amazing

Without a doubt the most amazing episode of Penny Dreadful (A blade of grass), and one of the best episodes of any show lately. Eva G. surprised me so much i couldn't believe it. So much effort in one episode.. The only thing i was thinking the whole episode was "why is there no Oscar reward for outstanding performance in a television show". Bravo miss Ives! It was dark, sublime, serious, full of great philosophical and theological questions. The movement of the camera was just perfect. Jumps between consciousness and unconsciousness were done without any disruption of the story. It's just a great episode, period. I hope the show continues the good work.
