smoke on screen in a couple of different shots.

Loved this episode.

Even though Manny should stay limited, I liked him being around for a bit more than usual.

I would take the news that it could move to SyFy with a grain of salt right now. It sounds a lot easier than it really is. The show is produced by a different studio (WB) and there are many factors to take into consideration. Budget, licensing costs and potential cast reduction/pay cuts. SyFy doesn't have the budget that NBC does and it's more than likely they would ask WB to a much reduced cost to produce it there.

It's a pie in the sky scenario. Even a Friday night, low-rent network thriller like Constantine costs far more to produce than anything Syfy currently airs.

Oh well, I guess we're never going to see someone put on Fate's helmet now...
