Penny Dreadful Episode 3: A Glimpse at Classic Horror

4-penny-dreadfulLast week the preview promised lots of excitement, but the third episode fell short of the preview. This week was a lot more story driven.

A lot of the episode revolved around Frankenstein and why he started trying to bring the dead back to life and we got to know his first creation.

The rest of the episode was about Sir Malcolm and Vanessa still trying to find Mina. And they will stop at nothing to find her.

Ethan’s been sucked in again because of Brona, the young woman who he is crushing on that has consumption. He wanted money to buy her medicine and he knew he could go back to Sir Malcolm and Vanessa to find work. But now that he’s learning what depths they will go to find Mina, he has a decision to make. Will he continue on this journey, even though he doesn’t agree with everything they are doing, or will he walk away? Vanessa said there’s no turning back now.

Depending on how much you know about classic horror stories, you will notice them weaving in and out the show’s storyline.

So maybe there won’t be as much as excitement from week to week like the premiere episode, but the story sucks you in and keeps you wondering what will happen next.

Check out the preview for next week’s episode:
