Penny Dreadful Season 1 Finale

penny-dreadful-ethan_chandlerThis had to be the best episode yet. A lot of the story lines from the season are finished, but they have opened up way for different stories.

Will Vanessa seek to have an exorcism? She’s been asked the question of does she want to be normal? In adolescence that’s all we want to be is normal, but normal doesn’t amount to much. So will she be ok with just being normal?

We knew there was something Chandler was hiding. Now we know why he has such a temper. This was a tough episode for him. He lost his beloved Brona and his father sent men to bring him home. Either his father doesn’t know him very well or the two men really did just underestimate Chandler. They never stood a chance bringing him home. But where does this leave him for season two? It seems that he doesn’t like what he does when he is a werewolf. Not that I could blame him, but it’s not something he can control. It will be interesting to see how the writers interpret the lore on werewolves.

Victor’s creation is getting his bride after all, but we all had a sneaking suspicion it would be Brona. She was dying the whole season after all and somehow it felt like she was sticking around. But what will Chandler think when he finds out what Victor has done with Brona’s body?

As for Dorian, he seems to have fallen really hard for Vanessa. Not something you would expect him to do. The scenes with Vanessa and Dorian this week were amazing. You could feel the awkwardness between them, it felt so real.

What will season two bring us?
