Penny Dreadful: City of Angels saved their best episode of the season for the finale. Very rarely do shows such as these pull off shocking twists that floor an audience. The cinematography was beautiful, and how the season was left certainly opens up the possibility for a second season. Natalie Dormer and Nathan Lane are a big reason for this season’s success. Let’s hope everyone returns for a second season. With that in mind, here are my top 5 takeaways from Sunday night’s season finale.
5. Great sequence –
One of the better sequences of mayhem on television this year. Love how vibrant the costumes were and the set design. Everything in these scenes worked so well.
4. Redemption –
3. Darkness –
After this, Nathan Lane should just be the guy everyone goes to when they need a detective in their show. He was terrific this season.
2. Setting up season 2 –
They’ve set up season 2 so beautifully with some rich villains.
1. Heartbreaking –
This was one of the single most heartbreaking sequences on television all year. Molly looked so happy to have what she always had wanted … peace.
