Penny Dreadful 1.08 Review: “Grand Guignol”

Thus ends the first season of Penny Dreadful, which pretty much highlights everything the series has done well and the couple things it could be doing better. Again, there’s a very sharp structure for this episode, which builds up to a strong and tense climax and resolves with plenty of story that poses as many questions as it does answers (and not in an annoying way). There is, of course, fantastic acting from everyone who needs to make lasting impressions in this finale. And yet there’s also the sense that some of these stories might have been better handled at various points throughout the season.
