Read only if you want to learn more about the “Penny Dreadful” Episode 8 Finale “Grand Guignol” spoilers including a brief recap of Episode 7 “Possession.”
“Penny Dreadful” Season 1 Episode 7 “Possession” aired on June 22, 2014. It was directed by James Hawes and written by John Logan. Even before they set foot on their journey in “Night Work,” Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) has been pursued by a mysterious entity that only brought turmoil to her and the people around her. It all started in “Closer Than Sisters.”
In “Possession,” she had been taken again to the dark side for the second time. Sir Malcolm, Ethan and Sembene tried to help, but they got taunted by the creature instead. “What Death Can Join Together” ended with Vanessa mysteriously levitating and spinning in mid-air. It was witnessed by Sir Malcolm and the others.
Sir Malcolm was there during one of her episodes. He tried to ask her about Mina’s whereabouts, but he only got dangerously flying objects and spinning furniture. The others were no exception. Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) was the one who examined her and sedated her. They called on Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) for assistance. It seemed that he was the only one who got pure intentions on getting her cured.
Later, the creature, who has copied Ethan, visited Vanessa again and told her about becoming his “queen.” On the other hand, the real Ethan was teaching Victor on how to use a gun for his own safety. Sir Malcolm continued to pry about Mina with the possessed Vanessa, but Ethan shooed him away.
They called on Father Matthews (Oliver Cotton) for the Last Rites, but the man only got bitten by Vanessa. She hurt and threw everyone except for Ethan. The American gunslinger put a gun on her upon her previous request to “pull the trigger” if something happens. Ethan, who removed the gun, surprisingly did the exorcism by himself.
SPOILER ALERT: “Penny Dreadful” Season 1 Finale Episode 8 “Grand Guignol” airs on Sunday, June 29, 2014 at 10:00 p.m. on Showtime. It was directed by James Hawes and written by John Logan.
TV Guide posted that the “Grand Guignol” will start with Vanessa and Sir Malcolm as they face their worst nightmares. “Possession” previously ended with Vanessa returning to her normal self and learning about Mina’s (Olivia Llewellyn) location. It was said that it was located in the Theatre du Grand Guignol.
According to Wikipedia, “Grand Guignol” meant “Theatre of Big Puppet Show.” The said place was actually famous in the Victorian era. It got noticed for the almost-real horror shows that usually got the patrons to vomit or become sick.
Moreover, the “Penny Dreadful” Season 1 finale will straighten some of the loopholes from the previous episode. It might also include finding Mina, who has been the true purpose of Sir Malcolm and his team of hunters. The promotional photos posted on Spoiler TV also feature a soul mate-searching Creature (Rory Kinnear) and a sick Brona Croft (Billie Piper).
Can they find Mina? Will she still be normal? How about Brona Croft who was now sick with tuberculosis? What can happen to Vanessa after the end of their quest? Can Victor find a bride for his First Born? Can we see Dorian’s portrait in the finale?
