So, I was able to watch a screener of the second season premiere of [Penny Dreadful](series:817319) and all I can say is WOW! If you don't want to know anything about the premiere that airs on May 2nd, Please do not read any further.
The season kicks off with an opening scene of Vanessa Ives walking in a park and watching children play in the snow, suddenly she is compelled to start chanting a strange language, the screen pans out and it seems that Madame Kali is the one controlling her from afar. It seems that Madame Kali will play one of Vanessa's main adversaries this season.
There is also an introduction of Madame Kali's associates, witch (pun intended) in the series are referred to in this episode as The Night Comers. These are some pretty vile looking witches that are presumably part of Madame Kali's coven. They attack Ms. Ives and Mr. Chandler in a most gruesome scene in there coach. I will not divulge everything, as there is still a lot to take in this episode and is SO worth watching even if you are reading this.
Meanwhile, The Creature searches for employment and may have found his calling in a wax museum that is competing with Madame Tussaud's wax manage-re, in my opinion a perfect fit!
The good Dr. [Frankenstein](movie:665601) in the meantime is doing his community a bit of service by providing his Creature a soul mate, or perhaps not, only time will tell. I must say that the imagery and overall feel of this show is absolutely wonderful.
In closing, the forces of evil continue to wage war against the characters, I was quite surprised that Dorian Grey did not make an appearance in this episode, but i can assure that we will see him and many other cool characters in following episodes. So who will be an excellent edition to the show? We have witches, The Wolf-man, Dorian Grey, Had Dracula last season, and Frankenstein and his Creature. Whoever it is, I am sure they will be introduces in the unique way this show has been true to. Here are some ideas. What do you think?
