IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Storyline

Sydney's emotions are turned inside-out when she once again comes face-to-face with Allison Doren, the murdered Francie's doppelgänger, who was presumed dead but is now a key assassin working for the Covenant. Meanwhile Lauren's search for Lazarey's murderer leads her closer to discovering the connection to Sydney, and Sydney begrudgingly is assigned as Sloane's CIA handler. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

We get to see how Allison killed Francie. To further symbolize their fight between good and evil, Sydney was dressed in white and Allison in black. We can see a picture of Budapest instead of Zürich when Sydney goes to Switzerland to meet Sloane. In the background the towers of Europe's biggest synagogue can be seen. The scene was shot on the rooftop of the Astoria, a famous hotel in Budapest. In "Phase One", when Francie gets killed, the trail of blood from her head goes horizontally. In this episode, the trail of blood goes straight down. In the office that is supposed to be in London there is a lamp that clearly uses an American plug. It seems pretty odd that Sydney, with all her training as super agent, could have just walked towards the lift and looking at the body without even checking the surrounding to see if Alison was nearby to knock her unconscious from the back! That precaution would have been rule no. 1 in the CIA's book of "Things to Look out for". See more »

Goofs

The map that Lauren's contact brings up to show where the call to Lazaray originated shows a pointer in England. Claimed as pointing to London, the pointer is actually nowhere near London and looks like it's pointing nearer to Reading. See more »

Allison is back (and hotter than ever!)
30 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

I'm so glad that I didn't look at Merrin Dungey's page on IMDb to see on how many "Alias" episodes she appeared in total, because then I would have spoiled myself on the most welcome surprise of Season 3 up to this point: the return of Allison Doren, the woman who killed Sydney's friend Francie and impersonated her for the entire second half of Season 2. She re-teams with Sark and they go after a device that can control the launching of Russian nuclear weapons; Sydney and Vaughn must rely on Sloane's help to stop them. It's a credit to Dungey that she has managed to create two entirely different characters in the same TV series (of whom, I must say, I find Allison more interesting). She even has another pretty brutal, but short, fight with Sydney in this episode, and although I was afraid they would bring her back only for an one-off and then they would kill her, thankfully that is not the case. Allison dominates this episode, but the rest of it is fine as well, with Lauren continuously growing as a character and Sloane's interactions with Sydney as fascinating as ever ("The password is Credit Dauphine...for old times' sake"). *** out of 4.
