The Widow’s Assassin

Once, long ago, in a land of monsters and corridors, a fair maiden was captured, and placed in a deep sleep.

She was used to being captured, and she had a hero who rescued her on just such occasions. But this time the hero never came.

And the fair maiden slept on.

Eventually, a King rescued the maiden, and made her his bride, which many wise old women might that tell you is just another way of capturing fair maidens.

And still the fair maiden slept on.

Then, the hero had another stab at rescuing the maiden from her prison, but he was too late. And, more importantly, he had forgotten the rules of fairy tales.

He didn’t slay the dragon.

Let’s revisit my silly predictions and see how wrong they all were.

Seriously though…

Imagine if it hadn’t got renewed and that was it forever.

(Although, I suspect the decision to cut out some scenes which were clearly included in the promotional photos for the episode - Dorian looking at his painting, for example - was motivated by the S2 renewal.)

Let’s just check up on which plotlines are currently dangling as of that finale.

Amy in ‘Asylum of the Daleks’ (7x01)

I’m gonna be honest, I get a bit mad when people shit on Amy for this episode.

She was kidnapped, had her baby stolen(!!!) and her body violated(!!!) by aliens, and has - presumably recently - learned that, on top of everything else, it also left her permanently infertile. I haven’t gone through this myself but if you asked me to guess how someone might feel after such a trauma, I might go for “abused”, “wounded”, “extremely complicated feelings of grief and shame”, maybe even “a damaged perception of self-worth”, “a lack of faith or hope”…I could guess and guess all day, and I wouldn’t even be able to approximate the truth.

So I don’t see “how could she insult poor Rory by thinking he’d give up on her!!” or “lol does Moffat think all women are obsessed with having children??” as appropriate responses in this situation. Rather - try to stop, think, and have a bit of sympathy.

Assorted wild guesses about the Penny Dreadful finale:

  1. Malcolm will die/sacrifice himself. (Sembene will finally breathe a sigh of relief like a weight has been lifted from his shoulders.)
  2. Vanessa will get bitten - by Mina? - but the demon (who still exists within her in some form) will enable her to resist the vampire’s control. Vanessa is now a kickass vampire.
  3. At some point the devil will pretend to be Mina in order to get close to Vanessa again. Something spooky will happen.
  4. It will end on a cliffhanger involving either Ethan going wolfy, the Bride gone wrong somehow, or Dorian’s portrait turning out to be something ridiculously divergent from the book.
  5. (Alternatively, one or more of the above will happen earlier in the episode instead of at the end.)
  6. Victor will revive Brona (possibly in a different way to how he did his previous attempts), but as part of a massive and very irresponsible ploy involving Ethan to lure Caliban into a trap.
  7. It will look like Caliban is about to kill actress girl, but he will have a change of heart at the last second. Alternatively, he is threatening her in order to keep her quiet about something.
  8. Victor will shoot at something and miss
  9. There will be some kind of endearingly silly Universal-style monster matchup involving two or more of the following: the master vampire, Ethan, Caliban, (the Bride????)
  10. There will be a link, however tenuous, between Dorian and the Egyptology.
  11. Vanessa isn’t an incarnation of Amunet and never was. (Remember “Amunet, girl? No, much older.”) Both the vampire and Lucifer (oh, and Ferdinand Lyle) have been mistaken about this the whole time.
  12. Lyle and Madame Kali, who both return this episode, will finally explain wtf has been going on demon-wise.
  13. BONUS: It turns out that the big bad vampire is really sad about his BFF getting killed in episode 1. ALTERNATIVE BONUS: It turns out there are absolutely shitloads of them (could they be “the hidden ones”?)

Fact #1141

classicwhofacts:

The Rani is Bonnie Langford’s biggest fan, and is actually ready to cosplay Mel at a moment’s notice.

It seems she even regenerated into a ginger with big hair so she could cosplay Mel more efficiently.
