John Logan's tremendous Penny Dreadful concluded for good with a double-bill full of stand-out performances...

This review contains spoilers.

3.8 Perpetual Night & 3.9 The Blessed Dark

Following the announcement earlier this week that the third season would be Penny Dreadful’s last, the show closes on a double bill of Perpetual Night and The Blessed Dark. Dracula feeding on Vanessa has, as foretold, brought an unholy fog down on the world that is killing London’s residents. The night creatures are also on the prowl and it is into this city that Ethan, Sir Malcolm and Kaetenay arrive to find Vanessa. They’re not alone in their efforts, joined by Catriona and Dr Seward. Frankenstein has to decide whether he will force the serum upon Lily whilst Dorian clears his house of her army. John Clare’s slice of domesticity proves to be all too brief and the »

‘Penny Dreadful’: Why This Great Series Finale Shouldn’t Start a Trend

20 June 2016 1:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Penny Dreadful” creator John Logan is an expert at endings. From big, sweeping dramas like “Gladiator” and “The Last Samurai,” to ongoing stories like “Skyfall” and the first two seasons of “Penny Dreadful,” Logan is a writer who always seems to hit his mark in the end.

That’s why it comes as no surprise that Sunday night’s Season 3 finale of “Penny Dreadful,” “The Blessed Dark,” was a terrific episode of television – with one glaring exception.

What more could one ask for in a series finale? Simple: that we knew going in it was a series finale.

Creator John Logan and Showtime’s David Nevins on the Decision to End ‘Penny Dreadful’

20 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This post contains spoilers about the season three finale of “Penny Dreadful.”

Two words appeared on the screen at the end of “The Blessed Dark,” the season three finale of the Victorian horror series “Penny Dreadful”: “The End.” As it turns out, the season finale of the Showtime drama (which was recapped here) was also its series finale. Vanessa Ives died in the last episode of season three, and the show will not return.

Variety spoke to Showtime president David Nevins and “Penny Dreadful” creator John Logan about why they made the decision to end the show after making a grand total of 27 episodes.

“That’s where television is now,” Nevins said. “We don’t have to make seven seasons for the sake of making seven seasons. Some shows are built for that, and some shows aren’t.”

“I was just joking that Flaubert said ‘Bovary, c’est moi.’ And »

Penny Dreadful Season Finale Review: The End

20 June 2016 2:42 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Is this truly the end?

The title card reading "The End" would seem to indicate without a doubt that, yes, the two part finale event comprised of Penny Dreadful Season 3 Episode 8 and Penny Dreadful Season 3 Episode 9 was actually the series finale.

As disappointing and downright traumatizing as that would be, I have to admit that these two hours did nicely tie up nearly every plot point in the series. It felt very series finale-ish.

Watch Penny Dreadful Season 3 Episode 9 Online

First, the elephant in the room (review) – Vanessa died. Voluntarily. At Ethan's hand. It was heartbreaking and tear-jerking, but ultimately, it made sense.

We'd already seen Vanessa reckon with what she was. We'd already seen her come to terms with the fact that she could never be a "normal" woman. Nor did she want to be, any longer.

Performer of the Week: Outlander's Caitriona Balfe

28 May 2016 7:56 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Caitriona Balfe

The Show | Outlander

The Episode | “Faith” (May 21)

The Performance | Note to Best Actress Emmy presenters, whoever you turn out to be: Balfe’s first name is pronounced “Katrina,” and you’re going to need to know that if Powers That Nominate have even passing knowledge of Saturday’s Outlander. Because Balfe turned in a performance that was raw and almost too real, diving to the nadir of Claire’s grief over losing her child and then staying there for an hour that was emotionally exhausting — in the best possible way.

Eva Green's performance is astonishing once again as Penny Dreadful flashes back to Vanessa's troubled past...

This review contains spoilers.

3.4 A Blade Of Grass

A Blade of Grass follows immediately on from the reveal of the last episode; John Clare was the orderly who worked at the Banning Clinic in which Vanessa was confined. The hypnosis with Dr Seward continues and it’s time for the traditional Vanessa flashback episode, here delivered through her therapy with the good doctor. During her hypnosis, she becomes trapped in her memories, unable to awaken from her state without first working through her trauma. The orderly is her only company and the pair form a past relationship that will have further consequences in Vanessa’s present.

There’s a nasty claustrophobia to A Blade of Grass, all close-ups and odd angles designed to disorientate and unsettle the audience. The score »

Set almost entirely in the Banning Clinic, this week’s Penny Dreadful, “A Blade of Grass,” not only explored Vanessa’s heartbreaking relationship with the orderly who would become the Creature but also revealed a surprising connection between the two “men” pursuing her within the white room.

Penny Dreadful delivers another elegantly constructed episode that delights in weaving its own mythology around existing genre...

This review contains spoilers.

3.3 Good And Evil Braided Be

John Clare starts to retrace his memories through London to find where his family resides now and attempts to take care of them from afar. Vanessa continues her relationship with Dr Sweet, unaware of his true identity and his designs upon her and an encounter with a vampire offers her a dire warning. Ethan and Hecate’s uneasy alliance leaves a trail of bodies in their wake, but it makes for easy tracking for Sir Malcolm and Kaetenay. Elsewhere, Lily and Dorian’s plan starts off with their first recruit in their war against men. It’s decidedly… bloody.

Doubling remains at the heart of Penny Dreadful and once again, the title offers a quick glimpse into the episode’s ongoing »

‘Penny Dreadful’ Creator Talks Season 3, Vanessa’s Demons and the American West

4 May 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At the end of the second season of “Penny Dreadful,” the show’s characters were scattered to the four winds, having vanquished one formidable foe but at great personal cost. In the May 1 third-season premiere of the Showtime drama, the Victorian characters at the heart of the drama began to take their first steps out of self-imposed isolation.

But as creator John Logan explained in a recent interview, “Penny Dreadful’s” protagonists still have a long way to go before they’re reunited and able to take on the grave new challenges they’ll face this year. Vanessa Ives (Eva Green), Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) and Malcolm Murray (Timothy Dalton) began the new season on separate continents, two of them far from their usual London haunts. The Creature (Rory Kinnear) was shivering in the Arctic, and his creator, Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), was suffering the after-effects of yet another relationship gone wrong, »

Penny Dreadful Season 3 Review

2 May 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The grand, ghastly Guignol that is Showtime’s Penny Dreadful ended its thrilling second season by entering a new act, one that found its myriad characters scattered to the winds without any clear adversary or obstacle to reunite them.

Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) had departed to Africa, both to bury his slain friend Sembene and to find new purpose. Ethan (Josh Hartnett) was in chains, being extradited to America to stand trial for horrific crimes committed by his lupine alter ego. The Creature (Rory Kinnear) had struck out for the Arctic, in self-imposed exile. And despite remaining in London, Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) was so devastated by losing Lily (Billie Piper) to the flirtations of Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney) that he’d turned to the needle.

“So we walk alone,” Ethan’s parting words to Vanessa last year, are still ringing in everyone’s ears – especially, »
