So, hey, Showtime released a preview edition of the season 2 premiere, “Fresh Hell,” a couple of weeks early. Since I’ve got Once Upon a Time on Sundays as well, it seemed simpler to watch it early and not try to cram too much into May 3.
I’ll have enough trouble on May 10 when OUaT is two hours and the second episode of Penny Dreadful will air as well. And I’m sure someone on staff will write a review of this episode as well. So might as well get in while the getting is good. So enough background. “Fresh Hell” (because presumably no one likes a stale Hell) is basically a refresher episode for those who don’t remember what happened June 2014. And to ease in those tuning in for the first time.
Be warned: not a whole lot happens except for foreshadowing and laying out the framework of season 2. Vanessa is going for a stroll and admiring the children at play when Evelyn (Helen McCrory, now a series regular) hits her with occult visions. Given this seems to happen a day or two after Vanessa had visions of the vampire and a few days or weeks after being possessed by her personal demon, she seems oddly surprised.
Or maybe the visions are just more torturous. There. are. four. fingers.
Ethan wakes up the morning after the bounty hunters found him, and he wolfed out onscreen for the first time. Thus establishing the timeline, sort of. He has some objection against waking up in pools of blood surrounded by corpses.
Go figure. After a night of drinking drunken sailor blood, I have SUCH a hangover. This takes him back to Malcolm’s house. Malcolm isn’t there, so Ethan wants to talk to Vanessa outside the house for no good reason other than that so the stunt guys can stage a carriage attack. They go for a carriage ride and bald pale scarred creeps attack the carriage.
No, they’re not vampires, silly. We’ll find out later that they’re called Nightcomers.
But basically they’re naked witches who can grow illusory hair and clothing. No, I’m not a pale bald vampire. I'm a pale bald witch.
I don't get why people fail to appreciate the difference. At Mina's funeral, Malcolm’s wife Gladys insists that they live separately from now on. Which would be a bit more affecting if we actually saw the two of them have a present-day husband-and-wife relationship.
As it is, it frees Malcolm to hang out with his Monster Squad buddies in London and gives Evelyn the chance to seduce him later. He goes home and Ethan and Vanessa tell him everything.
Vanessa doesn’t want anyone’s help (why?) and goes off to her room to manifest spiders from her crucifix or some such. Caliban is getting a job at a waxworks. Given how easily he gets jobs, one wonders why Brona couldn't find work and turned to prostitution His new employers, the Putneys, have a blind daughter so there’s romance ahoy. Meanwhile, the husband plans to make a fortune from Caliban’s scarred face. Which given that no one seems to react to it, seems unlikely but we’ll see what happens.
You’re sure my face won’t be problem. Face? What’s wrong with your face. Back at the lab, Victor apparently finds himself attracted to Billie Piper’s body double. There’s a great deal of stroking of her naked body as it soaks in the resurrection tank, filled with waters from the Lazarus Pit. I’ll admit, I’m kind of unclear where this is going. Victor wants Brona, and Caliban wants Brona. But Caliban kinda likes Lavinia, who seems happy with his face, scars and all.
So. creator and creation are going to fight over Billie Piper’s overbite, but Caliban has a fallback gal? We’ll see how that works out. Meanwhile, Evelyn is bathing in virgins’ blood at Stately Poole Manor. She then talks with the witches and her daughter, Hecate, who has the most stereotypical witch name this side of Glinda.
They screwed up by failing to capture Vanessa, but we learn that Hecate now knows that Ethan is a werewolf. A “Lupus Dei,” which sounds like the love child of the actors who played Willy and Casey on Mission: Impossible. After Evelyn does a Darth Vader and kills one of her minions that failed her, she tells Hecate to “deal” with Ethan. Which if this were another Sunday evening show with witches, would probably mean that Hecate would disguise herself as Ethan’s wife back in New York using a six-leaved clover, get pregnant with his child, and emotionally blackmail him into staying with her. Makes sense to me. But since this is Penny Dreadful. it’ll probably involve lots of naked sex.
Oh well, I'll cheer myself up with the thought of Lana Parilla playing Vanessa. *sigh*. It’s back to Victor’s lab for a rebirth scene right out of Bride of Frankenstein. It’s all very frantic with the lightning and the bubbling liquid and Caliban getting blasted back for no particular plot reason. Congratulations to the director and the director of photography: it must have taken planning to rival the invasion of Normandy to get so many shots of Billie Piper’s body double and not quite show her face. Creator, why do we never see her face and her naked body in the same shot.
For the final scene, Vanessa goes to her room, glares at Ethan in the hallway, and then recreates the occult ritual from her vision. Eva Green and the makeup artists go wild in that season 1 way that we all know and love. Vanessa turns three shades of mauve, moans and chants and bleeds more blood than blue whales possess, and prays and snarls and flops around. Oh, Lord, deliver unto me an Emmy. Not to be outdone, Helen McCrory draws an inverted cross on her forehead, prays to Lucifer, and moans, chants, flops around, and probably passes a kidney stone. There’s a new female overactress in town, baby.
So overall, it looks a lot like season 1. Everything is about Vanessa, Victor is involved on the periphery while Caliban has his own plot which in no way touches the other main characters. Billie Piper gets to have sex with two more men. Malcolm isn’t with his wife. Sambene makes enigmatic statements and we find out nothing about him.
Ethan is very very unhappy about being a werewolf. Dorian Gray will show up when the writers damn well feel like it. No sign of Simon Russell Beale as everyone’s favorite eccentric Egyptologist, although he does get an upfront credit this season. Good for him. Unless they vary wildly from what we see in this, the first of ten episodes, it’s going to be up to Helen McCrory to bring it home as the face of evil this year. Which is good, because we apparently never met the Master last year (Dracula?).
This year we have a villain who plots and schemes and we can actually see her doing stuff from her point of view. But that’s just my opinion, I could be wrong. What do you think.
