Penny For Your Thoughts: Nightcomers


Hey Penny Dreadful Fans! What an episode am I right?! This season has been all about these witches and Evelyn Poole terrorizing Vanessa Ives so this episode we went back in time three years to witness Vanessa taking control of her powers. Guest staring this week is the lovely Patti Lupone. Last time we got to see her, it was next door to the lovely coven ran by Fiona Goode in American Horror Story where Patty portrayed a religious women who ended up killing her son and husband with a hatred for witchcraft. Now she is a cut wife who performs abortions and  indulges in witchcraft all in a days work. Lets get into it!

This episode is set in this little shabby cottage out by this creepy looking tree that looks like its from “The Conjuring” movie. Alright we are feeling bad vibes. Vanessa stands outside all night until the Cut-Wife comes out to release Vanessa from a  spell so she can pass the fence of this cottage. To do so she grabbed Vanessa’s…. well …. and rubbed some blood on Vanessa’s forehead.  Alright off to a weird start.

Patti looks terrible! She has two different eye colors, her hair is everywhere, and she obviously has not taken a shower nor visited Lush in a good while. I am living for this look. Patti can do no wrong and she does a great witch!

After the Cut-Wife figures out Vanessa isn’t her for an abortion, she teaches Vanessa how to manipulate her powers. We look over some tarot cards (revealing The Devil) and do some weird face touching and talking about girls we  have kissed. Then one night, Evelyn and her witches show up. We figure out Evelyn is the Cut-Wife’s sister but they obviously hate each other. Evelyn tries to lure the Cut-Wife out of the fence but Vanessa stops her.

Vanessa slowly gains the control of her abilities, meanwhile Evelyn is at this rich neighboring estate charming this man. Next thing you know he is crouched down on the floor naked while Evelyn is whipping him… Okay… You can tell Evelyn is manipulating him to develop a hatred toward the

One night while the Cut-Wife is dying in bed, a angry mob shows up. The Cut-Wife and Vanessa go out to see the crowd and they say the Cut-Wife needs to be burnt alive. So Patti gets a stone thrown at her face and next thing you know, she is hung on that scary tree and burnt alive. It was very sad.


Vanessa gains her strength and emotions back and grabs her belongings from the shelter. She also takes this box that the Cut-Wife left for her with her. Vanessa then goes out to go save her friend from the first season of the show.

It certainly was a fun episode. Yeah, we didn’t get to check in on some of our favorite character… like I want to know how Dorian feels about his encounter last week but that is just me. It’s been wonderful talking with you all about this and I will see you next week!
