Penny Dreadful (Showtime) -- Season 3 Thread -- 5/1/16




Director: Damon Thomas
Writer: John Logan

Guest Stars: Brian Cox, Douglas Hodge, Shazad Latif

Feeling abandoned and alienated by her faith, a shattered and despondent Vanessa (Eva Green) seeks the help of Dr. Seward (Patti LuPone), an American therapist who has an unconventional way of treatment. Meanwhile, now a prisoner under the watchful eye of Scotland Yard Inspector Rusk (Douglas Hodge), Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) is on a train speeding through the desert of the American West. Halfway around the world, in Zanzibar, Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) is confronted by a mysterious Native American man named Kaetenay (Wes Studi) who shares a deep connection with Ethan. Back in London, Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadway) seeks out his old friend Dr. Jekyll (Shazad Latif). With all of her friends scattered around the world facing their own demons, Vanessa is left alone to battle a new evil that has emerged from the shadows.

9 episode 3rd season

Showtime already posted the premiere via Youtube and on demand.


However, the Youtube version is the edited TV-14 version.

I watched it On Demand last night. I assume that was the unedited version. I don't recall any nudity other than in the "last season on..." segment.

I think the only things censored in the youtube/preview version are the breasts on the witches in the previously , a "fuck," and some kind of racial slur.

Awesome premiere. John Logan's writing is simply out of this world good. It's probably the best writing on TV period.

Good start to the season. I felt for Vanessa and I liked the new characters that were introduced in the premiere.

Its a solid start to possibly the best show on TV at the moment. I am very curious to see where the characters head to this season.

By the way, i was waiting for Dr. Jekyl to say at any moment.....

Jekyll and Frankenstein seem like they have a lot sexual tension between them. However, Frank is clearly in love with Lily. I guess he could be into guys and girls. On that note Lily is being really nice to him.

I loved the look of the lab that Jekyll has. Made me feel a little like a Hellraiser movie with Bedlam. Its going to be very interesting to see what they get up to there.

I like the change in scenery that we are being given with the Wild Western being brought in. Gives it a breath of fresh air.

As for Dr. Sweet, well i was thinking it would seem a little too lazy and predictable for him to be Dracula. They do seem to be taking great pains to ensure that he seems an unlikely candidate though, which makes me think the opposite is probably more likely. I wondered if they might bring in a character of Van Helsing some how as part of the group. He would make a great addition.

Update: Only just managed to catch the final 15 mins of this weeks episode. Well guess he is Dracula then. lol

Van Helsing was killed a long time ago. He was an older actor so they could do the kid trick.

Not watched the first season since its airing, so this was lost to history in my mind. Shame they got rid of him.

Van Helsing(David Warner) and Dr. Frank were in an alley talking when The Monster popped up out of nowhere and killed Van Helsing. Monster was pissed that Dr. Frank was dragging his feet in creating his bride and threatened to kill more people Dr. Frank knew if he didn't get his ass in gear.

Oh ok. I do recall the monster killing a few people in season one, but a lot of that season has not stuck with me for some reason. Its a shame they killed him off so easily, and made him an old guy at that.

Yeah, this is just crazy awesome.

I wonder if we're going to be getting some kind of twist where the guy we think is Dr. Jekyl is actually Mr. Hyde.

Also nice twist at the end there where we find out that "John Clare" was Vanessa's orderly at the nuthouse. I'm guessing that she is responsible for his death.
